*blank stare* *blinks* *repeats*
She does look like her when she has long hair
They might as well use Orlando Jones in drag.... At least he's an actor
Are they serious???
They just gon keep forcing this chick on people
That pic of Solange must either be a wax statue or from wayyyy back in the day. The Solange i know looks like that dude from milli vanilli
I guess the new trend is to get manly looking women to play the roles of deceased women who were actually pretty. First Lil Mama now this. SMH. I guess they'll find girly guys for the roles of strong men too.
Oh for the love of God..........
They just JACKED up the WHOLE movie.....Solange is not an actress....One project with Aaliyah's name on it that I will pass on...
Damn, ya'll are fucking cold. At least Solange looks like her and cold match her vocal range. Shit, keep your Beyonce hate from blinding you, please.
flop...Aaliyah was a sexy, lithe woman. i can just imagine Solange clomping and stomping around on stage. graceful this chick is not.
Oh hell no.
Solange favors Aaliyah ...In this pic . You guys are just Hatin on her . Solange can sing to .....She just will have too , have a great acting coach.
Hell no she better not play Aaliyah's role!!!!!!
Solo is beautiful to me. I think more pretty than Bey sometimes because she tend to look more natural. However, I am happy for my best friend Solo. She's my best friend in my head.
these folk with money in charge of stuff in the industry don't have a clue. somewhere in the quest for the bottom line: MAKE THAT MONEY, they can't see anything else that even remotely looks like it makes sense. I said it before: this world makes dollars and makes absolutely no sense . . . ugh. being force fed celebrities and so-called artists won't work for me. ugh. these people have marginal talent and have no business making decisions like they do. they are all bad. nahhh! nobody gonna be checking for solange as aaliyah. matter of fact, I don't want these celebrities doing anything for me except to go away and enjoy their riches and let the real talent come through.enough is enough. stop the world I wanna get off!
This just goes to show nothing's based on merit anymore. The casting of black roles in movies or biopics like this has become so stale because the selection process is always drawn from the same old, moribund pool of a select few black names already floating within the industry, regardless of their credentials as an actor. Solange is really only famous through association. The likes of Terrence Howard seems to always be the go-to man when ever a black male role needs to be filled even though he's a pretty weak actor.
as if think like a man was all that. thirsty will ride any wagon leaving. if you are honest, these movies and tv shows really are not that good. they just got a whole lotta so called celebrities in the mix and because they are so many, folk think there is quality there. I haven't seen that much quality coming from the black community in the way of entertainment these last 20 years . . . nothing epic or classic about the industry, which is why the industry keeps going back and remaking movies and covering songs.No great movies. No great songs. Just folk making a whole lotta money for a whole lotta nothing. and because we have never had it, we flock to it, which would give the appearance that it's all that, bur not so much.justkeepingitrealllll.
Would it be funny if this role ends up being a breakout for Solange?! Jamie Foxx RAY, Jennifer Hudson's Dreamgirls or Monique's Precious?! Like what if Solange actually does a great job and get mainstream acting recognition. Oscars, Golden Globes and shit LMAO Beyonce would die.
NNNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!I don't believe it and I really hope not.And to the people that say they look alike - cut it out, no they don't.And I like Solo, I think she's a beauty but no Aaliyah comparisons please.
I would say give her a chance before condemning that she can't act. Doing Aaliyah is going to be difficult as for anyone who tries to do Whitney. Never the less I hope she does go on to do well. You never know someone's true ability until you can see, hear and watch what they can do.
Why the hell couldn't they have gotten a lesser known actress to play Aaliyah? Somebody with talent that nobody really knows, even someone from the UK. Tired of hollywood putting these odd ass people in roles they are not meant for. Solange is known for 1 thing, being beyawnce's sister. THAT's IT! don't like her music at all and what acting roles has she done??? makes no sense.
