In a recent interview with the UK’s Pride magazine, pregnant diva Mariah Carey offered her views on the ‘new breed of divas’. Check out what the expectant mother of twins had to say after the jump…
Via Mariah Daily:
Who do you admire out of the new breed of divas?
I don’t really follow every new act — they come out constantly. There are so many, it’s often hard to keep track, and sometimes they’re here today and gone tomorrow. I admire my friends, like Beyonce and Nicki Minaj — people who seem destined to be doing this for a living with longevity.
While I feel it too soon to to deem Minaj a diva, kudos to Mariah for picking acts with undeniable talent and drive. Then again, a seasoned diva herself, I expect no less from ol’ Mimi. As an acclaimed singer-songwriter (with a career spanning two decades), I’m sure she knows the difference between true talent and flavour of the moment (“eh eh eh”).
Interesting nonetheless would be her views on the likes of Leona, Jennifer Hudson, and the like. For, many argue such singers to be the new breed occupying the stiletto’s once strutted in by the likes of Mariah and Whitney Houston.
