Thats dope, people calling him corny and doing it for publicity. but there really were fans of her that was hit hard by her death. Myself being one of them. So I believe he's genuine about that letter.

Maybe a song wouldve been better tho but hey.






Aaliayh has too many classics.
I don't think he was corny for that letter, I just think the last part ("Dinner's on me") was cheesy as f**k, and should've been left out.

I think he was genuine with his gesture as well. She was my favorite female singer ever, so I feel where he's comin' from about bein' hurt....I literally got sick when I heard she passed...I got a headache and everything....

What does the "dinner on me" thing mean? I didnt really understand what it meant.


And word, I felt sick too..I was in high school when it hapened...son, I literally said "f**k class" once i heard. i went home to watch the mtv and bet tribute that whole day.....I never felt that way about a celebs death. I had that one in a million cassette :dancingcool:

how do you feel about the Aaliyah movie thats been in the works?

Aaliyah Movie To Begin Filming This Month


Warner Brothers Films will start filming a biopic based on Aaliyah’s life at the end of this month. The film will be directed by Bill Condon, the director behind the award-winning blockbuster, Dreamgirls. Canadian singer and former girlfriend of highly popular rapper Drake, Keshia Chanté (pictured below) is set to play the late singer. Chanté bares a striking resemblance to Aaliyah and has been vigorously studying every aspect of the star’s life.

She has viewed hundreds of hours of video in order to emulate Aaliyah, from her dance moves to her sweet melodic vocals for the film. Chanté is even speaking with Aaliyah’s family members, in order to give the role the proper justice and accuracy in which it is due. In a recent statement regarding her role, Chanté stated:

“Aaliyah inspired me and an entire generation. She was stunning, effortless and was capable of so many things. This is a hard undertaking, I have big shoes to fill but I am committed, determined and will train to the very end to master this role. I want Aaliyah’s fans and admirers to be proud of this film and feel like it was the best interpretation possible of our baby girl. I refuse to disappoint.”

Known to be a somewhat mysterious and private young woman, the film has been reported to share a very deep and personal side of Aaliyah; even addressing the singer’s controversial and highly debated marriage to her then 27-year-old producer and mentor, R. Kelly, whom she wed when she was only 15.

Aaliyah’s real life friends and colleagues will help with the film’s production and make appearances, including acclaimed choreographer Fatima Robinson, who worked with Aaliyah just hours before her untimely death. Robinson is also working with Chanté to help her replicate Aaliyah’s distinctive dance moves and style. Aaliyah’s longtime friends and musical family, Timbaland, Missy Elliot, and Ginuwine are also slated to contribute production and make appearances. Even the legendary and famous director, Hype Williams will aid in production and grace the screen, too.

The film is also reported to carry an impressive $80 million production budget and is set for a national release date for some time next year

and this is the girl playing her, i a.ssume this is a picture promoting the aaliyah film

I think the "dinner's on me" thing was just a joke.........that ended up bein' terrible and going horribly wrong.

As for the movie....I just hope they do her justice.....and Keisha Chante (the girl playin' her) is actually a good actress, and they didn't just cast her 'cause she somewhat resembles her.

EDIT: After readin' about how much effort she's putting into portraying her...I'm excited to see what she can do and how the film turns out......

r.i.p. to Aaliyah, always loved your stuff baby girl from Age Ain't Nothin but a Number. After hearing that album you knew ol' girl was gonna be a force. I know a lot of people who cried when she died, and I was damn near one of em.
