She could only watch in small doses. "I can't watch myself," she yelled one time. Most of the time she was live tweeting or walking around. She couldn't sit still. We on the other hand could not move. It is uncanny how much Lil Mama looked like Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopez. She did a great job and seems to have been born to play this part. According to Deadline, the biopic debuted to record ratings last night drawing 4.5 million viewers, making it the network's highest-rated telecast in more than five years. Deadline also reported that CrazySexyCool is the No. 1 original cable movie this year and was Monday night's most tweeted program. They even won the praises of Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes' sister, Reigndrop Lopes who praises Lil' Mama's performance. Check out the statement she wrote below.
"It would have been nice if Lisa's family would have been invited to take part in this journey of making the TLC movie. Honestly, I think it would have added depth to Lisa's on screen character. I think Lil Mama did a good job at portraying my sis. She did her homework and studied Lisa. As a fan, I know it was important for Lil Mama to represent Lisa correctly--and she did just that! Although the script didn't allow her to bring Lisa's true character to light. She did the best with what she had to work with. All the girls did a good job!"
