I mean, really? Lisa Lopes? Aaliyah? Really? I never even got over those two. Do y'all know I'm still in denial about their deaths over a decade later?
This right here was my girl. I liked her so much. At the risk of dating myself, I remember Natina Reed very well; she was my favorite member of Blaque. I listened to them in high school. *sniff*
For the record, she was Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes's protege, not relative (whom, as we all recall, also died in a car accident). Which would explain their similar styles in 'tude, tone, and threads.
Natina was, however, the cousin of Farrah Franklin, whom some of you will recognize as a former Child of Destiny.
I loved her in Bring It On. When she says, "No, how about I choke you?" I clapped every time. *sniff* She was actually working on a solo album and another movie at the time of her death.
"Beat these Buffies down" - I'd forgotten about that line!!! *claps hands*

This version right here was a fail, though.
No, boo. We're not diggin' yo Timbs, yo baggy jeans, or yo "thug appeal." Youse was in a boy band, JC. Come on now.
That bugged me all through senior year, y'all.
Amaya, before you even start, I call dibs on Shamari's corset.
