The Atlanta duo TLC are feeling the heat for dissing R&B diva Rihanna. The singer wore a dress that left nothing to the imagination at the CFDA fashion awards.

Hollywood Life is reporting T-Boz and Chilli accused Rihanna of selling sex. The duo feel that since they didn't use sex to sell CDs it's wrong for Rihanna to show off her goods. Not for nothing, but this is a case of the pot calling the kettle black. TLC often wore very tight, midriff baring outfits. They also writhed around in silk pajamas in their "Creep" video. The singer was wearing a see through dress that showed off her breasts. Ri-Ri has always pushed the envelop when it comes to fashion, so this dress was no different than any of her other outfits.

T-Boz and Chilli are probably looking for attention. They haven't had a hit since they released their single "No Scrubs" in the early 2000s. After the death of Lisa Lopes in 2002 TLC became a duo. T-Boz and Chilli put out a CD called 3D in late 2002. Some of the tracks on the CD featured Lisa. The group decided to retire after the last CD. Over the years T-Boz and Chilli have performed together as TLC. Per Wikipedia, the duo signed a new record deal and are planning a tour.

T-Boz and Chilli now have egg on their faces. Their fans are dissing them for calling out their competition. Rihanna also stuck up for herself on Twitter. If these women were smart they would collaborate with Ri-Ri instead of putting her down. Rihanna is one of the biggest singers in the world, and TLC need all the help they can get to make their comeback.
