Troubled rocker Courtney Love is showing off her many different images in the new issue of ELLE, including one rebellious pose in which she appears topless.

The controversial DOLL PARTS star is currently facing drug abuse problems after she was arrested for attempting to break into a Hollywood home earlier this month (OCT03), and now she's shocking even further with a provocative spread in the women's magazine.

Love is seen in ripped fishnet stockings, ballgowns and MARILYN MONROE-esque dresses in the Gilles Bensimon pictures, and in another she sits scowling and topless among black and white rags.

In the accompanying interview, which was carried out before her arrest, Love is asked if she's on drugs. She says, "Well, I'm not on drugs right now. You know what it is? It's like, if you have a record out then you're just a rock star, and if you don't have a record out, you're on drugs."

Love's first solo album, AMERICA'S SWEETHEART, is scheduled for release next year (04).
