I used to be a HUGE Aaliyah fan back in the day. I distinctively remember the day we all found out that she passed away, too. The chart topper died in a tragic plane accident off the coast of The Bahamas shortly after she filmed her latest music video for “Rock the Boat.” We were all in shock. We couldn’t believe that someone as beautiful and talented (and not to forget kind and sweet!) like Aaliyah would die so fast. After all, she was just 21-years-old. She had so much more to give to this world.
With that being said, there’s no doubt that fans still think about her to this very day. The girl could easily have been a legend. Some of her hits were absolute classics. And that’s why a lot of people are pretty shocked that reality television star Kim Kardashian chose to dress up as the late singer for Halloween. As a matter of fact, a lot of people also think that the costume was done in poor taste too (especially since Kim looks nothing like Aaliyah). And that’s not just because the singer died in a plane crash, either. Here’s everything you need to know.
