Courtney Love attended the opening night of Donizetti’s "L’Elisir D’Amore" at the Metropolitan Opera House in New York City, and the 48-year-old singer/actress has the tendency to look a bit rough, but she looked polished and picture perfect yesterday evening!
"L’Elisir D’Amore" (or "The Elixir of Love") is a story about a twitterpated peasant who tries to attract a wealthy woman by drinking a potion created by a phony doctor. The lady brushes him off, and despite the fact that she marries someone else, she later becomes interested in him when he ignores her. But of course!
Vanity Fair asked guests if they had ever done something that crazy for love, and naturally, the former Hole rocker had quite a bit to say. “Grand gestures? Darling, I’m the queen of them,” she said. She reveals that she once hopped on a private plane to see someone at a hotel, and then got right back on the plane. “Because I’m not that rich,” she explained. “You know, when you get a private plane, you have to pay for both ways, so you get 12 hours.”
Love said she also gave someone a tree, and she added, “You know, I think when I die, I’ll pass an elevator shaft with all my grand gestures piled up, plus all my loose change, rubies, diamonds, hundred-dollar bills I’ve lost. When we die, all our stuff that’s lost, you know, it’s all going to be there. Plus all your grand gestures.” Aww!
