The Queen of Scream
Courtney Love talks setting trends, reuniting with Hole, and her struggle to be cheese-free
By Alex Catarinella
Published June 16, 2014

When Courtney Love calls you, you answer. We did exactly that recently, when Love—who's been touring in Europe to promote her new scream-o-heavy, double A-sides, "You Know My Name" and "Wedding Day"—called us from her Nottingham hotel in the U.K. Our chat (which lasted for more than an hour) with the enthusiastic, focused, and seemingly very happy Love covered topics such as her getting back into acting; being Riccardo Tisci's first muse; the hopeful Hole reunion; her absolute loathing of flower crowns; being Net-a-Porter's number one client; why she ditched her "social media friend" Miley Cyrus' recent party; and, of course, her cheese addiction. Above all, it seems, Love is set on a comeback. With her slew of forthcoming projects, the self-proclaimed "grande dame of rock" is looking to reclaim the throne.

* * *
So, what's your typical routine these days before you hit the stage? What's on your tour rider?

I'm basically chanting and practicing my lines. I need to get back to sample size and I need to lose 10 pounds and I can't seem to lose it. I have so much artisanal cheese on my rider and artisanal baked goods. Because, honest to God, the ****ing fast food in this country is just as bad as 1974. They have not improved. I know there's "food" in Great Britain now and there are foodies. On the High Street, they have Pret a Manger. So, they have food now, you can eat in England now. I remember in 1981 when I first moved here on my own, you still couldn't eat. You'd live on fish and chips in the day with 11,000-year-old grease. I tried to take a bite of fish and chips last night and I threw up. It was so disgusting. I was in Nottingham and it was 2 a.m., so, you know, whatever. I know a place in L.A. where I can get a croque-monsieur and it's delicious.

Cheese addiction is totally a real thing—right up there with sugar and caffeine addiction.

I'm addicted to cheese and sugar. As long as I can get my bits of sugar when I need it and my one cappuccino, I'm cool. When they ask me if I want dinner, I'm like, "No, I want Brie and crackers." It's all I've been living on and it's not good for you and it makes you fat. I hate shopping, so I order off of Net-a-Porter. A girl interviewed me for their magazine—this is so awful—she said, "You're a legend at Net-a-Porter. You're one of the top five American clients for buying." I live on Net-a-Porter. And I hate ordering an Italian 42, which is an American 8. I'm investing money in 8s and even 10s in some cases. It's like, ****, I'll have to tailor all of this when I lose weight. This part I'm auditioning for, it's the part of a sheriff, so it's not a fashion look. It's a chunky gun, khaki pants, wide ***. But you have to have a good figure on television—you can't get away with a pot belly.

Let's talk about your very angry, albeit very glam, new music video for "You Know My Name."

The director is the girl named Maximilla Lukacs. She's done all of Karen Elson's stuff. She's hyper-feminine, surreal, really feminine imagery. She's not, like, a director for Too $hort the rapper or whatever. I called [David] LaChapelle first, because I initially had a budget. I initially had a budget for LaChapelle to get out of bed. By that, I mean he'd basically do it for what he considers free—free for David is, like, 100 grand. He can't do what he wants without 100 grand. And then the budget took a big hit. I didn't wanna ask Steven [Klein], because he just did the Brooke Candy video. She's great. I wrote one song on her record. He chose his **** this year and it's Brooke and I'm fine with that.

In the video, you're literally destroying "hyper-feminine" imagery—it's a massive chandeliers, disco balls, rose petals, glitter explosion, all the while you're clad in a gown in a fancy boudoir.

Maximilla has never done really hard-core before, so I thought it'd be really good for her. She's only done really pretty songs with really pretty girls doing pretty songs being pretty and ethereal. All the prettiness! I'm gonna say something, and I'm gonna stand by it, which is this: Flower crowns are over. **** flower crowns. If I see one more ****ing flower crown, I'm going to kick someone's ***. And let me also say this: If you dig deep enough, you can find a 1986 Details magazine, I'm on the cover in a flower crown, OK?! Talk about ahead of your time! **** flower crowns! I can show you pictures of me that were taken when Warhol was still alive—that long ago. I'm wearing a Westwood dress—oh, God, that Westwood dress! It was my most precious thing. Wacky Leigh Bowery heels, that Dianne Brill moment, and my original nose—which was huge—and I'm wearing a flower crown. Flower crowns are ****ing dead. I got thrown a flower crown from an audience member the other day, and I just looked at it and it was plastic flowers and I was like, "Nooo! God." At Coachella, how many ****ing boys were wearing flower crowns? They're done!

