Divas Quotes By Lisa Marie Presley

Divas Quotes By Francia Raisa

My eyelashes are divas, so they will like a mascara brand one week or for a month, and then they'll just stop working for it. I go back and forth between Maybelline and Cover Girl, and then I carry around a primer, too. — Francia Raisa

Divas Quotes By Iain Sinclair

Michael Heseltine, a wild-haired visionary, Klaus Kinski to Margaret's Thatcher's Werner Herzog, pushed Docklands across the Thames to the East Greenwich Peninsula. The Millennium Dome concept was a remake of 'Fitzcarraldo', a film in which suborned natives (expendable extras) drag a paddle steamer over a hill in order to force a short cut to more exploitable territory. The point being to bring Enrico Caruso, one of the gods of opera, to an upstream trading post. An insane achievement mirrored in the rebranding of the Dome, after its long and expensive limbo, as the O2 Arena, a popular showcase for cryogenic rock acts:Norma Desmond divas and the resurrected Michael Jackson, whose virtual rebirth,post-mortem, gave the shabby tent the status of a riverside cathedral. — Iain Sinclair

Divas Quotes By Christopher Rice

Ultimately, I felt fortunate, because in many ways I did identify with aspects of being gay that were very stereotypical. I was a big theatre kid in high school, I was creative, I was very emotionally sensitive, even hypersensitive. I loved female divas. — Christopher Rice

Divas Quotes By Anastacia

You know later in life I was inspired to sing and that would've been Aretha, Chaka Khan, Mariah - the typical divas were the inspiration. I've always enjoyed all those singers. — Anastacia

Divas Quotes By T.J. Klune

is Whitney? Is that your dealer?" "Whitney Houston," Mom said. "You know, dear. She was that singer who sang that song you like that Helena performed." "'Hit Me Baby, One More Time?" "That's Britney, dear." "'Dirty?" "That was Christina." "Umbrella?" "And that was Rihanna. Larry, you're embarrassing yourself. You have a gay son, for God's sake. How can you not know your divas?" Mom sounded affronted. "Paul? Paul! If you can hear me, don't listen to your father! He obviously doesn't know his ass from his elbow!" "Language," Dad scolded. "And I know my divas. I know them very well. What about that Woman Goo-Goo that Helena performs like? — T.J. Klune

Divas Quotes By Eric Schmidt

Knaves are not to be confused with divas. Knavish behavior is a product of low integrity; diva-ish behavior is one of high exceptionalism. Knaves prioritize the individual over the team; divas think they are better than the team, but want success equally for both. Knaves need to be dealt with as quickly as possible. — Eric Schmidt

Divas Quotes By Bill Maher

New Rule: Let the Pope be Pope. An animal-rights group in Italy has asked Pope Benedict to give up his fur-trimmed cape and hat. To which the Pope replied, "Don't be hatin' on my cape, bitch." Sorry, but Popes are the original divas, they invented bling, they've been wearing outlandish outfits for a thousand years
almost as long as Elton John. The clothes, the jewels, the fancy palace ... Those aren't just symbols of the Papacy, they are the Papacy. The day the Pope shows up on the balcony in a pair of jeans and polo shirt is the day a billion Catholics go, "What the hell were we thinking? — Bill Maher

Divas Quotes By His Holiness Divas

Fear is the root of all evil. Better live a single day fearlessly than living a long but fearful life. Especially, never fear another human being. Fear is the root of all relationship problems. — His Holiness Divas

Divas Quotes By Tori Amos

Divas Quotes By Mickie James

If you're looking for someone who can beat the RAW divas, perhaps you should choose someone who's beaten every diva on RAW. — Mickie James

Divas Quotes By Courtney Love

I don't watch reality TV much, but sometimes I'll be on the E! channel and see that show "Total Divas", about female wrestlers. It's like, fake tits are de rigueur. Nose jobs are de rigueur. Exaggerated asses are de rigueur. Twerking is de rigueur. — Courtney Love

Divas Quotes By Sheryl Lee Ralph

I love singing; I just don't get to do it enough. The times that I do it, once a year, every year with 'Divas Simply Singing,' is a truly joy to me, but I'd love to do it some more. — Sheryl Lee Ralph

