7. “Gossip Folks”-[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Missy Elliot[/lastfm]
After Missy Elliot lost a lot of weight, she wrote “Gossip Folks” to describe all the things the paparazzi was saying about her.
Her video for the song has been oft voted as one of the best music videos of the previous decade and for good reason: Elliot uses the snarky, gossip-oriented mentality of the high school set as the main theme of her video.
It’s also a good reminder to adults to stop acting as sophomoric as, well, high school sophomores.
