Rosie O’Donnell compares Britney to Princess Di

January 15th, 2008 // 109 Comments

Rosie O’Donnell wrote the following lengthy diatribe on her blog comparing Britney to Princess Diana:

I remember the tunnel as it appeared on the news, lit by headlights, flashlights, red lights. Between the cement tall pillars was a heap of twisted metal. I saw it then, and I can see it now. Diana dead.

She will be trying to get away, but they will chase her, just as they chased her into that church yesterday. There were dozens of them, jostling their way into sanctuary, elbowing past each other, just to creep closer to her. Even her last-minute, folded-hand prayers can’t be kept sacred. There can be no silent moments in a crowd; no silence, and no secrets.

All this fresh, painful frailty costs her so much, but it lines their pockets very well. A kings ransom was paid for those tabloid-ready cheap shots of her with messy hair, tear-soaked eyes, and the half-smile of a desperate baby girl.
“I’m scared,” she told them yesterday, when they later mobbed her at court. “Move back,” she said. “I’m scared. Stop it. Stop it. I want to get back in the car. Just stop it. Let me get in the car, please.”
Sometimes it really is too much. Internal wires cross. Anxiety hits. Panic sets in the heart. Dread. Fear.
But she asked for it, she’s a public figure.
At eight years old, she bravely stood before a microphone. By 17, she had sold 25 million records. Where were the sidewalk-skinned knees, the chalk stained hands, the monkey bars, the passed notes? A Disney set is not a childhood, no matter how many bright colors they use, or how cheerful the script.
Not a girl, barely even a woman yet, they chased her. A mob of stalkers for whom no stalking laws have been written. Smother. Crush. Flash. Photo Credit. Even Dr. “Get Real” Phil got in on the action. Unreal.
83 million albums sold so far. How many pictures?
The tunnel is crowded now. There are only inches of separation between vulnerability and disaster.

Britney Spears and Princess Di really are alike. Remember when Britney went to all those countries on humanitarian missions? Or that time Princess Di flashed her vagina to the paparazzi? Maybe Britney is a clone of Diana. That would explain the British accent. And why she keeps flashing her nipples… My God, Rosie’s right! Get Scotland Yard on the phone. Rosie O’Donnell’s ridiculous amount of free time has done it again. Amazing. I bet she sits at home smoking a pipe and looking into a magnifying glass.

    as one person!

  2. Rick

    This is a perfect Superficial story – most of the female commenters look like Rosie and dress and act like Britney.

  3. WhoTheFuckCares

    Why the hell would anyone read Rosie ‘Queen of the Fatass-Dikes’ O’Donnell’s Blog anyway?

  4. So when is Britney going to crash into the pillar? How the hell do you compare Princess Diana to this trailer trash Ho??

  5. patty cake

    Oh my god. This is the biggest joke ever. Rosie is just as delusional as Brit Brit

  6. commish

    Just as the sun will always rise in the east and set in the west, Rosie is consistently a big bowl of bat-shit crazy.

  7. woodhorse

    Some poster reminded us all that Jesus said words hurt and here’s the proof: prose from Rosie O’Donnell. Although the pain is not nearly as blinding as her poetry (very loose description), reading her comments pretty much ruins the rest of the week.

    The sap is running from Rosie’s vagina she wants Britney so bad. If Britney would just service the fat granola muff, maybe she would shut it.

  8. Binky

    I think Rosie’s way off base here. I’ve heard Diana could sing and dance.

  9. edamame

    Ro…go hang upside-down in your harness, and put a sock in your piehole!
    You are a fucking idiot.

  10. D. Richards (Grip.)

    ‘Sidewalk skinned-knees’? Rosie wishes Britney would have spent her childhood blowing tricks? On a sidewalk?

    I guess so.

  11. Webster

    Rosie needs to separate what she thinks is caring and just plain perving. Stop it Rosie; I see right through your “concern.” Britney will never give you a piece, unless that is you are going to use it to give her more attention.

    All we need is for this stupid cooze to think she’s Marilyn or Di, or even Grace Kelly. STOP IT.

  12. RENEE...

    That fat ass Rosie just has a crush on Britney; she always has and she always will. I saw her do an interview w/ her when she was like 17 years old and just getting famous and you could see Rosie just salivating…it was sickening, really. And to compare Princess Diana to Britney? That is a disgrace! I was no big fan of Diana or anything, but I truly believe Diana wanted to be left alone and didn’t enjoy all the attention. And she did try to do good in the world. Britney is a self indulgent idiot (albeit a mentally sick one) and can’t even do any good for her own children, let alone anyone else in the world (okay, herself probably included). But Britney is also an adult, so I’m sick of people saying poor baby Britney. She is an adult! An adult with her own children that she is destroying. The least she could do is keep her legs closed and stay home once in a blue moon. But she can’t…because she LOVES the attention and can’t live w/o it. Otherwise she wouldn’t do the things she does. And if she really can’t stand all the attention, then move the fuck out of Hollywood already! Your careers over anyways! sheeesh!

    anybody else notice the receding hairline?

