From Alexandra Shipp's Instagram/Websta and posted an hour ago: "When watching my film tonight, know that I am human. Know that your words and your opinions are your own and that you may think you know, but until we speak face 2 face, you'll never truly know who I am. That's ok. I can't wait to meet each and every one of my fans one day. Because I'm a fan of them too! I work hard, I put all my effort into whatever I do. At the end of the day I'm just a normal girl who got the opportunity of a lifetime and wouldn't let that go for anything or anyone. Because that's what dreams are: they're YOURS. I'm following mine. I encourage and support EVERYONE in doing that for themselves. Because God put this role in my lap, I believe that, and I wasn't going to throw a gift like that away. Y'all can hate, y'all can debate, but one thing the critics won't do is win. God bless and please watch my movie 🙏 #aaliyah #aaliyahmovie #aaliyahbiopic #aaliyahprincessofrandb photo by @foto119".
