On June 9, 2019, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins held a house party for her fans that had paid to go to her annual charity event, ‘T-Boz Unplugged‘, following last months announcement of the cancellation of this years show.

Many of her diehard fans were in attendance, including the lovely Carl, one of the biggest TLC fans ever! Here’s how his night at the party went down, in his own words!🎉

“Fans arrived around 5:30pm. T-Boz arrived around 5:45pm. She went downstairs to prep for the event. A steady flow of fans kept arriving throughout the beginning of the party.

The first thing that fans had to do was give their phones up. We received a ticket that matched the ticket of our phones. Also, the fans were treated to food and drinks. It was a reunion for a lot of TLC fans. There was a lot of “Hellos” and hugging.

There was a music mix of TLC songs and today’s hit songs. The house was hot! The AC couldn’t keep up with all the hot bodies. The windows and patio door had to be opened to funnel some of the heat out of the house.

T-Boz was downstairs and a line formed to go down and take pics with her. Finally, the hostess, T-Boz, came from downstairs to make her appearance and to hang with the fans. She hugged and mingled with so many fans. She showed a lot of love. She gave everyone their special time with her.

Other fans watched while the dancing was going on. One request was made by one fan. The fan wanted to hear one of T-Boz’s solo songs. The song was “Stronger Than You Know.” T-Boz had the DJ play the song and said that it was one of her original oldest songs that she had written.

After the dancing, everyone clapped. There was so much fun going on. T-Boz mingled some more then she headed downstairs for more pictures. Fans got to take pictures with T-Boz in a photo booth as well as professional pics by a photographer. This was the second round of pics.

TLC’s Chilli and Weezer Don’t Want No Scrubs: Live at Coachella 2019

The wishes of the C of TLC have finally come true, in the form of a live collaboration!

Back in January, rock band Weezer dropped a teaser from their latest album of covers, ‘The Teal Album‘. On the project they decided to cover the TLC classic ‘No Scrubs‘ — and Chilli approved!

So much so, the gorgeous TLC member let it be known that she would like to perform the song with them one day!

Fast forward to April 13th and her hopes have now come to fruition. Weezer invited Chilli to join them live on stage during their set at the Coachella festival in Indio, California!

Chilli surprised fans when she performed the iconic ‘Fanmail‘ lead single effortlessly along with Weezer front man Rivers Cuomo, giving the song a new lease of life to an alternative audience.

Much like the famous introductions Chilli gives to the audience at TLC shows, educating young girls to avoid those scrubs when they start to drive, Rivers replicates the same sentiments during his anti-scrub speech. Our girls have taught him well.

Keeping in with the humor, he starts the song solo, acting surprised to hear a familiar female voice interject his vocals, whilst maintaining the suspense of Chilli’s guest feature.

The performance was a hit with the crowd, and Chilli later took to social media to thank the guys and hinted that they may be in attendance on the upcoming TLC summer tour!

In addition to ‘Scrubs’, Weezer also performed a barbershop quartet version of their own song, “Beverly Hills”, as well as fan favorites “Buddy Holly”, “Hash Pipe”, “El Scorcho”, and “Island in the Sun”.

Most diehard TLC fans will recall Weezer being one of TLC’s biggest competitions at the 1995 MTV Video Music Awards, where both groups were nominated for countless awards.

It’s a pleasure to see them working together. Let’s hope more connections and collabs will be formed with more of their peers from the 90’s and today!

Check out their epic performance below and let us know your thoughts!

Autopsy: The Last Hours of Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes (2019)

Cable TV network REELZ have produced a brand new episode in their ‘Autopsy‘ series, which is a documentary-style television series that investigates the tragic, controversial and sudden deaths of celebrities.

This episode is based on the late, great Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes. It premiered on March 24, 2019.

The producers speak to Lisa’s siblings; Reigndrop and Ronald Lopes, as well as Forensic Pathologist Dr Michael Hunter, who will look into the circumstances behind the tragedy and find out exactly what happened in the accident.

As a fan, I felt this episode brought some closure to the whole tragedy of losing such an idol, icon and inspirational individual. However, some of the detailed information about the exact cause of death is not for everyone, so be prepared.

Rest in peace, Lisa Nicole Lopes.

A true Supernova.

Synopsis
On April 25th 2002 Lisa “Left -Eye” Lopes was killed in a mysterious car crash in the depths of the Honduran Jungle. The road was quiet, conditions were dry and initial reports suggest that hers was the only car on the road. Lisa was one third of the phenomenally successful girl band TLC and her death was met with shock and hysteria. Lisa was 5ft tall but her feisty volatile nature often brought her into contact with the law. Yet at the height of TLC’s fame she began to spend more and more time in a mysterious Jungle retreat that was set up by self-proclaimed healer Dr Sebi. Did Dr Sebi’s strict dietary regime have any influence on her tragic accident? In this episode, Forensic Pathologist Dr Michael Hunter looks at the last three weeks in the life on this musical Icon to try to work out how and why she was killed.

Mariah Carey recently dropped the glossy music video to her latest single “A No No“, lifted from her latest album, the critically acclaimed ‘Caution‘, and followed up the release with a brand new remix!

After months of a rumoured remix with hip-hop rappers Cardi B & Lil’ Kim (whose 1996 hit “Crush On You” is heavily sampled on the single), Mariah decided to roll with the super talented British rapper Stefflon Don!

Stefflon Don rhymes effortlessly over the classic beat in her British-Jamaican accent, even dropping a shout out to the legendary Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes!

“I ain’t with the “he say, she say” / get the strap out / Bloodclart dem a try / Burn down your house like Lisa “Left Eye” / Ain’t no nigga left, aye / It’s plain and simple, they addicted to me”, Stefflon Don raps on the track.

Producer Jermaine Dupri claims he sent Lil’ Kim the track after she reached out to him to be included on the remix. However, the final decision lay in the hands of Epic Records.

Let us know what you think of this Stefflon Don-laced version of this Mariah hit!
