This week, TLC's T-Boz and Chilli clarified what happened when they allegedly made negative comments about Rihanna. 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 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.

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.

First, TLC made these comments.

Then, Rihanna made this her Twitter cover photo.

Bonus points for the Kanye West profile picture.

She's not that witty - she's got someone writing her tweets for her

honestly, TLC makes a good point. Yes, the award-winning girl band has had some scandalous photos too, but that doesn't overshadow Rihanna's constant over-exposure of nearly naked videos and Award show cameos. I love TLC's music, as well as Rihanna's, but constant almost-nudity is all Rihanna and it needs to be toned down a bit.
