dianarosscut122806_01.jpgWe hear that the Academy of Motion pictures had the colossal nerve to ask Diana Ross to sing one of the nominated songs from Dreamgirls on the Oscar show. Are they out of touch or WHAT? First of all, when Diana was asked by Diane Sawyer what she thought of the movie, Diana replied ” I haven’t seen it – maybe I should see it with my lawyer.” The movie is based on the Supremes, but doesn’t focus on the “Diana” character. Mary Wilson, who loved the movie, predicted Diana might not like that. Plus, as Fox’s Roger Friedman pointed out , Diana recently released an album “I Love You” and sales are dismal. We can only IMAGINE what she thought when the Academy asked her to sing a Dreamgirls song. So far, no response.

    Diana was known as the female singer who had more *sexual encounters* with more different men than any other. In other words there have been many many booty calls! Maybe that is why she looks so tired now!

    Recently I have the opportunity to talk with
    Diana Ross at the B.Hills
    library of all places.
    Diana was the sweetest person I’ve met in a long time.Her hands were loaded
    down with books. But she took the time to talk with me for about 45 minutes. We talked about her acting career and her singing career. She happens to be a GREAT ACTRESS. She IS a gift from God and still is. She has qualities like no other and she is a notable figure throughout the world and maybe other planets too! She’s top and full of LOVE. Her songs are about LOVE and since this world right now is so full of hate no one can relate to her music at the moment. Things will change after a change takes place in the White House! Praise Diana Ross!

    Excuse me but Miss Ross is a true legend as evidenced by the fact that we’re still discussing her after all these years. Who cares about the record not doing well? She will ALWAYS have a huge fan base and her following remains intact. Diana has changed in regard to her personality. Shes not that brusque, insensitive, demanding diva she once was – shes now quite mellow and kind BUT STILL THE DIVA – ALWAYS THE DIVA!

    Diana is a Legend. She is a truly talented singer. So she’s past her prime, so what. She is still (in my book) the most beautiful with or without makeup with combed hair or frizzy hair, she’s a Queen. She deserves everyone’s respect and admiration. She’s earned it.

    I don’t watch GMA, so perhaps she made the “lawyer” comment there, but it was originally made on Letterman. I only bring it up because I know how important accuracy is here.

    Nope anonymous you’re wrong. She originally made the comment on GMA (a morning show), and then made basically the same comment again later that night on Letterman. But it should be said that in both cases she made the comment in a very joking, laughing manner.

    Her album “I Love You” came out with #16 on the Billboard’s R and B List…not bad…….it would be in poor taste from anyone to ask her to sing a song from a movie that is based on her life…with no permission from her or Motown….

    I heard Diana Ross’s new CD and it is amazing. These are all the songs that I have always wanted her to sing. Especially, the title track “I Love You” and “What About Love” from the Color Purple musical. Anyway, As usual I believe the general public is just a little behind. This new collection isn’t a bunch of songs with all that wailing. Just the pure Ross artisrtry. Nevertheless, I would always welcome her rendition of “We are A Family” the song she sang at The Central Park Concert. WoW, she really looks great and sounds great.

    there is something about the cast and crew of dreamgirls that just makes me think that they are all grumpy jerks. who knows what the hell went on with that movie, but they all seem to really dislike each other and expect everyone to kiss their asses. there seems to be this total lack of humility. whatever, that film is all fiction.
    stfu and go away dreamgirls.

    A few artists, and Ross is one of them, do not rise or fall on the strength of their lastest publicity stunt. She has admirers throughout the world of every persuasion. When she appears anywhere at anytime, there is an audible gasp from the audience who sit visibly awe-struck at the mere appearance of this historical figure. Dreamgirls will be a mere footnote in future biographies by those who will continue to analyze the magnitude of her stardom.

    Diana Ross is sooooo TIRED and DATED. That RATS NEST of a hair weave is just horrifically OUT-DATED and she has worn it that way for over half a century. She NEVER COULD SING all that great and her so-called divineness is played out and annoying. The ONLY reason she got so famous back then was because no one else was around to challenge her. She was thin and scrawny and made a nice manniquin for clothes. Beyonce would have kicked her butt if she’ld of had any competition back then.

    Lawrencia, surely you are jesting OR just plain effing stupid OR both. For you to give no props to Miss Ross indicates that you know nothing about her. As for Diana’s competition? Babs Striesand, Cher, Donna Summer just to name a few – and Miss Ross outshone them all – YES EVEN BARBRA STRIESAND. Furthermore, I somehow am unable to see Beyonce or any of these so called icons of today as legends in the making. I seriously doubt we will still be discussing them 40 years after the fact. Get a clue you hater – I’d love to see what you look like. Bet you dont look as good as Diana – better recognize.

