Courtney Love has taken ‘batshit crazy’ to a level that only a few humans ever will. This year alone, she’s lost custody of her daughter (permanently), demolished her face via nose jobs, got some crappy tattoos, and posted naked pictures of her withered corpse on Twitter. How do you top that? Well if you’re Courtney, you take on a new identity, that’s how. And by identity, I mean name. Didn’t Prince pull this like ten years ago?

"Love" broke the news to NME earlier today: "Courtney Love is dead...we’ve all decided we don't like her anymore. We love her when she goes onstage, but I don't need her in the rest of my life." Adding in, "Courtney Love is a way to oppress me."

A new name will appear on the Hole front woman’s Vicodin prescriptions from now on: ‘Courtney Michelle,’ her birth name.

Let’s just hope that new Courtney realizes royalties from her upcoming album, Nobody’s Daughter, are still going into Courtney Love’s bank account. Her record label has yet to acknowledge the name change.
