Thoughts?
Patti LaBelle Slams Today’s Talent: ‘All these little heifers who can’t sing are called divas’

January 23, 2014     

PATTI_LABELLE

Patti LaBelle doesn’t see it for todays generation of singers.

In an interview with PrideSource, Patti offers her thoughts on the word ‘diva’ and how she no longer wants to be associated with it due to the lack of talent in today’s pool of talent.

When asked what it meant to be a ‘diva’.
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.

On if there’s 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.

On when ‘diva’ used to be a respectable term
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.

Well dang, Patti! Tell us how you really feel….

Check out the rest of her interview here.

she's right..

i don't really know when it all started.  (Notice she didn't mention Diana Ross)..

Possibly with Madonna (Diana)?  When it turned into more "being controversial"  or looks..

We all know sex sells.   Madonna took it to a different level, and "talent agencies/record companies" took off with it.

It went from: "i can sing"

to "I can try to sing while 'looking cute' (Diana Ross)

to "I can strip while trying to sing"

to "I can play with myself while  trying to sing"

to "I can try to  sing half naked"

to "I can put myself in sexual positions while trying to sing"

to "I can twerk"

to just.. plain.. old.. sh*&*t