    Is this for real? I can’t see how the Academy would ask Diana to sing. What song that is nominated would she sing? I think it is in Diana’s best interests to accept the Academy’s request, however I think she should proceed with caution. Let’s just hope to see more of the boss very soon!

    The “lawyer” comment regarding Dreamgirls was made on GMA after Diana Ross was shown a series of pictures of Beyonce as Deena Jones, alongside pictures of Diana Ross herself. The style of the photos, the makeup, the hair, were all vintage Diana, and THAT’S why she made a joke about getting her lawyer.
    If, in the year 2050 we are still discussing Beyonce, THEN and ONLY THEN could you compare her to Diana Ross who has been The Diva since the 1960s.
    But don’t hold your breath. Beyonce will disappear long before then.

    Diana is one of the finest people I have ever hd the pleasure of meetin, and I was never a big fan. However, after meeting her I decided to check out her music through the years (and the videos on YouTube). She is a great talent and paved the way for many a young girl; inspirational indeed. Best of luck to her.

    Simply untrue about Diana not being able to sing. Nothing could be more false. Her voice carries the same charisma as does her person/another aspect of the total package. The frequency and timbre of her voice cut through any orchestration backing it standing out and shining as the feature of the song. America needs to give Diana Ross her just due. The rest of the wide world recognizes her great contribution – LOVE.

    I am not a huge Diana Ross fan but she has gotten a bum rap over the years. Diana Ross and the Supremes paved the way for the divas of today by crossing over and making it palatable for different races to sit in the same concert hall watching the same group, no small feat in the early 60′s. Because of their success, they have been attacked and attacked over the years. Diana is a difficult woman, no argument. But how dare they ask her to sing a song from a movie that is a “pale” copy of her life and does not tell the true story. Beyonce could not touch Diana Ross’ hem in the charisma/diva sweepstakes and that showed in her performance of the movie.
    37 years after Diana Ross left The Supremes, we are still talking about them showing their effect on musical history. However, the respect lags behind the fame. Diana Ross/Supremes have never won a Grammy!!!

    All Diana has to do is stand there and everyone that is dogging her out on this site would drop to there knees in awe…. I’ve loved her since 1964 and she is as controversial then as she is now. People either loved her or hated her. But one thing is definitely true: There has never been anyone like her and there never will be. She is a original regardless of what you may think about the hair or whatever. She copied no one, they copied her.

Perhaps all the nobodys on this site who feel smug after spitting their nasty, vitriolic comments toward her should take a step back and decide if their hateful energy is really being channeled in the right place.

    I have met the woman twice now…I have to say I hold a very special place for her. It’s true – you go ga ga when you meet a star like her. You go star struck. She deserves respect for what she has accomplished in the entertainment industry. It’s a shame that people in America – just don’t get her as an American treasure. A musical icon and a survivor. She a strong woman – this is why most people fear of her and dislike her. Her reputation as a difficult woman only is true to people who have not met her in person. She is down to earth person.

    Why do knock a person for trying to give the gift of music to the world.People are relying on second- third hand reports of Miss Ross’ grand attitude. why not bash Madonna, at 50, walking around in under garments,( would you like your granny showing her Christmas & New Years) and really cannot sing, also non singers, J.Lo, Janet Jackson, and the others that seem the weaker the voice the more dancers, background singers, stage production they provide.I’m proud to see Miss Ross continue this far from the deep racial divide of the “Chitterling Circuit” to now. She has endured great racial discrimination,including black on black for the Motown sound, marring out of her race, and quite frankly becoming a major cross over artist. You have these “singers” today that if you take away the visuals, are common, church voices, but they are young and cute so they sell cds, strip away all the production and most wouldn’t survive on American Idol. Miss Diana Ross has a unique voice that given the right producers can go and surpass most of these younger “singers”

    After reading the above comments, I can truly say there are some truly ignorant persons in this world. Persons who have no education, or awaremess that you judge an artist by what they contribute and what stands the test of time. An intelligent, educated person is aware of what constitutes accomplishments, and time is the greatest critic. Time says who survives not the ignorant masses who still do not know the difference between their elbows and their asses. That is why we have the ass, dick and tits shaking in music today: the trash bags who grab their crotches, tits and asses because those are where their brains are. We do not have to like Diane nor do we have to listen to her, but we do need to respect her. Respect her contributions and her voice. She help make it possible for blacks and the white trash to express themselves on TV and on the radio…even if the majority of blacks or white trash express themselves by what they sit on, put into their mouths or what they ingest, snort or inject.

I don’t think this sight have ever garnered soo many hits, STAR0POWER ! Diana Ross Dominated the charts from 1964 until 1986 in America,World wide you could say she dominated until the end of the 20th.CENTURY. Micheal Jackson,Oprah,Madonna are all her proteges.

