This Just In: Britney Spears is Hot!

by at . Comments

Well, at least in terms of Internet traffic.

Britney Spears calculated trajectory to mega-fame went off the rails this year, generating tremendous web interest. For this reason, she was the most commonly searched for "musician" this year, beating out Beyonce, according to Yahoo!

Perhaps Britney could have learned something from Stacy Ferguson, a.k.a. Fergie (#3), who suffered her personal downfalls in relative obscurity first before hitting it big and handling herself well on the confessional circuit later.

Here's the full Yahoo! Top Ten:

  1. Britney Spears (we know she has not looked anything like this in many moons, but she's still technically a singer)
  2. Beyonce Knowles
  3. Stacy "Fergie" Ferguson
  4. Akon
  5. Avril Lavigne
  6. Hilary Duff
  7. Hannah Montana
  8. Shakira
  9. Chris Brown
  10. Ciara

You'll notice that only two men - Akon and Chris Brown - made the list, as did somebody's alter ego. That's right, Hannah Montana is really a character played by Miley Cyrus.

While Miley Cyrus does have her own sizable search recognizance (#23), Hannah Montana hysteria proved far more relentless to browsers. It's also nice to see Hilary Duff up there as well. Who doesn't love Hilary Duff, honestly?
