*Imagine being a life long Diana Ross fan and paying some 70 or 80 bucks to see her in concert, only to be so far away that you can't see any part of her, or even the stage itself. This was a frustrating reality for many Jamaican fans at Saturday's Air Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival in Montego Bay. The event turned ugly when host Don Topping announced Ross' request that she not be filmed for large video screens that would allow everyone at the Acquaduct Rose Hall to see her performance.

Diana was great when I saw her last year in Orange County. She looked great and people yelled out "You're beautiful!" all night long! Some guy rushed the stage and got up and security came out. Diana asked what he wanted. "What's this? Do you want to dance with me? she asked, motioning security guards away. And they danced for thirty seconds. The audience went wild. It was a packed house. I think Diana's voice is one of the most unique in popular music history. One cold never have sold that many records with Florence's or anyone else's sense of music. Her looks were always remarkable, and she was very hot when young. Go see her "Chain Reaction" video from her English #1 hit! It combines her younger days of the Supremes with an older look.

I never heard such disrepect in all my days, this woman was singing before Bob Marley was born and she's seen black men swinging by their necks from trees in america! people forget THOSE times too quickly. The fact is people still want to see this woman and her music was beautiful back in the day! people like nostalgia it helps them to REMEMBER...
Now that everyone is happy and free...(never had to pay the cost-civilrights) Technology has allowed anybody to pick up a mic and mix music and chat stupid lyrics that are disrepectful too, but the music of motown and that ERA is the most used, for films, adverts and wannabees!!!!
If black people want to be patriotic do it in the right way,
