Mariah Carey brands Meghan Markle a ‘diva’ as she tells her ‘it’s the visual’

Meghan Markle has admitted she started to sweat in disbelief when her "girl crush" labelled her a diva on the Duchess of Sussex's new podcast – Archetypes.

The podcast comes after Meghan signed a deal with worldwide platform, Spotify, after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex removed themselves from the Royal Family.

The first episode featured Serena Williams, but the latest release starred Mariah Carey as the guest, someone Meghan referred to as her girl crush.

Meghan says: “That’s really important for people to remember that there might be this persona, this diva thing we can play into. It’s not something I connect to but for you, it’s been a huge part.”

Then in the midst of conversation, Mariah labels Meghan herself – a diva. The singer said: "You give us diva moments sometimes Meghan. Don’t even act like.”

Meghan was audibly shocked at the statement.

Meghan responds with: “What kind of diva moments do I give you?

Carey adds laughing: “Don’t act like you… it’s also the visual.”

Meghan replies: “Oh it’s the look.”

During her voiceover, Meghan says she started to “sweat” when Carey called her a diva, and wanted a justification for Carey’s remarks.

“Though my fan-girling was tempered today, I kind of think she could tell, but that aside, it was all going swimmingly. I mean really well until that moment happened, which I don’t know about you but it stopped me in my tracks when she called me a diva."

Meghan Continued: “You couldn’t see me obviously, but I started to sweat a little bit, I started squirming in my chair in this quiet revolt. Like wait, what? No what? How could you? That’s not true. Why would you say that?

"My mind genuinely was just spinning with what nonsense she must have read or clicked on to make her say that?".

Despite the fact Meghan could have potentially edited out that part of the conversation, she kept it in and carried on narrating her reaction to the conversation she had just had with an obvious hero:

“I just kept thinking in that moment, was my girl crush coming to a quick demise? Does she actually not see me?

“So she must have felt my nervous laughter and you all would have heard it too and she jumped right in to make sure I was crystal clear. When she said diva, she was talking about the way that I dress, the posture of a clothing, a quote unquote fabulousness as she sees it."

Finally, the duchess of Sussex expresses her relief.

Meghan added: “She meant diva as a compliment. I heard it as a dig. Heard it as the word diva as I think of it, but in that moment, as she explained to me, she meant it as chic, as aspirational.”
