The greatest thing about reading Courtney Love’s MySpace entries is actually attempting to comprehend her jagged writing. I suppose if you’re wired on something other than life, it makes things easier — but nevertheless, your brain will probably still hurt.

In one of her latest entries, Love gives us a sort of “Best of 2008″ shout-out; with one item in particular receiving her undying affection. In her own writing,

“my ancient ERMINE yep im a fur whore, if its 100 years old im fucking into it, sorry peta g tive been very very good for a very very long time, and this ermine is anicent and shettered tatterted and feels like it belonged to a queen, i know , i know maybe ill just stare at it, but f–k off if i wear it, i KNOW what im doing.”

Yea, PETA — lay off! If there’s one person who exudes confidence that “she knows what she’s doing”, it’s Courtney Love. At least she seems to be battling back guilt in terms of wearing the pelt. Perhaps the only positive here is that the fur coat is recycled vintage. (Mental note: It’s New Year’s Eve and I’m attempting to get inside the mind of Courtney Love.)

Eh – Bring on the champagne. And Courtney, donate that coat to PETA and get it off your mind!

    She’s a plastic-surgeried has-been and clearly a thorough loser.

  • VeggieTart

    She’s such a train wreck and clearly a model for Amy Winehouse.

    I heart Courtney. Even if she has drugged some of my best friends. They survived the experience. Can’t say that about you, dear reader.

    The pelt is over 100 years old.
    Are you driving a new car?
    Engage critical thinking.
    Throw off dogma.

    Why is it a problem if some random celebrity wears a USED vintage fur coat? Hell, we should be encouraging people who like fur to wear the fur that already exists.

    Alex, the answer to that question that’s often used is that any promotion of fur by a celebrity is detrimental. People mimic others (yes, even folks like Courtney Love), and they might be inspired to actually “buy” a new fur coat as a result.

    Well this makes sense. After all, Ms. Love is known for being a real class act! I think it’s funny that she mentioned PETA before they could give her a nasty letter. Somewhere in that brain she knows what’s goin’ on!

    archer – since you asked. no, i drive a 2004 hybrid (which, if you look it up you’ll see Prius started as completely leather animal free. Mine is one of those. No leather. no harm at all to animals when making it. I bought it used 2/3 yrs ago as not to buy a “new” vehicle.

    I don’t wear new fur. I don’t wear old fur. i have an issue wearing any kind of dead fur on my body.

    i cannot speak for everyone else on here but i think they’re far from hypocrites. many are vegetarians and don’t even wear leather for chris’ sakes!

    Dear Courtney–
    you are such a beautiful disaster.

    Love,

    Courtney Love is supposedly a genius. I have attempted to read some of her writing as well.. apparently I’m far from whatever plane of life she is inhabiting.

    Still… fur is mean. All I see are animals being skinned alive when I see a fur coat.

    And people to copy celebs because they can’t think for themselves.
