Talking With Diana Ross

David Nathan, Blues & Soul, September 1973

PRE-CONCEIVED notions are always hard to forget and when one has been continually conditioned to a particular notion, time makes it that much harder to break it down. For years, back to her Supremes' days, Diana Ross has laboured under the unenviable tag of being 'difficult' to work with and 'un-cooperative' with the press – an accusation frequently leveled at most top performers at one time or another.
