The rock and roller has spotted a similarity between her rock band's album cover and the young singer's recent promo shots.
Courtney Love wants Olivia Rodrigo to acknowledge the inspiration for one of her recent promotional shots - claiming that her alternative band Hole served the look first.
Olivia Rodrigo took the pop world by storm last year after the release of her debut single 'drivers license'. The 18-year-old, who appears in Disney+'s 'High School Musical' TV series, released her debut album 'SOUR' in May of this year to critical acclaim.
Last week, the star teased a promotional film called 'SOUR Prom Concert Film'. It will be a livestream of the singer playing some of her hits from the album. On her Instagram, she released the news, accompanied with a picture that stirred up emotions from Courtney Love.
According to 56-year-old Courtney Love, Olivia Rodrigo's promotional shot looks similar to her rock band's album cover of 'Live Through This'. In the 1994 album cover, it shows a young tiara-wearing girl holding a bouquet of flowers with mascara beginning to run down her face from crying. Rodrigo's concept meanwhile, sees her wearing a tiara, holding flowers, mascara running down her face, while looking off into the distance.
Courtney Love wrote on her Instagram account ""Spot the difference! #twinning!" while tagging the young star.
Responding to comments and questions posed by people on social media (which you can read here), Courtney wrote on Facebook: "Stealing an original idea and not asking permission is rude. There's no way to be elegant about it. I'm not angry. It happens all the time to me. I'm very gracious or say nothing. But this was bad form. That's not bullying or bomb throwing.
"It was rude and I gave every right to stick up for my work. Don't gatekeep me! I'm honourable as f*ck to my fellow artists, and I expect the same."
There doesn't seem to be much bad beef between the two performers, with Olivia Rodrigo responding to Courtney: "love u and live through this sooooo much."
Love replied, expecting a flower delivery to her house: "Olivia-you're welcome. My favourite florist is in Notting Hill, London! Dm me for deets! I look forward to reading your note!"
