Super Tuesday's BG Superstar!

There's no classic BG who is as fierce (I’m tired of that word too, but it suits so well) as Miss Diana Ross also known as The Boss! Her dynamic presence demands attention and respect. From her massive mane to her eye-catching glittery frocks, Miss Ross is a fashion icon in her own right.

She’s brought us Motown hits and disco ditties that are known internationally. Not only has she gifted us with popular hit songs, she’s also utilized her bountiful talents by gracing the big screen with cult classics like "The Wiz," "Mahogany" and "Lady Sings the Blues."

I don’t know why, but today I just felt like giving this phenomenal BG diva her props for being a living legend who paved the way for female entertainers worldwide.

5 Diana Ross Tidbits:

Her birth name is Diane Ernestine Earle Ross.

Has been nominated for 12 Grammy awards, but never won.

Was nominated for an Oscar for "Lady Sings the Blues" in 1972.

Intended to call her third daughter (born in 1975) "Chutney", yet misspelled the name as "Chudney" on the birth certificate.

Billboard Magazine named her Female Entertainer of The Century.

BGG, I don't care what anyone says about the whacky, sometimes drunk Mrs. Ross, she is just amazing. I just love her. Yes, I believe she was a bit cut throat back in the day but I believe that is the nature of that business...only the strong survive and she has done just that. No matter what her past holds, when you see her, you see stardom at its best! Thanks for the feature!

BTW, Diana is really a great actress. I saw her in a Lifetime movie in which she portrayed a lady fighting mental illness. She was fabulous. You actually forget she's the Boss!
