Frances Bean Cobain Has Virtual Thanksgiving With Michael Stipe

Frances Bean Cobain showed her ‘Virtual Thanksgiving’ with her godfather Michael Stipe on Twitter. She tweeted, “It ’twas a virtual thanksgiving. My god father is the most handsome, even with pie in his hands @remhq.” She added that she was lucky to have the former R.E.M. frontman as her godfather, “I really am. Not because he’s in a band but because he’s one of smartest, kindest & sincere humans I’ve ever known.”

Cobain also praised Stipe earlier this year on his birthday, “Happy birthday to my god father & 1 of the greatest humans on the planet. I love you eternally. Thanks for being exactly who you are @remhq.”


Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea had some critical words for Thanksgiving last week. He tweeted, “The native Americans were slaughtered, raped, and robbed by the weird, lying invaders who showed up in ships one day.”

He later added, “I’m aware that thanksgiving is about being thankful for bonds with people. I am very thankful. We still murdered the Indians in my thoughts.”

    Frances’s messages must have piled up while she was busy carving and gutting her father’s legacy with Montage of Dreck..

      Although the record managed to hit No. 1 on Billboard’s soundtracks chart and No. 6 on its alternative albums chart, it limped to just No. 121 on the Billboard 200.

      Spin called the set “pretty inessential” and noted that “only the biggest, most dedicated Cobain superfans really had any reason to pick up the album.”

        There were Cobain diehards all over the internet boycotting that shit. It wasn’t just me, believe me. It hit #1 on the Soundtracks chart…what other soundtracks came out this month?

        Seriously, it sold 5,000 copies *worldwide* its first week out. That’s like saying a few kids in a housing development bought it out of all the kids in the state of Texas.

          I thought that was 5K domestic. Anyhow, Nirvana has never sold 5K of anything. So it’s obvious what a shambles this was and a complete flop (Thud noise here) this is. I can only bet anything that Krist or Dave had to sign off on, they utterly refused.

          • Felonious Punk

            I doubt Dave or Krist had any involvement in this whatsoever, since it was all Kurt’s stuff and he had the publishing rights (now possessed by his estate). Even the one or two demo tracks that eventually became actual Nirvana songs were probably all his.


    apparently all the people in the world who found worthwhile the Montage of heck soundtrack took their time to thank Frances personally for it….357 people.

    Michael Stipe…well, I can’t make no jokes about the man who create my favorite album of all time.
