Bobby Brown and Whitney Houston have been named the year’s tackiest couple. The singers were crowned the most tasteless celebrity pair by an American magazine.
Second in the poll were Hollywood stars Katie Holmes and fiance Tom Cruise.
And pop star Britney Spears and her dancer husband Kevin Federline came in third in the Star magazine list. The magazine said self-confessed drug abusers Whitney and husband Bobby Brown deserved the award for airing too much dirty laundry in public.
They said: “Thanks to their reality show, viewers were introduced to a whole new level of marital crudeness. “Whitney and Bobby made viewers cringe as she talked about how he helped her overcome constipation.” Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes were voted second for their “tornado” romance.
The magazine said: “They met, got engaged, and got pregnant in less than six months.” And new mum Britney Spears and dancer husband Kevin Federline were nominated for their lack of taste.
One reader commented: “She’s a has-been and he’s a never was.”
The magazine quizzed more than 35,000 readers in its latest issue, out now.
On-off British couple Jude Law and Sienna Miller also make the list at fifth.
A reader said: “The couple who cheat together, stay together.
“They have such low standards.”
