She will survive

Though Sunday night's Divas 2000: A Tribute To Diana Ross concert at the Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York was indeed a tribute to the supremest of the Supremes, for Diana Ross herself it was nothin' but a house party. The show featured some of the most talented and well-known divas in the world: Mariah Carey, Donna Summer, Destiny's Child, Faith Hill, Ru Paul and, of course, Diana Ross. Through it all, however, Ross was able to give the proceedings an intimate, down-home feel.
Mariah Carey, who was in fine voice (and fine form) despite a very recent bout with food poisoning, opened the evening with a version of Ross' solo hit "Love Hangover," which morphed into Carey's own "Heartbreaker" and included bits of disco classics "Doctor Love" and "Love To Love You, Baby." In a perilously short silver dress, Carey looked like she could give Tina Turner a run for her money in the "she's got legs and she knows how to use 'em" department. And she's got a future in disco, too, should she ever feel like taking a break from the hip-hop beats. Carey's got both the pipes and the attitude to pull off dance music staples.
Mariah Carey, who came across more as a sweet and sexy homegirl than a fierce ruling diva, reminisced about seeing Ross at her now-legendary 1983 Central Park concert. Carey was just a girl then and recalled how Ross valiantly tried to keep the show rolling despite a downpour of Noah's Ark proportions. The image of Ross trying to defy Mother Nature herself stuck with Carey: The diva would not be dismissed.
Finally, in the ultimate diva duet, Ross was joined by Carey for "Baby Love" and "Stop! In The Name Of Love," trademark hand gestures intact. For this vocal summit, they both wore versions of the perilously short dress in which Carey opened the evening - and they both looked smashing.
The entire "diva-licious" crew, as Carey put it, returned for the grand finale: Ross' signature tune, "Ain't No Mountain High Enough."

Abraham / black panties (47,702) by Edward from USA

Abraham, my post was intended for those who keep telling people what to post or not to, and you are one of them, so I didn't have to be specific. I want you to know that I respect the fact that you love wearing your panties, but assuming that the rest of us male fans like wearing them too is a little bit too much. I'm a fan of Mariah's. I'm not int... read more
