Courtney Love is Writing a Tell-All Autobiography

What's to tell? I am Courtney Love. I did heroin for many years. Then I stopped doing it. Now, I'm relatively normal and borderline boring. The End.

Apparently she's going to address all the scandals and drama beginning in the late 80's when she was just a grungy little girl with dreams of superstardom and started up a band called "Hole."

Courtney says she wants to "set the record straight," and cover everything from her years as a musician, her short marriage to Kurt Cobain before his death, her drug problems and the Nirvana estate that she claims she was robbed of.

Some of the specific details that she will address in the book is her strained relationship with her daughter 19 year-old Frances Bean, her only child with Kurt. She lost custody of Frances when the girl was 13 after Courtney's overdose on oxycodone.

Since then her relationship with her daughter has been turbulent, though she recently dedicated the song, "Skinny Little Bitch" to her daughter, which is a half compliment. When a gay guy calls you a skinny bitch it's awesome, when your own mother says that to you, it's a whole different story.

She also wants to address the incident where she reportedly snorted her husband's ashes. Neil Strauss, Hollywood writer and legendary pick-up artist, included a shocking story about Love in his book, "Everyone Loves You When You're Dead."

Quoted from Neil's book he wrote, "She [Love] walks to a dresser, pulls open a drawer, and removes a square-shaped tin. She removes the lid, revealing a plastic bag full of white ashes. A faint smell of jasmine emanates from the tin."

"Courtney said, 'Too bad you don't do coke. Otherwise I'd suggest taking a metal straw to it.'

"I replied, 'Yeah, I don't think that would be the right thing to do.' "She said, 'I'd like to though."

I mean, after Tupac died, his friends claimed they rolled his ashes and smoked them, so I guess in the music community this is normal?

Courtney also claimed she did heroin when she was pregnant with Frances, though she didn't know she was pregnant at the time. However, she says she doesn't do drugs anymore.

"I promised I would never shoot heroin again, and I haven't, except for one incident in July 2005, where I shot myself up on purpose to kill myself."

Love will apparently write the tell-all with writer Anthony Bozza who has written with INXS, Tommy Lee and Slash.

I'm sure it will be a page-turner.
