(Newser) – Courtney Love admits she’s known for taking “gross pictures” where she looks like a “crazy person,” and she’s ready to change all that. The Hole frontwoman has become the unlikeliest of personal-style bloggers with, a web site that aims to prove she doesn’t dress like a hobo all the time. There’s just one problem: “This blog isn’t as interesting because it’s not the craze-fest she normally puts out there,” a celebrity gossip blog owner tells the New York Post.

Rather, it’s a daily—sometimes multiple times daily, even if she hasn’t changed outfits—blog featuring always-enthusiastic comments like, “The pics are rolling in and they are hot as the summer heat.” Love employs three bloggers, including her manager, to run the site, and it’s up to 20,000 viewers a day. Still, not everyone is a fan: “Courtney Love has just become sort of a joke,” says’s editor-in-chief. “Courtney’s more concerned about her outfits than getting her daughter back.”
