Courtney Love Goes Off On Beer Can-Throwing Fan

Note to self: Recycle beer cans at next Courtney Love concert. Whatever you do, do not — repeat, do not — toss said can onto the stage. Because Love, never one to take a perceived insult lying down, is going to humiliate you in front of a few thousand of your closest friends and neighbors.
Witness the above Daily Mail video from Love’s show in Adelaide, Australia, which finds her explaining the error of such a move to a thoughtless concertgoer via an expletive-filled rant. She even (gulp!) questions his manhood.
“In 20 years, no one’s thrown a beer can at me except for you, f–er,” Love shouts, before placing her forefinger and thumb roughly one inch apart and adding, “Your weenie must be this f–ing big.” Much of the next portion is unintelligible, as Love unleashes a string of bleeped-out curse words. Then, having seemingly finished with the offender, she adds: “DO NOT DO IT AGAIN.”
Yes, ma’am! Well, that’s what we would have said, anyway. Apparently, this particular beer can-throwing fan — who was apparently aiming in the direction of guitarist Micko Larkin — came back for more.
“You wanna go back? You wanna f–ing f– me up?,” Love says, tearing into him again. “Throw a beer can at my Micko, I will f–ing kill you. Throw it at me next time. We’ll have fun.”
Love’s tour of Australia continues Sunday (Aug. 24), with a final stop in Sydney. This is her first tour Down Under since 1999.
