Justin Bieber Meets Courtney Love & Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic

Courtney Love attended the debut of Saint Laurent’s men’s fall fashion line at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles last night with Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic. The pair met Justin Bieber, as seen below. Love described Bieber as ‘such a gentleman.’ Novoselic also praised the young pop stars, tweeting: ‘Everybody loves Justin.’ Love also hung out with Lady Gaga backstage.

Justin Bieber’s stylist Karla Welch spoke to Esquire in November about Justin Bieber wearing a Nirvana t-shirt to the American Music Awards.

“It’s not the first time he’s worn a Nirvana tee. We just have a nice collection of vintage tees, and then the tee he wore yesterday was actually Jerry Lorenzo’s from Fear of God. Jerry takes vintage tees and re-cuts them.”

Welch continued: “Of course he’s a fan of Nirvana. I think it’s so funny that all these people are up in arms. I’m sure Kurt Cobain would be like – I mean I can’t speak for him, obviously – but I don’t think he was so snotty or that he would diss anyone who appreciated his music. I think he understood that that is like the antithesis of music appreciation.

“It’s so funny. But you know, fans are fans!” she added. “Whatever you want to say about being pop, but I don’t think Kurt Cobain gave two fucks, and I don’t think Justin Bieber does either. You know what I mean?”

Kurt Cobain’s widow Courtney Love had a surprising reaction to Bieber’s shirt: she loved it. Love tweeted, “You’re cool in my book Justin Bieber.”

Kurt Cobain’s Ex-Girlfriend: ‘Courtney Love Threatened To Cut Off My Head & Burn Down My House’

Kurt Cobain’s ex-girlfriend Mary Lou Lord made headlines across the internet last week for her comments on Courtney Love, and she was at it again over the weekend with the following Facebook post:

I should have sued the bitch a long time ago.
But that’s not something that ever would have fixed anything. Maybe
temporarily, but it wasn’t and never will be a thing money can heal.

I never came up to her and said a thing.
She broke my teeth, she cracked my skull and she caused
me years of hell. The physical pain went away, but her words, and
her lies and the impact it left never went away. I honestly feel that
people should know about this.
Here in this photo/interview, she admits it. It was taken off of you tube, but
in this interview, she tells of the night she beat me, chased me, and so forth.

I did watch soaked in bleach, and regardless
of my stance on his death, which, I have no opinion on, it re-ignited an anger
in me that I never thought would be so profound. Anger is bad. I hate it.
But if you think I am saying all this now for any potential gain in anything, I am not.
I could have sued her. I didn’t. I tried to take the high road and move on.
I just tried to make the best music I could, and not let this effect me.
But she carried on attacking me for years, and I was in constant fear. Insane fear.
She threatened me, she also threatened my elderly parents who I was living
with through the many years of my early career. She threatened to burn our house down, and threatened to kill me with a gun, and cut off my head.
I’m not sorry to vent this publicly. That Soaked In Bleach movie just rattled
me so much. And I think people should know. She might be doing better now, but I still feel inside her, she is a rotten person . Money helps, clearly. (To a sociopath like her), and now, She has tons of it. Through law suits that HIS MONEY paid for!!! and the damage that SHE brought upon herself! So, why “wouldn’t” she be doing “better now”?
The movie just triggered so many emotions. How sad and pointless.
His death itself, etc. Just so fucking sad. It also triggered feelings about how
sad Elliott’s passing was as well. If you think this was easy for me, and others who went through this at that time, you’re wrong. I don’t think I’m entirely batshit crazy for talking about this either. I know I will let it go, and I think this is part of the process. It’s gross in a way to talk publicly about it all (i know that), but you, as fans and music lovers, and friends, are part of the fabric that this entire world of the music we make, and love, is woven from. It’s our reality, and our emotions regarding it, should never be denied.

Kurt Cobain’s Ex-Girlfriend ‘Received Death Threats’ From Courtney Love

Yesterday, we reported on Kurt Cobain’s ex-girlfriend Mary Lou Lord unloading on Courtney Love in a Facebook post. When went even more in-depth on a second post:

“I just wanted to thank you guys for being cool and tolerating my ranting

about CL over the last few days. Something did indeed spark it…but I’m trying to let it all go now. A lot of you (old friends), were right there with me in the middle of this black tornado’s thrust, and I know it effected you too. It was a very weird and sad time for so many of us. For those of you who were there, this is for you too. I know your feelings aren’t that far removed. And although we don’t see each other much these days, know I love you.

I know this is long, and boring….and yes, it is public. It’s just as public as the VERY public (in print, etc) , kick in the guts she gave me over an extended amount of time, and extended amount of threats. One, that has been a long time getting over, and one, that’s been a long time letting go of. Everyone should be able to have their day where they say exactly what they have wanted to say to someone who violated them. I’m most likely never gonna write a book, and if I suddenly croak, I want to finally have my say and my voice heard on this. Not hers. Mine.

