Say what you will about Courtney Love but whether revealing plans for a Kurt Cobain musical, tweeting conspiracy theories about the missing Malaysia Airlines plane or delivering stormin' gigs in tiny Clapton cafes (all of which she's done recently), the Hole star is never boring. Here's 30 of her greatest, wisest and most unusual quotes from over the years.


"I might lie a lot but never in my lyrics."


“I'm driven. I am. I'm driven for some reason. But I don't know where I'm going.”


“I don't need plastic in my body to validate me as a woman.”


“Cocaine is like really evil coffee.”


“I used to do drugs, but don't tell anyone or it will ruin my image.”


“I found my inner bitch and ran with her."


“I wanted to be the best guitar player in the world, but I’m such a lazy bastard that it never happened.”


“I'm not a woman, I'm a force of nature.”


“I want every girl in the world to pick up a guitar and start screaming.”


“I’m not going to apologise for offending you. Actually, I think you should thank me.”
