Teena Marie, an award-winning singer-songwriter known for her R&B
performances, has died, her manager said Sunday. The performer was 54.
Marie was found dead by her daughter after apparently dying in her sleep,
manager Mike Gardner said.
To "Tootles," "RuffNutt," and the rest of the stooges: Another thing about Teena Marie. As pint-sized as she was, she stood TALL for her rights by filing – AND WINNING – a lawsuit involving the cessation (that means ending of, stooges) of contractual obligations, which set a precedent for musicians and performers. And I'm sure that neither of you would not have been able to walk away from Teena's face having spewed out that trash without her reading you like the words to her next chart-topping singles, "'Tootles' or 'Tootsie'?" and "Peach Fuzz Nuts". "Tootles" is the signature line I remember Tootie Ramsey from the show "The Facts of Life" saying back in the day, most likely before you could even talk but were probably old enough to. What does having that tagline say about you and what you consider worth sticking your chest out about? It only makes me wonder what kind of chest you really may be sticking out. Keep on making comments like those about the wrong one – who has not left this world yet – and have it get back to them... curtains, lights out. And not in your sleep, Heaven help you.
May God be with her family and friends. God will watch over you all in this time of need, I know...,.,
