Multi-platinum Grammy Award winning R&B girl supergroup TLC is featured is the latest issue of V Magazine. For the spread, Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas were shot by photographer Christelle De Castro and styled by Haley Wollens. The “Water Falls” singers styled in designers including DKNY, Marc Jacobs, Anne Sofie Madsen, Diane Von Furstenberg and more. Below are some excerpts:
“TLC, the four-time Grammy-winning, 65-million-albums-selling R&B girl supergroup named for members Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes, and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, reclaimed the initials with the premiere of the VH1 original movie CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story and an accompanying greatest hits collection, 20, which delivered a new single, “Meant To Be.” Written by Ne-Yo, the song, according to Thomas, “sums up the whole 20 years of the relationship between the three of us and the ongoing relationship between T-Boz and myself.” As any true pop-culture enthusiast knows, this is no small feat“.
“TLC’s story is no less breathtaking than the scope of their influence. From humble Atlanta beginnings to global superstardom, the band has lived a triumphant, outrageous, often tragic tale perfectly suited to a “Behind the Music” segment. Watkins would struggle with chronic sickle cell anemia (and later be sidelined by a brain tumor). Thomas publicly endured the throes of a relationship with Usher. The group suffered an astounding bankruptcy. And then Lopes, after infamously burning down the house of her boyfriend, Atlanta Falcons football player Andre Rison, and acrimoniously challenging her bandmates to a solo album showdown, suddenly passed away, in a 2002 auto accident while on a spiritual retreat in Honduras“.
