America’s Sweetheart (stop snickering) Courtney Love recently did a quiet (relatively speaking, of course,) gig at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, and along with a slew of hits from her former band, “Hole,” she treated the crowd to a cover of “99 Problems” by Jay-Z?!
Yes, you read that correctly, Courtney-freakin’-Love covered Jay-Z. And guess what? She didn’t censor the song.
Like…any of the song, if you know what I mean.
Still don’t get what the big deal is? Let me help you out: in “99 Problems,” Jay-Z likes to use the n-word. A LOT.
Love herself told the crowd that the cover “This either sucks or it’s genius, I don’t know.”
But you know what? I personally love Courtney
please don’t hate me for saying that, so with the exception of the n-word, I’m personally going to declare this cover a jam. My favorite hard-rock-hot-mess-girl-crush wails the way very few can, and I have to hand it to her for having the balls to cover this. Bravo, Courtney, bravo.