    You people have to be kidding yourselves. Diana Ross’ career speaks for itself—18 # records and known around the world. The only reason people love to hate her is because she’s confident, strong, and beautiful too boot! It’s really sad that people allow what they THINK they know about Diana Ross to blind them to the FACT that Diana is a talented artist. And yes, she has made mistakes and continues to do so; but as always, speculation is the rule when it comes to Diana Ross. The same type of comments happened before she saw Dreamgirls, but when she did see it and made a statement about; it was ALL positive. So there are obviously a buncy of people who have commented in a negative manner before anything from Diana Ross herself has responded to the Academy—that in and of itself shows that Ms. Ross could never please those who have decided to hate her. Too bad for them; they are missing wonderful work from a talented artist.

Besides, I think the Academy does have alot of nerve to ask Miss Ross to sing a nominated song to a movie that wrongly depicts the Supremes legacy! People who don’t know the real story of the Supremes are confused and will interpret the Dreamgirls as the truth, just like these below sea level educated lowlife haters in here where they’re only education is through word of mouth of an eel living under a rock! I love the movie, I thought it was great, but I know it’s not the story of the Supremes and Motown. They snubbed her of the award to Lady Sings The Blues and now this???? I don’t think she should do it.

    Who cares about Fox News. Only fools watch Fox. Janet you need to get your facts straight. Miss Ross CD is doing very well. These rags magazine stick their nose in everyone business. Miss Ross is the only true Diva. Talk about Barbara, she is an ass hole as well. Just because Ms.Ross is black,and successful she get a bad rap. Madonna isn’t nice, Neither is Aretha. Any of these women can be a bitch at times. So lay off Ms.Ross. She pave the way for all cross over artists. Not just black ones. She is Still The Boss. So get the fact right. She have more hits then any female singer in the world. More than Mariah, Janet, Whitney, Celine, Aretha, Patti, Gladys, Dionne, Cher, Barbara, Britney,and whomever else you want to name. So her talent,and history speak for itself.

    I met Diana Ross in October, 2005 at the Playboy Mansion. I talked to her for a few minutes and she was so sweet and gracious and took several pictures with me. Her son Ross was with her and he was also very nice to me and shook my hand before I left them. This, as you can imagine, was a very magical moment for me. Her contribution to American culture and her music speak for themselves….and yes, “I Love You” is no exception. It is a wonderful collection of songs sung beautfifully by a great singer. No one looks or sounds like her. You haters are disgusting. Get a life.

My father never returned, but Diana’s music certainly healed. Bless you Diana and your lovely family.

    Diana is a true AMERICAN CLASSIC. LEGEND, LEGEND, LEGEND. People hate strong Black People. Times have changed baby. Accept and move on.

A long the way taking hater fans to witness the MAGIC, and before you know it, they are screaming and dancing faster and louder than me. What does that tell you. Go head on Miss Ross, you dont have to prove anything to anybody. YOu made it, and we are still discussing you today after 40 plus years. People love to see artist at the top to tear them down. 18 # 1 Hits, I guess that does not mean anything. Oscar Nomination. That for sure dont mean nothing. Tony Award, to minor, dont mean a damn thing. Golden Globe, just collecting dust on your mantel. What more do these haters want. Enjoy your life.

    You guys take this way too seriously. Diana Ross looks great at 62. I don’t care too much for the album though. But it good to see she still around and getting respect from the industry. Every Day was her best work since her day if only she’d promoted like she did I love you , she’d have a comeback album some of her best songs remain unheard of. She should’ve gone on Oprah to promote I love you that would’ve increase her sales. She hasn’t seen the top 40 since the 80s so good for her.

    Anyone who has had the privilage to see her on stage knows what kind of power she posseses – there are not many singers that will leave a stage and actually sing to thier audience. Mary Wilson has slammed Diana evey which way and why? Jealousy? Diana has born the brunt of every slam and yet she’s still here.I would love to see her hit #1 and be ontop again!

    Miss Ross is one of the world’s greatest entertainers – bar NONE. It would be awesome for her to sing ANY song at the Academy Awards presentation. She was a living legend thirty seven years ago – now she’s an eternal legend. God Bless Miss Ross.

    I can’t believe all the negative comments regarding Diana Ross. I also can’t believe people are questing her talent. Just to set the record straight, Ross is in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most successful female singer of all time. People should stop tearing her down and give her props for her accomplishments as well as the wonderful music she’s given us for the last forty-plus years.

    Diana has worked very hard for her successful career. When she sings anything that is written by composers Ashford & Simpson, her stars shines even brighter…! Love you Diana….keep at it girl!

    The legend of the Supremes will always be greater than the sum of any of its parts. Diane will always be one of those parts, a knock-off of the original ensemble. She won’t give credit to the Supremes and she wants it all for herself. On “Inside the Actors Studio” she uses the word “I” when referring to the Supremes (“I” recorded Baby Love). She actually had the nerve to say that Florence left the Supremes to start a family and that she was never aware of any resentment toward her in the group. That lying and her selfishness is what makes people criticize her. She pits her solo career as “Diana Ross” against her career with The Supremes and She’ll lose everytime. Maybe she really believes that it was all about her. Maybe she IS mentally ill and deluded.

