Watch: Lil Mama Does Her Best Left Eye in Trailer for VH1's TLC Biopic 'Crazy Sexy Cool'

VH1 has just released the trailer for its much-anticipated TLC biopic, “Crazy Sexy Cool: The TLC Story.”  The film, which follows the career of Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, and Rozanda “Chili” Thomas,” follows the girl’s rise to fame, financial troubles, and Lopes’s tragic death.  The name of the film comes from the group’s most popular album which spawned hits like “Waterfalls” and “Creep.”

VH1 is no stranger to the story of the megafamous R&B group’s story.  The TLC episode of “Behind the Music” was a cultural phenomenon upon its release, as was the documentary “The Last Days of Left Eye.” 

Rapper Lil Mama is already getting credit for her stellar Left Eye impression.  Keke Palmer (“Akeelah and the Bee”) plays Chili, and Drew Sidora plays “T-Boz.”

Check out the slightly cheesy trailer, which features a lot of lipsynching to “No Scrubs,” and some inspirational one-liners.  To get your fix, we’ve also included the “Behind the Music” and “Last Days of Left Eye” trailers below.
