Britney hits back at the gossips

Britney Spears

Britney Spears has hit back at gossips by publishing a list of what she thinks are the 75 most ridiculous or offensive stories written about her in 2009.

Speaking on her website, the 28-year-old said she'd been the subject of more than 13,000 stories in 2009 and wanted to highlight the most absurd of them.

They include reports of an addiction to gardening and claims that her family was once so poor they ate squirrels.

"We ranked the ones we believe were the most ridiculous," said Britney.

"Either because they were factually inaccurate, because they reported the patently absurd, or because we believe they are simply offensive to the sensibilities."
