Heads Up, Lilly Moscovitz From "The Princess Diaries" Is The Worst, And Here's Why

Your show is on every week, Lilly. There's only ONE Baker Beach Bash!!

We all love and adore The Princess Diaries, but a lot of people overlook one major factor in the movie. And that's that Lilly Moscovitz is the absolute WORST.

Walt Disney Pictures

1. FIRST of all, she does nothing when Mia gets disrespected.

Walt Disney Pictures

At the very start of the film, Mia says, "Good morning," to Principal Gupta — Lilly remains silent #rude — and Principal Gupta responds with "Good morning, Lilly...Lilly's friend." While Mia is getting straight up disrespected, Lilly is no help whatsoever — she just stands there, doing nothing.

2. She does not know how to listen when Mia needs to talk.

Walt Disney Pictures

Mia deadass got SAT ON! And what does Lilly have to say about it?? "Oh really." Like, can you not be a tad bit more supportive of your friend who just got treated as a La-Z-Boy? AND THEN, when Mia tries to talk about how upset she is, Lilly interrupts her to point out the "jerk and jerkette" sighting that is Josh and Lana. Like, damn, can they not kiss?

3. She's useless when Mia needs her the most.

Walt Disney Pictures

Mia is running out of the room, mid-barf, and Lilly just watches as she leaves. Instead of, IDK, chasing after your BFF to make sure she's OK???

4. She has no regard for Mia's time.

Walt Disney Pictures

Mia's just meeting with her long-lost grandmother after school for the first time in forever. A good friend would be asking her how she feels/if she's OK/telling her not to be nervous. Not Lilly, though. Oh, no. She needs Mia to help her get signatures for a petition for some birds. The birds won't all die tomorrow, Lilly. You can wait a day.

5. She has NO MANNERS WHATSOEVER.

Walt Disney Pictures

Lilly, as a child, were you not taught to say, "please" and, "thank you?" Instead, you tell this man that you think he looks like some movie character even though not one person asked you for your opinion on the matter. And, like, Shaft is black...so, where's the resemblance, Lilly? Just take the car ride.

6. She does not know the meaning of the word "empathy."

Walt Disney Pictures

Like. It doesn't matter how long it's been. HER DAD DIED. SHE CAN BE SAD FOR AS LONG AS SHE WANTS. Meanwhile, you're complaining because your dad wants to get dinner with you/spend time with you/have a relationship with you?? I'm sorry, but I truly do not understand where this girl gets her nerve.

7. She's not just rude to Mia! She's an equal opportunist when it comes to being a shitty friend.

Walt Disney Pictures

My man Jeremiah is just trying to do some magic and keep his hair lookin' fly. But no, Lilly has to shit on his magician dreams just because that's who she is. Looks like JerBear is keeping that quarter all to himself.

8. She takes ownership over things that aren't hers, AKA, she's also a shitty sister.

Walt Disney Pictures

Um, ex-squeeze-me. Did I miss something? Is this your limo, now? No? That's what I thought. You can't tell Mia who she can and can't give rides to. ESPECIALLY WHEN Y'ALL ARE GOING TO THE SAM DAMN PLACE. Like, WHAT?? I'm getting so upset.

9. She can't be happy for any-damn-body.

Walt Disney Pictures

Mia had one helluva glow-up. And instead of being like "Love your hair!" or, "Wow, those brows, slay queen," or, even just a "Wow, you look different, what happened?" she has to be all shady and call Mia an "A-crowd wannabe" with her new "Lana-'do." Maybe your friend just wanted some positive reinforcement after her life-changing makeover? But no, you gotta be all salty and bitter.

10. She gets caught up on the little things that don't even matter.

Walt Disney Pictures

You judging Mia for having this bag is worse than her having the bag. And it's A CUTE AF BAG. Like, sorry you're carrying around some weird-ass monkey for a bag, but it doesn't give you the right to shit on her fashion choices. Way to kick a girl when she's already down.

11. She can't let things go.

Walt Disney Pictures

She's spent the entire car ride shitting on Mia for no reason. Like, you had a girl in TEARS. LAY OFF DUDE. Kudos to Mia for this line, though. Show her who's boss.

12. She can't handle confrontation.

Walt Disney Pictures

Lilly spent this whole-ass car ride insulting Mia, and what happens when Mia dishes back? She immediately resorts to destruction of property. Like, that charm could have been expensive. I know how much Pandora goes for. If you can't handle the heat, Lilly, then don't insult your friends.

13. She's only concerned with her self-gain.

Walt Disney Pictures

No, "How are you handling this?" No, "Wow, here if you need to talk, friend." No, "Wow, I'm sorry about buggin' about the spotted owls when you were going through something so intense." These would all be appropriate responses to someone who just told you they found out they were a princess. Instead, Lilly's on the prowl, trying to gain from Mia's ordeal.

14. She can't encourage Mia to save her life.

Walt Disney Pictures

Mia's not sure if she can run a country, Lilly. She's not sure of a lot these days. What she IS sure of, though, is that she doesn't need her BFF doubting her skillz, but rather hyping her up.

15. She cannot read the room.

Walt Disney Pictures

Can't she not see that Mia and Michael are trying to have a ~moment~?? No, she has to come barging down the street, ready to rain on everyone's parade.

16. She can't be happy when good things happen to Mia.

Walt Disney Pictures

Even though Josh ended up being a turd-nugget, you know Mia has been crushing on him for FOREVER! A normal person would understand if your friend had to cancel on your show — which, she was doing as a FAVOR — because her crush asked her to the last dance of the year. Yes, Mia should have given her a heads-up that she couldn't make it, BUT, your show is on every week, Lilly. There's only ONE Baker Beach Bash!!

17. SHE LITERALLY DOESN'T CARE THAT HER FRIEND WAS LOW-KEY MISSING FROM HER OWN BALL.

Walt Disney Pictures

A normal BFF would be concerned when their best friend doesn't show up to a party that one, they invited you to, and two, they're supposed to make a huge announcement at. No call to Mia, no checking in with her mom or grandma or Joe. She just stood there, useless. But then again, that's Lilly's M.O.

P.S. Look who has the "Lana-'do" now, huh??

All in all, Lilly sucks as a friend, sister and overall person.

Walt Disney Pictures

And DON'T EVEN get me started on Lilly in the sequel.
