Courtney Love fan here, can say something more. Read above in 1st part of the post, i wrote how she recorded violins for AS but they never got used. She only got the credit on back & she claimed her vocals are on "Never Gonna Be The Same". Entire record with Emilie's violins went to trash, Courtney Love was forced by the label to re-record everything and throw out decent amount of songs and in effect NONE of Emilie's violins was included on final record. The original version is locked somewhere in the Virgin Records vault. The only known person that has the old record is the producer/engineer from the sessions, Courtney's ex-boyfriend.
I believe EA was asked to pee to fake drug test, cause Courtney was a HUGE MESS back then, she was on coke all the time and had to pass those tests because her daughter Frances had been taken away from her again and she couldn't sleep in the same house with Courtney. The reason why Emilie played only 2 tv shows and 2 shows with Courtney Love and The Chelsea was because the tour had been postponed because of Courtney Love's court problems. She had to go to court in summer i think. Besides, one of the court cases was how Courtney Love got accused of hitting some guy with the mic stand at Bowery show. That was the show that Emilie played with her and EA said it was a press lie. Courtney continued touring later, but without Emilie. But the entire toured was cut down eventually because of more problems & Courntey had to go through enforced rehab and that's where it all ended.
Emilie absolutely stole Dirty Blonde aesthetic. Courtney Love showed her Gothic Lolita bibles AND she introduced her to Billy Corgan. EA became really salty about her, i think more because of Corgan than pee test, cause she hung out a few times with Courtney in 2004 and 2005. That first time she met Corgan, she was meeting Courtney. She was ok with Courtney after The Chelsea but really bitter after 2006. That would make sense because Corgan started dating Courtney again almost directly after Emilie, lol.
By the way Courtney Love is not conscious of the shit EA told about her, she posted her 2009 Opheliac photo on her pinterest once and was rather protective of her. >>789650
Corgan was the one who inspired Opheliac. Brendon Small was the boyfriend who drove her to mental hospital in her book. She lived with him when she recorded Laced/Unlaced.
- I'm confused with what you say about suicide attempt at Corgan's lake. She wanted to commit suicide, but came back inside to post some In The Lake lyrics. She didn't try to drown or anything, it wasn't that overdose trial. I don't know if she came to asylum in 2005, but that overdose in bathtub she described in the book was in 2006-2007, when she lived with Brendon Small. The dog who found her was Ernie, Small's dog. She constantly references S__. The only time i think she talked about Corgan in the book was that chapter RICH BOY or something about living with a famous Hollywood guy who was homophobic and racist, that fits just about right.
There's some things pointing to 2006-2007 timeline, it wasn't Willow that found her, it was Ernie. Plus, she wrote about "dirty pink tiles" in the bathroom she overdosed in - and guess what, Brendon Small's bathroom had pink tiles. She showed it in her lessons to be a wayward victorian girl, she had a "Deathklok" tank on. Plus, those christmas calendar videos were shot at Small's office/studio/house.
UNLESS there was some another overdose after Corgan/Jimmy thing, so I'll have to ask, how do you know about this? Someone told you or you're just guessing? I'm not saying it's not true but that's surprising.
Plus i knew that her mother made her Enchant clothes but a year ago Emilie told a sob nostalgia story about that white heart costume from 2004 and told how she made it herself from a thrift store wedding dress, cause she was oh so poor at the time, lolPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
