Meghan Markle interviewed Mariah Carey for her podcast Archetypes, and the conversation was lighthearted until Mariah casually remarked “You give us diva moments sometimes, Meghan.” Meghan looked horrified and asked “How can you say that?” – NOT the reaction Mariah was looking for. Meghan continued “What kind of diva moments do I give you?” Mariah hastened to explain that it was a COMPLIMENT – due to Meghan’s VISUAL appeal- her beauty, gorgeous ensembles, and glamorous life. “You have everything going for you!” Mariah observed. Meghan thought it over and decided that Mariah meant well, but there are decidedly different ways of interpreting the word diva. The dictionary defines the word diva as a “difficult, temperamental, and demanding person.” For some reason, Mariah connects the word to glamour and success. After this, will she still be flattered when people call HER a diva?
