Tlc star Rozonda 'Chilli' Thomas has become the latest celebrity to strip for animal rights group Peta.

The Grammy Award-winning singer has bared all to raise awareness about the abuse of tigers in circuses.

Photographed crouched inside a cage and wearing nothing but striped bodypaint, Chilli is urging fans to 'Boycott the Circus' in the ad.

PETA officials have learned that many big cats used by circuses are beaten into submission, and when they're not performing, they are locked away in cramped, filthy cages.

Tiger lover Chilli says, "There's so much cruelty behind the scenes, which is...

TLC turned down ...Baby One More Time

October 21st, 2013 3:10am EDT
R&B stars Tlc turned down the chance to record Britney Spears' breakout mega hit ...Baby One More Time because they were not comfortable with the lyrics.

Tionne 'T-Boz' Watkins reveals the girl group was offered the Max Martin and Rami Yacoub song before it was snapped up by Spears as her debut single back in 1999, but the singers rejected the track because it didn't fit their sound.

Recalling the offer, she tells MTV News, "I was like, 'I like the song but do I think it's a hit? Do I think it's TLC? I'm not saying 'hit me baby'.' No disrespect to Britney. It's good for her. But was I goi...

Chilli kicked out of group in early TLC days

October 17th, 2013 8:30pm EDT
Rozanda 'Chilli' Thomas almost missed out on finding fame with Tlc after she was booted from the band early on in the R&B stars' careers.

The Waterfalls hitmakers' manager, Perri 'Pebbles' Reid, has long been rumoured to have dropped Chilli from the group's line-up after falling out over behavioural issues - and now the singer has confirmed the claims.

Usher's ex-girlfriend suggests she had been coming on too strong to producer Dallas Austin, who she went on to date, prompting Pebbles to take drastic action.

She tells U.S. talk show host Wendy Williams, "I got kicked out. At first I was ...

Palmer joins rapper Lil' Mama, who will play Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes, in the full-length TV movie about how the R&B superstars became one of the most successful girl groups in history.

Nineteen-year-old Palmer admits it is a huge honor to be involved in the TLC movie because she was a huge fan of the trio growing up.

Queen's Roger Taylor Says He Won't Perform With Freddie Mercury Hologram

May 1st, 2012 8:05am EDT
Roger Taylor
Queen's drummer Roger Taylor has no plans to follow the holographic craze by performing with an image of late singer Freddie Mercury, insisting, "It's the real one or no hologram for me."

Since deceased rapper Tupac Shakur sensationally appeared as a hologram at last month's Coachella festival, there have been reports of other late music stars set to receive the same technological treatment - including TLC star Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes.

However, drummer Taylor isn't resurrecting his flamboyant former frontman, who died in 1991.

Taylor tells Billboard, "I don't think I want to. Were someb...

TLC star Tionne 'T-Boz' Watkins is seriously considering bringing her late bandmate Lisa 'Left Eye' Lopes back from the grave for an upcoming anniversary tour, insisting she thought up the idea years before rapper Dr. Dre 'resurrected' Tupac Shakur for the Coachella music festivals.

'Glee' Recap: Just Be A Queen

GLEE Born This Way
In just a few weeks, the glee club is going to Nationals, prom royalty will be crowned, and Lady Gaga will release a new album. It’s a trifecta of amazing events that deserve to be brought together in a super sparkly, extra-long ‘Glee’ that’s all about self-acceptance.

Rather than hit us over the head with the theme of this episode, Finn clocks Rachel in the nose. In under a minute, rhinoplasty is on the table and New Directions is debating the merits of surgically enhanced vs unconditional self-acceptance. Miss Pillsbury is brought in to help Mr. Schue drive home the message that this we...

Hot Legs: Sugababes Singer Jade Ewan Struts Her Stuff

August 15th, 2010 2:41pm EDT
They're called the Sugababes, but as far as we can tell there's only one babe.

