Earlier this week, celebrities fled New York City for the premiere of TLC’s first VH1 biopic “Crazy.Sexy.Cool.”
Celebs like Diana Ross, Carl Anthony Payne II, Missy Elliott, Salt, Evan Ross, Ashlee Simpson, Kandi Burruss and fiance Todd, Teyana Taylor, K. Michelle and cast members Drew Sidora, Lil Mama, and Keke Palmer were all in attendance.
Of course the remaining members of TLC, Chilli and T- Boz were there for the premiere which was held at the Lincoln Square’s AMC Loews. Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes maybe gone but she wasn’t forgotten and Gumbumper is reporting that Lisa’s sister, Reigndrop Lopes was also in attendance.
Even though “Left Eye” Lopes is no longer here we’re hearing that Lisa’s energetic spirit was felt, through not only her surviving TLC musical sisters, but through her sister Reigndrop Lopes who attended on behalf of the family, and through Lil Mama herself, who helped bring Left Eye back to life in film.
Other main cast members in attendance included Rochelle Aytes, who portrays the group’s former manager singer Perri “Pebbles” Reid. Carl Anthony Payne portrayed Laface Records head Antonio “LA” Reid”. Pebbles who in essence is the film’s “antagonist” was noticeably absent from the premiere and has not been involved in promotion of the film.
I love all of the support this movie is getting. TLC was one of the trendsetting groups of the 90’s that paved the way for a lot of female acts today. More photos below:
