    If I send you a check, would you please go buy a clue??? Apparently you were very polite in holding the door for everyone else that received common sense and they ran out by the time you stood in line...poor baby 😦 Feel bad for you...

    What's that saying? "Better to be quiet and be thought an idiot than to open your mouth and remove all doubt". I know you won't get it, but just sayin'.

    I felt sooooo sad all day and did not understand why. My biggest regret is not going on the October boat cruise she performed on. Teena Marie inspired me in many ways, since i was thirteen years old, imagine she will always be my favorite artist. My heart goes out to everyone that loves her.

    I grew up listening to Teena Marie, and today is a very sad day. Her daughter found her unconscious, so I can just imagine what she is going through. She needs all of our prayers.

    I give my deepest condolences to the grieving family and wish teena RIP. However having said that, I must point out that this is some of the worst spelling of I have ever seen. Am I the only one fluent in english here?
