I consider myself to be a Diana Ross fan; as I read this book I was not sure if the author is a true fan. Sometimes he seemed to mock Miss Ross, poking fun at her, supposedly through other people's comments or reviews. Other times he seemed to be totally besotted by Miss Ross.
In any case, the book is very interesting, and readers will get a sense of what some people in the world think of Miss Ross; it will not necessarily enlighten the reader to the truth.
I think that we all need to remember that at the end of the day, Miss Ross and all other popular artistes are only human beings, just like us more "normal" folk, just trying to make it through this life as best as they could, one day at a time.
I recommend for fans and others alike.
The online chatters thrive on gathering storms. What makes the
exchanges riveting is the idiosyncratic - dare I say maddened? - spiel
of some exchanges. ONE MAN opined that the January 9, 2004 arraignment
of Michael Jackson was also the day that Diana Ross was her own day in
court. "This cannot be mere coincidence. This must have to do with
Michael's desire to feel closer to what Miss Ross is experiencing on
the same day. Even in these tragic times, Michael still feels he can
gain strength and comfort from his association with miss Ross:. This
same poster, among other rantings, somewhat accused Diana of being
repsonsible for June Pointer'd drug problems and even Bill Clinton's
heart problems. He constantly posts bizarre messages to "Rossnation" -
a mythical kingdom he assumes to be of one maniacal mind about Diana.
Harmless, surely, if bizarre, he is entertainment of sorts. Shen
Diana's name surfaced on "Jeopardy", he wrote: "It had to be a very
important moment for Rossnation", Mostly, he is ignored. Or told
off: "Your medication is running out once again". And the coda: Did
they drop you on your sick little head after....you were hatched"?
Ed, can your write me personally please? Thanks for this wonderful book although why didn't you mention me by name?
