Courtney Love brings her special brand of crazy to a new e-book about her life
"When you're used to heroin and cocaine, a few pills doesn't seem like the end of the world. As they say in AA, it's about progress, not perfection. I mean, abstinence is a nice idea, but I don't know if it's right for everyone. Especially for someone who was nursed on a steady diet of Valium and Ritalin from the time I was seven, thanks to my fine mother."...[But] I'm not a junkie anymore. I'm an establishment woman, g***mmit!
"So getting off drugs has made me feel really sexual and tender...like a 16-year-old virgin."
"Stupidly I was getting bundles of blow delivered to my house by a mulatto in a Nissan with a dragging muffler. I was living three blocks from the Beverly Hills Police Department."
"The strange thing is, while the crack screwed me up in a lot of ways, it improved me in certain others. I've never been good with numbers, but when I was on crack I could do math really, really well. I became a f***ing whiz at calculus."
"Shortly after Kurt's death, the lawyer who was representing me called and said, 'Courtney, you have over $7 million coming to you, but you need to give me your Social Security number.' [I couldn't] remember my Social Security Number, so I had to lie and make one up."
"Courtney Comes Clean" is available on the Nook, the iPad and other e-readers and retails for $2.99. You can order a copy here.
