Rising rapper Peaches turned down the chance to work with pop princess Britney Spears, because she thought her input would be "watered down".

The hip-hop star was approached to spice up Spears' upcoming new album, but Peaches wasn't convinced her contribution would survive intact - so she's teamed up with pop vixen Pink instead.

She explains, "I thought, 'What can I write for her that they're not gonna water down?'"

Of her collaboration with Pink on the track OH MY GOD, Peaches explains, "(Pink) said, 'This needs you on it!' I was psyched."
