Britney Spears has defeated Christina Aguilera in our first-ever Throwback Thursday battle!

Congratulations to Britney and all of her fans that voted!
In pop music, we have "New Couple Alerts." But our favorite trouble magnet Chris Brown has his own category and it's a "New Feud Alert," since he is engaged in so many of them. The latest feud to pop up on the Breezy radar? Former 'N Sync member Lance Bass, who disapproves his use of the "F" word.
When Justin Bieber's 'Boyfriend' video dropped, filled with rooftop dancing and fast cars, he claimed to have no prior knowledge of 'N Sync's vid for 'Girlfriend,' which was similarly named and themed.
Well, someone who goes by the Raheemdaplaya04 handle has buckets of creativity and a whole lot of time on their hands, not to mention the digital equipment and the wherewithal, since they created a mashup of both songs and videos. The end result is seamless and flawless, proving that the videos and the songs are closely related.
Justin Bieber's record-shattering 'Boyfriend' video drew a few comparisons to 'N Sync's 'Girlfriend' clip, a critique that the Biebs himself shot down by claiming that he never even saw that vid. That didn't stop him from throwing props to the boy band's most famous member, Justin Timberlake, though.
It's the timeless debate between pop fans who lived through the late '90s / early '00s: 'N Sync or Backstreet Boys? Back in they heyday, these two quintets pretty much ruled the airwaves and television, with their songs bumping from car stereos and headphones all over the world and their music videos playing on repeat on networks like MTV. Oh, and don't forget the sold-out world tours!
