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]
