She better not do that. Diana is such a hater and she really needs to move on. The soulful world of entertainment does not revolve around her! Learn from your peers like Pattie, Glady's and so on and gain a better attitude about yourself and life in general. Make peace with yourself first. This thing with you and Mary Wilson is crazy and its sad that the younger generation has protrayed a better image about love than you have. You're so angry at life. Get over it lady. You will NEVER be the lady that Beyonce has grown to be. Here many years lady a youngster plays a better you. Stop hating, thank goodness for your daughter's who seems to be more mature.

Are you serious? Do you really think Diana Ross has all the negative issues you attribute to her? If that were true then she wouldn't be on the A-list for movie premiers and hollywood parites. If she were such a bitch then no one would want her around. Beyonce on the other hand is a trashy no talent hack who has to rely on computer manipulation to even sound good on record/cds. How many times must we suffer through her lipsynching during concerts and television shows?

Angie how can you be so dense, this is media garbage, and your take on Diana not being the woman Beyonce is...Girl check yourselff, Beyonce wants to be Diana Ross, why would she have a shrine to her. i can only imagine that you are an illiterate person who believes the crap she reads. Diana will always be THE ULTIMATE DIVA and Beyonce can only wish she has that magic Miss Ross Has. Also i someone ripped off your silly life, you'd be mad to idiot

Your comment to Angie sound very harsh and crude after stating the facts that " this is media garbage", then you fell into being somewhat illiterate yourself. Yes Diana Ross is a Diva of the 60's which no one can take this type of shrine she and the Media has developed for her. But Diana Ross also was an actress that filmed in Lady Sings the Blues which was the Estate of Billy Holiday Diva of the 40's another Diva of her time. Their was not an despute over this matter at all, if so it was not printed in the garbage print media like today's society. Beyonce Knowles is an actor now, and she had to be judged and performed for this role as Dena in Dreamgirls just like any other talented Black female could have went for. But Beyonce Knowles was chosen. Dreamgirls comes out December 25th 2006 and we hope Diana Ross comes to the opening premiere.

Who asked you, I will always defend Diana, am tired of people like Angie comparing her to a fairly new artist who really has'nt established herself...Diana has recorded 60 albums, Beyonce 6. So I know how true fans react and we are tired of idiotic people like Angie who remarked that "DIANA BETTER NOT DO....." Like Diana has time & the power to destroy a film. So yes I will be harsh when it comes to lies and People Like Angie spreading them..........And I will be as harsh as any Diana Fan

How to better to become infamous than to try to keep Beyonce from winning an Oscar who portrays a character who reminds her of herself.She was nominated for an acadamy award for her portrayal of Billie Holliday,a singer Diana Ross looked up to.She didn't win,but to be nominated for such an award in your very first try was an amazing feat.I think she knows she could lose a lot of fans if she were able to pull this one off.I really don't think this can be done.It is probably something put out to start a contraversy.And Angie ,the situation between Diane and Mary I think will have a happy ending.

Although I am a fan of the original Supremes and of course Diana Ross, I believe that yes it is possible, she would love to prevent Beyonce from getting not just an Oscar nomination but also an Oscar award to take home with her. I believe this because Miss Ross is used getting what she wants in life except she has not been able to continue with her non-stop hit number 1 records as did in the past. I believe she is bitter about not ever winning for Best Actress, and I don't believe Diana Ross has even ever won an Grammy award with or without The Supremes, although I have read differently. Also she was sheltered totally when she was younger with the Supremes by Gordy, Depasse and practically all that was management at Motown Records, that even though she is a mother of 5 children she has not been able to remove that feeling that "I am the great Miss Ross who could do no wrong". I feel sorry for her though, she DID NOT do this to herself and in the olden days Gordy and Depasse, and all the others responsible did not know the damage this would do Diana Ross later in her oldie-but-goodie age like most people tell me Diana Ross was TORMENTED AND BRAINWASHED from Berry Gordy and who ever else Berry let torment and brainwashed Diana ross into believe that she was no not only a Black woman but she was far better than her own "Black Women", and with this contemplation on Miss Ross part, she could not ever tolerate any other beautiful black woman ( Halle Berry, Beyonce, etc )being "Praised and Respected" by the "Public", I trully wonder if she really have that good rapport with her adult daughters. I also believe some years ago when she was on ( diana ross ) VH1 Awards show, with Mary Blige (last name escapes me) and Little Kim (rap star) she felt on one of Little Kim's breast only in hopes to ruin her career but it backfired, and only for diana ross to re-create the same situation at that British Airport.

"DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE"

MOST OF US WANTED TO BECOME A PIECE OF THE GLAMOUROUS, BEAUTIFUL BLACK WOMAN, WE KNOW AS "DIANA ROSS" REMEMBER??? SHE IS THE ICON MY GENERATION ASPIRED TO BECOME LIKE.
WE HAD NO GLAMOROUS IMAGES OF BLACK WOMEN IN FILM, TV, OR MEDIA FOR YOUNG WOMEN TO ASPIRE TO.

