The Credit Crisis and Courtney Love

Reuters reports that American Express is suing Courtney Love for $352,059.67 in unpaid balance, damages, attorney's fees, and late charges. So there's at least one deadbeat with enough assets for it to be worth American Express's while to sue. Among those assets might be any royalties from Love's best song, "Celebrity Skin", the video of which appears below. Listen for Love's surprisingly literate allusion to Dante Gabriel Rossetti's poem A Superscription.

That _is_ Love's best song. A brief highlight in a disappointing career (although I sort-of like "Awful as well, even though it sounds like a recycled Breeders song).

Courtney gave a very good performance in the little known, but excellent movie, 'Trapped' with Kevin Bacon and Charlize Theron.

I didn't see Trapped, but Love did give a very good performance in The People versus Larry Flynt.
