Earlier this year, TLC created a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for their last and final album. The group needed to raise a whopping 150k and thanks to thousands of fans, the ladies reached their goal … and then some.
But what was supposed to be a project delivered by mid-October has become more of what fans are considering an empty promise.
Many have taken to social media to express their anger after donating a certain amount of coins to the campaign. The controversy has even sparked the hashtag, #TLCIsGoingToJailParty.
But the dozens of tweets and memes hitting the web are not fazing TLC at all.
“Y’all sound ridiculous we’re I n the damn studio recording it,” T-Boz tweeted on Sunday night to a fan asking for her money back.
The singer wrote to another fan asking for $5 back:
“Call Kickstarter and tell em yo give it bk,” she wrote.
But despite some of the jokes and comments, it’s worth noting that back in September, TLC did update their fans explaining that a LP wouldn’t be dropping until next year.
“After seeing and greeting so many of you on our tour this summer, we took a short break and now we are in the studio recording our new album with Ron Fair, coming out in 2016. The music is coming out great and it’s only with your support of TLC on Kickstarter that this is possible,” the website read. “We thank you and promise that we will continue rolling out all the Kickstarter prizes except the album by mid-October. We are moving the album back to 2016, so that we will have more time to finish the record the TLC way. Thanks as always for your love and support and we can’t wait to deliver a new record and tour next year.”
The ladies were extremely excited to involve their fans in the album making process and Chilli spoke to HipHollywood about it back in February.
“It’s right up TLC’s alley in terms of doing things outside the box,” she said. “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.”
The group even promised a sleepover with Katy Perry for those who donated over a certain amount.
Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves
To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.
But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.
“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”
In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.
When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”
Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”
Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
