Mercurial rock songstress Courtney Love apparently acquired her new rental townhouse in New York City's Greenwich Village in by fanatically tweeting a fellow celebrity, Milla Jovovich, its owner. Did Love unintentionally give us a glimpse of the future of real estate?
Courtney Love just proved the power of positivethinkingMilla Jovovich's Greenwich Avenue townhouse, which the recovering everything has beenkinda-sorta documentingon Twitter (though we were never sure it was her doing the typing), is a success! Or so we're led to believe by the NYT's greatstate-of-the-Courtney featurethat ran over the weekend. A state that can be defined as: wobbly.
The paper's Eric Wilson wrote that Love is finalizing a lease on a house in the West Village, and the topic is revisited later in the story: "Meanwhile, she made a promise to herself that, if she were to get the lease to the town house, then she would give up worrying about money, be polite to everyone and stop taking antidepressants. When she got home, she said, she found out that she got the house." Bravo, Courtney, and thanks for the lesson: If you tweet it, it will come. So how much is that security deposit?
