Christina Aguilera apparently hasn't reached her peak yet - unlike fellow pop superstars Britney Spears and Jennifer Lopez.
That's according to her manager Irving Azoff, who says that the Your Body
singer won't be following Brit-Brit and J-Lo to Vegas anytime soon, because she's still in the "prime of her career". Ouch.
When asked about a prospective Las Vegas residency for Aguilera in a podcast with Pauly Shore, Azoff said that it is "not time yet" for The Voice USA
"No disrespect to Britney, or to Jennifer Lopez, who's doing [a residency], and Shania [Twain], who did one, but Christina's not peaked yet," the manager said.
"She's in the prime of the career."
Aguilera released her most recent album, Lotus
, in 2012. It peaked at number 28 on the UK charts.
Spears recently announced that she is extended her recently extended her Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood for another two years, while Lopez announced earlier this year that she would be beginning one of her own in January 2016.
Discussing Aguilera's upcoming plans, Azoff continued: "[Christina's] about to go back on The Voice
, about to finish a record, about to do another guest shot on Nashville
, and the record's amazing.
"She's never happier and never done better."
We wouldn't dare get involved in a debate about who's peaked and who hasn't frankly - that's far too dangerous a topic for a Monday. All we know is that this is probably the only excuse we'll get to post these incredible 'Britney and Christina through the ages' throwback pics.
Coincidentally, it was only this year that Christina revealed she could do a mean Britney impression during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel - click here to check it out
