Zendaya has been staying up late thinking about someone, and it's not a new crush — it's the movie role that got away. After her casting caused major controversy, Zendaya reluctantly dropped out of a Lifetime biopic in which she was slated to play the late pop singer Aaliyah, and she's obviously still torn up about it.

Zendaya posted a drawing of Aaliyah on Instagram with the caption, "Time to go to sleep…I gotta stop myself or I'd be drawing all night."


We know that Zendaya is an amazing artist, so of course we loving seeing her sketches. But it's still a bummer that her Aaliyah movie role didn't work out. She seems to be taking it pretty hard.
