Hey, guess who has a new blogging gig? That’s right, crazy ol’ Courtney Love. Because in light of all her legal woes related to publicly saying a bit more than she should, what this woman really needs is ANOTHER web-based platform from which to open mouth, insert foot, as she is wont to do.
Her first post at xoJane – supposedly about her travels to Istanbul, Turkey (I guess?) – is just about as incoherent and disjointed as you might expect:
I don’t really know Turkey. I do LA, UK, South of France. I’ve been to the Hamptons twice. I’m not sure. It might not be potentially legal for me to go the Hamptons. I get Malibu. I’ve lived in Malibu. I wrote a song called “Malibu.” I don’t understand the Hamptons. I feel like it’s the band Muse. I’ve never gotten into Muse. You can’t just listen to one song. I’m like 8 albums behind. I will someday do the Muse thing. I was speaking to Chris Martin about two years ago about Muse, and I said, “You know, I’m going to hold that. I’ll put a pin in it.” Because I want to give them the respect that they deserve.
Uhh… okay. I think?
In classic Courtney Love style, she also makes a point of name dropping like a motherfucker (Michael Stipe, Tilda Swinton, Donatella Versace, and so forth, ad nauseum), and takes a nice little jab at Gawker’s site, Jezebel: “I kind of want to slam Jezebel, but I won’t. I’ll save it. Because otherwise the Gawker people will torture me for the next two weeks. Because Jezebel I used to read, but then they do slut shaming. Jane is anti-shame. Pro-slut.”
Nice self-control there, Courtney.
We have all of this and more to look forward to in this new weekly(“ish”) column! HUZZAH! Plus, bizarre, self-aggrandizing photos like this accompanying the finely-tuned prose:
Oh be still my trainwreck loving heart.
