There's something to be said for musicians who quit while they're on top of their game. And although fans are often left with some amazing music when musicians go quiet, they sometimes still want more. Here's why a few of your favorites musicians have disappeared off the radar.

Missy Elliott was a mainstay on MTV thanks to her eye-popping videos and unforgettable beats. The hip-hop singer and producer had a hit streak in the late '90s and early 2000s, and is best known for her smash hits "Work It" and "Get Ur Freak On." That's why it's a little weird that nobody's heard much from her recently, besides the occasional appearance with another artist — such as that famous 2015 Super Bowl halftime pop-in with Katy Perry. But most of the world had no idea why she actually disappeared.

An autoimmune illness called Graves' disease began affecting the star around 2008, although she wasn't aware until she tried to press down the brakes of her car one day — and discovered that she couldn't, which almost caused her to crash. She had already been suffering from tremors and noticed she couldn't do normal motor tasks like holding a pen without a lot of effort. That's when doctors pinpointed the thyroid condition.

The singer then underwent radiation treatment and now claims to be fully healed. In the last few years, she's released a few standalone singles — and is now finally teasing a new album.