I’ve mentioned things here and there, but out of respect for Kurt and Frances, I never fully publicized ALL my feelings on this subject. No kid should have to read shitty things said about their parents. Especially when they are unable to understand or formulate their own opinions. Also, in the past, when I did say a few things here and there, it was FOR Frances if she had ever read what Courtney herself said about me concerning Kurt. What Courtney said, was actually a put down to her own husband. Those of you who know what I am talking about will understand what I mean. I said it in defense OF Kurt. He was NOT that kind of a guy who would do that. I wanted Frances (if she had ever privately read it), to know that. -That was one of the other incredibly disturbing aspects of Courtney’s lies. How it was also a total defamation of Kurt’s character within the context of her lie, and her wording. Printed in Rolling Stone, just weeks after he had died, when SHE was on the cover. And of course, Hole’s Live Through This, was #1. And, for weeks after this, it was HER not ME who was bringing attention to any involvement I might have had with him. I felt like a dork. I NEVER brought it up in interviews. It was her who planted any of the fucked up attention it got to begin with. I just wanted to hide and cry.

In the past, I let (or, I thought I had), let it go. I guess that for some reason there was still a part that I hadn’t let go of. Anger is shitty. Anger over something that happened 22 years ago. It might have something to do with these movies coming out, and having to partially re-live a feeling that never really went away. Or, was dormant. Seeing her or even hearing about her, kind of jolts me into anger. Why now? I dunno. Why do some people who got violated by priests, or hurt decades prior suddenly have the need to come forth and tell their story? I was absolutely emotionally violated by her, and it hurt me more than anyone will ever know. The defamation, the lies, and the spin off of that. Having to deal over the years with fans of hers who hated me for something that was not true to begin with. They clung on her every word, every move. Also, I was petrified of her. I feared for my life. There was no way to fight back-she was too powerful and no one would have believed me(trying to fight her lies), nor, would they have given a shit. I was a no-one. I still am pretty much a no one in comparison with her, but I am much more fearless now. I suppose, in a way, it’s similar to how years later when people are grown up, and if they were abused, and had to remain silent, they finally confront a pedophile priest or abusive person that is now old, and elderly, and broken. To finally confront a person who scared the living shit out of them, as well as abused them either emotionally, or physically. It IS a relief. It really is. I don’t look at her with pity really, (she is more beautiful than ever, and seems happy, etc)….But I feel like I can finally speak out because I am not alone any longer. People don’t believe her. I am not alone.

I just feel kind of sick whenever I see her in the press, or whatever. It’s just so gross…Doing nothing. Just being rich and “better now”…..Has she ever done one thing that was out of the kindness of her heart, or charity, or anything other than promote herself? I know she’s all for “chicks should rock”…..yea, well no shit….But dam, she could have done SO MUCH MORE with the power she had. She did nothing in any kind of humanitarian gesture. I am not saying that she is not talented, a great actress, funny, crazy smart, well versed, profound, and all the rest. Of course she is. But, she (way inside) is very, very sick. And it borders on an evil sickness that people with real feelings and an ability to feel BAD or sad have, and she, does not. She just runs on total mind, and power. But NOT heart or soul. You can hear nothing in her voice. Not even her scream. It is void.

I have a certain rage, and it’s now coming out. I’m not jealous at all of her though (ironically), omg, how could you be? she is SO loathed and hated. The karmic kick back with that woman is insane. I don’t feel at all sorry for her either. (How the fuck could you)? ….Back in the day, She had ALL the power. But she is not taken seriously now. People for the most part, know more about her. Even the young women and men who were her biggest fans. Many of them turned against her once they knew more about her. They grew up. She had a field day back when the internet was new and all the lies she would spread about me. She told people I killed her cat. She told stories upon stories on the internet (that old AOL Hole folder)…. (DOCUMENTED and downloaded to prove she did), countless grotesque lies that I could NOT stop her from spreading. I was not only was in fear of her, I was in fear of her fans. Countless times I would come out from a club, or the subway, and my car windshield would have been written on with lipstick “you suck”, or “fuck you” signed “Courtney. People would come up to me and say the most rotten things to me. Not even knowing me- All Courtney fans that were brainwashed by her or something……Then, the obvious forged fax, and the shit she said about me in Rolling Stone-The one where she was on the cover! Then, every time I looked on mtv etc….there she was. With people fawning and falling all over her. “The Princess” rock star. And all the while I KNEW how horrible she was as a person. She violated my integrity, she violated my life, she even left death threats to ME as well as my elderly parents on their answering machine causing a lot of stress and weird fear within our family. It was INSANE. Like having a gangster threaten you. Whitey Bulger or something. It was partially amusing because it was so nuts, but in the back of our minds, we were questioning “is she for real”. Will someone light our home on fire? etc etc…. In any case, made it hard to sleep at night. My parents were old and lovely, and didn’t deserve that. I felt like I had brought that pox with me -again, but not having ever done a single thing to deserve that…. I lived with my parents at the time….awful for them to have had to deal with that.

