Britney's Wild Year

Two weddings, one canceled tour and all those T-shirts – take a peek inside Spears's tumultuous 2004. By Marla Lehner


During her time off from working, Britney often displayed a more slovenly side in 2004 (such as here, in a Malibu parking lot in August). Britney's mom scolded the press for publishing unflattering pictures and defended her daughter: "The doctor's orders are for her to wear Uggs or tennis shoes, and it's just too hot for that," she wrote in a statement on Britney's Web site. "Sometimes it just feels good to go barefoot in this heat and give her feet a rest."
