Diva Trivia

Ask most people what a "diva" is and they will most likely tell you one of the following: a successful female opera singer (as in 'opera diva') ... or a demanding, fussy woman who thinks she's the best thing on earth and expects everyone to adore her (a prima donna).
Diva also means "goddess" in Italian and is derived from the feminine form of "divus" (male, Latin for "Divine One"). It is this meaning which will be applied to Diva, the window lamp ... (although she has been known to exhibit traits of the showy kind of diva when she's ready).

And Divas are Divas for good reason -


They have the power to fascinate and entertain in a meaningful way.


Can be too egoistical which tends to devalue personality and, to some extent, talent.

Lamps may have a spot of ego and can be a Diva, but it's only because they do shine :)
