    I think keisha would be a good canidiate for the aaliyah bio movie, she do have some simular features as to aaliyah and hopefully she does well! ps. Me being a big fan of aaliyah’s

  2. brittmey dake hall says:

    i think meagan good looks more like aaliyah and that she has that one soulful spirit that brightens up the room when you walk in to also know that she has and always will be a good actor.

  3. Albert Tsibu says:

    Keisha Chante Is A Very Pretty Girl Don’t Get Me Wrong But There Is 1 Problem… She Is Not American She’s From Canada & Aaliyah was From Brooklyn but Raised in Detroit. Keisha Chante has some similarities as Aaliyah but for in my opinion I Prefer an Actress Who Is American

  4. taylor says:

    Keshia chante looks like Aaliyah a little bit but not enough to play her in a movie.I have been waiting a long time for someone to make an Aaliyah movie and i was worried about who they would pick to play her and i don’t think they picked very well.Aaliyah was a talented and beautiful person on the inside and out and she should be portrayed the same way…not saying that keshia chante won’t portray her that way just that somebody else could do it better.
    RIP Aaliyah
    Gone but never ever forgotten!!!

  5. stop hating says:

    give the girl a chance, angela didnt look like tina, but she still did her thing.

  6. Rojannie says:

    Aaliyah is Aaliyah is Aaliyah. There’s nobody in the universe that could portray her to perfection. Having said that, they should at least get someone who would come a little close. Don’t get just anybody; hire someone who could sparkle like Aaliyah had.

  7. miss annji says:

    I AM NOT HATING ON THE GIRL BUT THIS CHICK LOOKS NOTHING LIKE AALIYAH, I CANT BELIEVE THEY ARE GOING TO p$$s OFF HER FANS LIKE THIS. LISA TUCKER IS A EXACT RINGER FOR AALIYAH. GO TO HER MYSPACE AND CHECK OUT HER ONLINE. SHE AND AALIYAH HAVE SO MANY SIMILARITIES. I HATE WHEN THESE CORN BALL A$$ DIRECTORS WHO DONT KNOW THE PEOPLE GET THESE WANNA BE CELEBRITIES WHO LOOK NOTHING LIKE THE PEOPLE THEY ARE ATTEMPTING TO BE

  8. miss annji says:

    CHECK OUT LISA TUCKER SHE SHOULD HAVE WON THE PART OF AALIYAH. GHETTO GIRL KEISHA CHANTE SHOULD NOT BE PLAYING HER

  9. Tee Lonia says:

    she only looks llike Aaliyah in the one picture with her blowing a kiss. thats not right pick someone who will do my girl right!!!!!!!

  10. Ikea says:

    Man, dis girl don’t give nobody the Aaliyah vibe she not even 4rm america. Megan good is the perfect person to play the role of Aaliyah. Not keyshia chante’. Please respect Aaliyah and her fans by not letting keyshia play the role of, Aaliyah.

  11. Michelle says:

    I love Aaliyah, I am a great fan! I am not happy with your choice of woman to play the part of the best performer who ever graced us with her presence. Best not to make the movie, you will never find someone who can match up to her! Let Aaliya’s legacy live on and never be forgotten! RIP LiLi, we Love you!

  12. dayshawn says:

    Keisha Chante I REALLY DON’T KNOW MUCH ABOUT HER OR HER MUSIC BUT SHE DOES KINDA AND I DO MEAN KINDA LOOK LIKE AALIYAH BUT AT LEAST GIVE HER A CHANCE TO SHOW US WHAT SHE CAN DO EATHER WAY I WILL GO SEE THA MOVIE AND GET THA SOUNDTRACK I LOVE AALIYAH I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A FAN EVER SINCE HER FIRST ALBUM AGE AIN’T NOTHING BUT A NUMBER 1994 R.I.P. BABYGIRL MISS YOU

  13. Sondra says:

    Now,i’ve never heard of Keisha Chante but DAMN!! Just give the girl a CHANCE!!!.My GOD why does it matter if she’s from America or not?Or from Brooklyn or not? When jennifer lopez was cast to play Selena(R.I.P), she wasn’t made of Mexican/Native American decent or from Selena’s hometown of Corpus Christi,TX .Jenn’s Puerto Rican and hails from the Bronx,NY. ALOT of people really didnt want her to play the late Selena but after people saw how she protrayed her,the warmed up to her and accepted her.I ‘m sure you all wil accept Keisha the same way.(I’m hoping)If Aaliyah’s family felt really uncomfortable that Keisha Chante was cast to play their daughter, do u think they would’ve said something by now and casted another actress??? if u really look at her,she really does look like her.She’s beautiful just like Aaliyah was and they got alot of facial simialrartie. I can’t wait to see the movie. *And Megan Good don’t look like Aaliyah.

    Rest in peace Baby Girl I miss u sooooooooooooo much :)
    Aaliyah 1979-2001

  14. Rere says:

    Keisha Chante can have the chance to play as Aaliyah but I’m sorry to me when I picturing her and Aaliyah, they don’t look exactly alike maybe she favor her, but don’t look like her at all. Like stop hating said angela didnt look like tina, but she good as a actress in the movie because she portrayed as tina turner and I know Keisha Chante will do the same.

  15. Ma Speaks Da Truth says:

    I DON’T THINK KEISHA CHANTE LOOKS LIKE AALIYAH. TO BE HONEST WITH YOU, IF THEY GOT STACEY DASH TO DO IT, THAT WOULD BE GOOD. BECAUSE SHE KNEW AALIYAH PERSONALLY, AND SHE LOOKS A LITTLE BIT LIKE HER, IF THEY PUT SOME MAKEUP ON HER, AND SHE DIED HER HAIR BLACK. OR EITHER ALICIA KEYS…SHE WOULD BE GOOD FOR THE PART. IF ANYBODY EVER SAYS CASSIE SHOULD BE HER IN THE MOVIE…U NEEDA SLAP YO SELF, I KNOW I WOULDN’T WANT SOMEBODY WHO HAS BEEN LABELED AS AN INDUSTRY HO, TO BE ME IN A MOVIE!! LOL. BUT STACEY OR ALICIA WOULD BE PERFECT. THEY’VE NEVER REALLY HAD ANY BAD NAMES FOR THEM SELVES IN THIS BUSINESS WORLD. I’D LIKE THEM BETTER IN THE MOVIE. AND NAW, MEGAN GOOD IS A LITTLE TOO DARK, AND HER LIPS ARE MUCH FULLER THAN AALIYAH’S. AND BESIDES THAT SHE HAS NO FEATURES OF AALIYAH. THEY NEED SOMEBODY WHO IS CLOSER IN FEATURES; PHYSICALLY. AND SOMEONE WHO SINGS, AND IS MAINLY AFRICAN AMERICAN. ALICIA KINDA LOOKS LIKE AALIYAH. STACEY DOES TOO CAUSE OF HER EYES..AND SOME OF HER FEATURES. BUT MEAGAN NOT REALLY A GOOD CHOICE, SHE IS PRETTY. BUT NAW. HONESTLY I DON’T THINK ANYBODY CAN PULL OFF THE AALIYAH FEATURES OR LOOK. BESIDES THE 2 PPL I SAID; ALICIA KEYS AND STACEY DASH. I MISS AALIYAH. I WISH SHE WUZ STILL HERE, SHE’D BE DOIN’ IT ALL!! AND SHE COULD SHOW CASSIE HOW UR SUPPOSED TO ROCK THE INDUSTRY.

    R.I.P BABY GIRL 1979-2001 WE MISS U!!!

  16. Nick says:

    Goodness!! Alicia keys? Na-ah wont full me, no not at all. I think keisha’s okay for the part

  17. Nick says:

    Goodness!! Alicia keys? Na-ah wont fool me, no not at all. I think keisha’s okay for the part

  18. WTF says:

    LISA TUCKER I AGREE AS WELL, LISA LOOKS WAY MORE LIKE AALIYAH and she can SING!

  19. ms ktownblueberry says:

    why in the hell would someone even consider thinking that stacey dash or alica keys wud be right for the part lol thats some rachet shid but i personally think keshia wud be right for the part even tho i’ve never heard of her till today but look at her she’s beautiful just like aaliyah damn i thought it was her lol but ya’ll stop haten on a sista and give her a try damn wats wrong wit that why wud ya’ll want some one who doesnt even look like her to play as her i dont get that shid but hey everybody aint abled

    JUST GIVE THA GURL A CHANCE THEN IF SHE DOESNT DO GOOD THATS WEN U GET MAD!!!!

  20. andy c says:

    Keisha Chante does resemble aaliyah jux luk her up on youtube n watch her music video-but 1 thing 4 sho is that she does not lite up or spark the way aaliyah do but i think she is by far a good fit-Lisa Tucker is too young unless she plays the aaliyah when she was 1st startin out. Meegan Good is too dark to resemble aaliyah-Destiny Lightsy is someone tryna luk like aaliyah n her copycat pix are slutty wen Aaliyah’s real pix were class n stylish-keily williams the lite skin chik w/the gap frum 3LW kinda lux like aaliyah n she luk like she tried 2 copy aaliyah wen the group 1st came out-but no i dunt think she shud play her-i dunno-Alicia Keys has that deep azz voice n wud not sound like Aaliyah -n Stacey Dash do resemble Aaliyah a lil bit but she is kinda dark -n who wud play her if herself wus in the movie cuz she wuz aaliyah’s gewd friend n Damon Dash’s sister-No matter who plays her I think Aaliyah’s family wud pick the rite canidate-n jux like Angela Basset playin Tina Turner n JLO playin Selena did gewd- -I’m hoping whoever plays Aaliyah’s role will do it justice.

