VH1 Debuts New Trailer for ‘CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story’

Drew Sidora, Left Eye, and KeKe Palmer

TLC continued their comeback campaign at Sunday’s VMAs. In anticipation of their upcoming album, Chilli and T-Boz walked the red carpet and introduced Drake’s performance.

During the commercials, VH1 aired a new trailer for the upcoming TLC biopic CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story. Lil Mama, KeKe Palmer, and Drew Sidora bear an uncanny resemblance to Left Eye, Chilli, and T-Boz in the scripted film, which premieres October 21 at 9 p.m.

In the 30-second spot, the actresses recreate famous moments from the trio’s life and career including their Grammy wins, relationship drama, and even burning down a house (as Left Eye did in 1994).

“This is how a group can sell 10 million albums and be broke,” says Lil Mama, who plays Left Eye.

Watch the promo below and get excited for TLC’s return.

MTV celebrated the legacy of TLC at their international Video Music Awards in Japan over the weekend. Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas were on hand to accept the “Legend Award,” which has only been given to Michael Jackson in the past.

“We’d just like to thank all of our fans and anybody who’s had a hand in our career,” said T-Boz. “We’ve had 20 years and we’re still going and we’re so blessed to be here and get this award.”

She also thanked her daughter Chase, Chilli’s son Tron, and the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. “Three girls, three dreams, and we did it,” she said.

Left Eye’s mother and sister were in attendance. “Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes is our sister. She lives on forever in this group, TLC,” said Chilli. “I want to give a shout-out to her family that came here to support us. I know she’s smiling right now. I know she has a hand in us continuing on and she’s missed, but she’s never forgotten.”

The duo performed an energetic dance medley of their greatest hits including “Silly Ho,” “Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg,” “What About Your Friends,” “Baby-Baby-Baby,” “Diggin’ on You,” “Unpretty,” “No Scrubs,” and “Waterfalls.”
