Opinions on the two pop artists debate who is truly the Queen of Pop, the difference in music and who has the most loyal fan base. As one opinion stated, "While Gaga's been going out in meat dresses and ten-inch heels, Britney's been going to her son's baseball games and went shopping for groceries -- just like any normal person does. The fact is, she doesn't so much care about living the pop star life as much as she wants to live an actual life..."

On the opposing side of the debate, one opinion stated, "She writes her own songs, co-produces most of her songs, sings her songs live, plays piano, and is a fashion icon. Her songs are not bubblegum pop... like Britney Spears."
