TLC Touch Down at VH1 ‘Super Bowl Blitz’


It was a crazy, sexy, cool night in Manhattan on Thursday as TLC took over Beacon Theatre for VH1′s “Super Bowl Blitz: Six Nights + Six Concerts.” Following J. Cole in Queens and Janelle Monáe in the Bronx, T-Boz and Chilli performed an hour-long concert, which was streamed live online.

With some help from Doug E. Fresh, the best-selling female R&B group kicked off their spectacular set with “Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg.” Clad in orange jumpsuits, they performed hit after hit including “What About Your Friends,” “Silly Ho,” and “Diggin’ on You.”

While they changed outfits, Doug E. Fresh delivered a medley of “The Show,” “Lodo Dodi,” “Teach Me How to Dougie,” and “Freaks.”

T-Boz and Chilli dipped back into their expansive catalog with “Red Light Special,” “Creep,” “Unpretty,” and “No Scrubs,” while their diehard fans sang along to every word.

The Boys Choir of Harlem and ballet dancer Misty Copeland joined them onstage for the grand finale of “Waterfalls” and their latest single “Meant to Be.”

TLC’s Chilli Shows Her Stripes in PETA Ad

Chilli for PETA

Scrubs are not the only thing Chilli is saying no to. The TLC singer is taking a stand against circus cruelty in an ad for PETA. She sports stripes like a tiger as she poses in a cage for the campaign, entitled “Beaten, Lonely, and Abused: Boycott the Circus.” According to PETA, animals are forced to endure a lifetime of abuse and loneliness at the hands of the circus.

“There’s so much cruelty behind the scenes,” said Chilli. “They’re being mean to them to make them do this trick that everybody sees and thinks that the animal really wants to do it. And I think that everybody needs to be aware of what’s really going on.”

She is using her platform to make a difference. “I think it’s very important to use your celebrity for positive things,” she said. “If you can raise awareness to something that’s important such as this, then you should.”
