Lana Del Rey managed to make it through her slow-tempo cover of Nirvana's "Heart-Shaped Box" without a hitch, but now Courtney Love has something to say about it.

Love has reacted to Del Rey’s string-heavy Nirvana cover by publicly informing the world that the song is, in fact, an ode to her vagina. The outspoken Hole frontwoman, who was married to troubled Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, took to Twitter to remind Del Rey of the song's origins after the "Video Games" singer covered the track in Sydney last week.

The tweets, which have now been deleted, were reported by NME. Love supposedly tweeted: “You do know the song is about my Vagina right? 'Throw down your umbilical noose so i can climb right back,' umm… On top of which some of the lyrics about my vagina I contributed. So umm next time you sing it, think about my vagina will you?"

However, having been a Nirvana fan since the tender age of 11, Del Rey probably did know that little fact. The singer told a radio show last year that watching Cobain sing the song for the very first time “stopped me dead in my tracks.” She then added: “Even at a young age, I really related to his sadness.” Summertime sadness, perhaps?

Love, who has a history of landing in hot water on Twitter, later appeared to repent her earlier statements, tweeting Del Rey, “You are gorgeous and very talented, it was all in good humor love, it is true however bwahaa xc.”