    First up as far as Diana Ross goes, where does anybody get off being so mean and hateful? She’s a legend and a superstar all over the world and up until recently in the Guinness Book of Records as the most successful female artist of all time for the longest length of time as well. Her talent speaks for itself and if anyone who has been fortunate enough to see her live shows, movies, tv specials, the will attest to her artistry. She is in a class with Sinatra, Stresiand, Tony Bennett and anyone who truly knows performers will admit to that. Also, anyone who has ever seen her in concert knows that Ross is one of the most giving, nicest performers and who lives and feeds off the energy of her fans and is ALWAYS gracious and nice to everyone. How she operates as far as a businesswoman is not my or really anybody’s concern. Showbusiness is tough enough and to be a woman, a black woman, I’m sure has not been easy. Personally, looking at others in the business she is no better or worse than many if we are to believe all the accusations I have heard and read. And, I find it funny that for some reason the press never decides to print all of her vast accomplisments as an artist and humanitarian as well as being extremely generous to her ex band mates Mary Wilson, Florence Ballard and her family and Cindy Birdsong as well. Maybe if people stopped reading The National Enquirer and Star magazine and stopped listening to Mary Wilson (ok Mary, give up the jealousy and face facts you wouldn’t have made the millions you made and squandered if it were for Ross) they would learn who Diana Ross really is. If anyone really cares enough to learn the facts that are unbiased and good with the bad, I strongly suggest they read the newest biography on Ross called Diana Ross…A Liftime To Get Here: The Original Dreamgirl by Tom Adrahtas which was released November 30, 2006. You might not come away loving her, but you certainly will be more informed and at least respect her and the woman’s enormous talent and drive and you will have learned about the truth about all the many unfair accusations and “stories” told and spread by supposed friends and colleagues. As far as her new album I Love You goes, it is selling respectably and I wouldn’t be surprised that sales will be boosted back up after next week with her appearance on Jay Leno and then American Idol on March 14. The cd is a good solid cd which shows Diana in very good voice with quite a few good and great selections with a few misses as well as to be expected by anyone today. Bottom line, Diana Ross is a true treasure and talent that we have been lucky to have come from our great country and wealth of talent. It’s a shame that in the USA we easily cast aside some of our legends for momentary “superstars”. I’m glad to see that everyone else in the world, including England where she was recently voted top and favorite female artist of all time along with the Beatles over anyone else in the business. So to all of you Diana haters, stop acting live the Diva bitches that you think Diana is and remember that though she’s never won a Grammy, numbers tell the story. The Beatles, Elvis and Diana have the numbers. It’s there, feel free to look it up. And they are all still going strong, only she’s survived the ups and downs that come with a life in showbusiness. Give credit where credit is due. She’s come out on top and is a good person and mother with an incredible career behind her and still in front of her. Thank you Diana for all the music and performances that you’ve given the world and your true fans. By the way, I’m a straight, white male if that matters. So let’s not go there that the only fans she has are gay males. You’ve obviously never seen her in concert. All ages, all races, all everything. The true tell signs of a real superstar is longevity and she’s been around selling out concerts for over 45 years now. Diana, your due hasn’t even begun yet. All the best,
    Rich from Conshohocken, PA

    The legend of THE SUPREMES is greater than the sum of its parts. Although, Diane was responsible for much of the group’s success, she is still one of the parts….a knock-off of the original trio. Those girls were so important that they are still talked about today. Despite the fact that Diane has not had a hit in over 20 years and Mary has never had a post-supreme hit, they are both legends. They don’t need “hits” because they already had them (more than anyone else). If Diane would just acknowledge that it wasn’t all about her, maybe she wouldn’t be the subject of such negative press. Every time she “pits” her solo name up against the legendary SUPREMES, she loses. Why can’t she figure that out? Does she surround herself with deluded people who tell her what she wants to hear? I don’t think that she’ll ever learn.

    Wiggle-butt can sing her ass off any time she wants. But what is more important is the way she has touched so many lives with love. Rare is the person who can endure hatred and still personify love.
    I, for one, believe she is an angel on earth, and can’t wait to hear her golden voice later this month in Melbourne.
    C’mon people, lighten up. Everyone makes mistakes sometimes, but who are we to judge?
    I think it is extremely rude to pubically criticize people you don’t even know.
    As a white male growing up in the South in 1964, I can tell you that my wife and I both agree that Diane has done more to advance racial equality than almost anyone who is reading this now.
    Look at the larger picture here and then go look in the mirror.
    Be respectful and be nice to one another. Life is short.
