Driving home from holiday festivities with the Beloved’s family, I was deeply saddened to hear Teena Marie had passed on.
An early crush, most likely the coolest white lady ever, she will be missed .
aka Teena Maria, Lady Tee
Lady Tee gave me instant credibilty, when as a young white suburban homo- boy working in a downtown Trenton N.J. cut-rate shoe store , I professed my love for Lady Tee. Because of her talent,and perhaps her relationship with Rick James, there was an instant bond between the “cracker-fag” and my co-workers, primarily urban African American fellows.
Thank you Lady Tee.
And thank you for the music, I loved you.
