Courtney Love On Being Kurt’s ‘Nursemaid’
[lastfm]Kurt Cobain[/lastfm] made no secret of his drug use, but now [lastfm]Courtney Love[/lastfm] is revealing some gory details about his constant struggle with heroin. In a new edition of [lastfm]VH1’s Behind the Music[/lastfm], [lastfm]Love[/lastfm] explains that she frequently took extreme measures to revive her husband.
“He’d pass out and seek oblivion and I’d have to f**king slap him and put pins in his balls and put ice cubes everywhere and it started to piss me off . . . I started resenting that; I didn’t like being a nursemaid,” she says.
Love goes on to admit that part of her initial attraction to [lastfm]Cobain[/lastfm] was his physical appearance.
“The men with the two best noses in rock n’ roll were [lastfm]Axl Rose[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Kurt Cobain[/lastfm] and I certainly wasn’t going to mate with [lastfm]Axl Rose[/lastfm] . . . I was all about mating for a nose,” she adds.
[lastfm]Courtney Love[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Hole[/lastfm] released their latest album, [lastfm]Nobody’s Daughter[/lastfm], on April 27.
