That’s the rumor coming down the turnpike, insiders swearing that for Miss Ross‘s next album, the very white Diana Krall will produce a back-and-forth number featuring the Motown superstar and the Oscar winning Jewess. And gays of a certain age are wetting their pink panties!
One can only hope this will be a relatively feisty matchup, like “No More Tears (Enough Is Enough)”–Barbra’s ’70s duet with Donna Summer–as opposed to a drippy duo like Diana’s “Endless Love” with creepy Lionel Richie. (God, how gay am I?)
Will Diana’s honey-laden vocals mix well with the Babs bombast? Do they both still have the vocal power to make this a Thrilla in Manila as opposed to an old-lady version of a Britney/Justin danceoff?
More importantly, which of the two will be the bigger needy, demanding diva? Will this be the scariest showdown since Alien vs. Predator–or more accurately since Streisand and Donna Summer?
My money’s on my girl Diana. But don’t tell that the other gorgon.
