Courtney Love Talks Nonsense About Rehab, Money and Shoes…?

Sunday, February 7, 2010

COURTNEY Love claims she was too poor to buy shoes.

The Hole singer says her new song Never Go Hungry was written about her time of hardship when she and Frances Bean Cobain, her 17-year-old daughter with late husband Kurt Cobain, couldn’t even afford to clothe themselves and couldn’t get help from anyone.

“I wrote Never Go Hungry all by my lonesome, in rehab, sitting there f***ing in Orange County with a s**t guitar and no pick,” Love, who has repeatedly claimed to have been defrauded of her wealth by various people, told the new issue of Clash magazine. “It’s about my daughter. And it’s about how we were; they were just awful to us. We were just so broke.

“I vowed that we would never go hungry again, because we went hungry. I didn’t have any f***ing shoes! I had a pair of Converse that they gave me. That’s what I had. Frances didn’t have any shoes. We had one pair of shoes.”

The 45-year-old star claims she has lost her money because she has been “exploited” by so many people.

“Why did I have no money?” she said. “The simple answer to that is because I’m a widow and because I’m a woman.

“I get exploited. Not when I’m playing music. But financially, very much so.”
