Once topless, the 47-year-old Hole frontwoman continued singing and strumming her Rickenbacker, the Daily Mail reports.
Love has a history of such behavior, and in addition to reportedly getting naked for a New York Times reporter last year, the renowned troublemaker flashed David Letterman in 2004, copying an on-air stunt pulled by Drew Barrymore in 1995.
Love's topless rocking wasn't the only noteworthy thing about Sunday's Brazilian gig. At another point in the show, a fan held up a picture of the singer's late husband, Kurt Cobain, prompting a rather angry response.
"I don't need to see a picture of Kurt, a-----e, and I'm going to have you f---ing removed if you keep holding that up," Love said, according to the NME. "I'm not Kurt, I have to live with his s--- and his ghost and his kid every day, and throwing that up is stupid and rude and I'm going to beat the f--- out of you if you do it again."
She then stormed off the stage, and after a member of her crew urged the crowd to chant "Foo Fighters are gay!" she returned for a bit of Dave Grohl bashing.
While the stripping and ranting likely cut into the Hole's actual performance time, it's rare for musicians to lose both their cool and their top in the same set. In that sense, Sao Paulo should consider itself lucky.
