Il podcast di Meghan Markle, “Archetypes”, è iniziato alla grande. Con solo due episodi rilasciati, la duchessa del Sussex si è già unita in una conversazione con artisti del calibro di Serena Williams e Mariah Carey. Secondo la descrizione dello spettacolo su Spotify, il podcast cerca di “indagare, sezionare e sovvertire” le etichette che sono tipicamente assegnate alle donne in modi dispregiativi.
Markle seemed taken aback, and acknowledged her surprise as she wrapped up the episode. Carey, however, has doubled down.
Mariah Carey continues to reclaim the diva title
Mariah Carey seemed to have fully grasped the message of Meghan Markle's podcast. Despite the duchess being shocked at the "diva" label, Carey maintains that the name does not need to be an insult. Shouting out the podcast on Twitter, Carey wrote, "Really enjoyed talking to Duchess and Diva Meghan Markle about 'The Duality of Diva.' Yes! I called her a diva, in the most fabulous, gorgeous, and empowering meaning of the word!!!"
Despite her initial misgivings, Markle also seemed to come around to the name. "It stopped me in my tracks ... when she called me a diva," Markle reflected at the end of the show. She shared that she immediately feared that Carey had read something negative about her online, but eventually realized that the term could be empowering.
Fans seemed to love the diva crossover. "The episode was amazing Mariah," one wrote. "Thanks for having the long overdue conversation on such an important topic." Another chimed in, "An icon praising another icon #WomenSupportingWoman."
