Courtney Love: 'Katy Pery Is Boring and Sad, She's Damaged Goods'

Love hits out at pop star in new interview

Ultimate Guitar

Courtney Love has been speaking with Interview magazine about her thoughts on Katy Perry and Miley Cyrus. The Hole front woman didn’t hold back in her criticisms of the pair, claiming that Cyrus has "a crap stylist" and that Katy Perry is "damaged goods:"

"She [Cyrus] has a crap stylist; at least Katy Perry lives out her insane fantasies and kids love it. I liked Katy when she was in a black shag and the shy girl on Glen Ballard's arm at events. She was damaged goods by the time she got to Capital [Records]. She really worked for it: it's being a career I find so boring it's sort of sad, but what she wears is cute and in her own universe. Miley provided me with endless laughs at the VMAs. The Harajuku Japanese girl bear suit was cute." It was recently announced that Love's autobiography, "My Story," will be released on December 15th. The synopsis for the book is as follows: "Alternatively criticized and vilified, embraced and idolized, Courtney Love has been polarizing opinion from the moment she stormed her way onto the music scene over twenty years ago. Yet everything we know about her has come from the media or her music; she has never before shared the whole story of her life. From her rocky relationship with her hippy parents and her days spent stripping to make ends meet to the truth behind her drug abuse and recovery, this is a riveting story, too crazy not to be true."

    In fairness to her, she must be an expert on damaged goods and crap style at this stage.
    Sometimes I think UG go out of their way to find the worst pictures of Courtney Love.. then I realise she's Courtney Love.
    She just described herself. Katy Perry isn't that bad. Some of her songs are ok and she's extremely hot.
    Both should not be relevant in modern society. Sadly, they are.
    Actually, I doubt Courtney is in any way relevant. Sure, those who listened to 90's music know who she is but other than that, nada.
    It looks like the only time that crack wh*re comes into the public eye is when she's talking shit about more successful, talented musicians.
    "in her own universe" Haha, she's one to speak... crazy crackheaded bitch. I think it's pretty lame the only way this sad excuse of a woman can land any media attention is by voicing the most resentful comments about people who are undoubtedly way more successful than she ever was, or ever will be. Jealousy can be so shameful.
    Katy Perry is sexy, successful and talented. Courtney Love is a rotting bilge rat with a melting face, minimal success, and zero talent.
    To be fair, when Katy Perry isn't doing her all out poppy stuff, she can actually sing pretty well. I'd much rather look and listen to her than anything that talentless crack***** says.
    UG, why do you still give a **** what this bitch has to say? Shit, even another Dave Mustaine article would be better than this.
    Since its another Love article I have to talk about something else then her daily rant against someone relevant then her (not a big fan of Perry, but she's actually talked about then this decaying corpse. "Alternatively criticized and vilified, embraced and idolized" Who the hell embraces and idolizes her...????
    I only want to hear about C Love if she, releases previously unknown music from Hole, or has unknown music, articles, or recordings of Kristen Pfaff RIP Angel
    This is just getting sad. Courtney please stop showing up on UG. You are now comparing 2 people who are way better then you. The only thing you have for a plus is that you married a guy who has thousands more skills then you. Katy Perry has done so much more then you. I am not a fan of Miley but she at least has songs from back before Bangerz came out that were amazing. I barely even know 1 Hole song and dont even want to bother listening to one. Please for my sake and the worlds sake, Shut up..... Just shut up.
