Courtney Love on VH1

So much like Miley Cyrus's 'Can't Be Tamed' Outfit, Right? Are black feathers quintessentially 2010?

“They begged me to get an abortion … I was like seriously, suck it.”

“I didn’t ask to be hated, I just don’t mind being a bitch.”

These and many other Courtney Love quotes on VH1. 

We’ve talked a bunch about our mixed feelings about her, and the clips I’ve seen so far don’t sway me one way or the other. She just seems super damaged to the point of scariness — sometimes in a wow! way and sometimes in an eek, run! way.

    i watched it totally captivated, and yeah i still don’t know how i feel about her; “meh,” her music was awesome in the early 90’s but how much girl power can you profess to while doing drugs and getting into knock out fights? she still seems really self-absorbed

  2. The documentary, I thought, was very well done. One quote that stood out to me: “My brand is crazy bitch.” This kind of sums up my reluctance — then and now — to embrace a lot of what was going on in the 90s, musically, culturally, whatever. And I’ve followed more than my share of “damaged artists,” but wearing like a badge of honor was such a turn-off for me. Mostly I blame the media for perpetuating that image, but at 18 or 19 I don’t know if I was savvy enough to recognize it.

    (Of course you could say the same thing about Britney Spears, circa 2007.)

    I love Courtney; always have, always will. Don’t love her brand of parenting or a lot of the choices she’s made, but hey, I didn’t have her childhood and I sure as hell haven’t been accused of murdering the love of my life for the past 16 years or so by every ignorant twat with a conspiracy theory.
    She’s always owned up to her own special brand of batshit crazy and that’s something I admire in this world of hypocrisy.

    saw her play in DC. judging by that hideous performance, her drug and alcohol treatments haven’t been terribly successful.
