Courtney Love was rejected as Mouseketeer

NEW YORK, Oct. 29 (UPI) -- U.S. rock musician Courtney Love was rejected as a Mouseketeer by television's "Mickey Mouse Club" in 1976, her newly published "Dirty Blonde" diary says.

The book also exposes her painful relationship with her mother, therapist Linda Carroll, Newsweek reports.

"When I get around (Carroll), I feel so awkward and timid and weak ... trying to prove to her that I can make friends and be popular," a 12-year-old Love writes.

Later letters come from inside an Oregon prison.

Love's diary book hits the shelves a week after her late husband, singer-songwriter-guitarist Kurt Cobain displaced Elvis at No. 1 on Forbes's list of the top-earning dead celebrities, Newsweek notes.

Part of that comes from Love, who sold her 25 percent share in the Seattle-based rock band Nirvana catalog, and earned Cobain's estate $50 million.
