Chilli also hung out with Luacris last Friday (August 29) at his 'Ludaday Weekend' private dinner at his new restaurant Straits. Chilli's new album, Bi-Polar which originally had a September 2nd release has, needless to say, been pushed back. The singer, who is currently shooting more promo shots (click here) for her album cover, is supposed to announce later on this week which record label her album will be distributed on.
For the handful of you Chilli fans who have sent me emails regarding her last visit here in Tallahassee, Florida, I finally have something for you. As promised (back in April), I now have the photos of Chilli's promo stop at Tallahassee's blazing 102.3 radio station with J. Blaze on Wednesday, April 16th, as well as her attending TJDJ's Tastemakers Only DJ/Music Conference with TJ Chapman at The Moon that night where she spent most of the night meeting fans, taking pictures and signing autographs. Better late than never, right. If not, oh well. Just joking. Peep the pics below.
Rozonda 'Chilli' Thomas, the 'sexy' component in best-selling girl group TLC is featured in this month's issue of Heart & Soul magazine to dish details on her workout regimen. The singer turned 37 years old earlier this year, but the only way you'd know it is by looking at her birth certificate. And while she admits she has to actually work to keep weight on her 5 foot, 100 pound frame, Thomas insists she strives to daily to stay healthy, particularly after discovering she has acid reflux. "I'm pretty much the weight that I am, but I work out because we all should. it's healthy for you, it helps relieve stress and it's good for your heart." Chilli hikes, runs, walks and uses free weights (peep TLC's 1993 throwback video Hat 2 Da Back and you'll know what I'm talking about) to keep muscle mass on her naturally slim and shapely physique. She's adjusted to acid reflux by eliminating citrus fruits that burn her stomach and adding raw vegetables, plenty of water, soy milk and mostly organic foods to her diet. Chilli cooks and bakes, and when she does, she uses organic cane sugar for her cobblers and sweet potato pies. Daily prayer and plenty of sleep round out her beauty regimen. "You have to be disciplined. People say they don't eat right because they don't have organic foods at their grocery store or it costs too much. But if it adds 10 or 15 years to your life, it's worth the extra drive and extra penny."
