Video: Sneak peek at VH1’s “CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story”

tlcFirst female group to have an album certified diamond. Highest grossing tour by a female band, ever. Grammy’s. Billboards. They are the second best selling female group of all time, behind the Spice Girls (tough act to follow, I know). They are the legendary group known as TLC!

The Atlanta-based R&B/rap/hip-hop trio also tackled issues like racism, sexism, safe sex, and HIV/AIDS awareness, through their lyrics and by talking about, holding and wearing condoms (see photo above.)

This fall VH1 is releasing an biopic CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story,  about their early years up through the tragic death of member Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. You can expect Keke Palmer (Akeelah and the Bee) to play Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, Drew Sidroa (That’s So Raven) as Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, and Lil Mama (America’s Best Dance Crew, and more notably, Jay-Z stage crasher) as Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. I can’t wait for the premiere!

This is some serious girl power. Watch the trailer below the jump.
