"CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story" premieres at 9 tonight (October 21) on VH1, digging into the tale of the successful R&B trio that's sold more than 65 million records worldwide and scored No. 1 hits such as "Waterfalls," "No Scrubs," "Creep" and "Unpretty."
The biopic was executive produced by surviving TLC members Rozonda "Chili" Thomas and Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins (Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes died in an April 2002 car crash) and Thomas tells us fans can expect the inside scoop on the group's career:
"It's totally about the three of us, when we got in the group and all the trials and tribulations of the stuff that we've gone through and all the way to where we're are today. So it's gonna cover a lot of ground. A lot of stuff was out in the press. We're gonna touch on those thing but we're gonna touch on a lot more people did not know about, things we were going through, and help people understand some of the things they heard about. They're gonna get the back story...It's gonna be juicy, I'll just tell you that. It's gonna be good juicy."
"CrazySexyCool" was directed by Charles Stone III ("Drumline," "Mr. 3000," "Paid in Full") and starring Keke Palmer (Thomas), Drew Sidora (Watkins) and Natia "Lil Mama" Kirkland (Lopes).
Chili and T-Boz recorded TLC's first new song in nine years, "Meant To Be," for a new compilation, "20," that accompanies the VH1 film. Chili and T-Boz are also working on a full album of new material that's due out next year.
