The Lifetime network movie about the life and tragic death of entertainer Aaliyah Haughton officially has an air date this November.
"Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B," starring Alexandra Shipp, will make its two-hour premiere on Lifetime Networks Saturday, Nov. 15, at 8pm ET. The television movie executive produced by Howard Braunstein, Debra Martin Chase and Wendy Williams, is based on the best selling book Aaliyah: More Than a Woman.
After Aaliyah's family publicly spoke out against the small screen film, actress Zendaya Coleman backed out of starring in it. Her replacement, Shipp, 23, is an actress and singer who starred in Nickelodeon's show "House of Anubis" along with other programs such as "Victorious," "Switched At Birth" and "Awkward." While she is gearing up to star in Nick Cannon's "Drumline 2: A New Beat," it seems the entertainer has spent little time on social media since news broke that she would star in the film. more >>
