Miley Cyrus may have stole ‘twerking’ from the hip-hop culture but she decided to give back for Halloween 2013.
The rambunctious performer decided to pay homage to rap icon Lil Kim by rocking the rapper’s infamous 1999 MTV Video Music Awards look.

Rozonda ‘Chilli’ Thomas
of TLC is speaking out against online bullying… more specifically she’s addressingrecent online attacks of her young son, Tron.
I’ve been out of the loop and haven’t really seen any negative press about the teen, but apparently one site in particular has rubbed Chilli the wrong in their coverage of her son.
Chilli’s long time publicist, Christal Jordan of Enchanted PR, reached out and the urgency of her words made me stop and take notice:
I hope you will take a moment to read the letter in the link below from my client Chilli, from the group TLC. Recently the group has been in the headlines with the success of the VH1 biopic (CLICK HERE if you missed that) and we appreciate the constant support for TLC and their projects. However, MediaTakeOut has repeatedly attacked Chilli’s 16 year old son.
I spoke with him last week, from a professional standpoint and explained to him that as a PR for his mother I advise her on how we handle her image. Many times I advise her against speaking out, however in this instance I found myself thinking less with my professional mind and instead speaking from a mother’s perspective.
