Courtney Love paid an emotional tribute to the late, great Anna Nicole Smith on Instagram last night.
Posting four fabulous archive pictures from an after-party following the 2004 World Music Awards, Love spoke about meeting the icon during the awards ceremony and how they spent a wild night in “some rich dudes high roller suite downing shots and etc”
Read the entire post below:
“Las Vegas . 2004. Anna Nicole , I was 2 days out of a crap money pit rehab in Orange County . . She started the evening by offering me cotton candy 🍭, she was pretty much the most beautiful woman I’d ever seen, and I have seen so many , we ended up in some rich dudes high roller suite downing shots and etc. I think there’s footage, Thats been disposed of by the E! Channel , in between there was a music “ awards “ show . It was corny , something to do with Monaco , it was televised, Robbie Williams. Heidi Klum? I don’t know. Man, she was incredibly beautiful like a mist, she trailed me all night . We had fun. I’m very grateful to have met her. Vegas is terrifying . And it’s rare and hard to be able to keep any length of sobriety at all, grateful for the little bit I have tonight .A Savage slip stream , tsunami of chaos hit her. A senseless waste . She wasn’t resilient enough to rise above in the moment the water washed over her head, the wave hit her wrong, it’s just a matter of luck, angles , seconds , she didn’t have the right skills or men (or women) strong 💪 enough to pull her up, how sad and fucked. What a beauty what a pity how many times it could have been me. Or you , So many .. rip sweet pretty Anna Nicole we love you tonight …”
Powerful, powerful stuff. Here’s hoping she publishes a follow-up to Dirty Blonde: The Diaries of Courtney Love.
