I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'divine females get some' is the definition.
I can't tell whether this defines the answer.

'you in a terrible mess' is the wordplay.
'you' becomes 'u' (I've seen this in other clues).
'in' is an insertion indicator.
'a terrible' indicates an anagram.
'mess' anagrammed gives 'mses'.
'u' put within 'mses' is 'MUSES'.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for muses that I've seen before include "Contemplates", "Thinks", "Nine goddesses of the liberal arts", "Nine sister goddesses presiding over the arts", "Clio, Euterpe, Terpsichore etc".)

I've seen this clue in Evening Standard.
