The girl with the most cake: Newsarama steps up its new love affair with manga with an article about Courtney Love's new shojo experiment, Princess Ai:

"Certain elements of Princess Ai's personality, experiences, and fashion sense are based on Courtney and her life. When it comes to Ai's fashions, in fact, Courtney had a very significant influence on Ai in the character design stage. Courtney even supplied some rough sketches of different outfits, shoes and looks along with character and personality notes. When I saw the faxed pages, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the drawings. I know lots of musicians are artistic in many ways, but I didn't know she could sketch."
