      Ignorant post. People like this just post things to rile you up. Whatever home slice. What goes around comes around. When you pass, I imagine some of us will say "eh, who cares" about you.

    @Mmmmm Well, I don't know who Tina Marie is, but I do love TEENA Marie.
    Sorry to hear of her passing. She was a very good singer, who held her own in the soul/R&B world, something that wasn't always easy to do when she started.

    This is sad
    And I am tired of the hoodlums who constantly trash everything in our culture, and deride anyone older than they
    I guess then that we won't have you to deal with long, as you hate anyone older!
    Til then, why don't you keep your annoyance at anyone getting attention besides you, to yourselves, so that I can get the news?! About real people who've actually ACCOMPLISHED something or tried to
    Thanks!
