Zendaya Coleman (code name: That Girl From The Disney Channel People Born Before 1992 Never Talked About Before Last Month) offered an explanation behind her decision to exit Lifetime’s Aaliyah biopic after it was revealed on Friday that Alexandra Shipp had been tapped to play the late R&B singer.
“Let me just explain something,” Coleman said in the first video posted to her Instagram account. “The reason why I chose not to do the Aaliyah movie had nothing to do with the haters, or people telling me that I couldn’t do it, I wasn’t talented enough or I wasn’t black enough. It had absolutely nothing to do with that. The main reasons were that the production value wasn’t there, there were complications with the music rights, and I just felt like it wasn’t being handled delicately considering the situation.”
Wendy Williams linked up with Sherri Shepherd, Danielle Brooks, Lil Jon, Bow Wow, Erica Mena and AARP (no really, check the background) to celebrate her 50th birthday in New York City last night. Under normal circumstances I would take a moment to reflect in detail about the time someone in the comments section said that Sherri has the stance of a pitbull terrier wearing heels but I’m pressed for time today.
Also spotted inside the birthday bash: Dule Hill, Rochelle Aytes, Joe and a host of other people I’m not going to bother downloading pictures of, soooo yeah.
