Britney – Headliner Of The Year

Pop singer Britney Spears made headlines beginning in early January, when she "took a joke too far" and married childhood friend Jason Allen Alexander in Las Vegas. Those nuptials were annulled two days later, but she married dancer Kevin Federline in September. Spears embarked on a tour in March, canceling a few dates along the way due to a knee injury. Later, she suffered what was described in a press release as a "severe leg injury" while filming a video; in June she cited the injury as the reason for canceling a planned summer tour. She released a new best-of album in November, and--perhaps because she made too much news in 2004 for even her own tastes--Spears announced via her website that she's going to remain on an indefinite hiatus. thanks britneychile.com
