Seeming to confirm most of the alarmist speculation in the wake of Tupac.0, '90s R&B trio TLC has announced it will reunite for a 2012 tour, solemnly honoring the 10-year anniversary of the death of Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes by revealing it will turn her into a video puppet and force her to sing once more with the group she fought with and tried to leave before dying in a car crash. Unlike Tupac's Coachella performance, however— and much like all have mutually agreed in the weeks since—the word "hologram" has not been uttered, with TMZ reporting Lopes will instead make her appearance via archival footage projected on a big screen in a more old-fashioned, Natalie Cole-style form of manipulation. Indeed, dig this, there was a prophecy: Just before Lopes died, her last words were, "Death is but a door. Time is but a window. I'll be back in video form, to help my estranged bandmates collect an easy paycheck."
