Face it. Some folks weren't walking around like ordinary citizens and then suddenly became divas. Well . . . not most folks.
Typically, the title is earned through blood, sweat, and tears. Or . . . it's genetic. You're born with the title by default by diva royalty.
Although even that's not always a given.
Madonna's daughter Lourdes = Diva. Cher's daughter Chastity now Chaz Bono = not so much.
You know who I'm talking about. They're not quite the little girls in those pageants you see wearing makeup heavier than tiaras.
They're more like the girls that run around in tutus with magic wands and tiaras when it's not Halloween.
They brush their hair back alot like a shampoo commercial.
They're fussy about their clothes matching. They have enough baby dolls and Barbies to have stock in Mattel.
And despite all this, they can beat up boys if provoked.
Yes. THOSE little girls.
They're genetic predisposition is "diva." They're wired that way from embryos. But "diva" is such an adult label. And we all want these precious little darlings to stay little and adorable as long as possible.
So to that end, we bestow upon them another title until they've graduated to "Diva". It's age appropriate. Yet it gets the same message across.
It's 'Princess' - the perfect title before graduating to diva royalty.
