With less than a week until VH1’s Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story premieres, Chilli and T-Boz stopped by the Breakfast Club to dish on past financial issues under Pebbles’ management and plans to get back on the music scene, and why they decided to do the film. The pair also discussed the casting for the movie, particularly plucking Lil’ Mama fort the role of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, and the negative attention she received.
“First of all this is my thing, It just gets on my nerves that people would hold one thing she did,” Chilli said about the “Lip Gloss” rapper’s surprise cameo during Jay Z and Alicia Keys’ 2009 MTV VMA performance. “She didn’t do a Kanye West. She didn’t go up there and snatch a mic and be disrespectful. She was just standing on stage. Who cares? Get over it.”
The interview transitioned into the the ladies’ past and present relationships, prompting the morning crew to ask Chilli if she would ever date Usher again. Check out the full interview above and watch their medley performance on Good Morning America below and stay tuned for the premiere of the TLC Story on Monday, Oct. 21 at 9PM ET/PT on VH1.
