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…
