i know… i know… but this one is like seriously important.
So, TLC was on Arsenio Hall when they addressed rumors that they were HIV positive, stemming from their frequent wearing condoms and possibly T-Boz’s illness which was later revealed to be Sickle Cell. Anyway, when they addressed the rumors, they made sure to make the point that demonizing someone for being HIV positive definitely not the thing to do.
Left Eye: “I think if we had AIDS, that would be all the more reason to listen to us.”
T-Boz: “Some people do get naive or mess up, but if we had messed up like that it’s nothing to look down on us for. You should look at it like a learning lesson.”
and then when Arsenio tried to make a joke about them wearing condoms on their clothes (after the discussion no less), they remained clear in that safe sex was no joke to them.
Chilli: “We throw them [condoms] out every night at the show”.
it starts at about 5:45, after a performance of one of my favorites “Hat 2 The Back”…. love that damn song…
Hat to the back, i gotta keep my pants down real low
that’s the kind of girl I am.
Being that i am the kind of girl that i am, some people just don’t understand the things that i do….
So I’m not the only one still on my TLC kick. I’ve watched this interview a few times over the past week.
Like I said, NOBODY did what TLC did, stop trying to compare other groups to them! STOP!!
Hat 2 the Back is also one of my faves. Bout to go listen to it now.
