CHILLI IN JEZEBEL MAGAZINE; DISCUSSES 'CHILLI'S CREW'; COULD SHE BE AMERICA'S NEXT TOP ROLE MODEL?

Rozonda 'Chilli' Thomas is featured in Jezebel magazine's July 2008 issue. In the article the singer dished details on just about every aspect of her life: from her debut solo album, Bi-Polar, to her favorite places to shop (Target and Old Navy) as well as the comfort and solace of her Stone Mountain, Georgia home to her favorite dishes she likes to cook. And I don't have a problem telling yall that it was quite entertaining to be able to read an article on Chilli where she's not just talking about her new single, or her BagsByChilli handbag line or dare I say...Usher. I mean, those things, with the exception of Usher, were discussed, but fortunately they weren't the only topics being talked about...and that was, at least in my personal opinion, a welcomed change.

Anyhoo, as a member of TLC, the first biggest-selling female group (as well as my favorite) of all time, and with hit ballads such as Unpretty (from TLC's 1999 Fanmail album), a song which was recorded as an empowering song for TLC's mostly female fan base to overcome feelings of physical and mental inadequacies, it's no surprise that the members of this popular girl group can still find it within themselves to continue to bestow both 'girl power' and compassion towards their fans--old and new. Chilli says, "We touch so many lives and that’s all I’ve ever wanted to do. I want people to always remember Chilli as the girl who wanted to help and did help." And it's that same compassion that has led Thomas to create Chilli's Crew, a non-profit organization to help young women deal with self-esteem and self-image issues. Chilli says, “Young people have always and will always need guidance. It goes back to the old African proverb, ‘It takes a village to raise a child.’ We should take that seriously because it is true in so many ways. With Chilli’s Crew, I am dedicated to building strong, independent women. It goes back to what I’ve been doing the past 17 years–helping young women and girls with self-esteem, loving themselves and helping them to succeed."

Showing and proving that she possess beauty on the outside as well as on the inside, it won't be long before Chilli becomes America's Next Top Role Model.
