LOVE SEARCH

And there's no boys allowed...

COURTNEY LOVE

is hunting for a guitarist and bassist for her new band but there’s one condition – no boys!

The star is currently in the south of France working on her new solo album, which has been given the title ‘America’s Sweetheart’. Due later this year, many of the songs have been written with Hole

and Christina Aguilera collaborator Linda Perry.

Love, who is planning her own shows as well as an appearance at this year’s Reading and Leeds festivals, is looking to recruit new blood as soon as possible. The former [a][/a] frontwoman took out an advert in the US magazine Village Voice last week looking for a “Goddess”.

The advert reads: “Women Required for International Rock Revolution! Join Courtney Love’s Touring Band and get famous, see the world!

“Must play BASS or GUITAR (Really Play) and look like a Goddess. We like Emily the Strange, Lolita Goth, Patty Schemel’s drumming, Nuggets and “Performance” the Movie. We love Flea but don’t want you to play like him. We start NOW. NO BOYS.”
