Rihanna is not one to be messed with. During an interview this week, members of the '90s hit R&B group TLC slammed the 26-year-old for her fashion choices, which often reveal just about everything. Members T-Boz and Chilli, who are set to perform in Sydney, did an interview with Australia’s HSV-7.
While talking about female artists selling sex, T-Boz targeted Rihanna, saying, “Every time I see you, you don’t have to be naked. It’s easy to sell sex … 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.” Clearly, Rihanna was not going to go down without a fight, and took to Twitter to attack the girl group.

She changed her background photo to an image of the women, Left Eye included, who tragically passed away in a car accident in 2002. The photo shows the women half-naked and covering their chests with their hands while smiling. T-Boz and Chilli have yet to respond to the apparent diss.
Rihanna also sent out this tweet.

Their comments come after Rihanna wore a custom Adam Selman sheer gown adorned with more than 200,000 Swarovski crystals, and little else, to the CFDA Awards earlier this week in New York. She paired the look with a matching head scarf and gloves. While she didn't cover her chest with pasties, she did wear a beige thong to show some kind of modesty.
And the TLC members are not the only ones to criticize Rihanna’s fashion choices. This week, talk show host Wendy Williams offered her opinion on the singer’s daring outfit during her television program. While she commended Rihanna on her terrific body, Williams said, “As far as I’m concerned, she’s totally inappropriate for walking out of the house with this outfit on.” The audience seemed to agree, as mostly everyone clapped.
“You know this is the kind of outfit that when you invite all your friends over and you’re hosting your down-low sex party, then you wear this outfit, and you smoke your blunts out of a cigarette holder, and you walk around like you own the joint. But you don’t walk out of the house like this. And here’s the thing-- since when is public nudity OK?” Williams continued.
