Britney Spears' new memoir, The Woman in Me, set to launch on October 24, is buzzing in anticipation among readers and fans alike. Yet, intriguingly, Christina Aguilera might not be eager to be part of its narrative. Appearing recently on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the celebrated Grammy artist was cornered into discussing her potential involvement in the much-anticipated memoir.

When Kimmel broached the subject of her possible mention, Aguilera responded with grace, saying, "I'm hoping that everything is all good with her and everything's beautiful. I think the future should be celebrated." However, Kimmel's playful probing about her choice of being included led to some light-hearted banter.

While Aguilera's playful side-eye and chuckles spoke volumes, she cleverly deflected by suggesting that Kimmel should get a mention instead. "So hopefully you'll be in it. You'll make the book," she teased.

Spears-Aguilera: Decades of Ties

Given the long-standing history between Spears and Aguilera, it's hard to imagine the latter not making at least a passing appearance in the memoir.

Their shared memories, starting from their early days on The New Mickey Mouse Club and evolving into a so-called rivalry during their teenage pop sensation years, are iconic. Not to mention, their unforgettable joint kiss with Madonna during the 2003 VMAs remains etched in pop culture memory.

In recent times, Aguilera has been vocal in supporting Spears, especially during her grueling conservatorship battle. She was ardently on Spears' side, voicing that it was "unacceptable" for Spears to not have autonomy over her life.

However, a digital rift emerged when Aguilera unfollowed Spears on Instagram. This move came after Spears allegedly made body-shaming comments targeting Aguilera. Spears later addressed the incident, emphasizing she'd "never intentionally body shame anybody" and proceeded to commend Aguilera for her inspiration and power.

With such a rich tapestry of shared memories and ups and downs, it remains to be seen how Aguilera will be portrayed, if at all, in Spears' memoir. Yet, considering their intertwined journeys, it wouldn't be surprising to find Christina Aguilera as an intriguing chapter in The Woman in Me.
