Wasn't Missy " Beaver Hunter" Elliott and Timbaland on the radio saying no one talked to them or the family about a script for a movie?! I would think those are the people that knew her best, unless R-Kelly was a consultant (extreme sarcasm)
It could work if they are mainly focusing on her early years, but this is rather suspicious timing considering that only her brother is left alive ( her father and mother passed back to back a few years ago); however, I think they should make Zendaya lip-sync her songs like how Angela Bassett did in the Tina Turner movie and J-Lo in Selena. Having Zendaya re-record her music is not right and I just dont see Zendaya being able to match her tone.
the continued erasure of black women..the best way to say F you, is to not watch at all.
Aaliyah mom is still alive. Zendaya is a bad choice. They basically just picked selena gomez.
8:12Thanks didn't know her parents had passed. She is a cute girl and with the right attitude and coaching she can pull it off.
From time to time I wonder what her career would have been by now, had she lived.
And I am still asking "why is anybody doing a biopic"? She was cute girl who made a few decent songs but she was no great talent. Awful acting and what seems to be little to no personality. The most interesting part of the movie will be the plane crash and her stint as Mrs. R. Kelly. Snoozer!!!
@8:18 &8:19, this is 8:12, my apologies her mother is gravely ill. She has not passed yet, her father died in 2012.
So her brother trying tob get paid them
ENOUGH ALREADY WITH THIS SHIT!Who keeps leaking these damn stories about "Who Will Play Aaliyah". How about not making a biopic at all. I swear, it's like Hollywood waits for pop stars to die because they know they are worth more dead!
Why? She's not even black.
Hollyweird casting couch and mansion parties canidate wins again smh. They always get the "Disney" ones
They couldn't find a black girl to play the part. I will not be watching. smdh.
I agree...pretty young lady but she seemed to lack personality. Totally boring. Where was her spunk? She never really connected with the fans or the public. ,
Even the deceased are disrespected. If YOU thought Aaliyah was boring, untalented, etc., fine, but not everyone feels that way. Honestly, if that's how you feel about her, why are you even on this post with your negativity? Niggas are the originators of hating, envy, jealousy, and malice.
@Ms Lee yep Zendaya is mixed but you know how some unmixed folks feel. She's Black but only when it's convenient according to the unmixed Black people. lol
I am scratching my head that Aaliyah….no disrespect…would even get a BIOPIC. Don't you need to live a little before you get that kind of treatment? Aaliyah tragically died at 22 but BIOPIC material is a considerably REACHING. But since the wheels are already spinning on this will they include how Aaliyah was fucking R. Kelly and gave it to him so good he married her at 15? Are they gonna include her love affair with Dame Dash and purportedly Jay-Z? This is about profit and nothing else. I'm not mad at Zendaya…I think she'll do great but folks need to stop acting like Aaliyah was the Chaka Khan of her generation...
No. What's next? Jennifer Lawrence as Esther Rolle? FOH
No thanks! I'll pass on this. Zendaya, is a Disney star, plus she was second on "Dancing with the Stars", so I guess they want to strike the iron while its hot by selecting her. To get her fans to watch this biopic. Keshia Chante must be weeping somewhere.
Aaliyah was EXTREMELY pretty and that's probably why you jealous hoes are still hating on her. AND her hair was REAL. Yeah, no wonder you hoes are talking about 'she wasn't worthy of a biopic.' Sit down.
@9:47, Keshia Chante is somewhere eating a lot of crow.
Aaliyah only rocked her real hair during her debut era. Every other era she had pieces or extensions.
All these people saying Zendaya isn't black ... Her dad is African. How much blacker can you get?
Aaliyah's hair was long when she was 3 years old. Enough with the hating. You bitches need to be dropped off on a remote island. Her hair was longer than yours regardless.
@8:29 at 15 she sold 3 millin copies and second album sold 8 millon, total she has sold 52 millon and billboard named her the 10th most successful female r&b artist of the past 25 years and she did most of this b4 22. Thats probaly why, but nice way to throw shade at the deceased!!
Yeah Zendaya is black but I think they should just let her lipsync to Aaliyah's music. Zendaya loves hip hip. I watched her on DWTS and they playe her song Replay in the opening on the view almost everyday.
