It may sound corny, but I felt a piece of my music generation was gone. She gave us music that was best described in her own words (about her fashion style) "street but sweet".
She was the only woman that could make my then one year old son stop playing with toys and focus on a music video. Even to this day, I play her dvd and he comes out the room to watch all 10 videos.
She was beautiful, classy, mature and a rising star! A woman, singer, actress, model, writer; she was doing it all. She will be missed!
My all time favorite song from her is One in A Million!
