Overview

Call Her Miss Ross: The Unauthorized Biography of Diana Ross by J. Randy Taraborrelli, Kensington Publishing Corporation Staff

She was Motown's brightest star, the one with guts enough and ambition enough to make her dreams come true, no matter where they took her. Rules that apply to others have never applied to Diana Ross. She won't let them.
CALL HER MISS ROSS goes behind the footlights and stage facade, behind the broad smile and beautiful voice, for an exclusive look at the real Diana. J. Randy Taraborrelli has interviewed over 400 people and uncovered stories that have never been told before. The ultimate control maven, she became the star of The Supremes without giving Mary Wilson and Florence Ballard a second throught, but also gave them both money when they ended up broke; self-centered, she dated newlywed Smokey Robinson on the sly in order to get more work at Motown; fiercely devoted mother of five, she gives her children anything they desire; impossible employer, she insists that everyone call her "Miss Ross"; insecure star, she demands complete control over every record, every movie, and every performance, no matter what the result.
Her triumphs and tragedies, her virtues and vices, her lovers and enemies — here's Miss Diana Ross as she's never been seen before.
"Enjoyable . . . [A] marathon bitchfest." — The Village Voice

Call Her Miss Ross is a can't put down till you finish reading type of book.

Diana Ross is one of the most successful singing superstars of our century. (Yes she is more successful than Barbara Streisand in terms of popularity and hits.)

This book depicts a very ambitious Diana Ross. After all, people don't get to where she went, (very rich and famous) by not being a leader and doing a lot of hard work. Which is exactly what she did (at one instance even to the point of collapsing from exhaustion on stage) I don't believe that Diana's primadonna attitude was all her fault. Motown spoiled her to the hilt, but with due cause. Diana Ross helped Motown go where it went--to the top.
While many may not agree with her attitude and manner of the way she rose to the top, Call Her Miss Ross proves that when you come from nothing like she did, you've got to run up the ladder, not just easily pace up it to be successful

Call her Miss Ross really showed a different side of Diana Ross. Unlike Mary Wilson's book; Call her Miss Ross goes more deep into the young woman who really didn't stardom. From what I got from the book, Diana Ross just wanted to be popular and just find all aspect that life that allowed to a young black in Detroit during the 1950's. It also shows how she took on the role a solo artist and ran with it. More touching was reading how she dealt with her mother's cancer and death.
