Watch: R. Kelly Slams Wendy Williams’ ‘Aaliyah: Princess of R&B’ Biopic

Yesterday saw the ‘Pied Piper of R&B’ R. Kelly ring in his 48th birthday.

In big balla fashion, the Grammy winner hosted a ‘who’s who’ affair of a birthday party in Atlanta, with some of the scene’s biggest socialites in attendance (see: T.I., Keri Hilson, Phaedra Parks, and more).  But, before the party got started, Kelly took to a Big Tigger-hosted V-103 Atlanta segment to share his thoughts on the now-infamous, Wendy Williams’ produced ‘Aaliyah: Princess of R&B’ biopic (aired on Lifetime).

As if the Lifetime-lent Aaliyah biopic that aired Saturday night didn’t ruffle enough feathers by itself, producer Wendy Williams’ response to the backlash didn’t exactly help.

“Everybody’s got an opinion.  Whether you loved or hated it, you watched [because] it was the second highest rated movie on all of cable this year so far.”

At the time Wendy made the statements, no receipts had surfaced to substantiate her claim.  This has since changed.  Tuck in below to see how the movie not only a win for Wendy, but for Lifetime as well as it dominated television, but Nielsen Twitter ratings as well:

Wendy Williams Defends Aaliyah Biopic / Blasts Backlash

wendy-williams-aaliyah-biopic-thatgrapejuice

The net was set ablaze over the weekend following the airing of Lifetime‘s critically panned Aaliyah biopic.

A volcano of opinions populated social media after the airing of ‘Aaliyah: Princess Of R&B’, with the lava of anger still spilling over today.

Notable in her silence, though, was the project’s executive producer Wendy Williams.

The talk show maven turned media mogul had been promoting the movie in earnest and guaranteed that her enlisting (which took place in the advanced stage of the production process) would ensure that the story would be told “right”.

Needless to say, the masses have made clear that they disapprove.

Wisely choosing to address the matter on her show today (see: ratings), Williams defended the flick and cited its major ratings as the true indicator of its success.

See what she had to say below…
