Quote of the Day
But a true diva has dismissed that drama. A true diva's heart is open, and she's ready to play by her own rules - rules that are gentle and kind.
So if diva means giving your best, then yes, I guess I am a diva.
It's not like I'm this glamour diva who hands everything over and I just sit on my throne at home.
I've learned to try to sustain myself by holding on to the integrity of who I am. I'm not talking big diva. I'm quiet. I'm shy. And I became stronger when I stopped trying to be the person they wanted me to be.
I don't mean to be a diva, but some days you wake up and you're Barbara Streisand.
I don't do like diva trips and stuff.

A diva is someone who is a perfectionist, who does her best in her craft.
I think the era of the diva actress is coming to an end.
The word diva to me means doing something supernatural with something natural.
I just think that the whole diva thing is a misrepresentation of who I am.
By the time I was five, I was a little diva.
If a hundred people want autographs, sometimes you have to say no because you've got to get up for a 4 A.M. flight or something. In that sense, it really pisses me off when people think you've become a diva. It's not becoming a diva, it's because of the situation, I think.
A diva is someone who pretends to know who she is and looks fabulous doing it.
That term's definitely got a negative aura to it, because people think a diva is somebody with an attitude who demands things all the time. Of course there is that type of diva, but my idea of a diva has always been a singer - whether male or female - who gets on that stage and captivates you with their presence and their voice.
The diva tag just won't go away. I think that's because people want me to be like that. It makes it more interesting if I have thrown a phone at somebody or a water bottle. Sadly that's just not me.
I think maybe because of the kind of music I sing, people want to believe you're a diva. They can't believe after eight years, and eight albums, you're still relatively sane. I feel like they almost want me to throw something at somebody.
I go home and don't get treated any differently. People have known me all my life and are interested and very supportive but because they have known me forever I don't get any diva treatment. My mum still tells me off if I haven't loaded the dishwasher for her.
If my mum thinks I'm acting like a diva she'll soon tell me off... She'll cut me down to size!
I have the ability to sing with emotion and feeling, but if you say I sound like Billie Holiday, that's cool. Let's look at who Billie was: she was this person, this singer, this beautiful diva who could move the audience with the slightest gesture of her hand.
I'm not a diva. I'm a tadpole trying to be a frog.
I've seen the real extreme diva behaviour and I don't think that's who I am.
Long before 'American Idol', people used to call me a diva. And I be like, 'Hold on, are you calling me something else on the sly? You gonna call me a diva, call me a good diva.'
Actually, I take it as a compliment. Diva is a derivative of divine. That's quite a title to carry around.
I'm such a diva on set.
I'm quite repulsed by the diva type.
I prefer Princess. I would love to be known as a diva later on in life when I've had far more experiences.
I think the diva is kind of a cliche. My definition of a diva is somebody whose talent does not match what they're trying to play, so all this temperament comes out.
I'm no diva but I can be annoying in a recording studio. Of course I try to be a diva in terms of confidence of performance and owning a song but I've never behaved like one in terms of the negative connotations of the word.
I didn't think there was life after modelling, believe me. It's a hit to the ego when you are not the diva on the set any more. But I think what keeps me going are challenges. I love when people tell me I can't do something.
