The next Madonna?
Long ago, when Britney and Christina were dominating the music scene, I rooted for Team Britney. Christina had a good voice, I gave her that, but she had all of, what, two songs that I liked?
I was talking to Byron about once and wondered aloud if Britney would be the next Madonna. After people laughed Britney off, I had to say - Madonna started off much the same way, didn't she? Madge didn't have a very strong voice, sounding much like Britney's own bubblegum. They were both very sexually provocative, pushing the envelope at their respective times in their videos and performances. (For some reason, 15 years later, Madonna is still posing prone on crosses in her performances. I wonder why she still thinks that's shocking.)
The Kiss Seen 'Round The World made perfect sense to me.
I thought maybe Britney had a future in store for her like Madonna. Maybe she'd think of new ways to play her sexiness to the world, take some voice lessons, continue to make interesting music for years to come. (Not that I'm a Madonna fan.)
I officially take all that back.
On a slightly related note, Christina is still doing awesome. I like her. She manages to dress like a stripper without really coming off as a slut. She goes out and gets tipsy with her husband a lot. And she has an incredible
voice still. Heard her latest song? It has a very interesting sound.http://www.christinaaguilera.com/