REMEMBER THE FLIP HAIRSTYLE WEARING ROSS IN THE "SUPREMES"
EVERY BALCK GIRL ,SPORTED THIS HAIRSTYLE IN 60'S)
THE GARDENIA WEARING ROSS IN "LADY SINGS THE BLUES"
(I STILL OCASSIONALLY WEAR A GARDENIA) LOL!
THE MODEL ROSS IN "MAHOGANY" WE RUSHED OUT AND BROUGHT "MAHOGANY COLORD LIPSTICK...FASHION FAIR HAD AN ENTIRE "MAHOGANY" LINE I MODEL WELL BECAUSE SHE LET ME KNOW BLACK GIRLS COULD!
THE GLAMOUROUS MANE SHE HAS BECOME KNOWN FOR...NOW EVERY DIVA HAS MANES'DELUXE, BEFORE MOST DID NOT DARE TO...THINK ABOUT IT...THERE IS ENOUGH PIE FOR US ALL TO HAVE A SLICE.
ALL OF US "GLAMOUR GIRLS HAVE BEEN INFLUENCED BY HER STYLE IN SOME WAY, SHE WAS THE MOST POSITVE GLAMOUROUS IMAGE THAT WE SAW FOR DECADES".
HAVE YOU ALL LOST YOUR MINDS? MISS HOLIDAY PROBABLY WOULD NOT HAVE APPROVED OF DIANA PLAYING HER IN THE MOVIE IF SHE HAD BEEN ALIVE AT THE TIME OF FILMING THE MOVIE, AS MOST DID NOT UNTIL THEY SAW HER PERFORMANCE...REMEMBER??

I am about Dianna's age and also a Ross fan. However, I am very proud to be a Beyonce fan also. Beyonce has the same "appeal" on stage as Diana had when she was young. Therefore, Ross should embrace, encourage, applaude and inspire Beyonce as I do my daughter. Listen to what Patti LaBelle has told all of us "Pass It On".

Destiy's Child had a rough time of it,too.These four girls grew up together.I first saw them in April of 2000 on VH1's Divas 2000 a Tribute to Diana Ross.It was broadcast live.They sang one of their own songs,and then "Upside Down".This was a Diana Ross song that stayed no.1 on the charts for several weeks in the fall of 1980.They really loved the song and singing it.It was pure rock and roll and it really did rock.Destiny's child seem to have a promising future.They did,but they had a lot of problems too.There was a lot of turmoil in that group.Then there were only three and then some replacements.Remind you of another group?I guess where there is a lot of money and fame,there is also a lot of jelousy,egos,and other things that aren't too pretty.I wonder what a future generation looking back on this will think.Beyonce is now the star.Only time will tell.

Hey, everyone has a time and Diana has had hers. As for the Eyptian Queen Beyounce give her a break after all she is a beauty and that alone has got people by for years and as for her talent it is a ever growing piece of work like everything else in life. We have enough love for both these ladies. So let's just chill and watch their star shine in the sky.

Have all of you forgotten that "Dreamgirls" is a play based on THE SUPREMES! As I recall, there were three of them: Flo, Mary, and Diane. Diane's nasal cooing cut like a knife through the vocal stylings of Flo's soprano and Mary's alto to create a sound so unique that it will never be created again. The Supremes and their success along with Berry Gordy's promotional talents established Diane as a solo act to further his ambitions in the movies (such as "lady Sings the Blues"). Diane has had a wonderful solo career; however, I think people tend to forget that she is not the legend. THEY, THE SUPREMES are the legends. The group known as The Supremes is greater than the sum of any of it's individual parts and that includes Miss Ross.

Im trying to get this mental picture of Diana Ross at age 62........running door to door of all the Academy members in a 1965 beaded gown......hair 3 feet high with a big flip on the side.......passing out flyers that say......"Dont vote for that b..ch ; cause if you do Im gonna..... " The movie isnt even out yet.........nor are Oscar nominations. Where did this "get the b..ch" notion come from anyway???....... some idiotic tabloid trying to sell a few more copies??? Some evil drag queen with an axe to grind ??? I live and die for Diana Ross.......and frankly........I was THRILLED when they chose Miss Beyounce to play the lead singer.........anything but that god-dam Whitney Houston who couldnt move in a pair of heels to save her life. Im sure Diana Ross, Mary Wilson.......and the "other" Supremes will be at opening night. By the way.......Im listening to "You Keep Me Hangin On" as I type this..........

Miss Ross has more talent in her little finger than Bouncie will ever have!
We in the UK love Miss R, and for most of us here Miss Knowles will be forgotten in 2-3 years
Get a life and start respecting!!!!

oh first off let me say this. who is now a alcholic?... diana. who now has no career?... diana. whos hot now.... beyonce. she is where its at. and i totally agree with the lady in the first column, diana wishes she went to the level and still wishes she was on the level that beyonce is on now. bitch get a clue. diana is trashy and her diva like attitude has got just about everyone in hollywood not wanting to work with her. and what a list parties is she always on? maybe u meant beyonce?
that had to be a typo, cause the only a list parties i have seen her on the list on is for the LAPD. in conclusion, STOP HATING! BEYONCE"S HOT, diana's not. get over it.!!!!!!!
