So This Is How They Re-Created The “Whitney” Cover?

Whitney_Houston-Whitney-Frontali personally think ^this album from whitney houston is her best.
i listened to it for the first time like a year ago and was blown away.
every song on her second album sounds good.
no skippables.
so as you know,
angela bassett is directing the whitney houston biopic for lifetime.
they casted “america’s next top model”,
and most lowkey successful,
yaya dacosta to play the legend.
extremely big heels to fill.
well the first image from the movie was released.
it happened to be yaya recreating whitney’s “whitney” cover and well…

YaYa-DaCosta_612x716tumblr_inline_mr1p997DXh1qz4rgpwell before i say anything,
i will say yaya looks beautiful.
tyra def taught her.
now onto me saying something…
i feel like something is off about the picture.
i know its not going to be absolutely perfect,
but something isn’t connecting with the original.
just my opinion tho.
yaya is a good actress from what ive seen of her.
lets hope she brings justice to the role.

lowkey: am i the only one waiting for the chris brown biopic?
i feel that movie will be absolutely amazing.
i just pray i’m still alive when they make it.

  1. To me this girl isn’t as pretty as Whitney was. Whitney looked so young and fresh on the cover. This girl looks old to me. Anyway, glad to hear Angela Bassett is directing.

  2. It’s not the best picture but I see the similarities, it’s an ok start I’ll hold usage menu until the trailer drops. I have faith in yaya and Angela.

  3. Some things should be left alone and this is one of them. Whitney is such a Icon and when she was on top of her game no one could even come close to touching her. This picture looks awful and I guess I am just a die hard fan. Im not feeling this girl at all, she is no wear near as pretty and looks nothing even close to Whitney. Yes I am feeling some type of way about this. Whitney deserves better than this.

  4. I think the problem is the wig (and maybe that she looks kinda old compared to the album cover). They most likely found that in the bargain bin in some hood beauty supply store.

If you wouldn't say it on live TV with all your family and friends watching, without getting canceled or locked up, don't say it on here. Stay on topic, no SPAM, and keep it respectful. Thanks!
