oh god this makes me feel so much better about this scene
When you open an exam paper and can’t even answer the first question
Aaliyah as Akasha.. in Queen of the Damned
when i think i am cool but then life is just like lol no
Whenever I danced with Aaliyah I always felt we were synchronized as women. I always wanted to make her be the best. I gave it all as if I was the artist. She was a person always true to herself, music and her art. She never played any industry games, her success came from people who loved her voice and her as a person. She was never one of the music industry folks. She had no security, no people really around until maybe when she was releasing an album, and she was always down to earth. Everyone was always pleasantly surprised by this and that’s why when she died it hit everyone so hard. I feel like for me there are moments when I really feel her presence in the studio, she loved dancing so much.

Wonderful rare image from MsFierceBaby-IG. She received this poster from her father’s friend from Blackground in 2001 after Aaliyah’s passing.
