Now that she’s half a century old, Hole frontwoman Courtney Love has made a list of “50 Obsessions I Couldn’t Live Without on My 50th Birthday.” The Number One position, she told XOJane, “would be sex. Obviously.” Quasi-related: Number 50 is her upcoming memoir, The Girl With the Most Cake, which she said “won’t be a kiss and tell.”
Number Two on the list is her daughter, Frances – “My proudest accomplishment always makes me prouder,” she wrote – and from there, she goes through fans, nostalgia, good girlfriends, the best fashion and more. Other notable obsessions include, “Being an icon” at Number 30, “Making history” at Number 38 (“Yes, I’m the first person to go to jury trial over libel on Twitter,” she wrote, “And we won.”), and “Making reporters do their jobs better” at Number 47. The latter referenced her theory on the whereabouts of the missing Malaysian plane. “I was only trying to help with the plane,” she wrote.
Her Number 16 obsession is “acting, acting, acting” and, though she has appeared in Sid and Nancy, Basquiat, and The People Vs. Larry Flynt, among other films, she’s currently most excited about her upcoming role on Sons of Anarchy. For the show’s seventh season, Love will play Ms. Harrison, which TV Line describes as a preschool teacher who takes an interest in character Jax’s eldest son Abel, leading to drama with Abel’s mother Wendy. Love will join fellow musician-actor Marilyn Manson, who will play imprisoned white supremacist Ron Tully.
