Producer Timbaland stopped by New York’s The Breakfast Club on Wednesday and was more than honest about how he felt about Lifetime’s recent biopic, Aaliyah: The Princess of R&B.
“I looked at my DM … The girl [Alexandra Shipp] texted me. I wrote her back and said ‘you should do research before you enter into something. It’s nothing against you, I just felt like whoever suggested that decision wasn’t a wise decision.'”
Timbaland then admitted that he actually didn’t watch the made for television film. “I’m kind of like the donkey because I gave it attention [on social media]. I felt like I knew what they were gonna say the next morning. For them [Lifetime] business is business. I never watched it so people were telling me and I’m like, ‘that didn’t happen. That didn’t happen.'”
During the movie, which premiered on Saturday November 15, Timbo suggested in an Instagram video that he had no intention on watching the film.
