Britney Spears voted ultimate gay icon

Britney Spears has emerged as the greatest gay icon of all time in a new poll.

The Hit Me Baby hitmaker regained the top slot by toppling US President Barack Obama and veteran performer Cher to garner 31 per cent of the vote in the Orange County Equality Project’s poll.

Madonna came second with 25 per cent of the vote claiming it to be a close call between the two superstars to find the quintessential gay icon, reported Contactmusic.

"When Madonna puts out a new album, she will be on top again. Madonna is the greatest icon the gay community has ever had," the Equality Project’s Joel Waddell said.

Pop diva Lady Gaga, famous for her onstage antics was voted in third with 22 per cent, while Firework hitmaker Katy Perry received 12 per cent votes.(PTI)
