The late Kurt Cobain’s wife, Courtney Love, says she considered committing suicide earlier this month - and that Courtney Love is already dead.
In a sense.
Revealing that she is a danger to herself, Love told NME, "I think a lot of people idealize suicide. I understand it. I had an episode two weeks ago."
"I was tempted to jump out of a window. I'm not saying why but the reason behind it is self-loathing. Wouldn't it be better if I was not there?"
I've always been pretty self-destructive. I need protection from myself," Love said, adding that she has decided to stop using her stage name.
"Courtney Love is dead," she said. "We've all decided we don't like her any more. We love her on stage, but I don't need her in my life."
The number 5150 comes to mind.
Whatever surname she goes by, Courtney is insane.
Asked how she would prefer to be addressed in the future, she replied: "Courtney Michelle. The name Courtney Love is a way to oppress me."
The 45-year-old singer, born Courtney Michelle Harrison, is back on the road with her band, Hole, which is releasing a new album this month.
Lastly, she says she's "sick" of answering questions about her marriage to Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain: "I am not his spokesperson on Earth."
Unless she decides to weigh in on Robert Pattinson casting rumors, that is. It's a selective thing. What would her late husband be like now?
"I don't know what he'd be like now, he could be into society girls, be into fat girls, he could be homosexual. We don't know, he died at 27."
So profound. Probably a good thing their daughter Frances Bean Cobain isn't living with Courtney Love/Michelle/Whatever for the time being.
