Prepare to twist your face into a “What the hell?” squint, because Lil Mama is set to play the role of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes in the upcoming TLC biopic. Two questions:
1. Why is Lil Mama still working?
2. Why is there a TLC biopic? (I mean, CrazySexyCool was classic and all, but really?)
The casting news was revealed by MC Lyte, who described Lil Mama to Hip Hollywood as a “talented lady whose chances were cut short”. Uh, cut short by what, her crashing the stage at the MTV VMAs in 2009? I don’t see it, but okay. Here’s the full quote, anyway:
“I’m gonna put a little bit of concentration and focus on helping to uplift a sister, who is talented, smart, witty, and just had her chances cut too short and that’s Lil Mama, ’cause she is a talented young lady. So I want to see her do some beautiful things.”
The only beautiful thing I can see Lil Mama doing is retiring, but maybe that’s just me. I just hope they put Left Eye burning up her ex-man Andre Rison’s tennis shoes and his entire mansion in the TLC movie. That alone would be worth the ticket price.
