I don’t believe this rumor in the least bit, but I can’t help but chuckle. Seriously, someone out there really, really wants a movie made about the life about Aaliyah.
That explains why every so often we always hear word of some singer or actress being tapped to play her in a purported biopic. Solange is the latest victim of said rumors and I’ll definitely only believe it when it’s on Deadline.
In the meantime, here’s what Illseed of AllHipHop has to say:
OH…here's something else to rile up the fans of the one and only Aaliyah.
There is a crazy rumor that the chick Solange has landed the role to play Aaliyah an upcoming biopic. Now, the rumor is Solange went out for the role earlier in the month and ended up getting it this week. She reportedly will be working with the same people that did the movie "Think Like A Man."
I don't know. I didn't even know Solange was any sort of actress. But, she almost never has her hair straight like Aaliyah did. This is as close to Aaliyah as could see with Solange.
To be fair to Sister Knowles, it really doesn’t matter how a person wears their hair in their daily life with respect to playing a character. After all, that is what make up and hair stylists are for.
Now, I don’t think an Aaliyah movie would be a bad idea per se. However, I’m not sure we’d get the whole story — which is the point of a biopic film. But since the late singer’s allure refuses to go away — and rightfully so — I suppose eventually a movie will indeed be made.
Here’s to hoping it’s done right, though. This is the part where you can cheer or bitch about Solange potentially playing Aaliyah on the big screen. Enjoy.
