What does diva mean?

A rude woman

A diva is a slang term that refers to a rude, demanding woman. It originally used to refer to a talented female singer, but now refers to women in general who think the world revolves around them.

Not all female superstars are divas, just the ones who become conceited and mean to those "below" them. But since the term has broadened, it can also be used to describe high maintenance GFs and wives or just a very rude woman.
