Courtney Love Has Rebranded HerselfS

Tabloid favorite Courtney Love's band Hole has a new album, and the singer has a new name, since she no longer wants to be referred to by her "oppressive" stage name. What's the new moniker?

Courtney Michelle, which is closer to her birth name Courtney Michelle Harrison. "We love her when she goes onstage, but I don't need her in the rest of my life," the singer told NME magazine. Oh, Courtney, your problem has never been what happens on stage. That's where you're always at your best. It's what happens everywhere else that we're really scared of. So, note to self, Courtney Love is a good, old-fashioned riot girl who made one of the best albums of the '90s. Courtney Michelle is a drugged-out mess who lost custody of her daughter. Which one would you want to avoid?
