Christina was only able to make the CDs the way she wanted with Stripped and Back to Basics. Then the label wanted something more dance music and pop and that ruined her career - although Bionic and Lotus went gold in the US. At the time of her last CD, Liberation, she commented that she was finally able to do what she wanted again, but the audience that listens to music via streaming did not die of love for her.

Christina would not even be compared to Britney if they had not been on the Mickey Mouse Club together and around the same age. If Britney didn't become a big star. Christina likely would have still been successful. She recorded Reflection for Mulan in 1998. The film was released months before Britney's breakout single ....Baby One More Time came out. She was lining up to do a adult contemporary R&B style album in vein of Mariah Carey. But Britney's surprise success had Christina's label push back her debut album to make it sound more dance-pop. Christina's debut was originally going to predate Britney's but the delay had Britney's debut first. Thus Christina got wrongly accused of being a Britney clone. I can only imagine how bitter that made Christina but I've never had the impression that she blamed Britney for any of it, she seemed more angry at the execs.

Britney and Xtina came out in 1999 leading into the 2000s with Jessica Simpson, Mandy Moore, Pink, Beyoncé etc.
GaGa came in the late 00s leading into the 2010s with Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, Kesha, Adele etc.

But she did write a letter apologizing to Britney, back in 2004 or 2005, I remember that being on newswebsites,so I guess she matured better than Brit.

Troll she sold less than five million with American life and that album was PRETTY SUCCESSFUL compared to her 2010s career, Meanwhile Stripped released less than six months sold more than 11.5 million.
Lets not even mention that also increasing her millions between the first and second album Christina also released two dvds, a spanish album, a Christmas album, a remix album and Just be free, the denied album.
This means Christina sold at least some 27 million cds/dvds around the world from late 1999 - mid 2004.
Was Madonna selling those numbers back then?
The answer is no, and was she ever close to selling 14 million in the late 2000s Like Christina had done in the early 2000s? Hmmm... NO!
Christina also had the most lucrative female tour of the year 2007,even though Rihanna and Beyonce were getting more attention than her by that point.
Of course she is more successful than Britney and Christina combined together overall, but she wasn't individually doing better than them in the 2000s
Plus Britney, Christina and Mariah are the only three female artists to have a video of 90s, a video of 2000s as well as a video of the 2010s with more than 100million views each.

Madonna had her heyday in the 80s and 90s. She still was big in the early 2000s but she was at legacy act level by then. Christina, Britney were younger and more in with the younger crowd. Mariah and Gwen Stefani were in their 30s and still had popularity in the mid 2000s. But by the time Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Beyoncé and Katy Perry got in. Madonna, Mariah and Christina were fading. Britney had a comeback from 2008 to 2011.
That said. Christina and Britney never had a real rivalry. That was an invention of the media and fans. Christina doesn't see Britney on her level of talent. Christina was more competing with Beyoncé and Kelly Clarkson.
Britney and Timberlake had a rivalry because they were about the same talent wise. Both were in dance-pop. They both were Janet and Michael Jackson clones respectively.

I respect Madonna for her hard work and longevity but after 2005. She started sucking. She already went downhill after Ray of Light as Music and American Life were mediocre in comparison and she regressed in maturity. Confessions was a good comeback record but she jumped the shark after and all she does is copy trends instead of start them. She became a joke to anyone under the age of 35.
I know this will piss off some. But I would say Rihanna, Beyonce, Gaga and Taylor Swift took elements of Madonna, Janet, Britney and Christina and perfected it to have longevity even into the 2020s.

Yep, impressive that Madonna Career had lasted some 20/21 years already by that point, Christina and Britney certainly didn't have that in 2019; but back in the 2000s songs such as fighter/beautiful and Toxic were doing better than Madonna's songs.

Nope is not a fact, it's impossible that she sold 8 million from 2008 - 2010 without outselling Gaga, because even Gaga herself never sold 14 million in a single album like Christina did.
And Gaga's fans were trolling EVERYONE back then, because Gaga was the most important singer of 2009 just like Alanis Morrisette was the most important singer of 1996.
Heck, even Beyonce was doing better with her 'I'm Sasha Fierce' era back then. Yes I remember her big Hard Candy tour in 2008/9 but even then, I got a crazy fan of hers to agree with me that she was flopping already.
Madonna did better than Christina in 2006 when confessions sold a lot more than Back to Basics, but the case remains that Oldonna didn't sell at least 27 million copies from 1999-2007 and Christina did.
She also didn't do as much publicity stunts as Xtina and Britney did in the early/mid 2000s.

Back on topic. Britney had the better production team. While her early teen pop albums were inconsistent and quite dated and forgettable aside from the singles. Britney's three albums of the later 2000s: Blackout, Circus and Femme Fatale were impressively high quality and aged well. Glory wasn't bad either and had a nice laid-back sound.

Britney dropped the ball on Britney Jean. It was low effort and she didn't bother to sing on most of the songs. The leaked demos of her struggle-singing around that time didn't help her either. It rubbed a lot of people the wrong way because it showed a lack of professionalism to use a ghost singer. Many pop artists have backup singers but that's different than not singing on the song at all.

Britney, who I never could listen to or watch (please) at least is quirky, slippery but authentic from one disconnected moment to the next, and obviously capable of atrractiing massive amounts of attention without even singing one note. Sure, she's objectified and disordered and recognizes the existence of no other person, but at least she's unaware of what that usually means to someone's spirit.
She's the kind of woman who would pull her underwear down and struggle to get a tennis ball up her cooch as she sits on the floor in front of when and, when she noticed the look on your face, she would say, "What?

Christina, Timberlake, Beyonce and Britney were all trained from childhood for the stage. But they weren't trained on Broadway or went to art school. Just pageant shows and county fairs. Star Search and Mickey Mouse Club. They aren't educated in the traditional art sense. They were groomed to be performers not musicians. That's why they are more flamboyant and lacking in substance. The entertainment industry molded them. Once they stopped making money and getting older. The industry pulled the plug on them for younger manufactured stars.
Madonna and Janet willed themselves as adults and had to work hard for their careers. Janet had the connections already but she needed to cut out certain people like her family to get a hit album and stand out. Madonna rubbed elbows with everyone in NY art scene and joined bands and performed at clubs for years. They had longer careers because they were smart and had creative freedom. They both ran their course and declined in quality but they had their legacies cemented.

Britney was molded as a Madonna and Janet clone with some Spice Girls, Robyn and a dash of TLC and Aaliyah too. Christina was molded as a Mariah clone but also took from Britney and Madonna. Timberlake a clone of MJ and Usher and later Prince. While Beyoncé was a clone of Donna Summer, Diana Ross and Tina Turner. They were all pastiche not originators. But they will even acknowledge it though... Well except Christina, she's never been humble.

They took their shots at Britney (and others) too R40, but that reminds me of the MADTV parody of "Beautiful", regarding her "Dirrty" image. It's not the height of sophisticated comedy, but it definitely makes its point.

Their parody of BOMT was funny. It’s one of the few music video skits of theirs I found funny. Because it was so true. They really marketed 16 year old Britney as a Virgin school girl sex kitten

Nothing original about Madonna, she was always copying Marilyn Monroe and admitted to copying Cyndi Lauper.
