The "TLC Biopic" is about to start filming....and the cast has just been announced.  Check out who's playing the roles of the girl group who brought us color, controversy and great music inside....

T-Boz, Chilli and Left Eye will be getting a VH1 movie made about their lives and group's rise to fame.

It was reported recently that rapper Lil Mama will be taking on the role of Left Eye in the upcoming TLC Biopic that will air on VH1.  And that decision was met with controversy and petitions to stop the "Lipgloss" rapper from officially nabbing the role.  But oh wells, she's in it.

And today, it was just announced that KeKe Palmer, former Nickelodeon star in "True Jackson VP" and Lifetime's "The Carlina White Story," will be joining the cast in the role of Chilli. 

Apparently people are already complaining, saying she looks nothing like Chilli.  KeKe responded on her Twitter today saying:

People kill me, I don't remember Angela Bassett looking ANYTHING like Tina Turner. And she RIPPED that role...People need to realize that movies aren't casted by people looking like who they're playing. They're casted by who can do the role.

KeKe has also been working on her singing career lately, dropping a mixtape this past October, her debut studio back in 2007, and doing a few songs for the shows she's appeared in.  And the 19-year-old says she's been a fan of TLC since she was a little girl.  She said about growing up loving the group:

"I would sing No Scrubs over and over again to the point my parents would have to tell me to stop, but I never did, I had my little hairbrush as my mic and nobody could tell me I wasn't the fourth member of TLC."

And she's indeed aware that fans will drag this movie through the mud if it's not made right.  The Akilah & The Bee actress said in her press release:

"I am a true fan. I love these ladies and I always want to be proud of my work in any role that I do".

The upcoming VH1 TLC biopic to be filmed in Atlanta, GA next month. And we hear that singer/"The Game" actress Drew Sidora has filled the role of T-Boz.

Are we feelin' this?

*UPDATE* VH1 has confirmed all three actresses for the bipoic in a press release on 2/19.  It will be called “CRAZY, SEXY, COOL: THE TLC STORY” and Chilli and T-Boz have signed on as consultants.

The Randomness: 

1.  Since this weekend is all about basketball--Happy 50th Birthday to Michael JordanCharles Barkley turned the big 5-0 this upcoming Wednesday.

2.  Mary J. Blige just got hit with a third tax lien--this one for $900K. STORY

Pacific Girl, Keke does not

Pacific Girl, Keke does not NEED cosmetic surgery, people post stupid lies and as if they are the truth, how would you like it if people said lies about you, she is a black girl with FULL lips , why do you feel the need to make it be sensational, like her or not, but don't lie and make stuff up to make yourself feel good, the girl takes a photo and people make up stuff so they feel better about themselves, what sad lonely lives you must lead, look in the mirror and comment on yourselves

Does TLC need a biopic? Left

Does TLC need a biopic? Left Eye dated a womanizing football player burned down his house RIP, T-Boz with her rapper baby daddy and illnesses, Chili f'n the producer to have a baby to heal herself from her abortion and can't find a man. They wanted no scrubs, went chasing waterfalls, creeped and filed bankruptcy. What did I miss?

I like you Keke but I don't

I like you Keke but I don't see you as Chilli. They should have picked Keyshia Knight Pulliam for Chilli, and Left Eye's actual sister to play her because they look identical. I guess they wanted younger women, but it's still not a good look.

Are you serious Keyshia

Are you serious Keyshia Knight Pulliam is 34 years old, that's a bit too old

I honestly don't mind KeKe as

I honestly don't mind KeKe as Chili. At least she's a legitimate actress. But I will never watch this film if Lil' Mama plays Left Eye. Why would I inflict such punishment on myself?

I loved TLC

I loved TLC back-in-the-day...especially when Left Eye was burning down people's houses and T-Boz caught Lupus and the Scurvy!!!!!!!! But this movie is gonna be a "career" ender for all actors involved. Leprechaun In Tha Hood #4 is better than this idea..........Lil Mama???? Really??????????? She looks 97 years old...............

being that TLC was in their

being that TLC was in their prime in their late teens and early 20's I am not mad at the young casting. that is how it is supposed to be. I will hold off on further judgement until I see a trailer. But a good look for Keke.

People are so negative. KeKe

People are so negative. KeKe Palmer is is one of the best young actresses of this generation... And she looks more like Chilli than Lil Mama and Drew look like T-Boz and Left Eye. But it doesn't matter, they are all capable of killing this movie (in a good way.) People just want to complain.
