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*
