Diana Ross signs up with MAC, finally

MAC Global President, John Demsey, states, "Not only is [Diana Ross] a global style icon but also a timeless and exquisite beauty. As a multi-talented performer who expresses her individuality through fashion and make-up, she's all that M.A.C admires."

I'd dispute that Diana Ross is "a timeless and exquisite beauty." Actually, she's become pathetic. She reached the heights of her career in 60s with the Supremes and in the 70s and 80s with her solo career. More recently, her career has been plagued by a lot of setbacks and missteps: the end of her marriage, a DUI conviction last year, and the failed "Return to Love" Supremes reunion - if you could call it a "reunion," as neither Mary Wilson nor Cindy Birdsong, the two surviving Supremes (Florence Ballard died broke years ago) with whom Diana Ross had her biggest 60s hits, agreed to participate.

As far as being "all that M.A.C admires," this is consistent with M.A.C's habit of engaging female impersonators like Liza Minnelli and drag queen RuPaul - although RuPaul is more genuine than either Diana Ross or Liza Minnelli.
