18-Year-Old Aaliyah Denies Being Married After R. Kelly Rumors


Now, see, you could be fly in that. (car horn honking)
No, no. With a long list of upcoming premiers to dress for, we spent the day shopping in Manhattan with 18 year old, Aaliyah. First stop, Saks. (“Back and Forth”, by Aaliyah) ♪ Back, back, back and forth ♪ Aaliyah is a veteran of the music scene. At 14, her premier solo project, “Age Ain’t Nothing But A Number”, achieved platinum status with hits, “Back and Forth”, and (“At Your Best, You Are Love”, by Aaliyah) “At Your Best, You Are Love”, which catapulted her to the top of the Miss R&B Diva List. Thus, paving the way for her recently released, double platinum album, “One in a Million”. In today’s music industry, where image is everything, Aaliyah mixes her sex appeal with a playful tomboy twist, creating a look that’s all her own. I watched a lot of the fashion shows, a lot of the runway models, and see what’s the next thing happening, and then intertwine that with what I’m doing. Image goes hand in hand with the music, and that’s how people identify you, you know? They separate you knowing your music and your style and your image, so, that’s why it takes me awhile to put things together, especially if I’m doing a dressy thing, rather than a sporty thing, because what you see here is really me, the baggy jeans, and skull caps, and everything. So, when I’m doing a dressy thing, I’ve got to still remain in my image, so it takes me awhile to put something really good together that still looks like Aaliyah. But, there is a real difference between the catwalk and life. Can you sit down in the jeans? Very elegant sit down,
(soft laughing) there, just kind of stretch out. Just kind of stretch out, kind of slouch, kind of be kind of cool, can’t sit up, just got to– and when you’re getting out of the chair, you got to kinda, come up like that. (laughing) Ready? Aaliyah? (door creaking) Uh, oh! Well.
Look at that! That coat is mad! I’m feeling the coat, the coat is off the rocker. This is a little different for me, I’m not liking the pants. Really? You look great!
Actually, you know, it’s cute, but it’s not– You’re still not there yet? Yeah, I’m still not there yet. You know what I think it’s time for? April, I think it’s time to go to Nike Town. Nike Town. I really do, but I do like the coat, I may have to snag the coat. So, we went looking for something a little more comfortable. Okay, you’re 18, you already went to your prom, is it possible at all to have a relationship on the road? I would say it’s possible, I just don’t have one. (laughing)
I don’t have one right now. I don’t have a boyfriend, and I can’t say I’m really looking. I think it will come at the right time. I have a lot of friends, and when that guy comes along, I’ll know it, he’ll know it, and then, it’ll happen. But, I am really busy with the career, and the fact that I’m getting ready to go back to school, so I’ll just see how it works in. Three years ago, there was this terrible rumor out. What is the deal with you and R. Kelly? Are you all married, or not? No, I’m not married. Robert’s doing his thing, I’m doing my thing, and he’s a great producer, a great artist who I do admire, and there’s nothing, nothing there at all. We are here! This is my place in New York. This is the final frontier! I’m sorry Aaliyah, these look really weird! They look like a martian.
Now, let me tell you something though. These, you get the right outfit with these, thumbs up, the right outfit will be fly. Okay, last time I bought some shoes, there were pumps, you know, remember the pumps? No, stop the madness, you had the? Okay.
(laughing) Well, we found some fun clothes, just nothing fit for premier. I can get this, which one do you want girl? I’ll get it for you! You cannot see the size, and get that, April. Uh huh, almost! (laughing)
(clapping) (car door slamming) What would you say the secret of life is? Secret to life, to living.
Secret to life, secret to life? To living, is to just be free, and enjoying life, when you choose a career, it’s got to be something you love, so that you want to get up and do it every day, and you know, you just have to love yourself, love what you do so you can enjoy life.

  1. RIP aaliyah if she was alive I believe she would be awake and she would expose R Kelly for his evils he did to her

  2. I really hate that we have to bring Aaliyah into this, it's such a sore topic. I really miss our lil' beautiful babygirl.

  3. It's already been verified by documents and lawyers that Aaliyah and R Kelly were married. The title is unnecessary, she was only 15 when it took place and just 18 here. She put the controversy behind her. It's unfortunate that she'll forever be intertwined with R Kelly because she is a part of his predatory history.

  4. WOW just when I thought I've seen every video footage of Aaliyah possible. Where the hell you guys were hiding this footage? This makes me think there is more rare in the vault footage of aaliyah

  5. If she said that she "isn't married" and in other interviews that she "was never married", then I respect her reply and I beleive her(after all its not allegedly, its from the horses mouth). Its not because most of you hate R Kelly that you have to discard someone's truth, just because it might be in his favour.

  6. Random but I never realized how thin Aaliyah was! She was a skinny mini. I'm sad that people only bring her up when "R. "Pee on you" Kelly" is mentioned, she was way more than that.

  7. I often wonder how her music would have been like in this age if she was alive? Music is so watered down and ratchet now I think she would have focused more on acting….

