    A Rose by any other name is still a Rose. A Songbird of the greatest melody... You will be truly missed. I love you, Teena.

    I was telling my daughter and her friends just yesterday, about seeing her for the first time at a concert here in Houston, when she came out everyone in the place were floored, I have been a huge fan of her's every since. Rest in Peace, gone but NEVER forgotten. Thank you for the beautiful memories!

    I don't know if you all remember the song "Can it be love" by Lady T? That was my all time favorite, it was on one of her first albums. I fell in love with my husband during that era. RIP Lady T, my all time female artist.

    How stupid are you. If you didn't know her why would you sterotype and make a comment like that you friggin idiot. She died in her sleep from a seizure. Go get a life and learn something about people before you just assume the worst.

    Well since you admit to not knowing her perhaps you should keep your mouth shut. Unlike other musicians, Teena Marie did not have a reputation for hard-dore drug use. She was quite talented and an energetic performer: what a sad loss for her daughter and us, her fans. R.I.P.
