Damn. How amazing does Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of the late Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, look in this photograph shot by designer Hedi Slimane? Other pics on Slimane’s blog show that Frances shares her mom’s love of tattoos, though I think her face looks like the perfect mix of both her parents. Check out a few more after the jump!

Despite her alleged credit problems, Courtney Love has discovered a new way to rip retailers off: Etsy. Her favorite purchases on the online marketplace include a $450 vintage Hungarian wedding dress, assorted crystals, and a $58,000 George Harvey original painting. But surprise! She doesn’t pay vendors on time. Courtney recently posted a rather articulate (and misspelled) note on the site detailing the reasons behind her delinquent payments… Keep reading »
“I still can’t escape the stigma [of a drug addict] for some reason. Even people like Kelly Osbourne feel free to f**k with me. A few nights ago, when she appeared on ‘Fashion Police with Joan Rivers,’ the bitch called me a crackhead. … This is a girl whose life I have saved twice, once with C.P.R. and another time with C.P.R. and violence — by which I mean I had to poke her furiously in certain places to wake her up from her coma. …She’s been sober for how long? Less than a year? Good for her! But it wasn’t that long ago when Kim Stewart was screaming, ‘Courtney, what are we going to do? Kelly Osbourne is blue on the floor!’ Kelly wasn’t doing that well back then. For some reason, Kim Stewart also called me when Paris Hilton got pulled over for her last D.U.I. And Lindsay Lohan called me after she was arrested. The judge presiding over her case was the same judge who presided over mine. He was a very sweet man. I think he was an ex-alcoholic himself. I told Lindsay to just get it together and trust the judge, and Lindsay’s father called me for advice every day. I’m not even that friendly with these girls. What am I, a junkie Auntie Mame?”
—Oh. My. God. This Courtney Love interview on The Fix, Salon.com’s new blog about addiction and recovery, is EPIC. There’s about 16 more excerpts that are priceless, including lots of Hollywood gossip about the drugs she’s done with Winona Ryder, Sting, and Andy Dick. And she talks some crazy smack about Kim Gordon, whom she calls a “cocktease” who was obsessed with Kurt Cobain. Yikes. Worth a read, definitely. [The Fix]

Courtney Love is a wee bit TwitPic happy today! Among the live performance shots and photos of her asleep on an airplane are a few pics of the wild card singer dressed up to the nines in her best burlesque gear. She’s kooky and a total loose cannon, but it’s moments like these where I wish Courtney was my friend and we could play dress-up in her closet together.

It is true that we prefer Courtney Love just the way she is, as a naked photo-Tweeting, always-ranting lunatic. But soon that could be Lady Lunatic to you. Courtney’s new dude is Brit Henry Allsopp—in addition to giving him credit for “saving her,” she’s also given him power of attorney over her bank account. “He’s a really good person,” she says. “Frances would love him.” Now here is where things get interesting. Allsopp is on track for the title of Lord—he is the godson of Camilla Parker Bowles. Here’s hoping that when Allsopp gets the title, he makes Courtney his Lady, because that would be kind of amazing.

I’ve read so much advice about not just hopping into bed with men—about how you should make yourself as exclusive as a luxury brand, and how holding out makes him commit. While normally I’d insert an eye roll here, I’m finally a broken slut. Why? Courtney Love said she doesn’t do one-night stands.
