Today marks what would have been Aaliyah’s 34th birthday.
I remember as a pre-teen I loved everything about Aailyah. She was one of my favorite artists then and still is today. I used to mimic her hairstyles (especially the one from “Are You That Somebody”) and I recorded all her music videos to learn the choreography. I wanted to be her. If the term “stan” would have been around then, I definitely would have been an Aaliyah stan.
