Love's Second Thoughts On Britney Collaboration

COURTNEY LOVE's proposed collaboration with BRITNEY SPEARS is under threat - the rocker is unsure whether the pop star could interpret her lyrics correctly.

The former HOLE frontwoman, who has just finished recording her debut solo album AMERICA'S SWEETHEART, commented last month (JUN03) she was considering giving some of her surplus material to Britney, who is attempting to revamp her squeaky-clean image on her upcoming LP.

However, despite being turned onto the idea by her song-writing partner LINDA PERRY - who has worked with CHRISTINA AGUILERA and PINK - Love is scared of her lyrics being misinterpreted by the 21-year-old.

She explains, "I'm looking for new artists to write for. Linda tells me Britney is looking for some rock. She passed on it. I'm thinking I probably would too.

"Not to be snobby but what's the point of giving up my lyrics to someone who may not give a s***?

"I remember doing TOP OF THE POPS (British music show) with ALL SAINTS covering (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS' drug lament) UNDER THE BRIDGE. Those girls thought it was a love song and didn't care and hadn't asked. That freaks me out."
