Keshia Chante Speaks Out Regarding Aaliyah Role: This Project Just Wasn’t For Me!

106 & Park’s Keshia Chante finally broke her silence on Wednesday morning regarding not being cast as Aaliyah in Lifetime’s forthcoming biopic.

“I just want to say Thank You all for the outpouring of love & support. You guys went so hard!! It’s really touching to know that you root for me! Words can’t even express. But this particular project just wasn’t for me,” Chante wrote on Instagram. 

The host continued, “After learning more about the situation & how the Haughton family truly felt, I just didn’t feel like it was right. But at the end of the day, this is just one, of what will be many movies on Babygirl’s life. So maybe one day, if it’s the right circumstance, timing & I get the blessing, I’ll choose to be a part of something. Until then, keep #Aaliyah‘s legacy alive & positive! And support my girl Zendaya who is just living out her dreams & working hard to do so! xo KC.”

Although Chante was reportedly in the running to star in the movie, it was later announced that 17-year-old, Zendaya would play Aaliyah in the film, which will chronicle the late singer’s rise to fame and tragic death. The Disney star faced some hefty backlash after being tapped to play the singer, but Zendaya is not worried about the haters and critics.

“I auditioned like anyone else and I worked really hard because it’s someone I love and I admire and if you want it done right, you have to do it yourself,” Zendaya told HH exclusively.  “She also wanted people to understand that no matter what, this movie will be made and it’s all about honoring Aaliyah’s legacy. “This movie is going to be made one way or another and I think it should be made in the best possible way to show her beauty.”

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

Published

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
