Who’s Jealous Of Who?

Contributed by xanthe:

As a fan, when defending my favorite singer I constantly have one line thrown in my face from Britney Spears fans. ‘You’re Jealous.’ I am accused of being jealous that Britney has sold more albums than Christina, or that Britney’s Madonna kiss received more attention, among other things.

I deny this over and over again, because in all honesty, I am not jealous. Rarely do Britney Spears fans take me seriously. I commend Britney for being a media sensation and selling so many records. Good for her.

I am immensely proud of Christina Aguilera, as I’m sure Britney’s fans are proud of Britney Spears. But the difference is – I’m not proud of Christina because of how many records she sells. It’s not even her Grammy awards that I’m proud of.

I’m proud of Christina for producing a ground breaking album full of creative, meaningful songs. I’m proud of her for using her enormous voice beautifully on songs full of artistic integrity and emotion. I’m proud of her for expressing herself. I’m proud of her for pushing boundaries, for being daring and fearless. I’m proud of her for being proud of herself. I’m proud of her for going against the grain, and for holding her head high and speaking her mind. I’m proud of her for pulling a re-invention so successful Madonna would be proud. I’m proud of Christina for singing live. I’m proud of Christina for putting on an amazing live show. I’m proud of Christina for never disrespecting her fans. But above everything, I am proud of ‘Stripped’.

For me, it’s the music that matters. Christina is an artist, who is so talented and heart-felt. I don’t care how many albums she sells.

To me, Britney will never be in the same category as Christina. In my honest opinion, Britney is not an artist, nor a musician. Her lack of vocal talent is embarrassing, and her songs are shockingly soulless and shallow. These are words I would never use to describe Christina. I will always acknowledge Britney’s amazing album sales. That’s really great for her.

But Christina could sell 100 copies of Stripped, and it would not take away the amazing bulk of talent and creativity crammed into that album.

In my opinion, I think Britney fans are the ones to be jealous.

But hey, it’s only an opinion, kids.

    I was agreeing with your article until you got to the stupid part of us being jealous. Your just sinking to a level that the other Brit fans will be on. Every fan base has stupid idiots. Both Britney and Christina. You can’t let them get you down. But don’t criticize all the Brit fans, like I don’t criticize Christina fans. Because I haven’t met them. Don’t let them get you down, didn’t Christina sing a song about something like that…?

    Yeah Christina has a good voice but that does not make her more of an artist than Britney it just makes her a good singer. I am sick of people saying Britney does not have a good voice-her voice is good granted but not Whitney, Mariah good. Britney still has just as good of a voice as other singers and a better voice that many like J.Lo. Trust me Britney fans are not jealous of Christina since Britney is way more successful and popular than Xtina. Besides Christina is the one jealous of Britney. How else do you explain her saying nice things about Britney until Britney stole her spotlight with the kiss.

    I started reading this essay but then quit because I thought my head was going to explode from monotony same old sh-t just worded differently trust me, as a Britney fan, none of us are jealous of Christina – if that were true then we would be Christina fans-it seems to me the majority of these essays about Britney are written by Christina fans , so that tells me they are the jealous ones

    I was cheering with you until you accused the Britney fans of being jealous. I mean, what was the point of this essay then?? If I ignore that little piece, though, I’d give you a 10/10. Well said!

    WHO GIVES A FLYING BLEEP. AND BY THE WAY MY BRIT PREDICTIONS ARE TURNING OUT TO BE QUITE ACCURATE, BEFORE THE WEEKEND I SAID SHE WOULD SELL ABOUT 600K ALBUMS. AND RIGHT NOW ABOUT 80% OF THE SALES RECORDS ARE IN AND SHE’S SOLD 532K, WHICH SHOWS A STEADY DECLINE IN THE SALES COMPARING TO THE FIRST DAY SALES. I KNEW SHE’D HAVE A GREAT FIRST WEEK, WHAT’S LEFT TO SEE IS WHAT WILL HAPPEN IN THE WEEKS TO COME.

    They are jealous, the have been from day 1. If you insist you slut idol has sold more albums then why do I always see you on Christina articles being like “well Britney did that, Britney was number 1 before, Britney is hotter” Please, if you are so sure of your idol why are you threatened. We just hate the bitch cause she can’t sing, and that fake nasty ass should be thought morals. It has nothing to do with as liking Christina Aguilera. I could be the biggest Beyonce, Mariah anyone else’s fans and still think that bitch Britney is fake. And also have the noticed when the bitch flops at something, their like Christina was blah blah. Get over your jealous ass, no one cares about your whining.

    For all those that complain to much you have nothing better in your life to do besides to sit there and put someone down and by saying Britney can’t sing no one is forcing you to listen to it if you don’t like her singing then listen to something else. Its getting kind of old hearing the same stuff over and over. Please learn to come up with something better. And for those that think Britney is fake how would you know have you seen her in real life? If you haven’t then you have no room to talk.

    ^oh really, you know whats getting old Britney fans writing essays saying how everyone is jealous of her cause she sold more records. Please Shania and lot more people, even Mariah sold more than her but you don’t hear her fans saying sh*t in every article. Yes she is a fake artist because she hardly sings, she lies and we all know she does because a couple of months later she will say a different thing. Its very disrespectful when fans pay their money to support you and you do things half-assed by not trying to sing and give them robotic dancing. embarrassing artist she is.
