JoJo Expresses Interest In Teena Marie Biopic

Published: Sunday 12th Jul 2020 by Sam

JoJo has long proven herself a multi-hyphenate talent.

Indeed, whether it’s wowing with her four-octave voice or starring in movies, she’s proven herself super skilled.

So much so that it has some calling for her to lead a biopic about one of modern R&B’s most revered pioneers – Teena Marie.

Full story below…

Moments ago on Twitter, a fan stressed their desire for Jo to star as Marie in a movie.

Cosigning, JoJo replied “id be open to it.”


Marie was a trail-blazer over the course of her illustrious career and many referred to her as the Ivory Queen Of Soul.

The ‘Square Biz’ singer tragically died of natural causes, aged 54, in 2010 – but her legacy lives on.

We’d love to see said story chronicled on screen and wouldn’t mind seeing Jo at the forefront.

    I’d watch it.

    • Blonde July 12, 2020

      JOJO Has a great voice and everyone likes her. She’s on IG singing her face off, she’s backstage singing with Mariah. SHE NEEDS GOOD SINGLE CHOICES and the right management

  2. Only Facts July 12, 2020

    I feel so bad for JoJo. Her career is never going to be where it should. She should go after blackground for detailing her career. She’s too talented to be where she’s at. I’d be down to see her as Teena Marie though.

    • Hated for my Opinion July 12, 2020

      Ah never count people out. The right management moves can work wonders.

    • HavanaONana July 12, 2020

      Lol the clown is clowning again. JoJo has a top 3 hit with “Too Little Too Late” something #33 peaked Normani Motivation featuring 21 savage will never achieve . JoJo reaches her peak but she gonna do okay. She will be doing better numbers than your fave.

      • Lizzo & KFC July 12, 2020

        Normani career is over. Motivation is dead on arrival after all the hype and free shoutouts and charity from celebrities

      • Only Facts July 12, 2020

        The BROmance tour is over and Camila Cabellos career will be where Meghan trainors is really soon CLARKSON you nutjob 🤡

    • marilyn monh-O-E July 12, 2020

      Normani is such a hot mess… I have a feeling her debut album won’t coming and will get dropped by her label. RCA will spend more $ on Doja cat, just like when tinashe b-I-t-c-Hing about they rather spend $ on zayn

      • Only Facts July 12, 2020

        Camilas BROmance tour is cancelled and you look like a clown hiding behind different profiles CLARKSON. Your IP is public idiot 🤡

      • marilyn monh-O-E July 12, 2020

        Only flop, Nicky, tyty, oh plz, Paulo….. and all of your 50 troll fake accounts FOH!!! All accounts are created by a tranny like u, this is so childish and TGJ needs to stop this Sh#t

      • Angela Scott July 13, 2020

        I’m all for it..

  3. Sandra July 12, 2020

    I can’t take JoJo’s talent away from her, but Jessie J would be a better fit vocally.

    • Durand July 12, 2020

      Vocally that is somewhat true because Jessie is actually the better singer. JoJo would be the better fit because it’s not necessarily about the better singer but the esthetics of it all and JOJo comes closer ethically wise to Teena than Jessie and still delivers great vocal ability

  4. HavanaONana July 12, 2020

    JoJo is beautiful, I think she will do better in film and TV than music due to current climate in music business. Pop is being dominated in streams by hiphop and rap unless you are Ariana, Taylor, Camila or Dua.

    • Lizzo & KFC July 12, 2020

      I’d watch her movies or tv show but not feeling her current music. I miss the old JoJo . LOL I still remember her duet with bow wow😂😂🥰

    • Only Facts July 12, 2020

      Clarkson 🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡

    • Marcus July 12, 2020

      Well JoJo hasn’t made much pop music since like 2006? She’s more in the R&B lane….More Snoh Aalegra/Kiana Ledé than Ariana/Taylor. So a bit weird that you’d compare her to those artists. She’s doing her thing in this lane that she’s in. You can never compare R&B sales to the sales of mainstream popstars though for obvious reasons.

