Diana: “I haven’t seen ‘Dreamgirls'”

Diana Ross hasn’t seen the hit film `Dreamgirls’, even though it was inspired by her 1960s supergroup The Supremes. The film picked up the Golden Globe Award for Best Picture (ousical/Comedy), but the musical legend admits she hasn’t had time to sit down and watch it. She explains, “I haven’t seen it. I think I’ve got to go and see it quickly. I’ve only heard what everyone has said, that it’s very much my image and likeness. If I’ve had the opportunity to inspire any of these beautiful talented young people, then I’m excited about it. It’s a privilege.” Joking about reports the film mirrors her early life, the singer adds, “Maybe I should see it with my lawyer!” [18 January 2007]
