You’ve really gotta love Courtney Love if you tune into MTV2 this weekend.
For 24 straight hours, the rock diva will be in control of the music network. She’ll play the videos she likes, invite her friends over for an on-camera jab fest and do whatever else she pleases, the network said Monday.
“MTV2 has always been home to a variety of artists,” said David Cohn, MTV2 general manager. “So much so, we wanted to let them move in, and we are thrilled to give Courtney the first set of keys.”
This is the first time the network has relinquished control to an artist for a day, representatives said.
Love won’t even need to stay awake the entire 24 hours; an MTV spokesman says when she sleeps, the network will probably show snippets of her dozing.
The former lead singer of Hole will take over the MTV studios in Times Square for “24 Hours of Love” at 8 p.m. (EDT) Saturday.
Love, the widow of Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain, has also appeared in the films “200 Cigarettes” and “The People vs. Larry Flynt.”
