Christina Aguilera opens up about her rivalry with Britney Spears
Back when Britney Spears (36) and Christina Aguilera (37) debut together, people were thinking of them as rivals and even though they were two totally different people, Christina ended up being the bad girl and Britney, the good girl! Later on, Britney went ahead to have her major success and became an icon while Christina was moving slowly but steadily. Years after all that, now she has decided to open up about how she felt back then in her interview with Cosmopolitan. Here is what she has to say.
"It’s hard to hear yourself being called names. I remember being hurt by these commercials on MTV, pitting Britney as the good girl and me as the bad girl."
"It’s like, if I’m going to be demure and innocent, that’s okay. But if I’m going to just be myself, I’m trouble."
"I love the female body, and I think it’s something to be proud of, not something that men should dictate ownership of."
"‘Dirrty’ was extremely controversial at the time, but it would be nothing now. I hope I paved the way..."
"And helped set the ground rules that women can be any version of themselves they wanna be… and proud of it."
When was asked about why she avoided getting into a relationship with another celebrity, she commented:
"I’ve had opportunities, but it isn’t my style to date another person in the business. There’s gotta be something wrong with you if you want to be in this business."
"I mean, hi! I definitely have my issues. I think that I can only handle one [celebrity] in the relationship, and I need to be it."
She also talked about her new natural look that she has been promoting on her new album:
"I still love getting glammed up, but I want to show imperfections on this go-round. It’s scary, but I’m up for the challenge."
"You can’t tell me something I haven’t already heard about myself anyway."
When asked about her tour, she said: "With this record, I'm stripping back a lot and just trying to find myself again—just the true love and the art in the process..."
"...and not just going for some formulaic sort of force-fed direction that we can get caught up in."
"So I want to flip it on its ear and I want to do something completely unexpected from a pop-formatted show—a fresh perspective that I've never done this of a tour before—super creative, super interesting."
