Courtney Is Cleared, Ready to Rock

Embattled rocker overcomes "gnarly drug habit" to return to the studio

阅读提示:“大烟桶子”柯特妮·拉芙缓刑(因故意攻击及非法拥有非法药品等罪名)结束了,她正式宣读了个人感谢辞并声称自己在监视期内除了弹吉他和照顾女儿外没做任何其他过分的事情,宣布她将返回录音栅,并与著名音乐制作人Linda Perry合作。

Courtney Is Cleared, Ready to Rock Embattled rocker overcomes "gnarly drug habit" to return to the studio Courtney Love has officially completed her period of drug rehab and house arrest for violating the terms of her probation, a Los Angeles judge ruled Friday.

The rocker appeared at L.A.'s downtown Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Center for a progress report, following the completion of a six-month rehab sentence for violating her probation on a number of charges stemming from 2003 and 2004 ——including assault, possession of an illegal prescription and being under the influence of a controlled substance. Superior Court Judge Rand S. Rubin announced, "Overall, I think you're doing really well. We're all pretty pleased with your progress. At this point, the house arrest is complete, so you're done."

Love herself delivered a statement: "I would just like to thank the court for allowing me these ninety days . . . [It] helped me deal with a very gnarly drug problem, which is behind me . . . I've just been playing guitar and taking care of my daughter. I want to [take this opportunity] to let the community know I'm doing great."

The judge set two dates for future review of Love's case: On May 5th, her lawyers must submit yet another progress report, and on May 12th, the singer must appear in court to address the report. Love continues to be on probation, and must remain alcohol- and drug-free.

During Love's sentence, which included almost four months in an in-house rehab program last year, the singer returned to writing, penning eight new tunes including "How Dirty Girls Get Clean," "Sad But True," "Sunset Marquis, "Loser Dust" and "Never Go Hungry Again." After being released to an outpatient program by Judge Rubin in November of last year, Love hit the studio with Billy Corgan, laying down those cuts, as well as "For Once in Your Life," for a series of tapes she's dubbed The Rehab Demos.

Speaking to Rolling Stone prior to her court appearance, Love claimed that, after so much personal turmoil, she continues to experience a very fertile period in her songwriting. "I've been really inspired lately and have remained inspired," said the rocker, citing the new tune "Good in Bed," which sports the lyric, "Tell me why the evil people are so very good in bed."

Love said another cut, "Stand Up Motherfucker," was inspired by a family member. "There was an incident where my novelist grandmother said in the New York Times [that] she didn't like the way I used language," she explains. "I reacted to that, and I wrote an elegiac sort of song using the word 'motherfucker' in it." The lyrics include, "With your total lack of discipline/Your desperate air need/You remind me of Caligula/I think you'd better leave/You come to me injectable and powdered to ingest/I never was respectable but at least I was well-dressed."

Love plans to demo some of her new material in the coming weeks before hitting the studio next month with songwriter/producer Linda Perry (Pink, Christina Aguilera), who gave Love a guitar while she was in rehab and encouraged her to become more "self-reliant." "But make no mistake," says Love, "I've written these songs by myself. It's great to have good musicians, but this is me and a guitar."
