ESSENCE.COM: Well, there’s been a lot of talk in the blogosphere that you were jealous of Beyoncé after making comments about Columbia Records dropping Kelly Rowland.
T-BOZ: (Laughs.) First of all, if I’m going to be jealous of anyone I’m going to be jealous of my damn self because I can’t even do TLC again because that was a phenomenal once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that I can never get back. For the record, I’m not jealous of Beyoncé. I like her and Destiny’s Child, because if folks remember, TLC went on tour with them for two months when they were just starting. The blogs like to twist things and make something out of nothing. I was simply expressing my thoughts on girl groups in general and that my personal choice would never be to put myself in a situation where I’m in a group that is managed by one of the group member’s parents. I think that Mathew and Tina have done a great job, so it’s no diss to them or not taking away anything from what they’ve accomplished. I just know what would not work for me, because, at the end of the day, if a manager has a personal relationship with someone in the group they are managing, they are always going to have that person’s interest first and foremost and that’s all I was expressing.
Is T-Boz backtracking on her hating ways, or is she just explaining how she laid it down quite flat and that’s all there is to it?
