People Already Hate Lifetime’s Aaliyah Movie

By Karen Fratti 

aaliyahmove_lifetimeLifetime is premiering “Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B” on November 15th and the hate is already spreading through social media. After the Brittany Murphy biopic flopped, the negative social chatter should be expected. But there’s one elephant in the room that Lifetime wishes fans would forget: that her family didn’t approve or want the film made, resulting a recasting of the lead role early on. Other issues? Let us count the ways.

1)  Iggy Azalea?

2) The casting.

 

3) The fact that this movie will never please everyone.

Aaliyah really is the princess of R&B so without the family’s approval or her music, you can’t expect fans to be pleased. All press is good press, though, right?
