Last Days Of Left Eye

I figured this would be the best forum for it, since it's reality-ish. Did anyone see it? It's aired a couple of times already.

My life represents change." In the days leading up to her tragic death on April 25, 2002, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes was on a spiritual retreat in Honduras. She had gone to her home away from home in order to distance herself from her problems, escape the chaos of the media and to face her inner demons. With the aid of a video camera and the support from those closest to her, she documented what would become her final days in journals and private home movies.

Often viewed by the media as outspoken and controversial, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes is posthumously given the opportunity to silence her critics and set the record straight in VH1's newest Rock Doc, "Last Days of Left Eye." Produced and directed by Academy Award nominee Lauren Lazin, "Last Days of Left Eye" is filled with exclusive and never before seen footage all captured in the final month of Lisa's life. With the full support and cooperation of the Lopes family, VH1 was granted unprecedented access to Lisa's film archive and most private journals. What emerges is an intimate and surprising journey into the soul of a beautiful, talented and still-provocative artist. "Last Days of Left Eye" premieres Saturday, May 19 at 9pm* on VH1 and VH1 Soul.

I watched this and her documentary goes right up to the car crash that claimed her life. They were in the SUV she was driving, the camera pans away and the next moment there's tires screeching and the camera turns back in time to see them running off the road. It's chilling! But it's a very good documentary and you learn alot about this girl other than what the media portrayed her as.

Someone posted the video on youtube (actually a couple of people) and some people are up in arms over it. One person in particular uploaded a video of himself, cloaked in shadow, to oppose the upload of the video. It's gotten some pretty interesting comments.

Lisa was a great person. TLC wouldnt have been the same without her. Her as most artist here in the ATL are very cool... always out and about doing stuff in the community. She was someone you could walk up to and talk to without feeling like a nobody.

thanks for posting this Sharonda!!!

You're welcome! Just watching the show, you could tell she was down to earth and honest, and like you said, someone you could just walk up to and have a conversation with.

I watched this documentary and was struck by the evolution this young lady was going through. I'm glad I caught it because I was totally mistaken in believing the crash was the result of her speeding and being under the influence.

I like TLC's music and it would have been great to see where this journey she was on would have taken her. May she rest in peace.

Well spoken Mendes,

I was especially struck by the...irony isn't the right word, but the fact that just days before she died, she helped to pay for the funeral of a little boy that she'd hit and killed when he ran out in front of her vehicle. And the fact that she was having premonitions of her own death. It's very eerie. She was to be in Honduras for 30 days and died on Day 26 or 27 I believe it was.
