    @zoninoff why do ppl like u have to turn and say something so stupid during a time of tragedy. One death has nothing to do with the other. If you really want to show your respects, next time keep the dumb comments to yourself and just say RIP. Anyway lady T will be greatly missed. Beautiful voice, beautiful songs, and beautiful women. You will always be our lover girl
