If you told me 18, 16 or 11 years ago, at various peaks in my TLC fanaticism, that one day Chilli would compliment my arms and request peek at my torso, I probably would have died then and there and never would have made it to this point. So thanks for not telling me that, people of the future! Anyway, that’s exactly what happens in the clip above, when Chilli and I go over her laundry list of requirements in men that she dictates on her new VH1 hit, What Chilli Wants. Another of that list’s items, penis size, is thoroughly discussed in the clip below, in which Chilli informs us, “It’s not the motion of the ocean, it’s the size!” This woman is a riot!
And, since I couldn’t possibly talk to a member of one of my favorite music groups of all time, period, here’s a clip where we talk about TLC’s contribution to music and whether Chilli considers TLC to be feminist.
This is only the tip of the iceberg. We also talk reality TV, Left Eye’s passing and Chilli’s romantic adviser Tionna Smalls and so much more — you can watch the entire, very long Chilli interview at its video page. This might be my favorite interview I’ve ever done. They say that you shouldn’t meet your heroes, because you’ll only end up disappointed. I’m happy to report, this was so not the case with Chilli.
