ZENDAYA COLEMAN: Drops Out of Aaliyah Bio-Pic

Zendaya Coleman explained at Sunday's BET Awards why she dropped out of the Aaliyah bio-pic. 

Initially TMZ said it was because of negative reaction from the late singer's family. But the 17-year-old Disney star said she was concerned about the quality of the Lifetime movie. On the red carpet, she told MTV News, 'I just felt the project wasn’t 100 percent there. I feel [that] production wise everything just felt a little rushed."

She added, "It’s someone that I honor and I respect so much, it has to be 128 percent, especially for all her fans, including myself. I didn’t feel like it was all the way there, so I didn’t want to do that. And when the time comes when it’s done right and it’s 100 percent, by all means, I will be the first person there ready to go."

Production is currently on hold, though it's unclear if they plan to cease production on the movie altogether. Shooting was scheduled to begin this summer.

How did my passion for music get started? Well, I would have to say it all started with my Pops. His passion for music became his career at the age of 19 when he began workin as a radio host in the Latin industry, and he's been in Broadcasting ever since. He always made his passion for music a major part of his and our lives. Growing up, my dad always told us that music will always take you to a better place even when you're down. Although he meant that about Latin music I felt the same about Hip hop and R&B, and realized that he was absolutely right. My love and passion for music became more interesting for me as I learned more about my dad's career and his entertainment business. I then knew that I would someday take after him and do the same in the Hip Hop industry. After graduating from Northview high school in Covina and moving to Fresno, I decided to step up start my new life with a new career.. so I Applied for an Internship here @ B95. After gaining my experience, I then landed a spot on the ladies lounge Sun-Thur 10-midnight playing your favorite slow jams and taking your dedications. After 2 Years with that successful show I was offered to take over the entire night show. Shortly thereafter, I was moved to the morning shift and have been on the Juice Crew Morning Show ever since. You can also catch me from 10am-2pm everyday. So my advice to all you out there having second thoughts on life, remember.. In order to be successful, you must embrace your talents! I know I did.
