London, England (CNS) – Courtney Love has defiantly admitted that she is a “a fur whore” and has asked People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) to “f— off” if they don’t like it when she wears her antique fur coat. In her recent MySpace post, Love writes, “My ancient Ermine – yep I’m a fur whore, if its 100 years old I’m f**king into it.”
However the singer somehow managed to send an apology to the animal rights group PETA by saying, “Sorry PETA. I’ve been very, very good for a very, very long time, and this Ermine is ancient and tattered and feels like it belonged to a Queen.”
The Ermine, which is also known as a short-tailed weasel, was once highly prized for its white fur.
“I know, I know,” Love confesses with a hint of guilt. “Maybe I’ll just stare at it, but f– off if I wear it, I KNOW what I’m doing,” the former Hole frontwoman says.
PETA is running a crusade against Hollywood A-listers who clad themselves in animal skin. Love, who had been married to Nirvana singer-guitarist Kurt Cobain for two years, confessed she was a fur fan and was least bothered about offending people, reports Contactmusic.
