9 Times Courtney Love Was Actually A Mythological Creature

She's the girl with the most cake. AND SHE WILL LIVE FOREVER.

Posted on

This is Courtney Love.

Musician, actress, model, author, Love is best known for her work as the frontwoman of grunge band Hole (and her marriage to Nirvana's Kurt Cobain.) She's basically the biggest badass around. She's so cool, I'm pretty sure she's not human. No, I'm positive she's isn't — Courtney Love is a supernatural, immortal, perfect being.

1. And sometimes she is Charybdis.

As the legend goes in the Odyssey, Charybdis inhales water and later spits it out, creating fatal whirlpools. Love inhales tobacco and later spits out a biting retort to lame-os. Science.


7. Which makes her a little devious, like Mormo.

In Greek mythology, Mormo was a vampiric woman who bit misbehaving children. It's not something you want to do, but something you have to. The result is anguish, and look at that concerned Love. I feel for you, girl!


9. Which mostly makes her Yuki-onna.

According to Japanese folklore, Yuki-onna is a beautiful pale woman that appears when someone is approaching death in the snow. While sex is not death, there's something of an analogy here, I'm sure.
