TLC's T-Boz and Chilli Slam Rihanna For Showing Her Breasts, Being "Naked" -- Rihanna Fires Back!
Can't win 'em all! Rihanna showed up at the annual Council of Fashion Designers of America awards on Monday, June 2, in New York City, baring her breasts and butt in a sheer gown which naturally had everybody talking. While some complimented the singer on her unique style, others felt it was inappropriate—especially '90s girl group TLC.
During an interview with Channel 7's Sunrise, a morning show in Australia, the remaining members of the group, Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas, slammed the "Diamonds" singer for always being "naked."
"Every time I see you, you don't have to be naked," T-Boz said about RiRi. "We became the biggest selling girl group of all time with our clothes on and that says a lot," Chilli added.
And the "No Scrubs" singers didn't stop there. "We could go around too with booby cakes out all day long," Chilli went on, addressing the singer's Adam Selman dress she donned the evening she also took home the 2014 Fashion Icon award at the CFDA awards.
"It’s hard for us to say anything because any time we do, they say ‘Oh TLC must be jealous,’ but I call a spade a spade,” T-Boz said.
In another interview with the Sydney Morning Herald, T-Boz added: "At the end of the day the music speaks for itself, you don't have to take your clothes off if your music is great."
26-year-old Rihanna didn't stay mum. Drake's ex tweeted on June 5, simply: "When there's no changing the fact that I'm me, and they're well...they're them." In a less discreet manner, Rihanna also changed the banner on her Twitter background to a picture of TLC posing topless, with only their hands covering their breasts. Touché.
