Zelina Vega pays homage to Aaliyah

I’m here with Zelina Vega. And Zelina anyone who knows you
knows how much your life and career has been inspired by R and
B artist Aaliyah. You were in Vegas this past
weekend celebrating her life, so tell us a little bit about that.>>Well I went to Madam Tussaud’s for
the reveal of her wax figure, and I was there invited by her brother Rashad. And that for me was insane in itself. If you would’ve told me at six, seven, eight years old that I’d
be meeting her family and be there celebrating such an amazing
event, I probably wouldn’t believe you. But it was great because not
only was the figure amazing and it looked just like her,
everybody was there having a great time. And just I was listening
to her music there and everybody just felt that 90s early 2000
vibe, and it was absolutely amazing.>>I saw what you posted
on your Instagram, and I had no idea that she was a WWE fan.>>Right.>>I am so looking forward
to Stone Cold Steve Austin. My brother and I, we were little,
we were huge wrestling fans. We went to the matches, we still watch it. And I love Mankind, okay.>>I know, yeah, that-
>>Really it was something that just made me feel more connected to her because we
shared such a love for wrestling, for WWE, for music, and
it just felt very tied together. And I tie her into everything that I do,
whether it be my ring gear or my outfits, even now,
this is a little try again inspired. So it’s something that I feel that I
need to continue to represent her and to bring her into the things that I do,
because a lot of the younger fans may not know the legend that is Aaliyah and
I want to bring that to people. It was really important for
me to recreate her music videos even. That was something I worked very
closely with two friends of mine, Freddy and Felipe, and
they did such an amazing job. Valentina from our glam squad was there
and hooked it all up, and it was something that was really out of my comfort zone,
but I felt like I needed to do it. And to get the, wow, that’s amazing,
you did so great, from Rashad, her brother, so cool.>>I mean the side-by-side
comparisons are incredible. I heard that in meeting her brother,
you were actually nervous for that moment.>>My god, [LAUGH] who told you that? [LAUGH]
>>We are actually all very, very, very happy to meet you in person,
and your husband, you there!>>Behind the camera.>>You guys are real stars to us too. And thank you guys for being here, and
thank you for all the years, everything, for being there. You are one of the most
incredible supporters, you’re using your talent and
[INAUDIBLE] down and [INAUDIBLE]. Can I get a hug?>>Of course, thank you so much.>>He was so warm and so welcoming and-
>>He said some kind words to you as well.>>He did, and he said, I know my
sister’s looking down and so happy. And I did cry, I cried. I cut that out of the video, but I cried.>>Well I’m glad that you had that moment. Thank you so much for
sharing that with us.>>Thank you, Cathy.

  1. If there would be a biotopic movie for Aaliyah(like the one in Selena featuring J.Lo), Thea Megan Trinidad aka Zelina Vega would be the PERFECT woman to portray her.

  2. For you younger fans who don't know Aaliyah. She was an American singer, actress, and model. Born in Brooklyn, New York, and raised in Detroit, Michigan, she first gained recognition at the age of 10, when she appeared on the television show Star Search and performed in concert alongside Gladys Knight. She sadly died by: Aaliyah and her entourage were eager to return to the U.S. and made the decision to leave immediately. The designated airplane was smaller than the Cessna 404 on which they had originally arrived, but the whole party and all of the equipment were accommodated on board. The plane crashed shortly after takeoff, about 200 feet (60 m) from the end of the runway and exploded. Thanks Wiki.

  3. She did done the video for her music video during her passing on. Plus, rey mysterio still got the tattoo of aaliyah name on his body
