reported that Disney Channel's
Zendaya Coleman would be portraying the
late R&B singer in a Lifetime biopic.


In fact, the day before, Zendaya herself tweeted how excited and honored she was:

Wendy Williams that Zendaya was
replaced by Nickelodeon actress

But Zendaya explained her feelings and thoughts in this Instagram clip, basically saying "the production value wasn't there."

You can see the other two Instagram clips here as she goes on to congratulate Shipp for landing the role.

In my opinion, Zendaya - who turns 18 on September 1 - is a classy young lady and the future is certainly bright. Look for Aaliyah: Princess of R&B sometime later this year.
