WHO IS THE BEST?
Katy Perry Versus Britney Spears
This fight is between girls from two different age divisions. However, despite the age difference, both of them are extremely famous.
Whereas Britney is already a living legend, the young and charming Katy has lots of potential to reach Britney's fame or even overpass it.
Katy became a world star quite recently, and she keeps growing slowly but steadily. Quite a few of her songs have already become hits, and many compositions are certainly still to become hits in the future.
Her song about kissing a girl has gained her millions of fans internationally, both among guys and girls. As for Britney, it's quite for some time she has been the American sex symbol. Her eccentricity makes her even more popular, and gains her new fans.
Our today's fighters belong to different weight categories, that is true. Possibly the young Perry does not look as convincing as her rival. However maybe Katy's young age and her temperamental character will help her to defeat the American youth idol.
