Rap-Up TV: Love Dollhouse Talks Debut, TLC, & Dream Collaborations

The ladies of Love Dollhouse are ready to take on the world. As the first act signed to Russell Simmons and Steve Rifkind’s label All Def Music, the teen trio—comprised of Chelsea, Ryan, and Jasmine—recently dropped their summertime single “Can I” and is readying their debut album with help from Claude Kelly, The Stereotypes, and Kadis & Sean.

Rap-Up TV caught up with the Detroit natives during a recent trip to L.A., where they dished on their music, inspirations, and dream collaborations.

“‘Can I’ is basically putting a girl in a guy’s perspective,” said Ryan of the group’s Claude Kelly-penned single. “They’re taking control of the relationship. It’s so fun. It’s funky, it’s groovy, it makes you dance.”

While they’ve been inspired by everyone from Aaliyah to Prince, the girls have drawn comparisons to R&B groups like Destiny’s Child and TLC.

“We definitely look up to TLC,” said Ryan. “We have no problem with us being compared to them. We still wanna make our own stamp, of course.”

They also shared their dream collaborations—Jasmine would love to work with Missy Elliott, Chelsea hopes to snag Snoop Dogg, and Ryan is an Ariana Grande fan.

When they’re not in the studio, you can find the shopping addicts at the mall or the local amusement park.

Get to know R&B’s hottest new girl group and watch the video for “Can I” below.

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.”

Go behind the scenes of her ad below.
