According to The Pulse of Radio, Courtney Love lashed back at SMASHING PUMPKINS frontman Billy Corgan on Twitter, one day after Corgan slammed the HOLE singer for being an irresponsible mother and talentless songwriter. The feud apparently stemmed from a dispute over the use of songs that the pair wrote together on the new HOLE album, "Nobody's Daughter". Love also alluded to a radio host this week that she tried to set up a meeting with an unnamed close friend at a Chicago airport between flights — presumably Windy City native Corgan — and was rebuffed.
In her tweets, Love took issue with Corgan's comments about Love being a poor mother to her daughter Frances. Responding to Corgan's remarks that Frances was "better," "cooler," and "smarter" that her mother, Love wrote, "What does 'BETTER' mean i agree heartily that (Frances) is indeed Smarter and Cooler than ANYONE will ever be you creep now go away GROSS." Love also wrote that Corgan "coughs up this spiritual shit like bile and lives none of it, I really think its truly creepy how jealous and obsessed (with Frances) he is GROSS."
Love also apparently deleted a tweet asking Corgan if he was a "pedophile," while also saying in other deleted tweets, "Your creepiness is disgusting shes never going to respond to you ever, leave her alone or ill seek a (temporary restraining order)."
Many of Love's fans tweeted messages of support to her.
HOLE's first album in 12 years, "Nobody's Daughter", arrived in stores on Tuesday (April 27), with the band scheduled to perform that night on CBS-TV's "Late Show With David Letterman".
Corgan told RollingStone.com last month that if Love used any of the songs they wrote together on the album, "It would be a real big problem."