What's the deal with you attending the Diesel show in Venice back in April? Are you working with them? What's going on with your line?

Renzo [Rosso] of Diesel—we made friends. I'm talking with him as well as DollsKill.com about working together and financing for my line. Dolls Kill is like the new Nasty Gal but ten times more hip. It's where my daughter shops. She doesn't shop at Nasty Gal—actually, she does! I found a sweater of hers that said Nasty Gal, and I was like, "Busted!" But she's got her own little look going on, and I'm like, "What's your situation with this look? Where are you getting this from?" There's a little store in L.A. called Pop Killer—she's been going there since she was 12. The way I keep Net-a-Porter in business, she keeps them in business, only more so, because they're much cheaper.

Anyway, Renzo is just a really cool billionaire—he's the only billionaire who I've met that's happy. He hired Nicola Formichetti to reboot Diesel. He also bought Marni and Margiela. I'm hoping me and Renzo can make a deal, but if not, he's still a really good friend. So that's why I went. I went for my own self-purposes—I didn't just go to go. I went to see Renzo and see if we could become business partners.

That'd be a fashion week runway show we'd wanna/need to see!

Mitch Grossbach from Relativity Media asked me, "Do you have five years to dedicate to become Prabal Gurung? Do you have five years to dedicate to become Altuzarra or Jason Wu?" To be honest with you, I love fashion, but if I have five years and I could do anything, I prefer to go to Harvard and get an education, and then also pattern-cutting on the side so I can make my own ****ing clothes. I don't think Harvard has a pattern-cutting course, so…My point was, I want to be at the same level Victoria Beckham is at and the same level that L'Wren [Scott] was at—God bless.

You haven't done the nineties grunge baby-doll-tiara combo since…the nineties. Do you find that there's pressure to have that influence in your line? Does it bother you?

Yeah, all the time. It bothered me initially, but not as much as flower crowns. It's the story of my life, so why not acknowledge it? I haven't started a really solid trend since then, so when girls show up in tiaras at shows, I don't get pissed about it at all. I think it's funny. It's like, "OK. I did that. For like, a month." If I'd had known it'd have so much impact, I would have worn 10,000 other things. Stevie Nicks has one look, Patti Smith has one look. Not everyone has to be Madonna and twist their looks. But there is something called maturing. I'm on the road, I'm playing 2,000-seat theaters, I'm not playing giant arenas, I don't have massive costume changes, I don't have to have my body be a complete machine. It has to be functioning and healthy and I'm trying to be cheese-free. If you Google me and cheese, I did a whole series of interviews back in the nineties about me and cheese, and here we are talking about cheese again. It's the enemy, it makes you fat! I can't stop! I'm really picky about my cheese. If I'm gonna put it in my body, I wanna make sure it's really good and not ****ing Velveeta or something.

Yeah, Velveeta is probably never a good idea.
I don't have body dysmorphia at all. I'm actually a narcissist about my body to an extreme degree. When I was hitting 192 pounds, I was posing for Italian Vogue. They Photoshopped the fat away. I didn't even realize how fat I was. Once I got on the scale, I was like, "Oh, my God, this calls for emergency measures. Where's the Atkins?" It works completely. You can do it maybe five times in your life, but that's about it. That's all your kidneys can take. It absolutely works, but it just makes you stinky and gross and vile. You can't have sex. Your breath stinks. I did it in rehab in 2006 and lost 30 pounds off of it. I needed to lose that weight.

No SoulCycle or Tracy Anderson for you?

****, no! No! I'm a rock star. The only thing I'm interested in is yoga and chanting. I'm OK without doing cardio. Look, I like to smoke, I like a little tequila before I go onstage, I like fine wine. Everything in moderation, except I have a problem with cheese!

And what about smoking?

I enjoy smoking. And if it's going to kill me, which it probably is, I will have enjoyed many years of a fabulous life…where I couldn't quit smoking. I have the vape. They're very serious about the fines in this country. Apparently, last time here, we lost about 100,000 pounds in fines for smoking in the venues.

But let's be real, it wouldn't be a Courtney Love show without Courtney Love smoking.

It's a Bette Davis movie without a cigarette! As long as I get my nicotine in, I'm OK.

