Courtney Love Is ‘Touched’ by Miley Cyrus’ ‘Doll Parts’ Cover, Shares How Kurt Cobain Inspired the Song

“When this clip of Nirvana on ‘The Word’ in the UK played I heard about it in Germany, right as I was about to go onstage,” she continued. “Despite it seeming possibly vulgar to some, it isn’t, it was really sweet, and made me chuckle. Sort of embarrassed and sort of not.”

Love went on to share the inspiration behind “Doll Parts,” which she wrote “in 20 minutes in a girl named Joyce’s bathroom in Cambridge, Massachusetts.”

“I had to write most of the lyrics on my arm in sharpie as I ran out of paper,” she continued. “People were pounding on the door as I wrote it. It was played for the first time about an hour later, at the Virgin megastore in Boston. It was about a boy, whose band had just left town, who I’d been sleeping with, who I heard was sleeping with 2 other girls, it was my way of saying ‘You’re a f—ing idiot if you don’t choose ME, and here is all the desire and fury and love that I feel for you. Good songs don’t always come in 20 minutes but the force was strong and that one did.”

“Anyway I married that guy,” she cheekily concluded. See her post here.
