Look at Adele looking all slinky and sexy on one of the posters for VH1’s annual Divas Live, dominated this year by the cream of the crop, tip of the top, something something ‘op’ of British lady talent.
Not only Adele, who will obviously rock da house and shock da house, but the be-lovely Leona Lewis, who will simper in a long, long dress, make sounds that will open garage doors two blocks down and generally be the classiest thing to come out of Hackney since… *mind goes blank, visions of Diane Abbott appear in front of eyes*
Down the shallow end we have Kelly Clarkson, the vile Miley Cyrus and who-she-unless-you-watch-American-Idol Jordin Sparks. And to think the first ever Divas Live had Mariah, Aretha, Gloria, Celine and Carole King.
Aretha must be turning in her grave. Can’t you feel the earth move (Carole King ref there if you want it)? Oh, Aretha’s not dead?
Well, she is to us!
