Well, Jan, judging from your reply, I really struck a nerve with you, & I never thought you would eventually hate me. I will admit that I will never know the "inner workings" of Marvin's family. But if Zeola's play offended you so much the first time around, then why didn't you take the proper legal procedures & have the play blocked somehow, or asked for a cut of the royalties? Same goes for her book(s), & merchandise licensing. Also, if Zeola wasn't there for Marvin all the time, then who was? Didn't you try to talk to Marvin & maybe get some professional help for him? I'm sure he would have greatly appreciated it, from you. Again, I'll really never know what went on, I'm only making assumptions. And about M3--I only meant that it's wrong to call family members dirty names, no matter how bad you disagree with them. There are some family members--on my mom's & dad's sides--that I have disagreements with, but I don't call them "lying beasts" or any other names. Oh, while on the subject of

(continued)...feel free to call me a "piece of work", or whatever worse. I'm used to being called names. In fact, my love of Marvin's music subjected me to name- calling & bullying since childhood. I'm considered a "hipster", and an societal outcast. But when it brings most people down & out, I'm still standing. I don't care if you hate me, but I do love you for providing love and companionship to Marvin, and for being a good mother to Nona & Frankie. Also, I'm glad you joined this board to share your thoughts--no hate on that!

I have to agree with Janis... I think an unauthorized book by a sibling that uses false information or very damning accusations is not to be trusted. Zeola did say "third or fourth time", which should've struck me as odd when I first heard this. Now I wonder about that documentary she claimed she was doing now... anything that disrespects someone's supposed "beloved" brother's memory especially with rumors about Janis, her family and even Marvin's own children (III notwithstanding) should've always be taken with grains of salt. You got my support on this Janis.

Oops! I didn't see your thanks on my compliment for your work on "Got To Give It Up" until a min. ago--but you're very welcome! Marvin should have given you a chance to sing more often. Most contraltos don't sound very well & are often out-of-tune, but yours fit the key of the song perfectly.

Dear A,
I don't know you to hate you. You're taking it a bit over the top. I'm not going to get into why certain things have or haven't happened. Its what will happen looking forward. Please don't make assumptions. MG3 could have said MUCH worse but he didn't. Apologies for calling you a piece of work. My bad. When a person feels attacked you tend to strike back. Sorry you were bullied for listening to a genius. Marvin was my husband and I love him still. I see him every time I look at our children and now our grandson. This is a very kind and gracious note and I appreciate it.
To Timmy, Zeola is Zeola. None of this is new. Nuff said on that. Salt shaker right here. LOL

Never liked my vocals but it was the one and only time Marvin let me sing. I cherish the memory but its hard to listen to for me.

Anyway, Ms. A, thank you for expressing yourself and Timmy, you're the best! Good night all. Let's all thank God that President Obama and his family sleep in the White House tonight!!

I agree. It seems like whenever people talk about Marvin there's always a few people that are enthralled with his death. He was an amazing artist and left so much wonderful music for us to cherish. Why are people so obsessed with his death. Most of the time its people that don't understand the dynamics of a black household.

I do wish Janis would write a book. I would love to know what it was like to live with Marvin and have children with such a beautiful spirit.

Because people have real morbid interests. Harry Weinger was one of the first people to actually focus on the music when most of the discussion about Marvin post-death has been about his personal life and his murder (that's the reason why I personally gave those sections of his life their own Wikipedia pages rather than put all of it in the MG page. The Marvin article now only focuses on his music for the most part).
