I Hate VH1 for Devaluing the Word "Diva"

VH1 recently announced its lineup for "Divas 2012," and all I can say is Are you [pardon my French]fucking kidding me????

Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus, Kelly Rowland, Ciara, and Jordin Sparks. Only two of those ladies (Kelly and Jordin) can sing without auto-tune; and, let's face it, even with auto-tune, those chicks can't sing. Jordin and Kelly are okay, maybe even good(ish), but they are not divas!

Look, I get that Whitney and Donna dead, Chaka and Aretha are old, and Mariah and Christina have been on "Divas" already; but at least these ladies truly personify a "diva." Adam Lambert (the emcee) embodies a diva better than Miley Cyrus. Heck, at least he can sing.

Why doesn't VH1 just call it what it really is—"Pandering to the Teen and Young 20s Demographic 2012"???

I feel about VH1 the same way The Big Bang Theory's Sheldon feels about Apple's Genius Bar.

Just. Stop.
