The woman who helped make Motown music look and act as well as it sounded has died. Her name was Maxine Powell — and she was head of what was known as the Motown Finishing School. It was her job to make sure the artists on the label behaved like ladies and gentlemen both on the stage and off. She was 98 and died of natural causes yesterday. Motown founder Berry Gordy noted that all the Motown stars — no matter how famous — had to register for her courses in how to eat, dress and carry themselves. Gordy says she often told the singers they shouldn't confuse her for their parents because: "They're stuck with you. I'm not."