If she was just some random chick that was going around on her facebook or my space or something saying shit about another chick- that is one thing. But she was one of the biggest pop stars in the world at the time, and everyone loved her-the “grieving widow”, etc etc….so, the dynamic and the impact is a lot greater regarding the emotional toll , the incredible sadness, fear, and feeling of absolute powerlessness she made me feel. Knowing millions of people were reading her interviews, etc, and all the rotten things she was saying about me. All untrue. I was just a small town nobody busker who loved songs and friends, etc….and suddenly (very publicly), I was a fictional character she made up. She made me feel like a frightened child after she emotionally abused and violated me. She threatened me, she punched me, kicked me, chased me, and nearly had me killed that night on Sunset. And then, it continued until Kathleen and others got the guts to press charges when similar assaults happened to them. I should have pressed charges long ago. But I was too scared and didn’t want to bring any attention to it. I just wanted her to leave me alone. So, I carried this around with me for a very long time. I want to let it go, and I am letting it go now. I am letting it go publicly, just like she tore me apart with her lies publicly. I don’t know what could make a person be so cruel. I don’t understand that kind of person or that kind of thinking. Anyway, thank you for listening. And again, some of you have asked me about the Cobain “case” etc, and what I think about it, etc…..I don’t really have much to say about it. It’s not my place to say anything. I have no idea what happened. All I know is that they were two very sick people at the time. Sometimes I wonder if her particular kind of sickness was just plain dark sociopaths narcissism. Or, if there is such a thing as evil. And him, just a guy that loved music and wanted a family, and loved his daughter, but maybe couldn’t take it any more.
Anyway, thank you for reading (whoever you are), and I’m sorry this is long and self indulgent or whatever. It’s weird because I’m talking about people that you guys actually are aware of. I’m not saying things like….”in the past my ex Bob was a real prick”. I am talking about two of the most known people in the world….This was also very difficult for me because it wasn’t something easily forgettable when it’s either her face or his face on mtv or a t shirt or whatever, or when your daughter is a 17 year old Nirvana fan with curious questions that any kid would have……..It takes a lot to let it go. Thank you all for giving me some place to put these feelings that have haunted me from the past. I’ve needed some kind of validation for so long. Not just a “Oh, not this fucking story again” . I know how lucky I am and how lucky I have been to have even had the chance to be friends with some of the wonderful people I’ve been friends with.

It’s also tough, and weird, and weird in that shortly after Kurt died, I met Elliott. He never judged me, and he provided a sense relief and understanding to me, and he understood. He made the loss a lot easier to take, and move on from. (Sorry, I know I am drifting here, but on top of the “Justice for K” and “Justice for E”….I get a LOT of messages from fans and people who are looking to me to provide answers, or something, and it mixes in, and is so fucking weird and sad to me)……anyway, then, he too, Elliott was gone. This was (as you can imagine), very, very hard. It was beyond comprehension. But he gave me a home for my feelings, and we shared a lot of them. He was like a little brother to me. .(you know what I mean you guys?) ugh. It’s been a lot. And hard to “just forget”, when the music is just as relevant today, and in my ears and heart as it was then. And it’s not even like I seek it out. I just hear it. Under my floor boards, my daughter’s friends . It was some of the best music ever made, and I was kind of in the middle of all of that stuff. More so of course with Elliott, but jesus, it’s been weird and hard. ….It’s hard to move away from it. Songs are different than pictures. They are invisible like ghosts, and always there. Impossible to “move on” you just have to “move different”. ugh….

And I know I am lucky with having the beautiful friends I have and of course, my daughter. I don’t want to keep reliving this. It was an incredibly difficult time in my life. When he died, we were all shattered. It was a hard time for us all.
Anyway, to finally wrap this up, I just want Frances to know that her father was one of the most amazing people I’ve ever met.

I hope we all find peace (anyone who cares about this case, or Kurt, or even Courtney), and retain a certain amount of empathy , respect, and understanding towards one another. I would say forgiveness, but that one is too hard when it comes to her….

It’s also important that no matter what our differences are on any of the matters that relate to this, that we all can try our best to be real, to be tolerant, and kind. No one should ever live in the shadow of fear or have their voice or their story squelched or be made to feel outcast, or worse, like a liar. (Whatever situation it might be)…. It’s taken 22 years for me to get up the guts to just tell it all like this. I’m not trying to draw attention to myself (I don’t care about that….I love songs, you know that)…..I am simply bringing this massive chapter to a final close and letting this ghost free-for me, and for the others who were victimized and traumatized by this person who never deserved, nor should have had that kind of power. She did not deserve a person as kind and sensitive as he was, or the love that he most likely desperately tried to give her, in the hopes of getting love back. …All he wanted was a family, and a place to belong. ..Isn’t that what we all want? ..Thank you, and again, sorry this is so long. Ugh. I know, I know. xo

Kurt Cobain’s Ex-Girlfriend: ‘F**k You Courtney Love!’

UPDATE: Mary Lou Lord has now said, “I NEVER said I thought she was responsible for his death.”

Kurt Cobain’s ex-girlfriend Mary Lou Lord wrote an open letter to Courtney Love on Facebook a few days ago, where she ripped Love and revealed that she backs Tom Grant, a Kurt Cobain murder conspiracy theorist and Courtney Love’s former private investigator.

“To Courtney and her sycophants and lemmings….

There is a very BIG difference between “Name Drop” and “clearing your name/history”….especially if this person/band/connection might be one of the things that will always haunt you by the fact this it is now still “a living, breathing, thing”…..and I will not go down without a fucking fight to set the record straight with that cunt. I honestly mean that. I HATE her, and why didn’t I say anything back then? I was too scared. And also, out of respect for Kurt’s daughter who was a child. I also had my own child, and it’s not cool to be putting anyone’s parents down in a place where a child might see it. I kept my mouth shut for Frances. I didn’t want to add more hate on top of what that poor kid must have already had to go through concerning the parent she had left. But now Frances is older, and married, and seems happy and grounded. That’s all that would have been important to him. And I respected him. No matter how much I did want to say what I wanted to say back then. It was the case for Many of us. We were scared shit of Courtney, her sycophants, and had to keep our mouths shut or start some kind of a flame war. None of that would have been good, or smart. Especially if there were any children involved.

