I was pretty hurt when the Teena Marie situation happened. Everyone was. Including her just-turned-19 year old daughter, the cutie Ms. Alia Rose. So when the kid twitwiped, then deleted her twitter, I just said my prayers in hope that she was coping alright, then I respectfully gave it some space.
But recently I really started to wonder where the kid was at and how she was doing and googled it up a little bit. Essence caught up with her a few months ago and it turns out Alia is doing alright with a great support system behind her. And even though shes picked up her moms musical talents, she’s supposedly put her own music dreams aside to finish up work on what supposedly is her mothers last album. Swipe from the Essence Interview:
ESSENCE.com: What’s next for your music career?
ROSE:Right now I’m working on putting out her next project. She finished a whole album. I have two duets with her on this album and I’ve been doing background on her last three albums. I’m more focused on her right now. I’ve been creatively sparked like I’ve never been sparked before. Nobody is going to work for me anymore, so I have to work for myself now. I’m going to work! And I don’t know when I’m going to stop.
Good. Because it will be good to see more of you, little one.
Hope this is true; cross your fingers.
