Courtney Love Arrested

Singer admitted to hospital for apparent overdose

October 3, 2003 12:00 AM ET

Courtney Love was arrested in Los Angeles yesterday on suspicion of being under the influence of a controlled substance.

Love smashed several windows at a friend's Wilshire-area home prompting neighbors to call police, according to the Los Angeles Times. She was booked under the name Courtney Michelle Cobain and released on $2,500 bail at 5:30 a.m. yesterday.

Shortly after her release, Love made an emergency call and was taken by paramedics to Century City Hospital and treated for a possible overdose. She was released yesterday afternoon.

Love has been working on her debut solo album, America's Sweetheart. The record was initially scheduled for an October 28th release, but was recently pushed back to February 2004. Love also intended to tour this fall; no dates had been set and the status of the tour is uncertain.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
