Courtney Love in London: total disaster or just another day?


These are photos of Courtney Love on Thursday night, in London. Basically, she decided to do this little photo op as soon as she heard that Charlie Sheen was being hospitalized after a decadent 48-hour orgy of cocaine and porn stars with a busted hernia. This is Courtney’s message to Charlie: I’ve been screwed up a lot longer than you.

Courtney may have been screwed up longer than Charlie. He was maintaining some level of public sobriety for years, while Courtney has always been this disaster we see before us. Sure, she’ll have a brief week where she looks almost healthy (for her). And then it will be destroyed with an orgy of drugs and narcissism yoga and chanting.

Oh, and Fame Pictures notes that Courtney was so screwed up in these photos, she got into the wrong car, and the car’s owner had to “eject” her. Classic Courtney. It might even be one of her better days.

    That’s hilarious. I can just hear some polite Brit, “Pardon me, I’m so sorry, but you’re in my car, madam. I’m so sorry.”

    It bothers me that she lives this lavish lifestyle based on a a 4 year relationship with Kurt . If Kurt was still alive, he would’ve left her a long time ago. I wish he would have put all of his money to good use by giving most of it to charity and leaving a lump sum in trust to Francis Bean.

    I can’t believe what she is doing to her face!!!!

  4. Jacq says:

    Please tell me the missing pictures have the hand dragging her out of the car by her coat. But not before she made a “shoo-shoo” in their backseat.

    Total disaster and just another day are synonymous for her. It is amazing to me how Love and the Lohans of the world manage to maintain their lifestyle long after the success is gone and drugs have set-in. Who would want to be associated with them? Free clothes, cars, jewelry – i don’t get it.

  5. ThatBoyLuke says:

    OMG who hasn’t got in (or tried to get in) the wrong car when your drunk? it’s probably easier when theyre all black with blacked out windows lol
    I actually hear that Courtney is doing well and keeping off drugs. She’s actually living with her new boyfriend who is Camilla (Duchess of Cornwall)’s godson lmao can you imagine?

    But whatever she’s a rock legend cut her some slack ffs.

  6. LunaT says:

    It’d suck to be an addict, but it’d suck more if people were around to take pics when you were, um, whatever Courtney is in these pics. Hope that Frances has loving, sober people in her life.

  7. TeeTee says:

    geesh, she still has millions left huh??

    its a shame no one can MAKE her get some help, she looks horible and crazed.

    who is worse her or Amy Winehouse??

    just woww!

  8. saucy says:

    i want to love court, i really do. live through this was an amazing album. but there are too many dead people left in her wake to believe she is just some party-loving rock chick out for a good time.

  9. gaugustaus says:

    A rock legend?! I completely disagree with @ThatBoyLuke

    She clung on to a much brighter persona than herself, got knocked up & rode his tragedy all the way to the bank. She has repeatedly cashed in on Nirvana’s success, not her own talent of being a mess. Don’t even get me started on what kind of a parent she wasn’t.

    I cannot stand her.

  10. ThatBoyLuke says:

    @GAUGASTAUS, um… ever heard of HOLE?!…

  11. Cherry Rose says:

    @ gaugustaus – I totally agree with you. The fact that she published Kurt’s journals, and uses Kurt’s name at every opportunity, just shows that without Kurt, she would have been a nobody.

    She’s a terrible person. She reamed out her own daughter on the internet, all because she couldn’t get her hands on Frances’ inheritance money, and the fact Frances knows her mother does not have her best interest in mind so she keeps her distance from Courtney.

    Fuck Courtney Love. She is a leech to society, and the day she runs out of money and has to live like the rest of us won’t come a day too soon.

  12. wunderkindt says:

    ‘rock legend’? Not!

    What a difference a few whisps of hair make: with hair blown back, CL looks like a 55 yr old.

    Does she even know where she is? (CL probably thinks its just a cold snap in LA or something)

  13. Dany says:

    Ew. Is she on the way to her job? Sciusme… jus to the nex sreet corna… *hic :-)

  14. REALIST says:

    The poor guy near her-he has no idea what to do-help her? Leave her alone? Call the UK version of 911 (get some Narcan here, stat!!)

