what a absolute disaster that movie was.
you know what bothered me about wendy williams and this movie…
so wendy made a career of getting in people’s business back in the 90s,
but she couldn’t get any of this right????
the public knew more about aaliyah than the people involved with this trash,
wendy had an interview with the hollywood reporter and she said:
Why did you become involved?
Lifetime needed to tell this story correctly. Fans won’t say, “Oh, my God, how could you disgrace her memory?” And nosy people like me who want to find out things will also be fine.
What kinds of things?
Her upbringing. How did she meet R. Kelly? What did her parents say when their 15-year-old baby girl brought home a 28-year-old man? Aaliyah was a take-charge young lady with strong opinions about her career. This movie tells all those stories without being distasteful.
aaliyah = cassie
r kelly = omar epps
her brother = drake
missy = maya from girlfriends
timbaland = ginuwine
dame dash = chico debarge
wendy’s color issues definitely rang true in this movie.
everyone was light skin when they wasn’t.
there was no talk about how females picked on aaliyah in school,
nothing about how aaliyah was insecure about her lazy eye,
and when the hell did aaliyah perform half those songs?where are the youtubes of these shenanigans?
the r.kelly storyline was wack and completely rushed,
the ending violated,
and alexandra shipp didn’t pull off aaliyah’s swagg.
all in all,
the movie was boring and shouldn’t have been done.
if the family didn’t approve the rights to use aaliyah’s music in the movie,
why even make it?
wendy always criticizing movies when they aren’t done right,
but she completely dropped the ball with this one.
she didn’t even get aaliyah’s song title right!
… black twitter murdered her life tonight.
if you go to her mentions,
you probably gonna see police tape.
i wonder if she will address it on hot topics?
