Dazed & Confused, clearly in tune with what the world not only wants but needs in the New Year, has selected Courtney Love for the January cover. She’s coming out with a new album early next year, and one lucky reporter got to spend a few days with Courtney at home in New York, which may or may not compare to the time she forced intrepid party reporter Mike Vilensky into the bathroom with her for a cigarette at the It Might Get Loud premiere in August. Yelena Yemchuk shot Love for the cover and an editorial inside the magazine. Have a look at those whimsical NSFW photos in the slideshow. If this woman can ever be called pixieish, this might be it. Step aside, Gaga. Here’s to 2010, the year of Courtney!
