Love, whose life since the suicide of Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain in April 1994 has lurched from one wild meltdown to the next, has been attempting to cast herself as a reformed character recently in an attempt to mend her relationship with her estranged 18-year-old daughter Frances Bean.
According to Rolling Stone, Love was concerned that her latest meeting with the press lived "right up to my worst reputation."
The interview, which was published by the paper last Friday, Nov. 5, begins with Love admitting that she was "slightly drunk." After keeping reporter Eric Wilson waiting for an hour in her hotel suite, she appeared for the interview naked before putting on a pair of underwear she claimed cost $4,000 (£2,500) and a trench coat before walking through the hotel lobby with her breasts exposed.
The next day, Love apologized to Wilson via text message and said that a mixture of the anti-depressant drug Zoloft and a cocktail was responsible for her wild behavior.
"I'm so humiliated," she wrote. "That simply isn't me. It has been, but I haven't been such a mess for quite some time. I trust you understand that our hearts can take us all to dark and ill timed places."
The New York Times interview -- which leads with the quote "I'd like to be trusted again" -- is not Love's first naked incident. In 2004 during a TV interview with David Letterman, she hopped on his desk and flashed him, while a year earlier she wandered into a New York burger restaurant and posed half-naked with diners.
