In an candid interview, Courtney Love talked about her extensive drug use, her relationship with Kurt Cobain and her concerns about Lady Gaga‘s future.
She also talks about shooting up heroin at a party she attended in the mi-90s at Charlie Sheen‘s house.
“My boyfriend at the time took me to this star-studded party at Charlie Sheen’s house in Malibu. Tom Cruise was there, and Madonna, and my… convinced me to shoot up. ‘Come on, everyone’s doing it.’ So that’s when my whole heroin drama began,” she admitted.
On the first time she did drugs:
“The first time I got high on coke is captured on camera. I was 19 at the time. My friend Jennifer shot a whole roll of film of us doing giant lines. It wasn’t a very pleasant experience, though.”
On whether there’s a connection between drug use and creativity:
“Definitely. Look at the most brilliant artists of the past two centuries. Proust. Tennessee Williams. Scott Fitzgerald. Jim Morrison. Kurt. They all were f—ed up on something or other. It goes with the territory. Artists are more sensitive than other people. Maybe we need something to dull the pain.”
On doing drugs with Kurt Cobain:
“Before I met Kurt, I was more or less clean, but then Kurt earned his first million and decided to become a junkie, and I decided to become a junkie along with him. That’s the co-dependent side of me. After he died there were all these stupid jokes I made up: What did the co-dependent say when the junkie jumped out the window? “Wait a minute, I’m coming!”
On Lady Gaga:
“She may be doing fine at the moment, but I’m worried about her future. She’s very young, and she’s very talented, but she doesn’t seem to have any female friends. Or any straight guy friends for that matter. Instead, she surrounds herself with this coterie of gay stylists and advisors who’ve turned her into this weird, sexless Barbie doll… If she doesn’t watch out she’ll turn into a lonely drag queen.”

Just what is it with rock stars and the ashes of deceased family members? First Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards admitted to snorting his late father’s ashes, now Courtney Love admits having the desire to snort Kurt Cobain‘s ashes.
According to author Neil Strauss, currently doing the promotional rounds for his tome, ‘Everybody Loves You When You’re Dead: Journeys Into Fame And Madness’, the Hole singer considered snorting the ashes of her late husband, Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain.
Speaking to Radaronline, Strauss said, “She walked to a dresser, pulled open a drawer, and removed a square-shaped tin,” Strauss said. “She removed the lid, revealing a plastic bag full of white ashes.”
Strauss claims that Love then said, “Too bad you don’t do coke. Otherwise I’d suggest taking a metal straw to it.”
He declined the offer, telling the troubled singer, “‘I don’t think that would be the right thing to do,” to which she replied, ‘I’d like to though.’”
He continued, “She was serious when she made the suggestion. She actually said she would offer his ashes to me first to snort and then said she would like them.”
I guess that explains why Love was all sorts of mad when Kurt’s ashes were allegedly stolen?

I’ve never seen a ghost in my life, my family always say that they seen them in the old family home but unfortunately for them the ghosts weren’t of famous people. Here is 8 celebrity ghosts that apparently haunt certain places…
If you ever get the urge to talk to Jim Morrison’s ghost, no need to travel to Paris where he died. Nope, the owners and staff of a Mexican restaurant in Los Angeles, aptly named Mexico, believe Jim is haunting their bathroom. This isn’t actually as random as it sounds—the building the restaurant occupies was once The Doors’ workshop and recording studio. Apparently, the vocal booth was located exactly where the bathroom now sits. “Jim Morrison is definitely still here,” said the restaurant’s manager. “Funky things happen all the time we can’t explain. Lights popping on and off at weird times. But when that bathroom door handle jiggles by itself, that’s the weirdest sign. It’s totally inexplicable.” The restaurant’s chef adds, “We had someone come in before we opened up, to do a ‘spiritual cleaning’ to try and put everything at peace. But in the end they told us, ‘Sorry, whatever is here is not leaving.’”
Farrah Fawcett‘s ghost can be found at … Tori Spelling‘s house. Tori had a medium over to try to contact her dead father, but instead supposedly found herself talking to Farrah, who asked that she pass on some important messages to her family.
Marilyn Monroe may have died at her home in Brentwood, but her ghost supposedly haunts the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, where she loved to stay. Guests have seen her image in a mirror in the lobby, which was once in her poolside suite, as well as seen her specter in the ballroom.
Dan Aykroyd swears his house is haunted by Cass Elliot of the Mamas and Papas, who died after choking in 1974. “A ghost certainly haunts my house,” he said. “It once even crawled into bed with me. I rolled over and just nuzzled up to whatever it was and went back to sleep. … The ghost also turns on the Stairmaster and moves jewelry across the dresser. I’m sure it’s Mama Cass because you get the feeling it’s a big ghost.” Oooh, harsh.
When the remaining Beatles got together in 1995 to record “Free As A Bird,” they all felt the studio was haunted by the ghost of John Lennon. “There were a lot of strange goings-on in the studio—noises that shouldn’t have been there and equipment doing all manner of weird things,” said Paul McCartney at the time. “There was just an overall feeling that John was around.” They also say that, mysteriously, you can hear John’s voice in the recording.
Elvis haunts pretty much everywhere. People have seen his ghost at Graceland. Some even claim to have seen his ghost marrying Marilyn Monroe there. They’ve also seen him at the Las Vegas Hilton, where he performed from 1969 to 1976, waiting backstage. Oh, and near a home he rented in Bel Air, though the place was knocked down forever ago.
Anna Nicole Smith
Anna Nicole Smith died at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino three years. Ever since, guests have seen her ghost wandering the hallway. Which would actually make sense, because after her death, the hotel renovated the suite and re-numbered the rooms so that no one could request the fateful room on purpose.
Years ago, a bar manager in the U.K. claimed that Kurt Cobain was haunting her laptop computer. She says the computer asked her for a kiss, and when she complied, it stopped working. Ooookay, lady.
Do you believe in ghosts? Got any creepy stories to share?

In what may have been a Hallmark moment from hell, Frances Bean Cobain was publicly blistered by her rocker mom on Thursday—a day after the spawn of Love and late grunge god Kurt Cobain turned 18.
Instead of baking cupcakes, Courtney Love‘s been busy posting a string of rambling verbal attacks against her estranged daughter, culminating with Frances being warned by Mommy Dearest that Love could “ruiinher.”
“youve done a damned good job frances of destroying anything i could build,” Courtney went off. “Why would you leave me and my life in tatters like this” reads another.
She goes on to accuse Frances of plotting to destroy Courtney: “was that therapist right? Why do you want to ruin my personal life?”
But in true Courtney fashion, within minutes she swings from dirty digs at her daughter over lawyers and money to gushing compliments, tweeting that she “aches” for her girl. “I long for your kiss and your sweet head smell, I long for youm I ache for youm I die for you every day.”
Mom and daughter have been embroiled in a vicious, often public battle since late last year, when her own unstable conduct cost Courtney guardianship of Frances.
Courtney’s latest album, Nobody’s Daughter, written while the singer was in rehab, was released in April—just weeks after Frances released her own record.
Too bad they won’t be making beautiful music together anytime soon.
I think these tweets help all of us understand why she lost custody of her daughter.
