Rihanna Strikes back at TLC, but it backfires on her

By  |  0 Comments

Rihanna was clearly offended after being called out by the legendary singers of TLC for wearing a see-through dress and then twerking in front of the cameras.

According to, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas spoke against Rihanna’s image and her poor job as a role model.

T-Boz and Chilli were among those who felt it was inappropriate, and they voiced their concern in an interview with an Australian media station.  T-Boz directed her comments at Rihanna stating: “Every time I see you, you don’t have to be naked.  It’s hard for us to say anything because anytime we do, they say, ‘Oh TLC must be jealous,’ but I call a spade a spade.”  Chilli voice her opinion as well stating: “We became the biggest selling group of all time with our clothes on and that says a lot.  We could go around too with booby cakes out all day long.”

It didnt’ take long for Rihanna to come back at the duo, posting a picture of the two topless with their “good parts” covered by only their hands.  The singer felt that she’d struck a mighty blow at TLC and proven her point that the pot was effectively calling the kettle black.

But the people who advised Rihanna to put the picture up had obviously not done their homework.  The images were not taken in order to sell records.  Actually, they were taken as part of a breast cancer awareness campaign.  So, it appears that the strike that Rihanna felt that she’d laid on these women was actually another embarrassment for herself.

What do you think? Does TLC have a right to be critical of Rihanna or should they keep their mouths shut?

TLC was a group that took their positions as role models very seriously.  In this interview in 1996, they speak about the thrill of being the best-selling female group of all time.  But they also speak about the importance of being role models for all of the little girls who look up to them.
