There are instances of nasty nicknames for many singers, but that was NOT where I was 
going.  I came from the era of La Divina, La Stupenda, La Superba, etc, so was wondering as 
Radvanovsky is reaching the success rate in repertory where those names were applied 
whether it was time for a new one.  As I said, "La Rad" has no poetry.  As an aside, wasnt 
Pippo a childhood nickname that Di Stefano just kept?  I never heard it considered or treated 
as a negative term.
