Quote of the Day
Being the Queen is not all about singing, and being a diva is not all about singing. It has much to do with your service to people. And your social contributions to your community and your civic contributions as well.
So if diva means giving your best, then yes, I guess I am a diva.
It's a shame to call somebody a 'diva' simply because they work harder than everybody else.
I don't mean to be a diva, but some days you wake up and you're Barbara Streisand.
I'm not a diva. I'm a tadpole trying to be a frog.
I prefer Princess. I would love to be known as a diva later on in life when I've had far more experiences.
I just think that the whole diva thing is a misrepresentation of who I am.
I think it takes a strong man to be in a relationship with a strong woman. A lot of people hear the word 'diva' and think of it as a negative. I see it as a positive. I want somebody who knows what they want out of life and isn't afraid to show it.
I have always despised people who thought they were better than others, and I made a promise to myself that I'd never turn into that kind of person. My family also helps to keep me grounded. Whenever I get a 'diva moment,' as they like to call it, they let me know it and say, 'Stop acting like a diva!' They're pretty good at it, too.
I don't do like diva trips and stuff.
Sometimes you have to be a diva. All the artists I admire from Madonna to Whitney to Mariah have all been called divas. If you are strong, if you have vision, if you are an artist, you have to do what you believe in. And if you get called a diva for it, then so what.
I've seen the real extreme diva behaviour and I don't think that's who I am.
My family was musical on both sides. My father's family had a famous flautist and a classical pianist. My mother won a contest to be Shirley Temple's double - she was the diva of the family. At 8, I learned how to play guitar. I used to play songs from the '20s, '30s and '40s in the kitchen for my grandmother.
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.
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.
It takes a long time to get to be a diva. I mean, you gotta work at it.
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.
I'm so tired of this vision of fashion of a diva with a big ego, and you think of big dark glasses to be pretentious and keep far away from the people.
It was darn nigh impossible for women in rock in the '70s. There wasn't a mold if you were a woman and you were in the entertainment in the '70s. You were probably a disco diva or a folk singer, or simply ornamental. Radio would play only one woman per hour.
I must point out - Sarah Jessica Parker is not a diva - she's one of these pop culture characters that everybody likes.
There's no half-singing in the shower, you're either a rock star or an opera diva.
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.
It's not like I'm this glamour diva who hands everything over and I just sit on my throne at home.
An Oklahoma girl like me wouldn't even know how to be a diva. I'm just a person who has a cool job. I love to be at home. I rarely go to clubs... and I always wear underwear! I just know I'd fall down, and that's not for everyone to see.
I've got four dogs, and I just don't do dog doo. I'm a diva when it comes to that.
A diva is someone who is a perfectionist, who does her best in her craft.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
