Vh1 misunderstands the meaning of a diva

jrvbl0

First and foremost, a diva is not “a female version of a hustler,” as Beyonce would like you to believe. It’s actually quite the contrary. It means an woman of outstanding talents and a knack for perseverance. It’s about wisdom, strength, nerve and talent. Sadly to say, Vh1 is about to relaunch Divas Live for 2009 and the line-up has no divas at all. The stars are Jordin Sparks, Adele, Kelly Clarkson, Leona Lewis and Miley Cyrus (a diva? really!?). None of which have the age or wisdom to be divas just yet. They all have the potential, don’t get me wrong. They’re just not what a diva is. Bring me Whitney, Mariah, Janet, Madonna, Diana, Donna, Chaka, Pat or Cher. Hell, even Christina, Beyonce or Britney would do.

    How would they get the ratings they desire without tossing Miley, Jordin, or Leona in the mix? I like Adele and Kelly but they are in no way “Divas”. The line-up should’ve been Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Girls Aloud, Amy Winehouse, and for the sake of Disney, Taylor Swift (someone who’s actually talented with a great voice and quirky writing skills).

    There are four more names to be announced.
