Ms. Ross (aka The Boss) is 70 years old today. This fashion, music and hair icon is a Detroit native and hence, an amazing human being. This lady is brimming with grace, beauty, confidence and of course, fabulous hair. She is my hair role model. Look at her entrance on this old episode of The View:
That hair fluffing, though? Once my afro grows out, I will need about 10 seconds for my hair fluff upon entry to every room. Watch. Anyway, Ms. Ross is phenomenal and has provided the soundtrack for many dance routines in front of the mirror as a child and as an adult. In fact, a cousin, a neighbor and I put on some old gowns we found and made a ridiculous routine to “Muscles.” Shout out to the Boss for having all that half-naked eye candy in her video! “Upside Down” and “I’m Coming Out” are favorites and there are so many classics from her days with the Supremes. Not to mention she is an Oscar nominated actress, she starred in the film version of The Wiz and she gave us the wardrobe masterpiece that is Mahogany.
Salute to a legend.
