Courtney Love recently revealed that Kurt Cobain was considering adopting a more David Bowie look in the future prior to his death, as he pondered a solo career. Billy Corgan just detailed ‘the next’ Kurt Cobain.
Love wrote, “Happy Christmas. 🎄 Coming from me and all my many personalities. Alot of indie priestess/ oppressors said I spent too much time on my aesthetic. That I was ‘anti feminist’ to care about my look, They gossiped about it nonstop , made fun of me for caring about texture, cut, and drape, And ‘standing out’. I never backed down, but they messed with me for years and often ? Copied me anyway … well you guys…😘💖💖 to them !
Not only is it fun (for me ) to think up new aesthetics , but, I knew all good rockstars start looks . Sometimes lots of them like Bowie . Sometimes stick to one vibe like @dollyparton @stevienicks , @grimes @billieellish @fkatwigs all have their own style . @lanadelrey has become confident enough now, to play with new vibes in her look. The Beatles and the stones had a look. Kurt had a look, a few more up his sleeve he’d ask me about as he got more into Bowie, oasis have a look. Hon rockstar @russellbrand has a look !
This stylist once told me a big designer didn’t want to dress me due to my ‘reputation.’ I loved this designer and it made me cry in front of @davidlachapelle who said, and. I’ll never forget this,
‘you didn’t need them before why do you need them now?’ (06)
He’s right. This is the perfect time for us all to invent ourselves. You don’t need fashion. Fashion needs you. Your dollar or pound etc. We set the terms post Covid. Don’t be a sheep. 🐑
Demand accountability! In my song ‘awful’ I sing : ‘they bought it all, let’s build a new one , make it beautiful.’ I stand by that. 💖💖💖💖💖💖 Btw ! I wear buy and love and am gifted and seek out many -designers of brilliance who are true artists, that I love.”
Love also praised Miley Cyrus cover “Dolls Parts” by Hole. “@mileycyrus Doing a sweet version of ‘doll parts; on @sternshow (hi Howard ❤️) 💕💕”
