In a new interview exclusive to CBC, Streisand swears she's just an
ordinary person and not a diva at all.
I thought you might find this amusing. I don't much care either way but
I've certainly heard her called a diva many times over the years.
"Where there's smoke...."
LOL! She's such a diva she has an entire "effect" named after her:
The Streisand Effect is an unintended consequence of attempts to hide, remove
or censor information, where the effort instead backfires by increasin
awareness of that information. It is named after American singer and actres
Barbra Streisand, whose attempt to suppress the California Coastal Recor
Project's photograph of her cliff-top residence in Malibu, California, whic
was taken to document California coastal erosion, inadvertently drew fa
greater attention to the heretofore obscure photograph.
The Streisand Effect is an example of psychological reactance, wherein onc
people are aware that some information is being kept from them, they ar
significantly more motivated to acquire and spread it that information.
