There has been a lot of drama lately since the cast of the Lifestyle film to remember the life of the young singer Aaliyah. With Zendaya on the starting role people’s comments just didn’t wait.. she was too white, or her personality didn’t fit the role… maybe this was just a publicity stunt for Zendaya to finally hit the lil’ pop princess hall along with her Disney friends… blah blah blah!
And after all this the actress decided to leave the role aside right before the BET Awards 2014 last Sunday, everyone was wondering why? Since she told online mag TMZ not too long ago that it was all cool, that she was going to do the role at her best because Aaliyah was an inspiration to her, so she wanted to honor her the best she could.
Everyone thought she was quitting because of the negative response from the public, well here’s what she had to say:
“I feel it was being rushed and I feel like production just wasn’t there. I have too much respect and love for Aaliyah as a person to do anything less than for her. If I’m going to do something, it has to be done 120 percent right. I love her and can’t wait to portray her another time when the time is right”
In this case, we have to agree with Zendaya, who would like to do something for someone with such impact in pop culture?? For what to look ridiculous! Way to go girl! We know she will find the way to make it properly, she seems very determined to make it.. we can tell for her BET outfit.. it was horrible.. but we know she was trying to channel that Black and Blue Aaliyah.
