Courtney Love was not down for Russell Brand—because he smelled weird. 

The wacky, outspoken rocker recently claimed on Channel 4's Alan Carr: Chatty Man that Katy Perry's ex came on to her—but she refused because he was "too musky."

"My favorite Russell Brand line was when we first were friends and he tried to hit on me and nothing ever happened," the 49-year-old recalled on the British talk show.

The former Hole frontwoman continued: "He goes, 'I've had a lot of grand conversations, darling, but none of them have ever ended in an orgasm. Can we go in your room?'"

Although crude, it wasn't the pick up line that turned Love away. "He's got some good lines," Love said, [But] I said to Russell, 'You're too musky for me, man.'" 

Kurt Cobain's widow added: "He is a little musky. We did yoga together and the musk was there.”

According to The New York Post, Love told the crowd between songs during a performance in NYC back in September 2013 that "Katy Perry bores the [bleep] out of me."

The rocker went on to say, "She's a nice girl, but she just really bores me."
