- After much speculation on her next on-air project, Paula Abdul was tapped by VH1 to host the live concert program, VH1 Divas. Female artists scheduled to perform during the live telecast on September 17 at 9p include Jordin Sparks, Adele, Kelly Clarkson, Leona Lewis and Miley Cyrus. The event will feature the artists performing together at the Brooklyn Academy of Music Howard Gilman Opera House in Brooklyn, NY as well as other presenters and special guests. Similar to previous specials, this VH1 Divas will raise money for the non-profit organization, VH1 Save The Music Foundation whose mission is to restore instrumental music education in American public schools and stressing the importance of music as part of a child's education.

I could give two shits about what Paula Abdul is up to, but remember when the Divas specials on VH1 had, like, ARETHA FRANKLIN on them? Are we already out of really good female singers? And I love Kelly, but aren't three of those people from American Idol? Maybe it's just because Jordin Sparks irritates me, but ech.

Jordin Sparks irritates the shit out of me, and you know I LOVES me some crappy music, but this is.... this is like an epic example of it. (Except Kelly, whom I love, but really? You're like 27 and a humble sweet little thing from Texas. Not a diva. Could be later, but not yet.)

EXACTLY. I think Mariah Carey did a great job when she was on Divas, but remember when Aretha gave her a vocal spanking on stage? SKILLZ.

Mariah Carey was just a bitch, not a diva. Man, she sucks. Especially now.

When Sarah Silverman was on Bill Maher's show, she said something like, "I get sick of women saying they're 'divas.' No, you're not a diva, you're just a c*nt." That's what I think of when I hear the name "Mariah Carey."

Is she a bitch? I've always filed her under the "crazy" category.

How 'bout "crazy bitch?" :)

I think "crazy" is probably more fitting, good call.

Not that I follow Mariah Carey news enough to see if she's also a bitch. I just know the big crazy stunts. :D That's the way I like my celebrity news: pretty boys and wacky antics.

Yes, because when I think diva, I think Miley Cyrus.

You keep using that word, VH1. I do not think it means what you think it means.

She's a celebrity, so she might be a diva in a certain sense, but not the one they should be going for.
