Courtney Love collides with Internet


Courtney Love, who in recent months has been photographed looking like a pasty, skeletal shell of her former punk rock Grammy-nominated Hole-fronting self, provides the most head-spinning peek today into a troubled soul this side of an Augusten Burroughs novel.

In some 60 posts on her MySpace blog, the mercurial widow of rock god Kurt Cobain rails against her housekeeper who she says swiped millions of dollars worth of designer duds. Celeb blog D-Listed describes the rant as the unfortunate result of "OCD, meth, CLove and a MacBook" colliding.

Who knew she was a "Twilight" fan? She says she's hitting the premiere tonight (go ahead and insert vampire joke here, heartless readers). We'll try to run down those photos for you tomorrow.

Somewhere in Love's grammatically whack, typo-ridden stream-of-consciousness was this tidbit: "i'm presenting on a major awards show not THE one butthe OTHER one."

Can't wait for that.

Not that long ago, Love (pictured here earlier this year, in slightly better times) was part of some of those awards shows, having earned a good deal of praise for her budding acting career in the '90s and a Golden Globe nomination for "The People vs. Larry Flynt." Her band, Hole, racked up five Grammy nominations and a couple platinum records before imploding in a fireball of drug overdoses and severed relationships.

And now there's this blog entry, which just really makes us sad: "maybe im getting plump, everyones saying how proud they are of me for putting on weight, but i hate it, i know that size 4 isnt fat."

Intervention? Anybody?

Oscar Contenders

  • So "The Dark Knight" didn't make it into the final five after all, never mind that critical and popular support. Let's just call the comic-inspired mega-hit "The Biggest Snubee."

    Here are the best picture contenders in a race that, two weeks away from the Oscars, seems to be a foregone conclusion ("Slumdog") unless there's a come-from-behind possibility ("The Reader" anyone?)

    "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," with Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett; the politically timely "Milk;" rags-to-riches fairy tale, "Slumdog Millionaire," Holocaust best-seller-based drama "The Reader," and Watergate-era biopic "Frost/Nixon."

    Could "Button" and "Slumdog" split the vote, allowing another film to take the prize? Doesn't seem likely. After having clung to "Button" for months as what we thought would be the Academy voters' top vhoice, our money's now on "Slumdog." Momentum can't be ignored.

    Watch this blog for updates, ephemera and all manner of postulating.

  • Mmmmm, chocolate Oscar. Not every star will walk away from the 81st annual Academy Awards with a trophy, but if they hit the high-profile Governor's Ball they can have pastry chef Sherry Yard's gold-dusted candy version. Also on the menu from celeb chef Wolfgang Puck is tuna tartare in sesame miso cones, chopped Chino Farms vegetable salad with ginger soy vinaigrette, Maine lobster and caviar. Serve it up!
