|Interview with Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes
Sister 2 Sister, November 1998
S2S: Do you care more about Monica Lewinsky or medical insurance?
Lisa: Medical Insurance
S2S: Should our leaders be perfect or should they be allowed to mess up?
Lisa: Nobody is perfect. Our leaders should be allowed to make mistakes. Part of what makes them great leaders should be based on how well they can handle, assess and fix any problem that they may or may not have caused. Name one person who is perfect in an imperfect world. Situations are bound to happen. It's how you deal with them that really matters.
S2S: Should basketball players wear short shorts?
Lisa: Basketball players should wear whatever makes them feel comfortable in terms of being a better player.
S2S: What came first, the chicken or the egg?
Lisa: The egg came first. Everthing has a begining; that doesn't necessarily mean that it has an end. The egg is the seed in this case.So you tell me which came first, the root or the tree?
S2S: If you could bring anyone from history back, who would it be and why?
Lisa: If I could bring anyone back from history, it would be Jesus. I'd like to sit down and have a few words with Him, face to face. His story was told, but by everyone but Him. Maybe that's why He is the most talked about guy in history. Where is the Book of Jesus? That's what I'd like to know, in His own words.
S2S: What's your favorite room in your home?
Lisa: My favorite room in the house is the kitchen. I make more use out of it than of any other room in the house--cook, clean, bathe, eat, sleep, fax, watch TV, talk on the phone, fuck, etc.
S2S: Who has more power, Superman or Batman?
Lisa: Superman definitely has more power. His power is of the mind, where Batman is useless without his gadgets.
S2S: In lieu of everything that has happended to President Bill Clinton, Mike Tyson and other men, do you believe men are finally being punished for being so aggressive when it comes to sex? Should men bepunished for sexual aggression?
Lisa: It is my view that justice is not equally administered to all people, point blank. All individuals, famous or not, should be punished for sexual aggression under an unbiased and impartial system.
S2S: What makes "a star" a star?
Lisa: What makes "a star" a star is the light that shines from within a person.
S2S: What's the best fabric for underwear?
Lisa: Cotton is best fabric for underwear. It is light, it breathes, it stretches, it is comfortable, and can be cut to fit any style from thongs to granny.
