Courtney Love says Amy Winehouse is “the biggest drug user in music”


In pot calling the kettle black news, Courtney Love has felt in necessary to state the obvious: she’s letting us all know that “’Amy Winehouse is the biggest drug user in music.’” She also felt it important to let the world know that the sky is blue unless it’s filled with clouds, then it’s white or a fluffy grey. When it rains, you get wet, and humans breathe air. Thanks for letting us know. Who the f**# does she think she is? First she was calling out all the thin women in Hollywood anorexics and bulimics (this from the woman who lost an estimated 40 pounds in three or four months) and now one of the most infamous drug users of all time is pointing fingers at someone else? I want to know what she’s on, because I’d love to get my hands on whatever could raise my self-esteem to such delusional levels.

“According to U.K. paper The Sun, Courtney Love claims, ‘Amy [Winehouse] does more drugs than anyone I’ve ever known.’ The friend of troubled star Owen Wilson reportedly went on to tell a pal, ‘I’ve been with lots of people when they’ve taken coke, including stars like Lindsay Lohan and Kate Moss, but I’ve never seen anyone take as much coke as Amy. Even I wasn’t that bad.’ Though Winehouse is slated to perform at today’s Mercury Prize ceremony in England, she has canceled her entire fall tour and an appearance at this coming weekend’s MTV Video Music Awards after checking into a hospital mid-August for ‘health issues.’”

Since Rolling Stone printed it, I would think it’s possible Courtney Love actually said this… although they’re quoting The Sun, so who the hell knows. Courtney Love isn’t exactly known for her diplomacy, and she isn’t dripping with intelligence either, but you’d think she’d have just enough common sense not to open herself up to such criticism for being a hypocrite. Though there were those (undisputed) eating disorder remarks, so who the hell knows. Though they have completely different musical styles, I still think Amy Winehouse has a lot more talent than Courtney Love. She’s still most famous for being Kurt Cobain’s widow… well it’s sort of a tie between that and being a major delusional druggie. I’m going to assume time and age have mellowed her and she didn’t really say those things – or she’s on so many of her own drugs that she couldn’t help herself.
