Leave auntie alone, lol.


I was just watching Lady Sings The Blues the other day....

I need a movie made about her and her old triflin', but fabulous ways, lol.

LMAO! I am 10000% here for that. She was so damn extra but in the best of ways.

I always get the feeling they'd just hire Tracee to play her though.

I‘m not ruling it out but the lyrics... idk it just doesn‘t make sense in a way?
Especially the whole second verse (she likes the boys in the band...) and later the line „I‘ll be your everything if you make me a star“. Diana already was a star if not an icon.
There are other songs that most definitly are about her (leave me alone, who is it, remember the time) but I always felt this song really is about an obsessed fan/ groupie and he just named the chick Diana to mock Ms. Ross.
 
I love to tour.

I think that verse was added so it wasn't so painfully obvious...

If you wanted to be as petty as fuck you could take the line as meaning Diana wanting to sleep with guys that will keep getting her hit singles.

Speaking of Ross, she once got a beatdown in front of “just everybody,” including Betty LaVette and Martha Reeves, at the 20 Grand. She had been having an affair with Brian Holland, of the legendary Holland-Dozier-Holland team that wrote nearly all of the Supremes’ hits, and his wife, Sharon, wasn’t having it.

btw I know the official lyrics say "make me a star" but it always sounded to me like he actually sings "make me your star"

Boys in the band, make me a star: Gene Simmons, who helped get her a record deal with RCA
Also make me a star: Berry Gordy & maybe others


I stan Diane but I don't pretend there weren't shady doings. I love her tho.

All I know is Michael low key put her on blast with this song. He held nothing back and was evidently mad af.

Majority of the song fits I admit so yeah it probably is about her.
But that line still doesn‘t make sense as she‘s talking to Michael and says to him she‘ll be his everything if HE makes her a star. I really wonder now what Michael could‘ve meant by „star“.

I assume she's saying it to the man/men she's messing around with, not necessarily to Michael. Lyrics are like poetry, they're not always meant to be taken literally and they can be read in many ways.

Or he was talking about her waiting around backstage at Kiss for the man that sticks his tongue out. That man she used to help her leave Motown and get with RCA. I read this not that long ago. Someone say he's a good businessman.

Even if the lyrics do not make sense in a context to Diana Ross:

The fact alone that Michael was able to scream out "Dirty Diana" multiple times during the song, maybe was a relief of his anger at DR.

I will never forget this look AMA 1986, like threatening her to go up there and expose everything. Lol.

Let me throw this into the mix. Diana real name is Diane Ross. MJ can be heard saying diane diane diane in Dirty Diana.

I thought everyone knew this was about her. I will say, watching him perform it live was an amazing sight. He was practically having breakup sex with her on stage, and him screaming "Diana momma! Diane! Diane! Shamone!!!" Is the closest we will ever get to that damn sex tape.
