Courtney Love: Hey Lana, think about my vagina!

Courtney Love: Hey Lana, think about my vagina!

Courtney Love and Lana Del Rey

A few days ago, Lana Del Rey covered Nirvana‘s song “Heart-Shaped Box” in concert down in Sydney, Australia and … you can see where this is going, right? There’s only one person allowed to ride Kurt Cobain‘s long-deceased coattails, that’s his widow Courtney Love! Not the Muppets, not Lana, but Courtney! Who else is going to put Kurt’s face on lunch boxes? Exactly. So here comes Courtney to remind Lana whose vagina Kurt was really singing about back in 1993. Via HuffPo:

“You do know the song is about my Vagina right? ‘Throw down your umbilical noose so i can climb right back,’ umm… On top of which some of the lyrics about my vagina I contributed. So umm next time you sing it, think about my vagina will you?”

However, having been a Nirvana fan since the tender age of 11, Del Rey probably did know that little fact. The singer told a radio show last year that watching Cobain sing the song for the very first time “stopped me dead in my tracks.” She then added: “Even at a young age, I really related to his sadness.”

Oh lord, nothing kills a song faster than reminding people that it’s about Courtney’s vagina. Seriously, if you told everyone that Carly Rae Jepsen‘s hit song “Call Me Maybe” was about Courtney’s tunnel of love, the song would never be played on radio ever again. Actually, that’s not a bad idea …
