Aaliyah Tribute In Fader Magazine

Aaliyah has been chosen for the cover of Fader Magazine’s Annual Icon Issue.  Here is an excerpt for the interviews with peers and loved ones:

Missy Elliott: “We was gonna save the world. We was gonna change music every chance we got. We was gonna always be family. Forever.”
Jomo Hankerson: “I think a lot of that mysteriousness they talk about was just what she was. She seemed like she came here already grown up, from the beginning.”

Mark Ronson: “If it wasn’t for Aaliyah being the face and voice of [Missy Elliott and Timbaland’s] sound they might have never got to where they did. They were presenting their sort of brilliant but challenging breakthrough music through this beautiful young girl who could sing it perfectly.”

Kidada Jones: “I think about her all the time … Anytime she’s brought up or her music comes on the radio, it’s sweet, but it definitely sounds like she found a niche before it was here. If you listen to her music it’s so relevant today, but we had it so long ago.

Damon Dash: “She was already a fashion icon, she was getting into movies, she had already planted that seed. If she was alive today she would be so relevant. I see little bits of her everywhere I look, in a lot of artists.”

  1. Aaliyah Haughton was a true princess she gave us alot over the years she was here, Aaliyah really loves each and every one of us and even though its been 7 years since her tragic death her soul still lives on. She was a kind and true sweet hearted soul of god. she had a nice personality a sweet smile her music cheered me up on days i had my head hung low, Now that Aaliyah is not present on earth anymore in body its up to us to keep our memories of Aaliyah alive. I truly thank Missy Elliot, Timbaland, and the wonderful Haughton’s family for posting this magazines for the fans of Aaliyah. Her spirit will live on in every step we take, every tear we cry, every breath we take every non forgotten birthday Aaliyah missed, and every 22 years Aaliyah has been with us thank you Baby Girl.
