We kept you up to date about Courtney Love‘s latest Twitter rant, which went down last week. The tirade was due to the fact that she believed that Dave Grohl was trying to get it on with her daughter, Frances Bean Cobain. The magnitude of ick here is unbelievable. We all know Grohl was in Nirvana with Love’s late husband, Kurt Cobain. So he’s been around Frances since she was a tyke. But Ms. Courtney never is one for reason and she isn’t one for tact, so one of her many tweets went something like, “Well if bean did have sex with @davegrohl which I’ve now heard reliable sources and a driver 3rd time, its fine on her part, he’s insane.”
Grohl and Frances both denied her allegations, with Grohl saying, “Unfortunately Courtney is on another hateful twitter rant. These new accusations are upsetting, offensive and absolutely untrue.” Frances gave a longer, very strongly worded statement, that ended with, “Twitter should ban my mother.” That doesn’t seem to be happening, but what is unfolding, is Love’s typical Twitter shame-attack which always seems to happen to her a couple of days after she launches into a diatribe. This time her apology comes in the form of a tweet (what else) which reads, “Bean, sorry I believed the gossip. Mommy loves you” which made us want to grab Courtney and shake her by the shoulders. Next time, cut out the baby talk, Courtney. Actually, while we’re wishing for things, how about this — Courtney, stop picking the gossip and talk to your daughter.
Considering how the anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s death affected people even seventeen years after the sing’s death, it’s not surprising that fans want to pay homage to his musical legacy. That being said, Jared Leto’s Kurt Cobain tribute leaves us feeling more than a little weirded out. “This made me recall a short piece of film I shot when I heard they were making a film celebrating his life,” Jared wrote about realizing yesterday marked the date of the Nirvana frontman’s passing. “I made it to explore the character and explore creative possibilities. I never sent it to the studio or to anyone but thought I’d share it now…” Maybe if Jared had released his take on “Pennyroyal Tea” on Cobain’s birthday or the release date of Bleach, it wouldn’t seem so ghoulish. As it is, Leto comes off like an Elvis impersonator with smaller sideburns.
“He gave us all permission to create no matter what our skill set and reminded me that dreams are possible. Thanks for that,” Jared explained. Maybe it’s because Leto and Cobain look (and sound) so much alike, but mostly the video seems in poor taste. How can we put this? We loved Selena; that doesn’t mean we’re going to dress up in a sequins bustier and do the washing mashing on the anniversary of her death. That would be hella gauche.
The weird activity was apparently suggested when he was interviewing her, while she was fronting Hole. He says, “She was serious when she made the suggestion. She actually said she would offer his ashes to me first to snort and the said she would like them. But the idea was nixed as I don’t do coke”. The exchange is fleshed out in the book and states that it all went down in Love’s home in L.A where she showed him a a tin which contained a plastic bag full of ashes and said, “Say hi to Kurt”. She also supposedly added, “Too bad you don’t do coke. Otherwise I’d suggest taking a metal straw to it”, to which he responded, “Yeah, I don’t think that would be the right thing to do”. Strauss then writes that her reply was, “I’d like to though”. Okay, we don’t know what to say to that. It’s just too creepy for us. So we’re just going to stick with R.I.P Kurt!
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.
Miley Cyrus is an enigma to us at this point. She (and her deep, dark soul) are just so dissatisfied with pop culture, including country music and Twilight, and now she doesn’t even like poor, defenseless little Justin Bieber. Miley told MTV News that even though she and Bieber tend to appeal to the same crowd, she’s not really into him. Sayeth Miley “Bieber fever … I’m not necessarily a fan. I don’t listen to that kind of music.” It’s funny because, um, she makes that kind of music. So what is she into? Oddly enough, the same thing we were into at 17 – Nirvana. “I like Kurt Cobain,” she explained. “[He] is like my dream boyfriend.” Sorry, Liam Hemsworth, you don’t smell nearly enough like teen spirit for this grunge chick.
Couple things: a) We wonder if Courtney Love has anything to say about this (of course if she does Tweet about it, Miley will surely be too busy playing sports outside to notice) and b) Why doesn’t Miley try to befriend Frances Bean Cobain? They’re the same age and they both have famous musicians for parents. And who knows, maybe Frances’ dream guy is Billy Ray Cyrus. [Photos: Getty Images]
Courtney’s attorney insists that it is not because of a drug relapse on Courtney’s part. “Courtney’s been clean for years and is perfectly fine,” Keith says. “This is simply about Frances preferring to live with her grandmother at this time.” [Source: People.com; Photo: Getty Images]
Courtney Loveand 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]
This just-turned seventeen-year-old was spotted out shopping in the East Village yesterday, wearing a grunge-style outfit (like her late dad) and a slash of bright red lipstick (like her mom). Who is she? Find out after the jump.
The photos of her emaciated frame shocked the world last week, and now Courtney Love has admitted she’s been “diagnosed with malnutrition.” In an interview with Britain’s Grazia magazine, Courtney frankly confessed she has dropped to only 118 pounds and blamed her dramatic weight loss on the fraud case that claims hundreds of millions of dollars have gone missing from her late husband Kurt Cobain‘sestate.
“I know I’ve got too skinny. I know those pictures of me are going out everywhere. I know I need to sort it out. It’s stress — you have no idea what it has been these last few months,” she said.
Courtney ends the interview by saying, “I’m serious about putting on weight. I want to look curvy — come back to me in a month and you’ll see.” Sounds good. [Photo: Splash News Online]
Courtney Love sat down with Vanity Fair writer Lynn Hirschberg to debut herself as Nirvana front-man Kurt Cobain‘s wife with a rock star career of her own, but she ended up temporarily losing her newborn infant. “We went on a binge,” she told Hirschberg. “I did heroin for a couple of months.” The catch: her “binge,” in January1992, overlapped with her pregnancy.
When the article hit newsstands in September 1992, Children’s Services of L.A. removed baby Frances Bean from the Cobain household. After several months of legal wrangling (and a voicemail from Cobain calling Hirschberg and another reporter “insane c*nts”), the couple regained custody.
Despite her father shooting himself in the head when she was a toddler, being taken away yet again from her mother for 15 months when she was 12 (after Courtney’s 2003 overdose), and having an “alter ego” named Cherry Kookoo, Frances Bean appears to be relatively stable. In 2008 she became an intern at Rolling Stone, following in Hirschberg’s footsteps.
