!! OMG, Courtney Love spoke to The Evening Standard, had some strong opinions about today’s female artists !!

OOOH, Courtney Love is Courtney-ing again, y’all! The Hole frontwoman and award-winning actress weighs-in on everyone from Taylor to Lana and Madge after the jump! JUICEEE.

On Taylor Swift: “Positively hates the idea” of Swift:

“Taylor is not important. She might be a safe space for girls, and she’s probably the Madonna of now, but she’s not interesting as an artist.”

On Beyoncé:

“I like the idea of Beyoncé doing a country record because it’s about Black women going into spaces where previously only white women have been allowed, not that I like it much. As a concept, I love it. I just don’t like her music.”

On Madonna (whom Courtney has a notoriously fraught relationship):

“I don’t like her and she doesn’t like me. I loved Desperately Seeking Susan, but for the city of New York as much as her.”

On Lana del Rey:

“I haven’t liked Lana since she covered a John Denver song, and I think she should really take seven years off. Up until ‘Take Me Home Country Roads’ I thought she was great. When I was recording my new album, I had to stop listening to her as she was influencing me too much.”

On PJ Harvey:

“The first four albums, then I’m done.”

On Jann Wenner, the founder of Rolling Stone:

“Five old white guys, right, who have apparently never heard of Kate Bush. I mean, really? Jann Wenner should be put out to pasture. The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is a joke. You know, some guy takes a girl out and tries to kiss her and she doesn’t feel like it, and he gets his whole career ruined. But Jann Wenner is allowed to say that Black people and women weren’t intellectual enough to be included in his book of rock ’n’ roll masters? Eat me, you f***!”

  1. No lies detected. You really think she was going to fawn all over Taylor Swift’s cereal commercial-sounding jingles???

  2. She’s a walking/talking PSA on the dangers of drugs…

    • If hating Taylor Swift, Beyonce and Jann Wenner is one of the dangers of taking drugs, we should be giving heroin to first graders.

  3. Coming from someone whose BEST claim to fame was she might have been responsible for a great musician’s death.

  4. Love her. She just speaks her truth unfiltered.

  5. I didn’t know Lana Del Ray covered Country Roads. Thanks Courtney! The rest of her interview sounds like trash.

  6. and meanwhile, all those ladies are all saying “who’s coutney love?”…..apart from kurt’s wife.

  7. 100% agree with her on Kate Bush!

    • Same, Courtney and Kate were huge influences for me growing up…

      “Live Through This” was my first album, in grade 5!
