    Default Insulted by a "Diva"

    Just before Christmas, took missuses to see a female soul act who was quite prominent in the 90s at a JAZZ cafe in Bristol.

    Anyway, after the gig she was propping up the bar so my wife and I decided to tell her how much we'd enjoyed the concert on the way out, in particular her version of We Shall Not Be Mo bed.

    Well, what a sour cow she was."Oh per-leeze, don't you think I don't know how good I am? And do you mind, you're in MY backstage".

    Wife was upset by this. Felt like giving the cheek cow a slap.


    Have no idea what provoked that reaction. Isn't it a dome thing to talk to a performer after their act? Perhaps its just singers. Backing band seemed ok particularly as I told the drummer he needed a new servo unit on his Land Rover.

    Anyone else got any stories of celebrities acting like tossers?

    What a cow, I suppose if your taken by surprise difficult to come up with a retort, like "sorry we just wanted to point out that for a "has been" you're pretty good".

    Still next time you meet a Diva have a "barbed" compliment prepared.

    Oliver Reed, but as it was Oliver Reed we let him off.

    We were staying at a small hotel in the middle of nowhere in deepest Devon and he happened to be a guest as well. He wasn't actually insulting, but while the rest of us guests were enjoying a good whodunnit, he just got pissed and ran around with shaving foam all over his face pretending to be a rabid werewolf.
