1. (noun) property attributed to, or used to describe the demeanor of people who want to perform on stage: sing, standup, drag, etc. These are people who in their hearts enjoy being on stage and pursue it as a creative outlet.
2. (noun) property attributed to professional performers, usually women, or men in drag, as an indefinable factor of excitement that enhances their performance or stage presence, or diminishes the performance if it is missing.
3. (noun) property attributed to, or used to describe the demeanor of self-absorbed people who are always performing, nonstop (24 hours a day) even though they are not a performer, nor onstage. They are typically brash, boisterous, cannot remain quiet, and have the need to comment on almost everything. Often they portray their lives as fraught with busy-ness, drama and intrigue, and they enjoying telling the saga of their continuous struggle to overcome every obstacle. Such people desire to be the center of attention through this passive-aggressive behaviour. They are oblivious to the fact that people around them may not be interested and may even be irritated by their disruptive, self-centered attitude.
Steven always wanted to perform on stage. He had finally had enough, his Diva Energy prevailed. So he quit his six-figure attorney job, and joined the local actors’ guild.
Tatiana’s performances are just not what they used to be. Her concert last night was missing her usual Diva Energy.
Jeremy's loud comments and laughter during the meetings were generally disruptive, especially during Susan's award presentation for her outstanding work on the project.
I am so sick of David's Diva Energy. He is always late to rehearsal, forgets his music, and comments every time we stop playing. He actually talks out-loud to those around him when the conductor is rehearsing the brass.
