Take a deep breath... now step inside the world of Courtney Love.

The Hole frontwoman and SPIN cover girl has just released a video for "Skinny Little Bitch," the catchy, gritty, and plain awesome lead single from her band's new album, Nobody's Daughter, and the lo-fi footage offers a glimpse inside the alt-rock queen's life -- and hotel room: she goes under the needle for a new tattoo, plays dress up, bounces on the bed, sings along, and chain-smokes cigs and then brushes her teeth. How hygienic -- so clean that Courtney!

The clip, "the least expensive Courtney Love video ever," according to a sign held up onscreen, also offers a few candid moments with the singer, free of her makeup and speaking freely. She even watches YouTube video of her former hubby, Kurt Cobain, giving a speech at an awards ceremony. "Courtney Love, lead singer of the sensational pop group Hole, is the best fuck in the world," the Nirvana frontman cracked. "I want a ring tone of that!" Love replied.

The video's release follows Hole's performance Tuesday night on Letterman. Courtney Love and her band -- also featuring 23-year-old guitar virtuoso Micko Larkin -- ripped through "Skinny Little Bitch" with the same ferocious power as they flaunted at SPIN's SXSW party, which was their first U.S. live show.

Watch both videos below, then tell us what you think in the comment section.
