Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Rihanna and TLC are at war, and Rihanna is winning

I don’t really understand why on earth women feel the need to throw other women under the bus. The slut-shaming, the hating… it’s just endless. Take TLC, for example – you know, the ’90s hip hop girl group who haven’t had a hit in about 10 years? Well, they have shit to say about Rihanna – mainly, about the fact that she’s sexy and confident in that sexiness and likes to play it up. Classic spiteful women bullshit.

As T.Boz from TLC recently told an Australian radio station:

“Every time I see you, you don’t have to be naked, It’s hard for us to say anything because any time we do, they say, ‘Oh, TLC must be jealous,’ but it is what it is. I call a spade a spade. We became the biggest selling girl group with our clothes on, and that says a lot. It’s easy to sell sex. We could go around with booby cakes all day long.”

Sorry, but I find it hard to take anyone who says “booby cakes” seriously. Also, I find it hard to take anyone who posed for this picture and then had the nerve to criticise Rihanna seriously:


LOL, yeah, okay.

Anyhow, Rihanna responded in classic Rihanna fashion: by throwing shade on Twitter. God, you’ve gotta love her. This whole thing is stupid and she probably should have just ignored it, but I understand the impulse to respond to such blatant haters.

  • I’m sorry, but i’m siding with TLC on this one. Women like Rhianna and Miley, for some odd reason, believe that sexualizing themselves is in some way “empowering” women…to me, that is a joke and is actually doing just the opposite. These women are basing their worth on their “fuckability”…meaning, they are worth more to society because more men want them for sex… showing us that THAT is all they are really worth. They are a series of holes to be enjoyed. I’m not into the whole “women’s movement” thing…but this sets women SO far back. When women have made themselves “objects”… that’s how they are treated. TLC really DID keep their clothes on and sold millions of records…and their music is still being played…and it’s GREAT. i don’t know…i guess they didn’t have to do that ’cause they really CAN sing…all Rhianna has her body.

  • I agree with TLC on this one I’m done with Riri and her t&a time for her to put clothes on it and let the music do the talking.

  • Yep, TLC all the way. Riri is a cheap HO. I am so glad my kids are grown, celebrities with there nipples at public events, cam girls in libraries… I feel for parents today.
