Yep, this is really Newsweek's latest cover image: The late Princess Diana strolling along on a lovely afternoon, having what appears to be a lively conversation with her daughter-in-law, Kate Middleton.

Totally normal stuff, except that it's been 14 years since Diana passed away so Newsweek needed to resort to Photoshop in order to resurrect her.

And that's not all...

The fake Diana has an iPhone! Okay, seriously, what is going on here?!
This freaky fan fiction comes courtesy of Newsweek's editor-in-chief (and Diana biographer) Tina Brown, who really went all out to commemorate the Princess of Wales' fiftieth birthday.

There's even a mock-up of what Diana's Facebook page may have looked like that really makes you go "wait, what?!"

As you can see, Diana seems to have a thing for Colin Firth movies (really, who doesn't?), The Good Wife (so relatable!) and is even Facebook friends with Camilla Parker-Bowles (Prince Charles "likes" this, of course). The piece also speculates that Diana would totally be down for some chin Botox, but might have had a tough time sharing the spotlight with Kate.

Between the superficial description of what Diana would have been like at 50 years old and the insane Photoshop aging, it's a little too much ridiculousness to take in all at once.

There's bad taste and then there's this mess. Tell us what you think: is it just creepy or the creepiest?!
