Not Necessarily a Video Vixen, but Video Dancer to Play Aaliyah in Movie

Via whatspoppin.net:

For About 1-2 years there’s been talk of a movie about Aaliyah’s life. At first Meagan Good was supposed to play her role but now Destiny Lightsy steps into the spotlight. Destiny Lightsy is the background dancer of Ciara and has been the leading lady in Usher’s “Yeah” video. Now rumours say that she’s supposed to play Aaliyah in the “upcoming” movie. She even dressed up like Aaliyah in the “We need a resolution” video with the exact black nails, red lips, hair cut, dress etc. Those rumours are true and Destiny Lightsy is going to play Aaliyah.

Destiny Lightsy seems like a great candidate for the Aaliyah role, unsure of Meagan Goode’s dancing skills, but this girl can dance her ass off. I am a big Aaliyah fan and would hate for her to be played by someone who could not dance. Remember Destiny in Chris Brown’s “Run It” video:More photos also from whatspoppin.net

A blast from the past….I used to LOVE this video, I think I still know all the dances, LOL!

Hopefully, Destiny’s acting skills are as good as her dancing skills. Definitely looking forward to seeing this movie. Aaliyah RIP.

    I DON’T F*CKIN APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT THIS HO IS GOING TO PLAY AALIYAH OUT OF ALL THE PEOPLE IN THE FREAKIN WORLD! HOW DARE HER FAMILY HAVE THE AUDACITY TO EVEN CONSIDER ALLOWING THIS A*S SHAKIN TWO DOLLA GETTIN SLOPPY B*TCH TO EVEN CROSS THROUGH THEIR MINDS FOR EVEN ONE SOLITERY MOMENT! AALIYAH HAD CLASS, STYLE, BEAUTY, AND INTELECT UNREACHABLE BY ANY B*TCH! AS A STRONG AALIYAH FAN THAT WILL NEVER FORGET HER ~ I AM EXTREMELY OFFENDED! EXTREMELY! AND EVERYONE ELSE SHOULD BE ESPECIALLY HER FAMILY!

    HELL NAW!! NOT TO BE MEAN, CUZ THIS GIRL IS PRETTY, BUT SHE’S 2 THICK TO PLAY AALIYAH, AND A LITTLE 2 DARK. SHE’S A DECENT LOOKING WOMAN, BUT SHE’S A LOT THICKER IN SIZE THAN AALIYAH. THEY NEED TO FIND SOMEONE SIMILAR IN PHYSICAL SHAPE TO AALIYAH. I HONESTLY WISH THEY’D ASK ALICIA KEYS OR AALIYAH’S BEST FRIEND STACEY DASH TO PLAY THE ROLE. ESPECIALLY ALICIA KEYS BECAUSE SHE HAS AALIYAH’S SWAG, AND I DEFINITELY THINK SHE COULD PULL AALIYAH’S STYLE OFF. AND STACEY DASH TOO, CAUSE SHE HAS SOME OF AALIYAH’S FEATURES, AND HAS AN ADVANTAGE BECAUSE SHE KNEW AALIYAH PERSONALLY. BUT ALICIA KEYS COULD PULL IT OFF. SHE CAN SING, ACT, AND DOES A LITTLE DANCING. AND SHE HAS MORE OF AALIYAH’S FEATURES TOO. IF SHE’D JUST DYE HER HAIR DARKER, AND PUT A LITTLE MAKE UP ON, I DEFINITELY THINK SHE’D HAVE IT DOWN. PPL THINK CASSIE SHOULD PLAY HER; HELL NAW 2 HER 2!! CASSIE HAS BEEN LABELED AN “INDUSTRY HO” AND HAS HAD SO MANY RUMORS SPREAD ABOUT HER..ALL OF THEM NEGATIVE. AALIYAH NEVER HAD A BAD COMMENT POSTED UP ABOUT HER, AND SHE DID SO WELL HERE ON EARTH IT WOULD BE A TRUE SIGN OF DISRESPECT TO HAVE CASSIE PLAYING HER. THAT WOULD PROBABLY MAKE AALIYAH’S FAMILY UPSET, AND PEOPLE IN THE INDUSTRY WHO KNEW HER PERSONALLY UPSET. ALSO HER FANS WOULDN’T BE 2 HAPPY EITHER. IT’S BETWEEN ALICIA KEYS OR STACEY DASH. THIS GIRL NAMED DESTINY OR WHATEVER IS TOO THICK, AND AIN’T LOOKIN’ THAT RIGHT IN THESE PICS. SHE IS PRETTY THO. BUT I VOTE ALICA KEYS OR STACEY FOR THE ROLE…YOU’D HAVE TO ADMIT IF YOU LOOK AT THEIR PERSONALITIES; THAT THEY COULD PULL THE ROLE OFF WELL. THEY PICKIN’ THE WRONG PEOPLE TO PLAY MY HOMIE AALIYAH. I DON’T LIKE THAT.

  • real spit chick

    i think ciara should do it! they may not look alike but make up does wonders. she dances like aaliyah, her swag is definitely like hers, she idolizes her, she sings pretty good, i don’t think this destiny chick is cute enough, no offense but i think that should be something left up to the fans cuz if they mess up that movie, (smh) i hate to see what happens to them. they need to be real picky about who they let play that role for real.

    I think they should let the family pick. Like Aaliyah’s brother Reshaud should have a nation wide casting call. from east coast to west coast. Cause she don’t look nothing like Aaliyah and so what if she can dance.Picks some one with all around talent.Like my baby sister. She sings and dances and acts An looks like aaliyah with out make up .you can find her on blackplanet.com/Choices280
