Courtney Love Wanted To Sing Xtina Anthem "Beautiful
"In my entire life I've never wanted a song fully rendered, that someone else has written - ever… [the song] was 11 years old at the time… and she ended up giving it to Christina Aguilera, but I begged her for it. She said to me at the time… 'You're not ready for top 40; you will be. You'll hate this song because you didn't write it' - which is totally true… and then we got into a fierce fight about whether she should give it to Britney [Spears] or Christina. She said, 'Someday, you and me are gonna write a song that's better and better suited for you'. Again it's an old song… She just whipped it out one day."
