Most Controversial Woman in Rock

I am a huge Courtney Love fan.
Have been ever since "Celebrity Skin" - I only got into "Live Through This" and earlier works after hearing the 3rd album.
I think that Ms. Love is a totally crazy woman. I love her voice, her screams, her lyrics, her arrangements. I also love that she has a big mouth and gets herself into lots of trouble with the public and the media.
With 27 days to go to Hole's new album "Nobody's Daughter" I have to admit I am thrilled. It has been 5 years in the making and the same amount of time since her solo effort "America's Sweetheart" (which I think I was one of few who actually enjoyed the album despite its flaws).
I have had a chance to hear two of the songs off the album and I think they are quite amazing! Both have great builds, strong lyrics and Courtney's voice is solid (but not as good as it used to be).
So my concern is that this album will be a masterpiece.
Why is this my concern?
Cause I think all of her jackassery in the media is going to overshadow the validity and content of the album. I think that her being so controversial will backfire on her. Which is a shame since based upon these two songs alone it sounds like this will be an incredible album.
