Courtney Love is working on a movie or Broadway musical about her relationship with Kurt Cobain set to Nirvana music, according to none other than Britney Spears’ ex-manager Sam Lufti. Lufti is currently suing Spears and her parents for defamation and explained in court yesterday how he’s been keeping busy. ”[Love and I] are currently working on a possible motion picture or Broadway musical based on the Nirvana catalogue, based on [Love's] life and Kurt Cobain’s,” he explained. Outside the courtroom Lufti clarified the musical/movie is just “an idea,” which I suppose it has to be for now because Love is on bad terms with both her daughter Frances Bean Cobain and Cobain’s ex-bandmates. But hey, if creating a musical that might never get made is keeping Courtney Love busy and off Twitter, I say go on with your bad self. [Guardian UK] [Photo: Bauer Griffin]
The older Frances Bean Cobain gets and the more she comes into her own, the more, I think, she resembles her parents. Dad Kurt Cobain’s pink hair and mom Courtney Love’s full, darkly-painted lips … this photo of her is like taking a time machine back to 1991. Sigh. [Photo (center): Fame/Flynet]
Did I ever think that I’d live in a world in which child star Amanda Bynes would be arrested for smoking weed in her car and Courtney Love would be spotted in such a nice, normal, well-put-together casual outfit? No, no I did not. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
Courtney Love is getting creative, and this time it has nothing to do with naked Twit pics or making accusations that Dave Grohl hit on her daughter. She’s an artist now! Actually, according to Love, she’s always been an artist. Apparently, she studied at the San Francisco Art Institute in the ’80s. Who knew? Anyhow, her first gallery show “And She’s Not Even Pretty” is set to open this week at Fred Torres Collaborations in New York. The show will feature more than 45 of Love’s drawings, many of them with accompanying bits of her poetry and song lyrics. One of the more explicit pieces, “Keep It Up, Mother,” shows a woman on a crucifix with blood running down her naked body. The poetry reads: “How you must have suffered getting accustomed to ME. My savage solitary soul — my NAME that sends them all running …”
Uh oh. Someone is doing deep exploration of her “mothering issues.” AND we can’t wait to see the bloody display. Courtney isn’t the only famous person who has tried her hand at a different creative medium. Plenty of celebs have picked up the palette.

Courtney Love and Twitter always mix like alcohol and heavy machinery, and this time around the singer is accusing former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl of attempting to seduce her daughter, 19-year-old Frances Bean Cobain, and of being “sexually obsessed w kurt.” Gawker has the tweets, which were sent out last night from Love’s protected account. She starts out by tweeting to @davegrohl—who isn’t even the right Dave Grohl, but rather some German guy, Gawker notes—accusing Grohl of hitting on Frances and saying she wants to kill him.

Love her or hate her, you can’t deny that in less than two years, Courtney Stodden has gone from complete unknown to wildly embarrassing campy teen sexpot. This girl does virtually everything in lucite heels — including R-rated makeouts with aging hubby and famewhore Doug Hutchinson in a pumpkin patch – and has a penchant for borderline pornagraphic tweeting. And God, do we love her for it. But then there’s Courtney Love, who has been Bringing It since C. Stodden was in diapers. Literally. (Don’t you hate it when people overstate like that?) So, which is the biggest C-word? And by C-word, we mean, crazy Courtney, of course.

Geez ladies, by now we should all know that referring to anything other than rape as “rape” is just a bad idea. It trivializes what rape actually is and manages to make you look like a complete buffoon. And that’s exactly what Courtney Love did when she claimed the Muppets — the friggin’ Muppets! — “raped” the memory of Kurt Cobain by using Nirvana’s song “Smells Like Teen Spirit” in their movie.
Well, it’s a little more complicated than that. According to TMZ, half of Courtney Love’s rights to Cobain’s music was sold to a company called Primary Wave Music, which gave the Muppets movie permission to use the song. Also, the two surviving members of Nirvana, Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic, gave their permission as well. And Dave Grohol is in the movie. This sounds like another case of What The Hell Are You Talking About, Courtney Love? [TMZ]
