Mariah Carey Doubles Down on Calling Meghan Markle a 'Diva'

Mariah Carey has completely embraced her “diva” status — and is passing the compliment onto Meghan Markle. In a tweet promoting their chat on Meghan’s Archetypes podcast, the star singer made no apologies about calling the Duchess of Sussex a “diva” during the interview discussing the multiple meanings — some good, some bad — of the word.

“Really enjoyed talking to Duchess and Diva Meghan Markle about ‘The Duality of Diva.’ Yes! I called her a diva, in the most fabulous, gorgeous, and empowering meaning of the word!!!” Carey, 53, tweeted on Friday. During the podcast, Meghan revealed that she was taken aback when Carey told her, “You give us diva moments sometimes, Meghan.”

“It was all going swimmingly, I mean really well. Until that moment happened, which I don’t know about you, but it stopped me in my tracks when she called me a diva!” Meghan, 41, narrated.

She added: “You couldn’t see me, obviously, but I, I started to sweat a little bit. I started squirming in my chair in this quiet revolt, like, wait, wait, no, what? How? But? How could you? 

That’s not true, that’s not…Why would you say that? My mind genuinely was just spinning with what nonsense she must have read or clicked on to make her say that. I just kept thinking, at that moment, was my girl crush coming to a quick demise? Does she actually not see me?”

Meghan continued: “So she must have felt my nervous laughter, and you all would’ve heard it too. And she jumped right in to make sure I was crystal clear.

“When she said diva, she was talking about the way that I dress, the posture, the clothing, the quote-unquote ‘fabulousness,’ as she sees it. She meant diva as a compliment. But I heard it as a dig. I heard it as the word diva, as I think of it.

“But, in that moment, as she explained to me, she meant it as chic, as aspirational. And how one very charged word can mean something different for each of us, it’s mind blowing to me.”
