Courtney Love Bored With Being A Badass

Courtney Love is bored of being “badass”.

The rock singer is turning 50 this year, but continues to perform and make music. She might still be big in the industry, but the blonde star is happy to tone it down these days.

“People expect this badass behaviour from you, but I’m just bored of it,” she sighed to NME magazine. “So I’ll be that girl onstage, but I’m just over it. Taking my bra off and showing my boobs was fun for a while, but I’m 50 and I’m not gonna show my boobs. You’ll still get the unexpected, but I don’t really have the desire to be a cliche.

“It doesn’t mean I’m a boring old fart, but it just means I like to play rock’n’roll and play it really fast and really hard and I get off on that. That’s where I put my energy. And I could use all that power and that energy for, at this age, good. And then I guess you are a boring old fart, but – guess what – it doesn’t mean that you can’t play rock.”

Courtney was married to late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain from 1992 until his death in 1994. They had daughter Frances Bean six months after they wed and Courtney has had a notoriously rocky relationship with her. They’ve now patched things up.

“We went through all of that crazy sh*t,” Courtney said. “I don’t wanna speak for her, but she’s done a lot of maturing and growing. It took me five years to set up [Frances’] trust fund, and I think she finally realised that it took me five years and $5 million. There was some money from her dad’s estate saved, and quite a lot of it. So she’s gonna be OK for the rest of her life if she’s careful.”
