Does Courtney Love Deserve a Second Chance?

Because she sure thinks so. Never mind that Courtney Love has had about 8,000 chances to be a decent, functional member of society, a task which she’s taken to with varying amounts of success. Still, she thinks that plenty of other stars have done worse than her (and she’s right) and that Hollywood should still make a place for her in its ranks.

From FASHION:

“Listen, if [Orange is the New Black star] Natasha Lyonne can burn down a house and Robert [Downey Jr.] can go to prison for two years, I deserve a second chance. I know there is hope for me.”

Okay, listen. I love Courtney Love and think she’s hilarious and also a total legend (Hole’s Live Through This still holds up after all these years), but what’s with trying to throw other people in Hollywood under the bus to make yourself look better? Not working, girl. RDJ is super well-liked and has turned his life around and Natasha Lyonne has always been a bit of a bad ass, so chill.

Courtney also started rambling about protecting Kurt Cobain’s legacy and her tenuous relationship with Patti Smith:

“I grew up on Patti Smith, worshipping Patti Smith and she always gives me this hairy eyeball. I’m seriously going to sit down and write her ass a letter if [she] keeps doing ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ and keeps evoking Kurt. Now she becomes the guardian of the dead people. That’s her trope. My friend planned Allen Ginsberg’s funeral with her and they got into a huge fight because she has like no sense of humour.”

HAHA what a random story – Patti Smith has no sense of humour because she fought with someone while planning Allen Ginsberg’s funeral. Go figure. Oh, Courtney – never change.
