I bought Dirty Blonde, The Diaries of Courtney Love, on Saturday. It seems like it got an early release in Canada, it is supposed to come out in the US on the 31st.
At first, I was a bit disappointed because it is not very kiss-and-tell but then Courtney’s story drew me in: angry, eager, tragic, sad and on the other hand, for short periods, very sparkling. Like an emotional roller coaster ride.
Anyway, here is one of my favourite parts, an e-mail exchange between Courtney and Lindsay Lohan. I think I could get celebrity email addicted.

(VF = Vanity Fair. A 1992 article in Vanity Fair entitled “Strange Love”, in which it was alleged that Courtney had continued using heroin in the early stages of pregnancy. As a result, Child Welfare Services briefly investigated the Cobains’ fitness as parents, removing Frances Bean from their custody for a short period. Love claims to this day that she was misquoted, saying she had told author Lynn Hirschberg that she had stopped using it once she learned she was pregnant. (source))
