What happens after 2006 stays in 2006? Courtney Love may be in the middle of penning her memoir, but she’s not planning to dish on anything that happened after the year 2006. On Sunday, Rolling Stone posted excerpts from the Hole frontwoman’s interview with Paper magazine, in which she calls the book “a disaster” and “a nightmare.” Love told the magazine that she’s way behind schedule on the manuscript for the book, titled “The Girl With the Most Cake,” despite the fact that she’s even working with a co-writer. The singer also revealed that she never wanted to write the book, and made it clear that it won’t include her entire life story.
"What happens from 2006 on in the book is my personal business,” she said. “I’ve been discreet from that time on, and I want to keep it that way.”
Instead, when the book eventually comes out, it will focus on the singer’s early years as a stripper, her battle with drug addiction, and her high profile relationships with the late Kurt Cobain, Smashing Pumpkins singer Billy Corgan and Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor.
While she’s cutting her story off at 2006, it’s not like Love has flown under the radar for the past eight years. The outspoken rock star has made headlines over and over again, for everything from her strained relationship with her daughter to her bizarre prediction about the missing Malaysian airplane.
A 2012 Twitter rant had Love apologizing after she mistakenly accused rocker Dave Grohl of hitting on her daughter, Frances Bean Cobain. In a frosty retort, Frances referred to Love as “my biological mother” and suggested she stay off of social media. But Love’s reunion with Grohl earlier this year at Nirvana’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction had the two burying the hatchet, even after years of battling over Nirvana legal issues. That same year she made headlines for a lawsuit after her landlord claimed the rocker owed her more than $54,000 in back rent.
Love was also chatty in an interview earlier this year with music magazine NME. The widow of Kurt Cobain revealed that she’s planning a biopic, a documentary, and a play based on her late husband, and even dished that she’d consider a Kurt-themed musical if she could get an A-lister to help her produce it.
And in March, the controversial singer created buzz when she posted a theory on Facebook regarding missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370, complete with satellite imagery of the ocean and the plane's last known coordinates. The rocker painted arrows on the image pointing to what she identified as “oil” and “plane,” and wrote, "I'm no expert but up close this does look like a plane and an oil slick.” New York magazine revealed that the rocker was “obsessed” with finding the missing plane.
While these stories will be missing from Love’s upcoming book, at least it leaves her with plenty of material for a sequel.
