Following the release of Christina Aguilera's first film, Burlesque, comparisons between her and Britney Spears have resurfaced.
Despite Britney's debut acting performance coming eight years ago in Crossroads, it is inevitable that critics will compare the two after Christina's first silver screen appearance.
Burlesque director Steve Antin said of Aguilera: "At this point in Christina's career radio and CDs are too small for Christina Aguilera. You see her on the big screen and you say, that's where she belongs."
He also stated that "Britney is Britney and Christina is Christina."
Burlesque also stars, alongside Christina Aguilera, Oscar winner Cher.
