Last week, we got to see some photos of Courtney Love at the NYC premiere of Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. Courtney looked… refreshed. Dewy. Clean. Lucid. Almost pretty. For someone who had spent most of the year looking like this, it was quite a turnaround. My guess for the appearance turnaround was some subtle nips and tucks, plus several scorching hot showers (to kill the scabies) plus better hair plus good makeup plus no drugs. But it seems like I was wrong (not really). Courtney tells Us Weekly that she looked so good last week because she’s been chanting. And doing yoga. And she dyed her hair. Yes, I totally believe her.
Courtney Love turned heads Sept. 20 in a gorgeous crimson Calvin Klein dress at the NYC premiere of Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and the following day in a slinky silver dress at the New Yorkers For Children gala. It was a stark contrast from the Hole rocker’s usual grunge look.
Blogs were abuzz that she underwent a “stem-cell face-lift,” which involves taking fat from a person’s lower body, processing it and then injecting it into the face to make the person look younger.
The Hole rocker, 46, slams the rumors, telling UsMagazine.com she is simply taking better care of herself. First change: She darkened her hair to “look more natural,” she tells Us. To stay toned, she says she’s been regularly “running and doing anti-gravity yoga.”
She credits most of her healthy glow from surrounding herself with the right people.
“I used Tony Robbins’ concerto of modeling from people who are good influences on me,” she tells Us. “I try to keep the negative people out of my life.”
Most important: “No prescription meds!” says Love, who claims she is drug-free after a long battle that left her nearly suicidal and in rehab several times.
These days, Love tells Us she is in better shape and hoping to improve relations with her daughter. The key?
“I’m in a love thing,” she told Us. “Loving myself, foremost – trying anyway – and chanting as always.”

Lying bitch. Of course, I don’t know for sure what she did. Maybe it really was the chanting. CoughcoughHAHAcough. Maybe it was the stem cell face-lift. Maybe it was drinking stem cells with her nightly liter of vodka. Maybe it was a blowtorch to her old crack-skin. Maybe it was the cocaine cut with baby tears. F-ck, I don’t know. But she does look good, so I guess she should keep “chanting.”
Here’s a photo of Courtney from May:
And from February. Must have been the chanting.
