The Little Girl from Missy Elliott's 'Work It' Video Is All Grown Up
"Missy, thank you so much for the opportunity to dance for you and now carve a path of my own," Alyson Stoner says
She’s still working it.
The clip features performances of “Work It,” “Gossip Folks” and “I’m Really Hot,” with the original dancers doing the original choreography.
At the end of the clip, Stoner, 21 (now an actress-singer-choreographer), gives a shout-out to the woman who got the ball rolling for her: “Missy, thank you so much for the opportunity to dance for you and now carve a path of my own.”
As for Stoner’s favorite memory from working with Elliott?
“To this day, I remember vividly Missy Elliott, Ludacris, and my grandma riding in a golf cart to set. My grandma went back to Ohio and told her bowling friends, ‘Guess what? I was riding to set with Missy and Ridiculous!’ ” she told BuzzFeed.
Stoner, of course, has been a star in her own right for a while: She was a Disney Channel mainstay and appeared in Cheaper by the Dozen, Camp Rock, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and Step Up All In.
