The Hole singer, who was born Courtney Michelle Harrison, says her decision to kill off the 'Love' stage name is because "We've all decided we don't like her anymore. We love her when she goes onstage, but I don't need her in the rest of my life."
Speaking in an interview with NME magazine, the singer said that from now on she would like to be addressed as "Courtney Michelle. The name 'Courtney Love' is a way to oppress me."
The outspoken singer, who is set to bring Hole back to the UK for four gigs next month -- Glasgow O2 Academy on May 3, London Brixton O2 Academy on May 5, Manchester Academy on May 7 and Birmingham O2 Academy on May 9 -- and is currently touring the US, also said that she was was tired of talking about her late husband, Kurt Cobain.
She retorted, "I am not his spokesperson on Earth."
Love continued, "I don't know what he'd be like now, he could be into society girls, he could be into fat girls, he could be homosexual. We don't know, he died at 27."
Hole's new album, 'Nobody's Daughter,' is due for US release on April 27, and the UK on May 3. It's a reconstituted lineup, but is the first release under the Hole banner since 1998's 'Celebrity Skin.'