Maybe they should rethink their name? New member Jade Ewan recently showed off her long, lean legs at a music festival in Zambujeira do Mar, Portugal.

Bandmates Heidi Range and Amelle Berrabah also took the stage, but leggy Jade definitely outshone her singing partners.

The band just revealed they will start work on a new album next week. The disc will be the first with new member Jade, who rerecorded Keisha Buchanan's vocals on their previous release "Sweet 7" after being drafted into the band in September.

Unexpected, Untimely And Shocking Deaths In Music

July 1st, 2009 11:15am EDT
Shocking music deaths
Heart attacks. Plane crashes. Car crashes. Drug overdoses. Murder. Over the years, these have become some of the most common causes of the often shocking deaths in the music industry. On a lighter note, some might argue that even ham sandwiches have been involved.

Regardless of the cause, take a look back at these musical icons that have left us way, way, way too soon - yet have left us with legacies that will live on forever. The majority of these deaths, in addition to being sudden and shocking, were in some way either ironic or just completely messed up. Rock on...

25 Surprise Celebrity Deaths That Rocked Us All

April 7th, 2009 9:10am EDT
Natasha Richardson
Actress Natasha Richardson's unexpected death in a skiing accident late last month stunned and saddened the public. The usually overzealous media even seemed to tread lightly, gently reporting a story it never expected to tell. For a culture that values and admires celebrity, the death of vibrant public figures with potential yet to fulfill serves as a harsh reminder that despite glamour, talent and seemingly charmed lives, all of us are mortal. Whether on screens big or small, over the radio airwaves or in bright vivid color on canvas, the sudden passing of an entertainer can feel like the...

Prima J Opening For Danity Kane Through July

June 27th, 2008 7:00am EDT
Prima J
The name of their debut single may be "Rock Star," but the two cousins that make up Prima J are everything but. In fact, Jessica and Janelle Martinez are so down-to-earth, it seems just as odd that their song is the lead track from the Bratz™ Motion Picture Soundtrack (released by Geffen Records July 31st, with the movie following August 3). Far from precocious and everything but bratty, the pair are actually a real-life version of the comradarie and competitive edge captured in the movie.

Their recent discovery and success aside, Jessica and Janelle still can't believe that they've n...

Timbaland Takes Top Prizes At ASCAP Awards

June 25th, 2008 6:30am EDT
Superproducer Timbaland scooped a double win at the 21st Annual ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Awards on Monday night, taking two top prizes including Songwriter of the Year. The "Apologize" beatmaker, who has scored chart success with artists like Justin Timberlake, Nelly Furtado and OneRepublic, was also honored for his work on rapper Fabolous' song "Make Me Better."

Timbaland's latest win comes just months after he was named Songwriter of the Year at the 25th Annual ASCAP Pop Music Awards in April.

However, the biggest accolade of the night went to Bobby Brown's former boyband New Editi...

Marriage Changed Usher

May 27th, 2008 1:00pm EDT
R&B superstar Usher credits his wife Tameka Foster with changing his playboy ways - because he was never able to remain faithful to his partners before the pair met. The "Yeah!" hitmaker married stylist Foster last September and welcomed a son, Usher Raymond V, two months later.

But the 29-year-old singer romanced a string of beauties before walking down the aisle - including TLC star Rozonda 'Chili' Thomas - and detailed his struggle with monogamy on 2004 hit Confessions.

However, he claims to have left his bachelor days well behind him since meeting Foster.

He says, "When ...

Top 20 Kid Shows From The 80s & 90s

April 29th, 2008 11:35am EDT
Ren & Stimpy
Remember the innocence of childhood? The birthday parties. The water gun fights. The sleep overs. Oh, and the television shows! This is a countdown of the top 20 kids shows from the mid 80s and mid 90s. There are some exceptions, though, and they are as follows:

Though excellent shows, programs such as Pee Wee’s Playhouse, Sesame Street, and "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" are absent from this list. This isn’t just because they premiered decades ago but also because their target demographic was roughly children six and under, rather than kids aged seven to fifteen, which this coun...

