Britney and Christina in FHM, saying "For the record, I love Britney and
Christina and I totally respect them as artist and entertainers. I think

that is what happens in this business."

like me for me." Her specific comments about her breasts? "In eighth grade,
my boobs were bigger than all of my other friends. I used to tape 'em down,
I was afraid to show 'em. But now I feel like they just make my outfit
look better. They are like an accessory or something."

October 6, 2000 - Jessica
Simpson is putting both Britney and Christina on blast, according to today's
report from Entertaindom.com. Says Simpson of Aguilera, "Christina and
I talk, and I think she's a great person underneath the facade. She is
very big right now; she definitely knows she has sold eight million records
and I don't really like that in people. I don't think you should act like
that. I don't think you should block the halls off when you want to walk
down the hall. It's important to stay normal, but people lose their heads
in this business. They lose who they are as people. I knew Christina before
her stuff came out and she's a great girl, but -- boom! -- she hit so fast
and some people just can't handle it." And if you think she's easy on Britney,
think again, "All of a sudden her boobs aren't as big as they used to be.
I think people gave her such a hard time about it she might have gone back
to undo it or something. That's sad. Personally, I don't believe in it."
