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!
"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??
