Zendaya Coleman Comments On Alexandra Shipp Joining Aaliyah Biopic

Zendaya Coleman Aaliyah Movie

“House Of Anubis” star Alexandra Shipp has just signed on for Lifetime’s “Aaliyah: Princess of R&B,” which Zendaya Coleman was originally set to star in. Here’s how Zendaya reacted to the news:

Let me just explain something. The reason why I chose not to do the Aaliyah movie had nothing to do with the haters or the people telling me I couldn’t do it, I wasn’t talented enough, or I wasn’t black enough. The main reasons were the production value wasn’t there, there were complications with the music rights, and I just felt like it wasn’t being handled delicately considering the situation. And I tried my best to reach out to the family on my own, and I wrote a letter, but I was unable to do so therefore I felt not morally OK with moving forward with the project. With all that being said, congratulations to the new woman playing Aaliyah. I only hope that she does not have to deal with half the hate I had to deal with. And remember that we are all human beings trying to do what we love to do. Let’s practice motivation and love, not discrimination and hate.
