Not to outshine Kim Kardashian’s front-page nudes, but Lifetime’s Aaliyah biopic is about to break the Internet (FYI, the hashtag is #AaliyahMovie). Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B, the small-screen scandal that had late singer Aaliyah Dana Haughton’sfamily and fans spazzing, is finally here and this writer has yet to find someone excited about it.

Executive produced by gab queen Wendy Williams, the biopic documents everything we already knew about Baby Girl but head over to VIBE and check out 15 more thoughts after two painful rounds of Lifetime’s Aaliyah biopic.
