    I like Demi, both musically and from what I know of her personality. I wouldn't say she's an "amazing" singer though. She has a great range and power which allows her to do the fancy vocal runs and stuff, and this sets her apart from the likes of Selena. But, Demi is extremely shrill and strained in her upper register, and it can become very shrieky. Stone Cold for example can be impressive in terms of power and range, but it can also sound like nails down a blackboard. Selena, on the other hand, has hardly any range or power, but is much more smooth and easy on the ears.

    Stretching it is what makes her voice so awful. I wish she would stay inside her range & not oversing all the time!

    You say that about all pop music stars, apart from the unique and very deep Anastacia.

    Wow, a full page discussion about Demi vs. Selena

    the only reasons why Selener did way better this time is cause she picked the perfect singles and went the basic but pretty/kind of sexy girl lane, while Demi sucked a-c with everything after the legendary CFTS which was released too late to reach its full potential. She has no clear image aswell.

    Selena's music is better and she seems like a sweet girl, whereas Demi seems so fake and try-hard to me. So I'm #TeamSelena 100%.

    You do this all the time though?
    I don't pay attention to artists I don't like... Nice to I know I have a fan though GIRL!

    I think Selena's been bigger only with this album tho. Prior to it she was always the least among all (Miley, Demi, Ariana and Selena). The thing is that IMO Demi's album and singles were inferior to Selena's this time hence she did worse. But overall Demi has definately sold more albums and records in both US and Outside US.
    I'm not sure, but is this true? And don't give me that Selena was in a band crap . It was pretty much her.
    Well, not sure about the US, they're pretty even there. But yes, Demi has outsold Selena internationally and she has attained more certifications in several international markets than Selena and her band have. Also in the UK for example Demi has already 5 Top 10 hit singles and 2 Top 10 albums under her belt while Selena has only scored 2 top 10 singles and none of her albums have reached the top 10.

    I wasn't only talking about her vocals. You can clearly see she has way more musicality in her than Selena. Look at their performances... I kinda started stanning for Selener after revival, but she lacks a lot as an artist. Still it's impressive that she's making the best of what she got. Demi has way more possibilities, that's the point I think. Yet that doesn't always cut it, like we have seen 1000 times in history.
    Maybe she has room to grow as a performer. Katy was an awful performer (not only vocally) but she improved herself and her Prism Tour was so much fun. Maybe Selena will do the same in time who knows.
    Absolutely. Never said she couldn't grow. It's all about what you do with what you have. People with more raw talent aren't automatically better artists obviously... Yet we shouldn't forget that it is sometimes easier to find your way musically if you have less talent, your niche will show itself faster than when you have way more options to consider. Having a lot of options creates uncertainty, doubt and the risk of more failures. That's a general rule that can be applied in many domains tbh.
