As a result of those bad things in her life, Spears has been named the Most Annoying People of 2006.

In a poll conducted by Star magazine on the 50 Most Annoying People of 2006, Spears captures the crown. "Brit was quite the headline maker this year! But Brit doesn't top our list because of her dubious child-care techniques or her uber annoying Matt Lauer interview. Nope. The icing on the cake was her post K-Fed decision to make Paris Hilton her BFF and party without panties with such a vengeance that even Lindsay was jealous!", the publication write on Spears.

A shocking report has come from Disney watcher Jim Hill Media concerning Walt Disney Feature Animation's new project of "American Dog (aka Bolt)." The site reveals that the studio's execs John Lasseter and Ed Catmull have both fixed their mind to pull director Chris Sanders off of the flick, which was slated for a summer 2008 release.

The reason behind the decision is said to be due to the pair's conclusion to bring WDFA back to its roots as a "traditional" animation company exclusively which was against Sanders' intention to develop "Dog" as a CG animated film. Hill observed that even though the twosome's plan has not yet been "entirely embraced" by Disney CEO Robert Iger, Sanders' version of the flick has positively been put to sleep as a consequence.
