Monie Love Slams Aaliyah Biopic / Bills It “Unethical”

Published: Monday 16th Jun 2014 by David



Minutes after actress Zendaya Coleman announced that she was play late singer Aaliyah in the forthcoming ‘Lifetime’ biopic based on her life, British rapper Monie Love has slammed the project, taking aim at the “unethical” motives behind its conception.

Her take on the project below…

Set to be led by the singer’s uncle Barry Hankerson, the movie will see Aaliyah‘s story told through the eyes of the ‘Blackground Records’ executive, oft slammed for the part he allegedly played in the singer’s illegal union with singer R.Kelly and the underhanded tactics he reportedly used to keep ‘Andre’ singer JoJo at the ailing label.

Now, after facing claims that he launched the movie to fund the company following JoJo’s departure, he now finds a new critic in Love, who weighed in with…

    That Berry is shady as it gets. I won’t support this film if the family is not in it. It’s strange that the family wants nothing to do with this film or new album. Sad.

  5. black June 16, 2014

    THANK GOD I WASN’T THE ONLY ONE THINKING THIS..yes she was light skin ..but this chick looks nothing like her.

    • Tasha June 16, 2014

      Beautiful avi 🙂

    • Blacksista June 17, 2014

      I am glad they didn’t cast some non black to play her cause you know Hollywood would have tried it.

  6. Lana Fan June 16, 2014

    Ain’t nobody checking for this dead h**!!

    • IStanForYourFav June 16, 2014

      Quit being disrespectful. Your fav wants to be dead.

  7. janet. June 16, 2014

    You people are dumb. Acting is more than LOOKING like someone. Werent yall complaining about Lil Mama too?

    • IStanForYourFav June 16, 2014

      Your name is my second fav janet. album. The first is The Velvet Rope. I wanted red hair so bad, but who lets a 6 year old get red hair? Lol. I will forever love that era.

  8. Tasha June 16, 2014

    It feels like they just picked the next pretty mixed looking girl to play her. Not much thought at all.

    • janet. June 16, 2014

      Oh so they just grabbed her off of the street?I guess she didnt audition with hundreds of other girls including Keshia Chante. Stfu and wait for the damn movie.

      • Tasha June 16, 2014

        Zendaya is that you?

      • Kayla June 16, 2014

        Right, so ignorant… Looking to criticize

  9. Momma Skorpion June 16, 2014

    Who is this dead B****h Aaliyah and ask me why I should care?? When we have ACTUAL alive artists with TALENT aka Rihanna -sales don’t lie babies

    • Selenator June 16, 2014

      Flop attempt at trolling

    • Fine Ass Lou June 16, 2014

      TALENT and RIHANNA are complete opposites. Sales don’t lie and neither does her live performances.

    • IStanForYourFav June 16, 2014

      Chill out ‘monicastan.’ Your trolling has no impact on anyone’s heart.

    • Warriornika June 16, 2014

      B**** TRY AGAIN Troll!

    • Julian June 17, 2014

      LOL at you trying to pull off a comparison between AALIYAH and Rihanna! Worlds apart. WORLDS.

  10. Selenator June 16, 2014

    People would be more supportive of the film if they didnt hire the latest Janet Jackson clone to play the role of Aaliyah. Especially if Aaliyah’s family is not supporting it.

    • monicastan June 16, 2014

      selena gold yet?

      • Selenator June 16, 2014

        All of Selena’s albums clocked gold excluding one, you tried. @ me when Janet Jackson’s latest incarnation passes 100k. Id shade this Monica person you stan for but idk who that is.

  11. I cant June 16, 2014

    Not you young folks asking who Monnie Love is. Lmao do some research before saying dumb s*** like “who?” God you young folks act like NO one came before y’all

    • Still I Rise! June 16, 2014

      She’s a 1 hit wonder that’s why they don’t know who she is. I’m with them. WHO?

  12. A.K.A. more like D.O.A. June 16, 2014

    Dead On Arrival. Jennifer Lopez’s Album Expected to Sell Less Than Half of Mariah Carey’s Debut. J. Ho’s “A.K.A.” is expected to move only 25,000-30,000 units during first week

    • Selenator June 16, 2014

      SCREAMING!!! This washed up flop sold less then Ciara Basic Instinct, Iggy Azalea’s The New Classic, and even Zendaya’s self-titled flop! How many times will she blow Pitbull for features until she understands her time is up? Lol! Shakira would never!

