For almost a year, Courtney Love spoke to The Fix
about the her life, sobriety and fame. Now her confessions and crazy quotes are collected in a new e-book, “Courtney Comes Clean.” Here are some choice quotes from the enigma wrapped in mystery, sprinkled with drugs that is Courtney Love.
“When you’re used to heroin and cocaine, a few pills doesn’t seem like
the end of the world. As they say in AA, it’s about progress, not
perfection. I mean, abstinence is a nice idea, but I don’t know if it’s
right for everyone. Especially for someone who was nursed on a steady
diet of Valium and Ritalin from the time I was seven, thanks to my fine
mother.”…[But] I’m not a junkie anymore. I’m an establishment woman, g***mmit!
“So getting off drugs has made me feel really sexual and tender…like a 16-year-old virgin.”
“Stupidly I was getting bundles of blow delivered to my house by a
mulatto in a Nissan with a dragging muffler. I was living three blocks
from the Beverly Hills Police Department.”
“The strange thing is, while the crack screwed me up in a lot of ways,
it improved me in certain others. I’ve never been good with numbers, but
when I was on crack I could do math really, really well. I became a
f***ing whiz at calculus.” ?
“Shortly after Kurt’s death, the lawyer who was representing me called
and said, ‘Courtney, you have over $7 million coming to you, but you
need to give me your Social Security number.’ [I couldn’t] remember my
Social Security Number, so I had to lie and make one up.”
“Courtney Comes Clean” is available on the Nook, the iPad and other e-readers and retails for $2.99. You can order a copy here.
