Courtney Love Is The Subject Of New Fashion Blog. Courtney Love was a fashion icon for about five minutes when she cleaned herself up circa 1997 and became the face of Versace and covered Harper’s Bazaar. But for the most part, she’s just bizarre. But with a new fashion blog, she’s hoping to get back to her red carpet heyday. Love launched a new blog, What Courtney Wore Today, to show that while she’s a mess, she’s well dressed. The purpose of the blog is reportedly to try and clean up her image and show off her fashionable side yet again. The blog is chockfull of extremely blurry camera phone pictures of Love in get-ups by designers like Prada, Givenchy, Lanvin, Valentino, Balmain, and more. Only Courtney Love can make these designers look grungy. Love’s imagine only became worse as reports of her behavior at shows on her current tour, in support of Hole’s latest album “Nobody’s Daughter,” said that she wasn’t performing up to par and also spewing racist remarks. While What Courtney Wore Today will continue to feature the singer’s daily designer ensembles, I imagine a What Courtney Said Today blog would be more popular.
Artwork by Kurt Cobain’s Daughter Shown in L.A. The daughter of the ill-fated father of grunge, Frances Bean Cobain, 17, has a new show of her drawings at La Luz De Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles. The child of Kurt Cobain and troubled rocker Courtney Love, Frances Cobain’s subject matter runs from dark to grotesque in a collection of works titled “Scumf-ck.” The show’s 8 black and white drawn compositions features a series of obese and pointedly ugly charicatures, either tattooed or captioned with slogans like “life sucks” or “I don’t give a sh-t,” the Huffington Post reported. The centerpiece of the collection is a portrait of punk anti-hero GG Allin, who battled a heroin addiction, like Kurt Cobain, but is revered in punk circles for rejecting commercial success. Frances Bean Cobain’s show hangs under the pseudonym “Fiddle Tim.” The precocious 17-year-old is legally emancipated from her mother, Courtney Love, who has famously and publicly dealt with her own substance abuse problems. The two have been estranged since December of 2009, reports People, but Courtney offered her daughter’s artistic venture praise via Twitter: “I think it is astonishing & considering her chemistry its a good thing. What if she had to keep all those demons bottled up?” “I adore my daughter and miss her,” Courtney wrote. “But that scumf-ck stuff is cool.”

Courtney Love had sex with Kate Moss . The Hole singer says she and the supermodel had a fling in Milan, Italy, in the 90s but is adamant Kate won’t care about her lesbian revelations. She told Irish magazine Hot Press: ‘It was Kate Moss. She doesn’t care. It’s a great story for the grandchildren, so yeah. Kate wasn’t doing a lot of drugs it was just a thing that happened in Milan in the 90s. ‘It happened and it was fun and whatever. And she talks about it and so I hope she doesn’t get mad that I outed her about it. ‘I feel like such a kiss and tell. Kate’s great, though! Kate’s a good friend of mine. I almost bought her house in St John’s Wood, London.’ Both Kate and Courtney have had tempestuous love lives. Kate, 36, is currently dating The Kills guitarist Jamie Hince, and has previously romanced Johnny Depp and troubled singer Pete Doherty. Courtney is best known for her marriage to Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, who killed himself in April 1994. She also dated Gavin Rossdale prior to his marriage to No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani. Discussing Gavin, she said: ‘Me and Gavin dated for eight months, but never when they were engaged. He was playing the field. One night Gavin made roast chicken and it was really, really good. And then we snogged and he was really good at it. He’d improved vastly from the last time we’d snogged.’ She is currently in a relationship with hotelier Andre Balazs and is said to have ‘hit the roof’ last week when he began chatting to a business partner on a night out. A source said: ‘Andre was stopped by a woman he knew. As soon as he started talking to her, Courtney hit the roof. It was obvious to everyone that the woman was a business associate, but not to Courtney. She acted like a toddler!’
