The HOT 97 Morning Show


After all the crazy controversy surrounding Zendaya Coleman’s role as Aaliyah in the Lifetime biopic, she has decided to back out! After getting all kinds of backlash after being casted Zendaya revealed she backed out of the film because “production-wise, it wasn’t all the way there,because it’s someone that I honor and I respect so much, it has to be 128 percent, especially for all her fans, including myself.” She also stated to BET that: “I didn’t feel like it was all the way there, so I didn’t want to do that. And when the time comes when it’s done right and it’s 100 percent, by all means, I will be the first person there ready to go.” Lifetime broke the news by saying “We are sad Zendaya will no longer portray Aaliyah. Production is currently on hold.”

Hmmm.. we do agree these are big shoes to fill, and Zendaya probably felt the pressure of it all.
