" 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 feel like a lot more could

I feel like a lot more could be done. The merch is nice and everything, but I think her music should definitely be the main priority of being available on all streaming platforms, otherwise that's a whole young generation who will miss out on Aaliyah's legendary craft.

I hope they will do more for the fans. Such as release calendars, photo books, rare image etc. I'm keeping Aaliyah's legacy alive by buying cds, magazines and other memorabilia that I can find online. I'm also working on a fansite for her.

I hope so too! 😩 They used to

I hope so too! 😩 They used to do a lot of calendars back in the early to mid 2000's, wish they would do more, but with unreleased images. And likewise! I do the same thing too! I feel like now it's a lot harder to find, since her music isn't available on streaming platforms. And wow that's awesome! We wish you the best of luck with your fansite! 😊👍🏽

I know exactly what you mean!

I know exactly what you mean! I find that especially with realistic photo edits. Some I can tell are fakes, other old edits from years ago however look so good, that they can pass for being the real thing. We have some amazing talented people in this fanbase! 🤣