    #8. ‘Sap’? You digust me.

  15. Britney isn’t going to die in a car crash. I say she will overdose on Mother’s day.

  16. PunkA

    Rosie is just fantasizing about Britney being dead. That way, she will have the chalupa market cornered. The fat cow.

  17. FCS

    So with Rosies reasoning I guess that makes K-Fed Prince Charles..

  18. p0nk

    in that case we are soon to be honored with yet another Elton John rendition of “Cheetos Give Me Wind”

  19. Reggie Bush

    bullshit Princess Diana an English aristocrat with class and a white trash slut who flashes her vajojo and tits every day, yeah a lot in common.

  20. c

    It’s funny because a friend of mine actually said this the other day. it’s not that britney is a humanitarian but it’s like the pap is killing britney just like they did diana. it’s sad but we all enable it including myself because we all love to see it happen.

  21. Italian Stallion

    @9 LOL….

  22. Spanky

    Question:

    How bad does Britney actually smell at this point?I mean the hair alone probably makes Amy Winehouse smell like a fucking gardenia plantation by comparison. Plus, past experiences have taught me that her boyfriend’s ethnicity doesn’t excatly lend itself to pleasant aromas. That car probably had to be burned afterwards.

  23. RosiesVaginaSap

    #22 yes I would love to see a pap kill Britney. With something blunt preferably.

    and #8 thanks for the cool handle.

  24. #1 hater

    I don’t know…..I think Tara Reid is more like Lady Di….. or maybe Paris Hilton…..

  25. Gerald_Tarrant

    Damn typos. The headline should read “Rosie O’Donnell compares Britney to a Cheeseburger.” That fat dyke wants to eat them both.

  26. pointandlaugh

    Rosie: you are no Hemmingway. Jebus tapdancing christ. What a bizarre writing style. HAI. LETS. PUT. PERIODS. EVERYWHERE. ooooooo. artsy.

  27. Elk

    I don’t know about you guys, but I’m not going to waste my time reading anything Rosie O’Donnell wrote.

  28. edamame

    Why not compare Jamie Lynn to the virgin Mary?!
    I guess Brit’s boyfriend Adnan is the Dodi in this situation?

  29. Alicia

    My god, how could this get any worse. I don’t mean Britney – that’s merely the bad behavior of one person (Britney), and there certainly are lots of parents out there who are worse (visit a domestic violence shelter sometime). I’m referring to the millions of dollars and hundreds of hours being spent to document her downfall so that thousands of people can point and laugh. There’s this awe-inspiring human achievement – global communication, linking people all across the world for the first time in history – and Americans use it for…this. Sad. But typical.

  30. Jade

    Rosie is dumb. I just have no other words.. dumb describes her perfectly.

    Actually, I think I respect Britney more than Rosie, and I don’t respect Britney at all.

  31. jrz

    Okay, you can stop now Rosie…..she ain’t gonna fuck you and she has no idea who Princess Di is.

  32. TS

    #7 Petra,
    Nobody needs to save this bumb bitch. She just needs to save herself. She can do that by NOT acting like a retarded ingrate all the time. She can start by just kicking it at home for a change like a notmal human being. She should just hang ot with her kids. Oh, wait, that dumb bitch lost that privelege. She should just end it.

  33. missJ

    All of you are so quick to criticize….Rosie isn’t comparing Britney to Diana as much as she’s pointing out how destructive the paparazzi / media can be. You people need to stop being so mean! Sure, Rosie is a lesbian but that doesn’t mean she wants to have sex with every woman she sees….I CERTAINLY don’t want to sleep with every man I see…(although that homeless guy on the bus yesterday did have some admirable qualities…lol)

  34. BunnyButt

    Gosh, Rosie’s so deep – truly THE great philosopher of our times!

  35. Jade

    #34.. of course. But you fail to see the difference: Princess Di did not invite the paps into her daily life, screw them, and make friends with them. Princess Di was trying to do her own thing. Britney however has no friends and is getting cozy and friendly (and now sexual) with her paps. She goes out to be with them and get attention from them. So I hope you understand that Di never invited any of this, and Britney has invited it with open, desperate arms.

  36. @34 missJ – Rosie is a piece of work. Princess Diana did not want or ask for the Pap to follow her around everywhere she went. On the other hand Britney does. She is dating one of them, she call them to let them know where she is going, and she makes sure she goes to very public places all day long so they can take pictures of her taking a pee at Starbucks.
    I don’t think Rosie want to have sex with every women she sees, I think she want to eat them and not in a sexual way. The fat pig is hungy. .

