Wednesday’s Lycos 50 feature asks “Is the Britney era over?” after the singer has dropped to the #15 spot on the search query list, the lowest she’s been excluding the immediate post 9-11 period and behind rival Christina Aguilera, currently at #9. Still, in the past month, her searches have actually risen in total. Aaron Schatz writes, “After Christmas, when the holiday searches are gone, Britney may be back in the top ten. But she certainly is no longer at quite the level of popularity she has enjoyed for the past three years. Maybe she should try getting naked — hey, it’s working for Christina.” The complete story at 50.lycos.com has since been removed.
