The Longest Courtney Love Interview Ever


The addiction and recovery magazine, The Fix sent out a guy to interview Courtney Love. Over the course of 8 months he interviewed her many times and then wrote it all down. I mean all of it. Apparently the original length of the interview was 100,000 words and the guy got it down to 5,000 words which is still really long.

It seems like the guy really wants to kiss Courtney's ass and tries to say nice things about her all the time but her actions ruin it for the guy everytime. Whether it is showing up for a concert so late that the 10,000 people who had been there are no longer, to the mountains of new designer clothing, shoes and lingerie that she buys like an addict, but then complains she has no money.

Nothing is spared, including her discussion about Kurt Cobain and how Courtney started using Valium at 8. She also says there are many drugs she has not tried. Umm, not so sure I believe her. This interview is Courtney Love and if you can get by the claim that Nirvana should be played only on Oldies stations while Hole is still relevant and that Hole's debut album was entirely the work of Courtney, then it can be interesting reading. Very, very long interesting reading.

She keeps it interesting! Have to give her that. And it's truly an excellent interview. I read the whole thing and look forward to part 2 tomorrow.

Oh, I'm definitely reading this later. Courtney is walking comedy gold. I read an interview were she bullied one of her assistant into GIVING her a pair of Louboutins and the interviewer described it like The Wicked Witch Of The West stealing a pair of ruby slippers that were two sizes too small for her.

Courtney is a master manipulator. I believe about 25 percent of what comes out of her mouth. At best.

I'm so over Courtney Love. I think she's toxic to everyone around her.

bluebonnetmom said...

I agree Rocket Queen.

I'll be reading it too. Yeah, she's a complete nutcase and she's definitely hiding some shit, but I've found her fascinating ever since that first Rolling Stone interview where the guy came to interview Kurt and she hi-jacked the whole thing and the article ended up being about her. It was glorious. And "Live Through This", no matter who wrote it, was a great album. There, I said it. Big whoop.

Julie said...

Holes debut album, pretty on the inside, was mostly by c.love, collab with Eric, and Caroline.

So, that in fact, is true. If you're assuming live through this was mainly written by Kurt, like everyone suggests... There were like 2 or 3 songs he worked on. Half of the material was written before Courtney knew Kurt, and even before Billy Pumpkinhead.

I get that people are over her. But no need to keep slandering. I've always stuck up for her. I'm not going to stop. Yes, she's pissed people off, but even the nicest people piss people off.

And yes, I have met her.

awesome balla. said...

just read the interview (pt 1 only btw, pt 2 tomorrow). not knowing much about courtney love, i found it very interesting. she is very open and reflective.

@Julie - where's the slander?

"If you're assuming live through this was mainly written by Kurt, like everyone suggests... There were like 2 or 3 songs he worked on. Half of the material was written before Courtney knew Kurt, and even before Billy Pumpkinhead."

Sorry, don't believe you. One doesn't go from "Pretty on the Inside" to "Live Through This"...and incidentally compose JUST LIKE Kurt Cobain!...without an intervention from somebody that is actually musically talented. Let's see, later on it was Billy Corgan, later on Linda Thompson, later on Brodie Dalle.....

Also, if the material was written before she met Kurt, why did it take her 3 years + to release it? And why did she put out an EP before "Live Through This" if she had this absolutely astounding album just laying around?

If she could write another "Live Through This" she would have been dead on it by now.

I do believe she wrote a lot of the lyrics on "Live Through This"...and that's all I'm buying.

There's nothing wrong with collaborating musically with your man, MOST women especially in rock music have done this...but for some reason she desperately wants to be known as a stand-alone talent and she's just not.

I can understand since you've met her that you're a total fangirl, but she lies. I hate to see you get taken in.

@Julie - right on.

And the "Courtney Killed Kurt" stuff is worse to me.

He talked about suicide in almost every interview he gave. He had documented suicide attempts when she was nowhere near him.

She didn't kill him, or hire anyone to do it, or drive him towards it on the basis of being Courtney Love and he wanted to escape her.

That stuff makes no sense to me.

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

Pretty on the Inside was produced by Kim Gordon, and if you know anything about music, you know that album has a Sonic Youth sensibility all over it.

The Nightmare Child said...

What Brendalove & Little Miss Smoke And Mirrors said.


To the T.


Court's a hoot & all, but she can't write her own music to save her life.

Rose said...

"she is very open and reflective."

Open doesn't equal truthful though. I think it's sad that people blamed her for Kurt's suicide. but she had brought on a million of her problems and dropped them on her daughter's lap. Her manipulation wouldn't be so offensive if Frances Bean didn't seem to always get the short end.

I don't know the official terms of slander & libel but it seems like suggesting Britney Spears was molested by her Dad on FB and Ed Norton stealing all her money could fit into one of those.

MCH said...

I just read both parts. It was a good interview. I loved when she said she was on crack and could do math really well and became a whiz at calculus.

REALLY?

I want to know which food star she was with the night she started smoking crack "as a joke"?
