Courtney Love and Lana Del Rey Touring Together? Right On.

First: If you're a Courtney Love-hating troll and you've just stopped by this post to take a verbal shit on her existence with your misogynist insistence that she's a fame whore who ruined Nirvana forever and killed Kurt, you can just stop reading right now. Seriously, go back to wanking off to listicles ranking the 147 best Foo Fighters' songs or whatever.

Now, let's look at the real topic of conversation: Lana Del Rey and Courtney Love are touring together. Though it may be brief -- just a handful of Rey's 2015 tour dates starting in May are slated to feature Love -- it is radical that this is happening at all.
