  • Missy Elliott Surprising Her 'Funky White Sister' on 'Ellen' Is Exactly What You Need to See Today

It looks like the two long lost sisters are friends now - Elliott even pulled the "it's a video" while taking a selfie with Halsey.

Self-proclaimed "funky white sister" Mary Halsey went on "Ellen" Thursday to perform her viral rendition of "Work It", which gained steam online in August after Elliot tweeted Halsey's hilarious performance. "I never expected this", Halsey told host Ellen DeGeneres. She revealed that she learned "Work It" in 2003 to compete in a karaoke competition then, and soon it became her go-to song. While Mary was bringing down the house mid-song, Missy sneakily crept behind her and sang along. The best part about the performance, however, is that Halsey had no idea the rapper would be joining her.

Explaining her appreciation of Mary's love for her music, Missy said: 'When she said "Missy's funky white sister", I'm like, "Who is this?"

However, the iPhone SE - Apple's only offering with a compact 4-inch display, also failed to make the cut to 2018 range. Hall isn't the only analyst who fears the XR price tag will depress sales of the 8 Plus.

Missy Elliott's "Work It" is not a song for the faint of heart: the early-2000s classic rap track has some seriously tongue-twisting lines.

Halsey also admitted that she always wanted to go viral, but didn't really think it would happen until Elliott posted the video herself and praised Halsey's performance. This might just be the most pure video on the internet. "So when I listen, I'm like, she knows all the words, but the sound effects-she made the elephant noise, all of that".

Later, Halsey got a gift from the Ellen show: a rhinestone-encrusted jacket that read "Missy's funky white sister" on the back.
