Rihanna retaliates by posting a less than flattering picture of the girl group for something they didn't even say.
Don’t piss off Rihanna or she’ll dig in the archives to prove you a hypocrite.
On June 6, 2014, Rihanna took to Twitter to express outrage at TLC’s comments about selling sex instead of music in an interview with Sunrise Australia.
Host David Koch implies the five-time Grammy winning group “singled out Rihanna” because of her methods for selling product. T-Boz’s voice is heard saying “Every time I see you, you don’t have to be naked” over Rihanna’s “Where Have You Been.”
Timing may be part of the problem since Rihanna recently appeared at the 2014 CDFA Awards in a barely there dress where little was left to the imagination all areas. The entertainment industry’s still whispering and discussing the nipple-revealing twist on Old Hollywood style.
In retaliation, the Caribbean songstress posted an image of TLC posing with their hands over their “boobie cakes,” as T-Boz calls them, along the message “When there’s no changing the fact I’m me, and they’re well…they’re them.” Twitter and social media starting blogging and responding furiously, but it may not be what it seems.
Shade's been thrown at the wrong partner, reports Kelson for 93.9 WKYS FM in "Disrespectful: Rihanna Calls TLC Some 'Old Thots.'"
The Urban Informer reminds the internet that Rihanna's actions are based on gossip and media instead of facts.
When T-Boz found out about the diss, she quickly put Sunrise Australia on blast via Twitter. "At least get what I say right. Last time I checked, I didn't say no bodies name."
Still annoyed and a tiny bit furious, the "Unpretty" singer kept going. "The interview lady did shit. I'm out of the country. I didn't even see pics." The pics are referencing Rihanna's dress.
If you believe the singer, this becomes something Sunrise Australia fabricated and the internet picked up and ran with in a matter of moments.
Assuming TLC never named names, that means Rihanna's going on gossip and looking for attention. Not a new move for the songstress. However, it also means she didn't bother to watch the short 2:42 minute clip uploaded on YouTube.
Fans, stans, and critics alike are blowing up over something that never even happened. Rihanna may be willing to fight back, but perhaps a better look at the real detractors might be in order.
And calling them thots as a sign of deep disrespect means that Kelson's initial question reminds unanswered for the "Diamonds" singer: "whatever happened to respecting the ones that came before/opened doors for you?"
