Damn the gods for this crap! How many more artists with REAL talent are we're going to lose too soon?!? cry

Let me put my deep sadness in proper context for all of you. Teena is dead at only age 54. She only lived 4 years longer than Michael Jackson. It's not fair! disbelief

EDIT due to news report corrections

It's getting into the news now....Sad and after the holidays and the upcoming new years. This is too much.

'Lovergirl' Singer Teena ...es: Report

First Posted: 12-26-10 08:31 PM

UPDATE: Martin reports that Marie's manager told him that Marie's daughter found her dead in her home today, and that she suffered a seizure last month. To follow the story, head over to Martin's Twitter feed.

According to Roland Martin, R&B singer Teena Marie has passed away at the age of 54. Martin cites Marie's manager, Mike Gardner.

Philadelphia radio station WDAS, was the first to report the news; Chicago radio station V103 is also is reporting the death.

Born Marie Christine Brockert, Teena Marie rose to prominence in the late 70s and 80s, striking a musical and personal partnership with funk legend Rick James. She released 13 studio albums, six of which went platinum on the US R&B chart. Two of her albums went platinum, and six altogether were gold.

Marie's biggest hit came in 1984 with her single 'Lovergirl,' which peaked at number four on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

This just reminds me of the times Issac Hayes, Michael Jackson and Teddy Pendergrass died. I'm praying nothing else happens as we know the situation with The Queen of Soul and the Queen of Ivory Soul has now died. I'm crushed right now. I really am!

I know. Here I was holding my breath about Aretha and this just came out of left field.

It sounds like she passed on Christmas day just like JB and was found later by her daughter.

And Aretha, I just hope she's able to pull through. pray Teena was supposed to carry the torch from Aretha, Patti and 'em but she went before they did. That's sad, that's like burying a child or burying a younger sibling.

My mom kicked me off the net to get on google to verify this. And I was just about to say we were all worried about Aretha and now this.
