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?
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.
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?
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.
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…
