Is Courtney Love still a musician? It seems like her occupation is to write bizarre blog posts and say kooky things in interviews. (Then again, if the world were full of boring celebrities who always said and did the right thing, what a sad, sad planet it would be.) Ms. Love graces the cover of the January issue of Elle UK, and, as usual, lets it all hang out, spilling about her past, karma, fashion and her daughter. Some choice quotes, after the jump.


In addition to some quotes about her body mentioned in this morning's Dirt Bag ("Baby, if I could get a gastric band I would! I’ve heard it’s a lot of vomiting and a pain in the ass, but it’s still easier than a diet,") here are some gems:
On her past:

"I had a long, hard fall. I set the stage for Britney to crash and burn. I went through it all first."


On karma:

"Let me tell you a story. On Sofia Coppola’s 16th birthday, way back in 1987, I stole a Chanel lip gloss from her Sistine Chapel of a bedroom. I’d never seen Chanel make-up before that. Years later, I left a Chanel lip gloss in the reception of The Mercer hotel for her. You know why? I believe that you’ve got to fix your karma. That’s why it’s so important not to be a victim. I made myself vulnerable. I’m the one who took those drugs."

On fashion:

"In 2004, no designer would lend me an outfit for the Grammys. So I wore a $32 vintage dress in defiance. I was so upset that even my friend Donatella Versace wouldn’t dress me that I called up the photographer David LaChapelle, crying. He said, 'When did you buy into all this? When did you start caring?' And I thought, you are so right. Go to a vintage store and make your own style from now on."


On Frances Bean:

"My daughter knows I did drugs in my first trimester of pregnancy. She weighed 7lb 6oz when she was born and she was healthy. We were excellent parents and I say that despite pretty much always having an edge on. Frances bonded very well with her father, at least in the first year and a half of her life."
