Today In B'Days


Diana Ross is 64 years old, her weave 64 pounds.

I wonder why she stopped acting? After Lady Sings The Blues, Mahogany, and The Wiz, that was all she wrote. Her ego is pretty huge, tho, so after the critics savaged those last two movies she probably just said forget it. (take note Madonna).

Anyhoo, Her daughter Rhonda is a soap opera actress. We know Traci Ross from "Girlfriends", who is a fabulous dresser, imo. Son, zesty actor favorite Evan "La Micheal" Ross, is probably dipping into mom and sis' closet when no one is looking....



Here is a clip of Diana and Michael Jackson easin' on down the road in "The Wiz", with Michael dancing and singing circles around her ass:

Wooo...Diana's looking gnarly in that pic! I think she's a terrific actress, though. She should have been the first to win Best Actress. Sucks.

Invisible Woman said...

Yeah, she really should've won for Lady sings The Blues. It was a tour de force as they say. I bet no one can even remember who won that year.

I heart lil Evan Ross!

Danielle said...

I loved Diana in Lady Sings The Blues and Mahogany. I really love The Wiz and I miss the old Michael.

Thanks for the memories.

I do, do...Liza for Cabaret. Loved that movie and the performance, but not more than Diana. She should have won.

You know you wrong! Lol!

MsMarvalus said...

Girl, I could watch The Wiz until I die, you hear me!? I agree with Danielle though...sholl make me miss Michael pre-white lady...

Thembi said...

First I have to say, why you do that to her with that photo?

Second, I love brown women who have light babies, cant front on that!

Third "do you want me to cut my arm off" - billy dee williams

Fourth - Lets remember, its easy to act with your eyes when thats all youve got and youre depending on youth and not Olay Regenerist to keep em open.

Im spent.

i believe michael jackson wants to be diana ross -- a really light version but her nonetheless. they have the same tone and inflection in their voices. can't sleep on ms. ross' career though. happy birthday!

Invisible Woman said...

@vrs: welcome; emphasis on "lil", lol

@danielle: I think we all miss the old Michael

@bwu: oh yeah! Well, if Diana had to lose to someone, I'm glad it was Liza in that---she was really good. Wow, that was a tough year...

@paula: yeah, I know...but you know how I do!

Invisible Woman said...

@Ms. M: I just wish that film had a better cinematographer; it would have held up so much better

@ Thembi: you KNOW you are wrong for #4! But seriously, I hope to look as good at 64, Regenerist or not (without the weave, of course)

@jj: people used to say he wanted to look like Diana, and he did for a time, but now that look is about ten exits back...

[sigh] Mike hasn't sung like that in years. He was incredible back then! I remember watching this at the $1 movie back in the day. My cousin and I were standing up dancing on this scene. It has to be my favorite part of the movie. That and when Mike sings "You Can't Win"

Invisible Woman said...

@Kim: I love that song by Mike too!
