Courtney in Hospital Again

Singer re-admitted to New York hospital Tuesday

July 14, 2004 12:00 AM ET
Just days after being released from New York's Bellevue Hospital, Courtney Love was admitted to another private hospital in the city yesterday, according to Reuters.

No further information regarding Love's condition or her whereabouts was available.

The troubled rocker was hospitalized on Friday after suffering a "gynecological medical condition," according to her attorney. Emergency Medical Service workers answered a 911 call from her apartment. Love was handcuffed to a stretcher and taken to Bellevue. A statement from one of her attorneys said that the incident was "unrelated to any type of substance use or abuse."

Earlier that day, a Los Angeles judge issued a bench warrant for Love's arrest after she failed to show up for an arraignment on assault charges stemming from an April 25th incident in which Love allegedly attacked a woman with a bottle and flashlight.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
