I’ve been a small courtroom with Courtney Love this week, watching while she gets sued. I wrote about it for the Awl:
Let’s talk about Courtney Love. In court, she is referred to as Ms. Cobain.
She sat behind me in the 35-seat courtroom this week and she smelled like mums, powder and smoke. She wore a limousine-blue bouclé Chanel skirt and blazer with tactfully fringed hems, a thin polished nickel belt clamped around her waist, diamond earrings, sheer black stockings and vintage nude kitten heels overlaid with black lace. Her expertly blonde hair was twisted back in an intentionally sloppy updo, two loose Swiss braids pulled back behind her ears. Love has jet-black lashes upon lashes that make her huge and already crystalline eyes look lighter and wetter.

Meet the stars of the upcoming conspiracy-minded docudrama Soaked in Bleach, whose Facebook page promises it will tell the "truth about the final days of Kurt Cobain’s life." Tyler Bryan (Shark Night 3D) plays Kurt, and Sarah Scott (The Artist) is Courtney.
Check out the rest of the cast at IMDb. (H/T Seattle Weekly)
Courtney Love performs the Velvet Underground’s “I’m Waiting for the Man” and Hole’s “Celebrity Skin” with Camp Freddy in Los Angeles last night.
It started, as so many things do these days, with a lost phone. A nice young lady named Courtney was traveling in a New York City cab. Upon leaving the cab, however, she left—as so many people do these days—her iPhone behind.
Usually, young Courtney’s story would have a sad ending: the phone found, its precious contents wiped clean, its skeletal hardware sold on the black market to the highest bidder.
But this story is not sad. This story is awesome. Because after Courtney left the cab, and her phone along with it, the vehicle was hailed by a guy named Frank. Frank found Courtney’s phone. He examined it, trying to determine who its owner might be. And after some investigation—phones, after all, containing much of our personal data—he came to a wondrous conclusion: The phone in question belonged to Courtney Love. Yes. That Courtney Love.
Oh, and the Frank in question? That would be Frank Bruni, op-ed columnist for The New York Times. Because New York.
So, say you’re Frank Bruni, Timesman and gentleman, in possession of Courtney Love’s iPhone. What do you do then? How do you, you high-profile Good Samaritan, make sure that Courtney Love’s lost iPhone is returned to her? You tweet, obviously.