But now, it appears that time did what it was meant to do, and Courtney love does not have the respect, trust, or power she once had ANd therefore, I am no longer fearful. But at one time, during the time I never said a word out of fear of a flame war with all her Courtney-tard followers. I just sat, silentely, and watched her lie about me (and everything and everyone else. She built her world, and manipulated other people’s lives by being the best LIAR and best actress in the world. Something that twisted and fucked with a lot of good people. …I know at this point, I really am far too old for this shit, but I know also, that even in my own small (and not famous or plastic life), I have just as much right to say NOW what I wanted to say then, but was too afraid of her, and her insanity, and in protecting my parents and loved ones. (she WAS that BAT SHIT)…..but now, I am fearless of that cunt, and I will say exactly what I thought of her back then. And, that Nirvana band, is still just as evident now as it was then. SO, any accusers of me ” name dropping, etc” you can just fuck off. I am FAR from done with this sociopathic money hungry, fame mongering , terribly dressed NO TALENT shit bag. Yes YOU Courtney Love. (having to read the lyrics to 13?) and your other bullshit?

You BELONG in a theater. You are an actress. You were never you. You are the BEST actress i have ever seen, as a matter of fact…..YOU SOLD A LIE. And you fucked up SO many lives. NEVER ever FUCK with me again you cunt, cause I will crush you. I have waited 26 years for this. And it’s time. I will crush you. You are a self serving sociopath. Congrats on all the money that you got, that was never YOURS to begin with. You are scum. And I am about to CRUSH YOU. Let the Tom games begin. I am behind him. You will never know this, and neither will you Tom, but I did talk to him, and I DO know what he told me……..FUCK YOU COURTNEY you piece of shit sociopathic lemming, leech, and ultimate mind fuck bully! Stop fucking with me in your stupid private shares. I have NO FEAR of you any longer. You are a joke. Leave ME ALONE! Havent’ we both grown up by now? Shouldn’t you be happy with your Millions and Millions of dollars that YOU never earned or deserved? Stay the fuck away from me.”

Frances Bean Cobain Releases Nirvana ‘In Utero’ Inspired Art

Frances Bean Cobain has released a new piece of art titled ‘Bone dust & pigs skin.’ The art has definite similarities with Nirvana’s In Utero artwork.

Frances Bean Cobain discussed Kurt Cobain and Nirvana in an April 2015 interview with Rolling Stone.

“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.”

She also discussed meeting Nirvana’s surviving members. “It’s very weird how genes are. Dave [Grohl], Krist [Novoselic] and Pat [Smear] came over to a house where I was living. It was the first time [the ex-Nirvana members] had been together in a long time. And they had what I call the ‘K. C. Jeebies,’ which is when they see me, they see Kurt. They look at me, and you can see they’re looking at a ghost. They were all getting the K. C. Jeebies hardcore. Dave said, ‘She is so much like Kurt.’ They were all talking amongst themselves, rehashing old stories I’d heard a million times. I was sitting in a chair, chain-smoking, looking down like this [affects total boredom]. And they went, ‘You are doing exactly what your father would have done.’

But I was glad they came over [smiles[. It was a cool experience, like having a Nirvana reunion minus one. Except for his spawn.”

Dave Navarro Responds To Kurt Cobain Murder Conspiracy Theory

Jane’s Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro responded to a fan who asked him what he thought about the Kurt Cobain murder conspiracy theory docudrama Soaked in Bleach. The film implies that Courtney Love had a role in murdering her husband Kurt Cobain, who committed suicide in April 1994. Navarro called the film ‘a well made piece of fiction.’

Courtney Love wrote a Christmas letter to her late husband Kurt Cobain on Instagram last month:

“That Christmas moment in everyones lives that you never forget, the one that makes you feel on top of the world, where the greatest gifts are the loved ones you shared that moment with. Well this is mine, I’m grateful to have ever experienced that moment. Merry Christmas Kurt, the greatest true love I’ve ever experienced in my life. You gave me the gift that makes life worth living, our incredibly talented, loving, beautiful and gifted daughter Frances Bean Cobain. Merry Christmas Bean, love mom and dad ❤”

Courtney Love wrote an emotional note to her late husband Kurt Cobain on Instagram in August as well, with a picture of herself, Kurt, and daughter Frances Bean. Love wrote, “Makes me feel so sad. Our baby is all grown up now. Jesus Kurt look at her face, what on earth were you thinking..⁉⁉ God I miss you, we all miss you #family #memories #turnbacktime #lovehim.”

Alternative Nation had the privilege of receiving and reviewing an advance copy of the upcoming Kurt Cobain album Montage of Heck: The Home Recordings album for Alternative Nation. It’s basic, low-fi, and stripped down to the bare bones. It’s raw! The album jumps straight into Cobain’s psyche. From the opening strumming and mumbles on “The Yodel Song,” to the ever-angelic, elongated, work-in-progress take of “Do Re Mi,” the album is a trip inside of Cobain’s creative process. It even features a track that easily could have been a Nirvana pop hit.

