I finally met Courtney Love: Storytime!!!!!

Posted by Courtneyluvfan on February 9, 2016 at 7:15 PM Comments comments (2)

YAY! I have always wanted to meet my idol Courtney Love. I will tell you how I did it going to a low-key fan event.

Well I met her Janurary 2016. It was a party for her clothing line for Nasty Gal store in Hollywood, California. She low-key invited her fans. It was a very last minute event and it was announced on facebook and Instagram.

I was frantic looking for a ride to Hollywood since I don't drive. After calling 10 people, I finally got a ride from a good friend of mine. We left at 3:15 to put gas in the car and I bought some candy.

Then around 4:15pm I arrived in line in front of the Nasty Gal store. There was around 15 fans outside. They people served us free vanilla birthday cake and water it was so sweet of them.

So finally at 5:15pm, they opened the doors. As we enter we got a free tiara. We waited in the line inside 20 people in front of me and Courtney was sitting in her chair with a big diamond necklace on her neck and a lace dress.

The moment I've been waiting for my entire life. I hand her my "Pretty on the inside" cd and she signs it. I wore my babydoll peter pan collar dress and a Hole barette and Courtney complimented me on it. She was so sweet. I gave her a hug as the guy took the selfie.

My opinion is she is a sweet wonderful woman who cares about her fans. This was a once in a lifetime opportunity for me to meet her so I took the chance. :)

Courtney Love is my hero and feminist by Casey O'lear

Courtney Love is my hero. She personifies nearly everything I find admirable in a woman, and certainly everything I find admirable in a rock star.

Casey O'Lear

My interest in Love and her band Hole came about in a strange way. I had never really paid much attention to her until I found myself reading Marilyn Manson’s autobiography, “The Long Hard Road Out of Hell.”

In the book, there’s a small scene in which Manson describes Love bursting onto his tour bus and saying to the girls onboard, “You don’t need to be on this bus. You should get a keyboard and start your own band. Then these guys’ll be on your bus.”

I found this scene so profoundly inspirational that I swiftly picked up Hole’s breakthrough album “Live Through This.”

The record was released in 1994 and is completely ahead of its time in terms of feminist themes.

“Asking for It” brilliantly comments on rape culture with lines like, “Was she asking for it? / Was she asking nice? / If she was asking for it, / Did she ask you twice?”

Hole unfortunately falls into the category of bands whose female musicians are constantly considered good — for girls. In reality, Hole is a great band.

The songs are pleasing to the ear, the lyrics are solid, the political commentary is there and Love’s personality translates into great stage presence.

It’s not just her musical talent that I admire so much. Love is strong, brave and sure of herself.

It’s a good thing she is because, for any woman to attempt to have a successful career in rock ‘n’ roll without polishing up their image or changing their personality, there will be plenty of opposition.

Love has been treated horribly throughout the years. It’s not uncommon for people to call her a bitch, a whore, a hot mess or any number of gender-specific insults. I have become suspicious that everyone who hates Love without a valid reason does so because of some deep-rooted misogyny.

She has done some questionable things over the years, of course. But what rock star hasn’t made some lapses in judgment and publicly embarrassed themselves at some point?

Love has had problems with drug and alcohol abuse and has been open about her sexuality. These are things that are more or less expected of male rock stars — see Ozzy Osbourne and Axl Rose — yet she is somehow judged more harshly.

It’s almost as if she doesn’t care about the double standard we’re trying to enforce over her.

Love has been accused of being a bad mother.

John Lennon admitted to beating his first wife, Cynthia, and having a completely distant relationship with his son, Julian. Bob Marley had at least 11 children from different mothers, and some are not even acknowledged to this day.

These men are still considered seminal geniuses despite the flaws on their records, and rightfully so. The public is not so forgiving to women.

It’s not even uncommon for people to accuse Love of murdering her husband, which offends me the most.

Kurt Cobain struggled with drug addiction just like Love did. But because she was the woman in the family, it was expected that she take care of everyone despite her personal problems.

When Cobain died, Love was expected to care for their young daughter by herself, overcome her own addictions and cope with the death of the love of her life, all in the media spotlight and with Nirvana fans accusing her of murder.

This is why Love is my hero. She is an inspiration to feminism, a balls-to-the-wall rock star and an altogether brave, outspoken and intelligent woman.

We should all be so lucky.

This just must have been such an incredible experience firsthand!

Hell - we're moved just by watching the VIDEO!

So, so COOL!

We have no idea if they will ever do something this special again, but we certainly hope that they will!

