Meghan Markle has been called out by one of the biggest divas in Hollywood! On a new episode of the former actress' new podcast "Archetypes," she was chatting with singer Mariah Carey when Markle insisted that she doesn't "connect" with the "diva persona" — something Carey found laughable.

"You give us diva moments sometimes, Meghan," noted the "Fantasy" crooner. "Don’t act like [you don’t]." Markle clearly wasn't expecting that kind of reaction, prompting her to question, "What kind of diva moments did I give you?"

The Grammy winner explained that she was referring to the Duchess of Sussex's appearance and "visuals," not her personality. She soon realized that she caught Markle completely off guard, so she clarified that she was just "playing" around with the Suits star.

Elsewhere in the discussion, the ladies bonded over their shared experience of growing up biracial.

"I didn't fit in. You know, it would be more of the Black area of town or then you could be where my mom chose to live, were the more, the white neighborhoods," Carey expressed. "And I didn't fit in anywhere at all."

Markle recalled how much she used to look up to Carey and her career.

"You were so formative for me," she gushed. "Representation matters so much. But when you are a woman and you don't see a woman who looks like you somewhere in a position of power or influence, or even just on the screen — because we know how influential media is — you came onto the scene, I was like 'Oh, my gosh. Someone kind of looks like me.'"

"It's very different because we're light-skinned," the Montecito, Calif., resident pointed out. "You're not treated as a Black woman. You're not treated as a white woman. You sort of fit in between."

Markle added that people never commented on her race until she was thrust into the spotlight a few years ago.

"I mean, if there's any time in my life that it's been more focused on my race, it's only once I started dating my husband [Prince Harry]. Then I started to understand what it was like to be treated like a Black woman," continued the mom-of-two. "Because up until then, I had been treated like a mixed woman. And things really shifted."
