My first memory of Aaliyah
I remember the first time I saw Aaliyah was on my cousin's bedroom wall. I was just drawn to her picture, because I kept thinking "What the hell kind of girl wears no make-up, baggy mens clothes and has a damn car registration plate around their neck!?" It was a stupid image to me at the time, but it's one that stuck and kept me staring at that one poster amongst the hundreds of Right-On magazine pull-outs which covered every millimetre of wallpaper on my cousins wall. This was my introduction to Aaliyah and at this point I didn't ever think I'd grow to like her as much as I did and would become such a fan and lover of her music.
