Teenage Whore
by Hole

Album: Pretty On The Inside (1991)

Songfacts®:

  • Courtney Love wrote this song about how she supported herself by working as a striper in Portland, Oregon. "When I was a teenage whore, my mother asked me baby what bores?" and "Baby why you are teenage whore?" are two simple verses that explain how the relation between Courtney Love and her mother, Linda Carroll, was not good. Love was sent to a youth correctional facility by her mother, and she stayed there until she was 16. >>
