From one diva to another!
Things turned eye raising for a brief moment on Tuesday, Aug. 30, after Mariah Carey told Meghan Markle to her face that the duchess has her "diva moments."
The moment occurred as Meghan chatted with Mariah on the Duchess' "Archetypes" podcast. During a conversation, Prince Harry's wife told Mimi she does not personally "connect to" the "diva … persona." Mariah, though, quickly butted in, saying, "You give us diva moments sometimes, Meghan. Don't act like [you don't]."
Taken aback about the comments, Megan wondered, "What kind of diva moments did I give you?"
Mariah immediately turned the heat down, saying that the former "Suits" star's "visuals" can be diva-ish, but not her personality.
After having time to digest Mariah's feelings, Meghan felt at ease.
"She must have felt my nervous laughter, and … she jumped right in to make sure I was crystal clear that when she said diva, she was talking about the way I dress, the posture, the clothing. She meant diva as a compliment, but I heard it as a dig," the duchess told listeners. "That moment, as she explained to me, she meant it as chic, as inspirational."
Meghan did note that she was vehemently disagreeing with the "Hero" songstress before the "diva" comment was clarified.
"I was squirming in my chair in my quiet revolt," the removed-royal said. "[The conversation] was all going swimmingly, really well, until that moment happened. It stopped me in my tracks. … My mind was just genuinely spinning on what nonsense she might have read or clicked on to make her say that."
She added, "I just kept thinking in that moment: Is my girl crush coming to a quick demise? Does she actually not see me?"