  21. Ma Speaks Da Truth says:

    LOL, I understand y’all..and I got a real question; Why are people now wanting to cast R&B singer CASSIE For the role of Aaliyah?! that’s some crazy shid..!!! CAssie is pretty and somewhat talented in singing and dancing; but be 4real..the girl sells her self sexually in her music videos. Her music is good no doubt..but in her videos she’s always talkin’ about sex..if you ever stop to lisen to her WORDS and not the BEAT you will here her talking about havin’ sex..Aaliyah didn’t do that..yea she mighta made references like that; but she wuz more smooth with how she worded her self..I think Keisha Chante would fit the part of Aaliyah…as far as Meagan Good?! NOOOOOO!!!! She is pretty too [no homo] but she really has no facial features of Aaliyah’s and she’s a little bit darker and not the same height or close to it as Aaliyah. U would be able to tell her as soon as you seen her; she wuz a little bit more ghetto than Aaliyah..Keisha would be better, her being from Canada tho they have accents..so I hope her accent doesn’t get in the way of her acting[I vote personally for her to get the part]. And if I see CASSIE in the movie instead..umma hurl!! I hope she doesn’t even consider it..that would upset alotta Aaliyah fans..but Keisha Chante, u go girl!!

    R.I.P Aaliyah a.k.a Baby Girl 1979-2001 You ARE a One In A Million~ NOBODY ELSE can be just like you..

  22. Sincere says:

    I dnt even know why yall going back & forth on this. If they decide to pick Keisha Chante for the role aint s$$t yall can do about it. Dnt like dnt go see the movie personally. Stacy Dash could not play Aaliyah neitha can Alicia Keys…who da hell said that? I agree that Lisa Tucker looks much like Aaliyah but can she act? Do yall know her personality? So yu cant say she would do a better job than Keisha. Like they said, they didnt thynk that Jennifer Lopez could play Selena but she killed it && it was hot so why are yall hating so much…..&& Meagan Good??? That person should be slapped!

    Every1 loved Aaliyah & I doubt that anyone who would that role would disappoint us!

  23. THELIGHT says:

    Aaliyah was an original…to have an (vertually) unknown singer with no known acting abilities to play her is a travesty. There are actors out there who would do the part justice like Lauren London. She so could do Aaliyah. Kiesha Chante I didn’t even know who that was until a few days ago! She is too jr high for me…she is too saved by the bell. If the movie was made for tv…sure she could play Aaliyah, but on the big screen? Never. I am a true Aaliyah fan and I will not go to the movie if she is in it. I don’t see her doing Aaliyah well at all. I loved Aaliyah for her intelligence as well as her ability to entertain us. Aaliyah is a MORE THAN A WOMAN….keisha is a lil girl from some jr high in Canada none the less. Canada? ugh.

  25. THELIGHT says:

    I am not going to see the movie if Keisha is cast in the role because I have seen her interviews and she is cotton candy at best.

  26. THELIGHT says:

    Keisha is giving Minni Mouse. Aaliyah gives WOMAN>>>>I feel that Lauren London would do justice to the part. I am not sure why Kiesha was chosen….she is not an actor…so they are taking a huge risk of making a bad movie. I am not going to see it if Keisha is in it. It would be a waste of my time. I would rather watch the documentaries of Aaliyah instead. If she (keisha) does a very bad job she will lose her budding career as a singer and an actor. Two careers will be diminished in one fail swoop. I wouldn’t take the role if I were a singer because I would want to have my own identity.

  27. THELIGHT says:

    To Sincere: There is a lot we can do….and that is not go to the movie and it will bomb at the theatres and get bad ratings. Then keisha’s career will be over. How about those apples? She is risking having (us) the true fans of Aaliyah not buy her albums(I am not a fan of keishas)I didn’t even know who she was until a few days ago and I am not feelin her at all. Too “Saved by the Bell” and “Degrassi jr High” for me. I am so beyond what she about. She can’t teach me a thing(yaawns). Seen her kind before and I put them on ignore.

  28. THELIGHT says:

    Why choose an unkown? I am not pleased being a true Aaliyah fan. I would have expected them to find a qualified actor to be in the role. Not a “want to be” singer/actor who I have never heard of before a few days ago. What awards has she won? what movie has she starred in? How many records has she sold. It is a gimmick at best. A light skinned girl who wears her hair? like Aaliyah and that’s it. No style of her own a mear copy cat. uUUUUug I am too informed to fall for this one. Try another one. uggggh

  29. Jamila says:

    I think Keisha would be a great candiate. Lisa Tucker looks nothing like Aaliyah and neither does Stacey Dash or Megan Good.

  30. kenya says:

    f$$k all you haters keshia cole is playing aaliyah yay keshia cole looks way prettier than megan good with her big a$s lips have you seen megan goods side profile i mean dont get me wrong she’s cute but as aaliyah? you must be smoking crack keshia cole is the best candidate to play aaliyah and just cuz she’s canadian don’t mean s$$t canadian girls eat american girls food when it comes to looks all day every day especially in you guys southern countries damn y’all kind of obese no offense

  31. Keegan says:

    Keisha kinda favors Babygirl. The reason why the cast an unknown is simple, they want to see Aaliyah on the screen, not someone everybody knows. For example say they cast Meagan Good, who would you see on the screen Meagan or Aaliyah? I know Angela Bassett was well known but c’mon Angela’s a great actress, so of course she killed it. Like some others said about Jennifer Lopez with Selena. Jennifer was kinda unknown, & damn she made you believe she was Selena. Aaliyah’s family wouldn’t just let anyone portray their daughter. Only thing we can do is wait & hope & pray that Keisha does Miss Aaliyah Dana Haughton aka “Babygirl” justice. As a huge Aaliyah fan I hope Keisha can kill it.

    R.I.P. Aaliyah You’re One in a Billion

  32. KUPKAKE says:

    NO GUYS THEY PICK DESTINY LIGNSTY TO DO IT DIPSHITS THEY ALWAYZ DO THAT s$$t THERE ARE GOING TO p$$s ME OFF WITH THAT s$$t CAUSE SHE’S UGLY LOOKS NUTTHIN LIKE BABYGIRL OMFG…. THERE REALLY GOING TO MAKE AALIYAHS FANS DISSAPOINTED…. SHE DOESNT SING WELL,DONT HAVE AALIYAH SWAG,STYLE,FACE,PRETTY BODY NOT EVEN IN SHAPE OR SMALL JUST LIKE AALIYAH… AT ALL I WOULD RATHER CIARA OR KEISHIA CHANTE IM REALLY NOT SATISFIED WITH THEIR CHOOSING…THIS JUST p$$s ME OFF AND MY DAY IS HELL NOW….

  33. Tata says:

    I think Ciara should play the part of Aaliyah.

  34. TYS says:

    Lmfao, you people cant be serious, Meagan good, Stacy Dash? (Two Brown skinned sisters), & don’t take that a$s no racial s$$t cause I’m black! But come on now. How could you try and say them two look like Aaliyah are you stupid? Then say Keisha Chante doesn’t look like her. Just like someone stated J.Lo is Puerto rican but played an Mexican the wonderful Selena and she did the damn thing. Ya don’t even give this girl a chance to show what she got to bring to the table.

  35. shan says:

    I have heard of keshia chante. I’m from her hometown. a few facts:
    - she can barely sing (in her defence, i’m sure she has vocal coaches and may have improved but she still isn’t quite there). Her voice is very …. nasal and deep… weird combo, i know but… i just dont see how she’s gonna pull off aaliyah
    - she can’t dance. they’ll have to work hard on that
    -she can’t act. i saw her in a show and it sucked. i saw her in a commercial for kids in africa or something, she looked like she barely cared.
    - she has a massive forehead

    Like honestly, if she seriously is in this movie, it’s going to ruin it for me.

  36. erika says:

    she would be an obvious choice BUT theyre not even trying to find and look deep tryin out people who are not famous and that have good acting potential

  37. kiki says:

    I love Aaliyah and am a #1 fan and I don’t think Lisa Tucker or Keisha looks much like Aaliyah however I think both singers(Keisha and lisa)slighty resemble the star,I think the woman who was in Aaliyah’s”More than A woman”at the very ending of the video looks very much like her or better yet her cousin that attended the funeral,being the fact that they share the same blood they look so much alike it was scary only difference was that the relative was of a very light complexion and light brown hair. However if they wanted someone that looked”exactly”like Aaliyah to play the role they would have,and even then they would not have been able to find the “exact match”but they were looking for someone who could play the role of Aaliyah the best….. I say give the girl a chance you never know how she’ll do.:)

  38. kaylaa says:

    KEISHA CHANTE IS A FAKE b$$$h WHO IS FROM BRAMPTON I LIVE BY HER
    HER ONLY FRIENDS IN HER SCHOOL ARE ONLY HER FRIENDS CUZ SHES SLIGHTY FAMOUS AND SHE BUYS THEM EXSPENSIVE CLOTHING LINES
    SHE SWAGGA JACKS PEOPLE AND STEALS BEATS FROM LEGENDS
    SHE BETTER NOT PLAY THE ROLE OR ILL FREAK
    AALIYAH IS MORE BEAUTIFUL AND SIGNIFICANT THEN SHE’LL EVER BE !!
    SHES ALSO SMARTER , MORE SOPHISTACATED , AND NATURALLY TALENTED THEN KEISHA CAN EVER HOPE FOR !!
    KEISHA IS TOO YOUNG AND NOT CAPABLE FOR THE PART NOR SHOULD BE CONSIDERED FOR A ROLE THAT SURPASSES HER ABILITY

    i love aaliyah and i think someone who is unknown and has the ability to step into her shoes , that can acurately portray her likeness should be her in the movie instead of keisha or cassie or any famous gal out there ..

  39. Diva Dee says:

    I think with the right acting and lighting ,she’d be a great choice.I agree that Lisa Tucker could have played The Late Great Aaliyah as well. It does not matter about skin color or looks really.It’s about talent and taking direction.If she studies Aaliyah’s personality she (Keshia) can play her.Jamie didn’t look like Ray,but damned if you didn’t think about him looking like Ray when you saw that movie. He played the hell out of Mr. Ray Charles. Other actors who played the hell out of a character are Denzel/Malcolm,Will Smith/ Mr. Ali,Diana/Billie these people didn’t look the personalities they were portraying but they studied these great people and in the words of a great man,Mr Ray Charles Robinson, “They made It do what it do baby.” Another thing black peolple let’s get out of that light skin, darkskin,american, canadian crap. Black people are the most unbreakable folks on the planet. We can adapt to anything .We can do anyhing if we put our minds to it. Ya’ll know we’re the most influential creatures on this earth. We detirmine whats hot or not.Everybody wants to be us.So when down a sister everybody downs that sister, when we down a brother, everyone downs that brother.We must know when to speak and if we speak make sure it means something. Darkskin or Lightskinned doesn’t mean a damn thing when it comes to talent.Give that lady a chance to prove herself pleeeeeease.

