    I didn't say it wasn't; I said it was a SIMPLER song than Genie In A Bottle.

    I'm loving reading all the entries, except when it comes to Britney comparisons. That's one obvious field that Xtina loons should try to avoid at all costs because it makes you sound so delluded! Like claiming that Dirrty is the most important female single of the last 15 years or that people rather hear Genie over BOMT these days. That' just WRONG! :D Xtina won the VOX dispute from day one. Britney basically won everything else.

    Britney's biggest win was a lifetime supply of prozac. Xtina's was the GIFT of ATISTRY. I know which I would take!

    I'm not sure that Britney being unable to function as a human being counts as WINNING. But yes, she's had the more successful career.

    I would actually say this is where each WINS:

    Britney
    A bigger star
    More popular/well-liked
    More hits
    More sales
    Worldwide popularity
    More interest in her life
    More dramatic career meltdown
    Used to be a better dancer

    Christina
    Better vocals
    More enduring/classic songs
    Better live performer
    More interesting personality
    Better grip on reality
    Able to walk unaided
    Can read

    As a MOTHER, as a woman fighting the fight for other people in her position (women), and as somebody who is frankly too heavy to float, I think it's fair to say Xtina is FIRMLY GROUNDED.

    When you're having to default to BASIC LITERACY to give Christina as many wins as Britney, you know you're on a hiding to nothing. :D

    The ultimate question:

    Britney's British accent or X-Tina's dabble with Ebonics circa 2002-4

    I guess Christina considering her commitment to the cause in actually changing RACES for the said period

    I think we need some clips of Blacktina and Britishney to really call this one. Both were fabulous.

    :disco: It always gets to this stage. Though, really, it is a stupid comparison. To a non-fan of either they may seem in competition/interchangeable, but anyone who has a bit of love for pop music can see that they are worlds apart in as far as what they are trying to achieve. Xtina is obvsiouly trying to reinvent the wheel and is genuinely interested in creating 'concepts', which I respect. Britney has merely being a vehicle for MAX TRACKS since '04 with a combined input of about 3.5 hours worth of work. It just comes down to whether you actually require personality/input to enjoy music or you don't give a shit, really.

    I do think the image of Britney fans vs Christina fans is quite interesting. I know a few of each, and the Xtina fans that I've come across are the far more reserved, probably more low-key and maybe would come across as slightly 'classier'. It's the Britney fans that are the hot mess, 'free spirits', ballsy type bitches. Pretty much a reverse of the respective artists :D Though naturally this is based on about four Australian gays so hardly an accurate investigation.

    Anyhoo, I am very happy to admit Genie is a fantastic single. Sounds much better nowadays than it did at the time for me. It's one of the few vocal attempts I can handle from her. I'll be shocked if Fighter takes this out :o

    Poor old Diane is a tricky one - for every stone cold sickly smash she's had, there's also acres of drivel. She also seems to be quite polarising amongst the pop cogniscienti - no one quite likes exactly the same stuff... for all I detest "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing", it's clearly got quite a fan base. On the flipside, I think "There You'll Be" is quite marvellous, whereas I'm sure the general opinion is that it is strictly second rate.

    Can't believe she's never marched home with an Oscar though - she seems like perfect Academy Award fodder. I blame Hollywood's innate homophobia.
