Are you watching Crazy Sexy Cool: The TLC Story on VH1 tonight? I definitely will, even if the trailer kind of undersells it for me. Also, I know this is kind of superficial, but of the cast – Lil Mama as Left Eye, Keke Palmer as Chilli and Drew Sidora as T-Boz – only Lil Mama really looks the part. Slate confirms my suspicions that it won’t be amazing, but says we’ll find ourselves watching TLC videos on YouTube for hours after we watch it. Which is always a good thing.
What can I say? They were my faves back in the day, especially Left Eye. I even wrote a whole piece about it (“To Left Eye, With Love”) for Fusion (ABC/Univision) last year, on the 10th anniversary of her death.
Listen to Chilli & T-Boz, who executive produced the VH1 pic, on NPR earlier this a.m.