  40. kaylaa says:

    bun that
    an unknown artist should play the part and thats that

  41. Diva Dee says:

    Go OBAMA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE MY PRESIDENT. YOU CAN DO WHATEVER YA WANT TO DO.
    JUST LIVE YOUR LIFE ,AYYY-AYY-AYYYYY.

  42. SJ says:

    If you are a true fan of Aaliyah you would know that Aaliyah was a very humble and loving person. She would want her fans to see her life and accept her movie. The girl (Keisha) is NOT tryna take Aaliyah’s place, it’s just Aaliyah’s OWN FAMILY AND FRIENDS saw fit enough for Keisha to play and portray Aaliyah. As a true fan of Aaliyah, I am just happy and excited that Aaliyah’s life will be on the bigs screen!!! It makes me so happy :) its coming soon ya’ll get excited!!! Dont hate!

  43. HOLLYWOOD says:

    mannnnnnnnn 4 all da HATERZ hop off….Keisha does look like her sum wut but at da same time dey are gonna make her look like her even more becasue dats wut dey do when dey get some1 to play anotha person….Do yo thang Keisha ill be da 1st at the movies 2 watch it as AALIYAH”s #1 fan……GOOD LUCK

  44. mya says:

    i dont think she looks like aaliyah at all she looks more like keshia cole if you ask me but i think i will give the movie a chance i think i would of been a better choice

  45. NaeNae*Baby. says:

    GO CANADA im so proud
    it doesnt matter if shesz american or not shesz black and she repin aaliyah
    s$$t
    some ppl are so narominded

  46. Erykah says:

    Destiny Lightsy- should play aaliyah she looks wayyy more like herr

  47. Aaron Delaney says:

    I just have to speak on this…kiesha chante….shes a pretty girl but for her to be playing Aaliyah is ridiculous to me…she looks nothing like her…and Aaliyah had one of the most perfect noses…her nose is a lil too fat…i think a american female should play her as well…Aaliyah was from brooklyn…raised in Detroit…this girl is from another country…dont get me wrong im going to support the film but i myself could have picked a better female to play Aaliyah…….Aaliyah was alot lighter than her too and Aaliyah’s hair was JET black…i just hope she does a good job…she has BIG BIG shoes to fill.

  48. AJGV says:

    Isn’t it amazing how humans are so judgmental. Is it an inborn act? NO. Keshia Chante is the perfect candidate for the Aaliyah role. As a matter of fact, they couldn’t have found a better young, bright, artistic, talented and gifted female with class, positivity and a nice voice. She acts sings and dances. Has released two albums on Sony records and will soon be starring in another tv series. Who are any of you to say she doesn’t deserve the role. Everything about Keshia Chante is all real and natural. Do any of you know her? She can sing. Can Megan Good sing? NO! Can Stacey Dash sing? NO! Come on people give a girl a chance and speaking of light. Keshia is highly light. Never judge something or someone when you don’t know what you’re talking about. How many of you support Celine Dione, Avril Levine, Tamia, and so on from Canada. That’s sooo prejudice to judge just because of where someone is from. Keshia is very warm hearted, nice, intelligent and smart. So look out for Keshia breaking out in the U.S. as an singer/actress

  49. mufshades says:

    How dare you say she looks like Keshia Cole, that’s such an insult. Watch your mouth. You obviously have a weak eye or need a prescription refill on those glasses.

  50. julia johnson says:

    MEGAN GOOD DONT LOOK s$$t LIKE AALIYAH

  51. NothinUcanSay says:

    THEY WILL NEVER FIND ANYONE THAT LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE AALIYAH BUT A GOOD ACTRESS/SINGER/DANCER CAN PLAY THE PART. WE ALL HOLD AALIYAH NEAR AND DEAR TO OUR HEARTS, I HAVENT EVER COME ACROSS A PERSON TO SAY ANYTHING NEGATIVE ABOUT HER. SHE IS ONE STAR TRULY MISSED AND I JUST HOPE THAT HER STORY IS TOLD TRUE TO LIFE. PEOPLE ARE GETTIN SO WOUND UP ABOUT WHO WILL PLAY THE PART BUTTHE CONTRACT IS SIGNED AND I JUST LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING HOW WELL SHE DOES. ANGELA DIDNT LOOK LIKE TINE, J.LO DIDNT LOOK LIKE SELENA, JAMIE DIDNT LOOK LIKE RAY AND SO ON AND SO ON…THE POINT IS THEY MADE THE CHARACTER COME TO LIFE WITH PASSIONATE PORTRAYALS. PEOPLE NEED TO JUST BE REALISTIC AND GIVE THE WOMAN A CHANCE…I SWEAR Y’ALL WONT BE HAPPY UNLESS AALIYAH COMES BACK TO PLAY HERSELF IN THE MOVIE. I WISH HER LUCK AND AALIYAH…I WE ALL STILL MISS U. R.I.P.

    LOVE ALWAYS…
    YOUR FANS 4 LIFE

  52. NothinUcanSay says:

    OH AND FYI FOR THE PEOPLE THAT SUGGESTED STACY DASH, MEAGAN GOOD, KEYSHIA COLE, CASSIE OR LAUREN LONDON…YOU SHOULD JUST BE SLAPPED WITH A DIRTY PLUNGER LOL NONE OF THOSE PEOPLE COULD PORTRAY AALIYAH FOR NUMEROUS REASONS. MOSTLY NO MUSICAL TALENTS BUT IF UR A TRUE FAN YOU WILL LET THIS GIRL DO HER BEST AND WAIT FOR THE RESULTS. OBVIOUSLY THEY PICKED WHO THEY THOUGHT WOULD BE BEST OH AND DESTINY LIGHTY MAY HAVE BEEN GOOD BUT ITS BEEN CHOSEN SO NOW WE WAIT. PEACE

  53. amanti says:

    I just think all yall is hating everytime a beatiful women is picked to play a special role in this industry yall provide them with negative feed back she is pretty and looks just like aaliyah so stop hating and meagan good does not look like aaliyah do u feel that way because meagan good is skinny and has long weave. anyway she is playing aaliyah and im happy she is yall hoes just gotta deal with it. she got haters so she doing something right

  54. ebbiej says:

    Why is this such a huge debate? People can say what they want but how hard is it for another singing to play another singer? Another thing what does someone’s musical talents or dancing ability have to do with anything. She is just simply playing a role, how hard can it be. Come to think of it they shouldn’t even make a movie about her life IMO.

  55. tay says:

    THANK YU SONDRA…..YU GOT RIGHT 2 THA POINT….THANKS GURL… && OMFG EVERY1 JUS NEEDS 2 CHILL && GIVE THA GURL A GOT DAMN CHANCE,,,,&& DONT GET ME WRONG MEAGEN GOOD IS PRETTY BUT SHE DONT LOOK LYKE AALIYAH…YALL ALL NEED 2 GEY YALL EYES CHECK…LYKE 4REAL…..SHE CANT EVEN SING SO YY SHOULD SHE PLAY AALIYAH…HUH THINK ABT IT..IIGHT…..&& YALL NEED 2 JUS GIVE THA GURL A CHANCE && C HOW SHE DOES && IF YALL REALLY LOVE AALIYAH YALL WOULD LOVE THA MOVIE NO MATTER WHO PLAYS HER BC ITS ABT HER && HER LEGACY…..DAMN….

  56. KM says:

    I am a huge fan of aaliyah and always have been i think LISA TUCKER should play the role of Aaliyah not only because she looks like her but she can sing. Lisa Tucker favors Aaliyah…Keshia Chante may have one or two pictures that “kinda” look like aaliyah but ummmm not a good choice. Am I hatin no but i think if directors are going to do an aaliyah movie they should pick someone who looks similar to aaliyah. There will never be an exact match or someone who looks just like her but LISA TUCKER is as close as it gets point blank.
    Check her myspace…fans seem to think the same thing. (SHE LOOKS LIKE HER W/OUT TRYING)

  57. KM says:

    LISA TUCKER

  58. C.C. says:

    i dont know what is wrong with you people????? keshia chate does so look like aaliyah. i mean so does stacey dash and lisa tucker, but i dont understand why you people are being so mean to her, like half of you probably dont know who the hell she is. i mean give her a chance, half the people you named to play her is just becuase you know her or whatever. jus give the chick a chance.

    well damn why do everybody expect the girl too look damn near identical to aaliyah? it don’t matter what she looks like as long as she do a good job making the film. its millions of ppl who can pass for aaliyah and probably couldnt play her role for s$$t so looks don’t got s$$t to do with it

  60. Sira says:

    I think that this girl will do a an amzing job in the movie! I’d pick her any day over whats her face Megan Good.She aint all that good!

  61. NaH*NaH says:

    First thangz first I am an aaliyah fan and I love her dearly …. Yes I’m sure nobody else can beh her and do exactly wut she does or wut she did but I reeallty don’t care as long as Aaliyah getz wut she deserves and thatz her own Movie…..K.C maybe don’t look jus like her sound jus like her or dance jus like her but she does cum close she can sing looks good in anything she wears and iz pretty…..and thatz way closer than meagan good or any other female…..yea Meagan Good iz a good actress but she ain’t Aaliyah Material 4 a Bio film iz she??? No! So I say Keisha Chante iz tha best 4 tha Film do yah thing GuRL

  62. TinyA says:

    I am a true AAliyah fan…I think that it’s final who Aaliyah friends and family think who should play this part and I will be one of the first fans to watch this movie when it comes out! I am just glad that Aaliyah movie is going to be made and that her story will finally be told. RIP AAliyah! and this true fan thinks that this will be one of the greatest story told!

