Enjoy some excerpts of the article penned by Mark Jacobs:
- TLC, the four-time Grammy-winning, 65-million-albums-selling R&B girl supergroup named for members Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, reclaimed the initials with the premiere of the VH1 original movie CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story and an accompanying greatest hits collection, 20, which delivered a new single, “Meant To Be.” Written by Ne-Yo, the song, according to Thomas, “sums up the whole 20 years of the relationship between the three of us and the ongoing relationship between T-Boz and myself.” As any true pop-culture enthusiast knows, this is no small feat.
- …“Lil Mama wore Lisa’s, because she was that size, but the other two girls are more top heavy, because, you know, we’re the tittiless crew, T-L-C, Titty-Less Crew, so those outfits had to be re-created,” explains Watkins, who admits to being shaken up while watching her life played out on set. “It was really, really weird. Especially with Lil Mama, because her real eyes are hazel and so they put these big, round black contacts in, like Lisa’s eyes. She looked up at me one time and I was like, ‘This is weird.’”
- “I don’t think you can ever have enough records about self-esteem and loving yourself and not taking no crap, especially females,” says Thomas. “That girl-power thing is just missing right now. And it’s not like we’re in the studio trying to make songs like this—we’re naturally like that, so it naturally comes. We’re still being who we are. And by saying that, it’s going to help a lot of people. And that’s all we care about. We want jams to make you jam but at the same time make you think.”
