Had she promoted it, it would have been her biggest hit since 2002’s ‘Beautiful’, but much like its predecessor ‘Your Body‘- Christina Aguilera‘s Country ballad ‘Just A Fool’ failed to receive a push worthy of its potential.
Now, in what will undoubtedly come as a surprise to her ever loyal fans, tonight saw its writer Claude Kelly reveal that the cut wasn’t written for the ‘Glam’ singer and was in fact penned for her long time chart rival, Pink.
It was actually for P!nk. then went to Adam. I love where it ended up thoRT @aintnootherfan1: Just A Fool was originally for AdamLambert?

Sharing the above upon being quizzed on it on Twitter this evening, Claude’s revelation will come as interesting news fans of both stars.
For, while we’re sure Pink would have done more for the cut as far as pushing it to the masses go, it’s safe to say Christina’s voice coupled with Claude’s genius and Shelton’s tone made the cut what it is.
It’s for this reason that we’re glad Camp Aguilera picked up the cut, which serves as one of the many highlights on her latest album, ‘Lotus‘.
In saying that, here’s hoping a demo of Pink’s version exists to give their respective fan bases the duet they’ve been calling for for years, even if it does mean take studio wizardry to make it happen.