@9:28amWhat you call un-mixed black people is incorrect. Most blacks today are ''mixed" due to the raping of slave women generations back and mixing with native American tribes. Pure blood blacks in this country is a myth. What blacks you describe as unmixed black people are people who IDENTIFY as black and a lot of that was due to Black Pride which use to be strong and positive. Sadly a lot of today's young blacks are lost because of the chains on their minds. That INCLUDES a lot of your so-called "mixed" blacks.
telling the truth = hating?? OK.....
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A MIXED BLACKNIGGA YOU ARE BLACK THE DOMINANT GENE RULES...........................................................
10:39, Most Black people don't look mixed, nor are their hair textures evident of an obvious mixture. I'm talking about unmixed Black people with two Black (unmixed) parents. I don't care if your great, great, great grandparents were Native American or mixed with French or whatever else Black people claim. I'm talking about a Whoop Goldberg, Sheryl Lee Ralph, and Tasha Smith unmixed person versus an Alicia Keys, Halle Berry, and Tracee Ellis Ross mixed person. There are very obvious differences among these 6 "Black" women.
Plenty of people have long hair as a child and dont when they are older. Her hair was not 100% all the time. she wore extensions. i honestly thought everyone knew that.
if u are black and your Dad has/had facial hair u are mixed with something....
at 15 she sold 3 millin copies and second album sold 8 millon, total she has sold 52 millon and billboard named her the 10th most successful female r&b artist of the past 25 years and she did most of this b4 22. receipts? [crickets]
Amen @ 9:28. Excellent point.
Most Black people don't look mixed, nor are their hair textures evident of an obvious mixture.----Truth!!
As a die hard Aaliyah fan1) I do not want this movie to happen and2) Do not think she is the BEST for the role. Like someone above said, not watching it is how you voice your opinion.
I dont care about Zinfandel being mixed. She looks NOTHING like Aaliyah......not even a little bit. Thats the problem. Keshia Chante is mixed and almost everybody wanted her to play AAliyah.
My Dad is Mexican. My Mom is Black. Therefore I'm legitimately mixed. I'm half and half. Blaxican. Mexiblack. Whatever.
IF YOU KEEP ADDING MILK TO THE COFFEE IT WILL WHITEN LIGHTEN THE BLACK OUT BUT YOU WILL NEVER GET RID OF THE GRAINS THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A TRACETHIS IS WHY ALL WOMEN AND MEN HAVE NAPPY PUBIC HAIR NO MATTER WHAT RACE YOU ARE
Zendaya will play Aaliyah whether YOU like it or not. Since when does looks have to do with portraying someone? JLo didn't look like Selena. Angela Bassett didn't look like Katherine Jackson, Tina Turner, OR Coretta Scott King. Yaya Dacosta doesn't look like Whitney Houston. See how that works?
Not all people have 'nappy' pubic hair. The fuck? You niggas are so uneducated.
@10:45 oh you want receipts? So u think i was just talking out of my ass? Theres this new site online alot of ppl have them its called a wikipeda page. It has all the info about ppl, and all the info i typed is on there. Check it out! PS. a simple google search should be done b4 asking for receipts. JS
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^DUMB NIGGA GENES DON'T SPLIT UP YOU ARE ONE ARE THE OTHER AND THE DOMINANT GENES RULESIF YOU WHERE WHITE AND MEXICAN YOU WOULD BE MEXICAN
Not a good choice. She has no personality!!!
its a lot of hateriaction holleration in this dacery i see
Why do Black people think that the entire world wants to be them? Like I said, I'm not ALL Black. My father is Mexican and I'm not about to OMIT my Mexican side just to satisfy Black people. I speak Spanish, have a Mexican name, was born in Mexico, etc. I also speak English, have an African middle name, was raised in Los Angeles, and minored in African American studies in college. Stop trying to bully mixed people into choosing to only be Black.
@1056Wikipedia is hardly reliable. Most adults know that. If you are up here stating "facts" then you should have reliable sources and links hon.
@Nasir, yes. They're hating, but this is what Black people are most known for and now they're hating on Zendaya and Aaliyah.
If you're not at least 50% of some other race other than Black, you're not truly 'mixed' in my opinion.
This role could possibly ruin her "career". The family hasnt given the OK and they are not involved in the project whatsoever. She could be blackballed. Lindsay ruined the Liz Taylor biopic and she hasnt worked since.