Divas Quotes By Holly Morris

Why is it that when Robert Redford-cum-Denys Finch Hatton flies away in the golden glow out of Africa, he is pursuing his destiny? And when I walk away I'm just a chick who's scared of commitment and on the run, who's weird for ignoring Glamour magazine's predictions of my eggs drying up? Learning is an underrated form of liberation. — Holly Morris

Divas Quotes By Zadie Smith

In place of negative falsification, we have nurtured, in the past thirty years, a new fetishization. Black female protagonists are now unerringly strong and soulful; they are sexually voracious and unafraid; they take the unreal forms of earth mothers, African queens, divas, spirits of history; they process grandly through novels thick with a breed of greeting-card lyricism. They have little of the complexity, the flaws and uncertainties, depth and beauty of Janie Crawford and the novel she springs from. — Zadie Smith

Divas Quotes By Gugu Mbatha-Raw

I didn't really grow up on hip-hop. Ella Fitzgerald and the old school jazz divas are more my comfort zone. — Gugu Mbatha-Raw

Divas Quotes By Ariana Grande

I'm not going to do anything crazy, but I want to do music that I'm passionate about. I'm finally at an age where I can do the music that I grew up loving, which was urban pop, '90s music. I grew up listening to the divas, so I'm very happy to finally do urban pop. I hope that it's received well, and it has been so far. — Ariana Grande

Divas Quotes By His Holiness Divas

With a sense of humor, you can tackle any situation in life. Moreover, you'll also learn to see the funny side of things. — His Holiness Divas

Divas Quotes By Gregory David Roberts

FORTY-SEVEN We found Diva in a shriek of Divas, in the lobby of the President hotel. The three of them stopped, staring at us with well-practised aghast. Didier was in a rumpled, white linen jacket and — Gregory David Roberts

Divas Quotes By Janet Jackson

I have met Mariah before and she's really cool and so funny. Everyone has been given the wrong impression of her, and maybe it is her doing. But you have to remember that celebrities are always in the spotlight and are sometimes forced to conduct themselves in a different way than they normally do. That's how it is in the business. I have met artists who are real divas, but Mariah Carey is not one of them. She is a very sweet person, and what nobody sees off camera is the real person she is on the inside. — Janet Jackson

Divas Quotes By Nick Cannon

Imagine if you've got the diva of all divas. If we've got to be somewhere at five or six o'clock, I tell her its time to go at noon so she gets those five hours to do what she needs to do. But were both kids at heart. She is the funniest person ever and she has a great sense of humor. We connect at a spiritual level. — Nick Cannon

Divas Quotes By Dennis Vickers

Words are harsh mistresses, to be sure. Like petulant divas, they want only those parts that play to their talents and mask their blemishes, and only when complete companies of players who love their parts are assembled will they sing in harmony. I am your director for this stage production and will employ my best wiles to create a performance both truthful, and beautiful. I know that words are tricksters who show one face to you and another to me, so I am never certain you'll hear in your head what I hear in my head. Since I deliver even this little truth with words, I acknowledge the irony. — Dennis Vickers

Divas Quotes By CM Punk

On the road, the WWE is a family. The divas are my sisters, and like any big brother, I don't want creeps around my little sisters. — CM Punk

Divas Quotes By Rufus Wainwright

I've written songs for Shirley Bassey, Marianne Faithfull, and Linda Thompson. I sort of focus on these wonderful, aging divas. But maybe that's because I think I'm Christina Aguilera. — Rufus Wainwright

Divas Quotes By Holly Morris

If there's one thing the divas have shown it is that to indulge your passions fully is to know yourself completely. Only then can you treat the rest of the world
its people, its ecosystems, its politics
with provocative wit and compassion. — Holly Morris

Divas Quotes By Wayne Koestenbaum

The beauty and magnitude of a diva's voice resides, so the iconography suggests, in her deformity. Her voice is beautiful because she herself is not-and her ugliness is interpreted as a sign of moral and social deviance. Reading biographies of divas, I can't ignore the repeated references to physical flaws-for example, Benedetta Pisaroni's "features horribly disfigured by small-pox," prompting spectators to shut their eyes "so as to hear without being condemned to see." Audiences speculated that Maria Malibran was not anatomically a woman, but an androgyne or hermaphrodite-an aberrant physique to match her voice's magic power. — Wayne Koestenbaum

