ATLANTA — Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, the effervescent, sometimes volatile member of the Grammy-winning trio TLC, was killed in a car crash in Honduras, her record company said early Friday. Lopes, who would have turned 31 next month, was on vacation in Central America, Arista Records' spokeswoman Laura Swanson said. Lopes was reportedly among seven people in the car Thursday night and the only fatality. "No words can possibly express the sorrow and sadness I feel for this most devastating loss," said Arista president L.A. Reid, who helped shape the career of the Atlanta-based R&B group, one of the best-selling female groups in history. The company had few details, not even giving the location of the crash. TLC, which also includes Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas, had such hits as "Waterfall," "No Scrubs" and "Unpretty." Their latest album was FanMail. "We had all grown up together and were as close as a family," the surviving bandmates said in a statement. "Today we have truly lost our sister." Lopes' nickname came from her habit of replacing one lens of her glasses with a condom during performances. "No Scrubs," written by members of another Atlanta group, Xscape, drew attention for its take on underachieving men with overactive egos. "I'm looking like class and he's looking like trash," it says. It even inspired an answer song from the hip-hop group Sporty Thievz, "No Pigeons," which took aim at gold-digging women. "You birds wanna take over?" it says. "Get some cash and a Jenny Jones makeover." In 1994, Lopes pleaded guilty to arson in a fire that destroyed the million-dollar mansion of her boyfriend, former Atlanta Falcons receiver Andre Rison. Lopes was sentenced to a halfway house and five years' probation, plus a $10,000 fine. Lopes admitted she started the fire after an argument with Rison. The two later broke up, only to reunite and break up again. However, last year they announced plans to marry. In the past few months, Lopes reportedly signed a solo deal with Suge Knight's Death Row label to put out another solo project under the pseudonym, "N.I.N.A." (New Identity Not Applicable). She also helped start the group "Blaque," an R&B trio who had the hit "Bring It Home To Me." ________________________________________________ I dunno bout the rest of you guys, but that damned scrub song pisses me off...

If it was Aretha Franklin, Toni Braxton, Anita Baker, Diana Ross or Natalie Cole I would not have used "those words". When Richard Pryor put out his album, "That ******'s Crazy!", was he a racist too? What [b]IS[/b] racist is some people here saying that there are words that blacks can use without being called racist but whites can't use those exact same words without being called racist. More hypocritical, liberal PC-BS-double standards. Though I disagree, as a guest here, I will respect the rules of the site.

Macallan, it wouldn't make a damn to me even if the term were used by one of our black members. To me, the word is offensive because it denotes racism and ignorance, no matter who uses it. The Avilas' are a very non biggotted family, and it's their desire for the site to remain free of racism. I would only hope that, as their guests, we comply.

It really depends on your age I guess. I'm 23 so I know about these things. Lisa "left Eye" was a dumb bitch anyways. She never did any good and if you watch any shows about "TLC" she was always the trouble maker. (my sister told me, heh) The whole lane stayly (how ever u spell his name) was a shocker cause that same day they found him dead, I heard that the lead singer of alice and chains ( I can't believe I can't remember his name) is doing a solo thing here in Portland, and I thought to myself, "I wonder what Lane Stayly is doing right now" Well, I guess he was decomposing in a bedroom. Weird stuff. BTW, the death of Allyah 6 months ago was horrible, she was a good girl and gave to her community, did alot of charity things, and never harmed a soul. I don't give a shit about that kind of music, but she was awesome. Lisa "Left eye" can lick my balls.

Judging from his "gangsta-rap" remark, I don't think that this member has ever heard any of the music. Although some of the criteria used for Grammy awards may be questionable, and although the awards may be nothing more than conspiratorial handouts, some of the TLC lyrics may be quite inspiring. Some of the lyrics are pure materialistic rubbish, but I thing that we ought to remember that these women were performers, actresses, entertainers. Their image is what is important, and it has sold. (Oh, 'cept for that arson incident) As far as this guys's racist post, I feel that he [i]is[/i] writing as a representative of his class when he makes posts like this. No, we don't live in GB, but we do recognize some class prejudice here in the States, much like one of the posters on this thread has indicated. I am guilty of this prejudice, and it is posters like this racist that support my feelings. Takes a real tough guy to pick on a dead woman. Good thing he lives down there in the desert, so far away from me, because this kind of low-class bigot would only pollute our beautiful state.

My name is [b]The_Macallan[/b]. I HAVE listened to her "music" and much of it IS racist-gangsta-rap-skanky-ho trash. Do a google search of her quotes and lyrics and you'll be proved wrong. She hung with high-paid-low-lifes, led a wreckless life and in public showed no redeeming qualities beyond that of a dancing whore. [b]IMHO[/b], if you're going to talk about me - at least have half a testicle and use my name. Your self-righteously coy avoidance of responding directly to me, but spending your entire post railing AGAINST me shows you to be quite the cowardly twit.

The funny thing is I would normally be inclined to like her. I am a DJ with a preferrence for Urban Contemporary (Ghetto Music) and like artists like Lil'Kim, Da Brat (Well some of it), etc. But I DESPISE TLC and especially this arsonistic felon who gets away with murder due to celebrity. TLC sucks.

How do you keep a @@@@@@@ from driving a car. Hide his keys under his work boots. Why are @@@@@@@ men better lovers. Because @@@@@ men have to get up and goto work the next morning. Why won't @@@@@@@s let thier daughters marry @@@@@@@s? Because they are afraid thier grandkids will grow up to lazy to steal. What do you call 2 @@@@@@@@@@@ on a bicycle? Roll-Aids What do K-Mart and Michael Jackson have in common? They both have boys underwear half off. How do you stop a @@@@@@ baby from jumping on your bed? Put Velcro on the ceiling. How do you babysit a @@@@@@ baby? Wet his lips and stick him to the wall. If anyone thinks these jokes are rasit or sexist then you must examine you own heart because you are the ones who filled in the generic blanks with your own racist opinions.

Regardless of what you may think of her, she was someone's daughter and she is now dead. I think that it would be more appropriate to pray that her death might inspire others to change their lives, and to leave judgement to He who has the right to judge.

You guys are giving The_Macallan grief about his racist remark, yet no one pointed out CavVet's racist remark. It goes both ways. I'm probably one of the few people on here that knows the difference between a skinhead and a neo-nazi or racist skinhead. Not all skinheads are racist. Do a little research of your own and stop believing everything the Media tells you.

Cowardly twit? I didn't look at your name, but because you think that you are so important, then I will include your name here: The_Macallan I generally pay little attention to individuals on this board, but do remark particularly racially bigoted posts.

You know exactly towards what racial group those jokes are aimed, I don't think "Asian" would fit the velcro or the lips joke. How a thread about a black woman's death devolves into Macallan's & others racist shit I don't know but it did. She's f-ing dead, maybe you won't miss her but her family & others prob. will, so WTF do you take time to point out that you don't give a shit? Is your life so pathetic & devoid of self-worth that you have nothing better to do than write shit about a dead woman on an Internet board on a Friday night? LMAO! Great social life some of you have. "HEY, IT'S FRIDAY NIGHT, SINCE I HAVE NO LIFE, NO BALLS, NO WOMAN, NO FRIENDS, I'LL GET ON THIS NET BOARD AND TALK SHIT ABOUT A DEAD WOMAN & BRING UP THE FACT THAT HER SKIN IS COLORED BLACK!" Some of you are really sad sacks of shit... Pathetic. Lock this PLEASE!