Damn! Ya'll are all kind of negative. If you don't want to see Solo, don't watch the movie. Aint nobody forces ya'll negative a**es to watch anything. Solo gonna make her money with or without you!
Eww, horesface does not have the Angels swag for karoke let alone a biopic? Oh hellsnaw..
I knew Hollywood was gonna do this shit. I said it right after I heard the TLC biopic movie. Now they gonna fuck it up by putting Solange in Aaliyah's character? People will boycott this shit. Aaliyah's fans ain't gonna go for this shit. Casting Light-brights to play brown skin/dark skinned women SMH
In the next 4 years somebody gonna be playing the role of Beyonce's life People are running out of ideas (rolling my eyes)
I love Aaliyah!! I love the shit out of her, but I can't support this movie until I hear real people (not critics or experts) say it was a good movie and she did a good job. I don't know Solange to be an actress, so I can only assume she was chosen for this role because of her sister. Do any of you REALLY think she was selected because of her acting or singing talent?? Fuck the fact that she looks like her (which is BULLSHIT, BTW). Just because she's light-skinned with long hair, she favors Aaliyah??!! GTFOHWTS!!!!!Does she even have any work that we can look at to see how she is as an actress??This ain't doing shit but fucking up Aaliyah's memory and legacy. If this is true and Solange gets the part, I pray to God it's her shining moment and she does a good job. If she ruins this, she ruins herself so she better be damn sure she can pull it off.This Fuckery Shit!!!!
Aaliyah is so fine to me.....even with the lazy eye thing going on?? I miss that face, girl!!!I'd kill myself just to get to see that face again, but that would be some psycho stan shit. 100% 5150!!
can solange even act?
SOLANG AS AaLIYAH?THATS A DAM SHAME.
SOLANGE LOOKS LIKE A DUCK COMPARED TO AaLIYAH
I WON'T WATCH IT OR PAY TO SEE IT
HERE GO THE THIEVING ASS KNOWLES AGAIN!!!
12:18 Bitch shut up and stop posting. Get off of Bey and solo pussy. Solo is not all that beautiful. Aaliyah has a pretty remembered face. As for Solo she is getting this role because of her weave wearing pussy popping for a decade straight sister.TheFuckingEnd
REALLY!! Um, Aaliyah was not the best singer nor actress...give it a rest. You all are acting like that cuz she passed away. Solonge is going to do good in her role. I mean really!! Aaliyah was a good dancer at best.
Solo played head cheerleader in Bring it On...I don't know which one. Google it if you're interested. She may have done aome other projects too, but I can't remember.
@1:09Didn't nobody say Aaliyah was all that!!!! That still don't mean her fans want to see wack ass Solonge playing her in a movie!!!I wouldn't give a fuck if Aaliyah was still alive....I still wouldn't want Solonge playing her!!!While you're such a fan of Solonge...can you shed some light on what she's done to be deserving of this role over other true actors??
@1:13pmStraight to DVD movies don't count as far as acting credits go!!! Bring it On fell off after the one starring Kirsten Dunst. It starred Kirsten Dunst....not D-Wade's beard!!!
Solange is just not cool enough. We will have to wait and see though.....
Oh dear fucking God...NO! This is treason! Can we PLEASE just get rid of Beyonce and her sister? Damn!
What the hell happen to Keisha Chante? She had be given the role of Aaliyah years ago. She looks like Aaliyah clone and sings just like her. She even did an Aaliyah inspired photoshoot and nail it. I smell a rat and camel.
@ 1:18...u didn't have to come for Gabby tho...
I'm sure she will do well, she just might be a good actress.
@ 1:58Yeah that was low of me. I ain't sorry, but that was low. LOL
Oh hell no! Solange is a horrible choice if this rumor is true, and I doubt that it is. Aaliyah's family already said last year that there will be no biopic. They were on board before, but I think they don't want to touch the topic of Aaliyah having a sexual relationship with R. Kelly which is understandable. And secondly, Aaliyah's fans would not see this crap if it happens, because they shut Beyonce down when she wanted to remake One In A Million years ago, so they will definitely shut this shit down.@1:29PM I was thinking the same thing. Keisha Chante was already chosen to play Aaliyah before Aaliyah's family changed their minds. She was at the BET Awards making some announcement but I forgot what was about.
