Being natural is incredibly empowering for women because it's just who you are. You're embracing all the beautiful things about you from your head to your toes. Because when you mask so much of your natural beauty, people don't get to see that.
For our first album, we were our own dressers. We didn't have no stylists. We came up with all of the ideas when it came to dressing. At that time, Cross Colours and Jabos were really popular, so we were able to get stuff from them, but we always added accessories.
From day one, we always admired male R&B groups. They would go onstage with no shirt on and baggy jeans, and girls would scream.
Even if you hurt my feelings and you lie, be a man and admit it. I'd rather someone be honest to me.
We love to come out on 'Ain't Too Proud to Beg' because it's so hyped. You just get your adrenaline going, and the fans are excited.
Of course Black Lives Matter and the killing of young black boys is heartbreaking to all of us. Everyone knows I am a black mother of a black son, so there is no way I could watch what's happening and not be affected.
I've gone on Twitter, and I've seen a picture of me walking through the airport, or some random picture, and the person's like, 'Oh my God. I just saw Chilli.' They just take a picture, and it lets people know where you are. It's just crazy to me even when people do that.
Your hair loves it; everything loves water, you know. So I don't drink soda. I don't drink the devil's juice. Everyone knows what I mean when I say that. I don't drink no alcohol, never!
I want everybody to know that I don't care who you are, where you're from, if you're popular or not: we all have haters. But you have to be resilient. You have to not allow them to have the power over you, where you start believing the things they say.
I think people kind of know me, although I am pretty private when it comes to my private life.
We're just not the type of artists that take anything for granted and just feel like, 'Oh yeah, you just know something great is going to happen.' We're not like that.
Life shows us all the time, really and truly, that you're not in control of most things, but at the same time, the things that you are able to control, you should definitely hold on to that. But it's okay that you can't control every aspect of your life.
When we got with Dallas Austin, he was just getting on. He was kinda like the fourth member of TLC.
Everything from the music to our clothes was truly authentic. Lisa and I were in my basement spray painting our overalls.
