SPEAK ON IT: Rihanna Labeled The "New Princess Diana" By "The Sunday Times"

   photo STI17Y1GG001_Cover__324668k_zpsb5bbc275.jpg

The Sunday Times newspaper over in the UK has deemed Rihanna as the next Princess Diana.  For a few reasons.  Check out their article inside, and speak on it....

Inside yesterday's edition of The Sunday Times, they did a feature on their next Princess Di.  And apparently, they believe the parallels between pop diva Rihanna and the people's Princess are spot on.

The publication 'shopped a pic of Rihanna and Princess Di's face together for the cover, and offered up why this comparison can be a good and a bad thing.

In an excerpt, they explain the love of paparazzi stemming from anguish:

Like Diana, Rihanna has worryingly drifted into using photo ops to send messages of allure, defiance, or revenge in a turbulent relationship with an errant partner.....Diana’s anguished helplessness and isolation inside the royal family, with its stoical code of duty, led her to gravitate toward the ever-hovering paparazzi, whose global power as a media institution increased exponentially because of her popularity…

And their similar beginnings:

 Diana and Rihanna began as sensitive, wounded, but appealingly bubbly and good-natured provincial girls who slowly discovered their own photogenic virtuosity and began to conceptualize themselves as living sculpture for the lens. Both developed a false intimacy with photographers and the public and began to cannibalize themselves in their futile search for security in love. Diana, rebuffed, eventually accepted her exile. But Rihanna, in the classic syndrome of the battered woman, still pities and hopes to change and save her abuser...

Hmmm.  Rihanna ignored the possible negative side of the story and Instagrammed pics of the papers and how she came back to her hotel, drunk, and found them:

Just so happens I came home drunk to this in a pile of papers outside my hotel room! My lil Bajan behind, never thought these many people would even know my name, now it's next to Princess Diana's on the front of a newspaper! Life can be such a beautiful thing when you let it be #yourejealous :)

Okay, I MUST give props to

Okay, I MUST give props to Rihanna and her style muscles that she flexes soooo well. However, I can't stand the girl. It's odd though, when I read about her sending out her pictures on Instagram and Twitter and every place else, and then I look at all of the clever, witty, little Ri-isms that she has and I find myself smiling. Therefore, I have come to the conclusion that Rihanna is not the person who is doing all of the self p.r., she is not the person putting out all of the witty comments. And if that proves to be true, she is being sadly exploited and she is loving every minute of it. Her mama needs to come get her.

Right now Rih's wig been SNATCHED so any attention she gets is all GOOD to her, critiques have already RIPPED HER CLOTHING LINE APART! I finally saw "BATTLE SHIP on Direct TV this weekend and her acting was OK but the movie was a DISASTER! This girl will continue to make wrong moves, and you are so right it will not end well with Chris. I finally see what other's always said about her being a ATTENTION WHORE, she is +10! All I can say about her is that she cute,dresses nice, and picks catchy songs. The relationship w/ Chris is stupid and boring and most folks are over it now! The End.

Why did The Sunday Times

Why did The Sunday Times print this again? What was the point? Out of all entertainers Rihanna was the most similar? I guess. At least she didn't indulge in the negative and just took the comparison alone as a compliment
