There seems to be a problem with people making incorrect comparisons between artists. Christina Aguilera, who is the most fabulous singer I have ever heard, should be compared with the likes of Kelly Clarkson, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, the other powerhouse vocals. Britney Spears, who is the most fabulous entertainer I have ever seen, should be compared with other performers such as Janet Jackson, Mandy Moore, Willa Ford.
It’s unfair to compare apples and oranges and try to determine who is better. Christina is at the top of her respective genre, and Britney is at the top of hers. These two women were friends for a long time and may still be. If they can get along and not obsess over which of them is better, then surely we should have the same attitude and compare our fandoms with their CORRECT market competitors.
You wouldn’t compare Mark Maguire with Michael Jordan would you?
