My favorite Courtney Love is "Live Through This" Courtney Love. She was all red-lipstick, messy blond hair and angry guitar playing. Hole was a great band, so says me. I liked them when they were messy, and I liked them after Courtney got all glam and looked like she regularly washed her hair.
I also love "Kurt and Courtney" Courtney Love. Those two were seriously in love. It's clear.
I think sometimes quiet, introspective people need those brash, loud people in their lives. Courtney provided all the noise. I've known people in relationships like that, and sometimes they work, and sometimes they're terrible, but they make sense to me. Plus look at little Frances Bean!
I've started to get into lipstick this year -- like loud lipstick that's makes my face all mouth. Courtney Love has that look down.
She really had a signature style -- babydoll dresses, baby barrettes, baby, baby, baby, but she's a tough, sexy woman.
Plus Hole made great music. She was everything you wanted out of a rock star -- moving, angry music and a visual spectacle to boot. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go smear on some red lipstick and put a plastic duck barrette in my hair...
