Jennifer Hudson Hits Tampa+Diddy BackTracks About Lil Kim+News On The Aaliyah Movie

J-Hud is readying herself for the Superbowl.  She was spotted arriving in to Tampa last night: With her cute little pup.  She's set to sing the National Anthem at Sunday's big game.  Nice. The director of the upcoming Aaliyah movie Bill Condon has given some info on the movie, including Canadian R&B/pop singer Keshia Chante. According to the NY Post:

“We are going to great extremities to make this movie perfect. We have [Keisha] Chante in extensive training studying, speaking with family members, watching personal footage and in choreography training with Aaliyah’s choreographer and dear friend Fatima Robinson,” he told the New York Post. “This movie will be seamless the same way it was for Selena fans who enjoyed Jennifer Lopez.”

Interesting. More pics of Jennifer Hudson and news on Diddy's backtracking when you read the rest...

Go Jenny. And in an interesting turn of events, Diddy has pretty much backtracked on everything he previously said about Lil Kim and her portrayal in Notorious. He's on her side now and says "we" need to give her a chance:


He says he talked to Kim, heard her out, and now says "don't believe what we saw in the movie". Um, weren't you helping out with the making of the movie Diddy? The lies and publicity stunts and wack ass circus just all need to stop. Like, now. The Randomness: 1. Rap beef continues in '09-50 Cent vs. Rick Ross. SMDH. 2. So the mom of the octuplets has 6 kids at home already. And she still went through In Vitro. Word has it she's single and used a sperm donor for all 14 of her kids. I so hope they were going for a Guinness World Record or something....

[quote comment="406612"]Ummm - Im may be too young but I just dont get the aaliyah movie - I really dont. And strangely enough I would be more interested in seeing one about left eye - because from what I gathered from the documentary, she was a lil off...way off... But aaliyah? I remember learning her dances in the livingroom and ish but what spectacular things happened in her life that should be on the big screen - mind u luv her.....AND God rest her soul but I think if she were alive, her career would have went through a brandy moment - I just dont get the whole RAVE is all....[/quote] I AGREE-I think Aaliyah should be left alone in our memories. However-a Left Eye movie is SCREAMING to be made!

Jennifer Lopez was not a good

Jennifer Lopez was not a good Selena. Jennifer is Puerto Rican with a New York accent which she couldn't even cover up. Selena was a Mexicana from Texas. People who were Selena fans before her english stuff came out knew better.

this girl was a good choice

this girl was a good choice she resembles Aaliyah a lot.. i cant Diddy hes a show off ugly and trifling and anyone who signs with him on his label careers are dead!!!Diddy was right the first time about how kim was portrayed in the movie.. she was a sleazy nasty whore who was always sleeping with someones else's man.. her whole image was sex sex sex!! she was a gutter rat back in the day and everybody knows BIG did not respect kim and he wouldve never married her ugly ass that's why he didnt!! he married faith in a month and i heard BIG on the radio back in the days and he said when he saw faith he fell in love with her to him she looked a doll faith was BIGS ideal looking woman !!! light and mixed!! and how he and kim are just friends and its only a professional relationship between them 2 nothing more and he said he wasnt in love with her and has never been!!! that speaks volumes about how much respect he didnt have for her.. just because a man screws you doesnt mean he wants that's why men can cheat and have 10 women at a time its not about love its the sex they want , plus actions speak louder than words. and by the way he treated he damn sure didnt love her. plus we all know her being extremely light in complexion and mixed was a plus for him plus kim allowed BIG to treat her like ish and like a fool she put up with it.. once BIG put a ring on another woman's finger her pride should've kept her from sleeping with him but instead she kept right on messing with him and playing the mistress and side piece jump-off and whore while faith was his wife shes trashy.. remember these words by her- i used to be scared of the di*K now i throw lips to the sh*t handle it like a real b*tch heather hunter ,Janet jack-me take in the butt yaz yaz what? sorry kim your a whore.. you made yourself one when you slept with all the men you have and with BIG knowing he was somebody else's husband.. kim's rep in bk is horrible plus shes a botched plastic surgery hot mess she needs mental help.. and to sit her ass down somewhere.. she's trying to look like faith with all the skin bleaching tons of korean silky straight hair weave up in her head chopped half her nose away too big breast implants lipo to every part of her body she could get it had her eyes done to look catlike special made color contacts and sugar injections in her lips wtf is that crap!! a black women getting fake lips when were born with them naturally please , kim is a mess..

I WANT A MOVIE ABOUT TUPAC....ASAP! His life was much more interesting, complex, and controversial than Biggie and Aaliyah's. Maybe he was a little too Black and too scary for Hollywood. Sean John/Puffy Daddy/P-Shitty is WACK and PLAYED OUT!!!!!!! I'm SOOO happy to see J-Hud back on her grind.