  37. edamame

    I’m surprised that church didn’t just crumble to the ground when Britney showed up! Something wicked this way comes!
    And that hideous dress makes her look like The Bride of SKANKENSTEIN! Her hairline is definitely recedeing….she looks like the wax version of herself.
    And Alicia….Americans didn’t invent tabloids. Why are you here, if not to revel in the witty remarks by the hilarious folks here? Yeah, yeah, yeah….we could all be discussing the fate of those four little kids thrown off a bridge by their own father, or the current plight of the Kenyan refugees….but, why not have a few laughs at the expense of the celebutards who so obviously crave the attention?

  38. TS

    #35, it’s incredible that you take this site, and the comments on it, so seriously…Don’t be stupid.

  39. TS

    I was only referring to Britney. Nothing I said pertained to Di. You hit the nail right on the head.

  40. Matthew

    Rosie’s right. The paps pursued Princess Di until they killed her, and they’re trying to do the same with Britney. And all of you are egging them on. If you weren’t addicted to indulging your prurient urges using internet and TV, none of this would be happening. The funniest part is when somebody accuses THEM (celebs) of coarsening the culture. That’s only 180 degrees off target.

  41. Hey there Britney Lovers!!! Listen up! I honestly think that she is mentally unstable. I know, I know…you are all saying “DUH!” in your head right now, but I kind of feel terrible for her. Here is why. we all know that she was a success at one point of her life. She got so tied with the media and the pappoz that her own life slipped away from her, right from under her nose. Let’s see all the factos: she came on to the scene as a child and was a mega star by 17. At 17, I was a very indecisive kid. I didn’t know if I wanted to smoke pot, date boys, go out late to clubs, go away on long weekends with friends, etc. To her, none of those things were possible because her life was planned out for her. She had tours, signings, releasing of this, releasing of that, and so on we can go for pages. She was a little girl who had her parents make all the decision for her. They directed what she could do, with her management team of course. But it was all for the money. When all you see in someone is dollar bills, it becomes really hard to naturally care for that person’s well being if it means losing that green. It’s hard for me, someone who has never met Britney, to make judgments on what happened, but I can only assume based on the facts that I do have. I think Britney realized along the way of her stardom that she is perceived by her closest confidants as a huge money-making machine. She lost her trust for all. I am not trying to justify her behavior on certain occasion at all, I do agree that she’s a bit far-fetched, but the underlying truth is she didn’t get to her current mental stage totally by herself. Can you, yes YOU, imagine what it is like to get up and realize that you ran out of milk and you have to run out to get some, but the second you step outside there are over 100 cameras flashing in your face and you can’t even see where you are walking because you are in the middle of a money-driven crowd…and guess what…you are the bulls eye! Not very comforting, is it?!

    I wouldn’t exactly compare her and her behavior to Princess Di, but the obsessive attention she is receiving from the nutso pappoz does send dejavu through me. They don’t let her eat, shit, breathe, shop, live for christ’s sake! I mean, given the girl feeds off of them, but what else is she supposed to do? I believe that she has found comfort with them. She is thinking that her family and everyone who she trusted at one point, are against her and want only money from her. Again, “DUH, and what do the pappoz want?!” But they do everything for her, they are there through everything she does (willingly or not), give her attention, tell her she’s beautiful, fix her flat tires, pump gas for her…I mean really…who wouldn’t love that? But she is paying a HIGH price for it. Her children’s lives. I am not so much sold on Kevin being a great father and being in this for the kids, not the money. I do, however, know that I feel a lot worst for the kids than I do for anyone. They are just fucking kids! They didn’t ask to be born into this madness. I believe in Britney 100%, but her erratic behavior is causing her children a life with their mother. I don’t know why she does certain things, that are quite obvious to all to be irresponsible, but I do know she’s hurting her kids more than herself.

    She is being stripped of everything, and believe me, she is at fault, but these fucking pappoz are making her life a living hell. As I said before, she feeds into it, but at this point, she simply doesn’t trust anyone. It is difficult to suffer from Bipolar Disorder, especially if no medication is used. Britney needs one good influence in her life because at the rate that she is going at right now, her future does not look guaranteed, AT ALL!

  42. Simple Truth

    You built her up and now you’re tearing her down.

    At least admit it.

    Rosie needs to get a life and stay out of other peoples.

    So she was scared of the paps when she had her custody hearing but they don’t scare her when she goes to Starbucks 5 times a day???

  45. Tim

    I for one truly respect the comments made by people who condemn Britney for not being a good mother, then go on to mention that she’s also fat, ugly, retarded, and a hick. You are all great parents and great people.

  46. Gerald_Tarrant

    Jesus Jose and Julio. Anya, can ya give me the cliff notes version of that. Thanks.

  47. Pancho

    The underlying motivation for tearing down Britney: an insecure 15-year-old inner teen girl who desperately wants to say (even years later), “see? she’s not so hot!” to all the guys who are ignoring her.

  48. Mr. Gerald_Tarrant…..cliff notes……pappoz are big, fat, money-hungry dicks; Britney is crying for attention, which she finds within her NUTSO PaPPOZ; and is this really about Britney or about how her kids are going to be mentally unstable when they get older?!
