Zendaya Coleman has opted out of the Aaliyah biopic and she won’t be playing the role of the famous singer who died tragically in a place crash. She herself has confirmed the fact by tweeting a message on Twitter.
"Aaliyah has always been a source of inspiration to Zendaya. She was honored to portray her and pay tribute to her...— Zendaya (@Zendaya) June 29, 2014
Her representatives have said that the singer was a source of hope and inspiration for Zendaya and if she wanted to portray her she had to do it her way or the highway.
Lifetime also tweeted about the Zendaya's decision. The tweet states: "We are sad Zendaya will no longer portray Aaliyah. Production is currently on hold."
The production of the biopic has been stalled thanks to this decision by the mercurial star. When she had signed up for the biopic a month back, there were wagging tongues which said that she was too light-skinned to play the Stay Awhile singer.
Others had more meaningless criticism that only complicated things. Zendaya explained on Twitter that she really looked up to Aaliyah and felt that she was a beautiful singer with a difference.
She's been an inspiration and influence in my whole career, her talent still shines brighter then ever, all I wanna do is honor her— Zendaya (@Zendaya) June 16, 2014
Show how much she accomplished in only 22 years....she's beautiful inside and there will never be another Aaliyah, I just hope to share her— Zendaya (@Zendaya) June 16, 2014
I'm just a 17 year old girl who got cast to play one of her biggest inspirations #positive— Zendaya (@Zendaya) June 17, 2014
Shake It Up star also stunned the audiences at 2014 BET Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, June 29. She "wore a black crop top and azure blue and black jacket and maxi skirt with two braids and a cap."
Meanwhile, Karrueche Tran who is Chris Brown’s girlfriend has been falling over herself in an effort to vindicate her rights as a beautiful person with not just a ravishing face but a pure soul. She is facing a dilemma of sorts since being in front of the camera’s scrutiny is not enough for her.
The adult female model got a lot of coverage at the BET Awards 2014 for her photogenic looks and there were some genuine comments regarding her feminine pulchritude.
But that failed to elicit a positive remark from Karrueche. Since she was the hostess for the event, she had to make all the intros. But Karrueche simply botched the process up.
In fact, she did it so badly that it was a pathetic example of screwing up everything except her makeup. The BET Awards were a fairly critical show and when the audience saw this babe in the woods misreading her lines, they jumped at the opportunity to make fun of her mercilessly. She had to face a lot of flack for her social blunders.
