As many times as Kanye’s said it, it’s no secret that former Roc-A-Fella mogul Damon Dash is a known a$$hole. Still there are many who probably hoped they’d see a softer side of Dame on last night’s BET tribute to the late great Aaliyah “One In A Million.”
Unfortunately it didn’t really happen that way. BOSSIP live tweeted the show and we were particularly struck by a moment when Dame tells the cameras he didn’t want to fly to Australia to see Aaliyah while she was filming “Queen of the Damned” because “he didn’t want to show how open he was” and he was filming “Paid in Full” and it would have seemed irresponsible. He did end up flying to L.A. to see her when she flew there for Matrix auditions though. Other folks on our timeline were upset that Dame preferred to call her his “homie” instead of girlfriend and significant other. While he admitted he didn’t expect to have “those kind of feelings” for her, for some folks it just wasn’t enough. Also when it came time to discuss the plane crash, Dame claimed he told her not to take the plane after she 2-wayed him that she wasn’t feeling the small craft. Meanwhile, for years many have blamed him as the reason she wanted to depart the Bahamas early.
How do you feel about it, is Dame a wankster for still trying to appear cool and blameless after all these years or is it saying something that he participated in the special at all???
