1. She has the voice of an angel.

Unfortunately her personality is more like a shrew.

2. She's lovely :)

But yeah, she's a diva , no more Diva-ish than Callas and other "difficult" singers.

3. Love life

Ms Battle has been remarkably successful in keeping her private life private, no mention anywhere of husbands, lovers, children, and no pictures of her with a partner. Perhaps with her allegedly narcissitic personality coupled with the constant travelling she found long-term commitment difficult?

4. But at the same at least one of us has found it necessary to cast some baseless shade. Shame on you.

5. Rebuttal

Just thought it was an interesting point how little personal information on such an artist that there is; in any biography of the great & the good (and the bad) the subject's relationships & effect thereof on their careers are generally considered to be important and any future Battle biographer will need to know these things, other than that I admire her discretion. No idea what "baseless shade" is supposed to mean.

6. The lady doth protest too much. An alternate, proper conclusion is that Ms Battle apreciates her ...

privacy and has acted in her life so as to not have raised any hint of impropriety. To assume otherwise is a baseless casting of shade. Which you did. Hence, for shame.

It of course raises another question. To wit: why answer an OP a year old to make a snide remark regarding Ms Battle?

7. Cont.

"Ms Battle apreciates (sic) her privacy and has acted in her life so as to not have (sic) raised any hint of impropriety"
I agree, that's the point I was making (which I think you misunderstand), & I don't assume otherwise. I resent the suggestion it was "snide". As for the date of the post it was the first one I happened to come across that was appropriate for the subject, didn't really expect any constructive insights.

8. And you certainly added nothing constructive....

have (sic) raised, nice try. Your intimation is that Ms Battle has successfully hidden some sort of imbroglio regarding her personal relationships, a mean-spirited speculation on your part. Deny it, but you said it.

9. Don Quijote

I appreciate your efforts to defend Ms Battle's reputation but you seem to have convinced yourself that I intended to impugn it, which indeed I do deny. It's to her credit that a veil lies over this part of her life, indeed if there had been some kind of "imbroglio" then we'd probably know about it. This is becoming repetitive, I suggest we give it a rest.

10. So why don't you give it a rest? Go after someone else in a nasty manner for a while and ...

stop making, as you admit yourself, speculative comments about Ms Battle.
