Last week in Sydney, Australia, Lana Del Rey gave a delicate rendition of Nirvana's 1993 hit "Heart-Shaped Box," stripping the track of Kurt Cobain's grit in favor of a lighter version. Today, Courtney Love reached out to Del Rey on Twitter to give her an unsolicited rock history lesson. Though the tweets have since been deleted, Stereogum took a few screenshots before their removal.

"You do know the song is about my Vagina right? 'Throw down your umbilical noose so i can climb right back,' umm," wrote Love to Del Rey. "On top of which some of the lyrics about my vagina I contributed. So umm next time you sing it, think about my vagina will you?" [SIC]

Earlier this month, Love was hit with a lawsuit from a former assistant over "despicable conduct." It followed reports from last month revealing she had also been sued by her former lawyers over unpaid legal bills.
