All these years later, it is still hard to believe. She was so young with almost her entire life ahead of her.

RIP Aaliyah, I can't believe it's been 16 years.

When I found out what R. Kelly had done, I stopped listening to his music. I miss this girl's presence in the world. Such a short life. She knew how to be sexy without be raunchy. She seemed like a genuinely nice person.

Loads of talent.

I have always respected this beautiful young lady who had so much to look forward to. She was wonderful in Romeo Must Die and Queen of the Damned..the dance of Akasha was so smooth. At you best was one of my absolute favorites. Nothing but love for Babygirl. Always remembered.

i wonder what type of woman aaliyah would be today. i think social media has messed up the way i've seen celebs i've really liked. either you find out they dumb, anti black people, arrogant, or all of the above. lol. rest in peace. her death is tragic because she died so young and in such a horrific way.

Isn't this the young girl (15) that was married to that pedophile Kelley?

Where were her parents?

Just an observation said...

Miss you, baby girl!!!

She was brought up cuz she don't take competition well not even with a spirit. Eeeerbody knows SHE was that b*tch!

I love Aaliyah. She was very talented, unique and very pretty. I love her dark, grungy, punk rock-meets-B Girl style. But her fans are too obsessed with her and too invested in her death like the Jon Benet Ramsey story.

Just an observation said...

2:43
(Sigh) Her mother and Uncle didn't know what pedophile Kelly was doing. When they found out they quickly got the marriage annulled and got him away from her. How old are you? Look it up. It's widely known....

@2:36, she would be doing the same shit everyone is doing maybe, she was mediocre singer, and had a smooth dancing style. Her death, which was a tragic during the peak of her career is what made her bigger than life. As stated she was on the same singing level, with TLC

@2:43 Didn't know what he was doing? What?? Why was she with him?

What do you when you are married or not - come on now!

@4:46

Are you dumb? He was producing her album. R Kelly was one of the hottest r&b producers out at that point. Having him as a producer would've been a steal for any brand new artist.

Thanks for this! I love her.

Yep Brandy hated her and with goid reason. She was beautiful, could sing, could dance, could be sexy and be one of the boys. I dont even wear make up but may get one of those MAC kits just because of her.

Ms my mother cant get cheated on but I can was envious as well that is why she was brought up.

Didn't she pay fake tribute last year and posted a pic of her and Aaliyah and Kelly and cropped Kelly out and lightened her own skin to make Aaliyah seem darker?

And now Brandy dumb home schooled ass just hates Fake Preggers and Monica ole holier than thou ass.

She loves Kim though!

@ 4:24pm Lol you're just mad a dead woman get more love from strangers than you ever would with your own family. Fuck outta here with that mediocre shit. Aaliyah was everything and more. Even in Death.

Allihave2say said...

I agree with @4:42pm she was very mediocre. She had the same whispering voice as Janet. Definitely not a strong vocalist. She was a light skinned, long haired pretty girl. She became infamous in death because she was young and pitied, as well as seen as a victim of R Kelly.

I always find her parents protectiveness in death interesting because I can't figure out what they were doing when she ran of with R Kelly and got married.

^^^ do you know how many kids have been done dirty in the business?

See Amanda Bynes, Britney Spears, Kriss Kross, Corey Heim and Feldman, B2K, Michael Jackson, Maculey Caulkin and the list goes on.

Don't worry about her parents because as soon as they found out that shit was put to a hault.

She started fucking with Timbaland, Missy, and Ginuwine as well as starring in Romeo must die, Queen of the damned, and was supposedto be hella better then Jada in all the Matrix's.
You can keep all that whisper singer shit because YOU know that girl could blow, act and dance.

She would be on a many of magazine covers and have shoe lines and had been a judge on all these the voice, american idol, america's got talent if she was still here.

Goin now with that bullshit. She sang with only instrumentals behind her and you didnt here nary a whisper.

What parallel universe are we living in where Aaliyah could act?
Aaliyah was on the cusp of superstardom right before her death, unfortunately she didn't live long enough to get there. Who knows where her career would have gone had she'd lived.
Her family has always been shady with her uncle Barry leading the way. I loved Aaliyah as much as the next person and her death broke my heart but people deify her as the would be savior of music and it's bs. Back in '01 Whitney, Mariah, Beyonce, Janet and AKeys were all ahead of Aaliyah in terms of popularity and talent.
She was a beautiful and talented singer/dancer who seemed to have a good spirit and died far too soon. That's it.
May she R.I.P

Anonymous said...

All those broads where ahead due to them starting before her. She was what 14/15?

Pump your breaks boo! She would have been in every hit movie and had the most collabes.

Probably would have kept dmx clean or Chris Brown on the right road.

