There's a story on youtube about how she was so in Awe of Rick/Motown/ the whole '1st Album THANG'
That she'd forgot Just Who [ie her] had wrote the lyrics to Deja Vu in her poetry book she gave to Rick
Super Talented but still a lil' naieve = NICE !
Another great loss to music xx

Mine will not be to add much on what has already been said about Teena Marie as an artist,but to say what I feel an artist who transcended barriers and broke stereotypes as to which 'race' do certain brands of music belong to.
Her music through the years be it her own albums,collaborations,singles,compilations,concert appearances the length of her musical career in a difficult industry is ample proof that 'Lady T' paid her musical dues and will always be a force to reckon with musically.
