Leann Rimes | The Diva Series | Refresh

Thanks to John, one of Party Favorz followers, I was reminded of the fabulousness of one of country music’s greatest voices, Miss Leann Rimes. Often criticized for being too fat or too skinny, too country or too pop or even [gasp] a husband stealing homewrecker, Miss Rimes is the perfect candidate for DIVA status. When…

Nadia Ali | The Diva Series

In 2001, Nadia Ali was the frontwoman and principal songwriter for the duo Iio (pronounced “eye-oh”), took the world by storm with their international smash Rapture.  They released a series of singles culminating in the release of a full album titled Poetica, in 2005.  That same year, Nadia left the group to pursue a solo…

Jennifer Holliday | The Diva Series

Broadway actress, recording star, gospel singer, Jennifer Holliday is everything a diva represents and more. She was a large woman through much of her career but subsequently lost a tremendous amount of weight. Regardless of her size (us gays love our divas big or small), her voice has always remained the biggest thing about her.…

Celine Dion | The Diva Series

Your humble host has been under the weather for the past several weeks and is way behind in my posts, all of which have been finished for some time now and begging to be unleashed.  I’m trying to take advantage of the best I’ve felt in a long while so here goes… In a nutshell,…

Toni Braxton | The Diva Series

This has  been a long time coming for this multi-platinum and Grammy winning artists. Toni shot into fame in the early 90s after her voice was used as demo for Anita Baker.  Babyface had written You Were Meant For Me with Anita in mind for the Boomerang soundtrack.  Anita turned it down but had suggested…

Mariah Carey 2.0 | The Diva Series

For some odd reason, I thought it was imperative that I do an update to the previous Mimi induction, which I just re-upped for those fans that can never get enough. It was inevitable that some overlap would occur and I did my best to diversify the offerings compared to the latter.  Overall, I’d say…

Xtina | The Diva Series

This week I’ll be posting three brand-spanking new sets of the Diva Series before giving that edition a rest for a couple of months. To kick things off, the one and only Christina Aguilera is being re-inducted to the Diva Hall of Fame and by all accounts, she fits the true definition LOL. The attitude,…

Lady Gaga | The Diva Series

I thought it would be apropos to bookend Katy Perry with Lady Gaga, since they both crashed onto the scene at relatively the same time. Like Katy, I had mixed feelings about Lady G. I didn’t quite get the hysteria over her. Yes, I liked Just Dance and Poker Face but just wasn’t overwhelmed by…

P!nk | The Diva Series

P!nk is no stranger to the Diva Hall of Fame since she’s already been inducted once before. I was never all that happy with the original set and since her greatest hits and recent album dropped, I decided it was time to go back and honor her with a set more fitting of her status.…

Janet Jackson v1 | The Diva Series

This set was originally posted on November 17, 2009.  Since there are no current plans to update Miss Jackson’s original induction, I  thought it was appropriate to go back and revisit her original induction into the Diva Hall of Fame for those fans that missed it the first time around. Janet was signed to a…

Kristine W | The Diva Series

This is a re-post of Kristine W’s original induction into the Diva Hall of Fame from 2011.  Also, I went ahead and re-published an interview I did with her from June 1, 2009.  At the time, you’ll notice her response to marriage equality was a bit flippant if not dismissive based on her own past…
