Estelle: Birth of a Diva

She proves she's more than a lady in waiting.

"I really think that sometimes I was reincarnated somehow. I especially like Tammi Terrell and Marvin Gaye. I used to listen to [their Greatest Hits] over and over and over and over. It's like, wow, you know?"

Indeed. Wow and double wow. In fact, one can kind of see Estelle and Kanye becoming some 21st-century equivalent of Motown's most famous duo. If, that is, she can keep her duets tied down to one man. I mean, did you see the way she sassily strutted around in Gym Class Heroes' clip for "Guilty as Charged"? It's deliciously scandalous.

And while all of that sass and strut might mark the traits of a true diva, they also represent the newfound glory of a woman who has come into her own after four long years of finding herself between The 18th Day and Shine. "The Estelle of 2004 was a kid," she wisely remarks. "And the Estelle of 2008 is a woman. It's as simple as that. Before it was about what the world should be like; now it's about what the world is like."
