From fighting with Madonna to a Golden Globe nomination to tweeting half-naked pictures of herself, no one knows what Courtney Love is going to say or do next. Mrs. Kurt Cobain recently sat down with The New York Times for an interview that is being described as “wild” and “amazing.” To put it mildly.
The Hole frontwoman seemed to have some trouble focusing during the interview, which centers around Courtney’s struggle to become more respected in the media. That struggle might have something to do with the fact that Ms. Love met The New York Times reporter in her hotel room late, drunk, and naked. Then she made the reporter help her put her shoes on… while naked.
Love her or hate her, there’s no denying that Courtney Love is a wellspring of some of the most memorable quotes this side of Kanye West‘s Twitter feed. Here are 10 of Courtney Love’s most notable quotes from her New York Times profile.
2.)“I’d like to be trusted again, like I was at one point” – Courtney Love, referring to the time period when she was nominated for a Golden Globe for “The People vs. Larry Flint.”
