Can you believe it's been 10 years since the untimely and tragic death of singer Aaliyah Dana Haughton?  Me, neither.  The rising R&B singer/movie star was killed in a plane crash on August 25, 2001 in the Bahamas after her 'Rock the Boat' music video shoot.  See, you have to understand I was and still am an Aaliyah fan.  I still put my 'One in a Million' CD on and just let it ride.  Aaliyah was my girl.  I know I wasn't the only one who had to find a skirt with the splits on both sides like she was wearing in the 'Are You That Somebody' video..LOL!  Chick was the bomb.  So you can imagine my pleasant surprise when I heard BET was doing a tribute to the fallen star.  I realize BET hasn't een on their game lately with the tributes, but I'm still holding out hope for this one.
BET made the announcement via Twitter that they will be paying tribute to the fallen star on the official 10 year anniversay of her death, August 25th.  I will definitely have my DVR set.  Here is what they said:
bet awards 300x141 BET To Honor Aaliyah With Tribute Special
W/ the 10th anniv of Aaliyah's passing approaching. we're airing Romeo Must Die today at 8P/7C.  Stay tuned for a tribute special next month.
Miss you, Baby Girl!
