After a crazy year of Hollywood rumors and gossip, Kidzworld sits down to pick the juiciest celebrity scandals of 2004 - check them out!

Britney Gets Hitched

Britney Spears' first marriage, which only lasted 55 hours, ended in annulment. She went for it one more time by marrying her backup dancer, Kevin Federline, in September at a backyard wedding and reception that consisted of chicken fingers, ribs and a boombox. Shortly after, the newlyweds had to clear up rumors that their marriage was a sham and that Britney may be pregnant. We still haven't heard any news on whether she's preggers, but she's taken on step-mom duties to Kevin's two kids.

Mary-Kate Battles Eating Disorder

After months of denying rumors of anorexia, Mary-Kate Olsen checked into a treatment center for an eating disorder. Her drastic weight loss had attracted huge media attention while she and twin sis, Ashley, were promoting New York Minute, receiving a Hollywood Walk of Fame star and graduating from high school. MK blamed her weight loss on the stress of getting into university as well as the pressures to look perfect under the spotlight - she even poked fun of her low weight when the twins appeared on SNL. MK was discharged after six weeks in the clinic, but continues to seek counseling from an eating coach while she attends NYU.

Lindsay's Limelight

One of the biggest names this year was Lindsay Lohan. Rising to Hollywood fame after hits like Freaky Friday and Mean Girls, the redheaded teen queen quickly became a media target and battled tons of rumors, the biggest one being that she had gotten a boob job, which she continues to deny. She also defended her image when the media labelled her a party girl who went clubbing every night. She most recently made the headlines for hooking up with hunky Colin Farrell shortly after being dumped by Wilmer Valderrama, who plays Fez on That '70s Show.

Janet's Wardrobe Malfunction

Janet Jackson's Super Bowl spectacle gave birth to the term, "wardrobe malfunction." While performing Rock Your Body with Justin Timberlake during the half-time show, Justin reached up to rip off the breastplate of Janet's costume, exposing her right boob on national TV! Janet ran off the stage, but later apologized, saying she had problems with her wardrobe.

Ashlee Lip Synchs on SNL
Ashlee Simpson was caught lip synching during her performance on SNL in October. She was all set to debut her second single, Autobiography, when the track, Pieces Of Me, which she had "sung" earlier, began to play. After a few seconds, she did a silly jig before dancing off the stage while her band kept on playing. Ashlee blamed the incident on a severe case of acid reflux, and said her band played the wrong song. Riiiiight.

    Just so you know, it's a show created by the legendary minds of Craig McCracken and Lauren Faust! The basic plot is about a furry, orange alien named, you guessed it, Wander and his best Zbornak buddy, Sylvia. Sometimes, they run into the evil and insecure tyrant, Lord Hater, or the flirty shark- headed YA Emperor Awesome. Wander and Sylvia are often seen exploring the universe and meeting new friends.
