Kate Bush And Missy Elliott To Be Admitted To The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame

It was recently announced that Kate Bush and Missy Elliott will be admitted to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in the latter months of this year. 

The Running Up The Hill star and Get Ur Freak On rapper have received the most votes to be inducted into the recognized music institution. They will be taking a place alongside Rage Against The Machine, George Michael, The Spinners, and Sheryl Crow. 

Missy is going to achieve another feat, which is to become the first-ever female rapper to be admitted to the Hall Of Fame. She was voted to be inducted as part of the Class of 2023. 

Taking to the micro-blogging website, Twitter, Missy expressed her excitement. In her words, this is a big deal for her and her sisters in the field of hip-hop, who can now showcase their contributions. 

On the other hand, Bush gushed about being in shock when she found out that she was being inducted into the Hall of Fame. This is the fourth time that she has been nominated for admission. 

She went on to thank everyone who had voted for her and expressed how honored she felt for being inducted. Bush said she was also looking forward to finding out all about the secret handshake. 

The ceremony to induct the two into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame is all set to be held on the 3rd of November in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. 

Along with the induction of the Class of 2023, various other performers will also be receiving rewards. Chaka Khan, the well-known singer, Bernie Taupin, the lyricist, and AI Kooper, the instrumentalist-producer will be given the Musical Excellence Award.

Meanwhile, the Musical Influence Award will go to DJ Kool Herc and Link Wray, the pioneering and well-known rock guitarist. The Ahmet Ertegun Award will also be awarded, but posthumously to Don Cornelius, the Soul Train creator. 

In other news, Hayley Kiyoko has alleged that she was threatened by lawyers right before she held her performance that showcased a couple of drag queens.

The singer took to Instagram to talk about how the local police had given her warnings, saying that she should not invite drag queens to be a part of her performance. According to them, it was a surefire way to flout the new anti-drag restrictions in Tennessee. 

She recalled that while she was doing her soundcheck, she was approached by a couple of law enforcement officers, who informed her that hosting drag queens could lead to legal action against her.

Hayley added that she does not want to put someone in danger or in a position that causes any harm. But she questioned the absurdity of the threats.

The star was outraged that she was threatened with legal action simply because she wanted to invite some people to join her on stage.

In the words of the 32-year-old, she is proud of the fact that her performances are a safe place for everyone, irrespective of their gender and whom they identify as. Hayley herself identifies as a lesbian.
