It’s funny how this Madonna performance on the VMAs has worsened the rivalry between Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera. If Britney and Christina hated each other, they would not have performed together. They obviously have some sort of friendship or mutual respect for each other. But their fans are blind to this.
In my opinion, the Christina Aguilera fans are jealous because Britney gets more publicity, and has sold more records. However, popularity in no way means quality. And the Britney Spears fans are aware of this. They are jealous because Christina clearly is a more talented singer than Britney and is more credible as an artist and song writer.
Britney has more hype surrounding her, which annoys the Christina fans, but Christina is viewed as the artist with more of an edge, a bit cooler, you might say.
I have to disagree with when the Christina fans say Britney has no talent. She is a very talented dancer, I can see that, but her voice is awful. She may be able to hold a tune but I can’t listen to more than ten seconds of a Britney Spears song without cringing. So respect to Britney for the dancing.
But I respect Christina Aguilera far more as she is a brilliant singer, and is not afraid to push boundaries. She is confident and daring, and has amazing artistic taste.
I think that fans of both artists should learn to accept the other artist, as Britney and Christina clearly accept each other, as displayed at the VMAs.
And can I just add, that a member of this site continually makes herself look immature with her unfounded homophobic comments toward Christina Aguilera.
