    She never addressed that she capitulated with Hitler’s regime.
    She vaunts the cultural superiority of Germany.
    She notably loathed ethnic minorities, handicapped and homosexual people.
    She couldn't physically stand contemporary music.
    Like Greta Garbo, she lead a reclusive life and avoided being filmed or photographed.
    Her husband and Pygmalion, Walter Legge, treated her like a slave, often publicly insulting her – and she loved it.
    The preciosity and artificiality of her singing can prove tiresome.
    Her Italian diction stunk.
    Her last name translates to ‘blackhead.’
    She survived tuberculosis.
    Her German diction was remarkable and she excelled at characterization.
    She strove for perfection and was very critical of herself musically.

    She gave master classes for free.
    Despite being an opera singer, she was quite beautiful.
    She went deaf in her old age.
