Lifetime’s Aaliyah biopic has been marred by controversy, and it’s about to get even stranger. The network has revealed the first trailer for the Aaliyah biopic Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B set to the sounds of Iggy Azalea. The Aussie rapper’s song “Goddess” plays between scenes from the made-for-TV movie, executive produced by Wendy Williams.

The 30-second spot gives us a first glimpse of Alexandra Shipp in the role of the late singer.

If you’re wondering why Aaliyah’s music wasn’t used in the trailer, that’s because Lifetime wasn’t allowed to license her catalog.

Zendaya Coleman was originally cast in the role of Aaliyah, but dropped out after backlash.

Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B premieres Saturday, November 15, at 8 p.m. Get a first look below.

The ratings news for Viola Davis’ new ABC drama “How to Get Away with Murder” just keep getting better.

The show debuted last week with 14 million viewers, topping its lead-in “Scandal,” which had its highest rated debut with 11 million viewers.

Now that the dust has settled and 3-day DVR ratings have been tallied as well, “HTGAWM” has even more to smile about with news of a record breaking 6 million more viewers added on- for a total of 20 million viewers.

The really kick-ass part- the part that actually keeps shows on the air, is that it garnered a 5.8 rating amongst the coveted 18-49 crowd, the crowd advertisers actually care about.

The show’s record breaking and history making DVR ratings make the show an almost shoe-in for early renewal, assuring ABC another bonafide hit via Shondaland Productions.

Congratulations to Viola Davis who in my opinion sold this show on the strength of her talent alone- proving once again that there is an audience for shows helmed by classically beautiful black women.


TV One’s “Hollywood Divas” is set to air next month and with its debut just around the corner the network has released several previews of what fans can expect.
As previously reported, the network’s latest foray into reality TV is brought to us via Todd Tucker, who presently stars alongside wife Kandi Burruss on the “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
“Hollywood Divas” stars Elise Neal (The Hughley’s), Lisa Wu (RHOA), Countess Vaughn (The Parkers), Golden Brooks (Girlfriends), Paula Jai Parker (The Wayans Brothers) and aims to give the public a glimpse into what the industry is really like when you are a black actress.

According to Parker, black actresses never really make it no matter what they have accomplished because work is generally scarce. “You can be in a critically acclaimed hit movie today and find yourself unemployed for the next two years,” says Paula. “Even an Oscar or an Oscar nomination doesn’t guarantee you will find employment again.”

Because of that, Paula reportedly began work on her own production and called in several actresses to help her- and there you have the plot for “Hollywood Divas.” But, because this is a reality show and drama sells, things quickly go south because of the egos and well… I think we all know the rest.

Check out the preview clips below and look for “Hollywood Divas” to debut on TV One October 8 at 10pm.

Their still “On the Run Tour” Jay Z and Beyoncé brought their show back to life at the 3rd Annual Global Citizen Festival in Central Park on Saturday.

During her husband’s set, which aired live on MSNBC, Mrs. Carter made a surprise appearance to perform “Holy Grail.” As the crowd of 60,000 put their lighters in the air, the superstar couple dueted on “Young Forever.”

“Peace and love,” said Jay as he exited the stage with his arm around his wife.

The festival, whose goal is to end extreme poverty by 2030, also featured performances from No Doubt, The Roots, and Alicia Keys, who performed her new single “We Are Here.”
