   schema:description "Diana Ross was raised in the Detroit projects and, through hard work and determination, scaled the heights of superstardom, first as lead singer of the Supremes and then as a solo artist. To this day she remains the grand diva against which all others in show business are measured. This book reveals stunning new details about her combative relationship with the other Supremes, her passionate romance with Berry Gordy, president of Motown, which produced her very own 'Love Child', her surprising two marriages and divorces, her recent startling arrest for drunk driving and her inspiring, triumphant recovery. Drawing on hundreds of interviews over the course of decades with the star's parents, her siblings, co-stars in the Supremes, and with Diana herself, Taraborrelli paints an unforgettable picture of an extraordinary and often controversial star. Diana has distinguished herself as a Civil Rights trailblazer, a temperamental celebrity, a consummate entertainer, and a loving mother. There is only one Miss Ross. And this is her story."@en ;