YOUR STILL A DUMB AZZZZZZZZZZZZZTHE ORIGINAL MAN AND WOMEN GOD ALMIGHTY FIRST CREATION OF MAN WAS BLACKIT DON'T MATTER WHO YOU WANT TO BE ITS WHO YOU ARE WHETHER YOU LIKE OR NOTALL RACES ORIGINATED FROM BLACK PEOPLEIN THE BEGINNING THERE WAS DARKNESSBUT DON'T WORRY BLACK FOLKS AIN'T CHECKING FOR YOU ANYWAY NIGGABUT YOU WILL BE TOLD THE TRUTHNOW GO SUCK WHITE SHITYOU AND THAT PHONY TRICKPLAYING AALIYAH
@ 11:00am. CoSign. So true! Black folk are always trying to Bully mixed races to embrace and accept themselves as black. Both cultures of backgrounds exist and both are equally acknowledged.
@11:03So if I dont agree with you I am a hater?? DELUSION.
@11:02 ok so try billboard.com, or just google how many records has Aaliyah sold? Is there a reason ppl want to discredit the success of one of our fallen sisters?
@11:02 ok so try billboard.com, or just google how many records has Aaliyah sold? Is there a reason ppl want to discredit the success of one of our fallen sisters? Its not about discrediting her. You are stating facts correct?? Therefore you should be able to provide the specific location [links] you received these "facts". So again where are your receipts??
ZENDAYA COULD PLAY AALIYAH'S DOG IN A PET SHOWSHE'S NOT THE RIGHT ONE TO PLAY QUEEN AALIYAHAND THIS TRICK IS TRYING TO SING HER SONGSTO ENABLE HER SORRY CAREERBULL CRAP!!!!
THE BLACK OLMEC S OF MEXICO"IN THE BEGINNING THERE WAS DARKNESS"
To the first 11:08Thank you and I agree. I'm mixed and I will never, ever only claim Black. In fact, I'm only a quarter Black anyways. I get tired of that mess, that one drop rule that Black people still fall for. Lol. White people made that rule up to keep the White race pure. The one drop rule is discriminatory and very ignorant, yet Black people still embrace it. I'm not surprised though. Black folks really embrace a lot of socially and culturally destructive things!
Zendaya looks white, Hispanic, mixed. Aliyah is black, Negro, African American. How is Zendaya a good fit for this role?
"Niggas are the originators of hating, envy, jealousy, and malice. 9:21 AM "Black folks invented hate, envy and malice?And I guess when white Europeans decided to colonize the Americas and Africa, they danced around the Maypoles with the Native Americans and Africans and brought gifts? I guess American slavery never existed and they brought millions of Africans overseas because they were giving then a luxury cruise to the Americas for a life of milk and honey...Better yet, in the Bible, Judas never betrayed Jesus and Judas was the best man in Jesus's wedding? Satan was never kicked out of Heaven but was promoted to Earth because God thought he was so amazing? SMH...
i didn't know kesha was mixed too. damn. well she still looked more ethnic/closer to Aaliyah and she captured aaliyah's alure from the photos i saw. this little girl looks like a bag of bones and too goofy to play ms. Aaliyah. rip. also so sad about her family! i hope the brother has good support.
To the first 11:33, I was SPECIFICALLY talking about Black people. Of course you deflected and mentioned White people because your mind is programmed to operate as a victim on a daily basis. Also, since you're so well-versed in history [sarcasm], why don't you read about Africans selling African slaves to Europeans in exchange for goods during the Atlantic Slave Trade.
" @Ms Lee yep Zendaya is mixed but you know how some unmixed folks feel. She's Black but only when it's convenient according to the unmixed Black people. lol 9:28 AM "STFU!
Why everyone tripping on race. Tony Montana was played by an Italian. Same with Carlito's way. Get over it!!
11:36I already know about Africans selling Africans laves to Europeans!Do you realize how asinine you comment sounds? We are the originators of hate and jealousy? So I guess all of those years of white people lynching Black folks and throwing us out of "White Only" establishments was them expressing their undying love to us?But continue to eat them stale bread crumbs whitey is throwing down at you. Yessuh, massah, feed muh mo'!
