It's hard to believe that both Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera are now 36 years old. These two "princesses of pop" have staying power like few others in the music industry.
Britney Spears turned 36 back on December 2. Christina's birthday is December 18.
Ever since they met on the 'Mickey Mouse Club' in 1992, people have wanted to compare them and perpetuate a 'Britney vs. Christina' rivalary, a time honored tradition we're continuing with this very story. It's fun.
There's no doubt each of these tremendously talented women have had incredible successes.
Britney's Las Vegas show, "Piece of Me," is one of the most popular and profitable shows on the strip with 250+ performances over the course of four years.
Christina judges on "The Voice" on NBC. That show now has four Best Reality-Competition Program Emmys under its belt.
The Britney vs. Christina phenomenon really started right after their debut albums in 1999. Britney's "...Baby One More Time" would go head-to-head with Christina's self-titled record as the pop music album of the year. The videos for their first singles, "...Baby One More Time" and "Genie in a Bottle," were both TRL mainstays on MTV.
In 2000, Christina won the GRAMMY for Best New Artist over Britney and after that, they'd be compared for a decade plus.
They'd both go on to make films and go on sell-out tours. They'd each take time to build families of their own. And, they'd continue to be at the forefront of pop music and pop-culture.

And speaking of music-related nostalgia...
2017 might have some decent hits so far, but let's go back in time. Nostalgia is a powerful thing. If you lived through the '90s, hearing your favorite songs from the decade in a bar are probably enough to get you out of your seat. Some of these songs just stick with you, even after all these years have passed.
But how well has your memory held up since then? You might feel the urge to sing along, but do you actually remember the correct lyrics? Or are there a few blank spots in between the main chorus? Take this quiz to test your memory and bring back all of those nostalgic feelings!
Do you ever hear a song and immediately think of your relationship? Some lyrics can seem tailor-made for your particular situation. After all, pop stars fall in love and go through breakups too. And so far this year, there have been plenty of songs about love. But which one perfectly describes your love life? That's what we're here to tell you!
