A couple days ago I came across a TLC interview where T Boz and Chile were asked about artists that use sex to sell their albums. This was of course asked with Rihanna’s CFDA stunt in mind. T Boz didn’t hold back answering, “Everytime I see you, you don’t have to be naked. And it’s hard for us to say anything ’cause any time 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, okay? 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 [breasts] all day long. They’re small. We don’t have a lot, but they’re still boobie cakes!” All I thought when I read the article was ‘This is not going to sit well with RiRi’. Known for her cyber bullying (it is what is), the singer changed her twitter profile picture to an old picture of TLC exposing their breast in a photo shoot. “Phuk what an old thot gott say”, she tweeted.
Sheesh! Rihanna has no remorse! However, it’s what they’re calling “Porn Pop” that artists such as Rihanna and Miley Cyrus are selling today! In my opinion, I understand that sex is a huge part of entertainment, it’s been like that for years and it’s not going to change. However, it sucks that young girls look up to these women who are living their lives in such ways as role models. This is where parenting comes in . . . I’m going to continue on this topic in another article. I’m looking forward to hearing your opinion! Check out TLC interview below!
