In a revelation that may shock many slightly-older fans of music, the younger generation of Super Bowl viewers had no idea who Missy Elliot was when she arrived on stage to perform with Katy Perry.

Even worse, instead of 'googling' the artist, many took to Twitter to tweet about it, asking 'Who is Missy Elliot'?

Some even posted on Facebook that Katy Perry was "going to make this Missy Elliot girl blow up".

Older fans expressed thier discontent on Twitter, saying 'Some people don't know Missy Elliot? SMDH' (Shaking My Damn Head).

Missy Elliot thanked fans on Twitter for the love following her performance with Katy Perry during the Halftime Show.

Elliot last released an album ten years ago, in 2005.

 

However, it could have been worse. Some viewers didn't even know what the Super Bowl was.
