Another Angel gone to soon...

Teena Marie, known as 'Ivory Queen of Soul,' dies Sunday December 26, 2010

Marie notched her first hit, "I'm A Sucker for Your Love," with the help of James on that album. But the time her second album was released, her face was known — and on the cover of the record. But there was not a backlash — she would only get more popular on her way to becoming one of R&B's most revered queens. During her tenure with Motown, the singer-songwriter and musician produced passionate love songs and funk jam songs like "Need Your Lovin'," "Behind the Groove."

Marie's voice was the main draw of her music: Pitch-perfect, piercing in its clarity and wrought with emotion, whether it was drawing from the highs of romance or the mournful moments of a love lost. But her songs, most of which she had a hand in writing, were the other major component of her success.

Tunes like "Cassanova Brown" "Portuguese Love" and "Deja Vu (I've Been Here Before)" featured more than typical platitudes on love and life, but complex thoughts with rich lyricism. "Deja vu" was a song about reincarnation.

And "Fire and Desire," a duet with James about a former couple musing about their past love, was considered a musical masterpiece and a staple of the romance block on radio stations across the country.

Marie left Motown in 1982 and her split became historic: She sued the label and the legal battle led to a law preventing record labels from holding an artist without releasing any of their music.

She went to Epic in the 1980s and had hits like "Lovergirl" and "Ooo La La La," but her lasting musical legacy would be her Motown years.

Still, she continued to record music and perform. In 2004 and 2006 she put out two well-received albums on the traditional rap label Cash Money Records, "La Dona" and "Sapphire."

James, who had a romantic relationship with Marie and also a long friendship, died in 2004. His death shook her so she said she became addicted to Vicodin, which she had been taking for pain, for about a year.

But Marie said she successfully battled that addiction. In 2008, she talked about her excitement of being honored by the R&B Foundation.

Marie was the mother of a teenage daughter who was budding singer; she would sometimes bring her daughter onstage to sing during her shows.

In 2009, she celebrated 30 years in the recording industry, and planned for many more.

"All in all, it's been a wonderful, wonderful ride," she told The Associated Press in 2008. "I don't plan on stopping anytime soon."

just 17 hours before her death, Teena was on twitter paying homage to Sarah Vaughn ending it saying she hopes she (herself) never dies...     RIP Teena -

Keyshia Cole... Will she finally wed?

Keyshia Cole was talking wedding plans during her recent visit to “The Wendy Williams Show.”

Now you know like I do that Wendy leaves no stone unturned and she couldn’t resist the urge to get Keyshia talking about her nuptials to Daniel “Boobie” Gibson of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

“We’re thinking about February, but we’re trying to see with both of our schedules. They [the Cavaliers] play seven or eight months straight,” Keyshia said before revealing the tropical locale she’s eyeing for the ceremony. “I would like to have it in Bora Bora, actually.”

Obamas not invited to the royal party...

I’m sure they have sat out of better!..... Why is it national news that the President and our First Lady was not invited to Prince Williams Wedding?  Is it set in stone somewhere that they had to be? I’m pretty sure they are not going to lose any sleep over not going to the Royal event.  Hey, I look at it like this, one less gift to buy… Prince Williams is England’s Prince not ours so to hell with him! He’s not even next in line for the throne so he’s pretty much a no body and does not count for shit anyway! (Oh shit, was I supposed to say that?..... who gone check me boo!) I’m a American! Free Speech BABY!

Gone Already!

Well dam, I just closed my eyes and it was over before it started. Is it me…or does Kim go through me like little girls go through panties… Guess taking Halle Berry’s sloppy seconds just did satisfy her after all. Well it looks like the flame has burned out, all too soon. According to Kim Kardashian, 30, and model Gabriel Aubry, 34, had a fast romance – a Lakers game, quiet nights at home and bonding over family – but the two have already gone their separate ways,

Humm, I wonder if it was just too much going on in her life for him to keep up with, she is totally different from the quiet laid back woman Halle Berry is.

Whats that old saying... Once you go..... you never go back....well DAM!


When surfing the net I came across this on "
The rumors have been around for years. She even made light about them recently. But Oprah Winfrey has once again stated flatly: "I'm not a lesbian." When will enough be enough! DAM….. f or years it had been thrown out there that Oprah was a lesbian.  I got one for you…… who the hell cares, shit now a days the bigger question is whose not!  It’s gotten to the point whereas if you can’t find any trash then you have to go with the obvious.. .and that’s call someone GAY!  With everything that Oprah has done, all the good, all the support she gives, how about pick on someone else.  If we all just take a stand and say enough is enough then the spreading of this infectious madness will soon end…. Until then, Oprah is my GIRL…. Leave her alone!

"I'm not even kind of a lesbian," the talk-show queen, 56, tells Barbara Walters in an upcoming interview on ABC. "And the reason why [the rumor] irritates me is because it means that somebody must think I'm lying. That's number one. Number two ... why would you want to hide it? That is not the way I run my life."

The rumors have focused on Winfrey's friend Gayle King. But Winfrey says that relationship is extremely close in a whole different way. "

Even though im a part of the media.... sometimes I cant stand us!

You want a piece of me!

Mike Epps Whoops Ass In A Detroit Club!!

It wasn't all laughs and fun and games for comedian/actor Mike Epps and his wife Michelle last weekend in Detroit.  The Hangover and Lottery Ticket star had to whoop some ass when Michelle's privacy was being invaded.   I never thought I'd be able to take Mike Epps seriously. But I'm sure this paparazzo does now. While Mike hosted a b-day dinner for Michelle/afterparty for his show at the Key Club in downtown Detroit last weekend (11/27), he told everyone there could be no cameras.
