2. Britney Spears: When she was photographed for the cover of Esquire magazine in November 2003, Britney Spears was channeling an iconic Marilyn image. Ready for some more odd similarities and connections?
-- Britney's middle name is Jean, much like Marilyn's real name was Norma Jeane.
-- In the music video for her song "Lucky," Brit is dressed up to look just like Marilyn.
-- Britney demands that a collection of Marilyn Monroe DVDs be on-hand in all her hotel rooms.
-- Brit visits Marilyn's grave regularly and wants to be buried in the same cemetery.
We could go on, but it's pretty clear she's obsessed -- and we're a little creeped-out.
