Despite all her recent woes, Britney Spears is undeniably still one of the hottest stars on the planet. Her singles are frequent Billboard hits, and regardless of what kind of personal problems she's dealing with at any given moment, the pop powerhouse knows how to keep people talking (even if it's by shaving her head). Sure, not all her child-rearing decisions have been winners -- driving with unrestrained baby in lap to escape paparazzi comes to mind -- but that doesn't stop the press from snapping pics of her on a daily basis.
The press' penchant for Spears pictures was exaggerated to an almost absurd degree when she was expecting, however. If you were to believe everything the tabloids print, Spears has been carrying her third child for years, as rumors of a surprise pregnancy are announced on a nearly weekly basis. The situation has gotten so ridiculous, in fact, that Spears holds a mock press conference in her video for the song "I Wanna Go," in which she jokingly admits to being pregnant with Brad Pitt's quintuplets.
