Uhm... Maybe the promoters didn't have her money? Afterall, this is Atlanta (Y'all who know, know what I'm talking about)

If that is the circumstance, then my question for the room/thread; What should a performer do?

This is why I like Miss Ross (who was also in Atlanta and her show got RAVE reviews), because she requires that half her fee be paid upfront weeks or months before the concert date and then the remainder during the halftime of her show. While the audience is enjoying the show and singing "Ease On Down The Road", Ross is easin' on back to rafters to collect the rest of her money. If there is no money then she just eases herself on out the door of the venue.

Although...

I've been doing a little reading on Miss Baker and apparently, she has canceled shows before in a willy-nilly fashion. Therefore, it seems that she is unreliable. But to cancel a show at the very last minute on Mother's Day weekend and in Atlanta? I'd say stick a fork in her. She's done. That was a faux pas beyond a faux pas'. Unless her daddy, momma, and/or child died... nuh-uh... you don't do that. Forget the excitement over the concert but people got dressed, traveled, planned dinner, etc to only be told at the very last minute that there is no show? A ticket refund isn't enough recompensation. She's gonna pay for this.

Miss Baker suffers from crippling stage fright before every performance. It might take her 2 or 3 hours to get mentally prepared to go on stage, but if she can't get herself together, she'll cancel at the last minute. She's done this before. Sometimes she'll take her frustrations out on crew, colleagues, and even the audience. She might be a vocal talent, but she just wasn't built to be a performer.

Then don't tour. There are MANY performers who suffer stage fright (ie Barbara Streisand is one of many) but they are professional and know how to work through that and go on and DO THEIR JOB! I "get" the creative process and whatnot, but this is their job. If they can't do it, then quit and don't do it. To me, it's very disrespectful to audiences to get into some type of funk where an entertainer (their job) cannot go on. What's the idiom? "The show MUST go on"! Can there be exceptions? Yes. One that comes to my mind is when Bob Hope canceled a show at the last minute once he learned of Bing Crosby's death. He said something to the effect of "I can't be funny tonight". Anyway, those exceptions should be far in between.

To build a reputation of unreliability when there are so many people depending upon one to come through is just inexcusable.

As for Anita, I shall only add to my previous comment on R16 is that she re-tired once before and maybe she should have trusted her opinion. Or asked mine. She's so sloppy and out of shape they're going to need to just pour her into a barrel and wheel it to the corner of the pizza joint or wherever she's "appearing."

This just makes the situation worse. Anita Baker is a "girls night out" type of performer/performance. Similar to Marvin Gaye where the girls all get together for food, gossip, drinks, and fun. Baker appeals to the African-American woman of a certain age, whose body show a bit of a pouch/belly and they're now a size 14 rather than the cute and pert size 3 they were when younger. These women have raised their children, and some are now becoming grandmothers. They can relate to Baker because she looks like them and is around the same age. So, for a few hours (just a few hours) they can all spend a few hours together listening, singing, and enjoying beautiful songs that bring back many memories of their younger years before having to return to the rut of their realities. Just a few hours...

Anita robbed them of those relaxing moments

Babyface were quite pissed and rightfully so. A big part of the tickets sales were due to his name even though he is the opening act. Babyface is a bigger star than Anita Baker and I bigger household name among the general public. He is just not a performer and Greta deal of the songs he would perform would be those written for other artists. But I know in many cities outside the east coast and LA she was using him to sell those tickets.

by Anonymousreply 100May 14, 2024 12:01 PM

Well, that's just it, R100. Ego(s) come into play. I never understood why some of these performers have opening (or whatever else you want to call them) acts in the first place. Maybe production costs have become so expensive that many entertainers cannot draw in enough ticket sales to cover costs alone and need another "headliner" to help with boosting those ticket sales. I was surprised that Luther Vandross had "opening" acts towards the end of his career. I had the opportunity to see him several times as a solo act and it was always a fantastic show but maybe his show alone was not enough of a draw that would make the required coins to cover costs and make a profit. From my readings, he was HORRIFIC towards the many other acts that appeared with him.

In this instance, Babyface's hands are not clean either. He threw in his digs towards Baker on a number of occasions. She referred to him as the opening act and he would say things like half the audience would leave the venue after he performed.

