Always in the limelight, Courtney Love has revealed she approached an online company who promised to remove bad press on the star from the internet.

No stranger to making wild accusations in public forums - most recently involving her false accusations that former Nirvana drummer, Dave Grohl, made a move on her daughter Frances Bean Cobain. Forced to apologise on Twitter, where she has previously been sued for tweeting offensive and incorrect tweets.

"I'm not a social network genius, as evidenced by being the first and only person ever to have a Twitter lawsuit. At the time that lawsuit happened, I didn't even really fully get what Twitter was for or how it worked," she said.

Hearing about an online company that deals with removing compromising photos and articles, Love read more into them approached them so see how they could help her.

"I haven't Googled myself in almost two months. No way. I make other people do it. That stuff is just so dark. My online persona is a disaster - that's not me," she said. "You can ask for help from these companies that supposedly remove stuff from the internet for you, but they're hilarious. [One company] was like, waiting for me when I called. They said they were going to charge me $250,000 per one page of results. A quarter-million dollars per page? Are they joking?"

"I'm in entertainment, I can take all the sh*t you throw at me to some extent. But $250,000 to alter the c**p out there about you on the Internet is just absurd."

Love has instead promised to avoid reading articles on herself and try to censor what she writes on social media websites.

Thanks for the report to Gigwise.com.

    What about redeeming yourself and stop being an utter and proper c@nt? You could give Kurt's money to charity for a start.

    Yes, despite the fact that they oh-so-hilariously had U.B.I.T.C.H. on the front page last week.

    If you took UG articles seriously you'd think that Hole was the most important band on Earth.

    Whatever she says gets put online... So saying something else will just make the problem worse...

    I can't remove any of the shit she's said in the past but here's a little advice for the future: 1. Lay low 2. Learn to act right If you feel bad about taking free advice, write me a check for $250,000

    This is like having a leaky pipe and continually mopping up the mess instead of fixing the damn pipe. How about you stop saying retarded things that get you posted all over the internet in the first place dumbass.

    1. Be a crazy drug addicted bitch your whole life. 2. Kill your rockstar husband. 3. Sell rights to his shit. 4. Complain about what happens with them, but keep money. 5. Abuse daughter. 6. Cry more. 7. PROFIT

    I'm a big enough guy to take the abuse that this will bring upon myself... If you made a load of money, and you died, would you want your widow to give it all away to charity?

    Always in the limelight,
    I honestly would have completely forgotten about Courtney Love if it wasn't for this site. But I keep coming back.

    "...My online persona is a disaster - that's not me," yeah cause your Real Life persona is even shittier and people think even less of you then they do online. Also dude from the Beastie Boys was reported dead way after UG would have made the updates to the webpage otherwise it would obviously be news.

    If she's going to remove all that shit from the internet, she'd be paying more then the US National Debt.
    iamryanallen
    she makes it seem like the internet is the cause of her going on irratic and incoherant rants ....okay, so courtney, explain the preceeding 30 some odd years before your twitter account
    flame_mc
    I just had to watch her picture and the title and I rated the post with 1.0. Stop giving spotlight to this woman (?) please, UG.

    No. Just no. Ok, she could just spend $250 000 per page of results, or she could do what normal people do and not consistantly bitch through every media potral known to her. As you'd expect, for Courtney Love this is actually a tough decision.

    You have to remember that Courtney Love wasn't too smart before class A drugs destroyed her brain.

    Its not possible to rid her of her rep though. Is she going to hand out candy, I will throw it away.

    So she wants to hire people to remove her own posts and rants and her self-generated bad publicity? I guess not acting like a ****ing psycho never entered her brain. +1 for crack and heroin.

    that is an exception. all that courtney love writes or says should be censored, since it is all garbage. anyway, if she wants help, she can buy a cyanide pill. that would help everyone.

    All I read in that statement is: "I'M NOT A social network GENIUS , AS EVIDENCED BY BEING the first and only person ever to have A TWIT ter lawsuit. At the time that lawsuit happened, I didn't even really fully get what Twitter was for or how it worked"

    THANK YOU!!!

    Nobody in history has ever thought Hole to be particularly good. Take away all publicity folklore and celeb gossip, Nirvana wer fairly average in hindsight. Neither band has actually done anything for years. WHY DO I NEED TO HEAR ABOUT THIS WOMAN!!!!

    She sounds like a good and righteous woman. I think she's changed, everybody should love her now.
