Ever since Christina Aguilera expertly swerved Jimmy Kimmel's attempt to get a juicy quote about Britney Spears' memoir, The Woman in Me, there's been a lot of interest about what Britney said about Christina in the book. The short answer? Not that much! And what Britney did say isn't super dramatic—though she definitely wasn't pleased with Xtina for posing with her ex Justin Timberlake on the cover of Rolling Stone.

Check out every mention of Christina Aguilera in Britney's memoir below, but for what it's worth, Christina told Kimmel that she's happy for Brit, saying, "I don't know. I mean, I'm hoping that everything is all good with her and everything's beautiful. I think the future should be celebrated."

On Being in the Same Disney Clique

“The Mouseketeers quickly split into our own cliques, divided by the dressing rooms that we shared: Christina Aguilera and I were the younger kids, and we shared a dressing room with another girl, Nikki DeLoach," Britney said, per Today. "We looked up to the older kids—Keri Russell, Ryan Gosling, and Tony Lucca, who I thought was so handsome. And quickly I connected with a boy named Justin Timberlake.”

Speaking of Justin Timberlake, more on his reaction to Britney's memoir over here (spoiler: it's not great/he's apparently less than thrilled).

On Their Party Era

“The tours under the conservatorship were strictly sober, so we weren’t allowed to drink," Britney explained, via The New York Post. "Once, I ended up with most of the same dancers as Christina Aguilera. The dancers and I met up with Christina in Los Angeles. She seemed pretty messed up. But the dancers and I wound up swimming in a beautiful pool and sitting in a Jacuzzi. It would have been nice to have drinks with them, to get rebellious, sassy, fun. I wasn’t allowed to do that because my life had become a Sunday-school Bible church camp under the conservatorship.”

On Christina Posing With Justin Timberlake in Rolling Stone

"They were together on the cover of Rolling Stone, him in a black tank top, looking at her with hot eyes, her looking out at the camera, wearing a lace-up black shirt," Britney wrote per Yahoo!. "In that story, she said she thought Justin and I should get back together, which was just confusing, given how negative she'd been elsewhere. Even if they weren't trying to be cruel, it felt like they were just pouring salt in the wound. Why was it so easy for everyone to forget that I was a human being—vulnerable enough that these headlines could leave a bruise?"

On Christina Being a Total TV Natural

“I think a lot of people are really professional on TV, like Christina Aguilera and Gwen Stefani. When the camera’s on them, they thrive. And that’s great,” Britney said, via the New York Post. “I used to be able to do that when I was younger, but again, I feel like I age backwards when I‘m afraid. And so I got to where I was very, very nervous if I knew I had to be on air, and I didn’t like being nervous all day long."

Annnnd that's about it! Notably, Britney didn't mention Christina in her recollection of the viral kiss she shared with Madonna, which is somewhat hilarious given that Christina was performing with them and also kissed Madonna, but ya know. Maybe in the next memoir!
