Courtney Love has revealed Katy Perry "bores the s**t" out of her during an intimate performance at a hotel in New York City, where she also hit out at Robin Thicke and Jared Leto.

The comments come as Perry prepares to release her third album, Prism, and are bound to anger the 'Roar' singer's devoted fanbase.

The former wife of late Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain then went on to diss Blurred Lines singer Robin Thicke, referencing his father Alan Thicke, who was a popular 80s actor and chat show host: ''Can someone inform me who Alan Thicke's son is? Like what? Wasn't he on 'Charles in Charge?' That's like Jared Leto trying to convince me he's a rock star.''

Yawn... Even with an entire jungle in her 'Roar' video, Love is bored by Katy Perry

Love, the former singer of 90s grunge band Hole, made the comments whilst defending Miley Cyrus in the wake of her infamous onstage antics at the VMAs last month. She said ''I liked Miley, frankly. I'm gonna be honest, Katy Perry bores the s**t out of me. She's a nice girl, she just really bores me. You know, that hillbilly Miley Cyrus is sort of punk in a weird sex way.''

When the New York Post asked famously outspoken Love about her controversial opinions, the 49-year-old emphasised them further, saying ''[Katy] bores me. [Miley] was at least kind of punk rock, you know? It was openly sexual ... like dark and hillbilly and f***ed up.''

Below: The ramblings and rants of Courtney Love

  • In the latest of spectacular claims and strange rants from Courtney Love, she has accused the former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl of seducing her and Kurt Cobain's daughter Frances Bean - something both Grohl and Frances deny.

  • Love sensationally hit out at The Muppets for 'Raping' Kurt Cobain's memory by covering 'Smell's Like Teen Spirit' in their latest film. Love claims that she gave no permission for the use of the track despite selling half her rights to the track to Primary Wave, giving the company rights to distribute as they see fit. Love also claimed that Dave Grohl, who appeared in the film himself, knew Kurt would never want to be a muppet.

  • During a break from Twitter, Love took to Facebook to continue her unusual rants. This time claiming Britney Spears was molested by her dad. She wrote: "britneys dad molested her , imagine the father that molested you owning you for slavery while your forced to sing songs picked for thier sexual content every night, insane right? i have it on First had authority, and fight as hard as she is and does she still didnt pull that card, its a pride thing i can relate to, However they want to play dirty, lets go, Im SO not affraid of the little trolls who hit this when i was f***** up who are called lawyers. lets GO." The grammatically flawed Facebook post was soon deleted.

  • In 1992, a profile appeared in Vanity Fair claiming that Courtney Love used heroin while pregnant with Frances Bean. The article was written by Lynn Hirschberg, and three years later at a party, Love aimed to get her own back by grabbing Quentin Tarintino's best director Oscar and threatining to bash her with it.

  • In 2003, Love lost custody of her daughter after overdosing on oxycontin infront of Frances Bean. Love stated "That's the only time my daughter has ever, ever, ever pitched in on one of my little crises," she was then quoted saying "I made it fun."

  • In 2011, while perfroming at the SWU festival in Brazil, she spotted a fan in the crowd holding up a poster of Kurt Cobain. The singer was not amused and told the crowd “I don’t need to see a picture of Kurt, asshole, and I’m going to have you fucking removed if you keep throwing that up. I’m not Kurt – I have to live with his shit, his ghost, his kid every day. Throwing that up is stupid and rude and I’ll beat the fuck out of you if you do it again. You weren’t fucking married to him, I was. You didn’t get kicked out of a band by him, like Dave, he did. Go see the fucking Foo Fighters and do that shit.” before storming off. She later returned after the crowd started chanting "The Foo Fighters are gay"

  • In 2007, Love hit out again at Dave Grohl this time stating that Kurt Cobain never liked him "Kurt loathed HIM more than anyone else. In his will he made a codicil that Grohl was no longer a member of Nirvana. I just ignored the guy and will continue to." She also claimed on her MySpace "As for that drummer, well he%u2019s hit on me so many times. He%u2019s just a very very conflicted guy about me, which is why he continually writes songs about me to hear he 'hates' me more than %u2018anyone else%u2019.

  • In 2011, Love had to pay out $430,000 in Libel charges due to one of her Twitter rants. The singer took to Twitter to bash fashion designer Dawn Simorangkir. Love tweeted "She has received a vast amount of money from me over $40,000 dollars and I do not make people famous and get raped too!"

  • Author Neil Strauss claimed when he was interviewing Courtney Love she offered him the chance to snort Kurt Cobain's ashes. "She was serious when she made the suggestion. She actually said she would offer his ashes to me first to snort and then said she would like them."

  • In 2002, Love was being interviewed by Q magazine. During the interview she had a bikini wax, poured a bottle of champaigne over her head, stripped naked in a taxi before running down a street in London.
