Diva is a female version of a hustler (says Beyoncé), but no matter how you look at it, diva isn't something you want to be labeled. At least not for us regular peasant folks.

As Christina Aguilera and Rihanna both rolled out new albums this fall (Lotus and Unapologetic respectively), we're once again reminded of the importance of being a female hustler in the music business and why diva-esque behaviour is tantamount to their careers. Really, how does one warble onstage knowing that there are, god forbid, red carnations waiting in the dressing room? Now flip through our gallery to discover what other demands should be met to keep music royalty comfortable in their thrones…

Some of the demands, ok, out there but the can afford to pay for them and people take money for them, so why is that any of my business. It's not illegal to have rose petals placed in a toilet is it? Sounds like a nice idea actually.  
As for bullet proof glass, entire floors of hotels, and private beaches, fans cause that one. Leave these people alone!!! These super stars receive real threats to themselves and their children constantly. Why is wanting to take a vacation in peace an unreasonable demand? It's a shame they have to go to such extremes. 

As for Biance having her baby, the whole floor of the hospital being on lockdown and parents not being able to see their newborns,,,,that would be the fault of the hospital for accepting funds for something that they should not be doing. But that's all part of the evil US healthcare system. We here in Canada wouldn't have to tolerate such crap.

I love this stuff! LOL. Let the shallowness, insecurities and gluttony be known.  Renting the entire floor of a hospital?  That's the best.  I laugh until I cry.

Talk about "frozen" the lady must have had tonnes of Botox holding up that face.  Ever see her without makeup? God awful, doesn't even look like the same person; no wonder she has antics-she doesn't want people looking in on her so close.

This is another one that I never used to hate on; but she has really changed in the last few years. Can't see how the child could warrant so much security; perhaps her parents must have ****ed off enuff people to want her hidden.  As far as keeping other parents from their newborns in the hospital-that makes you a total ****! Not a diva, her music has also gone along the wayside-too bad really cause she does have talent, pre-Jay-Z days I mean.

Ah, she is a nobody anyway.  I guess when you only have looks going for you; you wouldn't want to see anyone giving you the evil-eye.  She is so marketed and manufactured that almost everything about her is so fake. No wonder she is divorced 3 times, no man could put up with buying her a new toilet seat covering if she lost one down the toilet...toilet forbid!

Why do Canadians chastise our most talented Personalities?  I am proud that the whole World loves Shania, Not to mention that she has the most perfect face in the world.  Her voice is magical and direly missed!  Her personality is soooo Canadian! I am proud of every Canadian that has the strength of character to step up onto a stage and Put it out there!  Shania You Rock!

These "divas" make these demands because we as a society have allowed them to get away with it.  Goodness, they're nothing more than trained monkeys on stage - yet look at the way people fawn over them!

 

As far as I'm concerned, these "superstars" make far too much money.  My gosh, just because one CAN spend money does not mean one SHOULD.

 

You know, it seems to me that the money spent on such frivolous demands would be better spent looking after those who need the basics - shelter, food, clothing - not overseas but right HERE.    How about these talented folks with obviously too much cash on their hands be required to donate 30-40% of their income to those who actually need it?

 

Bring these folks down a notch or two and let them see that really, they're no better than the rest of us - and should behave accordingly.

 

Sheesh.
