Happy Birthday Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes!!

Lisa Nicole Lopes (May 27, 1971 – April 25, 2002), better known by her stage name Left Eye, was an American rapper, singer, dancer, songwriter, and member of the R&B girl group TLC.

Lopes contributed her own self-written raps to many of TLC’s past singles, including “Ain’t 2 Proud 2 Beg“, “What About Your Friends“, “Hat 2 da Back“, “Waterfalls” and “Girl Talk“. She was also known for wearing a pair of glasses with a condom in place of the left eye lens in the beginning of her career, which was one of the ways she promoted safe sex. Lopes got the nickname “Left Eye” from Michael Bivins of Bel Biv Devoe, who often commented, “It’s your left eye! There’s something about your left eye!” He thought it was “slantier” than the other eye, and therefore prettier. He began to call her “Left Eye.” Lisa’s original nickname was QT, but when she needed a nickname beginning with L she chose Left Eye.[3]
