I knew this was going to be a trainwreck. Almost anytime you make a biopic, especially on Lifetime, it’s not going to live up to the real thing. And this flick was no different.
Aaliyah, who died at the age of 22 in August 2001, was the subject of Lifetime’s Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B movie, which chronicled the celebrated star’s life. She was played by Nickelodeon actress Alexandra Shipp in the movie’s Saturday, Nov. 15 debut.
“A lot of people keep asking me, am I watching that bulls–t?” he said in one clip. “Evidently not. No way. Not Timbo.”
Calling it “that bulls–t Aaliyah movie,” he went on to add, “This is why people should never remake movies. Bulls–t happens, bulls–t happens. Now you have to deal with the consequences.”
Timbaland also targeted executive producer Wendy Williams, sharing a meme reading, “Wendy Williams, You know you f–ked up, right?”
OUCH. That’s bad. Really bad. I haven’t seen it, so I can’t judge for sure, but obviously this was a bad idea from the start. But, it’s Lifetime, what did we really expect??
