Why didn't we think of this? When Diffuser.fm unveiled our picks for Rockers We'd Like To See As 'The Voice' Mentors last year, Courtney Love was nowhere to be seen. But in retrospect, the walking drama magnet is the perfect choice to appear as a personality on a reality TV singing competition, and apparently, she's in talks to do just that.
Before yesterday's so-called Nirvana reunion with Paul McCartney at the 12-12-12 Hurricane Sandy Concert in New York, Courtney Love told TMZ that she was "not amused" by McCartney's involvement, adding that "if John were alive it would be cool." She later commented about the event on the Facebook page for author Mark Yarm’s book 'Everybody Loves This Town: An Oral History of Grunge,' posting several notes in her typically rambling and borderline incoherent style. She later returned to the page to respond to some who had commented on her post.
Apparently, Courtney Love will not be involved in the production of the forthcoming Kurt Cobain documentary that the late Nirvana singer's widow last week announced is being planned for release in 2014. Love revealed that she has authorized the making of the as-yet-untitled documentary, which will be helmed by filmmaker Brett Morgen, but it now seems that that will be the extent of Love's involvement.
As with many controversies in Courtney Love's life, this one started with an indecipherable blog post. In a long rant that surfaced in 2008, Kurt Cobain's widow accused Ryan Adams of looting $858,000 from her daughter Frances Bean's trust fund to finance his 2003 album, 'Rock n Roll,' which she called “one of the worst records i can think of in rock and roll history." She then followed it over the course of the next year with additional disses against the singer and his wife, Mandy Moore.
Just a few days after Lana Del Rey turned in a cover of Nirvana’s ‘Heart-Shaped Box’ during a concert in Sydney, Australia (check it out here), Courtney Love took to Twitter to point out something to LDR that neither the she nor the rest of the general public reading Love's tweets would really care to hear: that ‘Heart-Shaped Box’ is about Courtney Love’s vagina.
