...and just to take this over the top to post 101, I am not a fan of Beyonce Knowles OR Diana Ross. Yes I was born in the 60's when the Supremes was just making their rise. But I was not a FAN of them at all. Give me Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin or Tammi Terrell ANYDAY over Diana Ross back then. However I will say that both Diana and Beyonce have talent but it is marginal for BOTH of them [KEYWORD; marginal]. Okay, I listed the players in my prior post and now here are the characters...
DIANA ROSS vs DEENA JONES
FLORANCE BALLARD vs EFFIE WHITE
MARY WILSON vs LORRELL ROBINSON
The replacement: CINDY BIRDSONG vs MICHELLE [I forgot the last name].
It just gets better and better. Oh, and I do have to add, even Diana Ross has now OPENLY confessed that Berry Gordy is the biological father to her firstborn child. Wow, Berry had a daughter by Diana Ross while he was still married to the mother of Jermaine Jackson's first wife, Hazel Gordy! Things that make you go hmmmmmmmm.

Neil, you silly rabbit,tricks are for kids!!!! Diana could never sing, however she was a showman, and could wear a gown like no other. Her acting was marginal more like "re-acting" just study her films.Gordy built a world of illision around Diane's mystique, that mixed with a little "drag queen"stage show and "WaaLaa" DIANA ROSS

rita....Now this is the absolute FUNNIEST shat I have ever seen in my entire LIFE, LMAO!!

contrary to popular belief I like Diane Ross.she was the cats meowwwww In her day.Unfotunately, that day is over.Everyone claims that she is such an Icon,with immeasurable wealth, then why at her age(93yrs.) would she take herself through the groooooling ordeal of a tour? Oh, she must prefer hotel rooms, and restaurant food, more than the comforts of her home, and her loving family.Even if its just a mini-tour does she really need the money? Oh, Oh, I know.. shes missing the likes of KnowNothing, Neil, Craig, and the rest of the "girls" Now that her teeth are looking better there are many options...Poligrip would be thrilled to have her smile that smile,AARP would love to have her as there spokesperson.The American Arthritis Foundation would "bend" at the possibility of her doing a senior "LOW IMPACT" or PILATES video, just to name a few. Not to mention for those jobs she wouldn't need paste and glue(or much of it)Consider the possibilities..........

Performing is her very life's blood. It is when she is performing that she is most alive. She is driven to do it. She loves it. Suzanne DePasse put it most succinctly - "Diana Ross was born to entertain this world."

Has Suzanne DePasse heard her sing lately? Ross barely even sings anymore(Did you catch her American Idol Performance?)She sang very little, just did a lot of posing, and microphone aiming.Ross's life's blood is to be "seen" (probably where her brother got it from) more so than "sing." Ross is a showman,not a vocalist. sorry

Ross is more like an exhibitionist, and what drives her is the same force that drives a Stripper to strip.....all eyes are on them.

What Oscar dreams. Dream girls is not the supremes story and Beyonce was not the star of the movie. She was so busy trying to be Diana Ross that, when she read the script she didn't realize Jennifer Hudson was the star of the movie and the character that triumphs in the end of the movie. I am saying all this and I think the movie is a rip off of Diana Ross and the supremes story. The movie is a tabloid account put on the big screen. Diana Ross's story is so much more inspirational then dream girls and I think she should played by a real actress. I am still waiting for her story to be put on film.
