Zendaya explains biopic decision: "I feel like it was being rushed...production wasn't there."

When walking the red carpet on last night's BET Awards, singer and actress Zendaya was questioned about decision role to drop out of the controversial Aaliyah biopic.

"I feel it was being rushed and I feel like production just wasn't there. I have too much respect and love for Aaliyah as a person to do anything less than for her. If I'm going to do something, it has to be done 120 percent right. I love her and can't wait to portray her another time when the time is right..."

On Keke Palmer publicly defending her:

"We were friends but after this she's definitely like a big sister, for sure."
