Is this official? We sure hope so, the Aaliyah Movie also in the works through Lifetime has experienced a series of events. The controversy was expected but, to have the actual star of the film dropout was a little unexpected.Wendy Williams, the executive producer for the movie was proud to announce 23 year old Alexandra Shipp as the new star of Aaliyah: Princess of R&B. If you’re not too familiar with her Alexandra is known for being on MTV’s Awkward and Nickelodeon’s House of Anubis. The production of this film was of course postponed but, hopefully will jump back on track quickly. Alexandra you have a chip on your shoulder lets hope it doesn’t fall off.
