Xtina's Delusional Manager Shades Britney and J.Lo

Former pop singer and Mouseketeer, now talent show judge, Christina Aguilera, is well known for shading her fellow pop stars, especially those more successful than her. As if she was competing with Mariah Carey for the most shady comments, Xtincta often likes to take a jab at the likes of Gaga, Britney or Mariah herself.

It seems that Christina's manager has learned this discipline from her, as shown in a recent interview when he was asked about whether she would consider a Vegas residency. His response shows that he has obviously been living under a rock for the past decade:

“Just not time yet. No disrespect to Britney or to Jennifer Lopez who’s doing one or to Shania who did one or any of them. Christina's not peaked yet. She’s in the prime of her career, will tour the world. We’re not ready to sit down in Vegas.”

So how delusional do you have to be to actually utter these words? Let's set aside the fact that Britney and J.Lo are not in her prime anymore, because that is actually true. Jennifer's peak was during the J.Lo album, while Britney's peak was during Toxic, but both of them have had many successful albums, singles and sold out tours since then. 

On the other hand, Xtincta's peak was Stripped (released 2002 - yup, 13 years ago), after which it all went downhill. The Mi Reflejo singer's last two albums have been massive flops (Who can name them? Anyone? OK, I'll help you: Boink and Lettuce), while her tour from 2010 had to be cancelled due to low interest. Also, her last solo hit was Hurt, from nearly 10 years ago.

Sorry, Mr Manager (let's call him that way because who's gonna look his name up), I know you're trying to put a positive spin on things, but next time do it so that you won't get embarrassed like this.

Selena Gomez Releases New Single Same Old Love

Pop princess Selena Gomez has dropped her new single Same Old Love just months after her latest hit Good For You, showing us that she's ready to experiment and move away from her standard pop formula from her previous albums.

First of all, Good For You was a slow and sexy RnB jam that was nothing like she's done before, and now comes Same Old Love, another surprise. This song is a mid-tempo with an RnB sound, but not at all like Good For You or any of her previous hits. Whether or not it will be a hit remains to be seen, but judging by the song's quality, it should definitely be another success for Selena!

Same Old Love will serve as the 2nd single off Selena's upcoming album Revival, which is out in just a few weeks! You can already preorder Revival before its official release date, which is October 9. Here's the official tracklist for the album:

1. Revival
2. Kill 'Em With Kindness
3. Hands To Myself
4. Same Old Love
5. Sober
6. Good For You (feat. ASAP Rocky)
7. Camouflage
8. Me & The Rhythm
9. Survivors
10. Body Heat
11. Rise

- Deluxe:
12. Me & My Girls
13. Nobody

- International deluxe and Target edition:
14. Perfect
15. Outta My Hands (Loco)
16. Cologne

Judging by the first two singles, Revival could be a major change in Selena's sound, moving away from pop/dance to more mature RnB, mid-tempo sound. Although, some of the track titles sound like they're going to be club bangers (Body Heat, Me & The Rhythm), so maybe it'll be a mix of different sounds. Just a few more weeks before we find out!
