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.

Did everyone eat a shit ton of food yesterday? Are you getting amped up for leftovers today? Well, celebs had their feasts yesterday too, with some looking a bit better than others’. Of course, MUCH of this food was catered and you can tell. Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner tried to pretend they had home cooking, but their Instagram followers weren’t fooled and called them out on having chefs/caterers for the big day, LOL. Justin Bieber‘s dinner looked like the most un-fun thing ever. Just looking at these is making me hungry.

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.
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.

Courtney Love and Gwyneth Paltrow are BFFs. From what Ms. Love describes, they’re very close. What the f-ck do they talk about? I want to know! I want to be there. I just want to sit there and hear everything and dart my eyes side to side like I’m watching a tennis match. She gave us a wonderful glimpse of what that would be like when she spoke to New York Magazine.
NYM: Did you hear about the Gwyneth Paltrow versus Vanity Fair feud?
CL: No, what is it?
She sent an e-mail to friends saying Vanity Fair was “threatening” to put her on their cover, and asked them not to give quotes.
Gwyneth is one of my best friends. If Gwyneth says don’t do it, then fuck you, Vanity Fair! I’m going to stick up for her and be very articulate and you’re going to publish every word I say!
If she had something she wanted to sell, or a movie or something like that, then she’d go to her publicist and say, “Let’s do Vanity Fair.” For Vanity Fair to do a write-around about Gwyneth is uncool and déclassé and boring and terrible of them. And it just shows you where Vanity Fair has fallen. They have Taylor fucking Swift on the cover getting a puppy.
HA! Does Lady Love know that Gwyneth had Taylor over for lunch or dinner or some shit at her place in London?
Love went on to describe her feelings on other people.
Katy Perry: “I’m not trying to be a bitch — she’s a nice girl. But she just bores me.”
Lady Gaga: ”She’s cool [...] I really like the natural thing [she's doing lately] — I mean, I’m sure she’ll go back to Gothic stuff. But she heard that I was going to leave [a party for V magazine] so she came to find me. It was cool — like the popular girl came to tell me not to leave lunch hour.”
Miley Cyrus: “A hillbilly.”
And one more thing about ~~Gwyneth~~:
So you guys really are pals, huh?
She’s a great mentor. Gwyneth has never, ever given up on me — even when I was on Adderall and stuff, and I love her for that.
Well, here’s the obvious question: if they’re such BFF, why did Courtney know about the Vanity Fair email?

Courtney Love was interviewed recently about all kinds of Courtney Love-ing bullshit, and the subject of a biopic came up. Ms. Love offered some of her top actress choices to play herself. (She loves to talk about casting, doesn’t she?) Her top pick was actually kind of surprising. From Huffington Post:
There was talk of a biopic a few years back. I think I changed my mind about it, but I did do a deal with Universal. Scarlett Johansson was into it; I was also into Michelle Williams. These were the people the studio offered to me. It wasn’t me choosing them.
But of those, guess who was her favorite?
I kind of liked Anna Faris, which everyone said I was insane for, but I thought she kind of looked a little bit like me, and she was a little prettier. [That's] the whole point of Hollywood: I was offered to play Janis Joplin. I’m a little prettier than Janis Joplin so it’s always like that. Whatever.
Yeah, I get it. Not just the idea of Faris playing her, but also the idea of a “step above” someone playing someone else. I mean, of course. They’re actors playing “real people.” And most actors are attractive people.
Who would YOU cast as Courtney Love in a biopic?

This isn’t really a new story – I swear Courtney Love‘s been telling this tall tale (because I really don’t believe it’s true) for years. Anyway, Frances Bean was apparently offered Kristen Stewart’s role of Bella in the Twilight films when she was only 13 (uh…) but she turned it down because even at that age, she knew it was a “sexist, Mormon piece of shit”. LOL!
Courtney and Frances have had a pretty strained relationship over the years, but Courtney likes to go on little brag sessions about Frances every once in a while like she’s a model parent and super proud of her. Maybe she is proud of Frances – after all, it takes a lot of skill not to go down the path your parents did.
From The Howard Stern Show:
“When she was 13 she was offered Twilight. She was offered Bella in Twilight… That’s a true story.”
“Somebody just saw a picture of her in a magazine, and sent me this script for Twilight. She was like, ‘That’s a sexist, Mormon piece of shit.’ She was 13. It would have destroyed her life.”
“I’m really good with my daughter right now. We’re really good.”
Oh, lord. I suppose that makes sense considering they haven’t seen each other in person for three years. Much easier to get along with someone when you don’t have to spend any time with them. Watch Courtney spinning her tales below:
