Lifetime's controversial movie, “Aaliyah: Princess of R&B,”
caused several related terms to trend on Twitter during its debut on
The trending topics included “#AaliyahMovie”; “Missy and Timbaland,”
referring to Aaliyah's longtime producing partners; “RKelly,” her
producer and husband by a marriage that was later annulled; and Wendy Williams, the talk show host who joined the project as an executive producer amid controversy, among other terms.
The huge amount of social activity surrounding the movie is the good
news for Lifetime. The bad news is that many of the tweets were harsh.
At one point in the evening, “#LifetimeDisrespectsAaliyah” was a
trending topic, for example.
Executive produced by Williams, Howard Braunstein and Debra Martin
Chase, the two-hour movie is based on Christopher John Farley's
bestselling book “Aaliyah: More Than a Woman.” It charts Aaliyah's life
from the age of 10 when she appeared on “Star Search,” the path to her
first album and R. Kelly, her meteoric rise and then to age 22 when she
died in a plane crash in 2001.
Here's a sample of the tweets that filled Twitter timelines while the movie aired:

The most "complicated" handmade watch in the world has been sold at auction for an historic $24.4 million.
The Henry Graves Supercomplication timepiece, made by the luxury watchmaker Patek Philippe in 1933 for the prominent banker Henry Graves, was sold at Sotheby's in Switzerland.
The sale smashed the
world record for the most expensive watch ever sold at auction, which
was previously held by the same watch. In 1999, it was sold to Sheikh
Saud Bin Mohammed Bin Ali Al-Thani of the Qatari royal family, for $11
The watch was released in
2014 to coincide with the 175th anniversary of the Swiss watch maker.
The sale has benefited from the boom in Patek Phillippe auction values
over the last 15 years.
The term "complication"
is a technical one, and refers to any aspect of a watch that offers a
function that is not simply telling the time.
The timepiece -- which
has been called "the most important watch in the world," "one of the
wonders of the world," and "the collector's holy grail" -- boasts 24
These include grande and
petite sonnerie (chimes), which emulate the bells of Westminster; a
record of the phases and age of the moon; sunrise and sunset
indications; a "perpetual calendar" that makes automatic adjustments for
month and year; and a celestial map of the New York sky.
The watch was made by Patek Philippe for Henry Graves, a prominent banker, in 1933.
The celestial map alone
is a remarkable feat of engineering. It charts the precise spacing and
density of the stars, and rotates at the same pace as the sky as it
would have appeared from its owner's Fifth Avenue apartment.
The watch is comprised
of 900 individual parts, and, according to Sotheby's, is the most
advanced timepiece ever made without the assistance of computers. It was
last wound in 1969, yet remains in perfect working order.
