Missy kicked off Wireless stage

Missy Elliott couldn't 'get her freak on' after she got kicked off the stage at Wireless for exceeding her set time limit.

The five-time Grammy award winner was in the middle of Lose Control when the music got turned off, and she was forced to leave the stage amidst a stream of boos despite announcing that she was the "flyest s**t in the house".

An Adidas-wearing Missy - real name Melissa Elliott - was 20 minutes late for her set at London's Hyde Park for the second day of the music festival, and tried to make up for it by staying on for extra time, after performing hits like Work It and Pass That Dutch.

She was followed by US rapper Snoop Dogg, who got the audiences jumping to his cover of House Of Pain's Jump Around, as well as crowd favourites such as Gin & Juice, Who Am I (What's My Name?) and Signs.

He dedicated a number of songs to the "beautiful ladies" including Beautiful, Sensual Seduction and Drop It Like It's Hot, before performing a tribute to his West Coast buddy, the late Tupac Shakur.

"Tupac, we love you, we miss you, rest in peace," he led the crowds.

Jay-Z headlines the closing night of Wireless, supported by Lily Allen in one of her 'final' live performances, Slash and Friendly Fires.
