Diana Ross to mentor on ''American Idol'' 1/17/2007
NEW YORK (AP) — Diana Ross says she''s a busy woman these days. So busy, in fact, that she hasn''t had time to see the hit film Dreamgirls, which is loosely based on her life as a Motown starlet.
The 62-year-old singer told CBS Late Show host David Letterman on Tuesday that she is going to be a mentor on Fox''s American Idol and is planning a world tour in March to promote her new album, I Love You.

Ross said she didn''t see the musical version of Dreamgirls, either.

When Letterman asked her whether she was curious about the film, Ross joked: "Yes, I''ve heard a lot about it. I''m going to see it with my lawyers."

The film, which won a Golden Globe on Monday for best musical or comedy, tells the story of a Motown trio similar to the Supremes and their rise to fame. Eddie Murphy also won for best supporting actor, and newcomer Jennifer Hudson, a former American Idol contestant, won for best supporting actress.

Ross went on to say that she''s heard there is a lot of her image and likeness in the movie. Beyonce Knowles'' character, Deena Jones, looks like Ross during her early solo days.

"What I would like to do is to be able to see it," Ross said. "I like to inspire the talent that it is out there today."
