Sorry, Justin Bieber – you won’t be getting Amber Rose‘s phone number, because she’s too busy making out with Courtney Love for an Instagram photo, as you do. The magic happened after the BET Awards on Sunday, when everyone headed to an afterparty at the Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood.
Amber posted the photos to her Instagram page that night, and seemed pretty stoked to have “made out” (One typically opens her mouth and uses a little tongue when making out, but semantics…) with Courtney. She also seemed happy to have met up with Paris Hilton. Uh… why were Courtney and Paris even there? Neither of them are even involved in hip hop!
What a bizarre combination of people that I would never, ever put together for the life of me.

Courtney Love was a fashion icon in her time. There was the grunge phase when she was so strung out on heroin that her “fashion” consisted of whatever crusty t-shirt she could pull off the floor of her drug den apartment, and then there was her clean phase when she went all glam and started wearing designer gowns. It was during that time that she became a muse for Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci and the pair struck up a friendship.
It was all going great, until Riccardo replaced Courtney with his new muse, Kim Kardashian. Sure, Courtney’s on the outs now, but she’s okay with that… or so she says.
Here’s what she had to say to Style.com about the situation, about her hatred of flower crowns and her love of shopping online:
On her online shopping addiction: “I hate shopping, so I order off of Net-a-Porter. A girl interviewed me for their magazine — this is so awful — she said, “You’re a legend at Net-a-Porter. You’re one of the top five American clients for buying.” I live on Net-a-Porter. And I hate ordering an Italian 42, which is an American 8. I’m investing money in 8s and even 10s in some cases. It’s like, f—, I’ll have to tailor all of this when I lose weight.”
On hating the flower crown trend: “I’m gonna say something, and I’m gonna stand by it, which is this: Flower crowns are over. F— flower crowns. If I see one more f—ing flower crown, I’m going to kick someone’s ass. And let me also say this: If you dig deep enough, you can find a 1986 Details magazine, I’m on the cover in a flower crown, OK?! Talk about ahead of your time! I got thrown a flower crown from an audience member the other day, and I just looked at it and it was plastic flowers and I was like, ‘Nooo! God.’”
On Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci abandoning her as his muse for another client: “His first muse out the gate was me! Everyone’s putting him on a pedestal right now … I met Riccardo downstairs at the Ritz Hotel in Paris, and he told me he wanted me as his muse. I’m like, ‘Givenchy’s muses have been Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O!’ Then I got fat! Then I got on Atkins and I wasn’t fat anymore, so I could wear sample. You know, when the stakes are high, you do lose weight. When you fall in love, if your career’s depending on it, you will find a way to lose weight … Riccardo doesn’t make stuff for me anymore — he found Kim [Kardashian]! But I still love Riccardo, he’s a dear friend.”
Wait a second, isn’t there a photo of Courtney in a flower crown?
Oh, right. What is it you were saying?
In any case, I hate shopping in stores, as well. It’s so nice to shop online – but I imagine with couture clothes especially, it’s even harder to pick them out online since everything fits so differently. Ah, well.

I don’t know what any of this means and I have no real commentary here, but Courtney Love and Mariah Carey are both in Cannes at the moment for the Cannes Lions festival, so they decided to pose for a selfie together to post on Instagram. This is so many different worlds colliding and I sorta love it.
Side note: did you know apparently Mariah was going to contribute vocals to one of the songs on Courtney’s last solo album? Well, kinda. Mariah was at the studio where Courtney was recording and apparently she offered to sing the line “People like you fuck people like me”, which Courtney thought was hilarious. To each her own, I guess.

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!

Apparently there was a letter found in Kurt Cobain‘s wallet when he died, and that letter seemed to be either making fun of Courtney Love or hinting at bigger issues in their relationship – basically accusing her of being a bitch and “siphoning” his money to use for “whoring and doping”:
Of course, that could be seen as a playful thing, since his suicide note had her described as a “goddess”… who can say? Of course, this will just lend more fire to the conspiracy theorists who have been talking shit about Courtney and have always said it’s her fault he’s dead, etc. By the way, newsflash, guys: he killed himself. That’s personal choice. Not a great choice, but a personal one nonetheless. Also, uh… he was a drug addict, as well, so seems like he was siphoning his own money. Also also, why would she need his money for whoring? Don’t whores GET paid rather than pay out? I mean, semantics and all that, but… eh.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve been absolutely obsessed with this Malaysia Airlines saga. How can a plane just disappear? Where in the hell is it? What happened? I seriously Google for up-to-date news at least 10 times a day. I’m waiting for the Dateline special on this shit – though they can’t really do a special until they actually know what happened, I know.
In any case, I love unsolved mysteries (though on a serious note, I feel awful for the innocent victims of whatever happened here and I really do hope – even though it’s unlikely – that they are found alive and safe), and I also love Courtney Love. She’s batshit crazy but sometimes so much so that she actually kinda makes sense. Oh, and she’s sure she found Flight 370.
Here’s what Courtney told New York Magazine’s Daily Intelligencer:
Asked if she’d found the spot herself, Love told Daily Intelligencer, “Yeah I went to the satellite site and just uploaded tons and tons of pictures. I really doubt aliens took it. It’s got to be somewhere. I’m a little obsessive.”
Unfortunately, the spot in question had been previously noticed and ruled out by the crowd-sourcing service Tomnod. “Although it is still an interesting clue, it is looking much more like the other boats operating in the region,” Tomnod said prior to Love’s post. “Keep up the good work.”
“I mean I don’t know anything about aviation per se,” added Love via text.
“I saw an article asked people to help search on Tomnod.com so I decided to give it a shot,” she explained of her methods. “I figured a plane would still be leaking some fuel so I searched for signs of an oil slick. I found one and there appeared to be an object nearby. I don’t know if it is the plane or not, but I figured I’d do my part and bring some awareness to the site, for the sake of all the families involved.”
“I hope they find the plane, I pray they’re still alive, it’s sad and my heart goes out to all those involved,” she said. “It’s the least I can do.”
I love it, and I love Courtney Love’s dedication to solving this crime. I do seriously hope that they find this plane and the passenger soon. I can’t even imagine what their families – and they, if they are still alive – must be going through.