Don't play with it.

Y'all low income thot hoes better put some Respect on Aaliyah's memory. That girl ain't never been mediocre. Mediocre celebs don't get tributes 16 years after their death. Michael Jackson and Whitney been dead for years and they don't even get no tributes or remembrance this day and age. Aaliyah was in her own lane and was humble until death. She touched lives of everyone she met. Her death ain't make her famous or overhyped. She been that way. Rappers and Singers still remixing her songs till this day. That girl was known for 7 years and accomplished a lot of shit. Movies, commercials, awards, custom made dolls, albums, Even in Death she is still remembered. Got a new make up line and possibly clothing line. Mediocre these nuts. Fuck outta here.

Just because she died young doesn't make her all these exaggerated idolizing things.
She had a thin and weak voice that she could barely just get through the song with, without any challenging vocals.
She couldn't act and queen of the damned is known as a horrible film. It was a flop.
And she was a shady person who was screwing her way to the top at that young age, so just a hustler. She was on how many industry men? I don't see the class nor the beauty btw. She looks plain and for all you know she would have become raunchy and be twerking now.
And if she lived she would just be another celebrity that y'all would be gossiping and spilling the tea about.

Please don't mention Beyonce the Talentless Piece of Tranny Trash in a post about a legend.

That is all.

^^^^pot meet kettle. Didn't you just do that?

That is all!

A movie that she couldnt complete because she DIED was trash and a flop yea okay.

Screwing her way to the top? Who has/had more celebrity bodies her or alien eyed extension wearing STILL lying to this day Ray J sister? Also being in a RELATIONSHIP and sexually active makes you shady?

I wont even defend her voice, since you have probably never been in a studio.

You sound jealous of a genuine person who didnt go out of her way to be beautiful, she just was. No fake hair no fake nails no fake eyelashes no fake breasts no fake ass. Tiny little thang that exuded sexy and kept all eyes on her.

The day she died the world stood still. EVERYBODY remembers where they were and what they were doing when they stopped EVERYTHING on the radio to announce it. People stopped what they were doing and called other people. People who never met her cried. That is love.

Her mother sent her off with the class she raised her beautiful daughter with. The horse drawn carriage, the white casket, the peaceful doves.

I get that people say and do fucked up shit for attention. But just saying stupid shit because this young woman was so loved and you are insecure because of whatever is not cool sis.

STOP SPEAKING ILL OF DEAD, HER FAMILY DOESNT NEED TO SEE YOUR BITTERNESS.

@ 9:15am Lol stop hating on a dead woman. You can't name 5 niggas she slept with to made it to the top. Not one. And don't pull that she was fucking Dame and Jay. Aaliyah was private. You bitches can't even spill tea on her. Just gossip from Google. Sit down. You are a nobody

Anonymous said...

For the last 10 years people have had this mean-spirited disrespectful aura with evil intentions. I believe Aaliyah was an angel. He wouldn't of let her be here when wrong is right and right is wrong. The devil is a lie and people are waking up to it more and more each day.

Anonymous said...

Not shady at all to almost marry an industry pedo at 15,16 years old.
Dying young is the best thing that happened to her career.

Anonymous said...

^^And when you die it'll be the best thing to happen to your family with your non irrelevant ass. Shut the fuck up and respect the dead.

Anonymous said...

^^^ Thank you I wasn't gonna respond to "it" because obviously "it" is starved for attention and severely parched.

On a Aaliyah tribute thread talking about how irrelevant she was smh.

Allihave2say said...

The delusions in here are very real. Now she's an angel, a saint and would have been in everything...lol.
You people are fully of idolatry. This woman has been used to sell records and make money period. She has been idolized and lifted as a marketing tool to sell more music based off sympathy and pity that she dies young. No more or less.

All this yap about Alliyah being so private yet folks are able to name several men she dated. Giggles...I'm glad she hasn't been forgotten but it seems the truth has.

Anonymous said...

Private she was. It was hard to tell who she was fucking when and where. She wasn't leaking shit and having paps follow her.

Being able to list men she dated isn't normal? Was she not allowed to date? Was she an alleged lesbian? Dating is wrong? Makes you a horrible person? Deserves death?

Of you want to talk about a person being USED to sell records, make money, be idolized, used as a marketing tool see your fave.

Aaliyah was doing shit before it got done. Speaking ill of the dead may make you feel better about yourself but in all actuality sounds like you wish you wers dead.

Allihave2say said...

@10:41 LOL LOL LOL Speaking ill of the dead sounds like I wish I was dead? Really? LOL. No it makes me have an opinion on her life. Who is my fave since you know me so well? Go ahead, I'll wait....
