Christina Aguilera might be an anomaly for wishing social media was around at the start of her career, but she certainly has a good reason.
Throughout the early-2000s, the purported Aguilera and Britney Spears rivalry helped to fill celebrity gossip pages around the globe. Although they had different voices and sensibilities, they were relentlessly pitted against each other in the pop world.
Had the likes of Twitter or Instagram been around, Aguilera could’ve easily put that scuttlebutt to rest.
“[Celebrities] come together more now, and if this was back in the day whenever people would compare me to other artists and things that were happening, I would’ve loved to have squash it before having an interview,” she told Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday.
Aguilera said she would’ve liked to do a song with Spears to end those rumours, and that social media could have made it happen. You know what, it’s not too late.
“If her reps say OK, then well…” Aguilera trailed off, leaving us hoping, wishing, waiting for the pop collaboration of our dreams.
