A blow by blow account of how to live with the junkie label.
Courtney Love has in recent years become the scratch pole of catty bitches (a human cross-breed with both male and females) hated and ridiculed not just for her heroin drug use (If only she'd taken cocaine she could have a cute Cocaine Courtney nickname like Kate Moss). No, she has been mocked more for how she acts while on them. Unflattering is the right word here.
Many of us remember the Transformations of Courtney - and there have been many. Stripper before we the public really knew her. Then as lead singer of Hole - she featured the talismans of scabbed knees, fright hair and a slung guitar. She became widely known, with her marriage to Kurt Cobain and the "Oh no Yoko" comparisons began. After his death she became even more famous and turned into a fashion(ista) widow. I 'member a knockout Vanity Fair spread where she was gorgeous. (Pre-collagen) She allowed her outward beauty to come out and damn near earned an Oscar for her role in 1996's The People vs. Larry Flynt. She's smart and funny. Or was. I'm not so sure, now. The drugs seem to have caused permanent damage.
At this moment she is doomed to a life of ridicule because of how she acts.
Kate Moss is undergoing a different treatment, so to speak.
She's a classy junkie. It's all about the glamour. If you don't maintain the glamour you don't deserve to be a junkie.
Like Courtney Love, Moss is the mother of one daughter. A known drug-user for years (she always denied until a few years ago) Moss is a supermodel; the face and body she sells to companies for millions so they can make hundreds of millions.
With non-contested photos of Moss smacked on the front page of the Sept. 15 Daily Mirror - sitting on tables with god-forsaken real lines of blow, there was something so obvious it could no longer be ignored.
Let's not pretend she was led astray by boyfriend Pete Doherty, who was, funnily enough, in Babyshambles, a band named or inspired by a low-octane "party girl's" drink - Babycham. Moss, 31, has fleshed out - really - from her first few days when she was one of the first waif models on the scene. Not just thin, but wafer-thin.
