Go Behind The Bar With VH1 DIVAS And Smirnoff (VIDEO)

All last week, we got you prepped for VH1 DIVAS with some help from our friends at Diageo. We shared special Smirnoff drink recipes with you, a variety that included the Appletini, Caramel Spiced Tea, Iced Layer Cake, and Pineapple Upside-Down Cake.

Well, when VH1 DIVAS 2012 was held on Sunday night in Los Angeles, the incredibly lovely Kelly Rowland stopped by our exclusive lounge before the show and shared with us some advice on how to be a diva and who her personal diva inspirations are. You can watch Kelly discussing these things and more in our video above, or head directly to our Behind The Bar playlist!
