Teena Marie: March 5, 1956 - December 26, 2010

It has been reported on Twitter tonight that singer, Teena Marie, has died. While there hasn't been any confirmation through news sources, there have been some celebrity confirmations and a few radio DJ's have reported her death. I cannot find any actual confirmation, but if this is true, I am saddened by the news. She was only 54. I loved her signature voice and that she was, to me, the best white R&B singer ever. My favorite songs were "Square Biz" (if you remember it was also remixed by Foxy Brown and called "Firm Biz".), "Ooh La la la", and my all-time fave "Fire & Desire".

Below are some of the tweets I have been reading regarding Teena Marie...

But Marie's publicist, Lynn Jeter, told me that a month ago, Teena Marie suffered a grand mal seizure while watching a movie in her bed.
