It wouldn’t be Monday morning without waking up to some deliciously NSFW antics from rock’s original angst princess, Hole frontwoman Courtney Love. This weekend at Brazil’s SWU Festival, Courtney mouthed off on stage after being provoked by an audience member holding up an image of her late husband and Nirvana frontman, Kurt Cobain. The emaciated Courtney, mere millimeters away from slipping a nip, burst into an angry tirade, aggressively swearing and giving the finger to the fan who had so offended her in what we can only imagine was an attempt at honoring Cobain.
Spitting into the microphone, Courtney scathed, “You know, I don’t need to see a picture of Kurt, a–hole. And I’m going to have you f–king removed if you keep throwing that up. I’m not Kurt, I have to live with his f–king shit and his ghost and his kid every day. Throwing that up is stupid and rude and I’m going to beat the f–k out of you if you do it again.” Somehow, her rant turned to Dave Grohl and the politics of his relationship with Cobain when they were both in Nirvana. Seething, but with a half smirk on her face, Courtney declared, “Go see the f–king Foo Fighters and do that shit,” before flipping the audience a solid bird and storming off stage.
Courtney only reappeared on stage when the audience was prompted into the homophobic, completely inappopriate chant, “The Foo Fighters are gay,” but it still wasn’t enough to calm the gnashing beast. Ever classy, Courtney got back on stage to slag Dave Grohl some more. “I don’t care who you listen to at home, but a guy takes money off my kids table, f–k him,” she said, throwing in another bird for good measure, all the while smoking a cigarette and on the verge of flashing the audience her breasts. Let’s all have a slow clap for Courtney, because it’s so good to see her busy doing what she does best — being a good role model and totally functional human being. You can watch the whole video here, but be warned, it’s a bit (understatement) rude.
