Courtney Love: It’s A Matter of Size

The Stiletto Blog lives up to its name by impaling Courtney Love and People at the same time.

Love claims to have gained 52 pounds eating brown mush prepared by a macrobiotic chef, and then lost it by sheer force of will:

All my [size] sixes and eights are on eBay. Most of the money is going to the Chrysalis Foundation for battered women in L.A. The other is Fair, which is fairness and accuracy in reporting which is a media watchdog group. They’re both fabulous.

The high-heeled blogger points out:

How credulous (that’s just a polite way of saying “stupid”) does one have to be to believe that a woman who is 182 pounds can fit into a size 6 or 8?

Sting allegedly told Love to lose the love-handles.

But Love’s not going to extremes:

If I got under 120lbs that would be a problem–I’d start looking like a crazy person.
