Yes, and in the immortal words of Chrissie Hynde, which I posted earlier in Female Rockers:

She once drew up a list of 10 commandments to budding "chick rockers." Number six: "Don't think that sticking your boobs out and trying to look fuckable will help. Remember you're in a rock and roll band. It's not 'fuck me,' it's 'fuck you'!"

Courtney has so taken that to the Nth degree.
I used to love Courtney in the late 80's up until about 95. I am now in awe of her again after seeing her on Letterman last week. I really do like the way she says "whore" in that growl.
I've only heard a few songs from her new album and they were like Hole used to be. I want to be whatever she's on...
I am living for her every move. who gives news conferences in the toilets???


Love's court gig a show-stopper
By BARBARA ROSS and DAVE GOLDINER
DAILY NEWS STAFF WRITERS


Courtney Love explains her dissatisfaction with a court artist's sketch as the rocker is besieged by reporters yesterday outside Manhattan Criminal Court.

Grunge goddess Courtney Love kept her shirt on for once - but still did her best to turn a lower Manhattan courthouse into her own personal mosh pit.
The breast-baring raunch rocker spawned a roiling crowd of reporters, bummed a half-smoked cigarette from a passerby and chastised a sketch artist for an unflattering portrait.

She even held a rambling news conference in the ladies room.

Almost as an afterthought, Love briefly answered charges that she beaned a fan with a microphone stand during an East Village gig.

"The police have a conspiracy against rocker chicks," Love told arresting officers after the March 18 concert at Plaid nightclub on E. 13th St. near Broadway, court papers revealed.

The widow of Nirvana legend Kurt Cobain faces assault and endangerment charges for allegedly tossing the mike that hit Gregory Burgett, 24, of London, Ky.

Fresh off a red-eye flight from Los Angeles, Love showed up two hours late for the routine hearing at Manhattan Criminal Court and fought her way through 50 reporters and photographers.

The 39-year-old ranted about her financial woes and issued an out-of-the-blue apology to actor Russell Crowe for failing to return his calls. "That would've been a hot date," she said.

After Judge Kathryn Freed told Love to return to court next month, the mascara-loving rocker headed for the bathroom, where she held court for an impromptu gathering of female reporters.

She bitterly denounced a married ex-boyfriend. "This is God saying you do not sleep with married men," Love quipped before a court officer cut short the stall-side confab.

Out on the courthouse steps, Love sipped on a soda and said she had to touch up a sketch artist's rendition of her.

"Come on, I'm much prettier than that," said Love, adding longer eyelashes and hair to the drawing.

Before hopping in a limo for the ride back to her apartment a few blocks away, she talked a passerby into handing her the remains of a cigarette.

"If I'm addicted to anything, it's nicotine," Love said.

Cannot get over the cognitive dissonance of these dames... Can you really be THAT stoned? Guess so! Like former Bunny Anna Nicole on her TV show, shamelessly broad in the beam and relentlessly moronic... like that blow-dried-out Farrah Fawcett babbling like a monkey and nodding out on talk shows. Don't they SEE themselves? I'm impressed by the sadism of the cameramen.
Not to mention that of the publicists who handle these women.

I guess the continuing humiliation is so intense they stay on drugs and try, try not to know what they look or sound like. Her suffering is obvious. No-one is taking care of her. As a crazed sex-clown she might be hilarious, but underneath it all is tragedy, to wit, her carrying on about losing custody of her daughter. Not exactly a laugh riot when you think of the girl.
COURTNEY WANTED IN LA ASSAULT
(3 days ago?
Los Angeles
"Prosecutors charged rock bad girl Courtney Love with felony assault with a deadly weapon and issued a warrant for her arrest... Love allegedly attacked a woman with a bottle and flashlight during at April 25 party at the home of...etc. The TV show, 'Celebrity Justice' identified Love's alleged target as Kristin King."

Then what happened?
Courtney surrendered to police on the felony flashlight charge and is due in court july 9 (I think) to answer the charges. Here is a thingie of it all on E: Courtney arrested for felony flashlight assault

Actually, fabo
Courtney did not know the woman she assaulted (Kristen King). It just happened that Courtney showed up at an ex-beau's house (Jim Barber) and this other girl singer, Ms. King, was there. Courtney knows how to hold a grunge grudge, and evidently a bottle and a flashlight too).

Courtney is so cooleo!!! I still love dem lips... you keep ROCKIN and DROPPIN girl!
Courtney and Mike Tyson sittin in a dumpster
H-U-F-F-I-N-G. First comes incoherence, then comes fisticuffs, then comes subpoenas in a squad carrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr !

I actually like her fierceness, and her out of control act is very self-conscious. I can take a certain amount of self-destruction when it is done as an art form like she do it. The best aspect is how no camera can really contain it, and that is what makes seeing her on teevee so gorgeous, kind of reminds me of Mick Jagger on stage at an arena show -so much hyper dyskenesia it can't be contained. Obviously she ain no exactly responsible mom so its fine her daughter is not in her custody. That's just life baby, deal wit it. Her behavior is so pathological in its typification of the slut goddess but there always seems to be a spark of smartness left in her brain. She's a slightly different brand of celebrity who has cornered the felony angle on it all, and of course she is after negative opinion. If she ends up dead that will be pathetic of course, but now, wavering between being boreing and almost-not-quite-brilliant the ho is in a (Messy Bonnie Raitt)class of her own. And at the very least, she's got the estrogen to put up her realness, which is what so scandalizes all other celebs who then are exposed for being the totally artificial dickless wonders they really are.

