Christina Aguilera Speaks Out Again on Britney Spears as an ‘X Factor’ Judge
Brace yourselves, the pop music world is about to explode because Christina Aguilera, the voice of our generation and a judge on ‘The Voice,’ continues to have something nice to say about newest ‘X Factor‘ judge Britney Spears.
“I came up with Britney [on] ‘The Mickey Mouse Club’ [and] we were very close. Our paths have always crossed and they will continue to cross,” Aguilera said to Parade. “I welcome her to this family of fun and entertainment and finding talent as well.” She also made sure to mention that Spears is a “pro” and that she’ll “give great advice” to ‘X Factor’ contestants.
Since the two singers first appeared in the public eye in the ’90s as young, fresh-faced hopefuls trying to make it in the music industry outside their failed ‘Mickey Mouse Club’ reboot, Aguilera and Spears have been compared to each other, with claims of a strong rivalry between the two. But alas, Aguilera has put an end to the rumors.
“I’m not down with [pitting women against women] at this point of my life,” she said. “I have no patience for it so I’m like ‘the more the merrier.’ It’s a fun thing to be a part of and I think she’ll have fun with it.”
Xtina previously told Extra the same thing (about being a “pro”), adding: “Britney is so talented.”
We. Die. … for those nice words.