Joan Rivers, Kelly Osbourne Disrespect Courtney Love

Posted by Courtneyluvfan on June 8, 2011 at 5:20 PM Comments comments (1)

 

 

 

Young girls don’t idolize Kelly Osbourne, but Love on the other hand has been idolized by

young girls as well as a broader demographic for almost 30 years, and her popularity is

 only growing with a new generation of girls who recently purchased her new album

 “Nobody’s Daughter.” No wonder talentless women who need Love’s demographic feel

 threatened by the fact that Love rejects the type of bourgeoisie culture that is displayed by

 this show “Fashion Police” and yet is still able to maintain popularity with the mainstream

 culture. Actually even though she has tamed herself in terms of her own fashion, Love

was a pioneer in moving the grunge idea forward which openly rejected bourgeoisie

 fashion and embraced the casual wear of the average person.

Rare Seventeen Magazine interview with Courtney Love

Posted by Courtneyluvfan on April 16, 2011 at 6:51 PM Comments comments (207)

Seventeen interview: Courtney Love ,Seventeen Magazine August 2004

“She seems to be fighting a new battle everyday. Now she tells us in her words how her struggles have made her stronger by Holly Eagleson

This past year has not been Courtney Love’s best. After arrests for being under the influence of a controlled substance, assault, and drug possession, the 40 year old widow of Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain apparently overdosed last fall.

These days, Courtney’s more famous for her bad behavior and legal battles. But she’s determined to change all that. Courtney released her solo debut, Americas Sweetheart, in Februrary and now she’s expected to go on a national tour this summer to prove that her life is back on track. But here she tells Seventeen magazine how she plans to try.

Hitting Bottom

“They say in 12 step programs that God doesn’t hand you more than you already take. Lately ive really started to question how much does this guy or this woman think I can take, whoever God is?

 It’s not like ive been a loveable hellion whos had a free ride over the years. But Ive got nothing but crap from the press. And ive had good reviews because I got put out good records and films. But all I get is tabloid press

Gossip Gets Painful

“I took almost 5 years off after my last album. I didn’t do almost anything except raise my child and there was something in the media every week.

The Breaking Point

“Im not depressive. I’m not suicidal. Things are dark. It’s dark when you find out $40 million in Kurt’s assests where stolen from. That’s dark!

Rock And Roll High

“Being famous is just like being in high school. But im not interested in being the cheerleader. I’m not interested in being Gwen Stefani. When it comes down to rock n roll, its just like high school.

So if you’re in high school, and the popular girls are saying you slept with so-and-so-and you did, or maybe you just made out with that guy, and maybe it was a mistake. Either way, don’t let them dictate to you that you’re a slut. Your 17, its your sexuality.

Sweetheart?

“I think I am America’s Sweetheart. Call me delusional-you won’t be the first-but when its just me and my band and the bartender and I’m playing “Free bird”, Il’l probably still think that.

Lessons Learned

“One thing I taught my daughter is to take responsibility to not point fingers. I’ve just been working my ass off. And next year, I’ll be playing massive stadiums.

 Ill get to do whatever movie I want, and then ill win an Oscar! And I wont dedicate it to the National Enquirer!

Hole Reunion

Courtney Love's band Hole gathered for MoMA screening of documentary on group's drummer

By The Associated Press – 3 days ago

NEW YORK, N.Y. — Courtney Love's 1990s rock band Hole will gather publicly for the first time in over a decade.

The group's original members attended the screening of David Ebersole's documentary on former Hole drummer Patty Schemel on Monday at the Museum of Modern Art. The film, "Hit So Hard," is screening as part of the Film Society of Lincoln Center's annual New Directors/New Films series.

Band members Love, Schemel, Eric Erlandson and Melissa auf der Maur sat with Ebersole for a Q&A following the screening.

Hole released three albums in the '90s before splitting up in 2002. Love released a 2010 album, "Nobody's Daughter," under the Hole name. Erlandson disputed that Love could claim the name without his involvement.

 

Perez Hilton talks about Courtney, Kurt and Patty

Clearly, Perez is a huge Hole fan!!!

Peres wrote an amazing article, here it is:

 

Wow. It's amazing that there's still never-before-heard material from him.

A new documentary chronicling the story of former Hole band member Patty Schemel premiered at the SXSW this week, and on top of focusing on the drummer's drug addiction and the deaths of Kurt Cobain and Hole bassist Kristen Pfaff, it also features never-before-seen footage of the late Nirvana frontman performing an unreleased song with then-wife Courtney Love!

Hit So Hard reportedly features home footage of the couple performing the track, called Stinking of You.

Love reportedly explains in the doc:

"Kurt used to hang around us, 'cos he hated his band [Nirvana]."

Furthermore, when the film premieres in New York on March 28th, all original members of Love's band, including Schemel, Melissa Auf de Maur, and Eric Erlandson, are expected to be present.

So cool!

Personally, we're very curious to see this one, partly for this footage of Cobain, but also because frankly, we effing love us some Hole!

What do U think?? Are U interested in the previously unseen footage and music?

 

Thank you Perez for supporting Courtney:D