R101 my point exactly. Half the audiences were leaving after his set 😆. I don’t know why they didn’t just do a co-headlining tour. Often times when a big opening act comes about is because the original artist was struggling to sell tickets at the size of venues they wanted in the original tour and the big star opening act was added later on. But so much of the original tour had already been planned. It’s not just egos. It’s the logistics of it all.

It's my guess that she is still assessing social media to determine where this is falling publicly. Also, who knows who is suing whom? Her next concert is scheduled for June 30 in Chicago, and then on July 2 in Toronto which leads me back to the following posting;

DIANE probably has some DUI tickets to pay. And besides, she doesn't really "perform." She whispercoos and talk-sings through a whole bunch of songs and hits a note every once in a while all while balancing that heinous Chia Pet ass lookin' wig on her head. Whoop-de-do.

If someone wants to pay a few hundred bucks to listen to that bitch talk, sing a note or two every once in a while and show photos of that frog eyed daughter of hers, go right ahead. Miss me with that bullshit.

Seriously Mary. Doesn't she just lip synch the entire show? I saw a number she did in Vegas and it was clearly pre recorded.

You sissy heathens, leave me the fuck alone! I mind MAH bid'ness and don't bother nobody! Don't blame me that some broke ass aunties in Atlanta got upset because I caught the gout and canceled my concert at the last minute. My health and well-being come first!

They should feel privileged that I'm still performing for them. Anyway, I'll pray for y'all and hope you have a little more compassion when you reach my age.

Blessings,

To book Diana Ross is in the starting range of $300,000-$499,000.

Maybe because she bought a place in Miami for $15.5M only 2 years ago only to place it on the market for $17.9M? If you ask me if that was an investment property and if she gets her price it would be a very nice return for a 2-year investment. Shrewd! Very shrewd!!!

R141 I wouldn’t say Karen Carpenter had a tiny voice.

Karen was a fantastic singer and had a strong voice. Diana Ross has a distinctive and nice voice, but as you say tiny.

From Randy Schmidt’s biography of Carpenter: “Karen was a mic singer,” recalls Allyn Ferguson, who served as a musical supervisor on the series. He remembers her to be quite shy and says she sang very close to the microphone with a “tiny” voice. “She would have never been OK on a musical stage,” he says. “You would not be able to hear her at all if you were thirty or forty feet away because she didn’t project at all. She understood how to sing on a microphone, and that brought a sort of intimacy to everything she did.”

I don’t think Diana Ross has money issues but I think she’s accustomed to a lifestyle that is very expensive to maintain so she continues to tour. A lot of older/classic artists do this. Also Ross didn’t get a big chunk of money until nearly 20 years into her career.

by Anonymousreply 152May 16, 2024 7:35 PM

Didn't Diane get a big chunk of Arnie Naess' loot? I think she tours to prove she's still a star. Some people just live for the applause and the limelight. If you worked hard for it, why not?

It's her money. She works hard for it. Therefore, she should spend it as she sees fit. According to reports her spending was a reason for her marriage dissolution with Arne Naess. Ross doesn't like the presidential suite for her overnight stays. She likes fully staffed castles and chateaus!

I tell ya... you queens who can't stand Diana Ross. You're the ones who are still moaning and groaning that she killed Florence Ballard, Mary and fucked her way to the top--a now 80-year old woman that's pretty much been on top for over 50 years. Ross must have some miracle pussy! Yet, you're in love with that fat heifer that rolls all over a stage floor that has been known on more than one occasion to slap people (including children), throw bottles at people, etc

Ross just sings her songs, collects her money, and spends it wherever she see fit. She lives her life.

The sad thing is that for most of the "great hoo-hoo talents" mentioned here they just have a smell of too many perfumes, too little dry cleaning, and Preparation H around them. Re was no rose blossom - fuck no - but you saw how she re-coiled from Patti Poo at the White House that time. Re wasn't being a bitch. She just couldn't take the stank.

Shit. How did I lose a week? WHERE did I lose a fucking week?

Luckily, I took the month off from my heavy schedule of entertaining and inspiring. So gratifying to be in such dee-mand in my Bronze Age.
