( ENSPIRE ENTERTAINMENT ) Tracee Ellis Ross recreates her mom Diana Ross’ iconic music video from 1981
Tracee Ellis Ross has finally revealed that secret project she’s been working on: a recreation of her mother’s fabulous “Work that Body” video!
The Black-ish star explained why she felt the need to pay homage to the 1981 cult-classic video when she said that her mother had already had her three oldest children when she made the video.
“I was watching and thinking: why does watching this woman dancing around in barely any clothes with her tush to the camera make me feel joyful and empowered when the same kind of image in most music videos today doesn’t give me that feeling?” Ross wrote on her website, and also posted to Instagram.
Here is a clip from my #secretproject. To see the full video at TraceeEllisRoss.com or click the link in my bio! I decided to recreate my #Mom’s Work That Body video from 1981 as a fun experiment and as a tribute to my glorious mother ….this particular video had an impact on me and I wanted to explore why?