  15. albeli says:

    Curt Cobain is a rock legend. Courtney is just a drugged out disaster.

  16. Trillion says:

    All that crazy without the counterbalance of talent. Pity.

  17. Az says:

    How this woman is still alive is beyond me. She is batshit inane. Who was it that said on the Pam Anderson roast a few years back that it’s incredible how Courtney now looks worse than Kurt? Meanwhile, she was staggering around the stage braying, “One year sober!” when she was obviously high off her ass. Pathetic.

  18. Liana says:

    But whatever she’s a rock legend cut her some slack ffs.

    One good album and a soul sucking persona does not a legend make.

  19. gaugustaus says:

    Yes ThatBoyLuke I have heard of Hole & her involvement in that band does not make her a rock legend. If she hadn’t married Kurt she would have been just another artist who had moderate success in the 90′s.

    I agree with Liana & Cherry Rose

    Moving on now…

  20. mary jane says:

    Some of the comments about Courtney indicate nothing but complete ignorance about her career with Hole.

    She’s still writing and creating good music.

    You morons sound like a bunch of seniors in an assisted living facility.. “Oh Kurt was SUCH a nice boy….but that awful Courtney he was married to…”

    Cop on to yourselves. If you are incapable of separating an artists career from their personal lives, then hey, I guess you’ve limited yourselves to Taylor Swift. Grow up.

  21. junk573r says:

    Actually CLove has been in a bunch of bands before starting her own band. She’s also been an a fair amount of movies and received critical acclaim for her role in The People Vs Larry Flint. I’m not arguing that she’s so fucked up you could probably OD just touching her skin but she does have talent. If she got her shit together after Larry Flint she probably could have had a pretty decent acting career..I’m still not arguing that she exploited her relationship with Curt. Live Through This was my FAVORITE album in grade 6 (after the downward spiral) but when it came out my friends and I kept saying it was Curt with boobs. She rocked her image and influenced so many girls. I had so many mary janes and babydoll dresses…..

  22. Liana says:

    Uh, yeah. I’m soooo into Taylor Swift (rolls eyes). Hole had ONE decent album. “Live Through This” was one of the most awesome albums of all times. But it doesn’t make Courtney anything close to a “legend,” more of a cautionary tale. She could have been so much more than this cracked out shell of a person she is now. She COULD have been a legend. Instead, she chose to become a poster child for what not to do in the music industry. She’s burned most of her bridges.

  23. Cheri says:

    What? She looks like a rockstar.

  24. Larissa says:

    Well opinions apart, fact is Courtney is part of the rock history, she might be a bad mother and a blood sucker, money grabbing ****… Rock stars are anything BUT role models, seriously!

  25. malachais says:

    @Mary Jane, the post was related to her crazy shenanigans in London. Cherry Rose pretty much summed it all up. I honestly think Courtney hasn’t been successful in any part of her life, which is sad except for her fortune which was provided by Kurt.

    Yes people are going to point this out, as well as her not so successful music career because this all ties in… her crazy, selfish behaviour has ruined her career, her daughter’s childhood (more than likely), among other things. I liked Hole back in the day, but I don’t consider someone who keeps themselves in the tabs because of their drug habits, who she’s dating, or custody issues successful or memorable by any means.

  26. JenJen says:

    @malachais,Yes, you got it so right.

    This woman is nothing but a greedy skank. I will never understand what any man sees in her, even with all her money that she does not share with Kurt’s child or his mother. She is scum.

  27. Statler says:

    Rock star, you say? Really? Sorry, but it takes a little more than partying like one…

    I love it that people keep bringing up Live Through This as some sort of artistic justification for this mess, when Kurt wrote the songs. Billy Corgan contributed heavily to Hole’s follow-up, although he was only credited for one or two songs; I’m sure a similar pattern exists for their other albums. All this is common knowledge, has been for over fifteen years, so I have a hard time understanding why people still make these arguments. ??

