VH1 released the trailer for CrazySexyCool, a biopic about the 90's dominating R&B group TLC. Buzz about the film began in 2011, and its October 21 debut is just around the corner! It stars Drew Sidora as T-Boz, Lil’ Mama as Left-Eye, and Keke Palmer as Chili. The casting couldn’t be more perfect! Watching the young actresses perform Creep, Waterfalls, and No Scrubs is eerie but, my bets are on Lil’ Mama to steal the show in her performance as the zany Left-Eye. The similarities between Lil’ Mama and Left-Eye are undeniable, and she has the late star’s demeanor down to a tee!
Executive produced by T-Boz and Chili, I’m sure the biopic will lack any real dirt beyond what has already been revealed on VH1’s Behind the Music docu-series (BTW, whatever happened to that?). Despite the ladies’ censorship, I can appreciate a dramatic reenactment of their crazy path to super-stardom. The group’s bankruptcy, and Left-Eye’s Angela Basset in Waiting to Exhale moment will definitely come into play.
I almost forgot how commercially successful TLC was but watching this trailer has me ready to download some of my favorite old-school joints from the pop trio. I can’t wait to see this one!
