Courtney Love and Sharon Stone proved to be full cups of well-intentioned kookiness last night at amFAR's Inspiration Gala benefit at the Chateau Marmont hotel in Los Angeles.

We'll start with Ms. Love first…

The Hole rocker was the evening's surprise performer, screeching out singing covers of Madonna's "Like a Prayer" and Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance." Love may have forgotten some of the lyrics, but no matter. Her guitar player was there to remind her of the words. And truth be told, we kinda dig Love's take on the songs. We think it may be time for her to put together an album of covers.

But we digress.

Court ended her performance, which included a few F-bombs and at least one nip-slip, by announcing that she wanted no more drama in her life. "Please help!" she said. "All of you…Help me. I don't want to be controversial anymore."

Later on, Love was overheard complaining to various people that her bank accounts are frozen and she's gone days without any cash. However, she did say there's a guy in New York City she's having sex with who she does, in fact, like.

As for Stone, she delivered one of her signature impassioned teary-eyed speeches that covered a lot of ground. She said she keeps copies of The U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence on her desk. She predicted we would have a gay president in the next 50 years. She also recited her own customized rendition of The Gettysburg Address—or maybe it was the Constitution. It was hard to keep up.

Stone also helped out with the night's auction, warning the crowd, "If you don't bid, I'll come down there and kick your f--king ass."

The evening, sponsored by Piaget, DSquared and Audi and produced by Josh Wood, raised nearly $400,000 for amfAR. Stone, desginer Kenneth Cole and superagent Kevin Huvane served as cochairs.

Among the guests was Halle Berry's baby-daddy ex-boyfriend, Gabriel Aubry. No word if he got the chance to chat with the event's celeb host, Kylie Minogue, who used to date Berry's new flame, Olivier Martinez.
