August 1, 2008: "Missy Elliot Planning To Adopt Children"
Missy Elliott is planning to adopt children because she is so terrified of giving birth. The 'Get Ur Freak On' singer admits she wants to have a family but is scared about the pain involved in a natural birth.
She said: "I most definitely want kids, but I'll probably adopt. I don't know if I can take the kind of pain women go through with childbirth."
"Maybe in the year 2020 you could just pop a baby out and it'd be fine. But right now I'd rather just adopt."
Missy, 37, also revealed she keeps in shape by playing on the computer game 'Dance Dance Revolution' in amusement arcades.
She added to People magazine: "I do 'Dance Dance Revolution'. I'm not as good as the little kids that come in the arcade. Their little feet go crazy fast. I'm not that fast, but I'm good on it!"
