See you guys? We told you Robert Pattinson (photos) was a genius!!! Well maybe we never said those words exactly, but it’s not too late to heap praise at his delicate, pale, pigeon-toed feet. The awkward heartthrob has called out America’s #1 crazy, Courtney Love (see her craziest looks), for being totally batsh*t bonkers when she freaked out over the rumor that Rob might play Kurt Cobain in a biopic about the singer’s short life…a rumor that Rob recently dispelled in an interview with The Mirror. Oh and while he was calling bullsh*it, he also called Courtney a “dick.” Do you guys get why we love him yet?
Says his dazzlingness:
“Sometimes these things just appear. I love Nirvana, but I love them a bit too much – I’d be embarrassed. And you see all these comments, like from Courtney Love, saying ‘What the f*ck! He’s totally wrong for it’, and I’m like, ’I f*cking said no, you dick!’ I didn’t get offered it. For one thing, I’m too tall, and I can’t sing like him, I’m nothing like him!’ It’s ridiculous.”
And here we were thinking there was nothing sexier than Rob running around in karate pants. We were wrong – dead wrong – it’s his mouth and not his looks that have made us melt. If he calls Courtney a “dick” in an interview, we can only imagine what he calls Kristen Stewart (photos) in the bedroom. Not that we’re imagining that right now or anything.
In news that’s surely going to annoy Miley Cyrus, Robert Pattinson is supposedly in talks to portray Kurt Cobain in a biopic about the Nirvana musician. (As you know by now, Miley is too deep for frivolous crap like Twilight, but she lusts for Kurt Cobain.)
Radar Online reports that Pattinson is chatting with Courtney Love about possibly playing the role for a film tentatively titled All Apologies. A source says, “Robert has been calling and emailing her non-stop… she has been a bit wound up by his manners, but he is her number one choice to play Kurt.”
While we don’t exactly see a resemblance, we can imagine that Pattinson knows a thing or two about the pitfalls of uncontrollable fame and might actually be a good choice for the part. The question remains though, who will play Love? Will she demand to play herself just so she’ll get to make out with RPattz? Can’t really blame her if she does.
Update: Courtney Love’s manager Jonathan Daniel is calling B.S. on Radar’s claim: “That’s an amazing story, and the first I’ve heard of any of this,” he tells Spin. As for Courtney’s RPattz infatuation? “I’m not sure she knows who R Patz is,” quips Daniel. “But he sure is cute.”

Courtney Love and the remaining members of Nirvana hate each other. Ever since Kurt Cobain‘s death in 1994, Love, Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic have had a contentious relationship full of disagreements regarding the musician’s estate and legacy, but for the first time in fifteen years they agree on something: they disapprove of Cobain’s likeness being used in Guitar Hero 5. None of them have a problem with Cobain’s likeness being used while he sings Nirvana songs, what they don’t like is the fact that he also sings songs by bands like Bon Jovi and Bush. You know, crappy stuff.
In a statement, Grohl and Novoselic say they are “dismayed and very disappointed” in the game and that “it’s hard to watch an image of Kurt pantomiming other artists’ music alongside cartoon characters. Kurt Cobain wrote songs that hold a lot of meaning to people all over the world. We feel he deserves better.”
Love agrees, but Activision, the company that created Guitar Hero, claims they actually got her stamp of approval for the game. They released their own statement, saying, “Guitar Hero secured the necessary licensing rights from the Cobain estate in a written agreement signed by Courtney Love to use Kurt Cobain’s likeness as a fully playable character in Guitar Hero 5.” Looks like someone didn’t read the fine print. Love, of course, has taken to Twitter rather than releasing a real statement to blast the game makers. [Photos: GettyImages]
