Elliott Hurt By Critics' Comments

Rapper MISSY ELLIOTT is still hurt by a review she received more than six years ago - because it questioned her friendship with late R+B star AALIYAH. The young singer, who worked closely with Elliott on several occasions, died in a plane crash in the Bahamas in August 2001 after shooting the video for her single Rock the Boat. Elliott was devastated by the news and agreed to perform a benefit concert in memory of her pal - but still shudders when she remembers what critics said of her emotional performance. She says, "One time I did an event for Aaliyah after she passed away and they said I didn't know the words to her records. "That really bothered me a lot."
