T-Boz & Chili Honor Left Eye + Talks Upcoming TV Biopic, New Music & Tour
Today marks the 10th anniversary of Left Eye’s passing and her TLC group members T-Boz and Chili have released a statement honoring her legacy:
“The word anniversary means a celebration. For us her death will never be a celebration, it’s still something that hurts,” says T-Boz. Group member Chilli agrees, “Lisa is our sister. You never get over losing a family member. We love her and we miss her and that isn’t ever going to change.”
The duo (
who failed at trying to replace her) are also ( desperate from money off her legacy) excited to share news about the new movie chronicling their rise to stardom:
2012 is also the 20th anniversary for the group and is filled with many surprises for TLC fans worldwide. Chilli and T-Boz are very excited to be executive-producing a biopic on the group’s story in conjunction with VH1. “This project is truly a dream come true for us,” says Chilli. ‘What’s Love Got To Do With It’ scribe Kate Lanier will pen the project, which documents TLC’s rise to fame with 1991′s “Ooooooohhh… On The TLC Tip” and their follow-up success with 1994′s “CrazySexyCool,” and eventually selling more than 65 million albums worldwide making them the biggest-selling girl group in history.
In addition to the movie, TLC is working on a 20th anniversary package which will include tour dates, an album project with new music and several remixes on some of their favorite hits. Chilli and T-Boz say they are looking forward to giving new music to their eagerly awaiting fans and returning to the stage.
I hope the movie represents Left Eye in a good light. I know the group had it’s share of bad times. But coming out of it with 65 million records sold, I’m sure they had so many more good times.
And, about this tour … hmm …
