It wasn't a good choice...
ET Online reports that while on the red carpet for the BET Awards, Zendaya Coleman said that she left Lifetime's Aaliyah biopic because it wasn't a good choice for her.
She said: "After actually starting the project, I feel like there were certain things that were missing. And things that weren't 100 percent taken care of. And I feel like, if I'm going to portray one of my idols, and someone I feel so important and strongly about, it has to be done right, and it has to be done 120 percent. So I just felt like it wasn't there, so it just wasn't a good choice for me."
Lifetime announced that she was dropping out on Twitter yesterday. The film is currently on hold as production has ceased. It's unknown when or if production will start up again.