Sound collage experiments like “Montage of Kurt I” & II,” “Kurt’s Audio Collage,” “Scream,” and “Kurt’s Ambiance” provide a sonic representation of what was written in Cobain’s journals. This is where noise rock experimental influences like William S. Burroughs (Kurt had read Naked Lunch after getting it in a bookstall in London while on tour), Sonic Youth, and Scratch Acid are evident.

The spoken-word comedy bits like the satirical advertisement for the “Capitol Lake Jam Commercial,” “Rhesus Monkey,” “Sea Monkeys,” “Underground Celebritism,” as well as “Aberdeen,” and “Beans” show the foray of Kurt’s genius at work, merging music with comedy.

Instrumental pieces like “Reverb Experiment,” with its intense feedback, sounds like an end-type jam at a Nirvana gig, as well as a homage to the Melvins. “Retreat,” “Letters To Frances,” and “The Happy Guitar” show off other styles of guitar playing that Kurt didn’t show off in live performances with his band Nirvana. This is a new kind of Kurt Cobain, as you’ve never heard him before.

The album also features acoustic demos of 5 songs, that would later be released on subsequent Nirvana albums, both live, and in the studio (“Been A Son,” “Scoff,” “Frances Farmer Will Have Her Revenge On Seattle,” “Sappy,” “Something In the Way”).

Kurt Cobain Conspiracy Theorist Says Courtney Love Stole His Hair

Kurt Cobain murder conspiracy nut Richard Lee is at it again with his latest insane conspiracy theory. This time, he believes that Courtney Love stole Kurt Cobain’s hair from his body after his death. Read his bizarre press release below.

TO ALL RELEVANT EDITORS: PRESS RELEASE OF NOVEMBER 4, 2015, 10:49 PM (PACIFIC)

“THEY SHAVED HIS HEAD”
SEATTLE JOURNALIST RICHARD LEE RESPONDS TO YESTERDAY’S NEWS ON HIGH-PROFILE AUCTION OF A KURT COBAIN LOCK OF HAIR IN BEVERLY HILLS THIS SATURDAY

“To all appearances, Julien’s Auctions is in the clear as far as any direct knowledge of selling stolen property in their auction of Kurt Cobain’s lock of hair this week,” says Seattle journalist Richard Lee, who made headlines in July with his legal efforts to force release of long-suppressed police photographs of Cobain’s crime scene. “On the other hand,” he continues, “this is an industry which is not known for being overly careful about firmly establishing rights of ownership. For example, this week another auction house is selling the license plates from the limousine in which John Kennedy was killed, which is obviously a part of the crime scene itself, and not something which should ever have been casually discarded, as is claimed.

“This lock of Cobain’s hair may have been separated from his corpse’s scalp in the commission of very serious crimes, the details of which are not entirely clear, but the basics of which are known to me, and others,“ Lee says. “In February of 2003, Courtney Love briefly posted a 1,221-word narrative describing the mutilation of Kurt Cobain’s corpse and theft of his body parts by personnel of the King County Medical Examiner and the Bleitz Funeral Home. In more than a month of investigation, I established that there was an undeniable body of circumstantial evidence arguing that Courtney Love was describing criminal acts which did in some way actually occur, constituting gross misdemeanor crimes under the Revised Code of Washington.”

Lee says, “The most likely source for the hair at auction this Saturday is that it came from the criminal act of shearing Cobain’s head in what Courtney Love describes as a videotaped series of crimes at the funeral home. When I first read the words in her narrative, ‘they shaved his head,’ the immediate thought I had was that this would comprise a bumper crop of hundreds of thousands of articles of Cobain’s actual body, which could be skillfully marketed to produce many millions in revenues. Just think in terms of something like a $100 CD box set that contains a section of hair, and you see the potential for perhaps the most profitable record release ever. Composers’ hair relics have been on the market for centuries, and even today, eBay has an exception allowing for hair to be sold from celebrities, dead or alive.” According to this week’s reports, Courtney Love supplied the hair to a doll maker after Cobain’s death.

“How or why the horrific crimes to Cobain’s corpse came about has a great deal to do with Courtney Love, who has never described the chain of possession or recovery of the hair stolen at the funeral home,” Lee says. “The obvious motive for such a crime is to have the hair for its commercial value, and who would be in the best position to exploit its potential other than Courtney Love? And yet, imagine the suspicion that would fall upon her if Courtney Love had shown up with shears in hand, ready to harvest the golden locks herself? It is very convenient for her that the deed was done by others, and from there she might demand its return. Of course, she has never clarified her original narrative of the crimes, or described any efforts to recover Cobain’s stolen body parts.”

Lee concludes, “It should be noted that despite my considerable efforts to pressure an investigation in 2003, nothing was ever initiated by authorities, and in fact the person who should have ordered an investigation into the county personnel misconduct, then King County Executive Ron Sims, was recently a key member of the panel that recommended Seattle’s new police chief, who to all appearances intends to continue the long and heinous practice of covering-up evidence in the Cobain murder.

“In case you have a blunted sense of irony, please notice that in my ongoing lawsuit to win release of the crime scene photos, the City of Seattle is firmly partnered-up with Courtney Love to keep the public from knowing the truth, with her sworn declaration as an integral part of their legal argument. When has this ever happened before, involving a party suspected by millions of people of being involved in a murder?”

Courtney Love Was Asked To Appear In Kurt Cobain Murder Conspiracy Film

Soaked in Bleach director Benjamin Statler recently told TheMusic.com.au that he asked Courtney Love to appear in his Kurt Cobain murder conspiracy docudrama.

