Courtney Love Drops Insults In Interview: “Miley Cyrus Has A Crap Stylist. Katy Perry Is So Boring!”
Former Hole frontwoman Courtney Love still doesn’t know how to keep her pie-hole shut! The 49-year-old controversial punk rocker posed for the November issue of Interview Russia and spent half her interview dissing the style of pop singers Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry.
“She has a crap stylist,” Love said in regards to Cyrus. “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 Capitol [Records]. She really worked for it: ‘It’ 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 little bear suit was cute.”
Wearing high-end designs from Prada, Emilio Pucci, and Hedi Slimane for the magazine, Love explained her approach to fashion. “I look at simple chic as what works best for my age, but I also want the prettiest gown, not the most boring, and the sharpest,” she said. “I love Marchesa for this and I love Calvin Klein classics and [Michael] Kors, and Chanel gowns. The latter mixes my love of Edwardian and Victorian and flapper with chic. I’m not Daphne Guinness and I don’t have much to prove in rock and roll—that I have down pat. But for my newly committed career, acting again, I’m going to have to really pull off a chic and great look and never get it wrong with too many youthful details such as the ones that inspire me for my line. I love boho, but there’s an appropriate way to wear it. I like Jason Wu, Altuzzara, Valentino and Westwood, as well as Saint Laurent.”
And while the widow of late Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain knows what to wear now, she does admit to committing a few fashion crimes along the way. “Obviously Lycra and Spandex and rubber were all bad ideas, but I’m very open; I always try,” Love admits. “It doesn’t mean I’m Kate Moss and always nail it. Kate and I went to a store in Notting Hill and purchased the same exact almost Victorian capelet; I wore mine first and got slammed for it and she wore hers the following week in an identical boho outfit and it was heralded; it’s all about context.”
She continued: “Weight plays heavily into it, too, and facial beauty. No one could have worn that Givenchy couture gown that I tried on a few times three years ago except Ciara to the VMAs—a black girl with curves in the right places. On me, it looked like a belly dancer.”
Do you agree with Love’s opinions on the style choices of Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry?
