Recently photographed looking shockingly gaunt, Courtney Love actually insists her weight is going up, not down.
In her usual stream-of-consciousness style – which includes relaxed rules for grammar and spelling – the 43-year-old rocker writes this week on her MySpace page (accessible only to her MySpace friends): “ive put on 10 pounds (thank you Sprinkles cupcakes wic h i must admit are overrated).”
Love’s blog also conveys her message that she thinks it’s unfair to single her out for criticism about her weight, USA Today reports.
“I must point out the hypocrisy of this crazy hysteria about my weight…Noones going to mistake me for Eva Longoria, andmy god I am truly hAppy to be who an what i am with my life an dmy expirience i can do so many things help so many people and make such a beautiful clothing line too! and maybe finish this dammed sript one day,” writes Love, who in April claimed to have shed 52 lbs. thanks to a diet of Isopure shakes, fish and vegetables.
Last month, Love’s concert in New York City prompted concerns about her incredibly shrinking frame – and even she made a wisecrack about her appearance. Between songs, she took a swig from a protein shake, then apologized to the crowd, saying that she “had to take care of my eating disorder.”
She then said she was joking and declared, “I don’t have an eating disorder.”