  28. sickofit says:

    i guess there must be a reason why Dave Grohl hates her… she isnt the nicest person living on earth thats for sure…

  29. munchies says:

    its windy, phullease… leave the old woman alone.
    when she got at the wrong car, who cares. at least shes able to laugh at herself.

  30. Trillion says:

    Wanting badly to be a rockstar and playing the part of one does not make one a rockstar. I knew Hole in the Live Thru This phase. Those riffs are def. Nirvana throw-aways. (Lyrics are hers and they’re not bad) That’s why no other album has been comparable. Sorry but it’s just the truth. And calling posters “morons” who need to “grow up” for not liking Courtney is just so weak. Come on.

  31. gg says:

    I really wanted her to clean up and succeed as an actress after I saw her in ‘People vs. Larry Flynt’, but it never happened. All I see of her now is self pictures and doing anything to get attention.

    Courtney. Your ego is not your amigo.

  32. Chris says:

    Loved her in The People vs. Larry Flynt. Her portrayal of a drug addicted stripper was very realistic.

  33. Siren6 says:

    Just another day being a total disaster. Gotta love Courtney, she’s totally dependable that way!

  34. D.B. says:

    I don’t know if that’s real fur that she’s advertising…er…I mean wearing, but here’s a link showing how animals are treated when they’re turned into fur coats…this may make some of you ill:

    (If the link does not work just Google search “” and click on the link entitled “fur farm”).

  35. Desert Cat says:

    What are you all talking about? She looks FABULOUS for a 65-year-old retired prostitute.

  36. CaramelKiss says:

    Ironic that she got her paws on Kurt’s moolah by getting her “Hole” plugged? That’s the only way I even recall the name of the band honestly. Shrugs shoulders and a luke warm “MEH”.

  37. truthzbetta says:

    Looks like she is wearing the entire QVC Joan Rivers collection. Botched facelift came with the surprise gift coupon.

  38. Kloops says:

    How is it her body continues to go on each day? It is a testament to the miracle – and vagaries – of the human body that she’s not dead because less than 7 hours of sleep and I look like death warmed over.

  39. Hakura says:

    What I’m amazed by is how she’s somehow managed to defeat gravity with that hair.

    She really is quite a mess. She was lovely when she managed to get herself together that last time… even managed to look classy.

  40. devilgirl says:

    Actually, I think Love has had a few good albums.

  41. wunderkindt says:

    How is it that CL can get so much plastic surgery done and then look so much older than her real age?
    Oh yeah, must be that ‘rockstar’ thing!

    Without the connection to Kurt Cobain-a real ‘rockstar’-CL would have been totally forgotten about after 15 mins in the 90s. . . I mean, where is her work now? Answer: nada!

  42. Cherry Rose says:

    wunderkindt – Actually, Hole put out an album not too long ago, which shocked me. I’m not too sure what kind of ratings the album got though. Didn’t really care, as I hate Courtney Love.

    I’m one of those Kurt fans who believe that Courntey had something to do with his death.

  43. Bella Mosley says:

    Courtney is a Rock Legand? Only if you mean Rock Cocaine!!!!

  44. Cat Burrito says:

    Tragic, scary, sad. Shameful that she doesn’t seem to have a bottom to hit. She seems perfectly content with the fall.

  45. harfang says:

    There are three Hole albums that I listen to all the time, and if anything, Courtney owes a crapload to Kat Bjelland of Babes in Toyland (which Courtney was in briefly), both musically and image-wise throughout the ’90s – although there are many ways that Hole diverged from that, probably in large part due to Eric Erlandson and Melissa Auf der Maur. I think Court is stuck in a loop of sheltered fame-whoring and cannot get any perspective on what her life has become. I think she is a really terrible parent. But I will continue to care about her a little bit, because I have been listening to her totally kickass voice and music for 20 years. It has genuine staying power. And she was amazing in “Larry Flynt.” Her talent is currently suppressed by her stupid life, and that’s the real tragedy.
