    Ever since the sports thread wars I have sensed a special connection between [edit] & Wile. Like the connection oil has to water. I almost can't speak of it. Wait....my eyes are misting. ~asq
    Let’s just stay together and tell the world to kiss our ass. ~P

    A couple of people on my FB posted that article.

    I'm shocked. I've been a fan since I was a child. Literally. I saw her perform live twice and she was always exceptional. May she R.I.P.

    I think she has two daughters, actually. One of them is in her early 20's. I think the younger one is a teenager at this point.

    Sad.

    Little ol' me, Wile??

    My heart hurts, though. I'm so sad. I loved her and to think that she was excited about her trip here to Atlanta this week to perform. I wanted to go see her.

    I'm so upset. I went straight to YouTube to listen to her songs. Some folks will not know who she is but she's forever my favorite "Vanilla Child". No telling how many times I jammed to her in my car on the way to work. Looking forward to morning radio in the morning.

    RIP - Ms. Teena

    NOO! Not Teena Marie! May she RIP. She was my favorite soul singer. I was not expecting to hear this unfortunate news. God has claimed his angel now and may she rest in peace with the many greats who are in heaven now.

    I found out this morning while listening to the Tom Joyner Morning Show. They've been playing her songs. R.I.P. Teena Marie.

    omg, I was just coming over to post this. I'm in shock. She was so young. I loved her. She was the jam back in the day. I saw her recently on a show, I think we talked about it here. She looked great.

    Rest in peace, Teena. I know you'll be jamming with Rick in heaven.

    I grew up in the 80's but I only know one song of hers - Lover Girl. Strange. It's sad she died so young.

    I know.

    My handle is attributed to her. One of her nicknames was "Lady T." Since my first name begins with V and Teena was one of my favorites, to honor her, I just started calling myself Lady V. I've had the handle all over the internet for years. I'm never getting rid of it.

    I read that she had a seizure last month, was put on meds, it made her feel suicidal so she reduced the dosage herself, and then she died in her sleep a few days ago. Sad!
    I loved "Lover Girl"
    RIP Teena Marie :(
    That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

    I am a sulfate washing, cone slabbing, curly lovin' s.o.b. The CG police haven't caught me yet.

    This was my jam right here:

    YouTube - Teena Marie - Midnight Magnet

    "Midnight Magnet"

    I remember standing in the field at my house, and the people at a house like way off on the next road were having a party, and this song was playing (I grew up in a really rural area) you could hear it through the woods. It's been my fave ever since *r.i.p.*

    I'm an old school girl and the time when Rick James and Teena Marie were doing their thing was one of the best times of my life. I even had friends that used to call me "Teena" because they figured I could dance better than a white girl should. Hearing about her death made me sad and feel just a bit older. :(
