Yes, you, the person who spent 15 minutes arguing with the Walgreens cashier over coupons. Pebbles got annoyed with Chilli and kicked her out of the group; she bought them some raggedy, outdated Rav-4s to appease them; and wound up suing them a few years later. Dallas Austin, the movie’s second biggest d-bag next to Pebbles, was absolutely ridiculous.TLC’s story isn’t unique though, even Toni Braxton was eating ramen noodles while on La Face Records. Yet Chilli spent the first half of the movie pining for him, even though T-Boz told him he was no good.
Keke Palmer and Drew Sidora shined in their roles as Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, respectively.But the real star was Lisa “Left-Eye” Lopes, played by Lil Mama or Lil Bow Wow or whoever that was.Regardless, s/he OWNED that role, embodying both the fury and feistiness that made her one of the biggest stars of the 90s.I thought I was pretty well-versed in TLC’s tumultuous history but I came away with new appreciation for the group after the credits rolled – and ads for the hideous Love & Hip Hop infested my screen. The mysterious Crystal was the original “C” in TLC before getting dumped for Chilli.And it was a wise move, considering that the movie portrayed her as having the vocal prowess of Rihanna eating a sandpaper sandwich.Seriously, there is no way she could have sounded THAT bad in real life. I have no idea but seeing that the movie portrayed her has a low-rent Beyonce I assume she was locked in the Knowles attic, never to be seen again. Anyway, TLC’s manager Pebbles has never been painted in the most positive of light but good lord, this movie made her a wig-wearing Gargamel.
She gave the girls a $25 weekly stipend, which means I made more money cutting my lawn than the best selling female group of all time.
Let that sink in – you had more money than the best selling girl group of all time.
TLC’s hits, of course, proved timeless, reminding me that their music served as a soundtrack for most of my adolescent and young adult life.
Middle school Edd thought the condoms wedged in their shades in their first videos were plastic egg yokes. I listened as they “Creeped” through the halls of my high school and had entitled (but broke) chicks screaming slurs against “Scrubs” on my college campus.
And my future wife and I even bonded over their final album, which wasn’t nearly the disaster many folks claim.
While the music was undeniable, the performances of the main actors were surprisingly stellar too.
