I wonder when Beyonce decided to become the next Webster (of the dictionary sect). I heard a song of hers on the radio recently ('Diva') and thought to self, hmmmm... 'This is the dumbest thing I've ever heard.'
In the lyrics she proclaims: "A diva is a female version of a hustler." And then repeats it over and over again to the dismay of my hearing... I wonder where she comes up with her logic.
According to dictionary.com, a diva is:
1. a distinguished female singer; prima donna.
And a hustler is:
|1.||an enterprising person determined to succeed; go-getter.|
|2.||Slang. a person who employs fraudulent or unscrupulous methods to obtain money; swindler.|
|3.||Informal. an expert gambler or game player who seeks out challengers, esp. unsuspecting amateur ones, in order to win money from them: He earned his living as a pool hustler.|
|4.||Slang. a prostitute.|
|5.||a person who hustles.|
I guess if I were as rich and famous as her that I would feel entitled to make up definitions for words and then sing about them too. Sigh... I wonder when the last time Beyonce went to market, bought a bunch of fake Louis Vuitton's and sold them on a markup out of her trunk?
