Diana Ross misses movie

(femalefirst.co.uk) - Diana Ross hasn't seen 'Dreamgirls' yet - the film based on her life.

The musical movie, which stars BeyoncГ© Knowles, tells the story of a fictional three-piece Motown girl band and their rise to fame, similar to the career of Ross' group The Supremes.

Despite being the inspiration for the movie - which won a Golden Globe on Monday (15.01.07) for Best Film Musical or Comedy - Ross claims she has been too busy to watch it but is planning on viewing it soon.

She quipped to US talk show host David Letterman: "Yes, I've heard a lot about it. I'm going to see it with my lawyers. I would like to be able to see it."

The 62-year-old diva, who confessed she hadn't seen the original stage version either, is pleased that she's the creative force for the film.

She added: "I like to inspire the talent that it is out there today."

In the movie, BeyoncГ©'s character, Deena Jones, bears a striking resemblance to Ross in her early career.

Ross also revealed she is going to appear as a mentor on the next series of US TV talent show 'American Idol' and is set to embark on a world tour in March to promote her new album 'I Love You'.