  63. cheynise says:

    I am huge fan of Aaliyah always and forever. I’m not sure if Keisha Chante can play the part as Aaliyah but actually no 1 can bcuz she was really beautiful and talented and a GREAT dancer, she was just a perfect angel. I think cassie could of played Aaliyah good bcuz she is a good dancer and singer but im not sure at acting but keisha is beautiful we all will just have 2 wait and c how she is going 2 do but I give her, her best hope she can fill her shoes which i doubt any1 can. But the film will be a hit i no dat much and Aaliyah music and everything will always continue and im definitely going 2 make sure my children no she is I LOVE U babygirl. REST IN PEACE

  64. Essence says:

    There will never be another Aaliyah, nor will there be anyone who slightly compares to her. She was just far too beautiful.

    Give this Keisha Chante person a chance. Hollywood is Hollywood. They make the movies. We just have the options of watching them. She just might do a good job… Give her the opportunity to prove herself.

  65. love musicGrl says:

    I was on youtube and came across this girl names Shianne Phillips. She’s absolutly amazing. She can sing and she resembles Aaliyah, many people have commented on her vids saying that…you guys go check her out and then maybe she can play Aaliyah instead of Keshia. Ive heard Keshia’s stuff and she cant sing at ALL! Aaliyah was a great singer, so doesnt it make sence for another great singer to play her in her BIOPIC?
    once again its
    SHIANNE PHILLIPS
    <3 meghan H.

  66. cuteLittleThing says:

    yeah ive heard of her too…Yeah i totally agree musicGrl…she should play Aaliyah. Shianne also see,s like a really nice down to earth person…ive heard Keshia is a real B*tch and a diva..but no one even knows who she is…Do we really want her to play our princess Aaliyah? no i think shianne should…
    who else agrees?

  67. ashley says:

    Okay, seriously, I agree that Keisha Chante is an attractive girl but OMG. She is not NEARLY as pretty as Aaliyah and I agree that the actress should not only be American, but should at least be from Detroit or Brooklyn to get that East coast feel. she does have some similarities to Aaliyah’s face, but in my opinion, she looks more like 15 year old Aaliyah than Aaliyah as a woman. I’m disappointed, so she had better blow us away with her acting, singing, dancing and all around Aaliyah Persona. On top of that, Keisha looks like a ho with her T&A all out like that. That was not Aaliyah at all. She doesn’t look down to earth to me. And may I add, I think I look more like Aaliyah than that chick does…….*sigh. This mess had better be good…….

  68. kidra says:

    I feel that Kiesha Chante looks nothing like Aaliyah she doesn’t have that vibe like Aaliyah and I think that they could have picked someone better. I don’t think she is the right person to do the job because she doesn’t sound like her and I just think that they picked the wrong person and I hate the fact that I have been waiting for so long for them to come out with an Aaliyah movie and now they finally are going to do it but just not with the right person. Aaliyah is very beautiful and they have this girl that is not from america playing as Aaliyah our sweet ANGEL but you know what its all good I’m still going to go see it though cause thats just how much love I have for her and how big of a fan I am I think about her every day to be honest. R.I.P Aaliyah Dana Haughton We Love You Baby Girl

  69. cuteLittleThing says:

    what do you guys think about this Shianne Phillips girl? I think she’d do a great jobs, her personality is kinda like aaliyahs too…Check her out and write on here what you think…iunno why i just love this girl i think she;d do a GREAT job!

  70. kacey says:

    kielly williams{{from 3lw and cheetah girls}} could pull aaliyah off very well

  71. Addison says:

    1st off, Keshia Chante is a bettter candidate than half the people mentioned. Meagan Good is too dark and Stacey Dash looks nothing like her, I don’t even think Lisa Tucker looks anything like her. she’s just light skinned. Keshia Chante is a very well-known, award winning singer in Canada. her fame is the equivalent of what Beyonce has here. she was in the game since she was 14. had her first juno award winning album when she was 16 [a juno award is like our grammys] and her second was a platinum, juno award winner as well, on top of that, she has starred in a very popular Canadian sitcom entitled “The Kink In My hair” and has gotten rave reviews for her performance. and for the record, she isn’t a “junior high wannabe” as someone stated. she’s 20. just b/c you don’t know her, or her music does not mean she is a nobody. there are musicians all over the world who are bigger, and more popular than Beyonce that you’ve never heard of. you people need to get your facts straight. someone else posed a great point, J.Lo and Angela didn’t look anything like Selena or Tina but they played the heck out of their parts. give the girl a chance, I’m sure she will nail it. I also think Lauren London would be a good choice too, a way better candidate than Meagan

  72. Mila says:

    Well, to say u prefer an American over a Canadian is crazy…cause in the movie Selena Jennifer Lopez is PuertoRican and she played a Mexican…yea, Mexicans were upset at first, but She Killed that movie & it was great! SO maybe Keshia can do the same for Aaliyah..I’m a fan of both so I’m excited about the movie!

  73. Patriece says:

    i dnt know where you people are going with meagan good (i do like her but)- her lipsare too big n no musical/dancing talent n no resemblance.. stacey dash- too old to play her, no musical or dancing talent and no resemblance at all..kiely williams that funny looking buck teet lanky chick who is not in the slightest bit humble chick who cant sing and would not do the film justice at all..ive never heard of keisha chante but she does resemble aaliyah a bit maybe people should give her a chance,..they wanted to pick an unknown personality and i think they may have chosen wisely..if they were going to choose a known celebrity i think ciara would be a good contestent, she may not look like aaliyah but her voice is sweet and soft like aaliyahs and well we all know the girl can move!

  74. cuteLittleThing says:

    Check out Shianne Phillips! every keeps writing on her vids thats she shoudl play aaliyah i 100% agree

  75. dee804 says:

    The thing with keisha being canadian doesn’t mean anything. Long as the actress resembles the person she’s playing that all that matters. I’ll say this, Keisha is fine as hell. But Aaliyah really doesn’t need a movie made about her. I liked her, but besides the whole r.kelly scandal, her life was pretty boring.

  76. dee804 says:

    And I laugh at some of these comparisons to aaliyah. People saying megan good looks like aaliyah, or stacy dash looks like aaliyah. Damn, I guess all of us niggas just look alike to you huh? LMAO
    They don’t look jack sh** like aaliyah.

  77. keyinza browne says:

    WELL, SHE RESEMBLES AALIYAH A LITTLE BIT, I THINK SHE WILL DO VERY WELL IN PLAYING MY FAVORITE SINGER AALIYAH. JUSS GIVE HER A CHANCE. LOVE ALWAYS. KEYINZA BROWNE.

  78. JoJo says:

    Lisa Tucker doesn’t look anything like Aaliyah she looks like Natalie Cole. Meagan Good, not even. When I first saw this girl in Bow Wow’s video a few years ago I was like “Aww that girl kinda reminds me of Aaliyah.” Keisha Chante is the closest looking girl to Aaliyah I’ve seen in a long time…there was this other person but I can’t remember. Plus when you have an unkown (for example J Lo) playing an icon it’s easier to see the person being portrayed. And by the way Canadians are as American as a girl from Detroit, USA. Besides do you know how many “American” movies and shows are filmed in Canada with a mostly Canadian cast? Or how many US actors play people from other countries? So, far it seems this young lady has been chosen due to her likeness to the goddess Aaliyah. All that matters now is…Can she act?

  79. Evan says:

    Give the girl a chance… You guys don’t even know her. We all know that nobody can bring it to the table like Aaliyah did but in that first picture I thought it was a picture of Aaliyah as a comparison. As long as this girl doesn’t s$$k at acting I think she can do a good job. I can’t wait for the early scenes… Those sunglasses over her eyes will remind me so much of Aaliyah… Dang… I miss Aaliyah so much. R.I.P. Baby Girl..

  80. YDC says:

    WOW! why on EARTH would they do that? Chante’s cool and all but playing Aaliyah!!?!?! who the hells gonna play Missy n Timbaland?!?! Missy n Timbaland?!? cause they were a big part of her life! ahah whos gonna play R.Kelly?!?! R.Kelly?!?! kissing Keisha… eww anyways all that aside I would personal prefer if they chose another candidate that NOBODY knows… a new actor a fresh face. Megan good, Stacy Dash those girls are already in the light and I could not imagine any of them playing Aaliyah they already have roles of “those girls” you know the hot one every guy falls in love with in the movies… Keisha’s not on her level… she’s on a different level.. not a low one … just a not so high one.

  81. kaitlin says:

    your all just hatas, just because she isnt aaliyah, or doesnt look like aaliyah, doesnt mean shes not pretty.
    i think her and aaliyah have some simalarities.
    but still u aint haftin to go all crazy b$$$h on her, just because she got the part.
    blame the people who chose her, not the actual person.
    you guys sound like some real a$s holes.
    of course shes not as pretty, or talented as aaliyah, but shes not ugly, or un-talented.
    actually if her eyes, where a little smaller, more almond shaped, and a little further off her nose, shed look exactly LIKE aaliyah.
    + some of the s$$t your saying about canadian people,is pretty fuckin prejudice.
    but whatever, keisha, u work it girl!
    and dont let haters get to you. everyones got em.

  82. NZ_kiwi_boy says:

    I am all the way in NZ, and there are people here that look like Aaliyah, sing like Aaliyah and dance like Aaliyah, But at the end of the day, OBVIOUSLY they will never BE AALIYAH. So when someone comes along, and wants to honour her memory, and what Aaliyah has meant to people worldwide (even in the SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE), what do her “fans” do? They can’t be satisfied with any attempt made to certify Aaliyahs memory on film.
    Let’s see how crazy you would get if they cancel the movie and leave it at that. As for all these options for WHO COULD PLAY HER, go on, have your say, its what these things are for, but Its quite funny how everyone LOVES to repeat themselves and the person before them, when in the end, Keisha has it. None of you can change that.
    And as for the ‘real fans’, what kind of ‘real fan’ would not want to see an aspiring artist portay our angel Aaliyah. All of this talk of ‘I WONT GO TO SEE THE MOVIE’, true fan? i think not.

