I don't remember exact details, but she came across as not likeable. There was really no connection between her and her fans. She really wanted to be an actress and her little role in Speed 2 got to her head. And at times was dismissive of her singing career.

The two things that stick out now are:

She no showed at an album signing (for her first album, no less). No warning, no heads up. And then never apologized or explained why. Fans went in on her. When that happened, the label shut down the message board for awhile.

Hooking up with Grant Hill, and then his mother becoming her manager. That didn't go down well. Most thought Tamia was nothing but a celeb social climber, and bagging Hill was a huge get for her. There was just a lot of ickyness sounding that.

I do think a lot has to do with the fact that fans thought her debut would be more like the Quincy song, but we ended up with Jermaine Dupri productions and a sexier image.
