Picking Up The Tempo
2004: Boy George isn’t the first celebrity to clean the streets – Just a few years ago, Diana Ross along with another woman, both clad in orange vests and work clothes, were seen picking up trash in front of the Pavilions market in West Hollywood! The pair had a large trash can on wheels that they were pulling – it contained a broom, rake and poker to pick up papers. Community service Diana wore painter style jeans and a baseball cap with her massive hair tucked into a bandanna under the cap and big sunglasses. The women were chatting and Diana was mostly pointing out trash for the other girl to pick up. (Typical!) Eventually store employees – it’s a gay neighborhood -noticed her and came outside to stare, to Diana’s embarrassment.
