Since the tweet, speculation has been rife that the Work It star will be announcing a tour soon. For most it’s quite a mystery though, as the only upcoming performance for Missy is a headlining gig at the FYF Festival in July.

A few publications have reached out to Missy’s management, but they have not commented yet.
