Was Michael Jackson's Dirty Diana about Diana Ross?



Was Michael Jackson's Dirty Diana about Diana Ross?
 


“Dirty Diana” was definitely not about Diana Ross. At one point they did have a falling out because he had turned down her request to walk her down the aisle when she got married but they simply just grew apart.


Michael Jackson picked the name Diana for his song because he liked the way it sounded. He wanted a name that started with a D. Try sounding out other names in place of it and you'll see what I mean. He did the same kind of technique in “Smooth Criminal” when he used the name “Annie”. Sounds were one of the factors that were most important to Michael Jackson during his career.


The song Dirty Diana was about “groupies” that would sleep with members of famous or not so famous bands to feel like they were cool. A great movie about this exact phenomena was released in the year 2000. It was called Almost Famous. Kate Hudson played the lead. Its definitely worth seeing if you want to get a great understanding about Michael Jacksons song.


Michael wrote that song about Groupies. Listen too the lyrics. He said it in an interview once too. When performing at Wembley he was going too take out ‘Dirty Diana' from the performance became Princess Diana was attending but she said no cause she liked the song. So its not on Princess Diana also .
