Philly Student Takes TLC's "Left Eye" To Prom

TLC's Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes was in her native Philadelphia last Friday night to accompany Strawberry Mansion High School senior Malcolm Blair to his prom.

Blair, a longtime fan of TLC, invited Lopes to the formal dance in a letter which impressed Lopes so much, she accepted.

"He was asking me to go on a prom with him, to be his date," Lopes told MTV News. "But the way he had written the letter was as if [I] had already said yes. He was discussing what color we should wear, and he needed me to call him and give him my input. And so I showed the letter to my boyfriend, and I said, 'Look at this. This is so cute.' And he said, 'You know, you should go.'" [RealVideo]

You can catch more about Lopes' big night on this weekend's edition of "MTV News 1515." Lopes will also be a panelist on MTV's "Point Blank" special (a forum on guns and violence) this Friday night at 8 p.m. (ET)

Meanwhile, Lopes and her pals in TLC are set to release "Unpretty" as the second single from their hit album "Fanmail."
