When you don’t even meet Courtney Love‘s standards, you know you’re in trouble, man. Such was the case for Russell Brand, who apparently tried to get with the rocker years back, only to be turned down because he was “too musky” for her liking. LOL, what?
From US Weekly:
“My favorite Russell Brand line was when we first were friends and he tried to hit on me and nothing ever happened,” the 49-year-old recalled on the British talk show.
The former Hole frontwoman continued: “He goes, ‘I’ve had a lot of grand conversations, darling, but none of them have ever ended in an orgasm. Can we go in your room?'”
Although crude, it wasn’t the pick up line that turned Love away. “He’s got some good lines,” Love said, [But] I said to Russell, ‘You’re too musky for me, man.'”
Kurt Cobain’s widow added: “He is a little musky. We did yoga together and the musk was there.”
I wonder if this was during Courtney’s super glam phase? Pretty hilarious either way. Were this about anyone other than Russell Brand, I’d probably put it down to Courtney being crazy, but this actually rings true to me!
