Yesterday some of you may have missed Missy Elliot’s response to VH1 about the late R&B singer, Aaliyah, due to the AMA’s, but we didn’t. The conversation was sparked by VH1, who has been on an Aaliyah campaign ever since the “Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B” biopic film aired on Lifetime two weekends ago. (Check Vh1’s twitter, they were not amused…it’s palm trees over there chile!)
Like Vh1, many artists including Elliot, were not moved by the film. Elliot’s long time musical partner, and mega producer Timbaland dragged the film through the mud for the entire two hours it was on. He and Elliot were very close with Aaliyah and worked side by side with her on Aaliyah’s sophomore album, “One in a Million.”
Yesterday, Vh1 played “Behind the Music: Aaliyah” and tweeted Missy Elliot a quote she said from the doc-series. This prompted Elliot to tweet back some heartfelt and honest tweets about Aaliyah (see above).
But always and forever, RIP to the Beautiful and Talented Aaliyah Dana Haughton, the princess of R&B!
