WASHINGTON: Hip-hop superstar Missy Elliott is ready to love again but not until Mr Right comes along. The 32-year-old rapper was so scarred by her parents’ dysfunctional relationship that she has spent years trying to come to terms with her father’s domestic abuse.

But according to rate the music, Missy, who has recently disclosed that her cousin raped her as a child, is in no rush to settle down. She says, "I’ve been through so much that being by myself is a peace of mind. I don’t need a relationship to make me happy. I most definitely don’t hate men at all."She adds, "Every man is not a molester, every man is not my dad. But I don’t take no s***. I have a radar for bad guys. It might be one wrong thing he says, but I’m quick to take notice."
