Britney Spears Vs. Lady Gaga: Perez Hilton Weighs In

'It's gonna be a very competitive year for females in music, and that's exciting,' celeb blogger explains.

Fans are responding with fervor to the great pop battle of 2011. Who will come out on top when Lady Gaga and Britney Spears release new music this year?

Well, it seems that Perez Hilton has a feeling that both ladies will be wildly successful. And he also pointed out that there are a few other horses in this race.

"The gays will be very happy. I think it's going to be super exciting and competitive, especially because Ke$ha's still going to be around and Katy Perry's still around," he told MTV News. "It's gonna be a very competitive year for females in music, and that's exciting."

If we're putting Gaga and Brit head to head, who would Perez place his bet on? "When the dust settles, I definitely think that Lady Gaga will win in this battle just because I know personally that Gaga is so hungry and determined to make this album successful that she's going to work so hard," he said. "Whereas Britney and her camp think she doesn't have to work as hard. It will be successful, but I don't think it will be as successful as Gaga's."

He may give it to Gaga in the end, but he noted that Britney does have a leg up — initially, at least.

"Britney Spears has an advantage coming out first, because if Gaga would have come out first, that would have hurt Britney," he explained. "But Britney can have her moment to shine, and I look forward to hearing [her single]."
