this celebrity's skin

"Oh, make me over 
I'm all I wanna be 
A walking study
In demonology  
 Hey, so glad you could make it 
Yeah, now you really made it 

Hey, so glad you could make it now 

Oh look at my face 
My name is might have been
 


My name is never was
My name's forgotten 

 Hey, so glad you could make it 
Yeah, now you really made it 
Hey, there's only us left now


When I wake up

 In my makeup 
It's too early for that dress 

Wilted and faded somewhere in Hollywood


I'm glad I came here with your pound of flesh
No second billing, cause you're a star now 
 Oh, Cinderella they aren't sluts like you


Beautiful garbage, beautiful dresses 



Can you stand up 

Or will you just fall down?   


You better watch out 

On what you wish for 
It better be worth it 
So much to die for
  

 Hey, so glad you could make it 
Yeah, now you really made it 
Hey, there's only us left now 



When I wake up, in my makeup 



Have you ever felt so used up as this 



 It's all so sugarless 
Hooker waitress, model actress
 
Oh just go nameless
Honeysuckle 
She's full of poison 
She obliterated everything she kissed
Now she's fading, somewhere in Hollywood 

I'm glad I came here with your pound of flesh  
You want a part of me 

Well I'm not selling cheap 

No I'm not selling cheap"-Celebrity Skin by Hole   



They continually dog on Courtney Love.
I'm not saying she's perfect, but these are the fashion moments, that I think she got right.


I read her book years ago, I liked it.

The truth is we never know what it's like
 to live someone else's life.
 

This is the latest song I've been playing on my guitar.

  1. I love Courtney's attitude and style so much! She looks stunning in that floor length white dress. :)

    I didn't know she had a book. Did she write it in the 90's? I can't imagine what that decade must've been like for her, becoming famous, having a child and then losing Kurt. :/

I always thought that Courtney Love was beautiful no matter what stage of life she was in. I love that you play guitar. I am thinking about lessons...is it tough? Dawn Suitcase vignettes xo

  9. This is a good song. To tell you the truth I didn't really know Courtney Love (it's moments like these that make me feel uneducated in pop culture and all gen y ish.)

  15. love it!!!
    awesome post.. I don't know why I've always felt drawn to her.. actually, I've always felt drawn to the car-crash/wrecked/on drugs kind of girls like amy winehouse, kate moss, lindsay lohan, janis joplin, courtney.. is that bad?.. there's something that makes them seem so fragile in that estate that I like.. and sometimes even aim to have.. I'm messed up aren't I?
    anyway.. would LOVE to hear you play this song on your guitar, have you uploaded any videos?
