    Of course they/we are. Could as well have said that men singers are judged in ways women are not.

    One suspects Ms. Norman at this
    stage of her life is having fun .The Hard talk show is just theatrical baloney
    with a sliver of truth thrown in for good measure. It was fun to watch her
    carry on the diva bit and she was the
    real thing , still looks terrific ….

  3. John Borstlap says:

    I saw the interview on TV and it was great. Especially thrilling is the fragment of Mrs Norman singing the Liebestod in Africa-style garb, against a backdrop of fire… this would have sent Wagner in paroxisms of contradictory emotions, a pleasant thought.

    Miss Norman does not need to read her critics or watch the news about what they say of her because she is a diva, a real diva and great artist. She is , in one word, excellent. May God bless her forever !
