    Remember back in the day when you had to have at least 10 years and psalmist as many successful albums before anyone labeled female artists a "diva'? Heck, now if they have one hit, they're called a diva. What the heck?

    I think its because people nowadays use the word Diva as meaning the person has a bad or entitled attitude versus them being someone with outstanding talent.

    I hate how words that use to have a good meaning are now used as something derogatory. Its so aggravating plus it makes me feel old because I get confused quickly LOL

    I always thought Diva meant a loudly dressed heavy set woman with custome jewelry

    Thanks for setting the meaning straight for me

    I find that it's a term used too loosely considering that some of the artists referred to as "divas" make music that's, well, garbage. Lots of mainstream music nowadays is that. Beyonce is one example. Adele is another. I think their music stinks. Far from divas.

    It couldn't get any looser really...it's applied to sun glasses these days, so it really doesn't even relate to what it used to back in the day (especially musically).
