The X-Men: Apocalypse’ & ‘Aaliyah’ star Alexandra Shipp (aka Storm) has a message for her false fans.
Last year, the young actress graced our television stations when she took on the role of the late great Aaliyah in the biopic of the superstar’s life. The movie was a work of Wendy Williams. The air date of the biopic was November 15, 2015.
Aaliyah fans were super critical and not in a constructive way. The tweets we’re harsh to say the least about the Aaliyah Lifetime movie. Still of course, did not take this criticism lightly as you can tell from her response on Twitter.
Aaliyah sparkled in every way possible; singing, dancing, acting and even modeled for Fashion Icon–Tommy Hilfiger. There seemed to be nothing the star couldn’t excel in. So what exactly went wrong with the film? Did Shipping tank big screen, or was it mediocre production? Those questions May never be answered.
Still of course is extremely talented at what she does, no doubt. We believe fans maybe wanted too much from the young star. Truthfully, in order to make the best biopic, it needs to be filled with just as much drama as accomplishments. That is what makes entertaining films. We hadn’t really got that from the ‘One In A Million’ star.
What we do know is in the 90’s, she had a relationship with R. Kelly as a minor allegedly and was engaged to Dame Dash, owner of Roc-A-Fella records. What other information could we confirm? Not too much. The only tragic news we ever received about her was the fatal plane crash that abruptly ended her life.
Kudos to the producer, director and actors for at least attempting to honor her in this new era.
