Zendaya To Play Aaliyah? Twitter Upset Over Casting Choice

The internet doesn’t seem very happy with the decision to cast Zendaya as Aaliyah in the new Lifetime movie about the Princess of R&B.

Zendaya broke the news today on Twitter saying that Aaliyah has been a huge influence during her life.

Zendaya, a 17-year-old Disney star and former Dancing With The Stars cast member, has an uphill battle ahead of her. Several people sounded off on Twitter this morning saying that she was a terrible choice to play Aaliyah.

Other people are mad that an Aaliyah movie is being made at all. Why doesn’t Lifetime make a movie based on TLC? Or someone like Whitney Houston?

In addition to proving that she can play Aaliyah, Zendaya will also have to prove that she can sing like her. The Disney star will reportedly be recording four songs for the new movie.
