Honorable Mention: Britney Spears
During her interview with Matt Lauer this year, Spears said she just wants to live a normal life and wishes the media would leave her alone. From her dubious child-care techniques to her panty-less party with new BFF, Paris Hilton, nobody knows how to garner press attention better than Spears. There’s no denying it, there’s just something about Spears that piques the public’s interest. Proof of concept: She topped the list of the most frequently searched topics on Internet search engines this year.
