Courtney Love Talks Sex With Kurt Cobain: “He’s A Hard Act To Follow.”

2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Viewing Party - C

20 years after his death, Courtney Love professes that she will always love Kurt Cobain

The rocker recently opened up about her romance with the music icon in an interview with Brett Morgen for V Magazine.   Morgen directed the new HBO documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, which Love and Frances Bean co-executive produced. The film was Love’s idea, but watching it wasn’t easy for her, at all. US reports:

“It f–ked me up. I remembered the sexual relationship, which, as you know, is the core of any good marriage,” she shared of her romance with the late Nirvana icon. “It almost rendered other intimacies meaningless. I remembered how much I love him, and it made me think about a few other people I don’t want to name, but a few other people I’ve been in love with. And should I have married them? The answer is actually no.”

(Notably, Cobain was Love’s second husband; she was previously, albeit briefly, wed to The Leaving Trains rocker James Moreland. She has also been linked to Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan and actor Edward Norton, among others.)

“Nobody else was as funny,” the Empire guest star told Morgen. “Nobody else was as compatible and got my jokes. And you can see it in the film.”

Love also debunked the common misconception that she was the “bad guy” in her relationship with Cobain, saying he hated that rumor just as much as she did, because “it shamed him, it emasculated him, and it made him look weak” in the public eye.

“It kind of f–ked me up, and to be honest with you, I don’t have a boyfriend right now, so I’m single. [The film] made me really evaluate what, at the age of 50, I want out of a relationship,” she continued. “He’s a hard act to follow. I love him and I always will.”

It’s true- how CAN ANYONE date Courtney Love? First of all, she definitely still loves her ex, and secondly, she’s a bit insane. I guess it’s all a part of the rock and roll roller coaster…

John Travolta Happy With Scientology; Won’t See “Going Clear”

John Travolta Films "The Forger"

John Travolta is standing his ground.

When asked in a telephone interview if he would see Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, he replied: “No, I haven’t, and I don’t really care to.”

Directed by Alex Gibney, the documentary is based on Lawrence Wright‘s book which discusses the inconsistencies, inaccuracies and injustices in Scientology, including physical abuse and blackmail. Since its debut March 29 on HBO, Going Clear has renewed scrutiny of the Church’s practices and has many segments which feature Travolta’s journey. The Tampa Bay Times Reports:

“I haven’t experienced anything that the hearsay has (claimed), so why would I communicate something that wasn’t true for me?” Travolta said. “It wouldn’t make sense, nor would it for Tom, I imagine.”

Travolta called Going Clear a product of “people who were disgruntled with their experiences” with Scientology, while the church “has been nothing but brilliant for me.”

“I’ve been so happy with my (Scientology) experience in the last 40 years,” he said, “that I really don’t have anything to say that would shed light on (a documentary) so decidedly negative.

“I’ve been brought through storms that were insurmountable, and (Scientology has) been so beautiful for me, that I can’t even imagine attacking it.”

Of course you can’t. Which is also outlined in the movie…

Have you guys seem Going Clear? Share your thoughts below!

Leah Remini Speaks Out About Controversial New Scientology Documentary

Celebs Doing An Interview For EXTRA

As an Ex-Scientologist, Leah Remini is open about supporting the Going Clear filmmakers.

Three months after premiering at Sundance, the controversial Alex Gibney documentary targeting the history and sketchy practices of the Church of Scientology aired in primetime on HBO, and the actress/former Scientologist is applauding the film’s message.

Remini famously left the church in 2013 for the sake of her daughter, Sofia, who was approaching the age when children begin the “auditing” process.  Remini commended Gibney and the Going Clear filmmakers for blowing the lid off the secretive organization, according to Us Weekly.

“Thank you to the brave who did something about it. And to those who didn’t have a voice, you do now,” the former King of Queens actress, 44, tweeted Sunday.

A little background info: Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, is about former members of the Church (including writer/director Paul Haggis) recounting pretty crazy stuff that happened to them during their years practicing the “religion.” It is AMAZING, so if you’re into some muckracking, controversial Hollywood info, I would urge you to make like Leah Remini and check it out!

Britney Spears Talks Sex, Vegas and Fame In New Documentary

Britney Spears Watching Jayden Play Soccer

Though she doesn’t look so famous in this pic (she’s watching her kiddies play soccer!) Britney Spears has a LOT to say about a lifetime in the spotlight in her new documentary, “I am Britney Jean.”

The Britney Spears’ E! special premiered on Sunday, and the 32-year-old pop star gave plenty of weird and titilating quotes during her interview. All’s fair game when it comes to Brit Brit, am I right? Here are some highlights, via X17:

On Gearing up For Her Vegas Show: “This is a big year for me, it’s the first show I’ve done in two years,” she admitted. “I am trying to let myself relax a little bit but not too much because I know that I have a lot ahead of me.” She added that she has “hardly seen” boyfriend David Lucado in weeks.

On Sex: “I love sex, I think sex is great, but I feel a little different about it now that I’m older. Sometimes I feel like I’m 20, sometimes I feel like I’m 50.”

On Love: “Love is just an unexplainable thing and there’s a saying that I have in my bathroom in Louisiana. It says ‘Go beyond reason to love, for it’s the only safety there is.’ And it’s true, you should always go beyond reason to love and to be with the person you want to be with and to be cherished and to be treasured. I think it’s why we’re here as people.”
