While most of us would say, “stay out of it” when it comes to children getting caught up in the squabbles of their parents, it’s kind of hard to keep your mouth shut when people personally attack or try to embarrass your mother. Just ask T-Boz’s 13-year-old daughter, Chase.
We told you late last week that during an interview, T-Boz and Chilli were asked their thoughts on today’s artists running around half-naked all the time. T-Boz said this:
“Every time I see you, you don’t have to be naked. It’s easy to sell sex.” She also acknowledged that people would probably take her comments as jealousy, but she says that they’re far from jealous: “It’s hard for us to say anything because any time we do, they say ‘Oh TLC must be jealous’ but I call a spade a spade.”
Chilli also chimed in to say “We became the biggest girl selling group of all time with our clothes on and that says a lot. We could go around too with booby cakes [breasts] out all day long.”
Of course, Rihanna responded with some very interesting pictures, including a photo of T-Boz and Chilli topless (which she used as her background on Twitter all Friday), and this one:
Of course, T-Boz would later say on Twitter that she was speaking generally about young women in music today and their penchant for dressing in very little (though she defended Miley Cyrus’ half-naked behavior in the past), not speaking directly about Rihanna.
After chatting with T-Boz in the past for MN, I can say that she’s a pretty straight shooter when it comes to her opinion, and it seems that her daughter is the same. Someone asked Chase how she felt about Rihanna posting the pictures that she did, and calling her mother an “old thot” on Twitter for her millions of followers, and she made it clear that one pic of her mom compared to Rihanna’s entire career of being underdressed is not the same thing. This is what she said through her Ask. Fm account:
Twitter user TheJoLo_ posted Chase’s comments and gave props to T-Boz for raising an intelligent daughter. T-Boz responded to her saying this:
What do you think about what Chase had to say about Rihanna’s comments? Did she make a good point or should she have stayed out of that mess?
