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According to an absolutely ridiculous report on the outlandish gossip website MediaTakeOut, Disney star Zendaya has been replaced by Rihanna in an upcoming biopic about late singer, Aaliyah.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

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



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.
