Could Solange Play Diana Ross? Tracee Ellis Ross Thinks So!
Whitney Houston, Jimi Hendrix, Aaliyah, Nina Simone and many more all have biopics in the works this year. But, there’s one story we would love to add the the list…Diana Ross!
Years ago, a Diana biography was rumored to be in pre-production with Solange Knowles tapped to play the lead, but nothing ever materialized. Now, with the immense popularity of telling the stories of legendary figures in Black culture, it’s only a matter of time before someone shares the Motown mavens life on the big screen.
HipHollywood caught up with Ms. Ross’ daughter, Tracee Ellis Ross, at the premiere of her new show Black-ish and asked her if she thought Solange could play her mother. “Does Solange act?” the Girlfriends star asked, but she continued, “She must, she’s so talented. She can do everything, right?”
