    A lot of artists actually performed in apartheid-era SA. Money was more important than principle, I guess.

    Not to make it Supremes-related but it's interesting the MSC lineup performed there (S&C...

    Yeah she was raped as a teenager. Black women who have been molested and sexually assaulted are overlooked and most of the times judge. Patti LaBelle has talked about someone raping her but she...

    They really were. A&S was perfect for Diana. They just were. It's a shame Motown didn't trust in them enough to allow them to work with Diana more than they did.

    Exactly, I think with Girlfriends and, definitely, with black-ish, she has become her own legend. Not as big as her mother (which is unreachable because few artists did what Tracee's mom did) but...
  5. Well yeah, Marvin and Berry were tight. Marvin,...

    Well yeah, Marvin and Berry were tight. Marvin, Stevie & Smokey had more leeway in Motown than the other artists (Diana included). But Berry saw DR as his ticket to the "big time" as early as that...
  6. Huh? She's not a socialist. LOL

    Huh? She's not a socialist. LOL

    They're both trash. Russell was accused of rape and we know 50's an a$$hole.

    If they're mad about this, Oprah is doing something right.

    Berry really liked "Remember Me". Maybe that's why he picked it over "Surrender". If Diana had had her way, "Surrender" would've been released and it would've probably been a bigger hit. I love...

    I'm glad they didn't give Diana "Don't Leave Me This Way", as sup_fan said, LH had that sensual build up (which was pioneered by Giorgio Moroder and Donna Summer on "Love to Love You Baby" a few...

    I Hear a Symphony is just one of those chilling songs... HDH were at the heights of their songwriting powers with that one! Just like Michael Jackson used to say about "I'll Be There", I Hear a...

    "I think she tries too hard..."

    Uh, Tracee started off as a successful model, what you mean "tries too hard"? You're bold to do that to Tracee. You're wrong but bold.
  12. Flo and Mary definitely could've been given leads...

    Flo and Mary definitely could've been given leads if Motown paid more attention to them. Motown had it clear who they wanted to lead the Supremes (Diana) but if they had been worked on more, Flo and...

    Yeah, at one point in 1963, you saw Motown, Gordy and Tamla songs charting all at once, then in 1965-66, came Soul and V.I.P. along to add to Motown recordings over-saturating the market, which was...

    The artists who either married or became attached to Berry forever:

    Marvin Gaye (married Anna in 1963, adopted a son born by Denise with Anna)

    Diana Ross (was in a serious relationship with...

    I stopped caring what he had to say about Diana years ago but recently he tried to claim Florence's now middle aged daughters live on welfare despite evidence posted to the contrary. I just said what...

    I read about that. :)

    Yeah Rick Bueche. Saw him on the DR and Flo docs.

    ^ And in this house, Motown > Wall of Sound, though Be My Baby, River Deep, Mountain High and You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' are the greatest songs ever produced.
  19. I'm STILL not over that.

    I'm STILL not over that.

    Florence would've SLAYED "I'm Standing at the Crossroads of Love". I loved Diana singing it but imagine Flo on it!

    I could see Mary doing "Any Girl In Love".

    Mary should've been the sole lead...

    You’re right "Waiting...”
    I’m convinced that “My World...” stalled at #5 on the (pop) charts because of the poor mix of Mary and Flo on the backing vocals. Just listen to the 2012 remix on the...

    Interesting... I definitely won't deny this happened. I think after 1974, Flo had stopped holding grudges. Unfortunately with her early death, we'll never know what would've happened with her career...

    Anyway, Diana was performing for free so of course she didn't care. She's a 75-year-old great-grandmother now lol

    She obviously would be on her A-game during her tour.

    Berry was so hellbent to get Diana to be as big as Barbra Streisand that it made her look like a sellout. This happened as early as 1965 when the Supremes first performed at the Copacabana. Why...
