Courtney Love didn’t necessarily like when Lana Del Rey chose to cover Nirvana’s “Heart Shaped Box” last week. Kurt Cobain’s ex took to Twitter to reveal that the song is written about her vagina, and she’d like Lana to remember that.
The outspoken Hole frontwoman, who was married to troubled Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, took to Twitter to remind Del Rey of the song’s origins after the “Video Games” singer covered the track in Sydney last week.
The tweets, which have now been deleted, were reported by NME. Love supposedly tweeted: “You do know the song is about my Vagina right? ‘Throw down your umbilical noose so i can climb right back,’ umm… On top of which some of the lyrics about my vagina I contributed. So umm next time you sing it, think about my vagina will you?”
However, having been a Nirvana fan since the tender age of 11, Del Rey probably did know that little fact. The singer told a radio show last year that watching Cobain sing the song for the very first time “stopped me dead in my tracks.” She then added: “Even at a young age, I really related to his sadness.” Summertime sadness, perhaps?
Love, who has a history of landing in hot water on Twitter, later appeared to repent her earlier statements, tweeting Del Rey, “You are gorgeous and very talented, it was all in good humor love, it is true however bwahaa xc.”
Courtney is such a whack job. Here are some new pictures of her in New York City. What’s with the sores all over her legs?
