T-Boz brought the cool to CrazySexyCool, the 11-time platinum album of R&B girl group TLC, earning them four Grammy awards and bragging rights as one of the best-selling female groups of all time. Twenty years later, T-Boz and her raspy tenor voice is back with a whole new attitude. On her reality show, "Totally T-Boz", which debuted on Jan. 1, she opens up about her battle with sickle cell anemia and a nearly fatal brain tumor. Despite her personal hurdles, the music legend is putting her health issues behind her and moving forward with her music and film career. This year T-Boz, 42, will reunite with her bandmate Chilli to tour for the anniversary of their Grammy award-winning album and to executive produce a TLC biopic on Vh1. In an effort to focus more on her solo music and songwriting, T-Boz relocated from Atlanta to Los Angeles. She recently wrote "Red Planet" for Simon Cowell's X-Factor girl group, Little Mix, and will release her own track "Champion" with proceeds going toward children with blood disorders. "I’m dedicating it to anyone who had to overcome an obstacle," she tells VIBE. T-Boz (@TheRealTBOZ) says she's thankful for the public's response to the show, which averaged nearly 1 million viewers. "The response has been amazing. I didn’t expect to get so much support," she says. "You never know in this business what people will respond to. I couldn’t ask for better fans." Find out what spots she's grown to love in her new dwelling place, LA, and favorite city Atlanta.
Pink's Hot Dogs
LOS ANGELES - "I don’t go out a lot but I always love Pink’s hotdogs and chili cheese fries with yellow peppers. I have to get extra cheese and onions. It’s so good. I’ve never tasted any chili cheese fries likes theirs. But I can’t have it anymore because I’m on a diet."
This isn't your average hot dog stand. It's a pink legend. Known as the hotdog to the stars, Pink's has been serving its praised chili dogs, burgers, and cheese fries since 1939. If you don't believe the hype, just ask any of the dozens of patrons waiting on long lines just to get a taste of history. You'd expect a hot dog stand of this caliber somewhere in Coney Island, but hey, LA folk need hot dog love, too.
