Zendaya Sets The Record Straight! Clarifies Why She Dropped Out Of The Aaliyah Biopic, But Is Her Reason Surprising?

Zendaya received a lot of flack when she made the decision to take on the role of Aaliyah for her Lifetime biopic.

It wasn't long after her casting announcement she decided to step down from the role.

Now that she isn't playing Aaliyah anymore people are STILL hounding her for her decisions! Can't a girl catch a break?

Judging by the Disney Channel's candid explanation of why she dropped out, she's tired of all the speculation and we don't blame her!

Plus, she gives a shoutout to Alexandra Shipp, who's set to play the princess of R&B! No hard feelings there!

Listen to her explanation (above)!

Divalicious! Deborah Cox Will Sing For Yaya DaCosta In The Whitney Houston Biopic!

Filed under: Music MinuteWhitney Houston

deborah cox to lend vocals to whitney houston biopic12

Wow, we're SO happy to hear the director of the Whitney Houston biopic, Angela Bassett, decided to enlist the AH-mazing Deborah Cox to provide vocals for the actress Yaya DaCosta!! With Deborah's impressive background in Broadway, we know she's more than capable to bring Whitney's greatest hits to life!

When Whitney tragically passed a few years ago, we and all of her many fans were devastated. While we can't bring our beloved songstress back, at least we can honor her AH-mazing voice on the small screen!

While Dacosta has the looks down pat, Cox will bring credibility to the film with her powerful set of lungs.

To refresh y'all on Deborah's background, she starred in the a few Broadway hits like Aida and is responsible for the mega popular track, Nobody's Supposed to Be Here!! Like the late Whitney herself, girl can sing!

We can't wait to see the biopic and we think Deborah will do an AH-mazing job!!

The Bobby Brown For Whitney Houston's Lifetime Biopic Is HERE! See The First Picture!

whitney houston lifetime biopic bobby brown

Whitney Houston's Lifetime biopic is really coming together!! And so quickly, we might add!

Following the casting announcement AND first look at America's Next Top Model's Yaya DaCosta as singing legend Whitney, it's only appropriate to finally reveal who will be playing Bobby Brown!

It's what everyone has been waiting for after news of the biopic was broadcasted for all to hear!

The network revealed in a new photo of Yaya posing next to her co-star and on-screen hubby, Arlen Escarpata!

The 33-year-old actor looks a little too innocent to portray the New Edition musician, but we have a feeling his acting chops will make up for it!

Arlen has appeared in a number of TV shows, so there's no doubt he has the experience for the role!

The biopic, currently titled Whitney Houston, has just started filming with Angela Bassett in the director's chair.

Even though Whitney's family isn't fully backing this project, we're sure Yaya and Angela will do their best to do Whitney right.

Guess the casting directors are going to have to Try Again!

Disney star Zendaya Coleman was all set to play the part of the late singer Aaliyah for a Lifetime biopic, but not anymore.

After Aaliyah’s family made their opinions public about Zendaya representing their baby girl known, the 17-year-old actress decided that she didn’t want to be involved anymore. And there were reportedly some other factors as well, though those haven’t been revealed.

So, Lifetime has paused production, and innerestingly, they aren’t sure if the show will go on at all anymore!
