Well it seems as if Spike Lee isn’t the ONLY famous black celebrity who is not fond of Tyler Perry, another one has come out openly and this one is the LEGENDARY Diana Ross.
Now according to inside sources at the ENQUIRER she considers Perry’s “Madea” character which has been his cash cow for lack of better words “lowbrow”
The 68-year-old Legendary Motown icon and DIVA has flatly as well as openly refused repeated requests to co-star with the playwright and television show creatoran
“Diana feels Tyler’s movies, TV shows and especially his main character ‘Madea’ have no substance,” this is what insider told The ENQUIRER. The acclaimed actor/director/ producer has been trying to work with his idol Diana for years, “but she refuses to even discuss the prospect with him,”
Now Tyler is pretty upset by Diana’s slap in the face and snub and told a reporter: “She’s the only person that I have dreamed of working with that will not return my phone calls.” Tyler found out that the former lead singer of The Supremes thinks his plays, movies and TV shows exploit African-American stereotypes, said the source.
“Diana is all about her entertainment legacy,” the insider at the ENQUIRER explained. “The last thing she wants is to co-star in a cheesy comedy starring a black man in a fat suit playing a half-cocked, angry old woman waving a gun.
Could this just be old cranky black woman syndrome or does she have a legit point here?
