Patti LaBelle: ‘All These Heifers Who Can’t Sing Are Called Divas!’

Patti LaBelle is like that auntie who gives it to you straight, no chaser, and there’s really nothing you can say back.

Just recently, the 69-year-old legend sat down with PrideSource for an interview where she shunned being labeled anything remotely close to “Diva.”  Back in the day, the title was reserved for female singers with voices that couldn’t be matched by any other, but since Beyoncé told us that “a diva is a female version of a hustler,” every chick with a mic and a hit song is calling herself a diva.
And that ain’t alright with Patti.

She told the site:

That word is used so loosely that I don’t even consider myself a diva. 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.

Is there a negative connotation to it now?
Yeah, because all these little heifers who can’t sing are called divas! It doesn’t mean anything to me and probably to some of the other ladies who have been doing it for as long as I have: Gladys Knight, Aretha Franklin, Dionne Warwick. You know, I’m speaking for me – I don’t know if they like to be called divas – but I know I wouldn’t call them divas, because it’s not in good company.

But it used to be a respectable term at some point.
Well, for opera singers, and for ladies who earned it, but that was way, way back when. Now you can look up to them, but you might not see what you wanna see. A hot mess! People who are doing it and doing it with about 40 people on stage with them to hide their pitifulness – that’s not a word, but you know what I mean.

If that ain’t some classy shade that she’s serving like it’s some good mac & cheese.

And as you already know, Patti don’t give one single f***!

^^^Got 2B Real. Yes I wish Patti LaHelle would continue the series. I've seen other spoofs but they weren't as well done IMO.

How bad is it when I hear 12 year olds start to use the term to refer to themselves or one another?
