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


In the wee hours of Jan. 3, after watching The Texas Chainsaw Massacre in their $10,000-a-night suite at the Palms Casino Hotel in Las Vegas, Britney and her childhood pal Jason Allen Alexander tied the knot at A Little White Wedding Chapel. The marriage, which was annulled on Jan. 5, lasted 55 hours. "That thing was a total ugh," Britney told PEOPLE later. "I was not in love at all. It was seriously my friend from home and we got crazy in Vegas."