Can you elaborate on your history with Riccardo Tisci? How do you feel about his newfound relationship with Kim Kardashian?

His first muse out the gate was me! Everyone's putting him on a pedestal right now—he's soaking it up, he loves it! He's a gorgeous Italian boy who works his ****ing *** off his whole life, his mother taught him to sew. When I first met him, I thought he was gonna straight-up copy Hedi Slimane. I met Riccardo downstairs at the Ritz Hotel in Paris, and he told me he wanted me as his muse. I'm like, "Givenchy's muses have been Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O!" Then I got fat! Then I got on Atkins and I wasn't fat anymore, so I could wear sample. You know, when the stakes are high, you do lose weight. When you fall in love, if your career's depending on it, you will find a way to lose weight. But anyway, I remember very vividly Riccardo talking about the Spanish bullfighters and how he wanted his menswear line to be, and it was very much not Hedi. Riccardo doesn't make stuff for me anymore—he found Kim! But I still love Riccardo, he's a dear friend.

Have you ever been denied wearing something because of a designer's relationship to another celebrity?

I was doing the cover of Dazed & Confused, and there was a Prada dress—the kind of iconic one made out of chandelier crystals. But I couldn't use it because Gaga needed it. It's happened to me before, though. When Jennifer Lopez was in her height of movie stardom, she was the only person who was allowed to wear Valentino and/or Dolce for the entire award show season. We were kind of friendly and I met her for brunch. And apparently she told them, "Courtney can wear whatever she wants," which was really nice of her.

Which designers have always been Team Courtney?

The people who have been the most consistent and the best with me has been Marchesa. They are always ****ing there for me, and I can't thank them enough. Tiny, medium, and hopefully never large again, but they've always been there for me. I know I'm not getting the A-list gown—not that they make rock band A-list gowns anyway. I know the game, I'm not triple A-list, I'm not Rihanna or Jennifer Lawrence, and I'm not getting that gown. I'm not currently on the cover of Vogue. It's just the way show biz is and the way fashion responds to it. You're up one day, you're down the next. If I had to live like that all of the time, I would go ****ing insane.

It doesn't seem like you do too many fashion week shows and red carpets these days, but when you do, you're all over The Daily Mail, Page Six, etc. How do you deal with the pressure to look good?

I don't mind getting dressed up if I'm going out to a ball. Get me the finest jewels! But if I'm going out to fashion show after fashion show and have to get photographed for fifteen ****ing minutes and I have to do all of that grooming and be perfect head-to-toe for fifteen ****ing minutes, I can't do it. I don't wanna do it. You have to get every outfit absolutely planned ahead of time, match your handbag to your sunglasses, your hair has to be perfect. That's why I don't do fashion week. I understand why Anna Wintour has the same hair and sunglasses, because it's just simple. Keep it simple or else you're gonna drive yourself insane. Miley Cyrus had this party the other night in London, and I said I was rehearsing. No offense to Miley because I like her—we're social media friends. I have no interest in going to this party, and it would've been an all-nighter with so much energy and paparazzi, and I don't wanna do it. I've been in this business for twenty-five years. Some journalist said to me the other day that she thought I was addicted to fame, and I was like, "Are you ****ing kidding me?" If it's not about the music, about the product I'm putting out, the acting, then I'm not interested.

Can we expect the Hole reunion to happen soon?

We have a strategy, we have a marketing plan. It's very highly controlled and it'll roll out really well. We'll get all of the festivals and stuff. I don't know if we'll get Coachella or not. They can ****ing put the worst band in the world at Coachella for three years and no one will catch on. It's just a social gathering now—at this point it's Burning Man. I've gone two years. I hate it because I'm not playing, so if I'm not playing, what the **** am I doing there?

