Courtney Love Will Not Be Oppressed By Your Standards of Beauty

courtney.jpgSomewhere in the middle of Courtney Love’s MySpace blog update today–searching for the key to unlock this most recent collection of glyphs, symbols, and totally made up words, just as one of us went crosseyed–your two Idolators had a weird, headache-inducing moment: We realized we were kind of agreeing with some of the points this terminally batshit lady was making. The subject was the rumors about Courtney’s ever-fluctuating weight–delicately sidestepping the issue of, you know, drugs and stuff in favor of discussing the relative merits of cupcakes (she’s nominally pro)–and the media’s obsession with body size:

i think i lost so much weight so fast that it affected my face , ive put on 10 pounds ( thank you Sprinkles cupcakes wic h i must admit are overrated) bad carbs and every ensure is 250 cALories, drinking 8 a day, tons of antioxidents and good stuff plus carbs GOOD casrbs and its made my cheeks and mouth not so sunken, maybe my goal weight was too much, at 510, i dunno it seemed a very healthy weight according to my dr ande me,

510? Really? That’s an awfully suspicious target weight there, Court.

Anyway here’s where I snip approximately 10,000 words where she waxes about adrenal glands, lipstick, getting dissed by Kim Gordon, the possible location of Atlantis, her plans for a Courtney clothing line, and a code to get 100 extra lives in Paper Mario.

however i must point out the hypocrisy of this crazy hysteria about my weight- i saw a photgraoph of Kiera Knightly recently a series, in one she is wearing a white top has about a 5 foot lomng midriff and a pair of size 0 jeans,that are too big, and IM too thin? i know exactly what a certaibn “perfect” movie star has to caloric intake per day-no more than 700 cals- shes far thinner than me- were the sam eheighth as well- wtf? even Oscar Nominees here and there weigh 20 lbs les sthan me, and i never ever sia di was some pop tart singing griunning dancing “enjtertainer” did i?, when is it my job to be Heidi Klum? of cours ei love a good shoot or cover, who doesnt? but in the context of playing live, it aint purdy it aint ever gonna be it aintt he cover of OK ! magazine , third song sweat with mascara running down cheeks! its what it is, iwa snever puttingasses in seats due to my great and epochal beauty. Read “Addicted to Perfection” by Marion Woodward, its aloifesave and helps so miuch on how to reach your own self esteem and how not to respond to external foprces but to keep yourself to yourself and to take your self esteem unlimimted unshakebale and from within. Noones going to mistake me for Eva Longoria, and my god i am truly hAppy to be who and what i am with my life an dmy expirience i can do so many things help so many people and make such a beautiful clothing line too! and maybe finish this dammed sript one day…

I’ve read fourth grade book reports with a stronger grasp on following through with your thesis statement, but at compared to her last few entries, this is Steinem-level insight. And if you squint and say a little prayer, you can almost see the (slightly less bananas) Courtney of old.

    I think the 510 was referring to her height, 5’10.

  • janine

    I’m not sure it’s possible to discuss Courtney Love’s weight without drugs in the equation. With CL, weight is a measure of crazy; it helps adjust bets in the death pool.

  • Audif Jackson Winters III

    I’ll take that comparison more to heart when Keira Knightley has a demonstrable history of drug addiction and her weight wildly fluctuates within a short time frame.

    I’m also slightly cynical about “impossible body image” and “self esteem” arguments from someone who has had extensive work done on her face and sported fake tits for healthy portions of the last decade.

  • Dickdogfood

    I absolutely agree with her in principle — but have been people really commenting on her weight lately? I sorta thought her main attraction to Schadenfreudanistas everywhere was her nutty-buddy behavior, not her size.

  • Vulture.Protein

    Poor Grammar is all too common. She’s not even special in that department…

  • Paperboy 2000

    Ugh…I actually clicked through on that link to try to find the Paper Mario 100 1-Up code. Kill me now.

  • Trixie from Toronto

    Poor, poor Frances Bean. My teenaged daughter can’t bear it that I even briefly flirted with Facebook; imagine Frances Bean’s horror?

  • King of Pants

    Even a batshit-loco drug fiend/media martyr/Tonya-Harding-at-the-alternaprom is right twice a day.

  • scroll_lock

    It’s bad enough her daughter must claim this wreck as her mother but MUST she be called Frances BEAN at all times? I didn’t realize it was like Lisa MARIE Presley or LITTLE Richard. How about Frances or Fanny Bean?

    Just axin’.

  • Poubelle

    @Nicolars: I thought it was a typo for 150, which wouldn’t be an unreasonable weight (by health standards, anyway).

    I have a friend who types blog entries almost exaclty like Courtney’s when she’s drunk, albeit with more coherency and warnings against tequila.

    the 510 thing is hilarious for many reasons. mostly because courtney love is about 5’4 or MAYBE 5’6 in heels on tippy toes. the only reason i find this funny is because i read in some trashy celeb rag that she was 5’10 in one of their “what celebs weigh” things and sort of chuckled at the additional half-foot of height she gained.

    then i realized that courtney love actually believes she did grow six inches recently. perhaps satan himself has been trying valiantly to suck her into the depths of hell but all it did was stretch her out 6 inches. or you know, pilates.

    The media presents a false standard of beauty? You don’t say there, Nosejob.

  • ozacrot

    Guys, she correctly spelled “epochal”.
