Rihanna takes offense to comments made by Chilli & T-Boz
In a classic case of "young people nowadays...," the remaining members of TLC (Chilli & T-Boz) have taken aim at younger pop stars who use sexually suggestive images to draw attention to themselves on social media.
"You know what Madonna did it [first] ... but right now its like a domino effect, everybody seems to be doing that because it gets so much attention," said Chilli in an interview with Channel 7's Sunrise in Australia. "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."
"Every time I see you you don’t have to be naked," T-Boz added. "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."
"We became the biggest girl selling group of all time with our clothes on and that says a lot,’ Chilli chimed in.
Rihanna, while not mentioned by name, took offense to the duo's comments, responding to the interview on Twitter:

She also changed her Twitter header image to TLC posing topless in the prime of their career (photo included in the gallery above).
Expect a response from Chilli & T-Boz to arrive soon.
