Creep.” “Unpretty“. “Waterfalls“.

For many a TLC fan, the above songs stand just as powerful today as they did upon their respective releases… a testament to the group’s skill and conviction as both performers and vocalists.

So last night, in honor of their place in entertainment history and ever moving story, the group were honored with the Outstanding Contribution To Music award at the MOBO awards, which celebrates acts inspired by, or who pull from, Music Of Black Origin.

        T-Boz was on Donald Trump show last year and she looked good. She did not look bloated as she looks now. It must be the meds.
