T-Boz & Chilli are everywhere right now! TLC Time!!!

TLC has been on a crazy media run these last few weeks. With the release of their new compilation album 20 on Tuesday, the two ladies are now focusing on their movie CrazySexyCool:The TLC story with Vh1. They've appeared recently on Good Morning America, radio shows such as the Breakfast Club, and are set to be on Wendy Williams today.

There's a lot of talk surrounding this new movie starring Keke Palmer as Chilli, Lil Mama as Left Eye, and Drew Sidora as T-Boz. Most of it is good talk- fans like myself are eagerly excited to get new anything from TLC. They practically raised us. The general public has also always been invested in the amazing and sometimes out right crazy story of one of music's most legendary groups. People want to know the real on the highs and lows they experienced throughout their career, and they feel they will really get it this time being that T-Boz and Chilli were very much so a part of making the movie.

There has been some negative feedback. As always whenever a film like this is released there is always someone who won't be all the way happy with their portrayal. Pebbles, who founded TLC has spoken out in recent days. She doesn't like the way she is being portrayed in this moment that is meant to celebrate a group, she "put on the map". T-Boz has responded by saying that they just wanted to tell the truth about what happened to them, and that there's no ill intent behind it. They're just telling their story.

The ladies of TLC have had a lot more to say in their recent interviews. They've commented on everything from the controversy of Lil Mama jumping on stage with Jay Z years ago, and how the public came down on her because of it. They touched on Miley Cyrus a bit, and opened up about what it's been like to create a movie about their lives. It's been really cool to see them everywhere for the past few weeks! Loving this era for them, and I can't WAIT to watch this movie on October 21st!