MOTHER OF 2 SAYS:@11:53 - I hope so! Solange works hard and doesnt try to live in her sister's shadow. She honestly tries to do her own thing...@12:42 - uhhhhhh Aaliyah wasnt that dark, Solange can pull that off@1:09 - I AGREE! I loved Aaliyah but she wasnt that great of a singer and she just started acting before her death...and finally maybe nobody wants the role...or the family approved of Solo taking the role...damn the negativity in here is lethal!
@ 1:29: Aaliyah's brother Rashad said Keshia Lied and that there will never be an Aaliyah Movie because no one could play his sister ever. He said this years ago. So a Hope for an Aaliyah Movie Vanished for me. I mean Aaliyah's Family can't stop a movie from being made but The original movie that would involve her Family and Missy and Tim is not going to happen.
This has got to be a joke! It is April Fools again already?
Lmao @ muthafuckas saying Keshia Chante lookS like Aaliyah. Ya'll tripping and letting the long hair she got fool ya'll. Lolita Price from YouTube is Aaliyah's Twin. Don't believe go on YouTube and look her up. She won ever Aaliyah Look a like contest and photo shoot spread depicting Aaliyah. She would Make Aaliyah's mother breakdown if she saw that girl.
the truth hurts. yes the comments are negative.the crap the entertainment industry is tryna sell us intelligent, thinking folk:NOW THATTT'S A NEGATIVE.I'm so glad I have great entertainment I grew up on I can go back to because there's nothing entertaining coming out of the industry these days.egos do not entertain me and that's all that permeates the industry on wax, on the runway, and in film: E G Oswhich is why they have to try so hard to drum up new ways to make money because there's marginal talent there, at best, but some huggggeeee ego.
WTF Is Solange playing? Aaliyah AFTER the plane crash? Not. Here. For. It. Lauren London looks similar to Aaliyah.
@2:23 tell it like it is! This garbage now is a disgrace! Take me back to the old school: Stephanie Mills, Jeffrey Osborne, Evelyn Champagne King,and other real singers! The only group I remember that got away with awful singing back in the day was Vanity 6 ! LOL!
All this Shit y'all talking but with no suggestions? Come on .... who y'all want to see play her?
Lauren London can't act! Have yall watched her on the game ?!?!?
@2:35 SOLANGE can't act either. Have you seen her on Bring It On? Chile...
Solange is a dead ringer to play a young Diana Ross in the Florance Ballard story. She looks just like Diana with those pop eyes and that small frame.
Solange will get this I bet and it will be because of Beyonce. I am tired of both. I wish they all go on a long vacation. Bey and Jay is highly over rated and paid and Solange no comments.
Will they let this broad rest in peace, dang. Her time has passed...
3:17 you a dumb bitch. Use correct terms. You tired ass whore.
@2:19, all that name calling is really uncalled for. I had never heard of lolita price until you said something. You don't have to be rude to other people to get your point across; however, I did google ms. price and she definitely is a dead ringer for Aaliyah. The point that I was making early is Solange has no business trying to play Aaliyah, but you know her family(j&b) will do anything(lie, cheat, steal, open the gates of hell) to serve their own ends. The devil is a lie.
The only problem I have with this is Solange is UGLY af compared to Aliyah. Body wise yes, Talent-wise maybe, but lookswise HELL NO.
3:55 PREACH GIRL!!!
"However, I am happy for my best friend Solo. She's my best friend in my head." 11:47 AM =================^^^^ This is THEE main reason why people hate STANS. Crazy MoFo, get some help!
This is some of Jayz's shit, was Aaliyah bi polar too?
