*OK, Lifetime’s Aaliyah biopic aired last night (11-15-16) and it’ll probably come as no surprise that a lot of folks including Timbaland (Aaliyah’s producer, along with Missy Elliot), thought it was genuine grade A crap!
Timbo was so pissed that during the airing of the film, he took to social media (Instagram) and let it all hang loose. He also went so far as to urge people to boycott “Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B,” using a bunch of hilarious memes. Here a few:
Once the movie was over, the producer had no problem gloating to fans who watched the flick anyway … taunting them and the network with these video posts:
TMZ noted that Timbaland wasn’t the only celebrity who had choice words for the movie. DL Hughley put his two cents in — saying: “Aaliyah is the Soul Plane of Lifetime!”
Oh yeah, there’s this from Zaendaya Coleman, who was booted from the flick and replaced by Alexandra Shipp.
When she was asked about the film, according to TheYBF, Zendaya said she wouldn’t be watching it because she’s detached from the project (and she’d be on a plane). But check out her reaction when told the film has not been positive. It appears she’s relieved and validated.
