Courtney’s high-tech Love

Here’s a mobile-culture moment of empyrean weirdness. A while back, Courtney Love started seeing the rock-music-video-director Chris Milk. They kept it secret for a while. But then it got leaked to the press because Love is, apparently, a major Blackberry freak — and she accidentally left her device in a restaurant. Someone scooped it up, and according to the New York Daily News, found the evidence:

“Someone saw these really juicy, poetically pornographic things going back and forth between them,” says our snitch. “They were dirty, but beautiful. Just a sign of how much she loves him and how much he loves her.

“She said on these text messages, ‘You are the best in all ways, especially in the sack, between Ed Norton and Kurt Cobain,’ ” our source reveals.
