    After The Lifetime Network announced that Zendaya will star as Aaliyah in an upcoming biopic, social media went into a frenzy. Many fans of the late R&B singer complained that the disney star not only doesn’t have the same skin complexion, but the two look nothing alike.

    Surprised by the backlash, Zendaya responded to the critics via twitter stating:

    “She’s been an inspiration and influence in my whole career, her talent still shines brighter then ever, all i wanna do is honor her”

    She later added, “I’m just a 17 year old girl who got cast to play one of her biggest inspirations #positive”

    More controvery surrounding the making of this movie was created after it was revealed that the family of Aaliyah was never consulted on the film. Zendaya is set to record four of Aaliyah’s songs for the film, but the family is attempting to stop Lifetime from using any of the singer’s music.

    What do you think? Should anyone touch this knowing the family is against it?

  7. Kanye West and Common Join Forces to raise Job Rate in Chicago

    Kanye West and Common have decided to collaborate in an effort to help their native city of Chicago. The city has been filled with crime and violence that seems to have increased more and more over recent years. One of the issues that Chi Town has faced is the unemployment rate specifically for young black males between the ages of 16 to 24. A 2014 January report revealed that 92% of this demographic is currently unemployed.

    After hearing about this major issue, Kanye and Common have joined forces by deciding to combine their two charities, Common Ground Foundation and Donda’s House. The two organizations will team up to help rapper Rhymefest host an annual music festival which will help promote job creation for the youth of Chicago. Common had this to say about the decision to help create jobs:

    “Any time I hear of innocent people getting shot and killed and young people with guns, it hurts. I felt I have to do more than just write songs about Chicago. Obviously, one of the biggest reasons our kids are going through what they’re going through is because of poverty. I was doing an event in the neighborhood and there were some kids from Englewood and I said, ‘Man, what do y’all really need? What’s gonna stop this?” And they were like, ‘We need money. Man, if we could work.’ They want a chance.”

    The two charity organizations plan to launch at least 1,000 jobs this summer and add more and more jobs on a yearly basis.
