Generally no longer correlated with the original definition of the successful/adored/talented/beautiful/stylish female icon.

Nowadays it has come to define the materialistic and demanding cuntbag. Most often, this modern low-to-middle-class household 'diva' is not relevant on so much as a local level; let alone the celebrity she tends to perceive herself as (even though she has more myspace friends and photo comments than all of *~da haterz~*.

The self-proclaimed suburb breed of diva is also convinced that she is the blueprint of the ideal woman, while she may appear completely beat to the average onlooker. She also has no education or career credentials to back up her overabundance of confidence. It doesn't matter; you are but another hater sippin' on that bottle of haterade.

Although there is very little significant activity in the lives of this observed diva species, recreation includes:
-updating photos on and checking comments for MySpace page
-raiding the kiosks at the mall which sell knock-off designer handbags
-shoes
-going to clubs, where aging desperates fund their tabs while they dance to the hottest mainstream rap songs and sweat their spray-on tan off
-verbally bashing less 'fabulous' individuals and loathing females more attractive than themselves.
-daddy issues
-participating in petty social drama
-not getting enough dick, thus feeling the need to convince the rest of the humanity of their grandiosity.
No, a diva is not "the female version of a hustla", more like the female version of Sean "Puffy" Combs...except broke.

A diva is a female performer, usually an opera singer, who is extremely talented but very imperious and tempermental. But the distinguishing factor is that her talent permits somewhat uncouth behaviour. A diva is not necessarily difficult to work with, she is just very professional and and has a low tolerance for incompetence. A diva is NOT just some no-talent pop singer who thinks everyone should acquiesce to her every whim, or even worse, some woman who is unecessarily rude, mean, bitchy, and often stupid just because she "knows what she wants" and revels in being high maitenance. These woman do not deserve the title of diva, because they have no redeeming talent or quality. They are simply loud and oboxious bitches. True divas should be treated with respect for their enormous talent and strong will.
Maria Callas was a quintessential diva, even being nicknamed "La Divina".

Kathleen Battle took her diva ways to new heights, and was subsequently banned from singing at the Metropolitan Opera.
