Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozanda "Chilli" Thomas of TLC have slammed Rihanna for using sex to sell records and have implored her to put some clothes on.

The stars, who rose to fame as part of the safe sex promoting girl band TLC, aren't happy for RiRi and her contemporaries for using their bodies to sell their music.

In an interview with Australia's Channel 7 show Sunrise on Friday, the women slated Rihanna for her provocative outfits.

"Every time I see you you don't have to be naked," said T-Boz. "It's easy to sell sex."

She added: 'It's hard for us to say anything because any time we do, they say, 'Oh TLC must be jealous', but I call a spade a spade."

However, Chilli was quick to note that TLC found themselves at the top fully-clothed.

"We became the biggest girl selling group of all time with our clothes on and that says a lot," she explained.

"We could go around too with booby cakes [breasts] out all day long," she added clearly referring to the see-through dress the singer donned at the CFDA Awards on Monday.

"TLC is my favourite girl group," she added. "Even though I'm in the group. I love our group. I love what we stand for."

And while we'd hate to go against anything our second favourite girl group of all time (the first being the Spice Girls, of course!) we're a little disappointed in the pair for taking a swipe at other female artists.

Sure, we don't always need to see RiRi's bum crack, but there's no denying she's a powerful woman in control of her own image.
