Britney Spears has been given an undesirable honour - as the winner of the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS' annual Tacky Taste Awards.

The TOXIC singer won the poll, voted on by readers, for her marriages to Jason Alexander and Kevin Federline.

One reader comments, "Between walking around gas station bathrooms with no shoes, guzzling RED BULL all day and stealing a pregnant woman's boyfriend, she defines the word 'tacky'."

Spears' placement on the poll put her ahead of Janet Jackson for her "wardrobe malfunction" at the Super Bowl, and last year's (03) winner PARIS HILTON, who a reader has dubbed "completely useless".

The full top 10 is as follows:

1. BRITNEY SPEARS

2. JANET JACKSON

3. Paris Hilton

4. Ashlee Simpson

5. Eminem

6. Michael Jackson

7. Courtney Love

8. Justin Timberlake

9. Anna Nicole Smith

10. Hilary Duff
