This week, TLC's T-Boz and Chilli clarified what happened when they allegedly made negative comments about Rihanna [2]. In a recent interview with Australia's Sunrise, T-Boz made a reference to frequent nudity, saying, "Every time I see you, you don't have to be naked. And it's hard for us to say anything because every time we say something, 'Oh TLC, oh they must be jealous.'" A picture of Rihanna [3] was shown, and then T-Boz was seen adding, "I call a spade a spade. We became the biggest-selling girl group of all time with our clothes on, and that says a lot. It's easy to sell sex." Now, T-Boz says that none of her comments were made in connection to Rihanna [4].

After the interview was posted last week, Rihanna responded by changing her Twitter cover photo to a picture of the TLC girls topless, following it up with a series of tweets that shared exactly how she felt about the comments. T-Boz later tweeted that she never mentioned Rihanna's name, and this week, she said it was a matter of editing, adding that she never saw the singer's CFDA look. Watch both interviews and see Rihanna's Twitter reactions below.
