Courtney Love
meets 2,000 lesbians

Courtney Love made a live onstage comeback in Los Angeles Saturday night at the L.A. Gay and Lesbian Center's Women's Night fund-raiser. Appearing with singer-guitarist Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins and out songwriter-producer Linda Perry, Love shocked a theater full of lesbians and their supporters with her short set.

Among those attending were Lisa Marie Presley, VH1's Loni Love, The L Word's Leisha Hailey, Heather Matarazzo (Welcome to the Doll House, The Princess Diaries), and Meredith Baxter Birney.

"Billy and me have never been onstage before, and it was intense," Love told after the performance. "His guitar parts are haunting and beautiful. It [was] me, him, Linda, and 2,000 lesbians, and the songs are dramatically different from the demos."

Corgan played Blind Faith's "Can't Find My Way Home," and Perry sang her hits "Beautiful" (recorded by Christina Aguilera) and "What's Up?" (which Perry recorded with her band 4 Non Blondes).

"It was fucking historic," Love told the Web site. "It was such a cool living room vibe. The songs are smashing now. I wouldn't fuck around here, this is the best shit I've done since the Live Through This period."

Love, who was chain-smoking throughout her performance, performed the new songs "Sunset Marquis" and "Pacific Coast Highway."

The event raised more than $150,000 for the L.A. Gay and Lesbian Center.