When asked whether there was anyone Statler contacted that he would’ve liked to feature in Soaked In Bleak, but who refused, he laughingly admits, “Courtney Love… I invited her. She didn’t respond, actually. Well, she didn’t respond until her attorney sent me cease and desist letters in 2014 after I released the first trailer.” When Soaked In Bleach was being released, Love also sent cease and desist letters to the distributors and then “to every theatre that showed the movie”. “So I haven’t heard anything since and there was never follow-up on any of those threats,” Statler continues. “And same with the previous 20 years… From the time he first went public, anybody that gave Tom a platform — a radio show et cetera — every time that platform would get threatened by her cadre of attorneys, but never once did they follow through. And he promised them that they won’t, because he knows that they know that if they follow through and sue something that Tom Grant is party to he gets to put Courtney on the stand to post her in court. And that’s just as powerful as reopening the case. And that’s why he wants her to sue him.”

Courtney Love Claims Nine Inch Nails Song Is About Her

Courtney Love discussed Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominee Nine Inch Nails and Fleetwood Mac in a new Los Angeles Times article discussing her new play.

The Downward Spiral was big for us both,” she said, referring to the album by Reznor’s band Nine Inch Nails. Then she turned to playwright/composer Todd Almond. “There’s one song about me. Very mean. I’ll tell you about it later.”

Love called her playwright partner Todd Almond more talented than Reznor earlier this year in an interview with Billboard. “I was listening to Todd play the other day, and I remembered when I used to date Trent Reznor, who is very talented and has his own thing, but Todd’s is better. Me and Trent would fuck around at the old Sunset Marquis [in Hollywood]. There was a grand piano — he would play and I would chanteuse it out. How fabulous that I got someone better than Trent!”

Love also showed Almond her favorite performance of all time on YouTube – Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham singing “The Chain” on a 1982 Fleetwood Mac tour. Love said she enjoyed the fact that the band hated each other.

“They’re the biggest band in the world, they hate each other — it’s perfection.”

Despite calling Trent Reznor ‘mean,’ Love claimed she has grown up.

“I’m a mature woman who’s no longer 28 years old. I don’t need all the attention all the time. I’ve had all the attention all the time — I know what that feels like. And it’s kind of boring.”

Billy Corgan & Courtney Love Statues Unveiled

One day, our modern civilization will be a distant memory, and all that will remain will be our cultural footprints in art & culture. The question must be put forth: which songwriters in the pantheon of modern music will survive the test of time and emerge as historical figures such as Beethoven and Mozart?

Matt Clark, an Oahu-based sculptor behind RAUXSTARS, seeks to strike this message across by crafting intricate busts of some of the most notable figures in popular music over the past few decades. Clark tells Alternative Nation, “The series was created to celebrate some of our most talented artists.  It was created to help people visualize the parallels between music’s masters of the past and the artists of today.  Rock musicians’ maximum impact (like their pre-recorded predecessors) won’t be fully realized until many decades from now.”

You can check out his busts of Alternative Nation regulars Courtney Love and Billy Corgan below.

Corgan is, of course, frontman of The Smashing Pumpkins, and a vocal proponent of innovation in the rock music scene. According to Clark, “Billy Corgan was chosen because he embodied 90’s alternative and pushed it to its ragged edge with albums including the two disc Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. He has proven to be talented with music ranging from goth, alternative, electronica and hard rock. He’s still touring today.”

A bit more of an unconventional choice is Courtney Love, frontwoman of Hole. Many would probably see her former husband, Kurt Cobain, as more of a timeless figure for his trailblazing yet short career with Nirvana, though according to Clark: “Choosing Courtney Love was easy. She’s arguably the most courageous and resilient artist in the music industry. She also dated and inspired Billy Corgan and, of course, married and inspired Kurt Cobain. She remains an outstanding artist, creative firebrand and enigma. We’ll never truly know everything about Courtney Love…and that’s what’s at the core of her mystique. She has remained relevant in pop culture for over 20 years. On a personal note: reading her biography got me on a plane off the mainland.”

You can check out several other busts, including Jimi Hendrix and David Bowie, on Clark’s official Tumblr profile.

Courtney Love Rips Frances Bean Cobain For Wedding Snub

Frances Bean Cobain married longtime boyfriend (and Kurt Cobain lookalike) Isaiah Silva in a secret wedding last week, and she didn’t invite her mother Courtney Love, who didn’t find out about the marriage until she got a phone call. Love appeared to take a shot at her daughter for snubbing her on Instagram, saying that she was spending her time last week with model James Norley, which was worth ‘flaking on anything for’ and canceling all of her appointments. She also hashtagged ‘Jealous much?’

Love wrote, “If you think I’m sorry for being a no-show at any important events this week, think again. I was with @jamesnorley ❤ #candyface #worthflakingonanythingfor #heaven #worthit #slay #bae #cancelallmyappointments #donthate #stud #jealousmuch ? Bwahaa xc”

Frances Bean Cobain recently married her longtime boyfriend Isaiah Silva, the frontman of alternative rock band The Eeries. The wedding was secret and very intimate, and Cobain did not invite her mother Courtney Love. The Daily Mirror reports that Love was ‘sad’ she wasn’t invited, and was only told after the fact on the phone by her daughter.

