This is bordering on the macabre … Newsweek has a cover story that looks at what life for Princess Diana is like at 50. Remember that she was killed by a drunk driver in 1997.
Looking back on the lives of celebrities who died young is not a new thing. Even creating an image to show what they might have looked like had they lived longer isn’t that unusual.
But creating that image and compositing it with a current photo of her son’s new bride is, well … darn creepy. As is having her clutching a piece of current technology (note the iPhone 4 in white).
And if you go so far as to read Tina Brown’s fictionalization, it’s not a very pretty picture of her.
I’m thinking my free subscription to Newsweek may be overpriced.
