LIFETIME WORKS ON AALIYAH BIOPIC WITHOUT FAMILY INPUT

This week press announced that an Aaliyah biopic is set to be released by 'Lifetime Television' tentatively entitled “Aaliyah: Princess of R&B”. "The film is based on the bestseller “Aaliyah: More Than a Woman” by former Time magazine music editor Christopher Farley." Aaliyah will be played by Disney's Zendaya Coleman. Unfortunately I don't have much backgroud on who that is really but I'm sure she is all the rave with all Disney watching people. lol. Unfortunately the family hasn't taken to this news well. They claim they had no input on the project which I think is disrespectful as happy as I am that they will be retelling this story. The family actually feels that Aaliyah should be getting a major motion picture where they would be able to contribute. I totally aggree on that as well.

I know it still makes me smile when I see Aaliyah's pictures and performances. She was such a beautiful girl and I wondered yesterday in fact if Zendaya Coleman could even do her any justice. After watching a clip of an interview Zendaya did with '106 & Park', I have to say I loved her spirit. I'm not saying the story line, or the movie will be a smash because we all always get left with the question: is it ever really perfect but I definitely feel she could capture that sweetness, and sincerity that Aaliyah had.

Here is what Aaliyah's cousin 'Jomo Hankerson' had to say about the news of Lifetime releasing this television movie:

"Aaliyah was more than a singer, she was -and is still – an American music icon whose legacy continues to live on and influence today’s music culture, just as Ray Charles, Notorious B.I.G., Selena and Johnny Cash. Considering the magnitude of her fans’ affection alone, she deserves to have a tribute much more grand than a television network debut that won’t even consider the perspectives of those who were closest to Aaliyah."

Disregarding the families and dishonoring the legacies of celebrated figures who have passed on, big networks want to exploit their stories for a buck. We’re here to make it clear that it’s not okay! Lifetime Television is trying to dictate the status of our heroes, our heroines and – in this case – our beloved Aaliyah. We implore everyone to call Lifetime Television, send emails and bombard social media so they know we demand respect for our cultural icons. We will not sit idly by while they misrepresent and reap profits from our luminaries. There is more at stake than the public could imagine.

I hate that the family was not involved even though I love the idea of a movie finally depicting this amazing souls life. SMH. Didn't I also hear this week that Lifetime is involved in another fued with a movie about Whitney Houston being released without family input. What's the deal? Do you agree that Lifetime should move forward with this movie, witout the family input?

God Bless You!

KELLY'S BELLY!!

I think it's adorable that Kelly Rowland is preggers. Kelly Rowland just recently married in Costa Rica to manager Tim Witherspoon and what a pleasant surprise now she's having a baby. Sometimes friends, and people you know make the best partners. Don't sleep on this ladies. "Yesterday Kelly showed off her growing baby bump for the first time on Instagram. The mom-to-be looked to be meditating peacefully in a sports bra and leggings." How long you been hiding this pregnancy Kelly?!!!Anyway this will be Kelly and Tim's first child, and I have to say I'm super excited for Kelly.

God Bless You'll

ANGIE JUMPS SHIP FOR POWER 105.1

I never would have guessed that after a huge run that Angie Martinez would ever quit Hot 97.1, BUT, yesterday she did. At first I thought maybe she's quitting to be a stay at home mom, or to look into other avenues, well this morning it's being reported that Angie is moving to 105.1. OUCH EBRO!!!

Here is what thejasminebrand.com reported:

"Speculation began IMMEDIATELY about her next venture. Thursday morning, just 24 hours after her departure, even more radio news was shared. Angie will stay on radio, but at a competitive radio station, Power 105. The Breakfast Club hosts (DJ Envy, Angela Yee and Charlamagne the God) confirmed the news and said that she’d be moving to the afternoon slot (similar to Hot 97) from 2 p.m. — 6 p.m. Since Power 105 is syndicated, Angie will be heard in New York and The Beat in Miami."

Isn't it funny how 'The Breakfast Club' announced this, knowing these two stations have been rivaling for so long it's kind of weird that Angie would jump ship and join that team. Shade, Shade, Shade!!!

I guess Angie went with where the money was at. Power move or no??

God Bless!!

50 CENT CLAIMS HE DIDN'T STEAL PHOTO...........

It's been a while since I posted, but a lot has been happening you guys. Unfortunately after a little boy was stabbed to death in Brooklyn I grew a little melancholy. I have a soft spot for kids, and it hurt me when I felt helpless that a mentally unstable person was on the loose after our kids. Thankfully he was caught later on that week, and little Prince Joshua “P.J.” Avitto was laid to rest. We can only hope for the best for their families and their healing.

In recent news, let's move on to my boy 50 Cent. You guys know I've been a fan of 50 Cent for years, and I support anything he does. 50 Cent wears many different hats, including having his own website, well, as of late he was supposedly sued over some art work he published on his site. "A photographer named Jennifer Stetson filed a federal lawsuit against the 38-year-old rapper/business man last year. She accused him of using a copyrighted photograph she created entitled “Claudia” for his log Thisis50.com. Steston claimed she reached out to the rapper and informed him of his infringement but he refused to remove the picture."

50 claims he did not steal the artwork and that the photographer did not own any copyright for this photo. He said he received consent from a third party to publish the photo.

I have to admit I've been a culprit of snagging photos I need for research on line. Not certain what will happen in this case but I know not having copywright on the said photo doesn't make the case a strong one.

Hope it all works out 50.

IS IT EVER OK TO EVER STRAP YOUR BABY ON YOUR WEDDING DRESS??

Is it ever ok to drag your baby down a church floor? I don't care if it's your wedding day, birthday, it's just not ok. Not according to Tennessee's bride Shona Carter Brooks. Brooks wanted to delight in the marriage ceremony with her baby so badly she strapped her baby to her dress as she walked down the aisle. YIKERS. I remember when pictures first hit the internet about this, I promise I thought it was a joke. On top of that because Shona and Pastor husband are saved they protected their actions by saying they were covered by the blood, and so the baby was perfectly fine. SMH. Nuts.

Check out what Shona had to say to the negative reaction:

People questioning what we do, commenting all negative, and just doing the most. We good though we covered by the Blood which never loose its power. So to the media, radio, news, and whomever else wanting to talk about what WE do here you go: Media Media I see how it works regardless the situation or purpose people gone have something negative to say! The answer is we do what we want when we want long as Jesus on our side everything worked out fine and gone continue to be fine. Our 1 month old was awake and well secured on my train. Most important while yall got ya feelings in us we had our hearts in Christ which covers all!! So keep ya mouths running for it was just that Exclusive and Epic enough we made top blog way from small town Ripley, TN and the social media doing what they do, TALK!!!!

This is wrong on so many levels!!!! NecoleBitchie

WAKA JUMPS THE BROOM

Congrats to newly married rapper Waka Flocka Flame and his boo Tammy Rivera!!!

I can't lie, as ghetto as this family is rumored to be you can't help but love the connection Waka Flaka and his mom Deb Antney clearly have. If you have also been watching 'Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta' then you have probably seen Waka and Tammy his then fiance, and now wife discuss cheating, there marriage plans, and just plain cute behavior. For a tough guy Waka seems to love him some Tammy.

Deb confirmed the marriage with RumorFix, saying she’s not even mad they did it their own way.

“I was selfish. I wanted to be a part of it. They got a marriage license about two weeks ago without me knowing it.[...][Waka] kept his word. He said that he was going to marry her and he did it on his terms. It was very cute to me.

I’m happy. He’s very responsible.

Awwww...

Necolebitchie; Rumorfix God Bless!!
