I would love to see Diana Ross in a movie. What is Tyler Perry doing. He's been trying to get her for a movie for a couple of years. Can't he arrange a meeting with her to discuss his ideas for a movie with her and her people or is he just talking in the press. She has been on tour since 2010, maybe he needs to wait until her tour finishes.

I would think that Diana would want to do Tyler's movie in order to efface the memory of that horrible piece of crap she did with Brandy called "Double Platinum". It was truly awful. Thankfully, it was made for TV but regrettably it is available on DVD at Amazon. Diana hit rock bottom with "Double Platinum." Tyler's movie would really be several steps up.

Diana Ross, age 70, does not need to do a move. She needs to do one t.v. musical-reflection special with Mary Wilson and Cindy Birdsong to finally bury the hatchet.

I mean, it's not like she has that many more years. She's "passe" as it is. She's 70, people could care less about her any more.

She's a living legend whose accomplishments are numerous and appreciated. Unfortunately, because of her lack of support towards Florence Ballard, when she does "kick the bucket", many people will open champagne bottles, sing "ding-dong the witch is dead" and stomp all over her tombstone to celebrate.

LOL, they don't know Diana Ross? Then they don't know music. To know anybody from Whitney Houston to Envogue to Beyonce is to know Diana Ross. Like really. Get on it kids.
