Courtney Selling Kurt’s Stuff – ALL OF IT

As if selling licensing of Kurt’s songs for video game ads or shitty TV shows weren’t enough, Courtney Love now plans to sell off nearly all of his remaining possessions under her control. I guess the massive money dead celebrity auctions is taking in these days is just too much to pass up.

Would selling off all her father’s keepsakes ultimately rob daughter Francis Bean of her birthright? “My daughter doesn’t need to inherit a giant hefty bag full of flannel fucking shirts,” said Love. “A sweater, a guitar and the lyrics to ‘(Smells Like) Teen Spirit’ — that’s what my daughter gets. And the rest of it we’ll just fucking sell.”

And Courtney drops further in the collective eyes of Nirvana fans…

Question of the Day: When Courtney dies, what are the three things you think Bean should hold onto?

  1. Man, this leaves open the door for a lot of truly tasteless answers, but let’s see if I can take the high road. Frances Bean should make sure to keep:

    1) the shirt Kurt wore in the “Smells Like Teen Spirit” video (assuming it isn’t part of the box lot to be sold),

    2) her father’s favorite guitar (see above parenthetical), and

    3) one of her mom’s baby-doll dresses, circa Miss World. Say what you will about all of Courtney’s horrible doings towards both herself and to Kurt’s legacy as a rock-n-roll-widow, but Hole had a significant pop culture impact back in the day.

    Hmm, maybe I’m feeling generous to Kurt n Courtney today; tomorrow’s answer might not be so even-tempered…

  2. Murph, Courtney already said that all Bean gets to keep of Kurt’s is “A sweater, a guitar and the lyrics to ‘(Smells Like) Teen Spirit’— that’s what my daughter gets. And the rest of it we’ll just fucking sell.”

    There’s absolutely no reason to ever give Ms. Love the benefit of the high road. Unleash the tastelessness!

  3. This is true what you say, Mr. Jake. That said, Frances Bean should make sure to save:

    a) the very first matching-spoon-and-hypodermic that Kurt & Courtney shared in a romantic show that only two degenerate junkies can offer the world,

    b) the pharmaceutical bottle from the OD that will eventually kill Courtney, and…

    Well, I’ll refrain from any shotgun or shotgun shell cracks, directed at Kurt for choosing to not be a father to Frances, courtesy of his early checkout.

  4. I could be wrong but I think I read somewhere that Kurt’s sweater from the “Teen Spirit” video is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

  5. As macabre as this is to consider, I think that kid is going to be so fucked up when she grows up that it’s rather likely that her mom will out-live her.

  6. I don’t think so. The fact that she’s still around proves that she’s a survivor. The fewer ties she has to the past (and her parents legacy), the better.

    (I thought I saw Kurt’s sweater from the “Teen Spirit” video when I visited the EMP in Seattle a couple of years ago.)

  7. Oh wait, my bad. I just Googled and it was a v-neck sweater (not the t-shirt he wore in the video)

  8. You know, she’s really not that bad. Not even as a parent. I mean, compare her to Mick Jagger, who’s left kids all over the world, screwing over their mothers in the process. Has he EVER been involved in his kids’ lives at all? Does anybody get down on him for being a shitty parent? Frances Bean looks pretty well turned out to me, and it’s all to Courtney’s credit. As for Kurt’s stuff, it’s just stuff, and she’s absolutely right to sell it and use the money for charity. Kurt loved her, there’s no doubt about that. If you love Kurt, you should have some respect for the woman he loved.

  9. “If you love Kurt, you should have some respect for the woman he loved.”

    Only when she starts respecting herself, her child, and the legacy of her late husband.

  10. You know, regardless if the person who is dead is Real Famous, there comes a point where holding on to their stuff forever and ever is just macabre, end of story. Life has to move on.

    And has anyone stopped to consider whether Frances only wanted three things?

  11. Courtney should be assasinated in retaliation to the murder of Kurt Cobain. Fuck what the corporate media spins the story out to be, look at the facts. Kurt wasn’t sad when he died. He was happier than he had been in years, he was cancelling the LOLLAPALOZA tour which would lose millions and courtney didnt like that. He had changed his will to disinclude courtney and leave her none of his money. She didnt like that and tried to have him killed. El Duce took a lie detector test and passed with 100% CERTAINTY that courtney love offered him $50,000 to murder kurt. After he takes the test, he is mysteriously hit by a train. All I’m saying is look at the facts on the case before you idolize that bitch.

    1)Courtneys Ashes

    2)Kurts Money

    3)An apology

  12. Kevin, you said it perfectly…it’s nice to see someone on this list of responses looks at facts instead of media spun bullshit.
