Aaliyah on Star Search at the age of 10: But she looks like an adult

Post By RelatedRelated Post

Aaliyah is one of the most beloved singers in the history of R&B music.  She died tragically in the year 2001 in a plane crash, but was on her way to fame, fortune and stardom.  Scratch that:  She was already there, with movie roles, hit songs and a loyal legion of fans who all looked up to her and wanted to be just like her.

This is an old clip of Aaliyah and how she got her start on Star Search.  Of course her voice is angelic and her performance is highly polished.  In fact, you could say that her first appearance on Star Search is better than the one registered by Beyonce Knowles.

The 10 year old has her hair done to a tee and a beautiful white dress, and you have to wonder if she looks a little older than the age of 10.   Not that she’s dressed inappropriately, but it does appear that she has makeup on and the hairstyle of an older woman.  The clip was taken in 1989.

Looking old for her age might not have helped her five years down the road when the singer was dating R. Kelly, who was over the age of 30 at the time.  Maybe sometimes, fame and fortune can make our kids grow up a little bit too fast.  Were Aaliyah’s parents protecting her from the trappings of the music industry?

What do you think?   Should there be a limit on how a young girl appears at the age of 10, or does none of this matter?

Watch the clip and give us your take.
