 I used Tony Robbins’ concerto of modeling from people who are good influences on me. I try to keep the negative people out of my life. I’m in a love thing. Loving myself, foremost — trying anyway — and chanting as always.

 I’m the Tolstoy of text. I never do, ‘C U later.’ And no one has the time, so people get my text and they read the first line. I’m a lyricist, and I do Homeric lyrics, like 60 or 80 pages sometimes. There’s one song that didn’t even make the record called ‘Sunset Marquis,’ about a hotel that I stayed in when I was banned from the Chateau Marmont. Banned. Banned. Banned. It’s time for me to go more public. I have to get it together and finish this damn story that The New Yorker, by the way, does not know is coming. They may reject me, I don’t know. But I’m aiming for that. And I want to be published. It’s time — I’m 46.

 Someone from the designer Karl Lagerfeld’s camp told me that some of the front-row ladies wearing all the kooky stuff don’t get laid. She said that if you want to get laid once in a while, then you better stop wearing the kook. I realized she was right. The whole time I had hair extensions, I was dry as a bone. S*x is like a good meal and fine wine. It has to be done.

 We were at a dinner party, and it was a discussion at the table about the best rehabs in America. We talked about the Promises clinic. If you want to know which rehab to go to, ask me. I’m the Conde Nast Traveller guide to rehabs.

 We had a really good time. I even had visions of marrying Gavin Rossdale one time. Everyone gave me so much s**t because Gavin sounded like a lot like Kurt. But man, he was such an Adonis in his day! He got good in bed… something happened. Maybe Gwen taught him, for all I know.

 Yes. She does know…. and a few other people. We didn’t have a lot of pressure on each other, but we did like each other quite a bit.

 I’m thinking about selling off all of Kurt’s publishing. All of the rights, everything. It’s not a financial decision; it’s an emotional one. He was the best friend I’ve ever had, but Kurt and I were only married for three years, and now I need to have my own life.
