Chilli of TLC talks about Destiny's Child

Interviewer:Do you think TLC paved the way for other female R&B groups such as Destiny's Child?
Chilli:Absolutely. But I think that even before TLC, so many other female groups paved the way for us like Salt-N-Pepa. Althouh they were a rap act, it was still a girl group. I loved them and they had good messages in some of their songs. I compare groups like Destiny's Child to an En Vogue. I haven't honestly seen a girl group that reminds me of TLC.

Interviewer:Do you sense Destiny's Child was biting TLC at all?
Chilli: Absolutely not. First of all, T-Boz and I are the singers in TLC. Tionne has a very raspy voice, mine is more soft and melodic and Lisa was the rapper. She never did sing. So you have three seperate artists in [Destiny's Child] and everybody sings. There are no rappers. You knew all the girls in TLC. I'm sure everybody had their favorite, but you loved us collectively. So it wasn't like you knew Chilli and not really paid any attention to Left Eye. No, you knew all three. As for Destiny's Child, who doesn't know who Beyonce is? Not only from her solo stuff, but when she was in the group.

Interviewer:Do you feel DC pays homage to you?
Chilli:I don't know. We're just so different. To me, the only thing that was similar was "Bills, Bills, Bills" to "No Scrubs." [Laughs] It kinda sounded like "No Scrubs" because it was the same writer and producer. As far as lyrically what they talk about or how they are as a group, it's so different from us. TLC was always outspoken. We opened the doors for girl groups period.

Interviewer:What do you think of Beyonce, Kelly, and Michelle going their seperate ways?
Chilli: Nothing lasts forever. I don't think anybody should be surprised. It's not a shock to me.

That's what I thought too. She didn't really say anything that bad.

No, she didn't say anything bad but, it seems like the "interviewer" was desperately trying to get her to say something bad about Destiny's Child it seemed like an interrogation.

truly horrible interview, as if an editor told the reporter: "Get something incendiary that'll cause folks to run out and buy our magazine!"
