Diana Ross is coming out to South Florida and she wants the world to know.
The 67-year-old Motown singer is bringing her live show to the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino's Hard Rock Live venue on Thursday, February 23. And if she's anything like her Supremes soul sister Mary Wilson, the Seminole Tribe of Florida better start stocking the sexagenarian's dressing room with four quarts of juice, three fruit platters, and some hot hors d'oeuvres.
Those Supremes can be huge divas sometimes.
"She's not doing any interviews," says one representative from her management team. "But I can send you photos. Text me your email address."
Awesome. We'll conduct an interview with a doctored press photo. After all, how much deeper can the real Diana Ross really be?
Well, we'll never know because Ms. Ross is obviously too busy to speak with us. What would her Facebook fans think?
Hairstylist Ralph Resta is super excited and hopes to meet other Diana Ross diehards at the show. "I got great seats," he ecstatically commented on Facebook. "Section [two], row [seven]."
French pop singer Daughter of Sunshine is totally stoked, promising to be there on February 23 when Ross slaps the Hard Rock with a "Love Hangover" and turns the crowd "Upside Down."
Diana Ross. Thursday, February 23 at 8 p.m., Hard Rock Live (5747 Seminole Way, Hollywood). Tickets cost $50-$150. Visit www.ticketmaster.com.
