What can you say about a massively popular, celebrated band like TLC that hasn’t already been said? VH1 is attempting to answer that question by gifting the world with a made-for-TV biopic to add to their impressive roster of TLC-themed entertainment, which at this point includes the band’s episode of Behind the Music and the documentary The Last Days of Left Eye.
CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story follows Left Eye (Lil Mama), T-Boz (Drew Sidora), and Chili (Keke Palmer) as they navigate their rise to fame and success in the music industry. I can only assume they’re going to milk Lil Mama’s amazing Left Eye impression for everything it’s worth and address her tragic death near the end of the movie as well.
The film looks like a campy good time, if not a bit cheesy. Hey, this is VH1 we’re talking about. These are the good people who bring you T.I. and Tiny and a viewing of Showgirls twice an afternoon. So look forward to many a recreated music video, put on your silk pajamas and enjoy the ride. Check out the trailer after the break.
