Beyonce admits to being a diva, see her many examples
Beyonce wasnâ€™t kidding when she sang â€œIâ€™m a diva!â€
So believe her. Don’t be fooled by the Southern charm she displays in her interviews. I admit I was. I have all the Destiny’s Child albums and her four solo albums. Her House of Dereon purses and her Heat perfume.
So as a longtime supporter, I have a right to express my opinion of Mrs. Shawn Carter.
And in my bold opinion, Beyonce is a bonavide diva. Actually, I’m not being so bold because the facts speak for themselves. Just look at the evidence.
Beyonce kicked out two original members of Destiny’s Child when they were tired of being background singers.
She took two limos to cross the street for a brief window shopping trip in London, and she demanded the Secret Service leave their post during the historical inauguration of the first black president of the United States to drive her to her car just four blocks away. She lobbied hard to sing for the president’s first dance and sang Etta James’ classic song, “At Last”, while the recently deceased legend was still living.
She dropped $1.3 million to renovate a hospital suite to give birth to her first child, and her security restricted other new parents from their babies to protect the multiple Grammy winning singer.
These are most definitely the actions of a diva and very contrary to the humble, modest persona that Beyonce has cultivated to do damage control when Destiny’s Child almost fell apart because of her diva actions.
B personifies a diva to the point that a scientist has labeled “the all-time diva of flies” after Beyonce.
Check out this hilarious spoof of Queen B.
Beyonce used to explain away her diva-tude by saying it’s just her alter ego, Sasha Fierce. So either she should be heavily medicated for having a split personality or it’s just how she really is.
But now B doesn’t have to hide that she’s a diva. She wears being a diva so proudly that she made a hit song, singing “I’m the No. 1 diva in this game”, and she laughed all the way to the bank after we bought her wholesome image hook line and sinker. While going on her “I am … Sasha Fierce” tour to declare to the world that she and her diva alter ego are the same, she earned more than $100 million in two years, and is considered the highest paid female entertainer in the world, according to Forbes.
So at this point, it doesn’t matter if Beyonce’s diva actions turn people off. She proudly declares that she’s a diva.
