Eighties singer Paul Young has turned down the chance to pen tunes for pop
babe BRITNEY SPEARS - because he claims her music "lacks any credibility".
The WHEREVER I LAY MY HAT hitmaker, 48, admits he was offered a
songwriting contract for Spears and other young stars, but decided against it
on quality grounds.
Young says, "I have been asked about writing modern pop songs for Britney
and the like, but I just can't face writing for people like that, for that
"It lacks any credibility."
