Recently Cortney Love, former frontwoman for Hole, overdosed on Oxycontin at her Beverly Hills home. While she was doing this, her 11-year-old daughter was in the house with her. In a recent interview, Love said that she tried to make the overdose "fun" for her daughter so she wouldn't be scared. She added, "That's the only time my daughter has ever, ever, ever pitched in on one of my little crises. I made it fun. I said it was going to be gross and I was going to have to make myself throw up but it was going to be OK." After the overdose, Love's daughter was taken from her and put into her grandmother's care. The grandmother, mother of late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, has questioned Love's ability as a mother - but the singer insists the overdose was a minor glitch.

A minor glitch? What the hell. This woman has a history of drug problems. This little girl was born into a bad situation. As much as I love Nirvana and Kurt Cobain, he was not meant to be a father. And Love sure as hell should not have ever been a mother. This little girl should be taken from Love until she cleans herself up for good. Love doesn't desirve the child. I know some are saying, "Oxycontin. Rush Limbaugh. What's the difference." Or maybe something to that effect. Two things separate these incidents. Limbaugh doesn't have a little kid that depends on him and I didn't call for Love to serve jail time. Both need help, and I truly hope they get the help they need. Love more than Limbaugh.
