Devotion to Divas

di·va ( P ) (dv)n. pl. di·vas or di·ve (-v) An operatic prima donna. A very successful singer of nonoperatic music: a jazz diva.

Recently I had a conversation with a friend who is as equally devoted to these divas as I am. Why is it that we spend so much time reading about them, giggling over their dates, collecting their videos and audios, critiquing their hairstyles and couture and generally doing anything to see them perform? We are straight and normal (by most standards) girls. Is it because we would rather be performers so we are living vicariously? Or is it just love? Who's to say. It would take Freud to explain it thoroughly and I really don't want to hear what he has to say on this topic. Therefore, I remain hopelessly devoted to the Divas.