      • eric July 12, 2020

        Since 2006? That’s not true. “Can’t Take that Away from Me” (2010) mixtape was pop, the “Tringle” (2015) EP was pop, and “Mad Love” (2016) made Rolling Stone’s Best Pop Albums of 2016 list. The only r&b in-between those projects was the Agape mixtape in 2012 and the “Marvin’s Room” remix.

      • RootingForEverbodyBlack July 14, 2020

        Jojo is not an R&B artist. She hasn’t released a R&B body of work outside of her first album. Since the start of her career, her former label and team marketed her as more of a pop artist. She was on TRL, not 106 & Park. She also was on the Grammys and VMAs, not BET awards. By her second album, she was a full fledged pop star.

  5. Normani Love Lies July 12, 2020

    My girl Normani is the best choice for this role, idgaf what haters say. She just so amayzing !!!! She can act, sing, dance, design, and model I live you Mani!!! Motivation 4eva

    • marilyn monh-O-E July 12, 2020

      Is today April fools day? I seeing tinashe deja vu in her. Released more than 5 buzz singles and all flopped. They gave them many chances tho

      • Only Facts July 12, 2020

        Clarkson 🤡🤡🤡🤡

      • Clarks0o0ñ July 12, 2020

        @onlyshìts

        The way everybody keeps dragging u and ignoring ur irrelevant clown àss 💀💀

        Hold the L

      • marilyn monh-O-E July 12, 2020

        @only flop! We are coming for u. Let’s Drag this tranny! Come fight me! I mma uppercut yo sHxt and yo breath stinks, Yo b-u-t-t stinks.

  6. Rene Cruz July 12, 2020

    Yes. This world needs to know or be reminded of tge unmistakably real American legend we’ve lost. Absolutely. Way over due.

  7. Mike July 12, 2020

    I could see Christina Aguilera playing Teena. I’d say she’s the closest female you have to Teena of this era.

  8. AKS July 12, 2020

    As a fan since 1981 who owns every album and a writer who is working on a bio of Lady Tee, none of those mentioned could carry her. The person I’m thinking of is a great singer, knew her and can get her mannerisms and speech down pat. This role requires an undiscovered talent.

    • Fancy BISH July 12, 2020

      Truth ✅ ✅ ✅ 💯

  9. Glendoria Moore July 12, 2020

    If she could sing like Tina then ok. Remember. I never thought in a million years or have ever heard anyone sing like her. Good luck and let’s see.

  10. Edward+Norton July 12, 2020

    yes!!!!

  11. Ralph Silva July 13, 2020

    Depending what stsge of Lady Tee’s career the movie would be about. If later after success Christina Anguilla would be a better fit and she has an acting track record. If early career is the subject of the film Arianna Grande minus all that makeup would be a good choice.

  12. Latresa M Counts July 13, 2020

    I love everything about Teena Marie. First seen her in concert at the age of 7 and instantly fell in love with her voice. My dad was opening at the concert with his band and as a child I waited patiently to see my favorite artist. I still play her albums often and have introduced her legacy to my kids. Please keep her music alive!!!

  13. Norka S Brown July 13, 2020

    Jessie J or Paige Oatis

  14. Anthony Cooper July 13, 2020

    Do it, do it. Love the Ivory Queen of soul.

  15. Croy Washington July 13, 2020

    I don’t know who is JoJo. I just hope she doesn’t mess it up. We are talking about a icon here. Plus if she can sing De’jvu. She got my vote.

  16. Eric Summers July 14, 2020

    I am from Philadelphia I have loved Tina Marie every since I heard of vocal skills one of my favorite icon singers every time she came to Philly I was there rest in peace Tina Marie I love you

  17. James (JT) Taylor July 14, 2020

    I would definitely be looking forward to seeing that. Movie she was one of my favorite Vocalist and is soarly missed.

  18. Ronald A Adams July 14, 2020

    Those are big shoes to fill. Teena Marie was an icon. She had swag and flavor. If you coming with that white girl s*** stay the f*** off the big screen with that b*******.
