It’s All Dance and No Play for Missy Elliott

Missy Elliott’s a busy woman – her seventh album’s coming out soon, and she’s on MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew Thursday night – but she still thinks about settling down and having kids … some day.

“I most definitely want kids, but I’ll probably adopt kids,” the 37-year-old tells PEOPLE. “I don’t know if I can take that kind of pain [of labor]. Maybe in the year 2020 you could just pop a baby out and it’d be fine. But right now I’d rather just adopt.”
