TLC Slams Rihanna for Nudity, Rihanna Fires Back

Rihanna vs. TLC

Not everyone is a fan of Rihanna’s revealing outfits. TLC has criticized the “Diamonds” singer for being overtly sexual, and Rihanna is not taking it lightly.

Following a sold-out show in Sydney on their first Australian tour, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas were asked about sexed-up pop stars like Rihanna, who recently made headlines for her nearly-nude gown at the CFDA Awards.

“Everytime I see you, you don’t have to be naked,” T-Boz told Channel Seven’s “Sunrise.” “And it’s hard for us to say anything ’cause anytime we say anything, ‘Ooh, TLC. They must be jealous.’”

T-Boz continued, “First of all, it is what it is. I call a spade a spade. We’ve sold and became the biggest girl-selling group of all time with our clothes on. That says a lot. It’s easy to sell sex. We can go around with booby cakes out all day long.”

Rihanna got word of the interview and clapped back on Twitter. “When there’s no changing the fact that I’m me, and they’re well…they’re them,” she tweeted along with a photo of her sticking her tongue out.

She also changed her Twitter header to an old image of the “No Scrubs” hitmakers posing topless.

T-Boz went on the defense after being attacked by Rihanna fans on social media. “Last time I checked I didn’t say no bodies name the interview lady did shit I’m out of the country lol I didn’t even see pics,” she said. “how did I get dragged in2 talkin about some1 I like I don’t care what my opinion is I’m gonna say what I want at least get what I say right.”

Just last month, Rihanna got into a Twitter feud with Charlie Sheen after the singer reportedly refused to meet with the actor and his fiancée at an L.A. restaurant.

    @Baby cakes, Rihanna is a great S̶i̶n̶g̶e̶r̶entertainer but she is so childish for stuff like this, and so is anyone else who praises this buffoonery and foolishness

    @Baby cakes, This image was taken in the 90’s TLC was popular and were considered feminist Icons even this picture was taken to promote awareness of breast cancer. But Rihannas pack of feminist and insecure fans that worship her for her beauty, sassy and feisty demeanor and such that teen fans and adult fans seem to admire probably acknowledge this and won’t admit that she’s can be a real jerk.

    TC. You’re a bunch of hypo–s. If I remember correctly, yall were sporting bras and pants throughout your entire career.

    @Major Sushi, you dumbass bitch! All the girls in TLC were petite! They’re all smaller than Rih & her HUGE thighs and her ginormous forehead! They wore baggy clothes because that was the style in 90′s! TLC sold music with their bodies covered cuz they could sell their music on their talent alone. They didn’t need to use sex to sell like Rih slut!

    @Sam, A brassiere is a brassiere. They say they didn’t ‘sell sex’ but only music. A girl dancing in a bra and wearing her boyfriend’s baggy pants sounds pretty sexual.

    Well…. the Rihtard Navy can get mad all they want but TLC is right! Rihanna constantly uses her body for attention and sells sex to her impressionable young fans. She is a classless attention whore and a HORRIBLE role model for young girls. TLC became the highest selling girl of time with their clothes on! If you have talent you don’t have to take your clothes off all the time. ☕️

    T-Boz and Chilli are desperate and need the money…that’s the only reason they’re doin’ that tour.

    To me (and many others), TLC died with Left Eye…I wish they’d just let it REST IN PEACE already and get to their solo careers!

    Very hypocritical of TLC.

    Before I even read the article, I thought about how many sexualized images of TLC we’ve seen over the years, and how raunchy some their lyrics were.

    C’mon girls. Let Rihanna live.

    @EL,
    lyrics and walking down the red carpet topless is 2 different things obviously riri knew it was the truth because if it wasn’t she wouldn’t have responded riri needs to do better she has to many lil girls watching her and last i checked besides that one photo ive NEVER seen any member of TLC topless ive seen ri topless more than a handful of times.

    I HONESTLY don’t believe that TLC directed this at rihanna. They never said her name and the news stations is out to get ratings. This was a general statment. But in today’s Highschool society we shoot first and ask questions later. Rihanna should just look into something before attacking; it’s childish and sure she has a army of million Tweens now but in years to come she will see how unnecessary all this is

    @Free, Very well said!! But you can’t tell Rihanna’s childish ass fans anything. They are all clearly immature like their Queen.

