QUOTES:

[commenting on her brief relationship with Trent Reznor] “Trent and I had this torrid whatever-you-want-to-call-it…he said in “Details” that my alleged pregnancy would have to be immaculate conception, so I said in “Spin” ‘Don’t call your band “Nine Inch Nails” if you have a three inch one!’ My band is called “Hole.” It’s not called “big hole,” it’s not called “little hole,” it’s not called “flapping nony”, it’s not called “teeny rosebud”, it’s not called “Barbie pussy.” It’s called “Hole.”

[on her music career with Hole] “I said this band is going to be ten times bigger than Sonic Youth but not as big as Jane’s Addiction. What was the but for?! It’s like a fucking curse! The gods were listening that day! I could have said ‘this band will be ten times bigger than Sonic Youth and The Beatles’ and that’s where we’d be right now.”

[on Kathleen Hanna] I still don’t like her. She bugs me. Kathleen Hanna runs that ship [her relationship with Beastie Boy Adam Horovitz] in a way that is far more Yoko than I would be. I envision her being in a decked-out loft with a little corner for a desk that look like it belongs in a poor person’s East Village apartment, with her battered-women’s stuff and her Ms. magazines and all her communication with leading feminists.
