Courtney And Mariah Together? It Nearly Happened!
Courtney Love nearly duetted with Mariah Carey on the new Hole album.
This highly unlikely collaboration almost happened when the pair were at video director Brett Ratner’s house.
At the time, Love was looking for someone to sing one line with her on the record. Then, as she told Spinner:
“I’m at his house and I sing the part: ‘People like you fuck people like me.’ And this little voice goes: ‘I’ll sing it.’ I’m like: ‘Who’s that?’ The voice goes: ‘It’s Mariah.’
“It was hysterical. I never met Mariah for more than a minute in my life, but we sort of cancelled each other out. We had nothing negative about each other to say. I’m not in her universe and she’s not in mine.”
So, the new Hole album – Nobody’s Daughter – will come out minus what would have been an amazing/ludicrous (or both) collaboration.
Hole will make their live debut with the new line-up in London at Shepherd’s Bush Empire on February 17.
