Mariah Carey is a guest on the latest episode of Archetypes, Meghan Markle’his podcast. The two women bond over being biracial, but also discuss a word that has been used to describe them both over the years: diva. Mariah says she doesn’t mind being called that, but she also doesn’t like its negative connotations.

The word originally meant a very talented woman, usually in the arts, like an opera singer. Mariah tells Meghan: “People now take it as a compliment, some people take it, and then some take it, ‘Oh, she’s so diva.” When Meghan asks if it’s a compliment or a criticism, Mariah says: “I think it’s both. For me, it’s both.”

“It became like… it means you’re a successful woman, usually,” she tells Meghan. “But also… ab***h. It’s not good to be the boss. It’s not okay to be a strong woman.” Mariah admits that most of the time, her super-diva behavior is “laughable,” and her fans know it.

When asked by Meghan to describe herself in three words, Mariah doesn’t choose diva. Instead, she says, “Exhausted, angry… but hopeful… But if I have to describe it all, it’s faith, honestly.”
