You were there through the bad driving, the head-shaving, and the Criss Angel thing. It’s been a tough year for our girl. No one could have imagined a mere 12 months ago that she’d create such glorious new nonsense every week. Some of the craziness escapes you? Come back every day: We’re counting down the events that made up the Year in Britney.
January 1 ? Down for the Count ? Brit kicked off 2007 with a bang…on her head. After hosting two countdowns at the PURE nightclub in Las Vegas, Brit was rumored to have gone into “a dead faint and just fell right to the floor.” Rumors that she had to be dragged out were shooed away by then manager Larry Rudolph who said that the singer was “just tired and falling sleep.” Hopefully she got some rest that night: she had a very busy year ahead of her.

January 2 ? New Year’s Resolution ? She revealed to Extra TV that her New Year’s Resolution was to “stop biting my fingernails” and to “just to take care of me more, I think.” Fair enough about the former, but as for her latter resolution, she must have been referring to self-medication. I think. [ExtraTV.com]
January 5 ? Britney Addresses the Masses ? She hasn’t always been the most cuddly of pop stars, but Brit did reach out to her admirers via her official website. Like Eva Peron with exposed genitalia, she proclaimed from her keyboard balcony that, “I’ve been able to sit down and think about where I want to go with myself as an entertainer with absolutely no strings attached.” Like in life, where she wanted to go with herself as an entertainer would turn out to be extremely simple: on a bender.

January 9 ? Brit’s Clothes Get Shredded ? The singer soon found herself in the only place more familiar than a puddle of vomit: atop Mr. Blackwell’s annual worst-dressed list. She wasn’t so much an easy target as she was a target that would knock you down, steal your arrow, and plunge it through herself. See the pic to the left, if your eyes can handle it. [Boston.com]
