If something happens to Aretha now I'd seriously lose it. In all honesty.

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!

[Edited 12/26/10 17:55pm]

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.

What the hell is going on with Aretha?

She's recovering from pancreatic cancer.

I was just sitting here listening to the Quiet Storm on WHUR, and it didn't even hit me that they were playing so much of her. Cuz as we all know, that's never a good sign. I logged on just to see if it's true. sad

According to Sheila E.'s Twitter page, her daughter just had a birthday YESTERDAY, too!! Yeah, the one who found her. May God bless her and her family and friends. God, this is SO sad.

Apparently pancreatic cancer. She was released from the hospital earlier this month following surgery.

I looked up her Twitter account and it appears Teena authored a Tweet 11 hours ago. Very strange indeed. Then again, I guess I'm still in denial.

The irony is that Teddy was THE first recording artist to died in 2010 (if I'm not mistaken). So far, Teena is THE last recording artist to go in 2010.

You could still die even after your last tweet from the previous night. Some people post their last status on Facebook or Twitter on either the actual day they die or afterwards.

I'm right now shaking my head at the ignorance over at Twitter... reminded me of what happened when Teddy died and people were not knowing who he was. Shame these kids act dumb when some legend dies.

I'm thinking health issues that weren't brought up in the public. I didn't know Solomon Burke was ill but he died on the spot on an airplane in September. You realized how Aretha is basically trying to cover people from talking about her health.

It's ridiculous isn't it? People need to educate themselves. I remember when Lena died some of my friends on facebook were like who? You should know who the hell Lena Horne is. It still pisses me off that her death didn't get the play it deserved to get.

In terms of Motown legends, Teena died before Diana Ross AND Martha Reeves. This equal the sadness of Michael leaving before Smokey Robinson AND Stevie Wonder.

They get older. It's a sad part of life. Noone can be 25 forever.

We all have health problems, and addictions, and age.

We'll all have the art to remember them by.

Grammy nominated singer Teena Marie -- once known as Rick James' protégée -- died in her sleep last night at the age of 54 ... TMZ has confirmed with Teena's rep Lynn Jeter.

So far it's unclear what caused the singer's death.

Marie was nominated for a Grammy four times ... her first top ten hit was "I'm Just a Sucker for Your Love."

Story developing...

They need to cut off 106 & Park and some of these kids are actually in our age group.

I cannot breathe right now. This ain't real... sad I grew up to her sound in my house. When I'm all alone, I sing with her out loud....and I have been DYING for the chance to see her in concert.

I cannot believe this.