    This movie is for the story and life of Aaliyah, and NOT Keisha, she is merely trying to do what most wish they could, be compared to one of the greatest.

  83. Pam says:

    Aaliyah is a legend and one one can ever take her place.

    As for the movie, I personally believe that Keisha Chante is a perfect fit for this role. She does have a SIMILAR resemblence ( no one can top Liyah) and Keisha Chante has a great voice not to mention a very mature voice for her age—> as did Aaliyah! So what if she is Canadian? That doesn’t mean anything. Keisha better just work extra damn hard because she has some BIG shoes to fill, especially if she wants to please all of Liyah’s hardcore fans. All the other woman people are suggesting are awful, they have no resmeblance and they can’t even sing well!!!

  84. Ma Speaks Da Truth says:

    Ok, let’s get some things straight to the niggaz up there who had a problem with what I said okay? Because like Aaliyah said: WE NEED A RESOLUTION!

    1. I THINK ALICIA KEYS COULD LOSE WEIGHT, AND THEY PUT MAKE UP ON HER, AND SHE COULD PASS FOR “AN AALIYAH.” SHE HAS SOME RESEMBLANCE, LIKE WHEN THEY SMILE, THE ANGELIC LOOK IN THEIR FACES, THE CHEEKBONES, AND WHEN THEY SING THEY BOTH HAVE THOSE MOTIONS THEY USE TO POINT OUT WHAT THEY’RE TRYING TO GET ACROSS IN THEIR MUSIC.

    2. I DON’T THINK MEAGAN GOOD COULD REALLY PLAY AALIYAH. I MEAN I LIKE HER AS AN ACTRESS, BUT SHE JUST SEEMS MORE “BOLD, GHETTO” THEN AALIYAH DID. SHE’S PRETTY[NO HOMO], BUT I DON’T THINK SHE COULD PULL IT OFF ALL THAT WELL.

    3. I SAID STACEY DASH COULD BE COOL FOR THE PART, BECAUSE SHE KNEW AALIYAH PERSONALLY! HELL, IT WAS ONLY NATURAL BECAUSE LIYAH WAS FINNA MARRY HER BROTHER[OR MAYBE COUSIN] DAMON DASH! AND THERE’S PICS OF STACEY AND AALIYAH TOGETHER ON SOME BEACH TOGETHER TAKING PICTURES AND THROWING UP THE “ROC” SIGN, AND TRUTH BE TOLD, SHE SHOWS JUST A TAD BIT OF FAVORITISM IN FEATURES. SHE EVEN HAD THOSE EYES, LIKE CONTACTS OR WHATEVER, AND BESIDES THAT STACEY DASH IS A VERY GOOD ACTRESS. I THINK SHE COULD PULL IT OFF BETTER THAN MEAGAN GOOD.

    4. CASSIE’S PRODUCERS AND RECORD LABEL WANTED HER TO GET THE PART OF AALIYAH. DIDDY WENT ALL OUT OF HIS WAY AND HIRED PROFFESIONAL ACTING AND DANCING COACHES[THE REALLY EXPERIENCED ONES] TO HELP COACH AND TEACH CASSIE HOW TO HAVE THE SWAG, THE SMILE, AND THE DANCE MOVES THAT AALIYAH HAD. AND TRUTH BE TOLD, CASSIE IS EYEING THE PART AND HAS SORT OF A “HATE” THING GOING ON WITH MEAGAN FOR WHAT REASON I DON’T EVEN KNOW. DIDDY ALREADY SAID HE WANTS CASSIE TO PLAY AALIYAH, FOR THE SIMPLE FACT THAT “SHE’S GOT SO MUCH RESEMBLANCE” TO HER, PUT IT IN HIS EXACT WORDS. THAT’S WHY CASSIE’S OFFICIAL GIRL VID WITH LIL WAYNE WAS NOT SO HOT, BECAUSE YOU COULD INSTANTLY SEE SHE WAS PICKIN’ UP THAT AALIYAH HANDBOOK AND READING IT. ACCORDING TO SOURCES, DIDDY IS A LITTLE PISSED BECAUSE CASSIE HAS NOT BEEN CONTACTED FOR THE ROLE.

    THAT’S THE ONLY REASON I SAID STACEY OR ALICIA COULD PASS AS CANDIDATES FOR AALIYAH; STACEY WOULD KNOW HOW TO PREPARE HER SELF FOR THE ROLE BECAUSE SHE KNEW HOW AALIYAH REALLY ACTED, SHE KNEW HOW SHE TALKED THEY CONVERSATED AND HUNG OUT SO COME ON. I SEE A LITTLE RESEMBLANCE WITH AALIYAH AND KEISHA BECAUSE OF THEIR FACES. KEISHA ALMOST HAS THAT SAME ANGELIC FACE AALIYAH HAD, BUT SHE’S JUST A A TAD BIT LIGHTER THAN AALIYAH, AND HER HAIR IS LIGHTER.

    BUT IN MY OPINION, I THINK EITHER KEISHA OR AALIYAH’S COUSIN WHO WAS AT THE FUNERAL SHOULD PLAY HER. BECAUSE BLOOD IS ACTUALLY ALOT BETTER THAN A FRIEND OR JUST SOME ACTRESS OR ENTERTAINER. I MEAN, AALIYAH’S COUSIN RESEMBLED HER SO BAD IT WAS ALMOST EERILY MORBID TO SEE HER FACE. SHE’S BEAUTIFUL JUST LIKE LILI, BUT DAMN FOR A SECOND I THOUGHT I WAS SEEIN’ A DOUBLE! I HAD TO DO A DOUBLE TAKE TO MAKE SURE THAT WAS SOMEONE ELSE! THAT’S ALL I WAS TRYNNA SAY..

  85. Mariah says:

    keisha’s is mii gurll…shes acually 1 of mii close friends..and she does look like Aaliyah in so many ways…iight so aye if you guys wanna talk shiit..talk shiit…its w.e

  86. shawna says:

    i agree with Rojannie. the only person that can be Aaliyah IS Aaliyah. But I am anticipating for this movie to hit theaters. I was and still am an Aaliyah fan and I will never get over her death.

  87. Shante' says:

    i think keisha chanta would be good for the part b/c she is a singer and dancer. but after seeing pics of lisa tucker, i think she should get the part. anybody would do jus fine as long as they act well, portray aaliyah correctly, and really dig deep into the role.
    R.I.P. AALiYAH.

  88. sasha says:

    i think some of the comments from above is crazy
    ok give keisha a break
    she can sing n dance n getn 2 learn 2 act
    who cares if shes 4rm brooklyn
    j-Lo isnt mexican n she playd salena!!!!
    i hope she do good
    make all of us proud chante’ girl!!!!!

  89. sasha says:

  90. Say Thou Name says:

    Let Keshia play the damn part & leave the girl the hell alone!!!

    Lisa Tucker? She looks more like Michelle Williams.

    Meagon Good? No. She is beautiful, but if she were in it, she could be someone else in the movie.

    Stacey Dash? No No! Her eyes are too light.

    Alicia Keys? Not at all.

    These women are all beautiful and all, but Whoever her family chooses, you must except. If they chose any of these beauties, or even India Arie, I still would watch it because I love Aaliyah & Aaliyah impersonations!

    Haters get over yourself s…

    Whoever can play the part the best is ALL THAT MATTERS! I think Keshia does look very similar to Aaliyah, & for the parts on her that don’t look much like Aaliyah, that’s why they have makeup for that!!!!!

    I’m more concerned with who’s gonna play R. Kelly…

  91. DOC says:

    Not hating on Keisha Chante…but I think they should’ve looked for someone else. Keisha is a pretty girl in all, but she doesn’t do it for me. I think they should’ve considered Kiely Williams, not only because she has more of resemblance…but she can already SING, DANCE, and ACT. As far as I know Keisha can only sing (and most people say not that well…that’s just what I heard) and I’ve seen her dance…and it’s nowhere near what Aaliyah could do. I think Kiely would not only pull it off very well, but I think she would be able to bring “Aaliyah” to life…in a sense. But I wish the best for Keisha and I hope she brings the part great justice…PeAcE…but still wish they would have had Kiely play the part. And they say that Keisha is going through extensive training for the part and I think if they got Kiely…they wouldn’t have to work SO hard…to bring that Aaliyah swag to the table…that’s all I’m saying.

  92. Itscool_93 says:

    I think keshia’s going 2 do a great j0b. at 1st, i didnt want her playing aaliyah but now i realize that she’s the best person 2 play her. who cares if shes 4rm canada or what her past was like? it dnt matter b/c she gettin paid 4 what she do best & ur not plus if u were really an aaliyah fan, you would watch the movie when it comes out, get the soundtrack, and support keshia chante, aaliyah’s family, & every1 involved with the movie. keshia has a lot of potential 2 go very far in this business and i know for a fact she will do a great job on the movie :)!!!

  93. anonymous says:

    Yo real talk, Tina isn’t deceased either so someone playing her role that doesn’t look like her is ok. Aaliyah on the other hand, Keyshia Chante doesn’t look like her at all. Just because she’s light and has long hair? She looks more like Mya. I think they should’ve went with stacy dash. Lighten her up and she looks so much like her. (look at photos and see the resemblence…you would think they were cousins) I think the producers/casting directors did a poor job in giving aaliyah justice. I don’t even think I am going to see this movie…it’s too emotional. I like remembering aaliyah 4 aaliyah. I think this is a good concept but should’ve been left alone. I don’t like the fact that people are capitalizing off her and putting her business out there. There is really no story but that she was a gorgeous girl that died way b4 her time. That whole R.Kelly Bull is none of our business and shouldn’t be put in the film. Everyone has some things in their life with a man that they want to keep their business. The only main factor besides that is her death and I don’t want to see her death all over again. I think it’s too hard on everyone she loved. Her fam and her friends. Next is going to be left eye, rick james, and so forth so on.

