Apparently still stinging from having been cropped out of a photo illustrating a recent PEOPLE Magazine cover story on “The New Pop Divas,” Gloria Estefan (who has graced the PEOPLE cover before) held up our magazine on Thursday’s “Rosie O’Donnell Show” and aired her gripes. “The unthinkable has happened,” she said. “I’ve been de-‘diva’-ed.” She pointed out a shot taken at last April’s VH1 “Divas Live” concert in which she was standing next to Shania Twain, Aretha Franklin and Mariah Carey. “There I am!,” said Estefan. “See that pinky? That’s me! Thank God I had a manicure.” Estefan said she’s starting a help line to protect other people from falling off diva bandwagons (call 1-800-IMA-DIVA), and then she sang, to the tune of the Monkees’ “I’m a Believer.” It went, in part: “I’m P.O.’d, I’m not a diva, They used a cleaver and cut me out.”
