“It’s definitely fun to explore that side of yourself, the side of yourself that you keep hidden in your everyday life because you know you’re not supposed to go there, unless it’s absolutely necessary. And yeah, it’s fun just to be that mean, evil person. See how far you can really go. I like it” - Aaliyah (On playing Queen Akasha from ‘Queen of The Damned’)
I’ll never get over the fact that she was dancing inside the engine of a motorcycle with a custom made Chanel catsuit debuting her ponytail wit da hump while rocking her mans pendant while being the one driving the motorcycle while also being inside the fucking headlight
Okay, so I didn’t want to post this yet, but I really really REALLY wanna show you guys what I’ve been working on for months. AND since it’s Aaliyah’s birthday… might as well post it lol. So SURPRISE!!! I’ve been working on an animation of Aaliyah! This was supposed to be for the 20th anniversary of her album ‘One In A Million’ in August, but let me tell you something… animating is hard, and it takes a lot of hard work. Even with my hand cramping right now, it’s all worth it. And that’s what Aaliyah taught me. My passion is art, and even though the work is painful, or it makes me bone-tired, it’s all worth it because just seeing something that I created come to life, it’s the best feeling in the world honestly. So, yeah it’s not fully finished yet, but I am planning to finish it by the end of this month or next month. Just wanted to show you guys what I was working on, and that none of this would be possible if it wasn’t for Babygirl and her music. I’ve been listening to her music for over 20 years, since I was little (and her music video, ‘One In A Million’ was the first video I’ve seen of hers on MTV lol), and she was the only artist I really admired, and her music helped me find what I truly love doing, and I thought an animation would be a perfect tribute for me to pay my respects and thank her for inspiring me and millions of other fans out there.
Happy Birthday, Miss Aaliyah!! Love you and miss you always!!!! 😘💕
