AN ODE TO DIANA
It's the Boss' birthday!!! And to celebrate, Tracee Ellis Ross paid homage to Diana by recreating the 1981 "Work That Body" video. She was super-imposed into the video where she danced alongside her beautiful mom, looking stunning in classic one-piece bathing suits. For Tracee, since a child, she has always been drawn to this video - it's one of her favorites. She raises a thought-provoking analysis about the sexual nature of this video. She talks about how although Diana is dancing around in her bathing suit, there is something not so provocative about the dance. It's less about being salacious and more about feeling empowered with self and empowering other women. Read more of this ode to Diana for her birthday on Tracee's blog.
I always love Tracee's spirit. She has an awesome since of humor and always seems to have a positive perspective about things. This video made me smile. It's one more of those things you never knew you were missing in your life.
