6. Britney Spears
Stock Watch: Holding steady. Brit-Brit has had a roller-coaster year. “Femme Fatale” hit No. 1 and yielded two monster singles in “Hold It Against Me” and “Till the World Ends.” Her rocky personal life seemed to be leveling out, and fans were declaring a full return to form. She even smiled in concert! But there’s still something troubling about that “dead in the eyes” look she gives in interviews, the vacant lip-synching during performances. She has come a long way from that hideous 2007 VMA appearance, but there’s still a piece missing from the puzzle.