Singer, songwriter, actress. Born Courtney Michelle Harrison on July 9, 1964, in San Francisco, California. Outspoken, brash, and sometimes out of control, Courtney Love has become one of alternative rock’s most fascinating figures. She is the widow of legendary Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain as well as an accomplished solo artist in her own right. Love, however, has made more headlines for her outrageous exploits than her talent. Her parents—Hank Harrison, an associate of the Grateful Dead and Linda Carroll, a therapist—divorced when she was only five years old. Raised by her mother, Love lived in a commune for several years. She then spent time in a reform school in her early teens for shoplifting and became a stripper at the age of 16, according to an article in Stella magazine. While living in Oregon, she befriended Kat Bjelland. After a few attempts at college, Love spent a lot of time traveling the world, visiting places such as Japan, Ireland, and even Liverpool where she met a musician named Julian Cope and moved in with him, becoming a regular face at his gigs. She funded her travels with money she received from her grandmother and from working as a stripper. The relationship didn’t last and Love eventually returned to America. Love joined up with old friend Bjelland, forming the all-female punk trio Sugar Baby Doll with Jennifer Finch. Love and Bjelland developed their trademark fashion style around this time, appearing on stage in babydoll dresses, heavy make-up, and with messy hair. The band split up after Bjelland kicked Love out of the group. Finch went on to become the bassist in L7, another female-driven alternative rock group. Later Love and Bjelland reunited to create Babes in Toyland in 1987 with Lori Barbero on drums. But soon Love was pushed out by Bjelland. In addition to music, Love tried acting. She caught the attention of film director Alex Cox in 1986 who decided to cast her in a small role in Sid and Nancy. The film told the story of punk music’s most famous star-crossed lovers, Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious and his lover Nancy Spungen, which starred Gary Oldman and Chloe Webb. Sid and Nancy wasn’t a success but Love persisted with her acting career with another of Cox’s ventures, Straight To Hell, the following year, but this was even more of a flop, going straight to DVD. Living in Los Angeles, Love started to take music more seriously, learning to become a better guitar player. She founded her own band Hole in 1989 with Eric Erlandson after he replied to an ad she placed for musicians. They then brought in Jill Emery on bass and Caroline Rue on drums. Soon the group was making waves in the underground music scene with such singles as “Dicknail” and “Retard Girl.” Produced by Don Fleming of Gumball and Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth, Hole’s debut album, Pretty on the Inside (1991), attracted some critical attention in England. Love soon began to meet and befriend more influential musicians such as Michael Stipe of REM and Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins.

Lily Allen And Courtney Love Clash At NME Awards. Reports are claiming that on Wednesday night at the NME Awards in London singers Lily Allen and Courtney Love came to blows in a public screaming match that ended in them being pulled apart. Witnesses to the catfight say the chat began amicably but soon became “nasty and aggressive.” Onlookers have also said that they heard Love calling Allen “a little girl” and that the British singer was then ushered out in tears. The argument continued over Love’s twitter page as she said: “I don’t know one human being that likes this person. I just don’t get it. She’s on a diet of Haterade and cat hiss and self loathing.” Allen took to her micro-blogging page to tweet her side of the story: “just clearing a couple of things up. Courtney Love and I did NOT have a bust up at the NME’S. There was an exchange of words, yes. She’s upset because she has got it into her head that I put a lock on some dresses for the Brit awards. She’s made no secret of this and, when I saw her at the NME’S she tried to talk to me and I told her to shut up stop spreading stupid rumors about me and that’s pretty much it. I would never fight with her, as a rule I don’t pick on crazy old ladies.”
Courtney Love’s Band Hole To Release “Nobody’s Daughter” In April. Despite the legal dramas in her life, Courtney Love has still managed to make an album with her band Hole. “Nobody’s Daughter” will be released by Mercury/IDJ in April. The 45-year-old rocker says the album took five years to finish, adding to SPIN magazine that she relied on “the kindness of strangers” just to complete the project. The “strangers” are said to be her former collaborators, including Linda Perry, Billy Corgan, and producer Michael Beinhorn, who have all since distanced themselves from the project. According to the magazine, Beinhorn quit after almost a year due to Love’s “fragmented focus,” saying Kurt Cobain’s widow had a lot of personal issues that “made it impossible to do the sort of work that I wanted.” “Nobody’s Daughter” is Love’s first album since “America’s Sweetheart” in 2004 and Hole’s first release since “Celebrity Skin” in 1998. Since then, Hole’s line-up has been changed. Joining Love are new members guitarist Micko Larkin, bassist Shawne Dailey, and drummer Stuart Fisher. The album will be released April 27.

