A few weeks ago, it was announced that Lil Mama snagged the role to play Left Eye in the upcoming VH1 production of a biopic for the hit group TLC. Yesterday, it was announced that Keke Palmer and Drew Sidora were selected to play Chilli and T-Boz.
Fans and bloggers went buzerk after finding out the news and saying that Keke looks nothing like Chilli so she shouldn't play the role and what not. So my girl Keke wasn't having it. Home girl took to Twitter to shut the world up. Check out what she had to say below.
People kill me, I don’t remember Angela Bassett looking ANYTHING like Tina Turner. And she RIPPED that role. People need to realize hat movies aren’t casted by people looking like who they’re playing. They’re casted by who can do the role.
I don’t know about you, but I would much rather see a movie that is well acted, then a movie with a bunch of look a like’s. Cause Ben Affleck isn’t even Hispanic, but the man he played in Argo IS. I shouldn’t play the part because my baby hair isn’t the perfect texture?. Goodnight Twitter, goodnight.
And that's that! I agree 100% with her. Since when do you have to look like someone to be cast in a biopic? Her example were perfect becuause Angela Bassett looked nothing like Tina Turner in What's Love Got To Do With It. Also, if that was the case Aretha Franklin would be going aroundd telling people she wants Hally Berry to play her in a biopic.....a FOOL!
Do you think she's fit for the role? Comment below.
