Exclusive interview with DK: What makes a pop diva?
WittyLeaks: What makes a pop diva?
DK: Well, I'm not the best person to answer this question, but I think that a certain amount of sales is required.
WL: So you have a Marxist perspective on the subject of pop divas. What are some of your other criteria?
DK: A certain amount of unfriendliness, which, if I were to use gendered terms, would be 'bitchiness' which I hope is acceptable to use in this context.
It also helps if the pop diva has been in a cheesy movie like Hocus Pocus.
What about fashion? They probably wear clothes... That didn't come out right.
WL: Who is your favourite pop diva and why?
DK: Um... I wanted to say Björk, but apparently, that is unacceptable because she is considered too high brow.
GJ: Are we still talking about Katy Perry?
DK: G*r*th, not everything is about Katy Perry.
WL: Do you have any other thoughts about pop divas?
DK: We should probably mention something about singing ability because pop divas should naturally be able to sing melismatic stuff.
WL: But what about the pop diva in the age of autotune?
DK: I think that Cher made that perfectly acceptable with "Believe".
