    Stick to Gaga ... She’s done way better than Xtina and I’m not being aggressive or trolling regarding that fact.
    You're right, statistically, she is bigger than Xtina, Britney, Pink, Shakira, Avril, Alicia, Katy.

      Well out of that list Gaga sold more records than everyone there except Britney. So yeah, pure numbers wise you were almost right.

      But sure Gaga IMO is more talented than anyone on that list, she’s also more awarded than anyone on that list too.

      I don’t know why you are so sensitive about this issue though. I personally don’t feel threatened by the fact new and younger acts like Taylor and Rihanna outsold Britney already or that Gaga is a technical better artist than nearly every female out there ... however you seem to lose it every time someone does better than Xtina.

        What? You started the discussion with her stats.
        Do you really think I care about Christina's commercial career? I enjoy her music, her collaboration with legends, and one of the best performances I have ever seen. In the real world, real legends are remembered for influencing things and talent, not sales. Why should I care?
        I am simply a fan of a person who has more to say and show than sales (which is manipulative - it's show business, you don't have to know how to sing to make a career - in my opinion it is embarrassing, in the 70s some people would definitely would not have made a career because then you had to have talent).
        Of course I don't feel threatened by anything, lol. It's Christina's career, not mine.

        Btw, Gaga has better stats on Billboard 100/200, more awards, Grammys, recognition, critical acclaim, better singles sales, so she has a bigger career than Britney,

          I love how you have to deflect to Britney because that’s your only argument left. Anyways if that was truly the case then Xtina would’ve made decade-end chart but she didn’t.

            But it's true. Global, not local. Nobody forbade anyone to (successful) cooperate, but hey, both ladies have had a lot of collaborations in this decade.

            And it amuses me because Xtina has always been known as the one with talent and Britney as the one who sold a lot of records. And here in the third decade, Xtina won both in sales and talent.

            But the most important thing is music. So does a song that is 5x platinum make it cool? No, who cares. Gods of Prey has a million streams and it's a 100/10 song.

            Both ladies made their fans happy with their latest albums. After the 2012-13 massacres.

              I think you’re making it seem like Xtina was very successful during the 10s or something but honestly the Maroon 5’s song where she was featured sold 30 million copies .... other than that feature she achieved nearly anything and none of her albums (Bionic, etc) were successful neither her tours or anything. In fact she did so bad that despite having MLJ and SS still she didn’t make the Decade Billboard list of Most Successful artists of the decade.

              Unlike Xtina, Britney did make the decade-end Billboard list of Most Successful artists of the 10s, grossed $260 million in ticket sales and had SOLO Top 10 and Radio hits.

                Yeah, and yet Xtina has sold more CDs than Britney has in the 2010s.

                I don't think Xtina is a super commercially successful woman in the 2010s. but I have the feeling you still think Britney is. She is not. Wake up it's 2020 and no one from the early 2000s is in the lead. Maybe aside from Eminem.

                  Well Britney only released 3 albums during the 10s while Xtina released 4. So actually Xtina had a lower rate / average per album (less success).

                  I never claimed Britney is successful in 2020 LOL ... of course she isn’t but I do think she’s still more popular than Xtina (more followers on every social media platform, her studio albums get more streams, Glory had more streams than Liberation, more Youtube views, her tours pull higher grossing numbers than Xtina’s , etc).

                    The US is a market that happens to represent 60% of the global music market. And Xtina has always lacked international success throughout her career too so I’m not sure why you’re bringing up global success either. And she’s definitely not known for her “talent”. To the GP she’s just a pop star like the others, she’s not above anyone lol.

                        I asked myself the same and I came to the conclusion that some people simply feel an inner heavy desire to have such conversations even if I feel like they're going nowhere in 99% of the cases.
