Hip-hop star Missy Elliott was forced to back out of attending Sunday's (29AUG04) MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS - because she couldn't handle the high heels she decided to don on the night.

The WORK IT rapper was expected to attend the star-studded show, but instead only attended an after-party at Miami, Florida, hot-spot MANSION, where she partied with Outkast.

She says, "I didn't get a chance to see the show. I got there and had on shoes that were too high for me and I had to leave. They were CHRISTIAN DIORs."
