Love blames hellraiser brand on being a womanDecember 12th, 2007 - 4:37 pm ICT by admin
Washington, Dec 12 (ANI): Rock musician Courtney Love insists that she doesn’t deserve her hellraiser reputation, claiming she is only considered as such because she’s a woman.
The former Hole frontwoman, who lost custody of her 15-year-old daughter Frances Bean for 2 years because of drug addiction, eventually kicked the habit in 2006.
The 43-year-old singer insists that she doesn’t deserve her hellraiser reputation, claiming her antics wouldn’t be quite so extraordinary had she been a man.
“There is a disconnect between who I am and how I am perceived. I used to play up to it a bit when I was on drugs because who cares: sex, drugs, rock’n'roll, waaaaah, Contactmusic quoted Love, as saying.
“I always seem to come number two to Keith Richards in lists of greatest hell-raisers of all time. But if I was a guy, I wouldn’t even be on the list! I didn’t know it was such a guy’s job. It’s like playing football in high heels and lipstick, no wonder it smears,” she added. (ANI)
