Britney Spears and a snake.

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the most ultimate gay icon of them all? According to a poll conducted by the Orange County Equality Project, the honor goes to Britney Spears. The "Baby One More Time" singer (it's the only one I know, I'm straight) won 31% of the vote. Madonna was close behind with 25%, and a poll spokesperson even added a caveat by saying that the "Material Girl" (again, straight) will always be the "greatest" gay icon.

In third and fourth place were Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, which means that, for some reason, only straight female pop singers are allowed to be "ultimate gay icons."
