Courtney Love is back – and she's letting loose in a new interview, riffing on everything from facelifts to failed love affairs and fashion.
The 49-year-old, who's currently writing her autobiography and recording a new album, is featured on the cover of FASHION magazine and admits that while the past few years have been turbulent, she's hoping Hollywood can forgive her.
"Listen, if [Orange is the New Black star] Natasha Lyonne can burn down a house and Robert [Downey Jr.] can go to prison for two years, I deserve a second chance. I know there is hope for me."

This month marks the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's final studio album, and fans aren't just able to buy a new "super deluxe" box set to celebrate the occasion. They can also buy the childhood home of late frontman Kurt Cobain, complete with his mattress.
Cobain's mother, Wendy O'Connor, is putting the tired, 1.5-story bungalow two hours southwest of Seattle on the market this week.
To help sell it, the family is offering a glimpse into the early life of its tortured and talented son through photos shot at the house, including one of a chocolate-frosted birthday cake for the then youngster and a shot of a teenage Cobain smiling, guitar in hand, in his messy room.

Frances adds: "Twitter should ban my mother."

Is one of rock 'n' roll's most famous daughters ready to tie the knot?
Frances Bean Cobain, 19, the daughter of Courtney Love and the late Kurt Cobain, has been dating Isaiah Silva of L.A. band the Rambles for more than a year – and they may have taken the next step, reports the OC Weekly.
They each quietly changed their Facebook relationship status to engaged a few weeks ago, the paper says, and a source confirms their happy news of Cobain's engagement to PEOPLE. However, they have since changed their statuses back.
According to the report, the couple use fake names on Facebook – she goes by Frances Rachel Leigh Cook, he uses Isaiah David Berkowitz-Cusack. Screen shots of their Facebook pages also show comments that hint at an engagement.

When Kurt Cobain killed himself on April 5, 1994, he left behind two shell-shocked musicians who suddenly lost a close friend – but not their desire to make music.
"I remember the day after Kurt died, waking up and thinking, 'Wow, I get to wake up again. Okay. Make good with what you've got,' " Dave Grohl said Saturday in a radio interview with Jon Stewart to mark the 20th anniversary of Nirvana's seminal album Nevermind.
Asked if he thought he wouldn't be able to enjoy music again, Krist Novoselic said he had felt the opposite. "It was so much reality," Novoselic said, and he recalled thinking to himself: "No, I'm going to live."
