Celebrity biopics have not been going over too well these past few months. The motion picture from Lifetime for the late Aaliyah was a total disaster. And their effort honoring the late Whitney Houston was only slightly better. So the pending N.W.A biopic that is slated to hit the big screen later this year had fans on the fence a bit. However, an official trailer for the project dropped a few days ago that changed the dynamic completely.

The news of a movie in honor of late and beloved R&B singer Aaliyah should spark happiness amongst her supporters. However, the announcement is doing the exact opposite. Earlier this week it was unveiled that a decision had been made on who would take on the role of the diva and all hell broke loose. Disney star Zendaya Coleman was awarded the part and Lifetime is the network that will be heading the project. They have tentatively dubbed the endeavor Aaliyah: Princess of R&B. Much to the public’s dismay, Coleman beat out 11 plus hopefuls including singer/hostess Keshia Chanté and actress Lolita Price who bears a seriously uncanny resemblance to Ms. Haughton. Fans feel Coleman is too young and too green for the role and have reportedly gone so far as to start a petition to give her the boot.
