Celebrity Skin

with one comment

I am a bit belated to noticing this, but: Courtney Love on the February cover of Spin magazine looks like an Olsen twin who took some sort of medicine with bad metabolic side effects and then crack-dieted the weight away, trying to channel Fiona Apple in the “Criminal” video. It’s a shame. Perhaps Love was never a great role model, but for a certain subset of teen girls in the 90s, she was at least … interesting. Unique. Seeing her airbrushed, injected and whatever into zombie-Heidi-Motag territory (the New Face has gone too far!), ranting about “skinny little bitches,” is just … disappointing.

  1. I’m not surprised. She wanted to be a celebrity and honesty, she was prolly always going to end up like this.