Courtney Love sassy, quotable, wiser at 50
Quote:
LOS ANGELES— “There are things that are starting to sag that shouldn’t be sagging,” Courtney Love quipped in her raspy voice about having turned 50 just a day before this recent interview.
Surprised with a birthday cake and a bouquet of roses, the musician-actress blew a candle and seemed genuinely moved. The 1990s’ “Queen of Rock,” putting away her wild and sordid past behind her, looked fit and lovely in a dress. She was sassy, frank and quotable, too.
“I have two gray hairs; my hairstylist found them,” she said. “I named them after lawyers.” (More about lawyers later.) While Courtney declared that she “did not dread” turning 50, she said those two gray strands in her blonde hair were enough to tell her that “it” was happening.
“The key is to just embrace it gracefully and not address it with fillers or plastic surgery,” said the famous widow of Nirvana front man, Kurt Cobain. “I am done with that. I don’t want it anymore. I haven’t done any of that stuff for years.”
“Physically, I am older and, obviously, I don’t do drugs anymore,” declared the woman who abused heroin and cocaine and overdosed on a prescription drug in 2003. Career-wise, she has some good news. The Golden Globe Best Actress nominee in 1997 for her acclaimed performance in “The People vs. Larry Flynt” landed a recurring pivotal role in FX’s series, “Sons of Anarchy.”
And the same woman, who fronted the grunge band Hole, just came out with a new single, “You Know My Name.”

Monkey on her back
She admitted, “I do have a monkey on my back, though—smoking. I am going to get rid of it. I use this (she took out an e-cigarette from her purse and blew a plume of vapor several times). I am trying to quit with this.”
The former punk princess pointed out, “You can’t smoke after 50. It’s kind of a bad love. So the drugs have passed, but the nicotine is still very dominant. On the set, I smoke. It is the last sin I need to get rid of. I have many sins.”
What are those other sins? “Just sex,” she replied with a smile, her blue eyes twinkling with naughtiness. “But… it’s good exercise.”
Love, romance, crushes
Sex makes her happy, she stressed. Also, “Love, romance, having a crush on somebody is always nice; them having a crush back [on you] is nicer.”
Does she like dating much younger men? “I don’t go that way so much. I know women who do.” Like Cher? “That’s who I was talking about,” she quickly answered. “Okay, so I had this Ralph Lauren underwear model and he is, like, 32 and gorgeous. But I couldn’t do it because I felt like his mom. I come with a lot of baggage, so it takes a lot of balls to be seen in public with me. However, I do date and I am pretty active. I just do it very discreetly.”
Courtney is glad that she’s on good terms again with Frances Bean Cobain, 21, who was barely 2 years old when Kurt committed suicide in 1994. Courtney had to battle for custody of Frances at least a couple of times. Frances, a visual artist, was estranged from her mother for several years.
“Seeing my child last night” made Courtney happy. She related, “I went to a very famous art dealer’s house with my daughter. We were with friends that I have had for so long, like David LaChapelle, Bono and (Michael) Stipe—good, stalwart people that I look up to who have done really well.”
The San Francisco native acknowledged that having money enabled her to isolate herself, and drugs fueled her much-publicized bizarre and confrontational behavior in the past. “I had [so much] money that I could isolate [myself],” she confessed. “Then drugs started seeping in. It started with prescription meds, then illegal drugs.
Out of control
“I feel bad and guilty about where things got out of control sometime around 2003 and 2004,” said the performer who had a reputation for being difficult and self-destructive. “I feel

terrible about how I allowed the estate to run out of control because of my lack of control. I had the wrong lawyers around me. I now have the right lawyers. [Frances is] covered; she’s got a great attorney.
“Unfortunately, in our business, attorneys are a fact of life,” she said, explaining why she named her two gray hair strands after lawyers. “You’ve got to have the right one. I went through every top entertainment attorney in this town until I found attorneys I felt safe with. For the first time in about 24 or 25 years since I could afford them, I finally have good attorneys. And good relationships with the attorneys that I considered my enemies, who had embezzled me. This is Hollywood—get used to it. I have to come to terms with that and my rage about that. Just let it go.”

Buddhist practice
“I was a lot angrier about the past when I was on drugs,” Courtney disclosed. “By letting the past go and, in my Buddhist practice, really reaching out to myself, I let all that rage at those lawyers go. I am responsible for my drug intake. But I was driven mad by how unbelievably obnoxious this ripping apart of Kurt’s estate was. I am not educated but I am not stupid.
“I don’t have a degree in finance, economics, law. I don’t have an MBA. I was full of rage. I did a lot of drugs to get away from that rage. It happened, it’s done. In this lifetime, we all lose money. There’s always a guy in your group of friends who’s pissed off about that guy who stole $116,000 or $42,000 from that one guy. That bitter, enraged guy? I don’t want to be that guy.”
Asked about her tattoos, Courtney obliged, “One says ‘Let It Bleed.’” She showed the ink on her upper right arm. “It’s a Rolling Stones song. It’s not the greatest, but I like the title.”
She added about her tattoos, “This was when Frances and I got estranged. I went down the street in St. Marks Place (New York). I just got a bad tattoo. I had to get a good tattoo artist to clean it up. But getting tattoos just to get tattoos is really lame and poseur-ish.”
‘K’ on her tummy
“I have a ‘K’ on my tummy,” she said about her ink tribute to her late husband. There are flower tattoos all over that are “cherry blossoms which symbolize all my great loves. I have ‘reserved’ two cherry blossoms for secret places… in the future.”
If Courtney could talk to her 20-year-old self, what would she say? She replied, laughing, “When you hit the A-list, don’t do drugs. Quit smoking before you start. Don’t text anyone after 9 p.m., no matter what, or you will ruin all your boyfriends. Just be really grateful. Be humble. Don’t be a b****. You can’t be bad to yourself—who wants to be around a mean person?”

