Courtney Love Desires Rose Honor


Rocker Courtney Love has launched an odd campaign to have a rose named after her.

The singer is obviously trying to join the likes of Barbara Streisand and Marilyn Monroe. She has urged flower growers to consider her name the next time they are looking for a new hybrid flower name.

In her video, the singer says, “I have it in my will (that) one hundredth of my estate goes towards the development of a silver glitter rose… just in case I get hit by a tractor in a corn field.”

She added, “To say I’m not crazy about roses is crazy, because I love roses.”

“I want a rose that’s glittering and silver, that’s named after me,” she said. “See, you can hybrid anything, and there’s a way to get … the petals to have glitter now.”

Courtney Love has already opened up about unexpected hug with Dave Grohl at Nirvana’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony in April. She said the hug was “genuine,” and Grohl is now explaining the sentiment in a new interview.

“I saw Courtney walking past [earlier in the night], and I just tapped her on the shoulder and we looked at each other in the eyes and that was it — we’re just family,” said Grohl to The Hollywood Reporter.

“We’ve had a rocky road. We’ve had a bumpy past, but at the end of the day we’re a big family and when we hugged each other it was a real hug.”