A source tells The Daily Mirror Mirror: “Frances is totally loved up with Isaiah, but she’s never been one to broadcast it to the world.”

“She only invited a close circle of friends to the party, and then phoned her mum afterwards to tell her the good news.”

“Courtney and Frances have had a strained relationship over the years, but after tons of fallouts they actually get on quite well now. Courtney is sad she wasn’t there but she totally understands that Frances is her own person and she’s happy to let her do her own thing. Plus, Isaiah is a really nice guy.”

Frances Bean Cobain discussed Kurt Cobain and Nirvana in an interview with Rolling Stone earlier this year.

“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.”

She also discussed meeting Nirvana’s surviving members. “It’s very weird how genes are. Dave [Grohl], Krist [Novoselic] and Pat [Smear] came over to a house where I was living. It was the first time [the ex-Nirvana members] had been together in a long time. And they had what I call the ‘K. C. Jeebies,’ which is when they see me, they see Kurt. They look at me, and you can see they’re looking at a ghost. They were all getting the K. C. Jeebies hardcore. Dave said, ‘She is so much like Kurt.’ They were all talking amongst themselves, rehashing old stories I’d heard a million times. I was sitting in a chair, chain-smoking, looking down like this [affects total boredom]. And they went, ‘You are doing exactly what your father would have done.’

But I was glad they came over [smiles[. It was a cool experience, like having a Nirvana reunion minus one. Except for his spawn.”

Courtney Love Shouted To Police: ‘Kurt Cobain Has A Gun! He’s Gonna Kill Himself!’

Kurt Cobain murder conspiracy theorist Tom Grant has a new article up on his website featuring quotes from an incident report filed by Officer Everett Edwards on March 18, 1994 about the day Courtney Love called police because Kurt Cobain locked himself in a room and she believed he was suicidal.

The following is from the police report about the incident written by Officer Everett Edwards, the first patrol officer to appear on the scene that day:

I arrived and contacted Courtney Love. Ms. Love stated that Cobain, Kurt had locked himself in a room and that he was going to kill himself. She also stated that he had a gun in the room.”

In an interview with the author, Everett Edwards (now Detective Edwards) told me that when he arrived at the house, Courtney Love was standing on the front porch screaming wildly: “He locked himself in a room! He’s gotta gun! He’s gonna fucking kill himself!”

Edwards told me that he then informed Love that he would have to wait for backup to arrive before he could enter the house.

“Well, if you’re not gonna do anything, then just get the F*** out of here!” Love shouted.

But other units arrived within minutes. Next, several officers entered the house through the front door while Officer Edwards and his partner headed for the backdoor.

Now here’s where it gets interesting.

According to articles published in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and the Associated Press on April 9th, the day after Kurt’s body was discovered, Seattle Police officers located Cobain in a locked room inside the house and then forcibly “coaxed” him from the room. Many other media outlets subsequently repeated this story, but it turns out to be completely untrue.

According to Detective Everett Edwards, the reality is that Kurt Cobain was not inside the house at all when the police arrived that day. Instead, when Edwards and his partner attempted to enter the house through the backdoor, they discovered an unarmed Kurt Cobain sheepishly standing in the backyard with his hands in his pockets. Moreover, Cobain did not appear suicidal; rather, he seemed deeply embarrassed by the situation.

“He just really wanted to get out of there,” said Edwards (who had then, incidentally, never heard of Kurt Cobain).

Next, Officer Edwards asked Kurt Cobain to accompany him to his patrol car to discuss the situation. Cobain agreed and calmly walked down the driveway and sat in the backseat.

“He was just a very, very nice guy,” said Edwards who sat beside Cobain and spoke to him at length.

Cobain told Edwards that he wasn’t suicidal, and explained that he simply locked himself in a room after an argument with Courtney. He emphatically denied that he ever said that he wanted to hurt himself. Edwards also told me that Cobain did not appear to be under the influence of any drugs whatsoever.

In due course, when the other officers interviewed Courtney Love inside the house, she actually admitted to them that she made the entire story up. According to the police report:

“After further interviewing Ms. Love, she stated that she did not see him with a gun, and he did not say he was going to kill himself. However, when he locked himself in the room, would not open the door, and knowing that he had access to guns, she contacted 911 for his safety and wellbeing.”

Cobain committed suicide with a shotgun blast to the head in his Seattle greenhouse on April 5, 1994.

Frances Bean Cobain had some adorable Twitter interactions with former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way and her mother Courtney Love to mark her 22nd birthday. Courtney sent Frances a heartfelt message: “Happy birthday my sweetest baby girl, I’m so proud of you.” Frances responded, “Thanks for letting me utilize your human form to act as my alien incubation pod for 9 months. Love you mum XX.” Love also tweeted a photo of a baby Frances with her and Kurt Cobain, saying she misses Kurt.

Love later wrote an emotional note to her late husband Kurt on Instagram, with a picture of herself, Kurt, and daughter Frances Bean. Love wrote, “Makes me feel so sad. Our baby is all grown up now. Jesus Kurt look at her face, what on earth were you thinking..⁉⁉ God I miss you, we all miss you #family #memories #turnbacktime #lovehim.”

Courtney Love Speaks To Kurt Cobain’s Ghost

Courtney Love wrote an emotional note to her late husband Kurt Cobain on Instagram over the weekend, with a picture of herself, Kurt, and daughter Frances Bean. Love wrote, “Makes me feel so sad. Our baby is all grown up now. Jesus Kurt look at her face, what on earth were you thinking..⁉⁉ God I miss you, we all miss you #family #memories #turnbacktime #lovehim.”

