10 Unforgettable Courtney Love Moments

Subscribe to Loudwire on

In this latest mashup of unforgettable moments, we focus on rock’s favorite hot mess — Courtney Love.

The Hole frontwoman, solo artist and widow of Nirvana‘s Kurt Cobain has decades of unforgettable moments to choose from, but we rounded up our favorite 10 for this Loud List.

Courtney Love’s erratic nature has been famously documented at some of entertainment’s biggest nights. Perhaps the most infamous moment came at the 1995 MTV VMA’s, where Love interrupted an interview with Madonna by throwing a shoe at the pop singer. Love completely hijacked the interview, as Madonna was very willingly whisked away. Another memorable night was the 2005 Comedy Central Roast of Pamela Anderson, as an obviously intoxicated Courtney Love claimed she had been “clean and sober” for over a year. She was quickly swatted down by Jimmy Kimmel.

We don’t just focus on the craziest Courtney Love moments, we also get into the musician’s softer side. At a vigil for Kurt Cobain shortly after his death, Courtney came outside to talk with fans about Kurt and his impact on music. She also publicly buried the hatchet between herself and the surviving members of Nirvana at the band’s 2014 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
