The original “C” of TLC, Crystal Jones, isn’t too pleased with the way she was portrayed in VH1’s hit made-for-TV movie CrazySexyCool.
“I was very disappointed, very disappointed,” she told Atlanta’s V-103 radio station. “The way they portrayed me was very inaccurate and it brought up a lot of memories that I kind of put to rest. To relive it again just didn’t sit well with me.”
In the film, Crystal’s involvement with the group was reduced to about 10 minutes. She’s seen practically discovering T-Boz and Left Eye and then introducing them to Pebbles, who later decides she doesn’t have the vocal skills to join the group.
“Absolutely not,” Crystal said about the way the story is told in the movie.
“If I sing that bad then why would you offer me a contract?” she asked, offering a different version of how things went down.