While Love wrote an Instagram note, former Hole guitarist Eric Erlandson published a book titled Letters to Kurt in 2012. Erlandson wrote in the book, “The paper comes in plastic, a little thinner each week, a few more ads. Pretty soon there’ll be no news. We’ll be underwhelmed, over-bored & all storied out. The clouds ready to burst with our blue-skinned memories. Everyone with a blog, a website, an online store, dedicated server & two-dimensional quick-response-coded documentary made about their precious life. Our brains at maximum capacity, running optimization programs to recover what’s left of our sanity. Still, we hope. We go see the latest blockbuster, buy the latest iPhone, zone out in front of our schizo-screens drinking jugs of moonshine corn syrup with our latent mutant meals. Facebook keeps us chained to our pasts, our posts, screwed in our seats… Scarecrows surrounded by night soil & spirits. Your acid shield may protect you from outside threat, but it’ll never protect you from yourself.”

Courtney Love & Gerard Way’s Adorable Birthday Messages For Frances Bean Cobain

Frances Bean Cobain celebrated her 23rd birthday earlier this week, and she had some adorable Twitter interactions with former My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way and her mother Courtney Love to mark the occasion. Courtney sent Frances a heartfelt message: “Happy birthday my sweetest baby girl, I’m so proud of you.” Frances responded, “Thanks for letting me utilize your human form to act as my alien incubation pod for 9 months. Love you mum XX.” Love also tweeted a photo of a baby Frances with her and Kurt Cobain, saying she misses Kurt. See the tweets below!

Director Brett Morgen discussed Frances Bean Cobain and Kurt Cobain’s mother Wendy O’Connor’s feelings on the drug use depicted in the new documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck in a new Deadline interview.

“When Kurt’s mother voiced some concerns about the way she was depicted, and the way Kurt was seen in the latter stages of his life, it was Frances who called and said, ‘Mom, Grandma, this is not your film. This is Kurt’s film, and how you experience things is quite different than the way Kurt experienced things.’ I think the point was if we allow our mothers to dictate the content of our biographies they would be pretty nice. I mean of course the mother doesn’t want to show her child in any light that’s less than favorable, but it was Frances’s desire to not hide the truth, and I think that both Frances and I arrived at the same point, which was we were not trying to tear Kurt or put Kurt down, nor were we trying to put him on a pedestal. We were simply trying to look him in the eye, to empathize, to find a point of entry in which we can understand how he experienced life.”

Morgen also discussed Frances’ feelings on her father after watching the film.

“This is considered an authorized documentary, and by that it suggests that we received access to the primary source material, but as you and I both know, ‘authorized’ has a negative connotation. It generally means watered-down or censored. We live in an era in which brands and the state have a tremendous monetary value, and so there is a great need by the rights-holders to protect that investment. At our first meeting, after we shook hands, I sat down at a table with Frances and before I could pitch her the film I wanted to make, she proceeded to tell me that she thought that whatever film was constructed it should lean heavily on Kurt’s art, and if nothing else, it needed to be honest. What she went on to say is that during her travels through life, people are constantly coming up to her talking about Kurt as if he was some sort of mythical character, like a unicorn or a Santa Claus, and she said, ‘You know, the best way we can pay tribute to Kurt is to create a film that is honest. That is what Kurt was about, honesty and integrity, and so don’t shy from the truth.’ Upon seeing the film for the first time, Frances looked at me and said, ‘do not touch a frame.’ You know, before she said that, she said, ‘Thank you for giving me a couple hours with my father that I never thought I would have.'”

Courtney Love Suspected Kurt Cobain Didn’t Commit Suicide, Sought Out Layne Staley

In David de Sola’s new book Alice In Chains: The Untold Story, Layne Staley’s stepfather Jim Elmer reveals that Courtney Love suspected that Kurt Cobain may not have committed suicide, and sought out Layne Staley a few weeks after Cobain’s 1994 death to find out what may have happened in the final few days of his life due to a mutual drug connection. Love ended up calling Elmer when trying to track down Staley. Love intimated to him that she ‘was not happy with the outcome that it was a suicide. She thought there was more to it than that.’

Layne Staley’s friend Morgen Gallagher discussed living with the legendary Alice In Chains frontman during a recent interview with Alternative Nation.

“I met Layne in the summer of 1986 at a house party in Issaquah, and we hit it off immediately. I think it was around august that I ended up moving in with him and Mike Mitchelll, the then the bass player for Layne’s band Sleze. Layne had the closet, Mike had the dining room, and I had the couch/living room. It was a falling apart house in the University District of Seattle on 7th, which they had divided it into student apartments. Me and Layne would get drunk and race big wheels on the I5 express way off ramp back to our house.

I lived there with Layne about 3 or 4 months I think. They were getting ready to shoot a movie “Father Rock,” it was being done by a local director Thadius Bird (I think). Layne and Mike were getting on each others nerves more and more, so Layne asked me to join the band and take Mike’s place in the movie. So we moved out of Mike’s place and into Maryanne Confiff’s even smaller studio apartment for about 6 months, then finally into the Music Bank for about 2 or 3 months. I was then fired and Johnny Bacolas took my space.”
