Ah, our favourite punching bag. Where do we start with Courtney? Her headline creating antics around the world need little introduction. Her most recent antics include pulling off the Soundwave Festival in 2012 because Limp Bizkit were billed above her, and claiming that her late husband Kurt Cobain tried to kill himself three times as a result of over $250 million being stolen from the couple. Yeah.
So it’s with very little surprise but a great amount of pleasure that we’ve uncovered some footage of her performing with her outfit Hole at a concert in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where she berates an audience member for holding up a picture of Cobain before losing her shit and walking off stage in an expletive filled rant.
“I don’t need to see a picture of Kurt, asshole, and I’m gonna have you fucking removed if you keep holding it up,” she said. “I’m not Kurt. I have to live with his fucking shit, and his ghost, and his kid, every day. Throwing that up is stupid and rude and I’ll beat the fuck out of you if you do it again. Go see the fucking Foo Fighters and do that shit.”
There was confusion for a few minutes after the incident that led to the singer storming off stage, with the audience and fellow band mate unsure if she would continue the concert. Eventually one of her bandmates came back out the address the audience telling them that if they wanted to see Courtney Love back on stage they’d have to chant “Foo Fighters are gay”.
A relieved Love returned to the stage and walked up to the microphone saying “I don’t care what you listen to at home, but if a guy takes money off my kid’s table, fuck him.”
Check out the hilarious footage below. Don’t forget to check out our slideshow of Kurt and Courtney’s daughter Frances Bean in a raunchy photoshoot. And also check out our slideshow of when the band loses their shit on stage at their fans.
