Courney Love Had An Art Show?

Along with being an aging musician and master twitterer,  Courtney Love is also an artist!

Love had a show in NYC, and here are some photos to show that, well, not every successful person is multi-talented.  After losing the right to profit over Kurt Cobain‘s image, she’ll probably be needing some extra income, but I’m not sure if this is the right way of doing it!

What are your thoughts on Courtney Love, the artist?

Courney Love Loses Rights To Kurt Cobain’s Image

Courtney Love loses the rights to her late husband/music legend’s image…to her daughter, Frances Bean Cobain!

19-year-old Frances Bean has taken over control of profits garnered from her late father Kurt’s name, likeness and appearance. Legally, Love agreed to step down as acting manager of End of Music LLC, the corporation overseeing funds generated from Cobain’s publicity rights, when she received a $2.75 million loan from Frances’ trust fund in 2010. Until Love ponies up that money, she won’t get any profits made from Kurt Cobain’s publicity rights.

This will probably put even more strain on Love and Cobain, especially after Love falsely tweeted that Cobain and friend Dave Grohl were going home together.

Frances has been estranged from her mother since 2009, stating drug use, violence and the death of two pets as reasoning.  Says The Huffington Post,  Love’s role in the intellectual property has been rapidly diminishing.  Since losing custody of Frances, Love also lost having control and advising the funds in Frances’ trust fund.

What a mother figure!

Frances Bean Lashes Out at Mom Courtney Love

Hey all, remember when  Courtney Love tweeted about her daughter, Frances Bean Cobain and musician and family friend Dave Grohl? 

Love suspected the two had gone home together, and criticized the pushing-50 Grohl “preying” on Love’s 19-year-old daughter.  Well- it was absolutley untrue, according to Frances Bean herself.  Frances Bean tweeted a response:

“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.”

It’s true. Frances Bean Cobain is engaged to Isaiah Silva, lead singer of the rock band the Rambles.  Dave Grohl, who was also quick to respond about Love’s ridiculous accusations,  is married with children.

Maybe twitter should ban Courtney Love? Or put her in Tweet Purgatory?

VIDEO: Jared Leto as Kurt Cobain

Yesterday was the 17th anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s death. (Can you believe it’s been 17 years!? Damn, I’m old.)

Anyway, in honor of Kurt Cobain, Jared Leto is sharing a video he made years ago of him impersonating the late singer. Apparently he considered playing Kurt years ago when a movie was being made on his life, but the audition tape was never sent out. He chose yesterday as a good day to release the video.

Jared wrote on his blog:

I heard today was the day Kurt passed away 17 years ago. Can’t believe it’s been that long. So grateful for his contribution and inspiration. Not sure I’d be doing this if it weren’t for him. He gave us all permission to create no matter what our skill set and reminded me that dreams are possible. Thanks for that. This made me recall a short piece of film I shot when I heard they were making a film celebrating his life. 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…

He looks just like him! Creepy!

Paris Hilton: “I can’t stand black guys”

Well, in case you didn’t hear, Paris Hilton just “can’t stand black guys”…

Did she say this to the press recently? Nope.

Words that Paris said back in 1999 have come back to haunt her.

So what’s the deal?

American journalist, author, and ghost writer Neil Strauss has a new book that’s releasing this week called Everyone Loves You When You’re Dead. Los Angeles’ local alternative paper, LA Weekly, gives a great summary of the book:

The tome reveals shocking things about -and intimate moments with- the author’s vast array of interview subjects over the years: Lady Gaga bawling over an ex-boyfriend, Courtney Love considering snorting Kurt Cobain‘s ashes ala Keith Richards (this one’s already making the gossip site rounds) , Dave Navarro‘s penchant for $2000 hookers, Marilyn Manson‘s grave gigging jollies (Strauss co-wrote MM’s autobio, “Long Hard Road Outta Hell”), Julian Casablancas‘ dickishness, Snoop Dogg blunt bonanzas (okay the last three aren’t so shocking) and various rock stars’ beefs, fetishes (peeing, toes), and penchants for drugs and booze… which, by the way, no one chose to hide while they were being recorded and observed for press!

One thing that Strauss decided to leave out was a hate letter from Phil Collins.

One thing that Strauss decided to publish was a run-in with Paris he had back in 1999, during which Paris decided to take a hit of ecstasy, brag about her boob job that she got when she was 14 (and how her mom made her remove them), explain how she wanted to pose for Playboy (and tell her dad about it, so he would pay her twice as much NOT to pose), and… point out which guy she made out with (but stopped when he saw him in the light and noticed he was black).

Here’s an excerpt from Strauss’ book:

In 1999, shortly after moving to Los Angeles to cover pop culture for the New York Times, I ended up in a room with someone I’d never heard of before. She seemed to embody young Hollywood. She didn’t want to be an actress, a singer, or a star – though she would soon become all three. The art form she’d chosen to embrace was partying.  She was with a model friend of hers and talking about performing a sex show together for someone named Artie the previous night, then taking dirty photographs afterward. In the background as we spoke, the movie Saving Private Ryan was playing. After this conversation, she proceeded to get drunk on Midori sours (each with six cherries in the glass), make out with David Faustino of Married… with Children, take a hit of ecstasy, play Britney Spears songs practically nonstop, and have a threesome. Maybe she said what follows for provocation and shock value. Maybe she didn’t. You decide…

PARIS HILTON: I had a breast job when I was fourteen, but my mother made me take them out.

How old are you now?

HILTON: I’m eighteen.

Are you working?

HILTON: I’m thinking about posing for Playboy. They love famous people’s kids.

Like who?

HILTON: I don’t know. And the only reason I’d do it is because when my dad finds out, he’ll pay me double the money not to do it.


HILTON: I went out with that guy last night.

Which guy?

HILTON (points to an actor in Saving Private Ryan): We were making out, but then we went somewhere where it was bright and saw that he was black and made an excuse and left. I can’t stand black guys. I would never touch one. It’s gross (pauses) . Does that guy look black to you?

How black does a guy have to be?

HILTON: One percent is enough for me.

And there it is. This is how words from the past are slapping Miss Hilton in the face.

Party like it’s 1999.
