Courtney Love, folks. No really! She's gotten a tad incoherent in her old age. You may be dismayed to find upon reading her latest Myspace missive that Courtney doesn't seem to think her brilliance is shared by Madonna, or the editors at any of the major hipster magazines, of which she's currently pissed off at BlackBook and, like us, bored by Nylon — "read nylon - yep theres rilo dammed kiley- and a new bag designer jsut what the world needs!" Also, she seems concerned about her hair: is it too Michelle Pfeiffer circa Scarface? Whatever man, she has a new album coming out, and Linda Perry is sorta sometimes paying attention to it, and also she's got a tip for your inflamed brilliant-alcoholic pores:

Okay, what now?

Thanks, Makeupalley, for clearing that up:

This is my first review for great products that work, but smell horrible, cost a fortune and take up a lot of time to put on (if you use the masque. I would never have found these products but for a tip with a friend with amazing, crystal clear olive skin. I have used b.r. products for five weeks, as recommended by my aesthetician, Aida Bicaj, and they are the only things that have reduced the bumpiness and/or appearance of milia on my eyelids and under eye area; adult acne (from age thirty to present time) and discoloration and broken capillaries on my left cheek; and soothed and smoothed out on my combination confused medium-olive complexion.

So anyway, here's the discussion question: if, over the course of one's life, one has come on the basis of anecdotal first-person evidence, Paul Westerberg obsession etc., to associate addictive behavior with creativity, but simultaneously, as one has fallen further prey to one's own addictive tendencies than one might have hoped, to harbor grave skepticism for that association, as, you know, it's obviously a lot of bullshit lazy writer types use as an excuse to do more drugs, how is one supposed to react to Courtney Love's INSANE blog posts? Is one like, "Ha! Too bad I'm not that 'brilliant'!!" Or just Holy mother of god did I just read that ENTIRE THING AND GOOGLE THE REFERENCES??"

From the moment her jagged-voiced-self shoed up on screen in Straight To Hell, I didn't like her. Many years later out comes Pretty and I do a 180. A few years later out comes Celebrity Skin and I do another 180. God bless her and her fans, they keep each other happy. But Moe, there is a huge dif between Courtney Love and Paul Westerberg, starting with genitals, sure, but also including talent and the ability to (at least seem to be, or perhaps achin' to) be truer to one's anointed talent. God reached down and touched the glass of whiskey PW drank, and out popped clever, witty, wry, sad, happy, lonely, alienated, etc., beautiful pop songs. God reached down and pissed in Courtney's and out came first the screech, then the punk rock, then the Hollywood drivel. And she can't act, either.
