Britney Spears has topped Yahoo's annual list of the Most-Searched Names on the Internet for 2007.
Britney Spears is at it again. The failed to come back pop singer who's been media darling with her many antics, including shaved her head bald, attacked a photographer's car with an umbrella, checked to rehab, fought with ex-husband Kevin Federline over the custody of their two sons, and released her first album in four years, has topped Yahoo's annual list of the Most-Searched Names on the Internet.
Spears, who until these days keeps drawing media attention, has topped the annual list of Yahoo for six of the past seven years, only losing out once, in 2004, to fellow partygoer Paris Hilton who's slipping in the search list until May when she was sentenced to 45 days in jail after violating her probation. The hotel heiress ends up at No. 3 on the list from No. 5 last year.
On Britney taking the top spot of the list, Vera Chan, senior editor at Yahoo! commented, "People do not know what to expect from her any more and the searches would spike every time she was back in the news. From when she shaved her head and rumors emerged from the rehab mill that she was calling herself the anti-Christ and shaved 666 on her scalp, there was constant tracking of this almost modern-day Greek tragedy happening in front of us."
Sexy singer Beyonce Knowles comes 5th on the list, just one place ahead of actress-singer Lindsay Lohan at No. 6, up from No. 10 last year. Singer Stacy Ferguson comes at No. 9 followed thereafter by movie beauty Jessica Alba who arrives at No. 10 on the list.
As of this year, Yahoo's annual list of the Most-Searched Names on the Internet also includes World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) (2nd), Japanese manga series Naruto (4th), free multi-player games RuneScape (7th) and Fantasy Football (8th).
