Get ready to throw off your tiaras in the ultimate battle between Disney princesses Cinderella (Sarah Michelle Gellar) and Belle (Whitney Avalon) from "Beauty and the Beast."

In "Cinderella vs. Belle: Princess Rap Battle," we see the dueling duo rap insults about each other's outfits, boyfriends and fairy godmothers and even toss in a few digs at each others' ideas of romance.

Belle: "Your tale as old as time sets us back 50 years. Do your chores, clean the floors 'til a man just appears."

Cinderella: "I'm the American dream with a fairy-tale wedding. You've got teapots for friends and I think your man's shedding."

Fans already know Gellar can sing, thanks to the all-musical episode of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" called "Once More With Feeling," but her rapping skills are pretty fly for a princess.

Kudos to Cinderella for referring to the original Brothers Grimm tale when her stepsisters cut off their own toes to fit into her magical glass slipper. And now that Cindy mentioned Stockholm Syndrome, we're looking at "Beauty and the Beast" in a whole new light.

Yet even though Cinderella raps that she saved Disney Studios -- "Disney built an empire on these tiny glass shoes. Without me there's no you!" -- Belle points out she's the one with the Oscars.

"If you're so adored where's your Academy Award?" raps Belle.

And while Cinderella is a classic tale, leave it to Belle to bring down the house with the last lyric: "It's what's inside that counts, not the size of your feet."

Who do you think won the battle?
