Watch out – Courtney's in confessional mode

Never one to hold back, the singer has been opening up about her past again – this time about her supposed affair with Kate Moss

Courtney Love, in her latest outburst, claimed that she and the model Kate Moss were lovers in the late 1990s. Love has never been shy about saying what is on her mind. Here we revisit some of her choicest bons mots:

"I am not his spokesperson on Earth. I don't know what he'd be like now. He could be into society girls; he could be into fat girls; he could be homosexual. We don't know."

Courtney Love has finally had enough questions about her dead husband, Kurt Cobain, April 2010

"He looks like Edward Norton and Kurt had a baby."

Describing British actor James McAvoy on US chat show 'The View,' April 2010

"The name Courtney Love is a way to oppress me. We love her when she goes on stage, but I don't need her in the rest of my life."

Speaking to 'NME' about reverting to her "previous" name, Courtney Michelle, April 2010

"As a dear friend pointed out, nothing good ever comes from Twitter."

Love accepts that her tweets have been controversial in the past. 'The Scotsman', April 2010

"Cocaine is like really evil coffee."

Explaining how she described drugs to her daughter, in 'Vogue (Italia)', March 2010

"I'm lost in a fucking nightmare maze."

On her tempestuous relationship with her daughter, Frances Bean. 'Spin' magazine, March 2010

"@lilyroseallen you're really a brat, is there anyone who you haven't started a meaningless strop with? The night you did all the blow on earth."

A tweet from the "feud" between Love and Lily Allen that blew up after the NME Music Awards, February 2010

"I do have movie star manners; I just choose not to use them that much."

Speaking after accusations of vulgarity to 'Vanity Fair', September 2009

"Givenchy is like me, a legendary brand that has had its ups and downs."

Delusions of grandeur, Courtney? 'The Daily Telegraph', December 2007

"Glasgow is the only place in the world where they carried me to the back of the room, and back [to the stage], and nobody tried to put their fingers inside me."

Speaking about her stage-diving past to Graham Norton, October 2007

"I'm not pouting. I'm not playing anything up. I don't have parents that I acknowledge. I'm nobody's daughter. I'm nobody's wife. I'm nobody's bitch. I'm nobody's widow. I'm somebody's mother. Other than that, I don't identify with these other female roles I'm supposed to have."

Explaining her reasoning behind the forthcoming Hole album, 'Nobody's Daughter', on Spinnermusic.co.uk, April 2007

"You're no one in the rock industry unless you have feuded with me or slept with Winona Ryder."

On fame, 'Seventeen', August 2004
