Though she was only 22 when she died in a plane crash on August 25, 2001, R&B icon Aaliyah accomplished more than most people could in a century.
And now she's the subject of a new buzzed about TV biopic... The family of the deceased singer, believing that her story should be told as a major feature film, has refused to grant the producers the right to use her songs.
When her second album dropped in 1996, she debuted a new look, perhaps to quell the rumors.
But Aaliyah was part of the Breakfast Club which consisted of Jay-Z, herself, Damon Dash her soon to be fiancee and a few other people including Missy Elliot.
The plane that she was going to be riding in was equipped with all of their equipment from the video which the crew didn't want to leave behind in the Bahamas. The pilot that was flying their plane wasn't even licensed to drive an aircraft and had Cocaine and alcohol in his system. Aaliyah was the youngest one on the plane to have passed on.
Aaliyah Dana Haughton (January 16, 1979 - August 25, 2001), better known as Aaliyah (pronounced /ÉËliËÉ/), was an American R&B and pop singer and actress. Kelly, Aaliyah became famous during the mid-1990s with several hit records from the songwriting/production team of Missy Elliott and Timbaland.
Her and Jay were always good friends and nothing more.
And there were even people close to her, after she passed who said Jay always liked Aaliyah but she only wanted to remain friends with him.
