TLC slammed Rihanna for selling sex earlier this month, and RiRi - never one to back down from a fight - instantly attacked the R&B icons on Twitter.

Singer T-Boz (the "T" in TLC) responded to Rihanna's online tirade last night, and is it just us - or is she saying she wants to throw down?

While TMZ claims T-Boz challenged Rihanna to a fight, Mz. Boz was actually more subtle with her possible threat:

"You wanna holla, you know where to find me," said T-Boz. "It ain't that hard. And ya know what I mean!"

Okay, so it definitely sounds like she's down to go toe-to-toe, but the funny thing is, she also says that she and her bandmate weren't even referring to Rihanna when they criticized the revealing outfits of modern stars:

Echoing sentiments reportedly expressed by her mentor Jay Z, TLC ripped Rihanna for her frequent nudity during a recent interview in Australia.

Appearing on the morning show Sunrise to promote their first trip Down Under, T-Boz and Chilli singled out the singer for using sex to sell music.

“Every time I see you, you don’t have to be naked,” T-Boz said of Rihanna.

“It’s hard for us to say anything because any time we do, they say, ‘Oh, TLC must be jealous,’ but it is what it is," the female R&B pioneer went on.

“We became the biggest selling girl group with our clothes on, and that says a lot. It’s easy to sell sex. We could go around with booby cakes all day long.”

"I'm just calling a spade a spade.”

Is she, though? And in doing so, are they really just being hypocritical? Judging by the pop star's social media response, she's laughing off the criticism.

Sunday marked a TLC reunion as the group sang their smash hit "Waterfalls" in a surprise performance for the 2013 American Music Awards crowd.

Surviving members Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins and Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas were joined by Lil Mama, who took the place of the late Lisa “Left-Eye” Lopes.

As the group took to the stage wearing ethereal white ensembles, reminiscent of their outfit coordinating, 1990s heyday, the audience roared in response:

With their fluid choreographed movement, just like back in the day, the singers delighted those fans who remembered TLC’s peak nearly two decades ago.

The performance at the 2013 AMAs follows the October release of the VH1 biopic CrazySexyCool, which follows the girl group’s electric rise to fame.

Managed by Pebbles Reid, their time at the top was marked by meteoric success, but also plenty of controversy. But their talent still shines through.

Nearly 20 years after "Waterfalls" was first released, the ladies showed why they once ruled the industry, don't you think? Vote in our survey below ...

Perri "Pebbles" Reid, the former manager of TLC, found herself cast in the role of the villain in the recent VH1 biopic CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story.

The R&B trio's manager, and former artist, is speaking out, insisting she is not the ruthless, morally bankrupt music executive she was depicted as.

One particular point she is focused on? The alleged affair between a certain member of TLC and Pebbles' ex-husband, music executive L.A. Reid.

Pebbles admitted to Wendy Williams that she never caught the two:

“Let me explain something to you, I would've caught a case, had I seen something like that back then. That didn't happen. That didn't happen!”

However, she strongly believes Chilli was sleeping with L.A. Reid:

CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, the new biopic chronicling the life and times of girl group TLC, was a big hit for VH1 and ignited a new wave of interest in their music.

It was not, however, what you would call an uplifting film.

Tensions are still high between surviving members Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas, and their former manager, Perri "Pebbles" Reid.

CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, which aired Monday night, turned an unflattering spotlight on Pebbles, whom they blame for their financial problems.

Documenting the group's rise to fame in 1990s and early 2000s, the film was a darker than expected look at T-Boz, Chilli, and the late Lisa "Left-Eye" Lopes.
