Last night the highly anticipated TLC biopic, CrazySexyCool, premiered on VH1 and I was there for all of it!
The movie tells the story of Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes and Rozanda “Chilli” Thomas and how they rose to fame as the ’90s girl group, TLC. The movie began with how the group was formed in the early ’90s and continued up until Lopes’ death in 2002.
The movie hit all the major points in their careers and personal lives, including relationship drama and issues with their record label. Although the scenes seemed a little rushed, I can tell that hours and hours of preparation were taken to recreate some of the music videos and scenarios covered in the film. The actresses who played the three women – Drew Sidora as T-Boz, Keke Palmer as Chilli and Lil Mama as Left Eye – share a crazy resemblance to TLC and watching them was kinda of creepy at times!
As I mentioned on Twitter, Lil Mama definitely stole the show with her uncanny resemblance to Left Eye and the fact that she totally nailed the role, down to her voice and body language. Immediately after watching the movie, I listened to all the groups hits and even watched a few videos on YouTube.
In honor of the movie and how these ladies managed to entertain us while battling some serious issues, check out my three favorite TLC videos below!
