Courtney Love has compared the celebrity world to high school - with GWEN STEFANI as the popular cheerleader and herself as a delinquent student.

The former Hole frontwoman, who has landed in a string of legal wrangles in recent months, admits she just can't compete with the No Doubt beauty's popularity.

Love moans, "Being famous is just like being in high school. I'm not interested in being a cheerleader. I'm not interested in being Gwen Stefani.

"She's the cheerleader, and I'm out in the smoker shed."
