Everybody’s favorite singing cousin Monica doesn’t seem to know how she earned the nickname “Goonica,” so her fans thought they would let her know.
“I have absolutely no idea why y’all call me Goonica! Anyone care to explain,” she asked. “Why don’t you all tell me below! Just a little Morning #MoTalk.”

So of course, Twitter obliged.
Missy Elliott brought up the "So Gone" receipts to offer a bit of clarity.
Because anyone that talk in 3rd person most def a time bomb???????? when you said just to show you Monica not having it???? you talking like that’s not you????????

In the 2003 hit, Monica famously raps "Kick down your doors and smack your chick/Just to show you Monica not havin' that."
But it was a Twitter user who goes by NellieTheGawd, who brought out the video evidence. On her appearance on FOX’s morning talk show The Real, we caught an up-close and personal view of “Goonica” in action.
In the clip, she appears to be discussing slick-mouthed haters.

Someone else shared a personal anecdote.
