R.I.P. BABY GIRL: Celebs Reflect On Aaliyah's 10 Year Anniversary
It's been 10 years since Aaliyah lost her life way too soon. The songbird was the voice for teens and young women everywhere--with a style to match. When I was in high school, Aaliyah influenced everything the girls did--from the tomboy with a feminine appeal look, to the "I'm coming into my own" but "I'm still leaving much to the imagination" red carpet and photo shoot looks, to the music that every sweet girl dealing with powerful love, mess-ups, and break ups could relate to.
Check out how celebs say Aaliyah affected their lives inside...
