Filed under: Film Flickers

no title

She's got a HUGE task ahead of her!

And this teaser does NOT help explain a lot!

Regardless, we were pretty excited to see the first look at the Nickelodeon star Alexandra Shipp and her transformation into the late music superstar Aaliyah which Lifetime recently showed in a new teaser!

Unfortunately the teaser was only fifteen seconds!!!

The Lifetime biopic's production has been wrought with controversy as Aaliyah's family have specifically said they disapprove of the movie known as Aaliyah: Princess of R&B which will focus on the budding superstar who died in a plane crash when she was 22-years-old in 2001.

They also had to at one point recast the lead role

WHOA! Not anybody can successfully imitate Whitney Houston's voice…

But it seems that Deborah Cox isn't just anybody because she can do a DAMN good cover of The Bodyguard's famed song!

Thank gosh, too because she's set to sing for YaYa DaCosta in the upcoming Lifetime biopic about the famed singer's life!

In this totally vintage YouTube video, Deborah sings Whitney's version of I Will Always Love You and she's absolutely blown us away!

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!!
