Throwback beef: When Aaliyah responded to Brandy

Back in the 90s, 15-year-old Aaliyah was showcasing her midriff and rocking the tomboy look, much to Brandy's disapproval.
A 15-year-old Brandy at the time, had reportedly made comments about Aaliyah's image being a little too grown and how her mother would never approve. Aaliyah debuted first and her image was a bit more "mature," while Brandy's image was more 'girl next door.' Aaliyah was asked about it in an interview (see below) and refused to be baited. Later, Brandy shouted out Aaliyah at an award show, and they were cool a few years later. Aaliyah's rivals were Brandy and Monica at the time. However, Aaliyah just seemed comfortable, because she was in a lane of her own.

One of the reasons why she was so loved was not just because she was extremely beautiful and talented. But because she was so laidback and had the sweetest personality. She never said a bad word against anyone. She didn't know the meaning of petty, even if it slapped her in the face. So, when she passed at the premature age of 22, it was one of the saddest moments in R&B music.
