"The name Courtney Love is a way to oppress me."

"We've all decided we don't like her any more ... We love her when she goes onstage, but I don't need her in the rest of my life."

But she's not actually changing her name: "In an e-mail to MTV News, a spokesperson for Love wrote that the quote was taken '100 percent out of context.... She's not changing her name, unless it's to "Courtney Love Mellencamp" or "Big Baby Jesus."'"

That's either amusing or really, really tiresome.

Tiresome

Revenant said...

Cocaine is a hell of a drug.

I thought Courtney Love's appeal since the beginning was that she was amusing in a really, really tiresome sort of way?

El Pollo Real said...

I'm surprised that Courtney Love doesn't have a tag at Trooper York yet.

Awesome Rick James drop. Very appropriate.

Methadras said...

Courtney Love's only claim to any real fame is that she married Kurt Cobain, had his baby, and the poor bastard couldn't take her anymore and offed himself with a shotgun in his kitchen. Even her daughter doesn't want to live with her and instead take up the same lifestyle her mother does. American dysfunction in action.

Trooper York said...

Well she does, as I have several posts that relate to her and people who know her in real life.

Trooper York said...

People that know her in real life say she is clean and sober now and very business like these days. More into the internet and social media than drugs and partying and what not.

Maybe she should start a blog. Hee.

Kirstin said...

What about Mike Love or Jennifer Love Hewitt?

Lem said...

The best thing I can say about her is that she's a manipulative witch.

Trooper York said...

That's not fair Lem, she is doing a good job as Secretary of State....what...oh...nevermind.

Lem said...

Say all you want about Hillary... its not like she's driven Bill to suicide.

Courtney Love/Tom Grant ..

Oh wait.. there that Vince Foster fellow.

yikes!

Pogo said...

I generally avoid reading about those who make music i enjoy because inevitably they turn out as screwed up as I am or worse, and then the music is forever tinted if not tainted by that knowledge.

Because Doll Parts is one of my favorite songs, I refuse to click and read about her.

What lyrics!
"i want to be the girl with the most cake
he only loves those things because he loves
to see them break
someday, you will ache like i ache
"

I will instead tell myself that all are found wanting, and I hope her storms pass, and may she see with new eyes one day.

AprilApple said...

She doesn't look like a Courtney Michelle. The name is too dainty for her brazen exterior and tough bravado.
How about-- Courtney Chainsaw?
-or- Courtney Hole Crazy Train?

Actually, she doesn't look like a Courtney.
How about-- Spitfire Lucy.

paul a'barge said...

Does all of this imply that John Cougar is tapping that?

Lem said...

I will instead tell myself that all are found wanting..

Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Amy Winehouse.

I cheated myself
Like I knew I would
I told ya, I was trouble
You know that I'm no good
..

Its painfull when I look.

Eric said...

I never understood her appeal. The music, well, to each his own. But as a person, as a celebrity, she's only interesting in the same way a train wreck is interesting.

lol.

The Crack Emcee said...

Tired?

If Ann (or the rest of you "music lovers") paid any attention to Rap, she'd know the "Big Baby Jesus" joke was a reference was to the Wu-Tang Clan, and the late Ol' Dirty Bastard's habit of changing his name.

And she also would've done a post for Gang Starr's late rapper, Guru, probably one of the nicest, most sensitive, and articulate guys in Rap.

It's a pity, sometimes, to read someone so blinkered regarding music.

Slow Joe said...

Actually, Courtney Harrison (Love) shares a lot of characteristics and friends with George W Bush and is a famous republican.

crack emcee is still being an asshole, 'eh?

What a shock. yes, how dare people not do everything Crack Emcee thinks they should do. They are just terrible!

Ann Althouse said...

So, Crack, I should feel like I'm not doing a good enough job because I don't follow rap? That's just absurd!

Aurelian said...

Think I'll get some popcorn while this unfolds.

And you a law professor ;)

Fen said...

I think this is why some us weren't real sympathetic re Micheal Douglas. We're tired of every Hollyweird instance being spotlighted as something important.

Thousands of common people deal with their problems everyday without turning it into a spectacle.

Its pledge week at Idol.

Take out your wallets.

Lem said...

Capt Sully on Idol?

Gosh.. where is Trooper when you need him?

Lem said...

Notice the Black Eye Peas girl doesn't get one of those pitch altering mikes..

Whats up with that Althouse?.. you got a sister not getting equal treatment ;)

Lem said...

Not to mention the way they made her dress.

nttiawwt ;)

Mike said...

I live the Big Baby Jesus drop - I never expected Courtney Love was an Old Dirty Bastard or Wu-Tang clan fan

Lem said...

If the Idols were a little older tonight they could do a remake of The Andromeda Strain (1971).

Slow Joe said...

Crack Emcee keeps it real.

You know that because of the rapping.

Lem said...

Alicia Keys had no voice tonight..

Still, shes a pro... and cute too.

Lem said...

Annie Lennox is not HIV positive.

Lem said...

The volcano must have kept her in London.

Jeff with one 'f' said...

We could call her by her spiritual name: Yoko.

Chip Ahoy said...

Do you know what this reminds me of? The great Battenburg disaster, that's what. Hang on. Just realized, there's no connection at all. Sorry.

Wow. I used to sort of like her. I haven't watched that stuff in a million years. just clicked on two of the videos - Miss World and Malibu.

AWFUL. Just terrible. I'm embarrassed I used to like it.

I've become so used to women that can sing, I guess. At the time, I was just looking for any female in a band with attitude.

She really was more of a pre-blogger that could take it 3-D than anyone with musical talent per say.

BTW, she's had a blog for years. She's as drug addicted as ever- just read her twitter rants. Even if she quit after her daughter left, it'll take years for her brain to repattern - and it probably never will after so many decades of abuse.

Imagine being John Cougar Mellencamp and you wake up one morning and Courtney Love Mellencamp is in bed.


That would suck.
