We’ll meet again soon.
A few of Aaliyah’s favorite things:
Writer: Stephen King. I don’t know how he thinks of the things he thinks of. His books really scare me… and I like that!
Band: Queen. Their songs are just spectacular. My favorite is Bohemian Rhapsody.
Place to hang out: The mall. I could shop all day long. My favorite shop is Nike Town. I’m a Nike addict and Nike Town is a huge store with nothing but Nike.
Actor: Denzel Washington. I really enjoyed his performance in Malcolm X, and ever since then I’ve admired his talent.
Jewelry: I love silver. I only wear silver - no gold. My favorite piece of jewelry is my silver chain with a Tasmanian Devil medallion. I wear it everywhere.
Pet: I have a four-month-old pug named Tour. He’s adorable. I get to take him on tour with me.
Holiday: Martin Luther King Day. He was a very strong black leader and I have a lot of respect for him. His birthday was the day before mine, so he was a Capricorn too!
Sport to watch: Basketball. I’m a Bulls fan and I love their colors - black, red, and white. I get a lot of flak from my parents because they’re Knicks fans.
Movie: Silence of the Lambs. I love horror movies. Anthony Hopkins was so good.
Subject in school: Math. Right now I’m doing algebra in school and it comes to me very easily.
