Michael tops chart

Michael Jackson has recently topped the charts again – but not for his music. The singer leads the list of the top 10 celebrities to generate the most news headlines in 2005. Coverage of the singer’s child abuse trial totted up more column inches around the world than any other showbiz story over the past twelve months. Michael beat a bevy of stars to the number one spot – including Eva Longoria, Britney Spears and Tom Cruise. Surprisingly, Jennifer Aniston – who endured a high profile divorce with Brad Pitt this year – only came tenth. [28 December 2005]
