For the part of the song [that goes] “People like you fuck people like me,” I wanted a screamer. So I called like three screamers. I called Gerard Way, who didn’t answer because he didn’t recognize the phone number. I called Brody. I called somebody else; nobody was around. I thought Billie Joe [Armstrong of Green Day] was around; he wasn’t around. So, I went over to my friend Bret’s house, and he’s a director … I [told him I] was too pitchy to scream this part. And this little voice goes, “I can sing it,” and I’m like “Who’s that?” And the little voice goes, “It’s Mariah.” And I’m like, “Okay, Mariah Carey, you cannot sing ‘People like you fuck people like me.’” She goes, “Yes I can. I did a rock record once; we just never released it.” So I went over there, and there’s no recording of it, but it was the two of us screaming—and she can rock sing. Mariah, she’s a badass. Like, she could rock sing. I couldn’t even believe it.
“Celebrity Skin” by Hole
You better watch out
On what you wish for
It better be worth it
So much to die for
Hole at Jabberjaw. August 7, 1991.
Courtney Love could be heard bragging about having the same drug dealer as Keifer Sutherland on the back patio of Jabberjaw. She chatted about 8 balls on stage and started quoting Zeppelin, asking, “does anybody remember laughter?”
