Former Disney child star Zendaya Coleman, 17, showed her haters what part of her anatomy to kiss during last night’s BET Awards. Earlier in the day, Lifetime Network announced that Zendaya would not play the role of Aaliyah in the upcoming biopic on the singer’s life. Zendaya quit after Aaliyah’s family and fans protested the fact that a biracial/mixed race actress was playing a black woman. Zendaya may not be playing Aaliyah, but a lot more people know who she is now. The TV movie has been put on hold until another actress can be found to fill the coveted role.
Singer/songwriter Lionel Richie accepted his Lifetime Achievement Award — BET’s highest honor reserved for artists who sell 100 million albums in their careers. But the honor was marred when BET misspelled Richie’s last name on national TV. How embarrassing. Hopefully someone’s head rolled for that unforgivable gaffe.
