    Zendaya did the right thing by backing out of the aaliyah movie.she was getting too much fallout from aaliyah’s family who are against this movie being made.Zendaya is such a classy &respectable artist , and I don’t feel this movie will reflect her portraying aaliyah in a positive light.better projects will come along for her.I think this lifetime biopic will fail and Zendaya won’t catch the heat for it.
