Hunger Goblet of Madness, Spice Girls v. TLC
Pop phenoms. Killer wardrobes. Nicknames galore. Feminism.
This is the Girl Group battle.
First of all, we have the personalities. Every good girl group has members with easily identifiable traits that people can relate to.
Let’s start with TLC.
Chili: the skinny, quiet, pretty one…Left-Eye: the short, quirky, loud one who rapped and did the Nelly thing before Nelly…and T-Boz: the leader of the group with a sense of humor and a severe case of bitch face.
Now Spice Girls.
That about sums it up.
I mean, SG definitely win this category. Everyone fought to be Baby Spice, and got mad when they were forced to be Ginger Spice because she was the only one with red hair. Friendships were gained and lost through these Spice Girls politics.
Next category: rapping.
“Now this is the story from A to Z…” We all rapped along with the Spice Girls, even though we had no idea what they were saying. We pretended to comprehend British slang, and our minds were blown when we realized they were saying “slam your body down and wind it all around” and not just a stream of gibberish.
But this goes to TLC. You know it’s legit when Left-Eye starts talking about how she “seen a rainbow yesterday” in “Waterfalls”. (And she also broke it down in NSYNC’s “Space Cowboy”…don’t act like you don’t remember.)
Fashion: it’s a tie.
TLC covered the whole spectrum, from the baggy clothes to the more skimpily clad. Plus, Left-Eye had that Nelly bandaid thing going on.
Spice Girls made platforms cool -which is actually unforgivable, but it made short girls happy. They dressed to their personalities, which made me want to be Sporty Spice…because sweat pants.
What this battle comes down to is girl power.
TLC taught us to say no to scrubs.
Spice Girls reminded guys that if you wanted to be our lover, you have to get with our friends.
This round goes to Spice Girls.
