Aaliyah Dana Haughton died 10 years ago today in a fiery plane crash on August 25, 2001 in the Bahamas after filming the music video for her single “Rock the Boat” and today many have honor her memory.
As I was perusing videos of the fallen star, I came across several interviews that revealed how humble and beautiful Aaliyah was even though her star was steadily rising.
A few I found interesting were Beyonce’s interview of Aaliyah on the red carpet of the 2001 MTV Video awards (where Aaliyah and Diddy also presented an award), Aaliyah’s final BET 106&Park appearance (where she premiered her “We Need A Resolution” video), and Aaliyah’s appearance on The Late Show.
Check out those clips PLUS a few photos below:

I also spotted a few photos over at SandraRose (who actually took this iconic photo of Lisa Left Eye Lopez, T-Box and Aaliyah)
RIP Aaliyah Dana Haughton
(January 16, 1979 – August 25, 2001)
