Last Fall Courtney Love covered Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance at a few appearances, including a Givenchy party in Paris where Gerard Estadella of I Can Teach You How To Do It captured it on video.
Am I the only person in the world that thought this was awesome? Not because she sings it so beautifully. Not because she takes it so seriously. Not because she gets it spot on PERFECT. But because she rocks the grungy ass shit out of it, with her raspy voice and liberty taking with the lyrics.

A lot of the criticism on the Youtube vids seems to revolve around the opinion that Courtney needs to take singing lessons and learn the correct lyrics. My opinion is these people are 1) missing the point of rocking a cover; and 2) need to get over the idea that women need to have autotune perfect angelic voices and yodel through 4 octaves before they’re allowed to sing in public.