No better time then to introduce fresh new talent to the world. Everyone else is stale, over exposed, and played out!
So,let me get this right. She's going to play a woman who used to get it in with her Sis's hubby? Will that be a part of bio-pic as well? Can this gal even act? Weird......she doesn't even resemble A one bit. Not wishing this shit good luck. Sounds like a disaster.
LOL@BeeGee @PKNY- ty, you brought back a really good experience when I saw Ray Charles perform way back when. Talk about true talent. Solange as Aaliyah? Straight to DVD.
KEISHA CHANTE is the perfect fit to play Aaliyah a phenom singer and has to "Aaliyah " look....and by look I mean poise and class just the right aura. Solange just doesn't do it the body frame is wrong (skin and bones, knobby knees) she is going to have to get one hell of weave and a bunch of makeup to pull it off and some serious voice traing to lose that twang in her accent
What happened to Keisha Chante? I thought she was one named to play Aaliyah?
Does Aaliyah NEED A MOVIE??????I liked her but I have ZERO interest in her life story. So what if she struggled to get a record deal, who the f*ck hasn't, that's damn near every artist story and I don't even think she struggled for a record deal. So what she slept with older industry men. Aaliyah's life does not need a movie, I'm not sure Biggie's life needed a movie either.The Five Heartbeats needed a movie because they went through some sh*t that gave valuable insight to the music industry, crackheads and racist cops, Tina Turner and Micheal Jackson were valuable insight. Did Prince or Eminem need a movie, I don't know but that sh*t was AWESOME. I feel like if it's a movie just for the purpose of profit off a celebs name then f*ck that. But if there's actually a story of struggle and perseverance and notable career achievement that inspires or uplifts the audience then tell that story. But if it's just a writer milking a celebs name for profit by making a movie based off not that deep or that serious sh*t that everybody already knows, then BYE. Make a 30 minute documentary and sit down.
Solo did a couple of movies. one with Cedrick, Steven Harvey, Vanessa Williams and Bow Wow, it was some real bullshit and she was in one of those Bring it on movies about cheerleaders, another crockk of shit. But never in a movie worth paying to see.
I kind of agree 7:42. no shade but why are they doing this again? I'll watch it if it's good tho
BIL's money and hands all over this!!! Disrespectful
Aaiyah is too special to be played by anyone especially by this bi foot heffaSolange is the bull to Aaliyah's unicorn
If you get this role don't blow it ....This is your opportunity to show ...you are a real actress ......Like Diana Ross ..'Lady Sings The Blues " Don't blow it......... Solange.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dj-lvnTsQS8LUV THIS SONG!
6:40 Dying fucking laughing
SOLANGE LOOKS LIKE AaLIYAH'S UGLY DUCKLING!!!!
@6:40PM YOU ARE RIGHT AALIYAH WAS IN A RELATIONSHIP WITH DAME DASHANDJAY ZBUT SHE CHOSE DAME OVER JAY ZTHE NEXT THING YOU KNOW WHILE RUSHING HOME ON A FLIGHT TO BE WITH DAMETHE PLANE CRASHES AND BURNSBEYONCE KNOWS VERY WELL THAT JAY Z LOVE AALIYAHAND THAT SHE WOULD NOT BE WHO SHE IS TODAY IFAALIYAH WHERE STILL ALIVESO NOW WE GET TO SEE THE STORY OF AALIYAH PLAYED BY BEYONCE'S SISTER SOLANGESO EVEN THOUGH THE STORY WILL BE ABOUT AALIYAH WE WILL STILL BE LOOKING AT BEYONCEWOW THE FAME WHORE HAS DONE IT AGAIN
Because of the conflict of interest Beyonce can't play Aaliyah and clearly there is no resemblance But I do think Beyonce is jealous of the memory of Aaliyah and the mark she left on Jay Z
Ain't gonna happen...just ain't. This is a bad rumor and if it does, I am sure it will be hell in the streets and it will be a major flop, unless it's a VH1 made for t.v. show, then I say ok. I thought Drake's ex-girlfriend Keisha Chante from Canada. She's the Canadian Pop Princess, who was the front runner up until last year, she looks like her, sings like her, dances like her and in fact, she model her sound and persona from Aaliyah since she was a little girl. It's only right that she has the role...PHUCK SOLANGE! http://hellobeautiful.com/tag/keshia-chante/I just can't today....If they give Solange this part, I will sick as hell!!!