  94. ashley biggie shakur jackson says:

    uno wat yh i dnt reeli noe keshia chante that much buh she looks soo much like aaliyah and even doe she is not american i still think she can pull it off ive seen her songs and her swaga its kinda similar 2 aaliyah but she aint dat hood AALIYAH WAS HOOD GD LUCK KESHIAXX

  95. MsStarrStatus says:

    The fact that she is not american doesn’t matter to me. I’m from Detroit and went to the same school as Aaliyah, I graduated one year after her in ’98′ from DSA. Keisha shares a remarkable resemblence and she’s a singer. If she can do for this movie was J.Lo did for Selena then I’m all for it. Her nationality and orgin is no matter. J.Lo is puertorican and played a Mexican superstar and soooooooo many Selena fans were up in arms about that. But the truth of the matter is when u watched that movie it was as if Selena was reborn! If KC delivers the same results, I applaud her for it. It’s really personal to me, especially since I knew Aaliyah so I look forward to seeing how well she brings my girl back to life :)

  96. ashlie says:

    well first of all when ur choosing a person to act PERIOD it’s not 100% about the look of course people get a clue… it’s mainly about the person’s acting skills, can they bring this part to life, can they do this, can they do that. so jus cuz a person looks jus like them, if they s$$k at really bringing the part to life and really becoming one with the part, u will not be satisfied and that would really p$$s u off. i dont care what they look like, i want them to give me that since of Aaliyah, bring back that old vibe she used to give… fukk the appearance not being 100%, we fell in love with her personality… with her music, with her skills. and thats wut they’re looking for, and obviously Lisa Fxcker or whatever her name is did not have it all…. peace out… good luck Keisha brush them haterz off ya! u made the audition u deserve it hunn… go at ur dreams…

  97. Ronnette says:

    keep the ignorance and cussing to yourself. Keshia Chante is a good Aaliyah. She looks more like her than the one female Lisa Tucker. Who cares if she don’t look like her(she does to me). Not everyone can act and sing. Lisa Tucker probably can sing but we do not know that she can act. Yes she’s from Canada but that doesn’t give whoever is being ignorant the right to judge her. Leave Keshia alone. Obviously she was the pick that her parents and close friends picked. I also do think Stacey Dash looks a lot like Aaliyah. Mind you Stacey is over or pushing forty.

    Peace,
    Ronnette

  98. Kaori Night says:

    man shut up they picked the perfect girl at least she can sing and dance so stop hating doesnt matter where she’s from i just hope she get the job done.

  99. AALIYAH'S LOST COUUSIN says:

    no MY COUSIN COULD PLAYED SHE LOOKS JUST LIKE HER SHEDO U WANT ME TO SEND U A PIC OF HER SHE MAKES ME CRY . THAT’S THE TRUTH SHE JUST DONT LOOK LIKE HER THEY COULD HAVE HAD A CASTING CALL ALL AALIYAH’S LOL . NO ONE CAN TOUCH BABY GIRL. I MEAN IT.

  100. Queen_Daja says:

    she iz really preety who ever say she ugly they hatin

    its almost perfect

  101. Mz. iyesha says:

    MEAGANB GOOD DOESN”T LOOK s$$t LIKE AALIYAH!! whoever said that is crazy as hell! please show me the similarities cause i don’t see her. hands down, i think keisha looks more like her but she doesn’t look exactly like her, they have some similarities.. but i can’t believe someone would say that meagan looks like her!!! WOW!!!

  102. Mz. iyesha says:

    Stacey Dash does not look like aaliyah. now yall are really tripping!

  103. Mz. iyesha says:

    anonymous i feel you on the keisha chante doesn’t look like aaliyah. aaliyah has tight eyes and kc has bigger eyes. the only thing about her is that she put some long hair in her head( even though it is not black like aaliyah’s) and she has a dimple just like aaliyah. they don’t look alike or nothing reallly but as for the stacey dash thing, yall are really tripping…

  104. Silent Truth says:

    I think Keisha looks like Aaliyah for the movie. They got similar features, and in some of her pics she looks like her! I hope she plays the part well and I wish her the best success!! Rest in peace Aaliyah!!!

  105. christel says:

    where was aaliyah’s cousin at in the funeral??????? just to know to see if she look like her?????????????

  106. Silent Truth says:

    The only reason I see she said Stacey Dash is because her and LiLi were close friends..and actually i think she could pull it off. But u know now I see Keisha she does have some resemblance to her. Not alot, but there is some. She could pass for Aaliyah’s little sister! I think it’ll be good that they finally got a movie coming out for babygirl. Alot of people have negative s$$t to say about her..and don’t even know her personally, I think hopefully this movie will put to rest some of these rumors and shine light on who she really was. I don’t think Aaliyah was a bad person. She made some mistakes but that only makes her one thing..HUMAN. Aaliyah’s cousin does have alot more resemblance to her than Keisha but Aaliyah’s cousin is a shade lighter than her as well. Maybe even the same complexion as Keisha. But I think Keisha will do great and she also kind of has that same “street but sweet” image. So we shouldn’t start criticizing Keisha..just let her do the damn thing..then we can make judgement.

  107. mel says:

    i think mya shoudl play the role

  108. chania says:

    wel it doesnt matter how the girl looks who plays aaliyah.I dont care if the b$$$h looks like Flavor flav.If she’s able to connect with me,a die heart aaliyah fan.And is able to give me that reminicent feeling of her,then so be it.Im pretty sure she didnt get the part only becuz of her looksz

  109. Taeja Williams says:

    Personally, i feel that ,i mean no disrespect to keisha or anything but i just don’t think she is a good canidate to play aaliyah in the movie. I mean they DON’T LOOK ALIKE!!! Aaliyah can really sing. Keisha just can’t and i think that she tries to hard to look like Aaliyah.

  110. latassie says:

    I think none of them look like aaliyah they can dress up and put all the make up they can on they still aint gnna look like ha to be honest they need to pick some else cuz they can’t be like ha and never will

  111. iatro says:

    i agree 100% with chania

  112. Nijee says:

    I think the canadian star Keisha Chante will be good doing the role of Aaliyah.Aaliyah is a great singer and also a good actress we all miss her from the tradegy in 2001,Aaliyah Dana Haughton as we know as Aaliyah died in a plane crash coming from shouting the single in Bahamas “Rock The Boat”.While Aaliyah was doing was great for her she didnt need to be a star because she’s a star in everyones heart.

    In loving Memory of Aaliyah,Gone but never forgotten.

    1979-2001

  113. Adrian says:

    I don’t think nobody could play Aaliyah she was truly one of a kind it would be nice for her to have a movie come out but i don’t think no one could pull it off none of those girls have beauty inside or out i dont think that they should come out with a movie of her cause they would mess up all the memories that we have of her but if they do make a movie they should get ciara to play her since she wants to be her

  114. brandon says:

    i think keisha would be perfect for the Aaliyah bio movie. i know there are a lot of other female r&b singers that could play Aaliyah because of there beautifullness,but i love Aaliyah and i think she deserves someone to play her well also. keisha kind of resembles to Aaliyah, she can dance and she sing. just give the girl a chance.

  115. Dc 4 life says:

  116. anna says:

    I think Lujza Abylane was offered the Part too.Shes a theater actress.Shes sexy,sultry just like lili.They are trying everyone out .They should have an open casting call.Kesha Chante is cute but not sexy or sultry,

  117. Keyaira says:

  118. ashley says:

    let her play the freaking part. jlo wasnt mexican, texan, or well known when she was cast to play selena..and it turned out GREAT. so just give keisha a chance or go audition for the part yourself.

  119. aaliyah long lost cousin says:

    now as i was watching keshia chante’s videos she make s herself look like aaliyah. nobody hasn’t really came out and said wow keshia you look just like aaliyah she wears her hair n a bang so people can say she looks like aaliyah and dresses like her as well. so until some one comes out and says that then i’ll really see the comparisons. let one of aaliyah ‘s cousins play her.

  120. ALEXIS says:

    iTHiNK SH3 LOOK LiK3 AALiYAH A LiT BiT TH3Y COULDV3 GOT M3 TO PLAY AALiYAH DATZ MY FAV SiNG3R iKNO 3V3RYTHANG ABOUT HER iCOULDVE PLAY’D DAT ROL3 GOOD..BUT K3SHIA GOT IT AND I BELIEVE SHE’S GONNA O GOOD AALIYAH TALK PROPER iHOP3 SH3 TRY N TALK PROPER BUT GOOD LUCK

  121. Arthur says:

    I see and feel it, Ms. Chante’s got that Aaliyah vibe, lookin’ at her pics, I can sure feel it. Like Aaliyah, Ms. Chante’s got natural beauty, talent, style and grace and a golden precious smile…just like Aaliyah. i don’t know if i cna handle the movie persoanlly, but despite that, i wish Ms. Chante the very best of luck and God bless her!

  122. jenine0 says:

    hope she does good because aaliyah is a legened one of my idols and not to sound selfish but i want her to act good cause people will pay good money to see her movie

    R.I.P Aaliyah lefteye james brown 2pac biggie smalls and micheal jackson

  123. Itscool_93 says:

    I wish the best for Keshia on the movie. I hope I’m not the only 1 that feels this way but I think that the Haughtons & Blackground Records should release a statement about the biopic to confirm everything about the movie & its release. I wish that Keshia Chante will still play Aaliyah & Bill Condon will still direct the movie. I have a lot of people in mind who could play Aaliyah’s family & friends. I think Colombus Short would be great as Damon Dash, I could see Sanaa Lathan as Diane Haughton (with the aging make-up she would still look beautiful), Allen Payne as Michael Haughton, Gary LeRoi Gray as Rashad Haughton, Cuba Gooding, Jr. as Barry Hankerson, & Anika Noni Rose as Gladys Knight. But who knows, Those are the people who I think could play as Aaliyah’s family & friends. I’m gonna wait on the Haughtons & Blackground to confirm everything between now & August 25th of this year. I want this biopic to be very inspiring & epic & to show us Aaliyah the person as well as the artist/icon. God knows how much I miss Aaliyah & I wish that Aaliyah could’ve lived to be 100 & maybe a movie director could’ve said
    You Know What Aaliyah, we should do a movie about your life & for it to inspire people.” This movie is really going to inspire people, be heartfelt, & have a huge impact on not only the Black Community, Not only in the R&B/Hip-Hop Community but the whole world of Music & Movies, period.