“We had all kinds of grand ideas,” Bono said onstage at Carnegie Hall, early in an October 4th concert honoring Irish singer-songwriter-provocateur Gavin Friday. Bono was recalling his teenage years in Dublin, running through the streets with Friday and the future members of their bands, U2 and Friday’s tribal punk surrealists the Virgin Prunes. “We invented these great events in our imagination,” Bono went on, noting that Friday, at one point actually had the temerity to say, “Why don’t we all play Carnegie Hall?” They had to wait awhile, until Friday’s 50th birthday (officially on October 8th), but it was worth it. Dubbed “An Evening With Gavin Friday and Friends” and curated with eclectic bravura by Hal Willner, the show — presented by the charitable foundation (RED), with proceeds going to fight AIDS in Africa — was a riotous three-hour party, with a to-hell-with-genre rollcall of the many friends Friday has made in his art-rock pop-art film-score and noir-theater travels. Rufus Wainwright, Scarlett Johansson and Saturday Night Live’s Fred Armisen joined Friday for the come-hither cartoon “Mr. Pussy,” from Friday’s 1995 album, Shag Tobacco. (Armisen came out dressed to the purple nines — as Prince.) Friday and falsetto-soul singer Antony duetted on a pair of ballads, including a Memphis-brass-soaked reading of “He Got What He Wanted” from Friday’s 1989 solo debut, Each Man Kills the Thing He Loves. Friday and Virgin Prunes devotee Courtney Love were just on the right side of out-of-control in a pounding version of Magazine’s “The Light Pours Out of Me.” Queen of the post-punk furies Lydia Lunch played the same half of the night as Lady Gaga (who came out in next to nothing — she made Love look demure). And a metal-machine-noise assault by Laurie Anderson (violin), John Zorn (saxophone) and Lou Reed (guitar distortion) eventually resolved into the Velvet Underground’s “Sweet Jane” with Friday, Bono and a cheerfully pickled Shane McGowan of the Pogues trading verses. Bono was not just passing through between stadiums. He, the Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr. were on and off stage half a dozen times; U2’s Friday covers included “I Want to Live” (done with techno drive and Joshua Tree-like space) and the crusted-glam bomb “King of Trash.” Bono also took a solo spot, turning on his Irish Sinatra for the Shag Tobacco elegy “The Last Song I’ll Ever Sing.” The Edge’s brother, guitarist Richard Evans, joined Friday and singer Guggi in a mostly-intact Virgin Prunes reunion (the group broke up in 1987). Their overlapping vocal harangue in “Sweethome Under White Clouds,” with JG Thirwell of Foetus guesting as a third voice, sounded like the Beastie Boys at the End of Days. Other celebrants included Joel Grey, who reprised his most famous role — the emcee in Cabaret — to effortless-knockout effect (Friday is a German-cabaret obsessive), and Irish writer Patrick McCabe. A lover of women’s voices, Friday gave Martha Wainwright the spotlight for “You Made Me the Thief of Your Heart” (originally recorded by Sinead O’Connor for the soundtrack of 1994’s In the Name of the Father) and shared tender mercies and vocal mischief with Andrea Coor and Maria McKee (she and Friday were a saucy delight in “The Ballad of Immoral Earnings” from The Threepenny Opera). The silent star of the evening was composer Maurice Seezer, Friday’s longtime songwriting partner. He finally took a bow at the very end.
But Friday, who always thought he belonged in Carnegie Hall, sang and acted out his lyrics as if he owned the place, swaggering across the boards, gesturing at the stars and jabbing his forefinger at the front rows with a panache that was part opera star, part Dublin punk. “Do we really need these pop stars?/There’s not enough of me!” he crowed in “Caruso,” a dynamic pairing with singer Eric Mingus. It was a song about the power and pleasures of transformation, sung by a man who took on every role in reach tonight — friend, lover, heathen, glitter boy, Irish poet — and was indisputably himself and in control in every one.
