Last night, '90s R&B royalty Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins took to Twitter to defend Miley Cyrus and her penchant for baring skin. "I think people should lay off Miley a little," wrote T-Boz. "Yes she goes hard BUT what top female artist out now popular do u know with their clothes on?"

That's a bit of a 180 since November, when T-Boz told In Touch exactly the opposite. "A lot of females are pushing the sexy envelope now because they see it gets them attention,” she said at the time. “[TLC] had a way of being sexy without showing all our goody-goodies. We proved you could be successful by keeping your clothes on!"

After T-Boz's Tweet last night, the Internet got angry, as it so often does. Some users inferred that "top female artist" specifically meant Beyoncé and Rihanna, while others had no idea what the big deal was.

We fall into the latter camp. It's Sunday, people. Don't get upset, have a Bloody Mary — and creep, should you be so inclined.
