In the aftermath of Courtney Love‘s onstage meltdown/freakout/cuntery last weekend, where she accused Dave Grohl of stealing from Kurt Cobain’s daughter (among other damnations), the Hole frontwoman didn’t show any signs of regret. Instead, as revealed yesterday in an interview to MTV Brasil, she went deeper into explaining her speech, extended it to Krist Novoselic, and possibly admitted to committing a felony.
Following her disastrous SWU Festival concert last Sunday, Courtney was interviewed backstage, as seen in the video below – which we’ll admit to having watched at least a couple of times before getting a proper sense of what the hell she was saying. She claims that Dave Grohl recently bought an Aston Martin, and Krist Novoselic bought a Lexus, using a “company credit card” under the Nirvana name. She also repeated as much on our own Johnny Firecloud’s piece on CraveOnline in the comments section, under the name Rose ofSharon (“I calld maex said they died in a plane crash and whoa wo w shocker they have inc cards”).
How would she get this information? In her own words, Ms. Love admits to having consulted American Express via telephone, saying that both Dave and Krist “died in a horrible plane crash,” in hopes that the call-center attendant was a Nirvana fan (“If it’s a fan, at a bank or whatever, I’ll get information”). We’re taking this information with a grain of salt, but apparently, her despicable tactic worked, and the attendant was moved enough to give her the information that led to the discovery of the two automobile purchases. Watch the interview below, by skipping to the 13:40 mark:
It shouldn’t be surprising to hear any of that crazy-talk, but it’s saddening nonetheless. How any of it means that Dave and Krist are “stealing” from Kurt’s family remains a mystery to us. The only understandable part of this is that Courtney seems rather dissatisfied with whatever deal was arranged in court, regarding the ownership of the Nirvana name. But is it really her responsibility to make such claims, and is this the appropriate manner to do so? Lying about the death of two people probably won’t do her any favors in court. And does she expect to establish some kind of legitimacy by stating that “Dave and Krist didn’t write anything in Nirvana”?
After all, they merely co-wrote the one song that changed the face of mainstream music, for beginners.
