2014 BET Awards

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.
