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

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…

Frances Bean Cobain “Didn’t Like Nirvana That Much.”

Frances Bean Cobain slams Lana Del Ray for death comments

Frances Bean Cobain might be rock royalty- but she’s been keeping out of the spotlight for years. Now 22 and a visual artist, Kurt Cobain‘s daughter speaks publicly for the first time about her father; life after his death; her complex relationship with her mother, Courtney Love; and the new film, written, directed and produced by Brett Morgen. Rolling Stone reports:

On her dad’s band: I don’t really like Nirvana that much [grins]. Sorry, promotional people, Universal. I’m more into Mercury Rev, Oasis, Brian Jonestown Massacre [laughs]. The grunge scene is not what I’m interested in. But “Territorial Pissings” [on Nevermind] is a fucking great song. And “Dumb” [on In Utero] – I cry every time I hear that song. It’s a stripped-down version of Kurt’s perception of himself – of himself on drugs, off drugs, feeling inadequate to be titled the voice of a generation.

On not being interested in her dad’s music: I would have felt more awkward if I’d been a fan. I was around 15 when I realized he was inescapable. Even if I was in a car and had the radio on, there’s my dad. He’s larger than life. and our culture is obsessed with dead musicians. We love to put them on a pedestal. If Kurt had just been another guy who abandoned his family in the most awful way possible . . . But he wasn’t. He inspired people to put him on a pedestal, to become St. Kurt. He became even bigger after he died than he was when he was alive. You don’t think it could have gotten any bigger. But it did.

On being 22: It’s the first year a fire has been lit under my ass – not because of the documentary, just personally. I have this motivation and ambition that I didn’t have before: “I want to go paint this painting.” The hardest part of doing anything creatively is just getting up and doing. Once I get out of bed and get into my art room, I start painting. I’m there. And I’m doing it.

On her new documentary about Nirvana, Montage of Heck: It’s emotional journalism. It’s the closest thing to having Kurt tell his own story in his own words – by his own aesthetic, his own perception of the world. It paints a portrait of a man attempting to cope with being a human. When Brett and I first met, I was very specific about what I wanted to see, how I wanted Kurt to be represented. I told him, “I don’t want the mythology of Kurt or the romanticism.” Even though Kurt died in the most horrific way possible, there is this mythology and romanticism that surrounds him, because he’s 27 forever. The shelf life of an artist or musician isn’t particularly long. Kurt has gotten to icon status because he will never age. He will always be that relevant in that time and always be beautiful.There is, with any great artist, a little manic-ness and insanity. Tropic of Cancer is one of my favorite books. And [author] Henry Miller had this work ethic, where he would get out of bed every day and force himself to write five pages. It taught me that if you do the work, you progress. So many people are content to settle. My dad was exceptionally ambitious. But he had a lot thrown on him, exceeding his ambition. He wanted his band to be successful. But he didn’t want to be the fucking voice of a generation.

About That “Leaked” Nirvana Song – It’s A Fake

2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Viewing Party - C

Sorry to disappoint the hardcore Nirvana fans, but the supposed new song that hit YouTube last week is a fraud.   Courtney Love wasn’t hacked and wasn’t hiding an unreleased track on her laptop, dashing the dreams of Kurt Cobain fans everywhere.

Sources tell TMZ … Love caught wind of the tune — which was uploaded to YouTube last week — and with the help of a real Nirvana member … confirmed it was fake. Courtney is part owner of Cobain’s music rights, and got YouTube to take down the song.

The people behind the fake jam claimed to have hacked Love’s computer to uncover a rare track … which Cobain never planned to release. We’re told that whole story is also fake — Courtney never had the song … nor was she ever hacked.

Still, her lawyer Richard Dongell tells us Love is pissed off enough about the phony recording that she’s working with law enforcement to track down the impostor.

I didn’t catch the song before it was pulled, was it even any good?  Could it have passed for Nirvana?

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?
