Britney is the Most Controversial

Britney scored number one for Worst Celeb Dog Owner, she's leading the race for Train Wreck of the Year, and now Britney has landed another title. CNN's Showbiz Tonight has crowned Brit Most Controversial Celebrity of 2006. Interested in how Britney took the crown over Mel, Michael Richards, Tom and Paris? Here's more:

"Showbiz Tonight" set four specific criteria that a celebrity had to meet before deciding who was the most controversial of the year:

Does the mention of their very name spark a visceral reaction?
Which celebrity provoked the most continuous shock and outrage from their antics over the course of the entire year?
Which celebrity generated the most continued interest through the year?
And, finally, did their actions leave any lasting impact?

Britney has had a big year full of lots of controversy, but which headline surprised you the most? Wonder why Brit looks so pissed off in these pics. We're just glad she decided to cover herself up a bit with some clothes.
