Rihanna Ends Ridiculous Twitter War with TLC With Best Slam Ever

RihannaA few days ago, Rihanna took some heat for showing up basically naked to the CFDA awards. Well, I mean, she wore some Swarovski crystals held together by a little bit of sheer mesh, and some sort of head scarf, and maybe even shoes (did anyone look for shoes, or did they all get blinded by nipples?), but that's about it.

Two people who had an issue with the way RiRi dressed were T-Boz and Chilli from the girl group TLC. They were on an Australian morning show recently called Sunrise, and they went off on their colleague for her risque clothing (or lack thereof) choices.

Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins said, "Every time I see you, you don't have to be naked." Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas added, "We became the biggest selling girl group of all time with our clothes on and that says a lot."


It went on. "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," T-Boz said. In another interview with the Sydney Morning Herald, T-Boz continued, "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."

Rihannawasn't about to take that crap. She'll be nekkid if she wants to, thankyouverymuch, and if you've ever promoted yourself publicly in a similar fashion, God help you if you judge her.

The superstar singer didn't have to do anything to respond to the TLC except tweet, "When there's no changing the fact that I'm me, and they're well...they're them."

Oh, and change her banner on her Twitter background to a picture of TLC posing topless, using only their hands to cover their breasts.

Rihanna -- 1, TLC -- 0. Sorry ladies.

Do you think Rihanna's comback was brilliant?

So I guess TLC is trying to sell something?

Twitter has made adults into babies fighting for attention. That dress was the most immature cry for attention I've ever seen in my life, Rihanna would have known it was stupid if she'd bothered to think about for a second and people should be allowed to say that it was stupid.

Yeah...I just don't think Rihanna gives a s**t...I guarantee she walked into the showroom, said "Oooh sparkly!! I must adorn my ridiculous body with crystals and everyone will talk about it"...and what do you know? Hate to say it, but I give her props for the bravery AND audacity to put herself out there...again...I don't like her much, but you can't deny that the bitch knows EXACTLY what she's doing...staying relevant by being naked...with crystals on her nipples...

TLC wore condems all over their clothes and made songs called "Let's Talk About Sex" I understand that they are older now and still trying to drag out their fame but come on do they really have room to talk bad about how someone dresses?????

luvmy... luvmybubs

Uh Jan Salt & pepa sang letsvtalk about sex. Different group. The condoms were about promoting safe sex that is quite different than using your body to make everyone talk about you. It worked though she was on no ones radar til she came out naked and bejeweled.
