    Diana Ross at the Apollo

    This picture was brought to my attention by a friend. It is from the Nov. 2010 issue of the Smithsonian magazine.I would give many pennies to know Diana's thoughts in this picture. What do you think?

    I don't know what she's thinking but those flat shoes on the floor probably belong to Barbara Martin. I think I read somewhere that Barbara Martin had flat feet which is the reason she left music and went into the Podiatry business.

    Don't know but there is another picture that I posted on here at the same gig with Flo on the bottom bunk asleep and Diana on the top bunk.

    Is Barbara Martin in any of the photos?

    No, Barbara Martin was long gone from the group by the time they made it to the Apollo in December '62. This photo
    was taken, I believe, in '64.

    Thank you randy_russi. Do you know why Barbara Martin left the Supremes and did she go right into Podiatry or did she sing with other groups before choosing the medical profession as her career?

    Thanks.

    Barbara Martin left the group to get married and have a family (her pregnancy was the reason she left the group in 1962).

    Thank you midnightman. When did Barbara Martin become a Podiatrist and did she ever sing publicly again after 1962?

    I wasn't aware that she was a Podiatrist but she has never sung in public again after leaving the Primettes/Supremes.

    She never even joined a choir and became a singer for Jesus?

    Was Barbara Martin the one giving Mary that foot massage in the video that was posted weeks ago?

    Interesting photo - really unique - I say, even then she knew, that she was destined for greatness - at any cost.

    Sadly, Roberta75, I think the moderator, Ralph was forced to delete the thread. Ass with all things supreme, the fans had stooped to comparing who had the better looking feet: Miss Ross or Mary.

    Well i don't know much about Mary or Diana's feet but I read somewhere that Barbara Martin had flat feet which is why she went into the Podiatry field.

    I have a very funny feeling about the way certain people ask questions on this forum, especially in this thread.
    Are the serious people on this forum being made a fool of of... or what?

    ^ Who knows? :-/

    Shouldn't we just be happy that the Supremes are even in such an institution even if it's to commemorate their time at the Apollo?
