Rihanna TLC Clash

TLC Slams Rihanna For Using Sex To Sell Records

T-Bozz and Chilli from TLC blasted Rihanna for the sheer gown she wore at the CDFA Awards June 2. In the lead up to their Australian tour, TLC sat down with Sunrise Breakfast TV to talk about their long career within the music industry and shared their views on some of today’s biggest music stars. During the interview, T-Bozz and Chilli made some less than flattering comments about Rihanna’s sexually suggestive image. 

“You know what Madonna did [first] … but right now its like a domino effect, everybody seems to be doing that because it gets so much attention. People are usually followers, it’s rare that you have leaders who switch the game up and do something totally different. So you have all these followers, all of them doing the same thing as a result … posting half-naked pictures of themselves on Twitter and Instagram – it’s just crazy, almost like you are dying for attention. I think it will take more artists not doing it, it’s as simple as that. 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 and you have a great image to support that it’s definitely a win:win. It’s crazy to think that to have someone keep their clothes on would be refreshing. “It’s easier for boy bands. You find one or two guys that can really sing and if they are cute and have a six pack they’ve got [thousands of] fans. It’s different for women, most of us don’t want to show off our bodies all the time.”

Rihanna took to Twitter to respond to TLC's comments and changed her Twitter header to the below image of TLC. Shade! Check it out below:
