Lily Allen: Courtney Love is “a paranoid drug addled lunatic”


Remember how Courtney Love had a brief moment of lucidity last week? Yeah, that’s over. In spectacular form, actually. Yesterday, we heard about Love’s literal crack tweets regarding her desire to “hate f-ck” John Mayer with her powerful vadge. Then this morning, I awoke to this story at HuffPo about Courtney spending pretty much all of last night crack tweeting about how Edward Norton cheated her out of $300,000, and how he cheated Angelina Jolie and Brad out of money too…? But my crack tweet-to-English literacy is sub-par. I get a headache trying to decipher Lohan crack-tweets, so Courtney’s are way above my pay grade.

Anyway, it’s safe to say Courtney is no longer feeling any pain due to whatever maximum-strength crack she’s smoking. Not content to simple pick fights with Ed Norton and John Mayer (and her powerful vadge, probably), it seems she and Lily Allen are in the middle of some kind of beef. Let me just say, I’ve always had mixed feelings about Lily Allen, but the way she takes down Courtney actually had me giggling:

Safe to say Lily Allen won’t be catching any of those Courtney Love-fronted Hole reunion concerts. Things are definitely heating up over on Twitter, with the ever-bloomin’ English rose slamming Love for spreading rumors about some of Allen’s alleged diva demands—demands Allen says are completely bogus. But don’t call it a fight!

“I would never fight with her, as a rule I don’t pick on crazy old ladies,” Lily tweeted.

First, some backstory: It all started earlier this month when the music stars collided at London’s Brit Awards, the U.K. answer to the Grammys. On the red carpet, Love went out of her way to tell anyone with a microphone that while her Miu Miu frock was perfectly acceptable, she really wanted to wear a Chanel dress to the event (the Miu Miu PR department’s thank-you is no doubt in the mail).

Love claimed that she was denied access to any Chanel apparel, however, claiming Allen put a “lock” on all that design house’s wares.

Well, the accusation got back to Allen, and needless to say, she wasn’t happy. She was so unhappy, in fact, that she reportedly snubbed Love at this week’s much more casual U.K. music bash, the NME Awards.

Everyone caught up? Good. Now on your marks, get set, Twitter!

“Just clearing a couple of things up,” Allen wrote this morning. “Courtney Love and I did NOT have a bust up at the NME’s. There was an exchange of words, yes. She’s upset because she has got it into her head that i put a lock on some dresses for the brit awards. She’s made no secret of this and, when i saw her at the NME’s she tried to talk to me and i told her to shut up and stop spreading stupid rumours about me. And thats pretty much it. I would never fight with her, as a rule I don’t pick on crazy old ladies.”

Oh, our mistake. But she wasn’t quite done there. When asked by a follower if it actually transpires in celebrity world that stars put dibs on clothing, Allen seemed to deny the practice entirely—or at least denied that it’s something she ever engaged in.

“No but it’s the sort of thing a paranoid drug addled lunatic might come up with.”

As for Love, her defense was too little, too late soon.

The rocker, who has already redirected her ire to Edward Norton, actually offered a mea culpa to Allen last night.

“Dear i was told by my pr you had a ;ock on chanel couture this coulve been nonsense, it’s a compliment if true,” Lovee wrote, going on to admit that she was probably misinformed.

“I think i know the actual reality, if you did NOT have a lock wich i think is the mpore probable I was told nonsense. so end.”

Well, almost end.

“F–K i’m going to miss you all you brits with a few mean girls exceptions,” the U.S.-bound Love wrote this morning. “im taller than most girls so when some smaller girl picks on me it always looks like im a bully or mean, im really not, always.swear.”

Swear swear? OK then.

[From E! News]

Is that about it? Let’s see what else Courtney has been up to… ah, yes, she also took credit for making British actor/comedian Steve Coogan “cool”. Uh…yeah. Love said: “I’ve been embarrassed before, but that [fling with Coogan] was like a ten,. He was very, very nice – nicely spoken, didn’t know he was a super freak.” Love then said she was afraid she ruined Coogan’s rep, but then said: “Without knowing I’d actually made him really cool.” Jesus, Love.

    Paranoid and drug-addled? Nooooo, really? So she wanted to wear Chanel and ended up choosing ‘Mad Hatter’, eh?

  2. OXA says:

    Well that coming from Lily Allen is like the kettle calling the pot black.

  3. L says:

    There’s a twitter feed CLtranslated that translates courtney’s tweets into regular english. It’s pretty helpful.

    But darn her for making me have to agree with Lily Allen. I can’t stand either of them.

  4. annaloo says:

    Takes one to know one, Lily…

    I must say though… that top pic of Courtney is EPIC for its sheer madness. Cannot help but be mesmerized…

  5. Curlyfry says:

    In related news, Lilly Allen also tweeted:

    “Apparently, fish can swim!”

    “I looked up today, and realized the sky is blue!”

  6. Sumodo1 says:

    Good luck in retail, Lily.

  7. Pont Neuf says:

    L, I’m also surprised (or could it be disappointed?) with myself!

    You know that someone is close to being as bad as Satan when they are awful enough to make you agree with Lily Allen over anything at all.

    Damn you, drug-addled lunatic, damn you! (Sorry, but after this, I think that I even love Miss Allen a little… Excuse me while I go dip myself in disinfectant. I feel really filthy!).

