Welp… the ‘highly anticipated’ Aaliyah biopic was a total fail… at least in the eyes of the twitterverse!
‘Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B’ aired last night (November 15, 2014) on LifetimeTV and the television network’s treatment of the life & times of Aaliyah Haughton was not exactly as bad as they say, but it was bad enough to be totally hilarious.
The film was terribly cast, horribly written and being that Aaliyah’s family was dead set against it (click HERE if you missed that), there was no Aaliyah music anywhere in the flick.
Lifetime also tiptoed around Aaliyah’s scandelous relationship with R. Kelly, to whom she married when she was 15 (he was 27), treating it as a love story gone awry. One scene even included a heart-to-heart between the pair where Aaliyah (played by Alexandra Shipp) states, “Eighteen feels like an eternity from now.” *sigh*

It’s bad enough the fallen star was mistaken for her ‘musical foe’ Ciara on the red carpets at her own movie premiere (click HERE if you missed that), but could the “Knock You Down” star finally be prepared to issue a mea culpa to the pop star phenomenon, while getting some of that Beyonce star dust on her forehead?
The word on the curb is “yes,” at least that’s what Timbaland is leading us to believe.

Check out this new previously unreleased song from Keri Hilson produced by super producer Timbaland called “The Ring”. I’m still trying to figure out if I like it or not. The beat is OK…but I was expected so much more on the vocals. I dunno. I love Ms. KeriBaby but this song’s got me feeling some kinda way right now…
