Sarah Silverman On "Divas" (and More...)

Over the years, watching Real Time with Bill Maher has become something of a Sabbath ritual for me. This week, he brought along the hot Hebrew honey herself, Ms. Sarah Silverman. Personally, I'm a big fan... and apparently so is Bill! In that way... I digress. Among the many topics which were discussed during the hour (Dr. Michael Eric Dyson was also a guest), Silverman discussed what it means -- and doesn't mean -- to be a diva. Peep the steez:
First of all, people who say they're divas... you're not a diva. I'm pretty sure you're a cunt. You're not a diva. You can't just call yourself... You can't be rude and thoughtless and selfish and just label yourself "diva" and that makes that okay. No, you're a cunt. [...] I don't think it's acceptable. You're not a diva, you're a broken person that's making it impossible to feel sorry for you.
Take that Beyoncé!
