Movie and rock star Courtney Love embraces the sexuality of '80s in the upcoming film "200 Cigarettes," but in real life, she likes to work on her spiritual side by chanting and saying prayers with her fellow bandmates before each Hole concert.
At one such spiritual gathering, Marilyn Manson and Korn's Jonathan Davis decided to join in, while all were out on tour in Australia for the Big Day Out festival in January.
"Every time before we go onstage, Sam's Catholic, Eric is a Buddhist, Melissa is... a fairy, and you know, I'm lots of stuff," Love recently explained to MTV News. "So, we do the Lord's prayer, we do the dharma, yoga prayer... That's what you just do, you tune in, it's cool. So, we had, we had Marilyn came in a couple of nights and do the Lord's prayer with us. But then, like, one night Jonathan was there, and you know, Jonathan, this will be really positive, you know, Jonathan
from Korn, positive for you. I really like picking on Korn. I sort of turn it into an art form, and it made me really happy to pick on them, but then I realize that Jonathan is just kind of this loser, weak, sweet little guy." [28.8 RealVideo]
Love says that while Davis didn't seem too familiar with the ceremony of it all, Manson had it down cold. He even led them all in the lord's prayer.
As for her film, which also stars Ben and Casey Affleck, Gaby Hoffmann, Kate Hudson, and Christina Ricci in an ensemble cast, "200 Cigarettes" is set to open nationwide on Friday, February 26 with an MTV premiere party special to air next Sunday at 5:30 p.m.
