Sharleen Spiteri, who is the band Texas has never been shy about expressing her opinions. And if those opinions are about Whitney Houston, then watch out. She gave an interview to Gay Times, which is a magazine in England. In the interview she was asked about divas and she related this lovely story about Whitney Houston.
"(The word diva is) just another way of saying c**t. I remember performing at an awards ceremony with Whitney Houston, and she had to be carried down a flight of stairs. People like that deserve to be slapped. I'm all for a little bit of slapping when there's a really bad attitude. That kind of attitude is just bad manners. Some people confuse a bad attitude with bad manners, but bad manners are just a whole different ball game. You should be, if possible, locked in a cupboard or something. Taught a lesson until you're begging to come out."
Does being so drunk that you have to get wheeled out of a bar on a dolly and being unceremoniously dumped on the sidewalk count as bad manners, because if so, then I am in serious trouble.
