48-Year-Old Chilli's Abs Praised by TLC Fans in Concert Photo from 'Whole Lotta Hits' Tour
TLC’s Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas has jaws dropping with a recent photo of her insane abs. Fans praised the 48-year-old, who previously shared the secrets to her youthfulness.
Chilli is the perfect image of “Black Don’t Crack.” It’s been 27 years since TLC debuted with “Ooooooohhh... On the TLC Tip” but the lead singer does not look like she’s aged a day.
Chilli took to Instagram with a photo from one of her performances and fans went wild in the comment section. Her bralette-and-pants ensemble offered a generous view of the singer’s abs and toned frame.
“I’m going to print this pic and put it in my car to remind me to take my butt to the gym! Lol,” one fan couldn’t help gushing.
“That is more than genetics,” another said of Chilli’s incredible body. “Give her her props. This is dedication.”
“SMH...your killing me with this body. I can't. Back to the gym, I go,” chimed in a third while a fourth fan raved:
“Those abs! How in the world do u have those after having a kid? Maybe I need to change my eating and workouts!”
DANCING LIKE A ROCKSTAR
If that picture had your jaws dropping as well, you'd be left even more speechless when you see the nearly-50 Chilli busting a move with her 22-year-old son and other dancers. Honestly, it’s crazy how she can move like that!
Fans have always been in awe of Chilli’s youthfulness, but thankfully, she’s never hesitated to share the tips that helped her thus far.
The singer, who is currently touring with Nelly, Flo-Rida, and her TLC bandmate T-Boz, told ESSENCE last September that acupuncture and red light therapy make the list.
“I do acupuncture. I do a lot of different things to make sure inflammation is not in my body. Most people have inflammation; they don’t even know it because they don’t feel it at the time. A good chiropractor is also essential because your hips and stuff are not balanced. You don’t know it until you lay on that table and you see one leg is longer.”
“I also do red light therapy. That’s also good for inflammation,” she added. “It’s an LED light, and it doesn’t burn your skin, but it helps with arthritis.”
While working out is also one of Chilli’s secrets to looking forever young, that is not what she sets out to achieve. The Georgia native exercises consistently because she “[wants] to be healthy and keep my bones moving.”
Finally, there’s the place of healthy eating, which Chilli testifies is the foundation. “For me, it starts with what I put inside my body,” she shared with BET many years back.
“I generally try to eat everything organic and I cook a lot. I don’t eat out much. I only eat at places where I can get a ton of veggies. I also don’t drink alcohol. I naturally don’t like alcohol and I’ve never liked it.”
STILL IN THE GAME
Chilli’s routine pays off because, at 48, her body can still pass off for a teenager’s and she can keep up the energy while performing on stage.
Speaking back in May about their current “Whole Lotta Hits” tour, Chilli said: “We take being on the road and our shows very, very seriously.”
TLC’s third member, Lisa ‘Left-Eye’ Lopes, died in a car crash in 2002.