@11:43Because these niggas ain't got nothing else better to think about. But I bet ALL THEY ASSES FORGOT TO PAY THEIR LIGHT BILL TODAY!
Y'all are wild in this thread. How did this become about race baiting though?
Damn, there niggas like @11:43 blaming "whitey" again. I swear niggas will NEVER, EVER, FORNEVER EVER, take responsibility for their own actions.EVER!
How did this become about race baiting though? 11:49 AM Because niggas stay playing #Victim to "evil yt" and how they did "us" wrong......hundreds and hundreds of years ago.
LOL@ the militant niggas who always want to claim the good in humanity but NEVER claim the bad (e.g, hating, envy, jealousy, and malice as 9:21AM so perfectly put it). Niggas. SMH....
Sorry...err record songs???? I know they are not going to replace that voice with this bitch's voice?????URGH!
I love these comments! CO-SIGN 11:51, 11:53, AND 11:55.
And one other thing, why are people saying that this Zandaya person won't do her justice? Think about it... Zandaya is pretty, so was Aaliiyah. If Zandaya can pull of not being able to sing or act and put some hair over her eye, then she will nail it.
forget about the race issue. this zendaya chick does not have the sex appeal that aaliyah had. aaliyah was so smooth about it and not everyone can duplicate that. additionally, aaliyah was a natural beauty. have you seen the zendaya chick without the hair and makeup?
FLOPliyah1 #1 song in US1 #1 AlbumFLOPshe has sold 8.4 million albums in the United States and over 32 million albums worldwideLIES!!! only 10 mill
Leave it to the ignorant people to turn this into a racial debate. The girl is black and white who cares. Anyways. I watched her in some interviews and dance videos and I think she could possibly do this role justice. She obviously has to lose the Disney flow and step her sexy, mellow vibe up a lot. But regardless of the casing I just hope they maintain the respect for baby girl. Seeing as her father is dead and her mom and brother have been shutting down projects with aaliyah's name on it for years, I'm sure they had nothing to do with it. If this is not done in a tasteful manner I smell law suits.
Y'all are way too caught up in this casing. Granted we want someone to resemble Aaliyah but we all know she was truly one in a million. It didn't matter who they picked they was going to be backlash. Aaliyah was more than a pretty face and for all of you asking why she's relevant enough to have a biopic, without her a lot of r&b artist wouldn't have the style they have today. Her sexiness was natural, she didn't try hard she just vibed and did her own thing.
All you proudly "mixed-with-what-the-fuck-ever" blacks, that won't ever, EVER, claim to be "just black" (eeww, just black) can stay your "mixed-with-what-the-fuck-ever-black asses with whichever other race or nationality you are desparately clinging to to be LESS black. We proudly black, proudly IDENTIFYING blacks don't need your "less black struggle" with us,mucking up the works. The race or nationality you are struggling to cling to, to be "less black" STILL sees, regards you as black whether you like it or not, but please stay your asses on over there with them.
1:53pm continued(eeww, just black)
I'm talking about a Whoop Goldberg, Sheryl Lee Ralph, and Tasha Smith unmixed person versus an Alicia Keys, Halle Berry, and Tracee Ellis Ross mixed person. There are very obvious differences among these 6 "Black" women.10:44 AMLook at this ignorance right here. "Mixed" is just that, meaning two or more substances joined together. Alicia, Halle and Tracee are all BIRACIAL as well as being mixed. Biracial implies exactly two races coming together. That's why they all appear equally European and black. Whoopi, Sheryl and Tasha may or may not be mixed but none are biracial so they wont have a biracial appearance.
Why do some of yall have a problem with Aaliyah getting a LIFETIME biopic? Does it really bother you? lol Lifetime has had biopics on Fantasia, Anna Nicole Smith, and Jodi Arias. Yall got a fuckin problem with a once POPULAR musical artist getting a movie? SMH@11:06 LIES. Nobody gave a fuck about that Liz Taylor biopic. Lindsay hasn't had a real job in over a decade. You can't "blackball" someone who doesn't work as is.@1:33 Betes you aint fooling nobody. You just pressed nobody's rushing to do a Beyaki film.
