The Hole rocker has a turbulent relationship with Frances Bean Cobain - her 20-year-old daughter with the late Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain - but Courtney insists they have started to work out their differences and now communicate regularly.
She said: "I`m talking to her a lot which is great. It`s good to have her on my speeddial."
Courtney, 49, is currently writing her memoirs and although she has had a number of high profile flings - including those with Steve Coogan, Edward Norton and Billy Coogan - she says the book will be tame.
She said: "Lots of shenanigans with fun movie stars. Really, it`s a memoir without much sex in it. You`d think I was the Virgin Mary reading it."
While Kurt committed suicide in 1994, Courtney believes he would still be a successful recording artist if he was alive today.
She added to People magazine: "He was a melodic genius and he would still be in the game."