Omfgoodness!! I never knew Jay and Aaliyah dated but I still realize the awkwardness about Bey when Aaliyah is mentioned and that time Bey was on the red carpet interviewing Aaliyah. I just thought Bey was shy at those times but now I guess I see.

Now my personal opinion, Solange looks more like Mya than Aaliyah in the picture with the hair. Many moons ago, I know they were in the works of asking Rosario D to play her. Thing is, no one needs to know how act more or less, you just need to sing or dance. What happened to Danielle Polanco as a choice?Usher had a slew of unknown Aaliyah look a-likes in his video, 'You don't have to call', and that chick in Friday 3 that came with Pinky to the rent party...so I know there are a lot of available women that can be up to grabs for it. it is what auditions are for....but to pick Solange goes to show you how far money can go. Does not mean it will buy her a believable or successful role. I am not hating either because I just so happened to like her.Hip Hop(e) Writer
IF this movie even gets made, it won't have any substance to it. They won't touch R Kelly relationship/marriage, and they are not going to talk about Aaliyah dumping Jay Z for Dame Dash.Like somebody said earlier, there is nothing really compelling about Aaliyah's life and career, outside of those two scandals. She wasn't some poor kid from the projects or homeless on the streets who made it big. Aaliyah was a middle class niece of a music producer who was groomed for an entertainment career.Now, if Jay Z is producing it, then you know it will make Dame look bad, and will have some sort of link to Beyonce. They'll have some ghostwriter create an original song and put Beyonce's name on it, or some bogus bullshit like that.And Solange cannot act. Aaliyah died young (at 22). Solange is too old to pull off playing a teenager.
@1:33LMAO I do not think shes too old because older people play younger roles all the time. To be real Solo just cannot act nor can her sister Beyonce.
They need to leave it alone... Rip baby girl
The movie "Death of a Dynasty" may have been a comedy but the story was real Dame Dash and Jay Z fell out over Aaliyah she was involved with both of them.If a story about Aaliyah's life is done it should tell it all. I think Aaliyah's story would be very interesting if it tells the truth. Her relationship/marriage to R Kelly at such a tender young age and etc Why do you think Jay Z was hating on R Kelly back in the day? He was having a jealous fit over R Kelly's past relationship with AaliyahAaliyah may have had innocent girl looks but she was a true Seductress but very slick and classy with it. Only a real actress can play AaliyahThe story gets deeper and deeper but if the truth is told Aaliyah's true story will make millions.AND HELL NO SOLANGE CAN'T PLAY AALIYAHHAS SOMEBODY LOST THEIR DAM MIND!!!!WHO THOUGHT OF THIS TWISTED SHIT?LET ME GUESS........
WOW! A bunch of no account anal mouths haten...... Who cashing in?????? SMH @ SAP
If she acts anything like her sister this is going to be a horrible movie. Why not find an actress that can act & be made to resemble Aaliyah. Solange should open a daycare center or something, I heard she likes kids.
Let's give her a shot and see if she pulls it off. I expect bullshit, but wouldn't mind being pleasantly surprised.
I completely forgot about Jay Z's beef with R Kelly! That was a mess. Jay Z trying to throw shade at R Kelly after he left the tour.Two pedos being scandalous!
Sacrilege! Solange will be horrible.
everybody sign petition if you want Lolita price Too play Aaliyah in the upcoming biopic of Aaliyah’s life https://www.change.org/petitions/lolita-price-pla....