    Empress Reply:

    @Free, I agree, this wasn’t aimed at anyone in particular BUT usually those that take offense and get defensive are the people guilty of what the statement is condeming. If she felt that she wasn’t in the wrong why even justify them with a response?! Obbviously she doesn’t feel that she’s all in the clear!!!

    lmaoAtHaters Reply:

    @Free, exactly! I dont understand why Rih is being so defensive. If a person throws subliminal shots excuse them until they say ur name. Its not worth getting all worked up unless you are insecure.

  9. Kyle

    As much as I love TLC, I believe that it was quite hypocritical of T-Boz to say that. Yes, Rihanna flaunts her body more than her talent but TLC had their moments as well. I’m dying laughing at that picture that Rihanna changed her background to. HAHAHA!

  10. KEN.

    Her rants yesterday was so immature and embarrassing.
    Her calling them “old thots” was so wrong , it’s not like they disrespected her nor did they even mention her name in the first place.

    I’m guessing she didn’t watch the interview because they were talking about the majority of pop-stars but Drag them I guess.

  14. ALWAYSTRILL

    Look! They were clearly throwing shots. Lets stop acting like they weren’t. I’m pretty sure Sunrise threw Rihanna in the mix for a reason.(Cause that’s who they were most likely speaking about behind the scenes.) But, regardless of who TLC was speaking of, someone need to put them in their place. Rih-Rih just was that person. :)

    these celebs are jealous asf. Why everyone attacking Rihanna? As yourself that? Rihanna is not the only person who uses sex to sell. Jacket, Madonna, Mariah, Beyoncé have all been half naked their entire career but ppl act like Rihanna invented naked. They are all jealous. She is where everyone wants to be and because of it they pick her apart.

    @meme,The difference is that all those ppl u listed actually have talent(unlike Rihanna) and don’t rely on those things. Rihanna flaunts her sex appeal and nudity on stage and off stage

    TLC would destroy Rhianna all they did was stated a opinion Rhianna shouldn’t take it to heart like that. If Left Eye was alive I reckon Left Eye would of had a lot to say about it all. Just stating my own opinion don’t like it tough

    I’m on team TLC with this one because they didn’t say any names. Obviously websites started putting rihannas name in it because this is what Rihanna constantly does, and Rihanna herself must feel self conscious about what she’s doing because she’s the only one out of all of the celebrities that are always naked to get so upset!!!!

    RiRi wins, as much as i love TLC (TC now) they done, i’m sorry but that’s the truth. PPL STILL TALKING ABOUT DESTINY CHILD BUT NOT TLC. And they say the biggest female group of all time? TLC was not the same generation even if they didn’t took their close off, they selling sex too “Ain’t 2 proud 2 beg” “Silly Hoe” “Creep” “Red Light Special” They had a theme and it was all about sex. Do you see Beyoncé talking about Rihanna’s ass? NO, bc she’s better than her, and she don’t have the mf time. TLC should do the time.

    Sad pathetic silly superficial generation …What else did TLC expect?
    When TLC promotes safe sex(while people were dying of AIDS) most of those Gaga’s , Rihanna’s Beyonce’s could barely walk or talk(Not that they got better with time).
    This copy paste generation has no idea of what they are being served…Time will tell!
    This is even not worth discussing on this page.
    Reading your comments just confirms what I said:

    Really, TLC is legendary period! they have made their mark on music culture regardless of any ones opinion off them. I agree Ri Ri have sold sex her entire career but at the same time most pop stars do to get noticed. this generation is screw up anyway in order for you to become famous you got to sell something this is the music industry people pay attention.
    I actually love both of them but ya’ll know pretty soon ri ri will get old and other pop stars will follow after them.

    First off I love TLC and there music, but It’s not a good look for other artist to bash on and some what hate on what other artist are doing. Especially if your not as relevant as you used to be. Secondly Rihanna is Rihanna and she doing what she wanna do so I respect that 100%. It’s 2014 so everybody need get over this whole anti nudity thing and be adults about. Some people want to show more skin then others don’t hate if your not comfortable with your body….. If you don’t want your kids mocking what they see then that’s your job as a parent!! But like I said I Love me some TLC & I love me some Rihanna at the end of the day its all entertainment!
