We love us some Patti LaBelle. Here's what she had to say about the state of the diva today:
"That word is used so loosely that I don't even consider myself a diva," LaBelle said in an interview with PrideSource. "I always considered myself a woman who sings her heart out and who gives 120 percent. 'Diva' is a word that I wouldn't wanna call myself because it's so loosely used. It's not cute anymore."
And the word now has a negative ring to it "because all these little heifers who can't sing are called divas!"
We're not naming any names, but all of us can guess who she might have had in mind.