  124. Shataiya says:

    People that are saying that she doesn’t look like Aaliyah you are absolutely out of your mind for sure. She looks exactly like her and Im sure she would do a wonderful. And you dummies that think that just because she is Canadian she shouldn’t get the part well you are really stupid. Selena was Puerto RIcan playing Selena who was Mexican and the movie was great. So Keshia I know for sure is going to do a fabulous job HATERS!!!

  125. MR RIHANNA says:

    HI KEISHA HOW IS IT GOING ON YOUR WORLD TOUR I HOPE YOU ARE HAVING FUN P.S HOPE TO SEE YOU IN CANADA SOON. P.S MR RIHANNA.

  126. Remy Marsden says:

    I PUT IT THIS WAY … THERE IS NO ONE RIGHT NOW WHO COULD 100% CAPTURE THE ESSENCE OF AALIYAH. I CAN’T EVEN AGREE THAT I’D BE HAPPY WITH MEAGAN GOOD PLAYING HER. MEAGAN HAS A VERY DIFFERENT LOOK FROM AALIYAH. U CAN OBVIOUSLY TELL THEM APART. THIS LISA TUCKER CHICK LOOKS MORE LIKE A COMBO OF JORDIN SPARKS AND ROSARIO DAWSON… PERSONALLY, I THINK KEISHA CHANTE WAS CHOSEN MORE SO DUE TO THE FACT THAT SHE’S NOT HEAVILY KNOWN… SHE GIVES THE LOOK OF A DOWN TO EARTH, FREE SPIRITED, NOBLE & GRACEFUL PERSON. HER APPEARANCE IS JUS AS INNOCENT LOOKING AND ANGELIC AS AALIYAH’S WAS. FROM SOME PICS I’VE SEEN OF KEISHA, SHE CAN GIVE THE TOMBOY APPEAL TO. I’D SAY SHE’S A PERFECT PICK.

    AN AMERICAN DOESN’T NECESSARILY HAVE TO PLAY OUR BABYGURL. FROM ARTICLES I’VE BEEN READING ON THE MOVIE, KEISHA HAS BEEN PUTTING IN A LOT OF WORK. LIKE ANGELA BASSET, JENNIFER LOPEZ, JAMIE FOX AND MANY OTHERS WHOM HAVE PORTRAYED HISTORICAL MUSICAL CHARACTERS IN FILMS AND NOT NECESSARILY LOOKING LIKE THEM, BUT STILL GIVING A CAPTIVATING PERFORMANCE. KEISHA’S BEEN DOIN HER HOMEWORK. WATCHING SOME OF AALIYAH’S VIDEOS, INTERVIEWS, HOME CLIPS, SPENDING TIME WITH FRIENDS, HER FAMILY AND PEOPLE SHE’S WORKED WITH. AS FAR AS HER ACCENT, GRANTED SHE HAS ONE… WELL HOLLYWOOD, HAS A LIL SOMETHING CALLED A DIALECT COACH… UHH, YEA AALIYAH NEEDED ONE FOR QUEEN OF THE DAMNED, REMEMBER??

    SOOOO PEEPS LETS NOT BE QUICK TO PASS JUDGMENT ON THE GURL, IM SURE KEISHA REALIZES WHAT THIS MOVIE WILL MEAN TO A LOT OF PEOPLE, AND IF DONE WELL ENOUGH, SOMETHING GOOD FOR HER CAREER. I KNOW AALIYAH’S FAMILY WOULDN’T ALLOW A RELEASE OF THIS MOVIE IF THEY WEREN’T 100% HAPPY WITH THE ACTRESS CHOSEN TO PORTRAY THEIR BABYGURL.

    HONESTLY, WE’D RATHER JUS HAVE AALIYAH HERSELF BACK INSTEAD OF HAVING A MOVIE, SO WE JUS GOTTA BE THANKFUL FOR SOMETHING. AS LONG AS WHEN I WATCH IT, I FEEL LIKE IM REALLY WATCHING HER AGAIN, I’LL BE SATISFIED ENOUGH WITH JUS THAT. WE LOVE HER, WE MISS HER AND ALL CAN NOT WAIT FOR THIS MOVIE… WHEN U DO GO SEE IT, DON’T FORGET YOUR WIPES… SOMETHING TELLS ME ITS GONNA BE A TEAR JERKER…

  127. luis says:

    SHE DONT LOOK LIKE AALIYAH

  128. Chozen says:

    I actually think that new comer Jade Ewen from the UK would be an awesome match…. Not sure if she can dance like Aaliyah though.

  129. Honeyluv2 says:

    Keshia is Ok. I hope she does a GOOD joB! or Else Their goiin RuiN it. LETS JUSS KEEP OUR FINGERS CROSSED FOR THIS FILM. IM goiiN 2 B Pissed if this Gurl Messes it Up.

    btw: Im a Hugh Aaliyah FAn! RiP BabyGurL!!

  130. Goldy says:

    In production at the moment is a documentary about Aaliyah,. Producer Pogus Caesar plans to make the film based on rare archive footage of Aaliyah’s concert at Escape club in Amsterdam in 1995, there’s also the added bonus of Aaliyah being interviewed in American hotel and soundcheck footage.

  131. Mili says:

    Me being a die hard Aaliyah fan, no she doesnt look like her. She resembles her, and has her silhouette and has many of her traits, but shes not a dead ringer for her. But also, we cant tell, we have only seen pictures of Keisha Chante, we havent seen her in person. If you dress her up like her, give her Aaliyahs hair, she could do it. Angela Basett didnt look like Tina Turner, and Jennifer Lopez wasnt Tejano or Mexican, but they captured theyre roles and did good. In my opinion, she would do way better than Ciara, Cassie, Lisa turcker, Mya, or any other people that were mentioned. She looks more like her than them. And most of them cant sing, just dance. Keisha can sing. Just give her a chance. And nobody from Notorious looked like who they were supposed to. So in all, just wait till the movie comes out. I think shell do good.

  132. Britanni P says:

    Aaliyah we missssssssssssssss u so much…No one will eva b good enough to play u in a movie or anything else… LoVe u and “I miss yoU”.

  133. J-REEL says:

    I heard the Drew Sidora was gonna play Aaliyah in the movie. I think she’s a better fit being that she has a great amount of acting and singing experience. She has a great personality, wonderful looks, and a new record deal with Slip N Slide; so you know she can sing!! Plus her name will draw popularity to the movie. I haven’t heard of Keisha Chante until this post…

  134. Tiffany says:

    I think Keisha Chante will make a good Aaliyah…I can’t wait for the movie to come out….its due in theaters soon……

  135. joe jackson says:

    who the f$$k is drew sidora. Shut up. Stop posting for yourself drew

  136. Karmen says:

    A GIRL ON YOUTUBE LOLITAprice24 is HER USER NAME, LOOKS JUST LIKE AALIYAH TO THE POINT ITS SCARY, she acts and sings please please check her out and get the word going!

  137. sheniqua says:

    Leave her alone dangg give her a chance just like you would want a chance!
    dont matter if she aint from america we take in people from around the world everyday so shut up! move on. she’s playing the part so be gone.
    don’t got nothing nice to say don’t say it.

  138. Barbara Wright says:

    Hi I am probably one of Aaliyahs biggest fans. I bought her CD’S DVD’S you name it I got it. The day she died was Tragic and noone will ever be able to be her but with that said Lisa Tucker is more than qualified for the role LISA TUCKER IS THE CLOSEST YOU WILL GET TO AALIYAH she’s american looks just like her can sing, she even has that million dollar smile she has please please please pick her for the role I beg you please I wanted to play her ro;e but i know i wouldnt be able to so this is the only person id rather see besides aaliyah herself LISA TUCKER

  139. Niecee J says:

    i think it’s great that it’s going to be a movie about Aaliyah she was talented and a very pretty girl and keisha chante looks just like her i can’t wait to see the movie

  140. Azania says:

    Meagan Good has been saying forever that she wanted to portray Aaliyah in a bio pic! That’s bull s$$t! She should be the person to play her, she’s a good actress!

    Who the f$$k is K Chante! Not knocking her, but I do NOT think she should be playing Aaliyah! f$$k that! I am so outraged at whoever the casting director is for that film! They Totally s$$k a$s.

    If Meagan Good has been saying for decades that she definitely wants to portray her – why not allow her to do her thing. Bull s$$t!

  141. Tasha says:

    this girl does not look at all like aaliyah at all i know some one who looks exactly like aalyiah. this girl does not look like at her at all. come on now can’t they do anybetter then her??

  142. Zoey says:

    I think Kiely Williams should have gotten the part, She some what resembles Aaliyah more than this Keisha girl, but yeah…

  143. shemika says:

    I think she looks like aaliyah a little,now just about everybody is saying megan good should play aaliyah I think that is wrong megan good is to much of a diva to play aaliyah. K Chante might end up suprising us all

  144. Linabee says:

    Not to be rude, I love my girl and I miss her dearly. I still mourn for her, but I think they should of gave the part to me. Most definitely!!! I hope this movie comes out right because it’s a lot of people who can look like her but can they act and sing like her too? I mean you have to….HAVE TO have it all, otherwise it’s all lame and whomevers playing the role will have to feel the negative energy for the rest of their life. Does anybody understand what I’m saying? :-( It’s people like me who wish they could get that chance.

