Dionne Warwick Is Calling For Teyana Taylor To Play Her In A Movie
“Please don’t ask who I would cast to play me as it would obviously be @TEYANATAYLOR,” tweeted the legendary singer.
Dionne Warwick‘s life on the small screen? The legendary singer is down!
On Wednesday, the 80-year-old singer — who has gained new fame with the youth as an avid tweeter — posted a video directed at Netflix with an idea for who she’d like to see play her in a hypothetical series: singer and dancer Teyana Taylor. This shows the power of Ms. Dionne Warwick. Netflix responded immediately!
I’ll call ya! ☎️ https://t.co/jIifZt95qw— Dionne Warwick (@dionnewarwick) December 16, 2020
“This is a case for @netflix,” she captioned the video, where she asked if people would really watch a series about her life. “Please don’t ask who I would cast to play me as it would obviously be @TEYANATAYLOR.”
“🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾,” wrote Taylor, 30, who recently announced she’s “retiring” from music.
Netflix’s Twitter account was quick to slide into Warwick’s replies, writing “taking ✍️ notes ✍️..” The “I Say a Little Prayer” singer replied, “I’ll call ya!”

The new post from Warwick comes just a day after Warwick shared a photo of Taylor with the caption, “It runs in the family.” Taylor quote tweeted it, writing “Period. 🤎” (The two aren’t actually related.)
This also isn’t the first time Warwick has addressed the visual similarities between herself and Taylor.
Last January, after a fan tweeted, “Y’all ever noticed that Teyana Taylor looks like Dionne Warwick?”, Warwick retweeted it and tagged the “Gonna Love Me” songstress.
“Seriously some networks needs to make the @_DionneWarwick biopic & cast @TEYANATAYLOR to play her. Tell me y’all don’t see it!” he wrote.
