A music journalist has revealed that Courtney Love wanted to snort Kurt Cobain's ashes.

According to writer Neil Strauss, the Hole singer suggested they inhale her dead husband's remains during a bizarre interview.

“She was serious when she made the suggestion. She actually said she would offer his ashes to me first to snort and then said she would like them,” the Daily Telegraph quoted Strauss as telling

“But the idea was nixed as I don’t do coke.”

Courtney's strange request is revealed in Strauss’ tell-all book Everyone Loves You When You Are Dead which also includes details of conversations he's had with stars including Lady Gaga, Madonna and Britney Spears.

In the book, Neil writes of how the blonde rocker - who was married to Nirvana frontman Kurt until his death in 1994 - ''introduced'' him to her husband before confessing she desired to snort his ashes.

He wrote: “She walks to a dresser, pulls open a drawer, and removes a square-shaped tin. She removes the lid, revealing a plastic bag full of white ashes. A faint smell of jasmine emanates from the tin.

love"LOVE: Too bad you don’t do coke. Otherwise I’d suggest taking a metal straw to it.

“STRAUSS: Yeah, I don’t think that would be the right thing to do.

“LOVE: I’d like to though."
