Diana Ross and Prince?

Granted, I don't know a lot about her, but she seemed to show up on various award shows that I've been watching on YouTube. Grammy's 1986 and 1988 (?) as a hostess . And she was a the main act on the opening ceremony for the World Cup in 1994. The biggest event in the world.

But I have never seen or heard a quote from her, where she said anything about Prince. Honestly, she seems like a total Industry Pop Star and too "normal" for Prince.

Did they ever meet or record anything?

Her daughter talks about her mom and her meeting him backstage.

Parts of her account don´t make much sense to me though because I only remember Prince wearing those pants she mentions on MTV but not at a regular concert. Maybe I misunderstood her? Or maybe she´s had a Mandela effect?

Apparently she met him for the first time when she was dating Gene Simmons after the Dirty Mind Ritz Show and Prince was supershy meeting her.

Prince spent time around the Jacksons at one point, so it's likely they crossed paths, or almost crossed paths then. I think Diana was still in tight with MJ around that time. She was around a lot because of MJ and connections to Motown, and The Supremes, making her baby boomer royalty.

Diana Ross also had singles out every year of that big Prince 80's era.

He wasn't in that Quincy Jones or Motown camp though, and that would have been the same period he started getting competitive with MJ.
