The Hole’s lead singer, Courtney Love has share a cover of Britney Spears’ track “Lucky”. This cover is the latest in her Instagram cover series.
Love launched this series last month, releasing a cover of Billy Bragg and Wilco’s “California Stars”. Juliette Jackson from The Big Moon played guitar for this performance.
“Someone asked me what cover I’m going to play next – I don’t have a guitar player handy so…”, the singer wrote on her Instagram post. “Yep. This is… I don’t know. We’ll see. Let’s go through this together”.
“It’s written by one of those fantastic old Swedish people – gentlemen – and it’s got B#7… I don’t know that s***”, she added.
Courtney Love has always strongly voiced her support to Britney Spears as the pop star fights under her conservatorship. She recently wrote on Instagram that she would not return to LA, until Britney Spears was freed from this conservatorship.
Last week, it was confirmed that Britney Spears’ request to remove her father Jamie Spears from this “abusive” conservatorship had been denied by a court in LA.
On June 23, Spears said at a court hearing that she felt controlled by this conservatorship. She claimed that she was prohibited from having more children, getting married or taking out her IUD.
It was confirmed via court documents that this request was denied.
“The conservator’s request to suspend James P. Spears immediately upon the appointment of Bessemer Trust Company of California as sole conservator of estate is denied without prejudice”.

Love then covered the track “Lucky”, which was written by Swedish songwriters Alexander Kronland, Max Martin and Rami Yacoub. This track had featured on Britney Spears’ album “Oops….I Did It Again”, which was released in 2000.
In the middle of singing her rendition of the track, Love burst into tears. “I’m actually crying. I f****** hate this when it happens”, she said in the clip.

Courtney Love also recently shared a previously unseen photo of her late husband Kurt Cobain with their daughter Frances when she was a baby.
“Sometimes the male gaze is everything”, she wrote.
