Courtney Love Wanted To Sing Xtina Anthem Beautiful

Could you imagine Courtney Love singing Christina Aguilera's Beautiful??

We know! Bizarre, right??

Well according to Miz Love, if she had had her way, the track would have been hers!

Thankfully, the song's writer, Linda Perry, told her the two weren't the right fit!

She reveals:

"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."

We think that it was a pretty smart move! Courtney's take definitely would have been interesting, but Xtina OWNS that song!

We just don't think we would have it any other way!

What do U think?? Would have liked to hear Courtney Love sing Beautiful instead of Xtina??

    It would be nice to see them both brutally gang raped. Bon apetit!



  2. 2

    A comparison of apples and bowling balls.



  3. 3

    LInda Perry is amazing. She made the right choice.



  4. 4

    I think Christina does own the song. Her voice fits the part :)



  5. 5

    That song was soo beautiful it would of been even more beautiful if Christina herself wrote it ..:(



  6. 6

    PPl need to go watch her 2004 grammy performance of it, now THAT WAS the DEFINITION OF POWERHOUSE VOCALS. Bionic FTW.



  7. 7

    Just FYI, Christina nailed the song in just one freakin' take. Linda Perry wanted to keep the song for herself but found the rendition by Christina was so good she had to give it to her!

    I am not usually that assertive, and I'm not particularly a fan of Christina, but AFAIC, nobody will ever touch what she accomplished with the song. NO-ONE. Ever! Gosh I still get goosebumps listening to the song!!!



  8. 8

    Oh look, something positive about Xtina.



  9. 9

    nobody but Xtina can sing that song..P!nk hated the fact that she got it also..cuz i think Pink wanted that jam….a good friend of mine told me this cuz he worked on the song with linda and Xtina….so too bad for P!nk & to bad for this crack head…Team XTINA!



  10. 10

    HAHAHAHA WOW. Clove is such a liar. I bet this never even happened. If Linda Perry really wanted Clove to succeed she wouldn't have given her P!nks leftovers and made that godawful album America's Sweetheart.

    Clove… you really need to take your Klonopin, hun.



  11. 11

    both!



  12. 12

    N to the hell no



  13. 13

    Hellz yes Courtney Love would be a way more interesting celebrity than Clonetina!



  14. 14

    NO ONE could touch this song like Christina does.



  15. 15

    courtney is too ugly on the inside to sing that song!



  16. 16

    No one could sing that song like Christina did. I didn't even like her at the time, but I couldnt' help loving the way she sang that song. I also heard that P!nk wanted that song, and was peev'd that Linda gave it to Christina. And there is NO WAY in the world Britney could have ever sang that song. It wouldn't have worked with overly processed vocals and nasal singing.



  17. 17

    ew no fucking way

    Re: xoxo_anonymous – i couldn't have said that better myself! :) everytime i hear that song i automatically CRY.

    Re: blahblah12 – DON'T WORRY, CHRISTINA AGUILERA CO-WROTE 18 OUT OF THE 20 SONGS ON HER STRIPPED ALBUM.
    WHY PEOPLE THINK SHE DOESN'T WRITE HER OWN MUSIC IS BEYOND ME.
    SHE IS INVOLVED IN EVERY SINGLE ASPECT IN CREATING HER MUSIC.

    Weren't you just knocking Christina the other day. * Side Eye *



  27. 27

    CHRISTINA



  28. 28

    I would like to hear Courtney screaming from the inside of a coffin 6' under



  29. 29

    sucha beautiful song… only for the BEST voice



  30. 30

    Linda Perry is wise in all things. She gave Courtney chance after chance to benefit from working with her, at Mrs. Cobain just couldn't get her shit together. ANYBODY could be brilliantly successful with a Linda Perry song! I wish she'd just make her OWN comeback.



  31. 31

    it must have hurt accept something good about xtina, te debió doler aceptar algo bueno de christina LOCO



  32. 32

    Team Christina on this song.



  33. 33

    Damn, there were a fuckton of people that wanted this song. Lord, didn't P!NK want it too?



  34. 34

    buy woohoo on itunes now



  35. 35

    I agree…Beautiful is Xtina's song no matter what.



  36. 36

    Beautiful is Christina's best song ever….and she sounds great….love her…..
    Linda Perry noticed her talent,and the talentless bitches like Pink got totally angry with this fact



  37. 37

    I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR COURTNEY TO A COVER OF "BEAUTIFUL." I LIKE THAT XTINA DID IT FIRST, BUT I THINK COURTNEY COULD DO A SWEET VERSION OF IT IN HER OWN STYLE.



  38. 38

    personally, I'D like to hear someone sing songs THEY WROTE. Thats why pop is pop. Its not art. Christina, Brit, etc are not artists. Theyre pop singers.



  39. 39

    So where's the punch line? And what happened to 'Clonetina'? Did gaga shout at you for drawing all that negativity her way Perez? Just curious…….



  40. 40

    wow yes i would have loved to hear that! i was at courtneys recent show in glasgow and that would have been such an amazing moment! it would have made that songmy favourite in the world!



  41. 41

    I find it HILL-A-RIOUS that she says she has never wanted a song that was written solely by anyone else! Ask Billy from Smashing Pumpkins about that one!



  42. 42

    If "Beautiful" hadn't been given to Christina I would have probably killed myself so, best choice!



  43. 43

    oh god imagine if britney or coutney sang it!! id would only be have the song it is without christina's vocals!!

  44. @v@ says – reply to this


    44

    Courtney would have interpreted it Hole style. Imagine Jagger's version.
    She would have done it justice; a different kind of justice. I think Christina's version made the writer more money as hers would get more airplay. I probably would prefer Courtney's version.

    the songs courtney writes are a million trillion billion times better than any other female songwriter. she didn't write meaningless dance songs or bad love songs, all of courtney's songs were self-reflective. she always used this weird form of sarcasm when she'd sing about the shallow and bad people of the world. She'd sing about rape victims who were "asking for it" and she'd ask the questions "is she pretty on the inside? Is she pretty from the back?" courtney's recordings from the early to mid 1990's really reflect her way of thinking and I've never heard/seen a more talented female artist. she's a feminist, rock star, a poet, and an absolutely brilliant woman.



  46. 46

    oh honey no.
    Christina was def. the best choice.



  47. 47

    Christina Aguilera tried calling herself X-tina - What ever happened to that failed promotion? She was always trying, stretching, reaching, but now Aguilera waited too long. She took time off from work - a seriously long time. I enjoyed Aguilera's career, her music was as catchy as her battles with Brittany Spears, but Christina stopped performing, stopped making appearances, and now she is simply a singer behind the times. Sure Christina can pretend to be shocking, professional, hip, and she can even pretend to be sexy, but future performers have edged her out. I really wish her well. Hope Christina can find another successful career path. But for now, Christina Aguilera is as bankable as Whitney Houston. Now I am under the impression that American Idol has an opening to fill - Maybe Simon and Christina can work out a deal with American Idol and fill that empty space in the Idol void.

    Christina Aguilera of all people should have known that crowds can be unreliable. As Marilyn Manson once said in his song, Dope Show, "They (fans) love you when you are on all the covers. When you are not, they love another."
