Rihanna Not Replacing Zendaya In “Aaliyah” Movie



According to an absolutely ridiculous report on the outlandish gossip website MediaTakeOut, Disney star Zendaya has been replaced by Rihanna in an upcoming biopic about late singer, Aaliyah.

An insider tells the staff of trolls, “The [Zendaya] backlash is huge. Either the network is going to have to replace her, or shut down production. Right now they’re negotiating with Rihanna to play Aaliyah. And [Rihanna’s] interested.”

This imaginary insider is clearly not in the know because production on the film hasn’t even started yet, so there is no production to shut down. And even more ridiculous is the website’s belief that one of the biggest pop stars on the planet would appear in a Lifetime movie playing another pop star.

MTO then goes on to offer their congratulations to Rih on a story they likely fabricated, writing that the Barbadian pop star is “well on her way to becoming one of the TOP ACTRESSES in the world.” Honestly, have you seen Battlefield? GTFOH.

Unlike other websites that just make up stuff for hits, we actually talk to celebrities including Zendaya who had her own response to haters who want to see her replaced in the film.

Update: A spokesperson for Lifetime tells HipHollywood exclusively that the Rihanna rumor is not true.

    They should have an open casting call. none of these women(Zendaya ,Rhiana.Zoe Zaldana ,Keshia Chante,and That ugly youtuber Lolita price look like aaliyah.Neither does B simone or Cassie.(Zendaya looks like Cassie by he way)Lisa Tucker is close ,but she is not Sexy. Sabi looks similar to her but does not give me that Aaliyah vibe.They need to go with an unknown. Open casting call.Also put this Biopic on the big screen ,not no Lifetime movie. Lifetime sucks.

Michael Rapaport Calls Himself The “MVP Of Talking Trash” Following Janet Jackson Controversy



Michael Rapaport came under fire earlier this month for slamming Janet Jackson Appreciation Day which was on Super Bowl Sunday. But now, he is speaking a slightly different tune.

On February 4th, as Janet fans used social media to praise the singer, Michael took to Twitter to do what he does best: Talk mess.

“Can anybody crying for Janet Jackson right now tell me the last Janet Jackson song that was popping,” he wrote. “Motherf*cka’s wanna make nothing something 24/7/365 & Super Bowl Sunday.”

Michael, however, is slightly backing down from his aggressive words. HipHollywood caught up with the actor during the premier of Shot In The Dark, to discuss not only his ability to talk “sh*t,” but being attacked by Black Twitter.

“I love Janet Jackson, respect Janet Jackson,” he told us exclusively. “The context of what I said is that Janet Jackson isn’t popping now like she was popping in the 80’s, 90’s. Doesn’t mean she’s not an icon.”

Rapaport, who is known to stir up on some drama with his Twitter antics, then added about being a sh*t talker: “I’m proud of the way I talk sh*t, I’m the MVP of talking trash. I can give it as good as I can take it.”
