Tracee Ellis Ross says she once playfully scolded her mother Diana Ross for keeping an iconic black blouse – that the legendary singer wore in 1981 alongside Michael Jackson – in her garage.

The daughter of the musical icon, 48, opened up about the exchange while speaking Tuesday with Naomi Campbell’s YouTube show No Filter with Naomi.

‘I was out in the garage at one point and I came back in the house with this shirt and I was like “MOM! What is! Why is this not in a case? This could pay for college!”’ the Los Angeles native said.

The Black-ish star revived the look, wearing the garment onstage in 2017 when she hosted the American Music Awards.

She said at the show, ‘OK, does this look familiar to anybody? If it doesn’t, go to my Instagram to refresh your memory: Diana Ross and Michael Jackson, twinsie outfits from one of my mother’s specials.’

The Golden Globe-winning actress told the crowd, ‘This was the actual original shirt which I found in the garage, and you ask what was I doing in the garage? I was “shopping” slash “stealing!”‘

In the subsequent post she post on social media, Ross wrote, ‘TWINNING ~ my mama @dianaross and #michaeljackson in 1981. This is mom’s actual shirt i just wore at the @AMAs! i found it in her garage.’

‘The Diana Ross that the world knows – this sort of global, international icon who paved the way and sort of changed what glamour looked like and who Black women were in the world particularly in that capacity,’ she told Campbell, 50. ‘Her Diana Ross-ness doesn’t hold a candle to her mom-ness.

‘I’m so close with my mom and my family. She made a space in the world before I got here and that has been a part of how I’ve been able to walk through the world.’