  8. I love Aaliyah so much but it's just so annoying that R Kelly name pops up all the time. He's disgusting and nasty. I had a dream about Aaliyah and she just smile at me no lie. She was an angel. Rip Princess of R&B.πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™πŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸπŸŒŸ

  9. Did yall hear that??? For ALL of the people who claims she's overrated and would've been like mya & Ciara she was called "Veteran" way before she died so let that tea sink in. β˜• QUEEN noone like her.

  10. I really don’t like the title of this video it seem like that the only thing people gotta talk about is this rumor…. it’s 25 years removed like move on either she did or she didn’t like we will never know the truth so just don’t worry bout

  11. The title should have been before aaliyah past away she denied the marrige off her and r Kelly cuzz with that titled I thought she was still alive

  12. Love aaliyah I wonder did she dress like that to be r.kelly boy toy
    .kelly will do time feds don't play

  13. It's time to file new charges relating to Aaliyah. Falsifying an official document, statutory rape along with illegally proposing marriage to a minor without the consent of legal a guardian. If you want R Kelly to stay locked up for good, we must dig deeper into Aaliyah and proved that her family was paid off too to keep quiet about R Kelly.

  14. That ending hit me hard. I wasnt expecting it to hurt as bad as it did in 2001. Rest well Queen. You were EVERYTHING…..

  15. i love this!!! she was soo ahead of her time & beautiful! i hate how you put R Kelly in the title though… i find that disrespectful smh.

  16. This interview was over ten years old and it looks like she was here in 2019 rockin her baggy jeans. Females of today will transform those jeans into a jacket or something. You will never see a female wearing jeans like that, until a celebrity brings them back..Everything has to be skin tight these days. RIP baby girl.

  17. My mother was dropping me off at the babysitters and I walked past a newspaper stand and saw Aaliyah's picture on the front page. I was like yes Aaliyah is coming to Toronto! My mom said no she died in a plane crash I was in total shock I couldn't believe it.

  18. a dime, no big butt or breast , just put together nice, and that face and long hair and style makes her dope and special

  19. She was so chill I love this clip she so beautiful it wouldn't matter how she look baggy or a dressed obviously she did wear more dresses at age 21 and 22 cant believe she gone what would she dress like now hair style her music everything what would she do now RIP aaliyah she was always head of the game in music

  20. The marriage was not only illegal but it was annulled in 95 she did not lie she always says "I'm NOT married" not "I didn't get married"

  21. I miss her so much, I loved her while she was here and when she passed away I was a kid that was broken and fell in love with her more. I vaguely remember seeing this but I love that this was put together. We get to revisit the past with β€œnew” postings that haven’t been uploaded online and also at times unreleased footage and I really appreciate it. It’s the way we have to keep Babygirl’s legacy alive πŸ˜πŸ’” thank you for this posting Inside Edition

  22. You would think that this was filmed a day ago. Just absolutely timeless. Still can’t fathom that this woman is no longer here πŸ˜”

  23. We need to see the copy of the marriage license. Not the marriage certificate. There’s a difference! Because on the marriage license, you would have to document your social security number on the application.

  24. Isn't it strange that here Aaliyah is 18 years of age, and Single and yet
    R kelly is no where to be found. Just that alone makes me wanna smack him again upside his perverted
    demented head.
    Just saying if I was truly in love with a woman no amount of public scrutiny ,legal contracts, or
    loss of money would be able to keep me from her. Especially now Since she's Freaking LEGAL!Β 
    Not saying I would of messed with her previously but I would have waited because it would of beenΒ 
    worth it.

    And come on you know she still had feelings for him. He was her first and they spent mad time together.
    Kelly you mad stupid son.

  25. I miss these days in the 90s. Especially being a New Yorker myself.Β 
    The atmosphere the tv shows the music the movies
    No social media, going outside to play, dial up internet, Grandparents being alive
    etc etc Good god how times have changed.

  26. Baby girl anniversary coming upπŸ™πŸΎβ€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈβ€οΈ

  27. I don’t think she ever wanted the lifestyle of fame. She never seemed happy. You rarely see her smile. To me, she always looked tired and like she just wanted to be left alone

  28. Allayah was a young lady whom was above her years and also her own person whom lied about her age and also was influenced by her Uncle whom brought Art Kelly and Allyiah together. DPitts. Everything was volunteered and not forced under any condition. DPitts

  29. I wish people let aliyah rip. The fact that people keep bringing her name up with r kelly is super old and tiresome. You think if she was here she would constantly be talking about r kelly uhh no she had already moved on for many years from r kelly when she was here so let it go people. Let what involvement she had with r kelly go and speak of her in her greatness by her self.

  30. I loved watching this. This is the best thing I've seen since the MTV Diary to get a glimpse into her down to earth, everyday personality. I love her soft spoken, poised and elegant side she shows in most of her interviews, but I also love seeing her like this. It's the closest thing to experiencing what it would have been like to actually know her. Beautiful girl. Almost 18 years and we'll never forget.
