Motown superstar Diana Ross took to Twitter after her Saturday appearance at Jazz Fest in New Orleans to express some dissatisfaction with her visit to the Crescent City

UPDATE: TSA to further investigate Diana Ross treatment at New Orleans Airport

Ms. Ross, the headline act on the Gentilly Stage, had no complaints about the crowd and nothing but praise for the festival itself.
"I love New Orleans it was an incredible night at the jazz fest," she tweeted.

But, she apparently did not enjoy her experience at Louis Armstrong International Airport.

Her latest Tweet seemed to indicate she's recovered from the incident.

 The TSA is investigating, but its initial video review indicates all protocols were followed. Spokesman Mark Howell said the agency is committed to treating all travelers with respect and courtesy. 

The 75-year-old diva donned nine different outfits for her New Orleans Jazz Fest debut and concluded her performance by dancing with the crowd.
