" I don't mess around when it comes to my work – it's important. That's when I will definitely put someone in their place. "
“ If God gave you the talent, you should go for it. But don’t think it’s going to be easy. It’s hard! ”
" Being in this business, I accept that there are positives and negatives but having a strong family base and a belief in God enables me to weather the storms. ”
“ It’s hard to say what I want my legacy to be when I’m long gone. ”
“ That’s why I work every day. Ev-er-y day. I want to knock people out. ”
“ There is always a bit of pressure to do a good album – to do good work, period. ”
“ I’m a total performer. ”
“ People are gonna look up to me because I’m young, black, and female. ”
" I want longevity. I don't want to get out there and run myself ragged and spread myself thin. "
" I think it's important to take a break, you know, from the public eye for a while, and give people a chance to miss you. "
" I see myself as sexy. If you are comfortable with it, it can be very classy and appealing. "
" I began to work the stage and get the audience into it. I also learned how to have fun out there. It is something I will never forget."
" There are certain things I want to keep to me. I don’t discuss my private life. "
" When a fan comes up to you and says I love your music, there’s nothing better than that."
" You have to love what you do to want to do it everyday. "
" I’m the interpreter. I’m the one who takes your words and brings them to life. I was trained to sing and dance and laugh, and that’s what I want to do. "
" I don’t think about my previous success. I’m happy that the work I’ve done has been very successful. "
" It’s in how you carry yourself. I’ve always been a very mature person, and I’ve always known what I wanted. And I go after it no matter what. "
" I want people to remember me as a full on entertainer and a good person. "
" All I can do is leave it in God’s hands and hope that my fans feel where I’m coming from. "
" I stay true to myself and my style, and I am always pushing myself to be aware of that and be original."
" I’m a survivor and I can handle anything. I’m very confident about that. "
" I don't want to abandon one work for the other, and I don't think I need to sacrifice anything to put my all into either one of them."

I think it will make a great collectible. I hope they release more of Aaliyah with looks inspired by her music videos.

Most definitely! I wasn't

Most definitely! I wasn't keen on it at first, as they seem to only be more focussed on Aaliyah's first era, in comparison to her other era's like OIAM, RMD and her Aaliyah era. I would definiely love to see a look from Are You That Somebody? or We Need A Resolution, including some red carpet events like from the 2000 VMA's where Aaliyah is wearing her iconic Roberto Cavalli zebra print dress. 😊

The Aaliyah Funko pop seems

The Aaliyah Funko pop seems to be selling out fast. A while back I've seen it on Walmart, Target and Gamestop websites now they are not even showing up on their sites. Hottopic is sold out too. If I would've known it was going to be this popular, I would've preordered one.

Honestly, I'm not surprised!

Honestly, I'm not surprised! Anything with Aaliyah's name on it, whether the workmanship is of a great quality or not sells because of her name alone. I think the Funko Pop is the one thing where it shows more creativity and relevance, as well as a highly prized collectors item which will be worth something later on down the line. I ended up buying two! lol One to keep in the box, and one without it. A similar thing happened to myself when I wanted to order an official Aaliyah cap, and when I went to checkout, it was all sold out 😩 I was pretty bummed about that, as the design looked so dope 😍 Hopefully they do more! But with that being said...I just want her music to be sorted first as that should be a main priority 💯

Yes, they need to get her

Yes, they need to get her music on streaming apps. If they are not able to do full albums, then at least just her top singles. I know actually what you mean about merchandise being out of stock. That's happened to me many times on Ebay with the rarest of Aaliyah magazines.

Agreed! I feel like they

Agreed! I feel like they definitely need to do something this year as it marks 20 years since Aaliyah's passing. A 20th anniversary special LP edition would be very fitting! And yeah I hate when that happens on Ebay, especially when they over price it 🤦🏽‍♀️ It's like they think us fans are made of money! 😂
