I will spare my readers the redundancy of the previous entry on Garbo, but it is true, some divas just need to be alone. How else would they be divas then?
I am aware of divas that seek the spotlight, the attention, the entourages, the limousine rides and other things. Yet, there are several others (such as yours truly)who would rather be locked away in a cellar in a medevial castle. Let's face it, we divas need time to think so we can be saved the trouble of ending up as misanthropes. If there is one thing divas hate, it is damage control. So as 'El diva' avers, 'why opt for damage control when damage itself can be obviated'.
Of course, when 'El diva' wants to be locked in the cellar, she needs the basic necessities (a good book, art supplies and a computer with wi-fi access) in order to have some semblance of a minimalistic and temporarily-reclusive existence.
The time-out doesn't necessarily contribute to the enigmatic status of the diva, but one can't help but wonder what a diva locked in a cellar is good for....
