After the 61st GRAMMY Awards on Sun. Feb. 10, more than 5,000 members of the music industry community will head for the Renaissance-themed official after-party celebration at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The event will be headlined by R&B greats En Vogue and TLC. The private, ticketed event’s festivities also feature jazz vocalist Kurt Elling and a set by DJ Michelle Pesce, as well as gourmet cuisine and dancing.

The ladies of GRAMMY-nominated group En Vogue stirred up the ’90s R&B scene with hits including “Hold On,” “My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It)” and “Don’t Let Go (Love),” which was nominated for Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal at the 39th GRAMMY Awards.

The women of GRAMMY-winning group TLC also made huge waves in ’90s (and early-2000s) R&B. At the 38th GRAMMY Awards, their sophomore album CrazySexyCool won Best R&B Album and its single “Creep” won Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal. At the 42nd GRAMMY Awards, the group won both categories again with their follow-up album Fanmail and its hit “No Scrubs.”

TLC & En Vogue’s first televised collaboration occurred back in 2008 at the BET Awards, where they were the special guests of Alicia Keys, who also happens to be this years GRAMMYS host.

Chilli: “R. Kelly Was Muted Years Ago When He Married A Child!”

20190127_073947 (1)

Chilli has made it very clear she is not a supporter of R. Kelly.

She hasn’t only just cancelled R. Kelly because of the recent Lifetime documentary Surviving R. Kelly, which documented the historic and recent sexual abuse his victims endured.

Chilli has had Kelly on the block list for over 20 years, back when he illegally married an underaged singer, the late Aaliyah, whilst she was only 15 years old.

Speaking to TMZ this week in Atlanta, she said: “It didn’t take me to see a documentary to know the truth. I mean, he was cancelled years ago in my book after marrying a 15-year-old child.”

Regarding Kelly’s denial over the sex cult allegations, she said: “And then on top of that, I saw the tape at the studio with a whole bunch of other people, and I was just like, ‘He’s going to jail.’ I saw it, I was like, ‘He’s going to jail.’ And then when I heard he denied it I was like ‘What!’

“How can you deny that?” she said before mentioning TLC’s biggest hit. “That’s like me saying that’s not me on the swing in the ‘No Scrubs‘ video!”

Chilli’s feelings towards R. Kelly come as no surprise to TLC fans. Back in 2003, whilst Chilli and T-Boz were guest hosting a video countdown show, 106 & Park on BET, Chilli pretended to be asleep during the airing of R. Kelly’s ‘Ignition‘ remix video as a form of protest against him.

“When you’re young, that frontal lobe hasn’t closed up yet. So, your reasoning and all that kind of stuff, it’s not there, it’s not developed”, Chilli continues. “But the person older than you, should know better.”

And she doesn’t feel like the parents should take all the heat away from the main perpetrator. “People are like, ‘it’s the parents, it’s the parents’… it’s them as well. It’s not just one person, but it’s definitely the monsters, for sure.”

As well as hoping to collab with Weezer in the future, following their ‘No Scrubs’ cover which went viral, Chilli also mentions that she has a major tour announcement coming soon, so stay tuned!

Our thoughts are completely with our girl T-Boz right now!

The TLC superstar, who also suffers with the long-term condition of sickle cell anemia, is suffering with the flu at the moment, and as a result she will be unable to fulfil the scheduled TLC shows for Hard Rock this weekend.

However, ticket holders for these shows at Hard Rock Live Orlando on January 25 and Hard Rock Casino Biloxi on January 26 will be able to keep their tickets for the new dates on June 28 & 29.

In a statement, T-Boz said: “We are truly sorry for any inconvenience that this may have caused but we need to reschedule this date. Flu season has hit home and my doctors have instructed me that I cannot travel, but I look forward to seeing y’all in June!”

Tickets will be fulfilled on the newly announced dates, and those who cannot attend the rescheduled dates may receive a refund at the original point of purchase.

We wish T-Boz a very speedy recovery!
