Published Jun 06, 2014Following recent comments TLC made about pop queen Rihanna's nudity-approving image, the pop queen has delivered a little tit for tat by posting a vintage skin-revealing shot of the band on her Twitter account.
The cover image on the singer's Twitter is currently set to an old promo shot of TLC in which both T-Boz and Chilli are shirtless, covering their breasts with their hands. The upload is apparently in response to a recent interview that surviving members T-Boz and Chilli did with Sunrise Australia to promote their first-ever Down Under tour, in which the group criticized singers that use sex to sell their brand. Though the pair never mention Rihanna by name, the program infers that this is specifically targeted at RiRi.
"Every time I see you, you don't have to be naked," T-Boz said. "And it's hard for us to say anything 'cause anytime we say something, it's, 'TLC, oh they must be jealous!' First of all, let me say this. It is what it is. I call a spade a spade, OK?"
She added: "We sold and became the biggest girl selling group of all time, with our clothes on. That says a lot. It's easy to sell sex. We can go around with boobie cakes out all day long."
In addition to the vintage pic posting, Rihanna posted another light-hearted response:
When there's no changing the fact that I'm me, and they're well...they're them. pic.twitter.com/RCF4TqxN69— Rihanna (@rihanna) June 6, 2014
TLC have not responded to Rihanna's tongue-in-cheek comeback.
