This is some ‘help me Obi-Wan and AUDI, you’re our only hope’ type shit… M.I.A. and Janelle Monae are both still very much alive, yet they decided the say F*CK IT to the flight, and perform instead together via hologram on stage this week for Audi from opposites side of the country.

“I wish I were in the audience because I’m sure it looked cooler from the audience, but it felt great,” Monae said after finishing her 40-minute set with M.I.A.’s hologram. “I felt M.I.A.’s spirit up there.”

Check out a taste of their version of Bad Girls below:

!! OMG, Get Ur Freak On AGAIN: Missy Elliott to drop new album in June !!

If you’re wondering who will give you 2014’s “SONG OF THE SUMMER” — our bets are on Missy Elliott!
According to Timbaland, both him and Missy are readying albums for June, and Timbo took some time to speak a bit about their upcoming plan of attack, saying:

“Right now, we’re just preparing to get both our videos, our first singles, shot kinda at the same time”, he said.
“We want to do it as a movement and spontaneously… I just don’t want to move too ahead of her, and she doesn’t wanna move too ahead of me.”

We really hope that Missy can bring it with this album! The music world could use some of her style right about now, and I’m praying to the heavens that she doesn’t crack under label pressure and end up pairing up with like David Guetta or Swedish House Mafia or someone… That would be devastating! BUT I definitely think that Missy would never do us like that! Are you looking forward to some new Missy?
