TLC are pounding the promotional pavement for their self-titled final album.
Today they stopped by The Breakfast Club to plug the set (due June 30th) and certainly made for an interesting visit.
Prior to chopping it up about a range of topics, host Charlamagne asked why member Chilli she had blocked him on social media. She didn’t reveal why, yet proceeded to largely ignore him and throw shots over the course of the interview. And yes, it’s as awkward as it sounds.
Elsewhere, Chilli and T-Boz spoke about their LP, drama within the group (including a tense time with the late Left Eye), ageism, the status of Pebbles‘ lawsuit against them, their current relationship with LA Reid, the “All Lives Matter” fiasco and much more.
A tense, yet insightful interview awaits below…
That was all sorts of awkward.
Sure, the ladies have a narrative that is so compelling that they’ll always make for great guests. But whatever Chilli was bothered about kinda placed a dark cloud over the entire interview.
Like at points it literally made for uncomfortable viewing – especially as she wouldn’t say what the issue was.
From where we’re sitting, surely the savviest approach would have been to air out any differences before the interview and have folk be none-the-wiser about any disagreements.
Because, in visiting his platform to plug her album, parts of this saw Chilli come across a touch salty.
And who knows, perhaps she’s actually in the right. But the fact she refused to say what the problem was just made this not the best look for her and, by association, the group.
