Teddy Riley, Hannon Lane, and Timbaland’s brother, Sebastian, chime in on Aaliyah biopic’s casting choices

August 14, 2014 3

Recently, I was hit up by Music Producer/Songwriter/Vocalist, CherishMie, about a petition that she had created to be casted as Missy Elliot for the Aaliyah Biopic.  I, personally, didn’t know what to think of it at first, until I checked it out and noticed an uncanny resemblance to Missy Elliot.  Last time I saw CherishMie, she was actually chilling on stage during Missy’s performance at a festival in Virginia Beach, VA called ShaggFest.  So with that being said, I was thinking… “Why would it be so difficult to cast Cherish for the part, especially due to affiliation.”  You’d assume Missy would have a say in who would represent her, especially on tv, film, etc.  In return, I signed the petition to show support.  Then, I took to my social media and inquired what the people felt about it, people were quite upset, just as BET and VIBE has portrayed in recent stories.  

(Below:  CherishMie’s Godfather, Teddy Riley, showed his support by reposting her photo dressed as Missy Elliot along with link to her petition on Instagram)