  145. Mina says:

    I’m a big Aaliyah fan and I do think Keisha resembles her. Hopefully she can pull off the part. As for Keisha Cole, Alicia Keys, and Stacy Dash, I don’t think they would be able to handle the role of Aaliyah. Aaliyah was a dancer and she was slender and agile, these ladies are not. @ the poster who commented about Drew Sidora, she’s an actress and singer who has appeared on The Game. Skin complexion and nationality should not play a part in deciding a role. Keisha resembles Aaliyah, can sing, dance and act. That along with a well written script is all that should matter.

  146. Khaliyah says:

    who teh hell told u that lie keyshia cole isnt playin in this movie keshia chantea is they already voted on her and made the agreement

  147. Marie says:

    I don’t think Keisha Chante would be a good actor for our sweet Aaliyah because first of all, Keisha is Canadian, Her music is i guess, r&b hip hop and Aaliyah musi was more r&b jazz or soul which i like very well. Aaliyah is kind, gentle, and very nice she cares for people no matter who or where you come from. And i don’t think the 2 superstars have similarities . Keisha, i think is a Canadian trash s$$t whore, people don’t even who she is she’s not even on tv or in the public eye.

  148. leashia says:

    i think keshia is the right choice she looks just like aaliyah and she has tha same kinda personality that aaliyah had too shes gonna do a great job big ups to keshia

  149. Yolanda says:

    When is movie coming out???????????? #1 Aaliyah fan!!!

  150. Kirtina says:

    I say if shes good enough for Missy Elliott to play Aaliyah than enough said.

  151. SUFIYAN says:

    HIIIIIIIIIIII

  152. shay aka babygurl says:

    I’m not about to hat on this girl cause i don’t know who she is but if she f$$k’s this part up, she stands a lot to lose! i really think the girl from soul plane,(gizzel) looks way more like aaliyah then she does any way.
    i’ve been waiting 8 years for someone to do this movie and if someone fucks it up i’m gonna be pissed.

  153. Keisha H. says:

    Wow! It amazing me how so many people are waiting on this movie to come out yet we are all off track. Who cares if she looks like Aaliyah or not, does that really matter? All that matters, is that Aaliyah’s story is told, I’m sure that’s all her family cares about right now. Aaliyah is a one-of-a-kind, therefore, no one will ever be as good as she was, but at least give a person a chance to be as good as they can. This girl doesn’t deserve all of these nasty comments, I mean really is that necessary. We need to stop judging others and look at ourselves. It’s really not that big of a deal.

    From a true Aaliyah fan,
    Keisha H.

  154. Michelle says:

    I WANT TO BE APART OF AALIYAH MOVIE CASTING..LATELY I HAVE GOTTEN MESSGE FROM LOTS OF PEOPLE SAYING I LOOK LIKE AALIYAH,(I WAS STUCK TO AALIYAH WHEN SHE FIRST CAME OUT…THAN LAST WEEK THIS LADY SAID THAT I SHOULD TRY OUT FOR AALIYAH MOVIE,SO HERE I AM …CK MYSPACE @MICHELLETHEEARTIST.$$m….YOU EVR READS THIS,YOULL B THE JUGDE

  155. Aaaliyah4Ever says:

    Keshia Chante is a WANNABE Aaliyah. I swear she tries her hardest to look like her and be like her. Just watch her videos and look at her promo pics. I swear there is nothing original abou most of these Aritsts these days. None of them have their own identity. Keshia Chante will never be Aaliyah or close to it. There will be only one Aaliyah and one Aaliyah ONLY. But I can already see the girl’s head EXPLODING once the Aaliyah movie hits theatres. I’ve seen Keshia and met her in person…she is the most stuck up, arrogant,conceited and fake thing you will ever meet. She isn’t REAL at all. And I don’t understand why Aaliyah’s family and friends can’t see that. Out of all people they should have picked someone who is more genuine,caring,not as stuck up and conceited. Keshia needs to fall back. And I swear, I hope this Aaliyah movie never happens…I hope it FAILS….unless they find someone else to play Aaliyah. Us Aaliyah fans do not want to Keshia Chante playing the role as Aaliyah.

  156. JRILEY says:

    Seriously, I just cant wait to see the movie. PERIOD. Megan Good as Aaliyah lets be serious PLEASE. Real Aaliyah fans want someone who could just for one second bring her life to the silver screen the same way JLo did for Selena. STOP HATIN and appreciate the art that Chante is going to create

  157. BRITTANY says:

    I THINK R&B SINGER CIARA

  158. Chris says:

    STACEY DASH!?… Are you serious?!… the WOMAN.. and i mean WOMAN is 40 something years old lmao.. ofcourse to me she doesnt LOOK 40 but she damn sure looks like an adult.. this movie is probably gonna show aaliyah from when she was a teenager.. how in the HELL could stacey pull that off?.. but anyways.. from what i saw in one of keshia’s videos is that she somewhat looks like aaliyah.. (which to me doesn’t really matter) the girl doesn’t have to look exactly like aaliyah to play her in a movie.. but the other thing i saw in her video was that keshia can’t dance O.o… i dont know how they’re gonna make that work when aaliyah was known for her dances in her videos but whatever i’ll have to see.. as for keily williams of the cheetah girls.. i’ve seen her dance in a few videos and she could probably pull that part off… but acting wise.. SHE SUCKS!!.. I just recently saw stomp the yard 2 and her acting just doesnt cut it -_-.. but alicia keys? meagan good?.. and STACEY EFFIN DASH!? lol.. you people have seriously lost your minds..

  159. RH says:

    Although she is a beautiful girl who bears some resemblance to the late singer, I’ve always felt that American Idol contestant Lisa Tucker was the better choice to play Aaliyah. She definitely has the look, the physic and she can really sing.

  160. jenniDee says:

    well its too late the part has been casted let them do what they okay they are professionals how about yall get up there and do it… and to the people saying stacy dash or alicia keys should do it kill yourself now !!!!!!

  161. Richard M says:

    Watch this space – Brit director Pogus Caesar has just finished a 50min film on Aaliyah. Using rare footage from her Amsterdam concert in 1995, he intercuts it with interviews with Aaliyah and her father Michael Haughton.

    Last week a selected few were treated to a screening in downtown Birmingham, UK. I must say the film is a classy production and will do well when it hits the theatres.

  162. Bobbie says:

    First of all, I did not know who Jennifer Lopez (JLo) was when she played Selena, i did not know anything about Selena, until she got murdered. JLo, pulled it off, the first complaint was that JLo was not Mexican, she is Puerto Rican, a lot of Hispanics thought she should not have played Selena. Sometimes it’s best to step outside the box, and you get someone that is really talented enough to play the role. I just hope that Keisha Chante, does a really great job. JLo was given less time to prepare for the movie, and i don’t even like JLo, but i like the movie (Selena) because she did a great job. I just hope that they actually put parts of the real Aaliyah in the movie, performances, give Keisha a break, people are not giving her a chance. Stacy Dash, was a good friend of Aaliyah’s, i don’t think she would want to play her good friend, that would be very hard to do. Also Stacy Dash is Damon Dash cousin, not his sister. Stacy Dash is 44 years old she still looks hella good, but she could not act or move like Aaliyah now. Just go out and see the movie and support Aaliyah’s life that she had and lost at an early age, support the dream that she once had, support her memory that’s all we can do now. She has been resting in Heaven for 9 years now, and in 9 days it will be her 32nd Birthday if she had lived. Please respect the dead and ask God to Rest her soul. AMEN. Continue to pray for her mom and father and brother, who loved her unconditionally. People stop hating on the fact that she married R. Kelly. He moved on with his life in 1996 got married again, had children and it’s history, their history, she’s gone. These producers and managers are a piece of work, i will say it again, you do not have marry the young women, just because you are helping them with their career, there shoulc be a lind drawn there. Mariah Carey was young and she married that stupid mangaer, Tony Matolla, whatever his name, and she hate the day that she did marry that man. Was happier as she could be once she got away from that fool. Holding her hostage in their own home, is that crazy, are what. With is old a*s, old enough to be her dad, he was married and had i think 3 or 5 kids, just like Celin Dion, husband, he was married too and left his wife for her. These men make me sick. Anyway enough about that, just pray that the movie is a huge sucess and ask God to continue to pray for her family that is left behind, and suffering every day.

  163. Tara0101 says:

    I really think Ciara should play the part. Think about it she has height, can dance really good and a pretty face with a body. Aaliyah had the same thing. I dont want to watch somebody who cant dance or just give a good performance. Megan Good cant dance for s$$t and her lips are just to big.

  164. aaliyah fan #1 says:

    personal i believe that keisha chante isnt going to as well as we all think can’t wait to see how shes going to do. Hopefully she resembles Aaliyah as we all known her as. BEAUTIFUL TALENTED SMART & GIFTED.

  165. yeaitsme says:

    Joy Bryant or Jada Pinkett hands down to Play Aaliyah….this girl is cute but she just doesn’t exude the beauty and grace and speechless aura that Aaliyah had…Joy or Jada has way more potential hands down….I would be highly disappointed if keisha played her. Sorry but this just isnt keisha’s role…. Jada and Joy have that eloquent appeal, watch how they speak and talk in interviews, I see Aaliyah’s spirit in them way more than this girl !!! in my opinion to really capture the essence of Aaliyah, its not just about the one who most resembles, its about the way she speaks, acts, smiles and laughs….

  166. yeaitsme says:

    and if it is going to be a lot more about looks, then please have someone much more skinny and petite as well as boobless to play Aaliyah…this girl has too much boobage and I dont like it. Aaliyah was very petite and what made her so different was that she wasnt like most R&B singers with boobage and curves, she was petite and could wear the baggy manly clothes and look still so beautiful and slim in them!!!

  167. Miriam says:

    Cried the first time I saw this, cried again just now. Aali is a VERY scapiel little girl, there’s something about her that just makes you love her. Great video. Nat xox

  168. Lucia says:

    I know this is old but back in 2010 Aaliyah s fans were trying to get the family to considerLolita Price she started out on you tube but she is an actress who looks just like Aaliyah. Hair smile teeth face everything. She has the same personality and sweetness. Plus she sings. models and fashion design and she went to school for all of it. I see Aaliyah in her she just could pull that role off
