The "ivory queen of soul" died on December 26 at her home in Pasadena, California. She was 54.

Best known for hits like "Lovergirl," "Square Biz," and "I Need Your Lovin'," Marie -- also known as Mary Christine Brockert -- wrote, produced, and recorded many of her own songs. Reports are circulating that Sean Combs and Mary J. Blige are leading tributes to the singer and songwriter.

Watch this more recent video of Teena Marie here. To quote The Pitch's lovely Nadia Pflaum: "Awww, Teena Marie still had it in her 50s...but kinda looked like any middle-aged lady you'd see on the bus." You'll be missed, Teena Marie.
