T-Boz was minding her business outside a nightclub in West Hollywood last night (June 26) when TMZ put a camera in her face and grilled her about TLC‘s supposed beef with Rihanna. (In a recent interview they said they didn’t need to get undressed to sell records, which RiRi interpreted as a dig. So she changed her Twitter header to picture of the girl group naked and fired off a stinging tweet).
The 44-year-old kept it real and denied having any issue with the Barbadian babe. “I wasn’t talking about her then, I’m not talking about her now,” she explained. When asked about their Twitter war, the R&B icon pointed out that it was one-sided and said she didn’t have time to worry about because she’s “a grown ass woman”. However, T-Boz did invite Rihanna to track her down personally if she wants to take it further: “You know where to find me… I ain’t that far!”
She then complimented RiRi on her music and wished her the best. In short, the TLC diva kept her head and was fairly measured for someone leaving a club in the early hours. On the off chance they ever throw punches, my money is on T-Boz. You could tell she wasn’t fronting. Watch the full video over at TMZ.