TLC's Chilli Reveals Crush On Will Smith

April 15th, 2008 6:30pm EDT
Will Smith
Jada Pinkett Smith has a little celebrity competition over her man - TLC star Rozonda 'Chilli' Thomas is smitten with Will Smith after checking out his body in I Am Legend. Thomas, who previously dated Usher and producer Dallas Austin, admits she was stunned by Smith's physique in the hit film - and she envies her actress pal.

Thomas tells Sister2Sister magazine, "I want her man. No, that's my girl. We cool. But I can admire... His body is off the chain. I was like, 'Man, when this comes on DVD I'm gonna press pause. He's doing, like, these little push-ups, these pull-ups."

Chilli Speaks Out Over Usher Breakup

April 10th, 2008 6:30pm EDT
TLC star Rozonda 'Chilli' Thomas has finally spoken out about her split from ex-boyfriend Usher, insisting the much-hyped break-up had nothing to do with revelations the singer made on his Confessions album. Both Usher and Thomas refused to speak about the 2003 split, despite speculation suggesting the clues to the break-up were literally written all over his album.

Songs about cheating led fans to believe the "Waterfalls" singer had dumped the R&B stud after learning he had been unfaithful, and in the song "Burn," he sang about ending a relationship he no longer wanted to be in.


Chilli Turned Down Movie Roles For Her Son

April 10th, 2008 11:25am EDT
TLC star Rozonda 'Chilli' Thomas has revealed she gave up a huge movie role to concentrate on motherhood. The R&B singer, a single mom, admits she has been forced to turn down a lucrative acting career because she can't leave her son Tron behind and head off on location.

She explains, "Tron is first. I put him before I put myself. I've never had a nanny... I don't do that because I want to do everything myself. It's a lot of things that I've turned down because I chose to put my baby first." But she can't talk about the films she turned down, or who took the roles she was offered.


Outkast: In a Class of Their Own

March 27th, 2008 2:30pm EDT
As one of the hottest rap groups out today, Outkast has etched a mark in hip-hop history as perhaps the best rap group ever. They're in fair competition, however, with groups like A Tribe Called Quest and EPMD riding dutch. These groups, by coincidence, never took to transforming the perceptions of what many outside the South considered as nothing special into worthy rhyme sayers, putting Atlanta on its back and giving listeners something to nod to.

Outkast's Andre 3000 and Big Boi came together as a group in 1991 and signed to Laface Records in 1992. They were the label's first hip-h...

Are You Ready For...Brit & Alex? Check Out Their Debut Single 'Let It Go'

March 12th, 2008 6:07pm EDT
Brit & Alex
Production legend Dallas Austin calls them "my new TLC." They're stopped in the street on a daily basis. Labels have been trying to get them for years; Jimmy Iovine, Chairman of Interscope Records, heard two songs and signed them on the spot. There's nothing overnight about the imminent success of 22-year-old identical twins Brit and Alex Smith (Brit's the platinum blonde) and the release of their first single 'Let It Go' is the culmination of six years' hard work.

'Let It Go' is the perfect first taste of what the singing, songwriting duo have in offer: its bridge tells the story of a...

Cherish Returns With Yung Joc On New Single, 'Killa'; New CD Due April 29

February 18th, 2008 6:00pm EST
Most people are not ready for the truth.

But, Cherish is.

In fact, these four singing sisters who hit it big in 2006 with the dance hit "Do It To It" from the Gold-certified album, Unappreciated, are positive that you are ready as well. "Our new album is named The Truth, and it basically delves into the different aspects of our lives," says an excited Fallon, 20. "The entire album reflects our lives and our situations."

Their sophomore project introduces young women who have found their unique place in a field full of duplicates and manufactured stars.
