There are just SIX days left until VH1 premieres the TLC biopic “CrazySexyCool“, which appears to be highly-anticipated! As a TLC fan myself, I will definitely say that just from the trailer, this looks like a must-see! The movie goes through the triumphs and tragedies of the chart-topping girl group including their rise to fame, the infamous headlines surrounding them and the tragic loss of Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes. Just in the trailer, there were no secrets kept as we see Chilli get pregnant by producer Dallas Austin ( played by Evan Ross), T-Boz become ill with sickle-cell anemia, and Left Eye smack up her man and a chick he’s caught cheating with before setting his mansion on fire. The group also goes broke and bankrupt at the peak of their careers.
Jumping forward to the present, the group also has a new CD dropping this Tuesday, October 15th. It is a commemoration of their 20th anniversary. The CD, entitled 20, features some of TLC’s greatest hits as well as four brand-new tracks.
Bill Diggins, TLC’s longtime manager had this to say about the project:
T-Boz and Chilli, “told [their story] accurately and they told it in a way that, at some points, wasn’t so flattering to them. They wanted the truth to be told, so I would say that you’re not going to get a more accurate depiction of these girls lives from anybody. This is the good, the bad and the ugly.”
He also had this to say:
“I had to be very frank with them about where they were in the marketplace today… I just felt the window closing,” Diggins says. “We decided that we would all join forces on it and focus on a big comeback.”
I don’t know about y’all, but I so ready for this! Sadly, I don’t have cable at my house, but I will definitely be at someone else’s house watching lol!
Watch the trailer here below! And be sure to watch the TV movie when it airs on VH1, next Monday, October 21st at 9pm/8pmC!
