TLC says they were set up in a recent interview that caused Rihanna to snap back and call them ‘Old Thots’ on Twitter.
In case you missed it, last week, a video was released which showed T-Boz making comments about young artists not having to expose their bodies. T-Boz said, ‘You don’t have to be naked’ while a clip of Rihanna ran which made it appear as though the group was talking about her and the see-through dress she wore to the CFDA Awards.
In a new interview with Yahoo! Music, T-Boz and Chilli say nowhere in the interview did they mention Rih’s name, although the interview was edited to make it appear that way. They also advised Rihanna, or any artist, to man up the next time they have a problem with them rather then igniting Twitter beefs because they’re way too grown for that.
As for Rihanna posting photos of them topless, TLC explains that it was all part of a breast cancer awareness campaign and that they’ve never done anything that didn’t have an empowering meaning behind it.
