Well this comes as no surprise !
In the past Teyana Taylor has expressed her admiration for the late singer Aaliyah. She even dressed up as the singer for Halloween last year, so when auditions rolled around for the Aaliyah biopic it was only right that she audition for the part. Once Teyana found out that Aaliyah’s family had nothing to do with the film she no longer had an interest in taking on the role and up until now it was a secret.
Today Teyana’s friend Tyrone let the cat out of the bag and although Zendaya has snagged the role and many think she’s a great fit, Tyrone believes that nobody deserves the role more than Teyana does. He even said so on Instagram where he posted Teyana’s three-part audition tape.
I know teyana is gona be mad at me for posting her audition clips but i honestly feel no one deserves this role more then her . She embraces Aaliyah dancing , acting and singing. (Which I’ll be posting all 3parts) but unfortunately @teyanataylor heard that Aaliyah’s family isn’t involved & she no longer wanted to be apart of the film. Here’s part 1 The dancing .

Michelle Williams has finally dropped the highly anticipated visual to her latest single Say Yes, which features former Destiny Child members Kelly Rowland and Beyonce. The song has an upbeat tempo and sounds remotely similar to that of an African tune. The visual features an angelic like Beyonce dressed in white and a brown skin Kelly who was only recorded from the chest up. Which probably means she didn’t want us to see her growing belly, during that time anyway.
Michelle brought out a community of folks who praise danced and dressed in African inspired clothing.

Can you imagine how afraid Sanaa Lathan was when she found out that a crazed, stalking fan was dead asleep inside of her laundry room? Yes honey, Shawn Caples was asked to leave the actresses residence when her contractors found him knocked out sleep inside of her wash room. When asked who he was he lied to the workers and said he was Sanaa’s husband but they somehow convinced him to evacuate the premises. Chile but that’s not even the tea!
Later that day, the stalker showed up again. Sanaa who obviously had, had enough at that point screamed:
Get the fu-k outta here!
And when he wouldn’t leave she called the cops.
You would think that after all of that, Shawn would get the memo. Chile no. (more…)
