Frances Bean Cobain Is A Chip Off The Ol’ Block

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]

Conspiracy Theory: Paul Ryan Cribbed From Nirvana

We’re going to suggest taking this one with a shaker full of salt, but the Internet is buzzing with accusations that Paul Ryan stole the kinda-vaguely touching anecdote he told about his daughter during last night’s debate from, of all people, Kurt Cobain. In response to a question about abortion, Ryan told the story of how he’d nicknamed his daughter Liza “Bean” because when he saw his wife’s first ultrasound “our little baby was in the shape of a bean.” Read more…

  • Frances Bean Cobain’s PR people just sent out the following statement from the daughter of Courtney Love, regarding her mother’s recent claim that ex-Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl “hit on” her: “While I’m generally silent on the affairs of my biological mother, her recent tirade has taken a gross turn.  I have never been approached by Dave Grohl in more than a platonic way.  I’m in a monogamous relationship and very happy. Twitter should ban my mother.” Good for Frances for setting the record straight. 
  • Scarlett Johansson opened up about her divorce from Ryan Reynolds in the latest issue of Vogue, which she called “horrible” and “devastating.” Even though their divorce was “comically amicable,” Scarlett said, “I don’t feel on the other side of it completely” and regrets that while they were married they couldn’t spend more time together because of their busy careers. ScarJo comes off as surprisingly relatable in this interview. [Vogue]
  • Axl Rose won’t attend this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony as a member of Guns N’ Roses and wrote a letter to the Hall of Fame stating, “I strongly request that I not be inducted in absentia.” Axl Rose and ex-bandmate Slash haven’t shared a stage for almost two decades. [Rolling Stone]

Courtney Love Says Dave Grohl Is “Sexually Obsessed” With Kurt Cobain, Accuses Him Of Hitting On Frances Bean

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.

“Mad? Ya think?! If he came back right now I’d have to kill him, for what he did to us. I’d f**king kill him. I’d f**k him, and then I’d kill him.”

Courtney Love kind of went off when a Vanity Fair writer asked her if she was angry at husband Kurt Cobain for committing suicide. Honestly, Courtney is probably going to get a lot of crap for this quote, but I don’t blame her for being pissed. The issues that drive people to take their own life — depression, illness, etc. — are complicated and hard to grasp and for that reason, I really loathe it when people write suicide off as simply “selfish.” However, the impact suicide has on the surviving family members and loved ones is also complicated and hard to grasp and for that reason I hope Courtney is cut a break for her comments.

In the article, Love also discusses her complicated (is anything not complicated with this woman?) relationship with estranged daughter Frances Bean. Check out more, after the jump… Keep reading »

Courtney Love Is Concerned About Frances Bean’s Tattoos

“I didn’t know she had that many tattoos! We don’t talk but we email, so I didn’t know about the new ones she’d gotten. When she first got that Jeff Buckley thing I was, like, she knows I went on a date with him, right? And I saw the Quentin Crisp, I was incredibly impressed. I was like ‘Awww, that’s my daughter!’ … Well, yeah she’s beautiful. What else did you expect! She’s my kid!”

Courtney Love may be pretty much estranged from 18-year-old daughter Frances Bean Cobain but she’s still got a mother’s concern about her daughter’s ink. Frances recently posed for some absolutely breathtaking photos by the high-art photographer Hedi Slimane. Who would have thought that of all the famous teens to do photoshoots, the child of Courtney Love’s would be the most tasteful? [NY Observer] Keep reading »

Who’s That Girl? Frances Bean Cobain Is All Grown Up!

Damn. How amazing does Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of the late Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, look in this photograph shot by designer Hedi Slimane? Other pics on Slimane’s blog show that Frances shares her mom’s love of tattoos, though I think her face looks like the perfect mix of both her parents. Check out a few more after the jump!

Quotable: Courtney Love Implies Frances Bean Is A Druggie

“She is going to be 18 on 15 August. Thank God, because then this whole palaver will be done. She lives in a mansion by herself. A 17-year-old getting $40,000 a month is outrageous to me—that’s on top of them paying for the mansion. She lives with her nanny, and Grandma Wendy and Kim [Kurt Cobain’s mother and sister] live two doors down, but there’s no drug testing going on. It’s a lot of money for a normal person. It’s enough money to kill her, if she is doing drugs, enough money to be gone by the time she’s 22.”

Frances Bean Cobain’s Art Isn’t Disturbing, It’s Good!

With Kurt Cobain as a dad and Courtney Love as a mom, it only makes sense that 17-year-old Frances Bean Cobain is an artiste. Under the pseudonym “Fiddle Tim,” Frances Bean will exhibit several of her drawings at Los Angeles’ La Luz De Jesus gallery and has sold all of her work for the reasonable price of between $250 to $400 each. “Celestial Splendor” is the charcoal work depicted here; “Treat Me Like Your Mother Or I’ll Eat The Sun” shows a big green alien head, and another drawing of a man standing next to a goat with the caption “I don’t owe you s**t.” Angsty, yes, but I think the girl’s got talent. Media outlets are saying Frances Bean’s art is “disturbing,” but the only thing I think is disturbing is the name of the exhibit: “Scumf**k.” Still, that’s tame in this family.

10 Reasons Why Frances Bean Is Ditching Courtney Love

Poor Frances Bean Cobain. On top of having a dead father she also has the most bat s**t, crazy mother in the world. So crazy is her mommy dearest that she had to try to escape before her 18th birthday. We all let out a little sigh of relief last week when Crazney Love lost custody of Frances. The word is that Cobain’s paternal grandmother and aunt filed a motion to keep custody proceedings confidential from the public because they include “domestic violence” allegations. I wish I could say I was surprised. Again … poor Frances. I hope she will be able to heal from what I can only imagine must have been a very erratic childhood. After the jump, 10 reasons why we think Frances Bean knew it was time to split. As if the physical abuse wasn’t enough. [Newser] Keep reading »
