Who gon’ check me boo? – Sheree Whitfield of RHOA
Biting your tongue, opt for the more PC response. For what? That’s for new artists. When you’re T-Boz from TLC–one of the best selling girl groups of all time–you’ve seen too much in the music industry to tip toe around questions that could potentially tick off other artists. T-Boz sat down with Max of This Is Max while over in London for the MOBO awards. Max must’ve known T-Boz would give unfiltered answers to what she thinks about the current state of artists and Nicki Minaj as a judge on American Idol. T-Boz didn’t disappoint. She went in!
We don’t know who she could have been talking about when she said, “Just because you’re on TV gyrating and boning and sucking penises, it’s not talent, honey. Maybe in the porn industry, but over here, we entertain.” Wowzers. Beyonce? Rihanna? Who knows. That open-ended answer may have us guessing, but it’s clear she’s referring to Nicki Minaj as a judge American Idol in her next answer. “I don’t respect half [of] the people I’ve seen lately,” the singer told Max. “How the hell is she gon’ tell me what I should be doing when her a– can’t even sing? Why is she there? Now they’ve got rappers that don’t even sing judging. So, this is totally based off of popularity I guess. I mean, to each their own. Get your money, honey. All I’m saying is, I will never watch [your] shows again.”
Tell us how you really feel, T-Boz. Does she have a point? It’s safe to assume Nicki will be burning her CrazySexyCool disc. And this means no Nicki feature on TLC’s upcoming album. Waits for a Barbz Twitter rant in 5 4 3 2 1…
