Coutney Love Slams Lana Del Rey: “Heart Shaped Box Is About My Vagina”

Written by John Ritchie on July 31, 2012

Courtney Love has hit out at Lana Del Rey for covering Nirvana’s Heart Shaped Box while she has been on tour in Australia. The Hole frontwoman ranted on Twitter before deleting the comments (check out the capture below); however, NME have published the quote:

“You do know the song is about my Vagina right? ‘Throw down your umbilical noose so i can climb right back,’ umm… On top of which some of the lyrics about my vagina I contributed. So umm next time you sing it, think about my vagina will you?”

So far there hasn’t been a response from Del Rey, who refers to Nirvana’s Heart Shaped Box as a major musical influence when she was growing up. Last year in an interview with satelliteradioplayground, Del Rey said:

“When I was 11, I saw Kurt Cobain singing ‘Heart-Shaped Box’ on MTV and it really stopped me dead in my tracks. I thought he was the most beautiful person I had ever seen. Even at a young age, I really related to his sadness.”
