London: Rocker Courtney Love has revealed that she is tired of romancing men who are poorer than her, and dreams of marrying into aristocracy.
The widow of tragic Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain admits that she has always been fascinated by English culture and would love to wed a rich man.
“I’m sick of dating people who are poorer than me. It would be really nice if someone I dated had really great lawyers...” The Daily Star quoted her as telling Vanity Fair magazine.
According to reports, the ‘Live Through This’ singer is even reading up on proper royal protocol and likes to keep books by specialist publisher Debrett’s, famous for its guides to the aristocracy.
“I like etiquette. I wasn’t well brought up,” she added.
The 47-year-old singer, who last year enjoyed a brief fling with art dealer Henry Allsopp - godson to Prince Charles’ wife Camilla, accepts her drug-addled past will always present a stumbling block for any high-profile romance.
While referring to an infamous 2004 photo of her lying handcuffed to a hospital gurney, Love admitted, “That picture’s kind of a deal breaker.”
“I’m going to wind up like Gloria Swanson (as a faded star) in Sunset Boulevard (movie). The bad mother thing, the drug thing. I can’t escape this reputation,” she added.
