London, Apr.19: Courtney Love has revealed that she became a rock star because of her gay friends, adding that now she is a gay icon.
She said that her homosexual pals helped her learn how to dress well and have a commanding presence when she entered a room.
Kurt Cobain's widow told Gay Times magazine that when she was a kid she was certainly what one would call a f** hag because that's how she learned to dress and be extrovert and walk into a room, the Mirror reported.
When the 49-year-old singer was asked what made her a gay icon, she said that it was surviving and also the ability to do drag, and to clean up nice. (ANI)
