Courtney Love Must Stand in Line

Rock star Courtney Love isn't used to waiting in line. She's used to the fame that came with her marriage to mega-star Curt Cobaine of the rock band Nirvana. She's used to the front cover of Rolling Stone magazine, and the wealth that came with her multi-platinum selling albums.

She's used to the black stretch limousine that dropped her off in front of the Manhattan Criminal Court building, where she faced charges of disorderly conduct for hitting one of her fans with a microphone stand.

But she isn't used to what the security guard said to her when he didn't let her bypass the long line for the metal detector. She told a reporter on the scene:

"The guy wants me to stand in line with everybody else. I'm not everybody else." Then she added, "It's scary standing in line with everybody else."