It is just a flat out insult everytime some PufDiddy or Sandra Bernhardt appears on a talk show acting amiable and civil and trying to pass as respectable when off camera they are flashing Glocks in a club or tripping over their hangovers on Fifth Avenue. At least Love isn't a fake.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, COURTNEY!

How crappy of a birthday can this be? On her 40th Birthday yesterday, Courtney had to be rushed to the hospital. To top it all off, she was supposed to appear in court! Now the judge wants to throw the book at her! Yikes, what is this world coming to???
Here, read all about it at E!: Courtney Hospitalized on her Birthday

Hey, Courtney, you are America's Sweetheart - keep ROCKIN!
Bless her heart. I think she is reinventing the Russian novel. Or maybe going to outdo both Nancy Spungeon AND Sid all rolled in to one. At the very least she has now found out that national media outlets are a far better guarantee of massive exposure than any old music gig she could do or even an academy award-type movie performance. Ten years from now the Olsen twins will be playing her in a movie biography. Any suggestions for titles? "Hole Lotta Love?"
"Well, let's see, America. Can I stop taking pills?" Love asked reporters outside the courthouse, noting that she has been in rehab since returning to California late last week. "I've got to stop drinking. This is funny. I mean, it's not funny at all. It's profound. It's deep. But I wanted to know if you think I can do it. I think I can do it. Can you do it? Can we all do it? OK."

Courtney Love Sentenced To Rehab
07.28.2004


Courtney Love appears in court on Tuesday

Courtney Love was sentenced to mandatory rehab on Tuesday, resolving one of the four criminal cases against her.

After surrendering on Friday, the singer made her first public appearance in a Los Angeles courtroom since a warrant was issued for her arrest on July 9. She was hospitalized later that day (see "Courtney Love Hospitalized After Missing Court Date").

Judge Patricia Schnegg ordered Love to enroll in a court-approved rehab program for a term of at least six months, as part of a plea agreement negotiated in May for changing her plea to guilty to a misdemeanor charge of being under the influence of cocaine and opiates, stemming from an incident last October (see "Courtney Love Rushed To Hospital For Drug OD Following Arrest"). Love must enroll in the program by October 29.

She will also be on probation for 36 months, though Deputy City Attorney Jerry Baik said that Love can petition the court to dismiss the case after 18 months. If she completes the program successfully and abides by the terms of her probation, the conviction will be removed from her record. "We believe that this was the ultimate, the best outcome for her personally, as well as what we were looking for in this particular [case]," Baik said.

During Love's probation, she'll be required to submit to random drug testing and undergo substance-abuse counseling. She'll be permitted to travel, but will be barred from taking non-prescription drugs, drinking alcohol, or being in places that serve alcohol, except for work-related engagements.

"Well, let's see, America. Can I stop taking pills?" Love asked reporters outside the courthouse, noting that she has been in rehab since returning to California late last week. "I've got to stop drinking. This is funny. I mean, it's not funny at all. It's profound. It's deep. But I wanted to know if you think I can do it. I think I can do it. Can you do it? Can we all do it? OK."

Love also told reporters that she had been unaware that she was considered a fugitive for failing to show up for her arraignment on July 9.

"Do you guys think that maybe these court dates are a little much?" she asked. "It's kind of a lot to juggle."

Love's lawyer Michael Rosenstein told reporters outside the courthouse that the singer has been undergoing drug treatment in Connecticut since after her hospitalization in New York. He said she began drug rehab during that hospital stay and was relocated to continue treatment. She also underwent a stint in rehab last November.

"She's been working with these issues for quite some time, before it was imposed by the court," Rosenstein said. "Now, there's been court imposition of drug rehabilitation, and I feel confident with the Courtney that was before us today, having the three, four weeks of sobriety, and being on top of things. Let there be no mistake "” she's in treatment currently and she's sober currently and will continue to be."

Love is due back in court on Thursday to face separate charges of felony drug possession. She's also scheduled to be arraigned on August 20 for yet another charge, felony assault with a deadly weapon, and she's due back in court in New York on September 7 for assault and reckless-endangerment charges.

Love's tour, which had been postponed due to her legal troubles, is scheduled to resume on August 1 in Fiji, Japan.

Da Girl Can't Help It!

Courtney's father, Hank Harrison, was the road manager for The Grateful Dead for 7 years. Hence, when Courtney was a little girl, she was constantly being dragged off to DeadHead concerts. The drugging, the pill popping, the binge drinking - all were introduced to Courtney by her father at DeadHead concerts. Hey, no wonder Courtney is so bewildered about quitting booze and pills and smack - this fabulous lady was weaned on the stuff.. Long live Sex and Drugs and Rock 'N Roll!
