Wendy Williams isn't making any apologies for the controversial biopic on Aaliyah Haughton.
The talk show host says she’s happy that 3.2 million people tuned in to Lifetime to watch Aaliyah: Princess Of R&B over the weekend despite the overwhelming criticism it attracted.
“I see my Aaliyah movie broke the Internet this weekend,” she said on her show this week.
“Everybody’s got an opinion. Whether you loved it or hated it, you watched it. It was the second highest rated movie on cable this year.”
She went on to praise the film for portraying such a “positive” image of the deceased singer and made no mention of the catastrophic casting choices, weak acting chops and terrible script.
“As a black woman I was proud to show that Aaliyah came from a two-parent family, which many of us don’t,” she said.
“I think when you do a movie about people’s favorite, whoever that favorite is, people are always going to have some criticism. You really can’t win for losing kind of sort of.”