part 2
Quote:
LOS ANGELES – To conclude our two-part column on Courtney Love, we feature the musician-actress (the day after her birth anniversary) sharing details about a biopic on her late husband, iconic Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain.
“The biopic should start within the next year or so,” Courtney announced.
Who gets to play the lead singer, composer and guitarist? “CAA (Creative Artists Agency) directly sent me actors’ (demo) reels,” she explained. “That was really tough because these boys are so pretty, so cute. I won’t name names because I don’t want to jinx it for anyone but these are 25-year-olds who are blond, gorgeous and the new Brad Pitts. There’s a ton of those. Some are really good actors, not just pretty faces.
“I don’t want to be the person who makes that decision,” she said on casting an actor for Kurt. “Let’s leave that to the agents; I have great agents now. But I will have a say in it.”
In the meantime, there’s this documentary on Kurt: “Brett Morgen, a documentary director, who did ‘The Kid Stays in the Picture’ and ‘Crossfire Hurricane,’ has done a Kurt Cobain documentary. He’s based it a little bit on the movie ‘Lenny,’ the one with Dustin Hoffman. It’s not like a ‘Behind the Music’ doc. The only people talking in it are (Nirvana bassist) Krist Novoselic, Kurt’s mother and me. It’s vérité, mostly.”
Many folks want to come on board this doc, she noted. “I mean, really cool producers and I am friends with a few of them. I can’t have those friendships be contingent on whether [or not] I green-light them for that movie. Everyone wants to throw money at this (sic). Let the agency protect me from this. It’s really, really important. I am letting my agency decide a lot of things because I don’t want to be talking to some hot producer guy, make out with him and then have him go, ‘So, baby, do you own the rights?’ That has happened.”
Courtney is also flooded with all kinds of requests from young actors hoping to land the important role. “Some beautiful blond, tragic, gorgeous actor boy is hitting on me, and why? He wants to play Kurt. So I am moving that over to the agency side. I am not Cecil B. DeMille or anything like that. I don’t want to be the producer per se.”
But she wants to retain 100 percent control of the biopic. “I do have a say in it. So do Frances, and Krist and Dave (Grohl), for that matter, if it touches on Nirvana—and it will. I am leading the charge because it’s time to do this.”
Courtney is also excited about having a recurring pivotal role in “Sons of Anarchy” and grateful to the series’ creator. “I thank Kurt Sutter for taking a chance on me, bailing me out of actor jail, as we call it. It takes a showrunner like Kurt to have the balls to do that. It’s now up to me to make it. It’s different—it’s television.”
She fought to be acting again. “It’s about being relentless [though] not to the point of rudeness; you have to have the mojo to just get up, dust yourself off. I didn’t want to start acting again until 2012, when I saw a Sean Penn indie movie. I went to his agent and I went to him and I was like, ‘How do I get back into this business?’”
Courtney recounted what happened when she shot her first scene for “Sons of Anarchy”: “I am pretty comfortable in my own skin but I will tell you that the other day, my first time to act in 11 years, I choked on the first master take. I just choked. I was trembling. I thank God I was across from someone as good as Katey Sagal. She hugged me and I got into her vibe. Every take got better and better. I don’t choke, man! And I choked! And I am not on anything.”
She continued: “I can’t tell you what [projects] I passed on; you would freak out. Some of it was crap, but most of it was either blockbusters or stuff that won Oscars and Golden Globes. I wasn’t ready for it. Milos (Forman) told me it was going to happen, but I just fell apart.”
Dated Edward Norton
Courtney volunteered a less-known phase in her life: “I dated Edward Norton for some time. That’s an amicable friendship now. Everything is good. We had very different upbringings. He’s Edward Norton Harrison the Fifth. He went to Yale, and I am Courtney Love from Juvenile Hall.
