Tonite was the much-anticipated premiere of the new biopic on TLC — CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story on VH1! The cast bills Chi-Town's own Drew Sidora as T-Boz, Lil Mama as the late Left Eye Lopes, and Keke Palmer as Chilli. The biopic itself ranges from 1990-2002 and recreates all of the ups and downs of the careers and lives of the trio, until Left Eye's tragic car accident. I was getting ready to watch it live but got last-minute tickets to the Bulls game and who can turn down to see Derrick Rose's return, right? That's neither here nor there, but it's just my way of saying that I'll have this queued up today to watch and see how they honored TLC's legacy in CrazySexyCool.
Here is the official description and the full video below!
CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story tells the story of TLC’s humble beginnings in Atlanta, GA which led to an unprecedented rise to fame in the 1990′s as one of the world’s most talented, celebrated, and highest-selling female groups of all time. Through very public and high-profile turmoil, success, and tragedy, TLC left an indelible stamp of female empowerment that changed the face of the music industry forever.
VH1 is set to air the TLC biopic on October 21st and after a look at their newest teaser above, I'm even more excited to see the story pan out with Lil Mama, Keke Palmer, and Drew Sidora all looking and acting the parts of Left Eye, Chilli, & T-Boz respectively. The teaser hints at the good times and tough times the group experienced, and like Jazmyne hopes when she posted the first trailer, I hope we'll also get some insight into each member in addition to TLC's career chronicle. We'll all see soon enough next month!
The story of Legendary hip hop/r&b/pop trio TLC. The group rose to fame in 1991 when they signed to LaFace Records, releasing their multi-platinum debut. Their 1994 follow-up, CrazySexyCool sold over 22 million copies, and Fanmail sold over 10 million copies in 1999. This group experienced bankruptcy, illness, group fights, and death. All the way dominating the charts and the music industry.