  8. Eileen Yover says:

    Jesus, Mary, and Joseph….what the F#CK IS that 3rd pic? It looks like Clockwork Orange got bedazzled!

  9. Victoria says:

    OMG you guys I know who Im gonna dress up like for Halloween!

  10. daisyfly says:

    Courtney, you were doing okay with the hoochie leotard, the acid-hooker tights, the Pimp of Oz pumps, and the Cowardly Lion’s skin coat. But taking the Mad Hatter’s hat? That’s just over doing it, honey.

  11. whateva says:

    who’s taking (and selling) these interior car photos?? are drivers or valets really getting away w/ this? i’d think these girls would castrate someone for popping a flash at em while they’re getting on board!

  12. Ron says:

    Some these pop stars are so quick. She’s on her way to Oxford with observations like this.

  13. ses says:

    Courtney totally looks like Janice the Muppet…but acts like Animal

  14. snapdragon says:

    it’s avril lavigne in 20 years.

  15. city says:

    courtney, honey…no one’s pupils are that big when a flash goes off unless they are super high…

  16. LindyLou says:

    I think Courtney’s problem getting a Chanel dress is probably due to the fact that the clown makeup she wears doesn’t go with Chanel couture….bad for their image.

    Just sayin’.

  17. fizXgirl314 says:

    well, I guess when you put up pictures like that, there’s no denying it. But why even bother with this statement? it doesn’t take a genius to recognize this fact… but thanks anyways captain obvious!

  18. Jackie Brown says:

    LISTEN UP USA!! please stop sending your cracked out tweeting has beens to the UK, we have enough of our own. I am doing a return to sender on Courtney and Lindsay ….. I might try and find Kevin Spacey and send him back too, although at least he pays well and is polite when he is arrested for picking up rent boys.

    P.S – So glad you took Madonna back!!! If you want to send Cowell over that sounds fair enough!!

  19. Maghreid says:

    Jackie Brown: I hope they get lost like luggage in the swap.

  20. Solveig says:

    Thanks Lily, I was already aware of it.

  21. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    In other news, you need a heart to live.

  22. cara says:

    and here I thought Madonna looked like a old hag…guess I was mistaken

  23. Mentok the Mind Taker says:

    @JackieBrown —

    We’ll keep Simon if you take Miley.

    Please. If necessary, we’ll take Katie Price every other month if that sweetens the deal…

  24. Mary says:

    When will celebrities realise that their tweets actually reveal how crazy, dumb and neurotic they actually are?

  25. mtngirl says:

    @ Eileen: Jesus, Mary, and Joseph….what the F#CK IS that 3rd pic? It looks like Clockwork Orange got bedazzled!

    Roflmao. Love is a crack head with way too many Ronco gadgets. Not my cup of tea but she seems to have some talent; too bad she clings to drama and despair. I feel sorry for her daughter…

  26. Gia says:

    Now I think I understand what happened to Kurt Cobain. Yikes!

  27. Kelly says:

    But the REALLY unintentionally hilarious part about all of this is the fact that the first pic could have been *either one* of those aforementioned maidens.

    I do feel sorry for CL’s ‘people’ but couldn’t they have just told her that someone’s dog ate Chanel or maybe Kurt’s family hid it in their trailers, because that shit she probably would have believed.

  28. Orbit says:

    When Allen calls Love a “paranoid, drug-addled lunatic,” recall that truth is an absolute defense to defamation.

  29. SammyJo says:

    Poor Frances. How embarassing that Mom won’t or can’t grow up.

  30. coucou says:

    Oh puhleeeze do get off your high horse Jackie Brown – Gawd i haaaate when you Brits get so snobby and bring up nationality when it’s really about personality, it’s just so fukcing boring and typical. I LOVE Brits and Yanks alike and all other cool people of the world. Coolness is not a national issue, it’s global, step outside the box and see the good that’s everywhere, even if it’s being gate-crashed by Courtney, the poor miserable trollop.

    Anyway, your country – very cool indeed – is pretty small in comparison, so it’s only natural we Yanks have a higher amount of freaks in comparison. And yet somehow…you Brits do seem to corner the market on awesome music…i’ll give ya props for that…imagine if Sid and Nancy could have tweeted…

  31. thepickle says:

    I am more upset with her lack of originality. She’s just tried to put on the last 5 of Lady Gaga’s costumes at the same time.

  32. gloaming says:

    I think Jackie Brown was just having a laugh…..
    But I agree with her sentiments.

  33. crab says:

    I hate it when someone has a tiff with someone whose older than them and they throw in the word “old” or “cougar” or anything that pertains to them as being older as an insult! Well guess what, we’re all headed that way! In other countries being “older” comes with a lot of respect and wisdom! Here it’s like a disease and I think that’s why plastic surgery is so big these days because everyone is trying to hang on to their youth and not give in to the “getting older” disease!

  34. Maritza says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised if one day we find out she has died from an “accidental” overdose. She has to voluntarily get help, that’s the only way she will survive.

  35. Moooooooo says:

    I’ve tried and tried to unlove Courtney but I just CAN’T! I love her, she’s nuts but interesting to me!

  36. jim bob says:

    And I am a sane, booze-addled, troll that came out of nowhere and will soon disappear into nothing.
    Wanna Fuk???

  37. Elke Coomey says:

    @IHATEBOB69 haha so do i