“We would look at scripts together. I am not blaming him for anything. I am responsible for where I sit today, but it was definitely a time of confusion. I had one agent telling me this and another telling me that. The embezzlement and the messing with the head and all this stuff started 22 years ago. The minute Kurt and I got married, it was game on— we are going to mess with you. We are going to mess with your finances. We are going to mess with your life. The media is going to mischaracterize you, blah blah. I didn’t know my own self. Now, at 50, I know what I want.”
Mentors, mentoring
While she’s back collaborating with Hole’s original guitar player, Eric Erlandson, Courtney ruled out a reunion concert tour with the band. “I don’t want to get on the oldies circuit,” said the singer-actress who just released “You Know My Name,” a new single. “I don’t need to do that for money. I want to put out music that is relevant today. [Being] one of the last chicks in a rock ‘n’ roll band is a weird place to be. It’s scary not to be selling out. I got presents from my mentors, Bono and Michael Stipe, yesterday. I have a heavy mentor-near disciple relationship with Bono and Michael Stipe.
“I got presents from them yesterday. I looked at the year on the bottle of wine from Bono. It was my birth year; I couldn’t believe it. I was like, holy moly! It’s tough to put Hole back together and make sure that it’s relevant.”
She enjoys mentoring female musicians in turn. “I have mentored a lot of women and watched them do really well. I have a close relationship with Florence Welch (Florence and the Machine). I don’t even know if Adele knows this, but I passed her demo to someone who blogged it and it got a huge amount of attention. I always have my ear out for deep girls, up-and-coming girls.”
Mean beau
She dished about a fellow musician. “I dated him, trust me. He doesn’t mean to be mean. He’s just mean. Until he lets go of his resentment, he’s going to stay mean. He’s kind of in rock ‘n’ roll jail. You have to let go of your resentments. You guys saw me and Dave Grohl hug at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. That was a genuine, real moment of letting a lot of, pardon my French, a lot of legal gunk, a lot of crap, go. Just let it go.”
Confusing childhood
About her troubled growing-up years, she reminisced, “I ran away, and I came back to San Francisco in the 1980s. I liked it, but I did a lot of drugs there.” With a grin, she joked, “If you tell anybody I did drugs, it will ruin my reputation, because nobody in this town knows that. Not a soul. I am begging you, don’t tell anyone I did drugs. I will be knocked off as America’s Sweetheart.
“My mother was adopted by these very wealthy San Francisco Italians. When they died, they left her a really large amount of money. I had a maid named Madell when I was growing up. Then my mother married a guy named Frank, a garbageman. They called him “the garbage Adonis” because he was so beautiful, a very handsome man. I was very confused about our socioeconomic status.”
Her own book
She revealed another project: “I have a deal with HarperCollins for a book. I can’t tell everything but I can tell a lot. I have a compulsion to write. My grammar is terrible [but] it doesn’t matter to me. I write with a pen. It’s more emotional when you write with a pen, especially lyric poetry. I write couplets for a living—that’s what I do. I deal with my turmoil ‘cathartically’ through lyrics and through performances.”
We asked about her other dreams. “I want to see my daughter blossom, and I can’t wait to be a grandmother. That’s probably five or six years off. The reason I moved back in LA was to be closer to her, and also to get an agent to start acting again. I spent the last five years in New York. I was kind of like a socialite, sort of a rock star half the time, going out a lot. And I had to move back here and get serious.”

On this week’s Make Or Break: The Linda Perry Project, the musicians meet Linda‘s pal and sometimes collaborator, Courtney Love. The Hole frontwoman gives the artists some tough love about the business.

Courtney concedes that she was once rich enough to own the house they’re living in and now she isn’t. She embodies the ups-and-downs and fickleness of the music industry in a way that the Make Or Break cast have yet to see. With only five acts left living in the house, vying for a chance to work with Linda Perry on their album, the real talk shakes the musicians up.

Do you think Courtney Love will see something special in one of the acts? Do you think the musicians are ready for the tough and unpredictability of the music industry? Find out on an all new Make Or Break: The Linda Perry Project Wednesday at a new time 11 PM ET/PT.
