Courtney Love used social media to call attention to the obvious similarities between the cover art of her band, Hole’s 1994 album, Live Through This, and Olivia Rodrigo’s debut album, Sour.
Both album covers feature a prom queen with running mascara, holding a large bouquet of flowers. Rodrigo appeared to pay homage to Love’s album in a very similar photo of herself in the art for her Sour Prom Concert Film.
Love posted Rodrigo’s album cover and wrote: “Spot the difference! Twinning!” Although she did follow it with a couple of “upbeat” emojis including a winky face, she didn’t stop there.
Referring to Ellen Von Unwerth, who photographed Love’s album cover, Love wrote on Facebook that it was rude” to recreate the image without her permission.
Rodrigo’s fans started hitting back on Twitter. And posting photos from the movie Carrie, which seemed to be where Courtney Love’s album got its inspiration.
