Courtney Love staying stupid

Courtney Love believes it is important to keep ''the stupid part of yourself alive'' and deliberately dumbed down lyrics on her new album

Courtney Love "shaves every day".

The Hole singer says she rewrote one of her new songs, 'Skinny Little B***h' because it wasn't stupid enough and she is always afraid of the consequences of appearing too clever.

She said: "I went to the site of the World Trade Centre at 3am and rewrote the song so it wouldn't be clever-clever. It's just completely visceral, kind of stupid. And it's really, really important to keep that stupid part of yourself alive, otherwise you start getting all smart and growing stupid facial hair. Including me. I shave every day."

The group are preparing for the release of long-awaited LP 'Nobody's Daughter', and Courtney admits she is still unhappy with the record but doesn't think it will ever get release if it is delayed until it reaches her required standard.

She told NME magazine: "I'm a crazy perfectionist. I'm never ever gonna put this out unless it comes out. So I'm putting it out."
