Love potion

Forget O.J. and the stalking astronaut and the tasered college-student jerk, entertainment-news junkies. I have a Courtney Love bulletin:

Courtney Love wants to launch her own perfume but is worried nobody wants to smell like her.

The former Hole singer - who has battled drink and drug addiction - wants to lay to rest her rebellious image and reinvent herself before she brings out the signature scent.

Courtney said, "These days stars make money by marketing their own clothes and fragrances but I've been reading a lot of books and attending a lot of marketing conferences before I go down that route. No one wants to smell like Eau de Controversy!"

Put me down as one of those who do not want to smell like Courtney Love.

Funny, how sobriety and age have caused her to understand if she wants to keep all the "stuff" she has acquired over the years (homes,jets,good food,etc) she needs to appeal to others that have "grown up". She realizes it may not be so profitable anymore to "smell like teen spirit".

Gotta grow up sometime.

Which only goes to prove that making choices like naming your rock band "Hole" has inevitable repercussions in the pop culture, and pop culture is a finicky consumer market which all would-be-successful artists sooner or later figure out they need unless they are content to scrape by. (Stir, stir)
