So. Apparently. There’s a TLC biopic in the works, and I wasn’t even consulted about it; so there’s that to be confused about on a Thursday morning. Also, said TLC biopic has apparently cast Lil’ Mama (best known for her Lip Gloss single, judging America’s Best Dance Crew, and for embarrassing the hell out of her self at the 2009 MTV VMAs) as Lisa ‘Left-Eye’ Lopes. I am now, officially, confused. Click inside for more deets that will, hopefully, explain all of this.
Hip Hollywood has the story:
Lil Mama has been cast to play the late Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez in the upcoming biopic about the R&B group TLC!
MC Lyte broke the news to HipHollywood while out and about during Grammy week — She went on to say how she is looking to take Lil Mama under her wing and get her the shine she deserves! …
VH1 has already begun production on the TLC biopic and both T-Boz and Chilli serve as consultants and executive producers on the film.
MMhhhhhkay… I mean, I loved Lil’ Mama on ABDC, but I didn’t know she was, like, an actress. I get that this is a TV biopic, and I see the resemblance between Lil’ Mama and Left-Eye, but still. They could have gotten… an actual actress, right? I dunno; I’m totally weirded out by this news and I feel like I need more information, lol.
It goes without saying that TLC was/is one of the greatest groups of all time. As a fan, I just want to see things done right… so I don’t know about this news. I would say that it’s good news that Chilli and T-Boz are involved, but they’ve both made some *interesting* choices when it comes to their own projects so yeah. LMAO. I don’t know about this!!!
What do y’all think? Does this project sound like it’s headed in the right direction?
