About a girl.

Leave Courtney Love alone. She looks happy, and Frances Bean is utterly adorable. Oh! They were in the audience at the "American Idol" finale. How strange to think of Kurt Cobain's daughter as an "American Idol" fan. Wonder if she was for Bo or Carrie. Here's another picture. Aw!

I'm glad to see Courtney is doing better. She might have had some personal problems in the past, but she is one amazing musician.

I've seen Hole in concerts a few times, and of about a hundred concerts I've been two, she's easily one of the top five performers I've seen.

I saw Hole in concert here in Madison. Even though Love freaked out, because the sound system was awful -- "We're a bar band tonight" -- they were still great. And she was a terrific actress in that movie about Larry Flynt.

No comment, as I read LOVE AND DEATH regarding the life and death of Kurt Cobain. But Ms. Bean sure is adorable! I bet she was also heartbroken about Constantine....

OMG--i can't believe Frances Bean is so grown up already. Time moves waaay too fast...

Here's a large picture of the two of them. You can really see that she has her dad's beautiful eyes.

Courtney needs to have her implants taken out.

I always used to say that Courtney was the girl next door -- but then I'm from Detroit...

Uh, I'm from Portland, Oregon, where some of us knew Courtney Love very well. So stop the gushing, please. It's unseemly.

She used to hang around the Satyricon Club as an obnoxious, fat, pushy groupie. I'm not going to repeat a bunch of horrible anecdotes, 'cause life is too short, but she was well-known as an asshole a long time before she attached herself to poor Kurt.

If you're curious, try to find a copy of Melissa Rossi's unauthorized biography, which barely scratches the surface. (Melissa is from Portland, a serious reporter who now works as a journalist in Barcelona.)

I hate to gainsay Ms. Althouse at any time, but its barely possible Love is not the ideal parent of a 12 year old girl. I'm just saying.

Hi Ann. re who Frances Bean rooted for... I saw Entertainment Tonight, and Frances said she was rooting for Bo because "he's a rocker".

Ann Althouse said...

Doc, and others: I'm aware of the problems, but all I'm saying is that she looks happy there, Francis looks happy, they are doing something wholesome, and I wish them well. Love won custody of the child back, last January, and presumably she's really done something positive for herself. She doesn't need people telling her she got fat or rubbing the past in her face all the time.

Thanks for the link to the larger picture, which is much more flattering. Much as I like Go Fug Yourself (linked in the original post), I think it's mean to pick the most unflattering angle on a person who's gained a lot of weight. GFY does a good job of being just mean enough to people, actually. Even on this one. But still... I'm glad to see the nicer picture.

I've always thought a lot of Courtney's antics were an act, as I've written on this blog before: here.

miklos rosza:

Who said I was gushing?

and since when did being an asshole stop anyone from being a good rock star?

since we're latching on to our loco locals, I guess I'm stuck with Iggy.

Yeah, he's been a model citizen hasn't he?

henny said...

I'd love to know what the legals think about WHO KILLED KURT KOBAIN. Did she?

Maria said...

oh is she is the daughter of kurt cobaine? she is so beautiful like her father Kurt always wear Mens Suits for his performance.
