Rihanna Calls Out TLC Over Nudity Comments


Rihanna has taken a swipe at the surviving stars of girl group TLC after they warned today’s young female pop singers not to strip off for a career boost.

Rozonda ‘Chilli’ Thomas and Tionne ‘T-Boz’ Watkins, who formed the band with late member Lisa ‘Left Eye’ Lopes, have spoken out to criticize current chart stars who appear to flaunt their sexuality in order to get ahead, insisting they achieved superstar status in the 1990s without baring all.

Thomas told the Sydney Morning Herald, “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, ” while Watkins told the Sydney Daily Telegraph, “We’re not raggin’ on (criticizing) the girls who choose to do that, we just want girls to know you don’t have to do that, it’s not the only way. You don’t have to be naked, you can just sing.”

Rihanna, who is known for her provocative music videos and revealing outfits, now appears to have hit back at the singers over the comments by posting an old photo on her page showing TLC posing topless.

The photo, which Rihanna has splashed as her banner on the social networking website, shows Watkins and Thomas covering their breasts with their hands.

The Umbrella star also added a picture of herself pulling a funny face and wrote in a post, “When there’s no changing the fact that I’m me, and they’re well… they’re them.”

This comes just days after Rihanna appeared at a fashion event in New York wearing a sheer gown which showed off her bare breasts and butt.
