Rumors of an Aaliyah movie have been swirling around for years. According to NecoleBitchie, it looks like it may come to fruition in the form of a VH1 produced biopic rumored to air on the anniversary of Aaliyah’s death, August 25th. When thinking about the production of a movie based on the life of the late singer, there are so many questions that come to mind. Will they talk about the R. Kelly situation? Will they include the Jay Z/Dame Dash saga? Will Timbaland and Missy be involved in the music aspect? Will they tell the FULL story? But the biggest and most important question for me is who can actually pull off playing the role of smooth but sassy, beautiful and ever so cool Aaliyah. None of the other stuff matters if they don’t get her portrayal just right. The songstress was one in a million and I crammed to think of any ladies with the talent and personality to portray her. After some thought and internet trolling we came up with two young ladies who may fit the bill. If August 25th is indeed the date that the biopic will air VH1 has probably already made it’s choice, but let’s have some fun anyway. Our picks are Keshia Chante, singer and current co-host of BET’s 106 & Park and Lisa Tucker, who was the tenth place finalist on the fifth season of American Idol. Check out the comparison pic below. Who would be your pick to play Aaliyah?
