Thursday marks ten years since passing of one of music’s most talented artists,Aaliyah. The songstress died in a small plane crash in The Bahamas. The news broke the hearts of many and the pain was felt worldwide.
Damon Dash was Aaliyah boyfriend at the time of her death. He recently opened up to Billboard about her passing.
“My heart was broken. Nothing prepares you for that, she was intelligent and she caught me,” Dash tells The Juice. “I’m the kind of guy who says things sometimes just to make myself laugh, but she would just catch me making jokes for me. I couldn’t get anything past her. She had a very quick mind and a very kind heart.”
“She was always working and shooting movies. She was always gone for like four months at a time, then come back and be gone for another month. She had to rehearse and I was doing my own thing, so it was really hard for us to get long stretches of time together. When you’re with someone like that you buy into a life of being separate, but again, I couldn’t help my feelings,” Dame says.
“The energy we created together for people to observe was kind of crazy. We’d be in a room full of people talking to each other and it felt like everyone was listening but it would be just us. It would be like we were the only ones in the room,” Dash recalls. “It was like something was going down in history every time I was with her. Every time I was around her I felt it was the place to be.”
“Our time together meant so much that when we got more time, we felt like that [engagement] would be next,” Dame says. “She was one of the best people I ever met. Even with the pain I felt, I would do it all over again.”
This breaks are heart…Damon dash was truly in love with her. Aaliyah had a undeniable charm that captivated the world. She is truly missed.
