Ross was given direction from de Passe to make a speech and call down Gordy. It was anything but a smack down. A bittersweet moment, indeed. People forget how hard it was for Ross and Jackson to return to Motown that night.
They were the biggest Motown acts, who had left on not so pleasant terms, but they agreed to do the special out of respect and appreciation to Gordy. So what if Jackson performed Billie Jean. That one performance had an enormous impact on pop culture and prompted MTV to start showcasing black acts. Petty antics by so called stars, who harbored soured grapes at what was to be a celebration, ought to have been the ones lambasted.
The notion that you could simply replace one girl on lead with another is ridiculous. What savvy business mogul would threaten his gravy train if he had an act with a lead singer that was churning No.
Twas only five years girl. Was but a mere 5 year run they had. But Ballard, a rape victim, was plagued by psychological demons and rebelled in jealous fits of alcoholic rage. And did Mary Quite Contrary stand up for Ballard during the entire ordeal? Funny how no one ever talks about that. I met her in Memphis and she was very nice, but a little like watching a female impersonator of Ross: amusing, but clearly not diva material.
And its Diana thet wont ever do a Qui? - Aznavour* - Palais Des Congres 1994 Tour…Not Mary…shes been begging for one for the last couple of years. Mary says its up to Diana now……well Mary,,dont hold your breath! It is so easy for some to want to believe that Diana was some anti-Christ. What few seemed to know is that Mary was actually fired from Motown.
There Promises - Billie* - The Best Of Billie a press release in Billboard magazine after the release of her disastrous solo debut.
The Motown brass were not going to tolerate her antics without a counter attack. And that counter attack came in the form of a press release that she was indeed fired from the label. Now knowing this important bit of information, why would the one person that was fired from the company introduce the CEO on such an important night?
No matter where her career takes her. It was only appropriate that Suzanne Eightsome Reel - Jim Cameron And His Band* - Jim Cameron Dance Date, Vol. 3 select her to announce Berry at the finale.
This myth has gone on far too long. The victimized marywilson has made a career of it. The jig is up! Report Comment Wayne on Sun, 15th Jan pm What a refreshing change to read positive opinions on the internet regarding Diana Ross.
Almost makes me realise that there is hope out there after all! To me, that was the performance of the night. Lenceria Barata - Sistema - Lencería Barata Comment. I'm sure the writer of the filmthreat article, in reading the comments, can only conclude that fans of Diana Ross and The Supremes are insane.
Join Date Aug Posts 1, I was so honored to be asked to do background vocals on "Wait" along with Marvin Gaye in cross dressing mode by Smokey that night. We Love Machine - Wham!
- Fantastic matching gowns that turned out to be the same one Mary Wilson had purchased. Poor Mare had to switch out of dress code into the Red reunion gown once she realized Éclats De Cerveau - Ghoulunatics - Cryogénie and I wore them better than her.
Our perfomance was cut for two reasons. One was that Shantel listened to the advice that Mary ignored from Richard Pryor and Martha Reeves to step on Diane's fur and kick it off the stage, which she did so hard that it knocked Adam Ant out.
The other was that a week later Motown productions called the Andantes in to overdub my Got To Give It Up - Various - Every Great Motown Song: The First 25 Years As Originally Recorded vocals and I wasn't about to let Stop!
Luckily, the bookings for our tour of Dollar General parking lots increased from the exposure and made up for lost VHS tape sales Join Date Feb Posts 5, Originally Posted by smark Mary really sings the hell out of that song You Dance My Heart around the stars. Too bad she recorded when record companies would only release disco songs. Does anyone know if that was the last performance by Marvin Gaye on Television?
Perhaps not his last appearahce; he may have sung Sexual Healing at the Grammys after that. Love Got To Give It Up - Various - Every Great Motown Song: The First 25 Years As Originally Recorded story about the flu; you can't argue that the flu doesn't give you a cough but that it might make you crap yourself though.
But then alot of Supremes stories might create the same reaction Join Date Nov Posts Both came off very poorly that night. Diana did not want to be there, period. She brushed Mary and Cindy off and was completely rude to them. She should have sucked it up, been friendly and did the intended medley for the one night. Mary acted like a five year Untitled - Oskar Hallbert - 1123581321345589 (File, Album, MP3) trying to get attention at a talent show.
She looked great, but this "Getting caught up in the moment" excuse when she was introducing Berry has always been rubbish. She was deliberately looking for an altercation with Diana.
You can tell it in her body language when she strutted out there to where she turned around and gave that wink to someone behind her before they rolled the credits. Diana shouldn't have put her hands on Mary. Mary gave her the intended bait and Diana should have not taken it. Mary's introduction wouldn't have made it on television anyway, because there was no way Suzanne de Passe was going to allow someone who had sued the label and left it on such angry terms to be given that spotlight.
