DIANA ROSS TO THE ACADEMY: ARE YOU KIDDING?
We 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.
