Spears Tops Internet Searches List

Troubled singer Britney Spears has been named the 'most searched for' person on the Internet for the sixth time by web giant Yahoo. The 26-year-old has topped a list of celebrities who fascinated web users during 2007 after the press documented her recent troubles, which have included the custody battle with ex-husband Kevin Federline and the release of her first new album, Blackout, in four years. Vera Chan, Senior Editor at Yahoo, says, "People do not know what to expect from her (Spears) any more and the searches would spike every time she was back in the news. "From when she shaved her head and rumours 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." Spears has headed up the list for six of the past seven years, losing out only once in 2004 to her friend Paris Hilton. The socialite comes in at number three following her stint in jail earlier this year (07). The number two spot was held by World Wrestling Entertainment, after the death of Chris Benoit who killed his wife and son and then hanged himself in June (07). Beyonce Knowles came in at number five while Lindsay Lohan's brief spell in prison earned her the number six place, followed by singer Fergie at number nine and actress Jessica Alba at 10.
