Nailed It??? Yaya DaCosta As Whitney Houston In New Lifetime Biopic

Submitted by on July 11, 2014 – 9:22 amNo Comment

A picture of actress/model Yaya DaCosta in the role of Whitney Houston for the upcoming Lifetime biopic hit the net Thursday. The image features the former America’s Next Top Model contestant recreating Whitney’s iconic pose from the cover of her 1987 Whitney album.

“I just looked at the picture and did the pose,” Yaya told Entertainment Weekly.

Lifetime is moving full steam ahead with the biopic despite Whitney’s family’s disapproval. As we previously reported, the Houston family thinks Whitney is “too big” for a made-for-TV movie, and was considering legal action to stop production on the project. Whitney’s only child, 21-year-old Bobbi Kristina, was also incensed that she was not cast to play her mother in the film, and recently lashed out at the film’s director, actress Angela Bassett, on Twitter. She later apologized for the angry outburst.

The movie is scheduled to premiere in 2015. What do you think of Yaya as Whitney? Let us know by leaving us a comment below.
