Good afternoon! So I felt the need to do a post on Aaliyah today because I just realized about fifteen minutes ago that today was her birthday. I knew it was in January but I wasn’t sure what day it was in January. She is still so missed. I cannot believe this year will make seventeen years since she passed. I have seen so many Aaliyah memes, photos, collages, videos, quotes, etc. So many young people who were barely born when she passed love her just as much as the people who grew up during her era. It’s like her and Tupac never really passed because different generations have come to love both.
The funny thing is so many people online (celebrities and the everyday chicks) try to copy Aaliyah but they always fail. Sure, some have been able to pull off her look but there was only ONE Aaliyah. I haven’t seen any artists in the last seventeen years that has come close to what she has done. I will admit that her and Ciara are similar in style in Ciara’s early days. However, I sometimes wonder if Aaliyah was still here would she be wearing rainbow colored weave and bleaching her skin. I wonder would she be twerking. I wonder if she’d be one of those “coons” on Twitter that continue to get exposed. LOL. I wonder would the blogs be desperate to spill her tea like they do with everyone else. Who knows. I hate that she passed, but maybe it’s a good thing that she didn’t live through this unhinged, retarded society that we currently live in. Aaliyah was definitely from the era of REAL. A lot of people today are from the era of FAKE and MENTALLY UNSTABLE. LOL!
Well, in honor of Aaliyah, I decided to put together a slideshow of some of my favorite photos of her. I also wanted to share a playlist of my favorite album from her, One In A Million! I enjoy her other albums as well, but it’s something about that One In A Million album. The album was R&B, Hip Hop, and Funk perfection! It was different. I also love the album pictures. She looked like she was in a sexy, motorcycle club. LOL.
What are some of your favorite Aaliyah songs, videos, interviews, and etc.? Feel free to leave your comments and as always please like, subscribe, and share. Thank you and have a wonderful day!
