Love Blames Wild Antics On Being A Woman
COURTNEY LOVE insists she is only regarded as a hellraiser because she's a woman. The 43-year-old singer lost custody of her daughter Frances Bean, now 15, for two years because of her regular drug use. She finally kicked her addictions in 2006. The former Hole frontwoman maintains she doesn't deserve her hellraiser reputation, claiming her antics wouldn't be quite so extraordinary were she a man. She says, "There is a disconnect between who I am and how I am perceived. I used to play up to it a bit when I was on drugs because who cares: sex, drugs, rock'n'roll, waaaaah! I always seem to come number two to Keith Richards in lists of greatest hell-raisers of all time. But if I was a guy, I wouldn't even be on the list! I didn't know it was such a guy's job. It's like playing football in high heels and lipstick, no wonder it smears."