      • GaGa’s Tampon June 17, 2014

        Sigh the album is not even out

      • Julian June 17, 2014

        Get your damn facts straight, the album is only out today in the US.
        I wonder where those obscure predictions always come from because they’re based on NOTHING!
        And even if J.Lo sells only 25k, so what, believe me she’s unbothered.

  13. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) June 16, 2014

    A Monica fan will not come for me. Nope, not on this planet and not in this life time.

    • monicastan June 16, 2014

      no one came for mariahs cd lol

      • IStanForYourFav June 16, 2014

        116,400k #TheShadeWritesItself

  14. Still I Rise! June 16, 2014

    This Monie Love bish is a washed up has been 1 hit wonder who’s always on twitter crying and complaining about what the more successful artists are doing. I can’t take anything she says serious because she’s bitter about everything. Everyday she find something to complain about in the industry. One would think she had more than 1 hit song the way she’s carrying on. HATIN A** 1 HIT WONDER.

  15. bleako June 16, 2014

    I’m excited, but I do feel for her family.

    Its clear they don’t want to there to be any sort of film/biopic about baby girl.

    Lets just hope VH1 keep it classy and tell the full true story.


  16. Sisqo (king of R&B) June 16, 2014

    No!! Aaliyah was black.. Meagan Good or Zoe Saldana would be perfect

    • Anne June 16, 2014

      Either of those two would be horrible in my opinion. Zoe is 35, how can she play someone who died in their early 20s? Meagan does not have the right look at all and she is also too old, 32 to be exact.

  17. Brian310 June 16, 2014

    I agree with Moni, I won’t be supporting this film or any cd unless the family gives it the ok. Other Aaliyah fans should follow suit, her uncle is a disgrace to that family.

  18. Jane June 16, 2014

    Does it really matter? This ‘biopic’ will be on television and to be specific on the ratchetness channel, VH1! I could understand people getting upset if this was to hit the big screen or even HBO (respectable).

  19. XX June 16, 2014

    As much as I loved Aaliyah, I don’t want to see a movie about her. Little is known about her personal life to make me think a movie would be good. She was never really the one for scandals.

    By the way, am I the only who sings back in fourth, to spell her name.

  20. ozzy June 16, 2014

    THREE Aaliyah articles in one day? TGJ, you’re really milking this, aren’t you? Anyways, I’ll probably watch it regardless if the family does or doesn’t support it,*i’m sorry* but really hope this Zendaya girl can do it right. Hopefully this film will open younger audiences to the life and music of Aaliyah. Love her to death. No pun intended.

  21. eric June 16, 2014

    Who is this Zendaya girl? And Barry is the one who tried to push the Drake/Aaliyah album in spite of Aaliyah’s mother and brother and many fans saying no. Aaliyah fans, let’s unite and shut this mess down like we did Drake!! Barry needs to be stopped.

  22. Anne June 16, 2014

    I feel sorry for the family but I won’t pretend like I’m not going to watch this film for their sakes. I’m too curious and I’ve been waiting for her story to be portrayed. I’m just afraid that the story will not be fully told and that the actress they picked won’t be right for the role. I hope I’m wrong.

  23. truth (The PinkShit will.surely FLOP!! Just like PissAndFLOPtion honey) June 16, 2014

    Y they got a white girl playn her???

  24. sleazy June 16, 2014

    Her family isn’t ready really? After hundreds of years? Why tho? Smh I don’t feel like they being towards HER fans they been waiting forever for this and even when its her music they don’t want to release it smh aaliyah LOVED her fans that’s a fact why they being the way they are

    • MC!! June 17, 2014

      The fans of Aaliyah are the least of their worries!! Her mom has lost her CHILD you don’t get it?? Her CHILD!! Her brother lost his little sister who didn’t even get a chance to grow she died young!! It’s not about you!! It’s the fact that Aaliyah is dead and she can’t speak on what she wants!

  25. sleazy June 16, 2014

    Zendaya can sing , dance and looks gorgeous and she is mixed so bye! Aaliyah movie has to be the worst ever No one is ever satisfied its just terrible I’ll be watching cus of Zendaya but I’m looking forward to Whitneys no one can be this bitter her fans makes you dare I say this Hate her smh

  26. MC!! June 17, 2014

    Maybe her family don’t want other people making money from a passed loved one.
