I personally think that the producer totally dissed Aaliyah . I found that movie kind of based on what was told & not what really happened through out her life. It was too short & it was on lmn? Like really? I think that you guys should go all out just as they did for notorious or Selena. I mean I think Aaliyah deserves that much. It was kind of disappointing. You could of done better. Or maybe not? Lol zendaya would of been a perfect person to play Aaliyah’s role. It needs to be long & also better. Put people who actually looks like the story you are telling. Make us feel the movie & enjoy it rather than watching it & getting distracted by something else cause it did NOT eye Catching. It may have had a lot of viewers because everybody was just waiting for a movie of Aaliyah but to my surprise it wasn’t really that great. I Think it should of been better. In a way that it catches our attention & Makes us want to buy more tickets to movies to watch it or to buy the dvd. But no, all we got is a short film. Shows how much Aaliyah is really missed.

I think thats NOT RIGHT because zendaya have talent to play the role and ALSO she dont have to be that black to play Aaliyah role AleXandra is not that black .she is kindof Zendaya color.

when she said ” black enough” I’m pretty sure that meant the attitude not the race Aaliyah had a real sexy,yet urban, tom boy swag zandaya just don’t give that vibe off to many

im 17 my self and I personally think that Zendaya should of taken the acting part of the beautiful Aaliyah (R.I.P) because she is such a good actor I love watching her on ‘shake it up’ and not to be rude I don’t even no who Alexandra Shipp is tbh. But I guess that’s just part of life I wish the very best to both Zendaya and Alexandra. Aaliyah will always be remembered she was such an inspiration and a true beauty I look up to her so much.

I’m a fan of Alexandra myself, I know this movie isn’t really right but she doesn’t need to be black to be in the role. (she is black but for some people something’s always wrong) I personally think Aaliyah was a talented & amazing person but there’s no need to be hating on Alexandra. This is to all of the fans who annoy the sh*t out of Alexandra on twitter. Dear fans, don’t watch the movie if you don’t want, but stop hating on Alexandra or Zendaya because you don’t know what amazing things they’ve did in their past. They’re both talented and even though you love Aaliyah so much that doesn’t mean you can stop Zendaya nor Alexandra from doing what they want. Don’t reply to this comment because I’ve seen enough of arguments.

Zendaya show what an intelligent, strong, and beautiful woman she is with her statement. Wise beyond her years, and there are a lot of people older than her that can learn a lot about grace and respect from this young woman. Hopefully she will go on to find even more success in her endeavors. With her thoughts and views, this Aaliyah project is clearly not right for her, especially with Wendy Williams now on board as EP.

African american racist, no big shock, the only racism worse is the politically correct non african american guilty liberal reverse racist. I am just shocked any media dared to even suggest that this predominate racism in the USA exists, how else do we explain Obama being elected not just once but twice!

I’m pretty sure all racism (no matter who it’s done by) is the worst. Racism, sexism, and any type of -ism that is bad isn’t something that evil liberals created. Those things actually do exist. I don’t agree with most liberals either because with them everything has to be PC, but these days people are so caught up in trying to prove every single last thing is PC that they miss when things actually are racist, sexist, or any type of -ist that is bad.

Zendaya got robbed of the aaliyah role and I’m pissed off by the shoddy way the movie producers tried covering it up.then didn’t waste time replacing her with another actress less known.hope the movie flops, zendaya deserves better than b list lifetime roles anyway!

Aaliyah wasn’t a superstar? You’re an even bigger idiot than I thought you were. Aaliyah was one of the biggest stars on this planet when she died.
