The term "diva" is derived from the Italian word for "goddess" and was originally used to refer to divinely talented and fanatically celebrated female opera stars. The term is now more widely used to describe gifted women performers in all forms of music as well as theater and cinema.
"Diva" has also acquired some negative connotations, being used to suggest a star is difficult or has an inflated opinion of herself -- but that really misses the celebratory spirit of the term. What might be fairly -- said about a diva is that she has high expectations -- for herself and of the people and things she surrounds herself with, and a taste for the finer things in life. So when a diva moves house, the properties they leave behind will fit even the most discriminating tastes.
Here are some famous divas' former homes, ready to give anyone with the cash a taste of the lifestyles of the rich and famous:
