Timbaland SLAMS Aaliyah The Princess of R&B Biopic!
The backlash to the Aaliyah biopic by Lifetime is about to EXPLODE since Timbaland SLAMS Aaliyah The Princess of R&B Biopic!
We are a little shocked after all the hype from Wendy Williams about the casting of the film. We watched it and agree with Timbo that the casting of the film was horrible.
R. Kelly (played by Clé Bennett) did NOT look like R Kelly nor did he embody the essence of the king of R&B. But that’s NOT all, we know Aaliyah’s family blocked the music from being used in the film because they did NOT want this biopic made. As for Missy, Timbaland and Damon Dash – Not one of the actors looked like the actual real life people. It was frustrating and took away from the film and then makes you question the producers asking “What the hell were they thinking?”
The biopic came off rushed and only gave viewers snippets of Aaliyah’s rise to fame, but the problem is that the film comes off incomplete with poor casting choices. We can only imagine that everyone that played a part in her life and the was portrayed in this film is ANGERED by the casting choices. For example, Anthony Grant who portrayed Damon Dash only had the talk down a little but missed the mark on who Damn is. Chattrisse Dolabaille (Missy Elliott), Izaak Smith (Timabaland) Eric Ferrell (Andy McQueen) – NOT one of the actors looked like who they portrayed and it really upset us tonight.

He continued with this video, saying it was funny tonight, but they will feel his wrath tomorrow:
