Courtney Love is getting creative, and this time it has nothing to do with naked Twit pics or making accusations that Dave Grohl hit on her daughter. She’s an artist now! Actually, according to Love, she’s always been an artist. Apparently, she studied at the San Francisco Art Institute in the ’80s. Who knew? Anyhow, her first gallery show “And She’s Not Even Pretty” is set to open this week at Fred Torres Collaborations in New York. The show will feature more than 45 of Love’s drawings, many of them with accompanying bits of her poetry and song lyrics. One of the more explicit pieces, “Keep It Up, Mother,” shows a woman on a crucifix with blood running down her naked body. The poetry reads: “How you must have suffered getting accustomed to ME. My savage solitary soul — my NAME that sends them all running …”
Uh oh. Someone is doing deep exploration of her “mothering issues.” AND we can’t wait to see the bloody display. Courtney isn’t the only famous person who has tried her hand at a different creative medium. Plenty of celebs have picked up the palette.

Courtney Love and Twitter always mix like alcohol and heavy machinery, and this time around the singer is accusing former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl of attempting to seduce her daughter, 19-year-old Frances Bean Cobain, and of being “sexually obsessed w kurt.” Gawker has the tweets, which were sent out last night from Love’s protected account. She starts out by tweeting to @davegrohl—who isn’t even the right Dave Grohl, but rather some German guy, Gawker notes—accusing Grohl of hitting on Frances and saying she wants to kill him.

Love her or hate her, you can’t deny that in less than two years, Courtney Stodden has gone from complete unknown to wildly embarrassing campy teen sexpot. This girl does virtually everything in lucite heels — including R-rated makeouts with aging hubby and famewhore Doug Hutchinson in a pumpkin patch – and has a penchant for borderline pornagraphic tweeting. And God, do we love her for it. But then there’s Courtney Love, who has been Bringing It since C. Stodden was in diapers. Literally. (Don’t you hate it when people overstate like that?) So, which is the biggest C-word? And by C-word, we mean, crazy Courtney, of course.

Geez ladies, by now we should all know that referring to anything other than rape as “rape” is just a bad idea. It trivializes what rape actually is and manages to make you look like a complete buffoon. And that’s exactly what Courtney Love did when she claimed the Muppets — the friggin’ Muppets! — “raped” the memory of Kurt Cobain by using Nirvana’s song “Smells Like Teen Spirit” in their movie.
Well, it’s a little more complicated than that. According to TMZ, half of Courtney Love’s rights to Cobain’s music was sold to a company called Primary Wave Music, which gave the Muppets movie permission to use the song. Also, the two surviving members of Nirvana, Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic, gave their permission as well. And Dave Grohol is in the movie. This sounds like another case of What The Hell Are You Talking About, Courtney Love? [TMZ]
Courtney Love is only the latest in a long and tacky line of celebs who’ve used the word “rape” insensitively. Click through our gallery of shame!
La Lohan is at it again, and for real this time, she is bumming me out. Earlier this week, we saw some Terry Richardson-shot photos of her with massively blown-out pupils and a wonky eye situation, and last night she was out and about for the New York Fashion Week amFAR Gala and … let’s just say she makes Courtney Love in her heroin-addled prime look like Kate Middleton. As a Lindsay fan from way back (weren’t we all?), I’ve always crossed my fingers that this once-beautiful, talented girl would pull it together, but I’m starting to think it’s time for me to let her go.
Not gonna lie, when Amelia sent me the link to Courtney Love’s closet tour of her West Village townhouse, my first response was “TERRIFYING.” I mean, think of all the misplaced cigarette butts, the stray hair extensions, the tatters. But actually? Courtney’s got some fine stuff. During her closet tour with Scott Lipps, Courtney expounds on the wonders of gloves, the joys of Victorian clothing and why her “utilitarian” Chloe blouse (which, let’s be honest, costs more than everything in my closet put together) is her favorite thing ever.
