because nobody knows what the drummer is thinking
‘The threats only stopped after Isaiah’s family hired Courtney’s former private investigator,’
he is described as Courtney Love’s confident, ex-manager, old friend
Things are really getting ugly, but what is this?
This is my own kind of Kickstarter/Kickbutter
Lufti was Courtney Love’s manager
Sources close to Love insisted she wasn’t kicked out
‘all gifts, inheritance, bequests and all other pre-marital assets… and/or awarded to her as her separate property’
‘his response was “If you’re asking rather i think he was murdered or not. the answer is YES.’
By releasing these pictures the police only make things look worse… Check out the size of this shotgun!
A project described as a movie which ‘goes in search of the forces that made and then destroyed the singer’
This is the problem with the Internet crazy snowball, once it’s out it’s all over the place, and it’s rarely accurate.
‘So I can show the lawyer evidence that she tried to kill me by pushing me down a flight of steps at the palladium’
Love couldn’t be prouder of the new collaboration, as she explained to Vogue: ‘I wasn’t going to be on it if it wasn’t a real collaboration, so, it really is.’
Merry Christmas Kurt, the greatest true love I’ve ever experienced in my life.
Both departures were precipitated and Hopper claimed she was very distressed, vomiting in the driveway while departing the estate: ‘I was sick for two days when I got back because I was such a mess.’ What could have make her so sick?
Just like me, Buzz is big on facts and he has understood that people are not very interested by facts and much prefer to listen to their feelings and what they want to believe. This could apply to a lot of things and stories and meanwhile facts and useful information are lost, ignored… I just wonder how much we still don’t know in the investigation into Kurt Cobain’s death.
Grant left the note where it was, but in a recent interview with WEMF Radio he gave a few more information regarding what happened to this 4th note, as he called it, because there were a few others. Grant found the note around 2:15 am in the main house, and at 8 am, the police arrived at the scene because Gary Smith the electrician had found Kurt’s body.
According to the Mirror, Frances called her mother on the phone after the ceremony, ‘Frances is totally loved up with Isaiah, but she’s never been one to broadcast it to the world,’ said a source to the Mirror. ‘She only invited a close circle of friends to the party, and then phoned her mum afterwards to tell her the good news.’
‘‘I’d be biased to think that the community of Geminis is the most consistently in tune with what their spirit is telling them to do or why they have breath in their lungs. But I do think that creative Geminis—Tupac, Biggie, Prince, Miles Davis, all being Geminis—have, throughout history, been really in tune with those things.’
‘I understand that the Plaintiff seeks the public release of death-scene photos of Kurt that show his entire lifeless body, as well as the damage done by the shotgun blast to his head’, reads her legal declaration. ‘I have never seen these graphic and disturbing images, nor do I ever want to. I cannot believe that there exists any genuine public interest which might be served by the public release of these images. Certainly, public disclosure would reopen all my old wounds, and cause me and my family permanent – indeed, endless, and needless – pain and suffering, and would be a gross violation of our privacy interests.’
Anyway, the independent theater hasn’t denied it, it has even tweeted the following a few days ago: ‘Regarding Soaked in Bleach. the engagement was cancelled, Join us for one of the many great #indiefilms we regularly present in #Hollywood’.
‘Before we even got to watch it though, a man entered the theater and told us that Courtney had put out a Cease and Desist order in and her lawyer had been in touch with the theater. They played the film anyway! Many of the people in the theater walked out looking stunned’
Denise and Chloe are two ferocious young women, they both have an extraordinary presence on stage, bold and fearless, but do they really need to admire someone like Love to show they are badass? Is it now cool to have love for Love? Love is a lot of thing but a role model she isn’t!
Cobain’s death was ruled a suicide by the Seattle Police Department shortly after his body was found, but 21 years later, suspicions and theories around the events leading to his death have never been more alive, and a long series of inconsistencies, oddities and plain weirdness (including taped phone conversations with Courtney Love) have let Tom Grant to continue his investigation about the case till this day
‘No one ever questions the disorder behind her tarantula LA glamour — sociopathy, narcissism — because it’s good rock and roll, good entertainment! I have a low tolerance for manipulative, egomaniacal behavior, and usually have to remind myself that the person might be mentally ill.’
If Morgen had wanted to make a film about the impressions that Cobain may have inspired him, the overwhelming sensations that a Nirvana concert may have left on him, I would be totally fine with it, and I would even said this is brilliant. Unfortunately he sells us his movie as the first authorized documentary about Kurt Cobain, and this is where I have a problem, because when it comes to documentaries, I care about fact-checking.
‘I found his actual suicide letter, which was unexpected. I just opened up this heart shaped box and there it was. And I was like ‘Based on everything I’ve witnessed, this makes no sense.’ Kurt didn’t have a problem with quitting music; he talked about it openly. If he wanted to stop performing, he would just stop. Nothing was leading up to that suicide letter.’
