Exclusive: TLC’s Chilli Talks Upcoming Sleepover With Katy Perry

Published

With a tour quickly approaching and confirmed plans to create one last and final album, TLC has one major year ahead of them.

Before heading to the studio to record one more stellar LP, the group has been using the fundraising website Kickstarter for their final project. And with a goal of only 150,000, the group has already raised a whopping $318,537.

“It’s right up TLC’s alley in terms of doing things outside the box,” Chilli told HipHollywood when asked why she and bandmate T-Boz turned to the crowd funding platform. “This was a great platform to us to do this new album and do it with our fans without any extra voices. It’s about the connection with our fans because they’re the ones that want this album. Not to say that we don’t want to record new music, but they are definitely the motivation behind all of this for us.”

Among some of the thousands of donations, Katy Perry, who forked over a cool $5,000.00. The group promised fans that if they donate over 5k, they get a sleepover with the ladies themselves. So it looks like Perry has to pick out some jammies for their upcoming slumber party.

“We are big kids and Katy Perry seems to be the same way. Who knows what would happen. We may start pranking and start knocking on people doors and running. Anything could happen at a TLC sleepover.”

The group will also be kicking off a summer tour starting on May 1 with New Kids On the Block and Nelly. “I love performing,” the 43-year-old told us. “When I’m up there it’s almost like I don’t have bones or something. I’m just dancing all over the place and just singing. I just love it.”

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”

Published

It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
