Please go back and read my post explaining this person. No sense for you or anyone wasting time with him. He's really not balanced.

Exactly, Hallauthor.

ATTENTION EVERYONE:

This discussion is a trap, and well-intentioned user comments are just feeding into the unbalanced behavior of a disturbed individual using multiple aliases...all to bash Diana Ross.

I agree with Hinch, we should just let this thread die.

What a great definition for gossip - "The Devil's Radio"!

Say What....? This was just some of the best music (with Diane Ross as lead singer) that dominated the 60's and was not squeezed out by the British Invasion. That was some feat to behold. I don't care what she did or did not do.... I was around during the 60's to listen to the music and not be a fly on the wall examining each groups personal sex life... Just "listen to the music"...

On a review for some compilation CD SUPREMEFAN (or his alter ego, Gafe Garcia/TWTR4EVER) went on a ridiculous rant in his "review" (I use that term loosely) and basically said Diana purposely left the Supremes and later Motown to sign with RCA, purposely put out mediocre records, and then a decade later returned back to Motown...and ALL OF THAT was a plot by Berry and Diana to collect the money from the RCA deal!!!

...and then, Jonathan, you replied and said that everything he stated was truth(!)

Of what this nutcase rants about, I'd say 20% is actual truth, 30% is conjecture and speculation and the rest is just flat out lies and libelous slander. And again, this entire discussion was not to have an objective conversation, its sole purpose was to continue his obsessive hatred. Giving him validation is just feeding into it.

SUPREMEFAN: "...the point is, was she given by Berry Gordy/Motown special preferential treatment at the label and how many more talented suffered because of it?"

Whether she was or wasn't, should anyone really care when this kind of thing goes on at every record label? The history of the music industry is littered with very talented musicians who never 'made it' while other far less talented musicians were hitting #1, being played constantly on the radio and selling out arenas and stadiums.

When you consider that, it's hard not to look at these posts and comments as attacks on Diana Ross. If they're not, then why single her out when her situation and rise to fame isn't really different from hundreds, if not thousands, of other popular musicians?

Who cares? There was nothing like that stage presence and voice. That's why she was the star and they were not. Their personal lives really aren't anyone's business but their own. . It could have been anyone backing Diana up. The recording sessions proved that. Eat that one Supremefan. And you are obviously TWTR4EVER using another name for Amazon who left this ridiculous comment (the infamous Diana hating troll on YouTube)

I don't care about Diana's personality or sexual life. And I read Mary Wilson's book. I simply liked the Supremes. I don't Ross was capable of singing great soul ballads like Etta James, At Last or a cooker like Aretha Franklin's Respect but she had her own way of delivering a song. She had a pleasant voice. Visually the Supremes were appealing and easily reached a white audience. They also hadgreat songwriters who turned out hits in their sleep. The whole combination was a winner.
