Motown Founder Looks Berry, Berry Good - for 79!

1/5/2009 5:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

After Billy Dee Williams played him in "The Jacksons: An American Dream," Berry Gordy says his buds cracked him for not being as attractive as the Colt 45 slinger -- but for 79, the founder of Motown Records still looks pretty damn good.

ALWAYS CARRIED RESPECT FOR THIS MAN...THE ONLY TIME I DIDNT RESPECT HIM WAS WHEN HE MADE DIANA ROSS TAKE THE BRUNT OF THE SUPREMES PROBLEMS..........HE HAS NEVER STATED THAT HE WAS THE ONE THAT WANTED FLORENCE BALLARD FIRED FROM THE GROUP, AND SO MISS ROSS HAD TO TAKE THE BLAME FOR HIS ACTIONS.

This guy left Detroit and turned his back on the City that made him.He had this rat infested 14 story building across from Comerica Park.It remained vacant and decaying since 1980 till a week before super bowl 40.The love for Gordy from Detroit people was lost in his generation.My generation had to look at his disgusting building our whole lives......BOY The Wiz was a hit LOL

I'm not 100% sure, but I think his son is Rockwell, the singer who had the one-hit wonder of 1984, "Somebody' Watching Me", with additional vocals by Michael Jackson. Maybe someone can verify that.

He and Diana Ross had a child together.

This was one of America's most celebrated Black entrepreneurs, and he done went and sold Motown in 1988!
Oh, well. Thanks for the memories.

At least his stable of performers were gussied up and taught how to speak and behave properly. Just look at the performers we've got these days. Yuck!

He should, old crone has ripped of all his artists for years. The majority of them are dead now. What a douchebag!
