Pebbles was buried under an avalanche of social media fan rage during, and in the immediate hours following, the airing of the VH1 original movie “CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story,” which painted her as a ruthless, money-grubbing parasite who plundered the treasure chest of riches from the record-breaking girl group TLC during the early and mid-1990s.
Pebbles, who was born Perri McKissack and churned out her own monster smash hits in the 1980s, years before TLC came into existence — most particularly the joints “Girlfriend,” “Mercedes Boy,” and “Giving You the Benefit” — has snapped back at her nemesis TLC and the legion of haters who believe that she swindled the trio out of their deserved profits as the best-selling girl group of all time.
Both sides, TLC and Pebbles, have squabbled and bickered back and forth for the better part of 20 years. But on the eve of the “CrazySexyCool” movie premiere, and especially afterwards, Pebbles had a lot to say about how she feels and what she is going to do about what she considers the continual slander of her name and her musical legacy and pledges to take action against them. Take a look at what she had to say in her own words.
I’m NOT here to promote something I put on the MAP and yet have been disrespected by because of more reasons than one! Lawyers on deck. — Pebbles (@pebbles2day) October 15, 2013Pages: 1 2
