Courtney Love Slams Met Gala’s Karl Lagerfeld Tribute As ‘Disrespectful’

The Hole singer Courtney Love recently voiced her displeasure with the Met Gala, lamenting the event’s lack of respect for the late, great Karl Lagerfeld. As a devoted fan of the legendary designer, Love expressed her disappointment in the way his legacy was handled during the highly anticipated evening.

This year, the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Gala paid tribute to the iconic designer Karl Lagerfeld. The star-studded event was attended by numerous celebrities, each showcasing their own unique take on Lagerfeld’s designs. Some attendees even dressed up as Lagerfeld himself or even his beloved cat, Choupette. The Met Gala proved to be a controversial affair, with many critics expressing their dissatisfaction with the event’s execution.

Courtney Love was among those who felt the Met Gala failed to properly honor Karl Lagerfeld’s legacy. She used humor to express her disapproval of the evening’s festivities on Twitter. Love tweeted a photo of herself whispering to Lagerfeld, captioning it with a comment that called the event’s costumes ‘boring.’

In a follow-up tweet, Love shared another picture of her and Lagerfeld wearing nearly identical sunglasses, suggesting that if she had been invited to the Met Gala, she could have paid a more fitting tribute to the designer.

One of her tweets was:

“KARL: ‘Courtney, WTF was that Met ball?’
Me: ‘Total disrespect for your legacy. Oh, and boring.
KARL: ‘Ffft. I’ll be waiting on the other side with my cat & the axe! Anna. The axe!'”

In the other one, she stated:

“These dudes do not abide.”

Courtney Love’s scathing critique of the Met Gala has undoubtedly resonated with those who share her admiration for Karl Lagerfeld and his indelible impact on the fashion world. Whether or not the Met Gala organizers take her criticism to heart remains to be seen, but one thing is clear: Courtney Love will always speak her mind when it comes to honoring the icons who have shaped her world.
