Courtney Love Is Not Changing Her Name

This morning we pointed your attention to an interview with NME in which Courtney Love announced she would heretofore like to be known as Courtney Michelle. Turns out, disappointingly, that Love has not actually reached name-change-crazy-person status: A spokesperson for the Hole front woman now claims NME took the quote "100 percent out of context ... she's not changing her name, unless it's to 'Courtney Love Mellencamp' or 'Big Baby Jesus.'" That's funny! Also, our condolences to NME: We're sure it's pretty easy to lose your handle on the context in an interview when it's Courtney Love doing the rambling. [MTV]
