Courtney Love has recanted her comment about not wanting to be known as Courtney Love. She was apparently joking about the name change, or at the very least, she's sobered up now.

CLo has been making the rounds doing a lot of press for the new Hole cd, Nobody's Daughter, which drops this Tuesday. Her latest comments about having a sexual escapade with Billy Corgan elicited this tweet from Corgan himself:

You know, if you are gonna recall sexual debauchery, at least try to get the year right.

Awesome.

According to this report, Courtney Love has told music zine NME, that she no longer wants to be known as Courtney Love, instead she prefers to be called Courtney Michelle now. She went on to say she's "sick"of answering questions about the late Kurt Cobain, because she's "not his spokesman." Courtney was also quoted as saying, "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, he died at 27."

They will still be our best efforts and enjoyable experiences for all. For the future, Aaron will be pursuing other musical and ministry endeavors. As for the rest of us we will continue to work hard on the new Underoath record. We appreciate the love and support from everyone in the past and hope that all of us will continue to receive your support on our future paths. We love you guys."
