Hello all! So there has been some on and off chatter about a biopic on the late R&B singer, Aaliyah. Finally a trailer has been released! Now before we move on to the trailer, let’s talk about this TV movie.
The movie will be premiering November 15th at 8pm on Lifetime and it is titled, Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B. The role of Aaliyah will be played by Nickelodeon star, Alexandra Shipp. Also, the movie is based the book Aaliyah: More Than a Woman. I absolutely love Aaliyah. She was one of my favorite artist growing up. However, I don’t have high hopes for this TV movie. Why? Because Lifetime ALWAYS comes short when it comes to portraying a celebrity’s life.
A few weeks ago, I watched a Lifetime TV movie based on late actress Brittany Murphy. I HATED IT! I was a fan of Brittany Murphy and that movie did her no justice. They did a horrible casting job AND the movie was just a piece of SH**! The Versace movie was also a piece of crap. Aaliyah deserves more than a TV movie. Her legacy deserves a big screen production like Selena or Tina Turner. I would’ve even settled for VH1 producing a film about her because the TLC movie was good. I’m just not looking forward to watching this film because I know I’ll be disappointed…
Take a look at the preview clip.
