In “Girl What Is You Doing?” news, Barbra Streisand had to “clarify” some comments she made about Michael Jackson’s accusers. While promoting an upcoming concert over in jolly old England, Barbra let out a nugget of crazy WTF about Wade Robson and James Safechuck. If you need a refresh on what earned Barbra the award for The Worst Take, here you go:
“His sexual needs were his sexual needs, coming from whatever childhood he has or whatever DNA he has. You can say ‘molested’, but those children, as you heard say (the grown-up Robson and Safechuck), they were thrilled to be there. They both married and they both have children, so it didn’t kill them.”
That take is like butter gone rancid and covered in shit. I guess basically defending an alleged pedophile is not the coolest thing to do in 2019? Weird. Well, now Barbra is doing the thing which is very cool in 2019: apologizing for the problematic things she said
Page A D is reporting that there is someone out there who has completely lost their damn mind! While performing at a show recently, iconic diva extraordinaire with hair that won’t quit Miss Diana Ross was assaulted by a psychopath! Someone, who must’ve been absent the day in preschool when we all learned to keep our paws to ourselves, poked her as she performed.
Diana Ross has been a musical icon for decades and last night she chose to turn the Grammy’s into The Diana Ross Show where the awards ceremony was just something to do once she left the stage. But first, before we were treated to Diana’s mountain of talent (and hair) she was introduced by her 9-year-old grandson Raif-Henok Kendrick, the son of Diana’s eldest love child Rhonda Ross and grandson of music mogul Berry Gordy. And let’s just say you can tell he could have taken all of the shine had Diana not been backstage watching him like “Make it quick sonny, MomMom got a show to do!”
Since it’s Thanksgiving and most of us here at Dlisted are going to spend the rest of the day making our stomachs and bowels sing “AH’M BEGGING FOR YOU MER-SAAAAAY!” by shoving pounds of meat into our face holes like we’re a power bottom at a pass around Patty orgy, we’re pressing pause on our regularly scheduled programming of foolery today. But I will leave you with the Empress of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, Diana Ross, waving to her subjects while wearing the carcass of a Yeti. Diana also performed and proved that her voice is so powerful that she doesn’t need a stupid mic to fill the land with it, and she is such a talented goddess that she can sing without even moving her lips!
Last night’s American Music Awards were a mixed bag of awards show spectacle that ranged from awkward messiness (see: everyone’s faces while Christina tried) and bold showmanship (see: the dong-shaped catwalk). But the queen of the evening was the legendary Miss Diana Ross, who was honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award. And of course she went above and beyond for the occasion.
Diana Ross is a capital-L legend, and legends like her don’t need to do their own shopping. They should just sit on their nicest velvet chaise and summon their best assistant to retrieve it for them. But Diana Ross does do her own shopping. While looking for a picture of Diana Ross, I found many of her out and about, running her own errands and carrying her own bags I’m still recovering from such a shock to my system). Apparently even wealthy diva legends enjoy a good discount department store bargain hunt.
According to Page Six, Diana Ross was shopping for a gift over the weekend in Los Angeles, which led her to a local Marshalls. At one point during her trip, Diana lost her fanny pack somewhere in the store. A Good Samaritan found it, and rather than keeping it as a souvenir or trying to sell it on eBay as a million-dollar collectable art piece, they turned it in. She was so thankful for her shopping angell (two Ls because they’re double the blessing).
Thank U to the Angell I lost my fanny pack in Marshall’s in LA on Olympic & someone turned it in,What a blessing

Almost everyone comes out a winner in this story: Diana for getting her precious fanny pack back, the kind soul who returned it and Marshalls for the good publicity. The only loser is the marketing executives at Ross who are no doubt supremely pissed off that Diana wasn’t caught shopping for deals in one of their stores. Do You Know Where Diana Ross Goes To Dress for Less? would have been a great campaign.
But why is Diana Ross still using a fanny pack? I shouldn’t be such a hater. It’s probably so she can keep her hands free while she scoops up $29.99 crystal-look vases with one hand and on-trend jewel-toned sweaters with the other. That’s just smart shopping.
