Tyler Perry Wants to Work with Diana Ross


Tyler Perry is dying to work with Diana Ross but she won't give him the time of day...

Tyler tells Hollyscoop
"Diana Ross. I have the perfect role for her. And I haven't shot that movie yet because I'm waiting for her to say yes.

"It's a jazz movie set in the 1940s, and (Ross) would play a jazz singer who runs a juke joint (music venue), and I just wish she would do it."

I don't see why not, it ain't like that ole drunk bish got anything else lined up, her tacky ass was at that clive davis fiasco with Whitney's body in the room upstairs dead. I can't stand this ho, but I will give it to her she's an excellent actress. her acting in lady sings the blues was excellent, I still think she should have gotten an oscar or some type award for the way she acted the hell out that role. I like the premise of this movie, hell if that broad won't take it, Loretta Divine or even Patti Labelle would do just fine.

Tyler, just throw on a wig and play her yourself, you can do it. Stop being thirsty, Damn!

While Diana may be an excellent actress, she is a HORRIBLE person. She doesn't give the time of day to black folk unless she get something out of it (PAGING BERRY GORDY....). I'm sure Tyler can find someone else worthy to do the movie!!

^^^LOL-exactly why Sasha Fierce can so closely relate to her. Destiny's Child = The Supremes 2.0

For your information 12:22 she will be in Atlanta March 1, so clearly she has more going on than you know.

Miss Ross was the BEYONCE back in her day.
Even whitney was patterning her career after Diana's.

Real talk

I met Whitney once when New Edition and Bobby Brown was on tour, and might I say Whitney was a nasty stuck up woman. Bobby was very nice and he came up to my friends and I and started talking. Lord Bless her soul, but Whitney was a nasty woman.

he needs to face it,most of his actors are one check away from washed up. Diana Ross has the luxury most divas dont....she married Arne Naess and got 160 million dollars in that settlement. ?So she dont have to do another thing except chase her kids and wreck cars. Case closed.

you know what? i am sick and tired of the diana is beautiful shit. she is not beautiful. she always caked her face in makeup and her body in expensive, glamourous clothes but she is not beautiful. its almost like people have been saying it for so long that they believe it. without makeup, photo editing and hair she looks like the big roach in men in black.

Diana has said in an interview she is not interested in doing anyone's movie. She has nothing to prove and has twice the money Whitney Houston had so there goes that but she is on tour.

Of Course EVERY QUEEN WANTS TO WORK WITH A QUEEN LOL

I have never been crazy about Diana, but I am a fan of hers from here on. It's about time someone ignored his goofy ass.

I read a lot of hate for Tyler on here but I notice not that ya'll are ignoring all of the black folks he has kept working. I've seen all of his movies and I can honestly say that 2 were wack but the others were good or at least ok.

With all this animosity you guys should be protesting Hollywood for ALL of the wack movies with all white cast and for how they have portrayed us for years in movies where there was only 1 or 2 of us. We are routinely the first ones shown to be killed in their movies about us 99% of the time. I guess that doesn't count. I guess what they do is OK. Really?
They've had the resources to give us real stories about us but CHOSE not to. Yet Soul Plane, Friday, Next Friday etc got a green light. Where is the OUTRAGE??? But you all want to reserve your anger for Tyler Perry's efforts. It's pathetic.

If Diana doesn't want to do it that's her choice and that's ok. She will always have Lady Sings the Blues to her credit. Maybe she wanted to leave that alone. I can respect that.


BTW If a white producer made "The family that Preys" they would've received a lot of credit but since it was Tyler & you guys don't like him there is no credit for that. SMH

Just get Ceelo Green to slap a lacefront wig on an do the damn thang!

@11:48 LOL!!!!!

The Family that Preys sucked as do many of his original movies. I like the stage plays for what they are but the movies are lacking. Good for her for saying no but if she catches wind she'll get publicity from it she will be there. Diana loves a spotlight.

LMAO@6:22 Yes she does
Just like you know who Diana is way overrated in the looks and talent department. She's just a lucky ho.

@4:42

You bitter miserable hater. Get a life, and some talent and while you are at it find some joy.

The family that preys was a good movie that's why it made money ok . These are the facts

I noticed that you didn't touch the issue about what them white producers put out there for us....Yeah ok. Just like a thought.

God Bless you (in spite of your jealousy)

It's a great thing that Tyler has give blacks a chance in film, but real talk after a while you get sick of seeing the same people in his film. The film may be different, but he use's some of the same people. Use some New Black Talented Men,Women & Kids. No diss but He wants Diana and she has a beautiful daughter Tracee Ellis Ross. Is he doing this so he can corner the market on working with all A+ STARS?

I would think that Diana would want to do Tyler's movie in order to efface the memory of that horrible piece of crap she did with Brandy called "Double Platinum". It was truly awful. Thankfully, it was made for TV but regrettably it is available on DVD at Amazon. Diana hit rock bottom with "Double Platinum." Tyler's movie would really be several steps up.
