    Rawr. Courtney Love showed off some diva antics when she pulled her band Hole out of its slot on the Soundwave Festival in Australia. Love was pissed that Limp Bizkit would play after Hole. As if.

    Hole would've performed alongside Slipknot, System of a Down and more, but when Love found out her band would play before rap-rockers Limp Biz, she went ballistic and bailed.

    Love wrote a message to promoter A.J. Maddah, saying, "What bloody flight of crazed fancy made you think we'd open for Limp Bizkit dude? No offense, that's nuts."

    Maddah aired his grievances with Love via Twitter, writing: "Like we were going to ask her (Courtney Love) permission every time we book a band. No point taking her back, only for her to cancel later, or turn up and act like a rotten twat to other artists and fans. Tbh I am really mad about this. I was given so many assurances that this would not happen when I took the booking."

    It's never a sure thing when it comes to the temperamental Courtney Love.

    Do you still follow Courtney Love's antics or are you over her?
