Courtney Love wants a second chance

Nov 5 2013, 9:42am CST | by Bang Showbiz

Courtney Love wants a "second chance".

The Hole singer has struggled with drug addiction in the past but after seeing how stars including 'Sherlock Holmes' actor Robert Downey Jr. and 'Orange is the New Black' actress Natasha Lyonne have put their problems behind them to enjoy further career success, she doesn't see why she can't do the same and make a fresh start.

She told America's Fashion magazine: "Listen, if Natasha Lyonne can burn down a house and Robert can go to prison for two years, I deserve a second chance. I know there is hope for me."

The 'Doll Parts' rocker claimed her drug problems led to her being "ostracized" in the fashion world, but admitted perception of her changed just as quickly.

She recalled: "I got really ostracized by [fashion] after I went to rehab in 2006. After I got out, no one would dress me and I sucked it up. I went to Paris, got on a plane and I was only invited to two shows.

"It's really about who you surround yourself with in your career.The next time I went back to Paris was in 2008 and I got invited to a hundred shows and the minute [Givenchy creative director] Riccardo [Tisci] said 'She is my muse,' everyone threw clothes at me. That's just fashion - it's such a reactive community."

Courtney also claimed she gets "hit on" by high-profile guys is they are desperate to play her late husband, Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, in a biopic, though she refused to name anyone.

When asked if there will be a biopic made about her life, she said: "No, no, no. There will be no biopic on me.

"I will never sell my publishing. I won't let that happen. I still get hit on by guys because they want to be cast in that Kurt Cobain biopic that's been in production for years.

"I could give you some [actors'] names that would blow your mind, but I am so not sleeping with someone under 38."

Sam Lutfi would have you believe that he's the live, human equivalent of something like "Celebrity Home Makeover" minus the home, sub in "Mental Illness," but the fact is, he's been a hanger-on of women in the process of deteriorating and comes across more like a vulture than anything else. In a recent open letter to XO Jane, Lutfi claims that he's basically the savior of all broken celebrity women, and his recent alleged ploy to land Amanda Bynes i ...

Lindsay Lohan ‘wants a rich Brit sugar daddy & doesn’t care how old he is’

Sep 26 2014 7:19am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Here are some photos of Lindsay Lohan leaving the Playhouse Theatre last night after her second preview performance of Speed-the-Plow. I’m assuming she’s still wearing some of her stage makeup because YIKES. After the terrible reviews and outright laughter from the audience, you’d think that Lindsay would realize that she needs to buckle down and actually study her lines and do some extra work so her performance isn’t a total catastrophe. Not so much. Fame/Flynet notes that Lindsay went ...
