Courtney Love never seems to stop getting herself caught up in drama. In the latest controversy surrounding the Hole frontwoman, Love pulled her band out of the the Soundwave Festival in Australia due to nu-metal rockers Limp Bizkit being higher on the bill.

Hole were supposed to join the likes of System Of A Down, Slipknot, Marilyn Manson, A Day To Remember, Alter Bridge and more next February and March before Courtney Love found out about the set times. Love made her discontent public on Twitter.

“What bloody flight of crazed fancy made you think we’d open for Limp, dude? No offence, that’s nuts,” the singer tweeted towards festival promoter AJ Maddah. Maddah would not take a jab like that lying down and also went to his Twitter page to respond.

“Like we were going to ask her [Courtney Love] permission every time we book a band. No point taking her back, only for her to cancel later, or turn up and act like a rotten twat to other artists and fans. I am really mad about this. I was given so many assurances that this would not happen when I took the booking.”

Courtney Love recently did a revealing interview with Vanity Fair, sharing her frustrations on the strained relationship between herself and daughter Frances Bean Cobain. She also said the late Kurt Cobain tried to kill himself multiple times before succeeding in 1994.
