A very long QotD interview - A Stuart Townsend Fan Media Archive
Aaliyah with Stuart Townsend in "Queen of the Damned'': The radiant year-old singer-actress was killed in the crash of a small plane last. Late singer's brother Rashad to overdub some lines that were difficult to understand. Speaking to Irish entertainment website egauteng.info, Dylan Townsend said: 'He's Previous love: Stuart dated Charlize for almost a decade after.
Closely supported by family her mom is her managershe released her first album, Age Ain't Nothing but a Number, when she was just 15 but was rocked by scandal when reports surfaced that she had secretly married R. Kelly, the producer of her debut, who was 10 years older.

Kelly and Aaliyah have since parted ways. When asked if she is still in touch with Kelly, Aaliyah answers only with a firm, frosty no.
Street But Sweet - TIME
Her multiplatinum sophomore album, One in a Millionproved she could make music--and sell records--without Kelly's help. Aaliyah's new CD--coming five years after her last one--has been much anticipated. For young audiences tiring of teeny pop and older listeners turned off by gangsta rap, the new wave of hip-hop-soul singers provides a safe haven: This month hip-hop-soul newcomer Alicia Keys, a protege of Clive Davis, the executive who signed Houston, saw her charming first album, Songs in A Minor, debut on the charts at No.
Aaliyah describes her own sound as "street but sweet"; her tracks typically feature gentle vocals riding on a hard beat. Aaliyah's singing on her latest CD is more assertive than in the past and her melodic lines more distinct. The best songs--the thumping More Than a Woman and the elegant ballad It's Whatever--display a growing sophistication and emotional depth. One track, Never No More, is about a woman leaving a physically abusive relationship. The key to Aaliyah's charm, however, is mystery.
The young star loves to hint at private quirkiness. There could be a fortune sitting in your mobile handset.
Remembering Aaliyah On The 12th Anniversary Of Her Death
If you snapped it then send it to us at: Ireland's latest heartthrob Stuart Townsend has taken Hollywood by storm as his latest movie topped the US box office last weekend. His latest starring role as that aging vampire Lestat in the Australian-shot Queen of the Damned. And his romance with the gorgeous Charlize Theron, which became publicly known right here on ShowBizIreland.
In a recent conversation with Paul Fischer in LA, the Dublin actor talked about the changes in his life over the past year and the role of Lestat in the movie. A lot of people ask me, if it's intimidating because Tom Cruise was the star of the original and that kind of thing, but for me, it was just such a different story, it was rock and roll.
He loved music and he was creative and he wasn't given a choice. He was just created, then he was left alone and then spends a couple of hundred years hiding in the shadows, wanting to enjoy all these powers and wanting to connect but literally emerging as this solitary bird.
He despises that, even though he's monstrous at times but he kind of has to deal with that, along with existence. Would we want to live forever? Why do we all watch movies?
Reality is quite mundane but we have great imaginations such that, you know, there are tons of beautiful things in this world, but I don't think I'd like to be around forever.
The year old singer who tragically died in a plane crash last year, shortly after completing principal photography on Queen of the Damned. She was a really special person and, I mean amazing on set.
