Zendaya Stuns At BET Awards, Drops Out of Aaliyah Biopic

It's hard to say just what exactly Zendaya was wearing at the BET Awards today (some kind of sweatsuit dress?), but whatever it is, the 17-year-old looked stunning. In fact, she was probably the best dressed star on the red carpet -- besides maybe Pharrell Williams, of course.

The "Replay" songstress was all smiles at the event despite new reports that she's dropped out of Lifetime's upcoming Aaliyah biopic. No official reason has been given yet, but considering all the problems and negativity that's surrounded the TV movie since its announcement --including being unable to acquire the rights to Aaliyah's music, and Aaliyah's family rallying against the project-- we're not surprised to see Zendaya split.

Luckily Zendaya's not short on work in the TV movie department: Her Disney channel movie 'Zapped' recently premiered to 5.7 million viewers, making it the No.1 cable TV telecast among kids and tweens of 2014.

We're bummed that she won't be playing Aaliyah, but on the bright side, at least that means she'll have more time to work on some new music.