Divas Quotes By Eric Schmidt

Steve Jobs was one of the greatest business divas the world has ever known!) — Eric Schmidt

Divas Quotes By Fiona Apple

Divas are not made, they are born. — Fiona Apple

Divas Quotes By Sharon Lucas

Real Divas Read! — Sharon Lucas

Divas Quotes By Kate DeAraugo

You know what we pride ourselves on that - although I wouldn't mind if my backside was a little smaller. But look at the original divas ... take Aretha Franklin for example - I've seen her live in the States and she was mammoth, but she had that crowd under control and they doted on every movement she made! We're not little midgets but the music industry is not about that, it's about loving the music and respecting what you do. — Kate DeAraugo

Divas Quotes By Ana Layevska

Foreign audiences are used to seeing Mexico in other sorts of movies. 'Casi divas' is a step toward a more commercially successful cinema, without the violence, blood and exaggerations. The movie reflects a more human Mexico, while remaining a chick flick, although it is not a romantic comedy. — Ana Layevska

Divas Quotes By Tom Peters

Divas do it, golfers do it, pilots do it, violists do it, sprinters do it, soldiers do it, surgeons do it, astronauts do it ... only business people think it isn't necessary to train. — Tom Peters

Divas Quotes By Philip Treacy

I do say I'm a specialist in divas. Name a diva - I've worked with 'em. — Philip Treacy

Divas Quotes By Tyler Perry

I don't do divas. I don't do entourages. I don't do the Hollywood crap. — Tyler Perry

Divas Quotes By Jessie J.

Sometimes you have to be a diva. All the artists I admire from Madonna to Whitney to Mariah have all been called divas. If you are strong, if you have vision, if you are an artist, you have to do what you believe in. And if you get called a diva for it, then so what. — Jessie J.

Divas Quotes By Joseph O'Connor

The world's full of idiots, divas and assholes, mainly in Ireland. In Ireland, one cannot achieve anything if he is not a little wacky. That's a holy truth. It just simply cannot be otherwise. — Joseph O'Connor

Divas Quotes By Naomi Campbell

When I first got Yves Saint Laurent Couture, I didn't know how to take off a cape. I would ask Katoucha and Dalma - the real divas of the runway - 'Can you show me?' I've never been afraid to ask for help. — Naomi Campbell

Divas Quotes By His Holiness Divas

Live an adventurous life. Every adventure freshens your life anew, and you do not get bored. An adventurous person dies only once, but a coward dies thousands of times. — His Holiness Divas

Divas Quotes By His Holiness Divas

Do whatever makes you happy. Whatever makes you happy is good, right and holy. Your happiness is the only measuring rod. Your happiness is the only truth. Everything else is false. — His Holiness Divas

Divas Quotes By Adrian Grenier

Celebrities become divas because they get pampered so much, babied so much - then they get used to it. — Adrian Grenier

Divas Quotes By Lady Onyxx

Come on Duchess, I'm down with you," Satin announced as she pulled a pair of rhinestone brass knuckles from her Birkin bag. "Knuckle up divas! — Lady Onyxx

Divas Quotes By Patti LaBelle

Real divas give 150 percent. If they don't have the right dress, they'll go out in whatever they have. If there are no microphones, they'll still put on a show. They are people who put their heart and soul in what they do. — Patti LaBelle

Divas Quotes By Alison Moyet

Of all the soul divas, Gladys Knight was the one for me. Knight's always been about tone and heart, none of the big showboating or extraneous doodling. She nailed a melody and only played a little around the edges like Ma Staple. — Alison Moyet

Divas Quotes By Holly Morris

Adventure should be part of everyone's life. It is the whole difference between being fully alive and just existing. — Holly Morris

Divas Quotes By Richard O'Brien

Life's too short to be working with divas. — Richard O'Brien

Divas Quotes By Eric Schmidt

Knaves need to be dealt with as quickly as possible. But as long as their contributions match their outlandish egos, divas should be tolerated and even protected. — Eric Schmidt

Divas Quotes By Lisa Mantchev

What a diva!"
"Stupid, men can't be divas ... "

"That just sounds weird. Call him a jerk and be done with it. — Lisa Mantchev
