'TLC's Chilli praised after posting makeup-free selfie on Instagram
Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas is getting compliments left and right on a new makeup-free pic shared to her Instagram. The singer also opened recently about the possibility of creating another album with TLC.
Chilli Thomas is a natural beauty, and she recently proved it by sharing a pair of selfies on Instagram asking for fans’ advice on her hairstyle.
The 47-year-old was thinking of making a drastic change to her hair, but she made sure to hear what her fans had to say about it first, sharing a lovely pic where she’s laying down on a sofa, wearing a black t-shirt and no makeup, as she held her hair in a way that would resemble bangs.
“ Bangs or nah?? Yes I know I need a tan!!!!! And I'm a bit lighter than this.. winter is NOT my friend #blindian #dougla,” she captioned the pic.
People filled the comment section gushing about Chilli’s natural beauty and reassuring her that her tan was just fine, as her natural skin color is gorgeous no matter what.
“@iamamonsterof5: Bangs or no bangs, tan or no tan, you have always been a beautiful woman.”
“@veknature: You’re gorgeous either way. Do what you want.”
“@mi55brown: Hmmm .. follow your heart!! Who cares what we think!! Your beauty shines beyond and through the beautiful person you are... continue to let it shine @therealchilli wether you have no bangs or bangs.”
Three days later, after getting enough comments to help her make a decision, Chilli shared another pic on the same spot, but this time around with her hair pushed to the back and a big smile on her face and captioned it:
“No bangs is the WINNER!!! Forehead n baby hair permanently exposed.”
THE REBIRTH OF TLC
Chilli has been touring alongside bandmate Tionne 'T-Boz' Watkins for the past year after they released “TLC,” the last self-titled album of the group, which came 15 years after their previous material.
The group suffered a significant loss when Lisa ‘LeftEye’ Lopes died in a car accident while filming a documentary in Honduras back in 2001. At the time, the girls didn’t have enough time to mourn their friend, as their label was pressuring them to drop new music or they would put out a Greatest Hits compilation.
“We wanted to finish what the three of us had started as best as we could under that type of pressure and pain,” Thomas told AZ Central. That’s how the platinum album “3D” was born in late 2002. As Chilli recalled:
“There were times where I felt really sad. I never really felt like I didn’t want to be in the studio. I just felt like I wasn’t ready to do what we were doing. I felt like we needed more time. It was just dark. That was the first time that we ever went to the studio, and it just felt like a weird cloud was over the project."
NO MORE ALBUMS, BUT STILL ON THE ROAD
“TLC” marks the end of an era for Watkins and Thomas. “I think we’d be open to do more songs – a single or something like that, for a soundtrack," Chilli said when asked if there are plans for making another full album. "But an official album? No. That was it."
“I mean, it’s bittersweet for sure, "because I come from an era where you make albums. And this generation, you may have an album, but it’s all about singles and streaming, and then you’ve got mixtapes. It’s very different."
Now, when it comes to touring and getting on stage, Thomas says there’s more to come for the duo.
“I love being on stage,” she said. “That’s my favorite. I love getting up there and giving everybody 150 percent of me and making everybody happy because they pay their good money to come and see, so they deserve a great show."
TLC has more concerts planned for 2019, until now, there only dates for April and June on their website, but fans from all around the country hope they will add more soon.