SNITCH!!!! YOU BITCH!!!!!!!Why do you keep deleting my post? You know damn well my post said : (eeww, just black [sarcasm])You are changing the tenor of my comment by not posting it like I wrote it to make my point!Other posters must be right about you! Who's agenda are you serving?You'll probably delete this post too. Or change it.Bitch! I'm keeping a sharp eye on you now!
Nasir is A FOOL!!! "Hateration in this dancery" LMAO
2:34, Quit playing. You're not "proudly" Black. You're Black because you can't pass as an obvious mixture of multiple races. You're Black because you DON'T look racially ambiguous. The only thing you will ever be is Black. You sound hyper-emotional and quite aggressive. If mixed people are seen as Black by everyone else [again, you're brainwashed by the one drop rule, thus your idiotic reasoning for saying that mixed people are seen as Black by the masses...], what the hell is your ONLY-BLACK ass seen as? A slave? A darkie? A degenerate? A charcoal?
@9:33 AM Biopics were made on singers who died young: Buddy Holly, Richie Valence, Billy Stewart et al. Personally, I don't think Aliyah was that great of a singer. She was mediocre at best. She's not what I would call an iconic singer. No shade. No disrespect. Just my opinion.
@10:01 AM In 'your' opinion, Aliyah was 'extremely' beautiful (and that's fine), and she had a weave mixed in with her real hair. IMO, she was pretty, had a mediocre voice and was a mediocre talent. No shade. No disrespect. No Jealousy. Just my opinion.
@3:37 @3:45She was a ICON whether you think so or not. Which is why she's getting a biopic. NEXT!
LOL Black folks lose again. Getting this half breed to play a black woman SMH. Hollywood stay shitting on Black folks. No surprise they keep putting out movies about a white Jesus and Israelites when they were black as this got damn mole on my arm.Watch they get Justin Bieber to play R Kelly and you won't believe who they got playing Missy Elliott haha
Anonymous said... Hollyweird casting couch and mansion parties canidate wins again smh. They always get the "Disney" ones 8:51 AM ------------------------------ I was just about to come for somebody's neck until I read your comment. Thanks for reminding me how Hollyweird operates. So true about Disney.
Just because aaliyah chose to put education first and before over-saturating the market doesn't mean that she didn't have a connection with her fans. With each album she dropped she would take a long break but in between those breaks she would drop a song or two for a sound-track. To add to that, there is simply no denying that aaliyah was well on her way to bigger stardom, she had A+ MOVIES lined up and was going to gain more endorsement deals but unfortunately her life was cut short in the midst of it all. Hollywood would not waste their time doing a biopic on aaliyah if they felt they couldn't tell a story regarding her life. END OF STORY!
LIES. Nobody gave a fuck about that Liz Taylor biopic. Lindsay hasn't had a real job in over a decade. You can't "blackball" someone who doesn't work as is.herbie fully loadedjust my luckbobbygeorgia rulei know who killed meso if those arent "real" jobs when all of those films were theatrically released what does that say about zendaya's career and this project?? nobody cared about liz taylor's biopic so what makes u think they will care about aaliyah's??? one is a known legend and the other is NOT!
@5:14 All those movies with the EXCEPTION of Herbie were FLOPS lmao DEAD at you really trying to make Lindsay Lohan a viable commodity in Hollywood lol her reality show on OWN was a HUGE flop as well and got cancelled before the finale. She's basically a joke in Hollywood so nobody took the Liz Taylor biopic seriously. If someone ELSE would have played her then people would have watched. Aaliyah was a ICON get over it.
BOO!!!!A biopic FOR WHAT!!?????
Lmao @ Nasir.......hateration and holleration in this dancery.....LOL... I AGREE!
Who.Is.She??? But hey, if she gives a good depiction, then there should be no hate/shade thrown. Hopefully, she can fall into the role easily. Still never heard of her....and I have kids...that watch Disney...smh
who cares, I will not be watching it !!! HOLLYWOOD HAVE NO RESPECT NOR WANT BLACK WOMAN APART OF IT !!! You have to be a hoe with no morals, ethics, materialistic and not a Christian to be in that demonic place, sista's!!! BURN HOLLYWOOD BURN!!!
