Courtney Love’s quote about her fling with Steve Coogan is pure Alan Partridge
An Instagram post by singer Courtney Love has reminded people of an extraordinary fact about her past.
This is the post.
And here’s what she wrote to go with the picture.
Steve Coogan seemed an odd inclusion, but it harked back to her brief fling with the comedian and actor. In an interview with Love Magazine, quoted by The Independent, she said:
“All it was was a couple of shags at the Sunset Marquis and I did not know he was Alan Partridge.
I had never seen Alan Partridge. But I was in a band with people who did know about Alan Partridge, so I had to make a record with them constantly saying to me: ‘Back of the net!’”
Funny tweeter, Jason – or @NickMotown – posted a screenshot, which quickly attracted the attention of thousands of people.

Never knew about that… and it is now, perhaps, one of the oddest sexual pairings I’ve ever thought of.

I'm imagining Rob Brydon reading this quote to him, in a restaurant, on one of their trips.

Nickurrz shared this unforgettable image.
My sister said that if he and Courtney had a baby and it was a girl, it would have looked like Pauline Calf. 😀

Can’t argue with that.
