Timbaland & Missy React To Aaliyah Movie & Tim Throws Major Shade

Posted November 15, 2014


As to be expected the premiere of Lifetime’s ‘Aaliyah: Princess of R&B’ was greeted with much criticism from Aaliyah‘s fans and friends alike. The movie which chronicled mostly the development and relationship between Aaliyah and R. Kelly, was obviously the talk of Saturday evening via social media. A quick peep at social media and you can see many fans did not like the outcome.

Timbaland took to social media to share his thoughts on the film and shortly after Missy Elliott also chimed in.


Missy then responded to Tim’s post, and Tim didn’t stop there, he began re-posting fan made meme’s mocking the film

A quick search on social media will pull up tons of mixed reactions from fans, but we captured just a few of the responses posted to the films executive producer Wendy Williams‘ Facebook page after she shared a few posts promoting the film on Saturday night. Peep those in the gallery below.

Tim wasn’t the only one who had some thoughts about the film, the films former star Zendaya who bailed out of the movie due to the major scrutiny, disorganization  and not having the families blessing according to her shared one word on her thoughts of the final project.


As we previously told you Aaliyah’s uncle Barry Hankerson is reortedly working on his own theater movie on Aaliyah so fans may get the film they feel the singer deserves. This rumor has not been confirmed so only time will tell how this turns out.


As far as our thoughts on the movie, we went in hoping for the best but expecting mediocre..however we must say although not the best, the film is far from bad. We give the film a D on casting, a C overall for story and character development.

I think the biggest downside is that Aaliyah’s music was not allowed to be used which is the biggest connection her fans have to her, so without her music the connection is not there.

If her music was used and her stellar dance moves in a few scenes perhaps the film could have translated better. We must also note although there is a lot of hate being thrown, Alexandra Shipp did do a pretty good job despite the movies shortcomings.
