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 .
Watch it below.
Do you think Teyana was a better fit for the role?
