Courtney Love to Lana Del Rey — “‘Heart-Shaped Box’ is About My Vagina”

Courtney Love has said her fair share of messed up sh*t, but this one actually made me laugh very hard. Here’s the story in a nutshell: Music’s Up-and-coming it-girl, Lana Del Rey, covered Nirvana’s song, ‘Heart-Shaped Box.” According to NME, Lana Del Rey once said of the song, “When I was 11, I saw Kurt Cobain singing [it] on MTV, and it really stopped me dead in my tracks. I thought he was the most beautiful person I had ever seen. Even at a young age, I really related to his sadness.” So what did Courtney Love do to soil (no pun intended) this poor girl’s vision of the song? She divulged the “true” meaning on Twitter, saying, “You do know the song is about my Vagina right? ‘Throw down your umbilical noose so i can climb right back,’ umm… 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?”
