Along with the Zoe Saldana selection to play Nina Simone being criticized, Keke Palmer’s selection to play Chilli of TLC is being criticized because she doesn’t look enough like the singer. Palmer says “I don’t remember Angela Bassett looking like Tina Turner. Movies aren’t cast because people look like who they’re playing but because they can do the role.” Critics say Keke’s hair isn’t enough like Chilli’s. VH1 is producing the movie Crazy, Sexy, Cool: The TLC Story. Lil Mama plays Left Eye and Drew Sidora plays T Boz.