I think the Aaliyah biopic

I think the Aaliyah biopic will be a good one if they do indeed address issues like her relationship w/R. Kelly. And I think it's good that they cast this singer/actress in the lead role who is not so known to U.S. audiences. If, say, Rihanna or Ciara had played the lead then viewers would be making too many mental comparisons. But Keisha Chante, if she does a solid acting job then the audience can get lost in the performance. The mother who had 6 kids and got pregnant with 8 more, what I want to know is, what was the source of the fertility drugs? Reputable fertility doctors, if they do in vitro, they typically only do it for clients who can't conceive, or maybe only have one child already--NOT six! Probably she's influenced by these reality shows like Jon & Kate Plus 8 and 17 Kids & Counting with that Duggar family and the woman thought she could get her own damn show. It's a real shame when she's got 6 kids that she can't support on her own as it is...

Really Though's picture

From reading everyone's

From reading everyone's comments its obvious that almost all thought Kim was a jump-off for Notorious based on the movie, and from that point of view, I can understand why Kim is so pissed. No one will ever know what transpired between Kim and BIG as a couple, they were young and he is DEAD (dead men tell no tale honey). So I think we should give her the benefit of the doubt, she needs to stop however attacking BIG's mom and Naturi, because thats just unfair. And if anyone thinks for a minute BIG loved faith more than how he did Kim, I am seriously doubting that, with the BIG/Faith relationship I see a re-occurrence of what normally tend to happen in our society "As soon as a brother finds a little success, he thinks he should have the "Browning" or the High Colour women because the dark skinned beauty isn't BEAUTIFUL enough". I think if Kim had Faith's complexion, Big would have gotten married to her. That is just my opinion.

WORRRRDDDD DIDDY'S A PUNK

WORRRRDDDD DIDDY'S A PUNK BIATCHHHH! DUDE'S RUNNING OFF AT THE MOUTH ABOUT KIM AND ALL THAT, HE HELPED MAKE THE MOVIE, AND HE HELPED IN PORTRAYING HER AS SUCH. WE ALL KNOW BIG DID NOT RESPECT KIM CUZ KIM EVEN SAID HERSELF WAY BACK THAT HE WOULD RAPE HER AND BEAT HER, YET SHE STILL LOVES HIM...THATS HER OWN PROBLEM..BUT DONT TRY TO FLIP THE SCRIPT NOW DIDDY, YOU'RE LOOKING MADDD HYPOCRITICAL. THIS IS MY THEORY: KIM MAD AT DIDDY FOR EXPLOITING HER RELATIONSHIP WITH BIG FOR MONETARY GAIN FROM THE MOVIE..WE ALL KNOW THAT THAT DRAMA IS ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS WE WATCHED THE FILM. NOW THAT SHES MAD AND THREATENING DIDDY- YES THREATENING HIM, TO EXPOSE HIM FOR BEING GAY AND IN THE CLOSET ALL THIS TIME AND HAVING SOME PART IN BIG'S DEATH, YES I SAID IT, HIM N SUGE HAD A PART I DONT CARE WHAT NO ONE SAID..DIDDY BLEW UP AFTER..THERE'S THE MOTIVE. ANYWAYS, NOW SHES BLACKMAILING HIM AND HES TRYNNA COVER ISH UP. YUP, YOU HEARD IT HEAR FIRST!

[quote comment="406624"]As

[quote comment="406624"]As for the Aaliyah movie....I loved her and all but if they fail to mention R.Kelly like Notorious failed to mention some key things...its gonna be lame! Just my opinion![/quote] the article continues: A source for the film reveals that "They will be going very deep into Aaliyah's life and will allow fans to see the most intimate side of Aaliyah's legacy." Sorces say the script for the movie film 'holds no bars' and will go as far as touching on the subject of Aaliyah's highly debated and publicized marriage and annulment to producer R. Kelly. This movie will showcase Aaliyah in a new light. Fans will be so proud of this piece, says Condon. Canadian singer Keshia Chante on playing the role, "Aaliyah inspired me and an entire generation. She was effortless and was capable of so many things. This is a hard undertaking, I have big shoes to fill but I am committed, determined and will train to the very end to master this role. I want Aaliyah's fans and admirers to be proud of this film and feel like it was the best interpretation possible of our babygirl. I refuse to disappoint." Chante's acting resume is new, only now getting the lead role in a new television series entitled "Soul" that she shot only but a few months ago up north. Condon assures us that Chante was best for the role, stating "She was born ready for this role. I knew she was the one the moment she stepped into our audition." It has also been confirmed Aaliyah's colleagues will be featured in the film. Her choreographer Fatima Robinson, Producer and friends, Timbaland, Missy Elliot, Ginuwine, even world renowed music video director Hype Williams will be apart of the film and help re-create the "Rock The Boat" video set which was the last video Aaliyah ever shot. The movie is tentative to start production end of March and is rumored to have a production budget of over 80 million dollars.

Can't wait to see J-Hud kill the National Anthem. Get 'em, Jenny! Diddy, please sat yo ass down and go kick rocks while you're at it Keyshia Chante was a great choice; she looks alot like babygirl. I liked Aaliyah, but I don't see the point in a movie about her life. The things about her no one knows, it was because she didn't want them to. She was a very private young lady and without all the salacious details/rumors (which I'm sure her fam will push to keep out of the movie for her sake), what is there left to her that we don't already know about? However, with Bill Condon directing it, it's sure to be a damn good movie, anyways.
