Forbes Magazine has just released its list of the 10 most overexposed celebrities, and not surprisingly, Paris Hilton sits atop that list. Once the tabloid it girl, Paris is now regarded as little more than filler when its a slow gossip day. She can be counted on for doing or saying something stupid, but other than that, nobody really cares about her anymore. Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan are close behind on the list.
According to studies by Encino, Calif.-based E-Poll Market Research, which provides appeal rankings for more than 3,000 celebrities, 70% of the U.S. population would use the term overexposed to describe Paris Hilton, up slightly from a year earlier. To put that in perspective, most celebrities average between 3% and 7% on the E-Poll index during the peak of their careers.
Consider pop tart Britney Spears, whose every move from club-hopping to head-shaving has grabbed gobs of tabloid ink. But rather than earn her adoration, the recent media onslaught has resulted in eye rolls. And worse.
Heres the top 10:
1) Paris Hilton
2) Britney Spears
3) Lindsay Lohan
4) Pamela Anderson/Nicole Richie (tie)
6) Mary Kate Olsen
7) Kim Kardashian
8) Tom Cruise/Heidi Montag/Donald ***** (tie)
9) Michael Jackson
10) Spencer Pratt
