Slim Courtney Love Says She's Lost 44 Lbs.
As bikini photos surface, the singer also writes that she got her "nosejobby nose" fixed
Courtney Love got the Internet buzzing Wednesday when she appeared dramatically slimmed down in a batch of beach photos – and now she says she’s lost 44 pounds.
In a posting on Love’s Web site, Moonwashedrose.com, she writes under the name “court” that she “lost 44 pounds with 6 more maybe 11 more to go.”
A rep for the onetime Hole singer confirms that Love indeed wrote the post and says Love is following a macrobiotic diet, eating lots of vegetables and fish, and doing yoga and exercise to meet her weight-loss goals.
Love also writes openly about having had a nose job, saying that she has her “old nose” back. “I hated that nosejobby nose, it was like a little beak,” she writes. Now, she says, she had had her nose “fixed.” “[It] looks like the one god gave me so im happy not to have crazy lips and a crazy teensy unnatural little nose.”
She adds, “All i care about is that my self esteem is [limitless] and intact, and that nothing and no situation effects my self esteem.”
It was only last October that Love was touting her sobriety of more than a year. At the time she said Mel Gibson helped her into rehab and that now her focus would be on raising her 14-year-old daughter, Frances Bean (with late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain), and staging a comeback.
“I always thought I’d be that girl that lives with no regrets,” Love told Billboard magazine. “I have regrets. I’ve written so many amends letters, I can’t even count them. It’s still not enough. Drugs make you an a hole.”
