Seriously, do these seeming photoshop daubs look like they are worth $ 5? No, I don’t think so. But Courtney Love thought otherwise.

 

“The contemporary art sale at Phillips in New York saw a demure, freshly detoxicated Courtney Love bidding on two works by American conceptual artist Barbara Kruger. First, Love opted for Kruger’s “Ohne Titel – Evil” (2001) which she bought for almost double the estimate, and then continued bidding for “Ohne Titel – Lust”  (2001) for an even higher amount. Yes, for Love, Lust is more precious then Evil. Courtney is currently romantically involved with Henry Allsopp, an aristocratic art dealer and Phillips contemporary specialist. Courtney said she has been “saved” by her new beau, who also has the power of attorney over her assets, as the Telergraph reported.”
