USA Today Music Critic Backs Britney Spears Over J.Lo

USA Today music writer Edna Gundersen was asked about why seems to get more respect musically than , even though “musically, creatively, vocally, lyrically on the same level.” Gundersen responded, “Same level? I’d wager that Britney has more musical savvy, a broader vocal range and a nicer singing voice by far. I have no idea how J.Lo got this far in the music industry with so little talent. I think she just gets a lot more attention because she’s a crazy media hound and plays out her soap-opera life for the cameras and tabloids.” Check out the entire transcript here.

No Bennifer Questions For Jennifer Lopez

October 5, 2003 – The New York Post reports Jennifer and Ben Affleck are trying to repair their romance, but she isn’t going to be talking about it when she heads up to the Big Apple. “Jennifer has to come to New York on October 29th to hawk her new fragrance, Still, to all of these international editors,” a source explained. “But all the editors had to sign releases that they would not ask her anything about Ben.” Lopez and Affleck have left Savannah and are currently hiding out in Miami.

    Glad to see someone can admit that Britney does have some talent. If anyone is talent-less is J.Lo

    For once I agree.. Britney is way ahead of J.Lo musically. J.Lo sucks so bad.. she can HARDLY carry a tune! sorry Jennifer.. slurred speech doesn’t count as singing.. and now even her songs suck. I admit.. I USED to get down to a lil “waiting for tonight” or “let’s get loud” but now she’s bombing with “jenny from the block” and that crap she did with LL cool J.. I’d much rather listen to Britney than J.Lo

    I think J. Lo gets attention because she does more than just sing, she is more respected in her acting but ventured out to do the music thing that she likes to do as well….Yes Britney and J. LO are not the best singers but Jennifer lyrically does lyrics more appealing besides childish pop or however you wanna call Britney’s music, but she has been around longer and she is a good performer as well as Britney, but Jennifer gets more attention because she has been around longer and people are interested in her love life because she marries every guy that she dates surprisingly she didn’t marry P. Diddy she probably would of if all that stuff didn’t go down

    I think J.lo is a great dancer and a fun actress, but I agree with this writer on the musical part of her career. In my opinion, her songs are really bland and she doesn’t really put any effort into crafting her music. I read that it took her 3 weeks to finish her last album. As far as her voice, well there’s nothing good to say about it so I’m not gonna say much. I will say that I’m a huge Britney fan, and while she doesn’t have the most powerful voice in the word, I personally enjoy it greatly. That’s a big reason I’m a fan, besides her being a kickass performer and having an awesome personality.

    ^^ Take this clip for example. To me, her voice sounds enticing, unique, sexy, and angelic all at once. It just flows right along with the music and I’d honestly much rather listen to it than some ‘extraordinary’ singer like Whitney, Christina, Mariah, etc. Not dissing them, but it’s just not my style. Maybe that’s why I prefer singers like Dido, Gwen, Norah Jones, and Britney; Just to name a few. *waits to be harassed for my comments* :)-

    What the hell? Seriously they don’t have powerful voices but Jlo can sing better than Skanky Spears. Just listen to ‘Nome Ames’ and compare it to ‘from the bottom of my broken heart’. Huge difference. And I’ve seen Jlo sang live and man, seriously speaking… Britney can’t touch her voice, that’s the funniest thing. HA! That Skank Spears has no musical talent at all as in totally NONE, totally ZERO! Here in my town, some are still making fun of Britney’s voice when she performed ‘Like a Virgin’. Somebody said she sounded like a sick Oscar the grouch.

    Actually I like all kinds of music except I outgrew the whole pop craze. The only teen pop person I listen to is Christina . I am 19 now but when I was 14, I was all in the BSB, NSYNC and yes I once owned a Britney Spears CD, very embarrassing. My favorite band is Linkin Park, my favorite rapper Tupac, country= Dixie Chicks and pop=Christina

  7. amusicfanofsoul says:

    Both are horrible singers that lack vocal talent. I would much rather hear j.lo real voice then what sounds like a frog croaking baby. I mean that isn’t singing. and I actually can’t believe people would listen to such crap! literally! people are supposed to be amazed at talent that is extraordinary and can’t be touched. I believe anyone can out sing Britney anytime. her vocal abilities are so limited that a plain Jane can blow her away with even sorry vocals. when it comes down to actual talent…the thinks that are required…harmony, capability, range, etc., Britney just doesn’t have. and that is why Christina will always have more respect from other artists musically. that’s a thing people can’t deny….Christina is a fantastic singer.

  8. ballersfantasy says:

    Oh, cool man. I like everybody you named too. I’m 19 as well and I was never really into the whole teen bop thing when I was younger. I’ve always liked Christina and Britney, but I didn’t start to like the other teeny boppers until after the big craze was over. I will proudly say I still listen to them all. Especially Brit and Christina (since they’re in right now) By the way, you shouldn’t be embarrassed of having once owned a Britney CD once. Lol.

  9. hellahooked says:

    I agree with this 100%!! Jennifer Lopez sucks. She can’t sing and she has to use rappers who are more popular than her, to get number 1, it’s funny. I don’t have an idea how she got this far in the music industry either with talent like that. I guess her acting helped her a lot, big time.

  10. AllEyezonMe says:

    To whoever said ‘can you ever post without mentioning Christina’ I so agree because who ever that person is pathetic. There’s a comparison here, but has NOTHING to do with Christina. If you wanna go and post on her talents, do it on a forum, or a thread that ACTUALLY HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH HER otherwise you just look stupid no offense. but n e ways, I love them both. I would have rather seen J.lo @ the VMA’s over Christina for the LAV/ Hollywood performance but eh. both are amazing performers who have done other aspects of performing rather than just singing and dancing.

  11. Britney_rocks says:

    Britney can sing I’ve heard her sing plenty of times LIVE! she’s a great singer. and this is the truth I’ve never heard j-lo sing live once in her career, she a plain out studio artist.
