Teena Marie Blasts Chappelle For Rick James Skit
R+B legend TEENA MARIE has blasted comedian DAVE CHAPPELLE for his offensive take on her late lover RICK JAMES. The comic came up with his famous "I'm Rick James, b**ch!" for a skit on his CHAPPELLE'S SHOW - but Teena Marie didn't find it amusing. She's upset that her ex-lover's legacy has been tainted by his comedy portrayal as a pimp. The FIRE + DESIRE singer says, "It affected me negatively because Rick never said, 'I'm Rick James, b**ch!' He said, 'I'm Rick MF James.' "They took their own thing and made it up, because I guess they wanted to make the money. It's an affront to me and his memory to think that's who he was."