@3:03pmStay your part black self hating ass over there with the race you claim. I AM proudly black. I identify myself as black, and am proud everybody see me as black. Proud my mother and father are black and loved each other. Proud of my Creek and Cherokee heritage but my WHOLE life has been lived as a Black, African American, and that is a blessing. Even our president who is bi-racial, half black and half white, IDENTIFIES himself proudly as a Black man and chose a Black woman to make his wife and this nations First Lady with their proud Black children. Even your self hating "less black" ass has someone in your linage that was black but you would rather claim the side which is not black and that's your perogative.Stay your less black, more than black, ANYTHING BUT BLACK ass over there with your NOT BLACK side of the family and don't worry about us Proud to be identified as Black, black people. We will be just fine with you being OVER THERE.
@rnbthugYea thats why they will probably come out with their own version after this. But i dont think aaliyahs story has been finished yet i think she still has some music left to be heard...
RWS is owned by ASIANS can't you tell it is not black owned. This why they let racist comments about black women stay up and deleted some other comments.
Zendaya looks white, Hispanic, mixed. Aliyah is black, Negro, African American. How is Zendaya a good fit for this role?11:30 AM ^^^^^THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Hollyweird casting couch and mansion parties canidate wins again smh. They always get the "Disney" ones8:51 AM ^^^^^THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! forget about the race issue. this zendaya chick does not have the sex appeal that aaliyah had. aaliyah was so smooth about it and not everyone can duplicate that. additionally, aaliyah was a natural beauty. have you seen the zendaya chick without the hair and makeup?1:11 PM ^^^^^AND THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
aaliyah was mixed.....and so is zendaya.....aaliyah had fuller lips. you would think that people these days would worry more about they're future, or in this topic, whether or not she can pull of the role rather than a mixed girl playing a mixed girl......
If they were gonna do any type of casting LOLITA PRICE should have been their very first choice
@4:19 PM This is 3:37/3:45 Record sales and Grammy awards doesn't necessarily make her a great singer or an icon. Case in point Justin Beiber. IMO, Beiber and Aliyah are mediocre singers at best, but they will go down as icons based solely on record sales and Grammy awards. Very misleading. Again, no shade, no jealousy, no disrespect. Just my opinion, which I'm entitled to just like you.
@9:29 PM Stop eating their Kung Pao Chicken and find another blog.
aaliyah was mixed.....and so is zendaya.....aaliyah had fuller lips. you would think that people these days would worry more about they're future, or in this topic, whether or not she can pull of the role rather than a mixed girl playing a mixed girl...... How was Aaliyah mixed?? Both parents are Black. I have heard her grandmother was White but I still don't see how that makes her mixed. Do you consider Sasha and Malia mixed?? And it's "their" not "they're". Maybe you should worry about your future in an English course..
@548 are you stupid?? how am i trying to make her a viable commodity?? i was responding to a commenter who said she hasnt had a real job in over a decade. dont get mad at me for fact checking you dumbasses. lindsay is a joke now but at least she had her films released in theatres at one point. what the fck has zendaya done??
👎On Zendaya..she doesn't possess the sensuality that aliyah naturally had or the grace in her dance..no way!..@whoever said all the gotta do is pull her hair over one eye..you got me laughing this evening for real
@12:34 Your ass is talking in circles. You just said Aaliyah will go down as a icon.....END OF DISCUSSION.@12:50 If Aaliyah has a white grandparent, then YES THAT MAKES HER MIXED. Sasha and Malia are MIXED as well regardless of their appearance.@12:59 You don't have to be a STAR to do a biopic, that's the point you are MISSING shitface.
aaliyah was mixed.....and so is zendaya.....aaliyah had fuller lips. you would think that people these days would worry more about they're future, or in this topic, whether or not she can pull of the role rather than a mixed girl playing a mixed girl......

And it's "their" not "they're". Maybe you should worry about your future in an English course..^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^Aaliyah is black and Indian :) and before you get so caught up in my proper use of their and they're (you understood what I was saying though right?) which was clearly a mistake, you should double check YOUR logic to make sure YOU’RE making sense. If you believe Aaliyah's grandmother was white, how the hell does that make both parents black? Are you using the 1 drop rule? If so, then Zendaya is black as well, according to you, seeing as though her father is black, further confirming my initial point that they are both the same (either black and black or mixed and mixed) and people should be more concerned whether or not she can pull off Aaliyah’s style and vibe. Thank you.
They should use tinashe
Zendaya already dropped out of the running