‘In response to recent articles regarding comments from Kurt’s daughter, Frances, I want to make it clear that Frances is an innocent victim here. The real questions is; What does Frances really KNOW as opposed to WHAT SHE’S BEEN TOLD?’ Exactly!
“Gold Mountain, [Nirvana’s management company], still denies that a suicide attempt was made. A note was found, says a company spokesman, but Kurt insisted it wasn’t a suicide note. He just took all of his and Courtney’s money and was going to run away and disappear.’
Things didn’t seem to be doing so well not so long ago, first Love lost custody of her daughter in 2009 when Cobain was just 17, and she was sent to live with her grandmother, then, a few years ago Frances accused her mother to have killed her pet,
I was so surprised to see that 71-year-old Joni Mitchell becoming the new face for Yves Saint Laurent. The 70’s folk legend was photographed by Hedi Slimane for the designer’s ongoing music project, which has previously featured Ariel Pink, Courtney Love, Kim Gordon and Marilyn Manson
if it is a new career for Love, it’s definitively a modest new beginning. Never mind, the Hole frontwoman is still a diva and makes it very clear, she can relate to the story: the opera is about two Midwestern lovers, who are pulled apart by the woman’s ambition, which takes her to New York City.
However, I love both of Lana’s albums and it should be something of real interest Love opening for her. It could be the worst thing ever seen by man, or it could be better than it has any right to be. Either way, Lana and Courtney are touring next year
This sounds quite amazing and the most astonishing part is the name of Frances Bean Cobain, as the executive producer. Brett Morgen, who also directed ‘The Kid Stays in the Picture’, will write, direct and produce the documentary, and so far Courtney Love’s name is not associated with it, which could be the best part of the whole story
‘To address the most obvious, inevitable question that I will be asked…this is not fake. Whether you think she’s the worst or this just makes her all the more “punk rock” is for you to decide. I’m merely presenting the facts as they are. Make of them what you will’
‘I make enough to live on. I’m financially solvent. I focus on what I make now’, she also told the Times. And this is the same woman who insulted David Grohl for stealing and wasting Nirvana’s money… saying in one of her numerous stage rants, ‘The Foo Fighters are gay. I don’t care what you listen to at home, but if a guy takes off money off my kid’s table, f**k him.’
This is not the first time that Mary Lou Lord posts stories about Courtney Love’s terrible accusations against her on her Facebook page, and this is not the first time this attracts the attention of music blogs. This time, Mary Lou Lord stumbled on some old Courtney Love’s interview – in which, Courtney being Courtney, talks about her prowess, meaning the time she beat MLL’s ass after a Hole show at the Palladium
many believe that the famous the line ‘it’s better to burn out than to fade away’ taken from his alleged suicide note (it is actually a line from a Neil Young song) was a bye-bye to the music industry rather than to life, as Cobain had become really fed up with the fame game
‘It was the Hall of Fame ceremony, but it meant so much to all of us personally that sometimes you forgot about the other stuff — like the arena and the trophy — and focused on real, personal things. I saw Courtney walking past [earlier in the night], and I just tapped her on the shoulder and we looked at each other in the eyes and that was it — we’re just family
At age 49 she insists upon tossing herself into media at any opportunity an army of PR professionals could never clear her name- ever. Forever doomed as the psycho chick shes gotten too old for it to be cool. Now she wants to make more music.
Man, Solange has been hot lately: beating up Hay Z and having it caught on camera, a side trip to a wedding in South America, filled it at Webster hall on the Saturday, tweeting that Mother’s Day was one of the best days of her life, and then on Tuesday, she released this masterful new r&b track with Chromeo. Hot indeed – A
It’s written on some San Francisco hotel stationery paper, it is undated and we don’t even know who wrote it, Kurt or Courtney? Was it a joke, was it a real sentiment than Kurt had for his wife before his death?
All these articles were published by Spin magazine, only this year. Has Spin magazine become Courtney Love’s personal diary or free promo-platform? Or is it really free? At one point a magazine stops doing journalism and become a kiss-ass rag for some declining and controversial rock figure?
1994 Hole’s album ‘Live Through This’ was released on April 12, just four days after Kurt Cobain’s body was found in his Seattle home, and she is reported to have said things like ‘all publicity is good publicity’ and ‘It might even help sell records!
Courtney Love is insane, that’s a fact but it’s not your average insanity, it comes wrapped around an ego whose size just equals her humongous assurance and strong opinion. Now CSI Courtney Love thinks she has found the vanishing Malaysia Airlines plane
she pretended that her tweet ‘was never intended to be public, and upon learning it wasn’t a private message, immediately removed it’. So Courtney Love didn’t know what Twitter is? What a joke. She also said that ‘the entire Twitter Posting was hyperbole making light of Holmes’ constant attention-seeking, and not a statement of fact’… attention-seeking?
Do you think Kurt would have killed himself if he had known he had $54 million?’ I will never understand Courtney Love’s math, but that’s the least important point in this story, however, expect a lot of this ‘fraud’ in her memoirs,… I just want her to explain how she killed Kurt Cobain.
