Aaliyah Lifetime Biopic to Debut in November
Lifetime revealed that 'Aaliyah: Princess of R&B' will air on Nov. 15, obviously to the joy of the singer's loyal fanbase. The network made the announcement through its official Twitter page.
However, while fans are ecstatic over the news that Baby Girl's story will be told, not everyone is thrilled about the biopic. Aaliyah's family is against the project, claiming Lifetime did not reach out to them to get all of the facts about the late singer's life.
The 'One in a Million' songstress' storied career is also deserving of the silver screen not TV, her family argues. "Aaliyah was more than a singer, she was, and is still, an American music icon, whose legacy continues to live on and influence today's music culture, just as Ray Charles, Notorious B.I.G., Selena and Johnny Cash," they said in a statement.
Talk show host Wendy Williams is the movie's executive producer, and despite not working with Aaliyah's family, she says the biopic will be loaded with truths and actual facts about the singer's personal and professional life.
