Britney tops redundant list of overexposed
Which celebs are you most sick of hearing about, Britney Spears or Angelina Jolie? Well, Brit-Brit topped USA Today’s 2008 “Celebrity Heat Index” for the second year in a row, a ranking that measures exposure in print and online entertainment news outlets, but not, surprisingly, irritation levels.
Spears was also No. 1 in 2007, but this year’s two stints in psychiatric wards helped her pull out a repeat “victory.”
The Brangelina love triangle made up Nos. 2, 3 and 4. Angelina Jolie — who welcomed twins Knox and Viv in July — came in second place in the list. Her partner Brad Pitt came in fourth — behind ex-wife Jennifer Aniston. Others in the top 10 include Jamie Lynn Spears and Tom Cruise. Meanwhile a certain celebutard heiress we refuse to name and Anna Nicole Smith were cut this year, so maybe it wasn't such a bad year after all.
