The “Nevermind” Baby’s Child Pornography Lawsuit Against Nirvana May Be Dismissed Because He Missed A Filing Deadline
Spencer Elden, the man who thinks anybody who had a poster of Nirvana’s Nevermind album hanging over their bed in the 90s is a sexual deviant, has had some bad news regarding his child pornography case against the band because he failed to respond in a timely manner to a motion requesting the suit be tossed out. Last summer, Spencer filed a lawsuit against members Nirvana and others including Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic as well as Kurt Cobain’s estate and therefore Courtney Love, executive of said estate. Spencer was seeking $150,000 from each of the 17 named defendants claiming his little baby pee-pee being used to sell records was tantamount to sex trafficking and child pornography. USA Today reports that the baby who appears naked, reaching for a dollar bill on the iconic album cover had until December 30, 2021 to respond to a motion to dismiss filed by the defendants, but I guess he must have overslept. It’s hard keeping a regular schedule when your job title is Disgruntled Baby Penis Model.
Open Post: Hosted By Kid Cudi’s Floral Dress Tribute To Kurt Cobain On “Saturday Night Live”
During his performance of Sad People on Saturday Night Live last night, Kid Cudi wore a pretty little floral dress and some may have thought that he was paying tribute to every girl named Becca who wore a Jessica McClintock dress like that with jellies to an Easter party in the 80s. But Kid Cudi was actually paying tribute to Kurt Cobain and it wasn’t his only tribute of the night.
Open Post: Hosted By Kurt Cobain’s $334,000 Cardigan
I’ve got some ratty old vintage cardigans hanging in my closet, and if I had to guess, I’d assume they’re worth approximately $0. I came to that highly-accurate estimate based on the fact that I was never the lead singer of a legendary 90s grunge band, and also because no one wants to buy a cardigan that smells like my armpits. But a musty-old cardigan that once belonged to Kurt Cobain is clearly worth more than $0.
The Fight Over Kurt Cobain’s Guitar Has Gotten Messier
I’m sure you’re absolutely shocked that a situation involving semi-professional disaster Courtney Love has gotten messy. But if you can believe it, she’s not even the messiest part of this story; that honor goes to the one and only Sam Lutfi.
Last week it was reported that Frances Bean was fighting with her soon-to-be ex-husband Isaiah Silva over a guitar that was used by Kurt Cobain during Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged performance. Isaiah claims the guitar – which is estimated to be worth several million dollars – was a wedding gift from Frances to him. Frances claims she never gave it to him as a gift, and she wants it back. A judge will ultimately decide who gets the guitar, but Courtney Love’s good friend Sam Lutfi is doing everything he can to fix it in Frances’ favor.
Frances Bean Cobain Isn’t Really Into Nirvana
Most of us go through that phase where are parents are kind of dorky and geeky no matter who they are. I mean, if Joan Collins was my mother, I probably wouldn’t like Dynasty and I wouldn’t think she’s that glamorous. What am I saying? That is a one hundred percent lie and I should punch my fingers for even typing those words. I’d still worship her and would probably purposefully piss her off just so she could slap me down Alexis-style.
But the 22-year-old spawn of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love doesn’t feel that way about Nirvana. While talking to David Fricke of Rolling Stone (which she used to intern for) about Montage of Heck, the HBO documentary about the life of Kurt Cobain, Frances Bean Cobain said that grunge doesn’t really do it for her ears and so she’s not really a Nirvana fan. Frances named a few bands she’s into and no, she didn’t make Kurt Cobain’s ashes turn to stone by saying she likes One Direction or some shit.
“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.”
David Fricke asked Frances Bean if she felt awkward during her teenage years because she wasn’t really into her dad’s music and she said she would’ve felt awkward if she did have Nirvana posters on her wall.
No. I would have felt more awkward if I’d been a fan. I was around 15 when I realized he was inescapable. Even if I was in a car and had the radio on, there’s my dad. He’s larger than life. and our culture is obsessed with dead musicians. We love to put them on a pedestal. If Kurt had just been another guy who abandoned his family in the most awful way possible . . . But he wasn’t. He inspired people to put him on a pedestal, to become St. Kurt. He became even bigger after he died than he was when he was alive. You don’t think it could have gotten any bigger. But it did.
Makes complete sense to me, but back to Oasis… Now Frances Bean has gone and done it! Liam Gallagher’s swollen, pus-filled, throbbing ego is already the size of Cisco Adler’s nutsack and it’s going to grow at least five hundred times its size when he finds out that Kurt Cobain’s daughter likes Oasis more than Nirvana. According to this extremely accurate (I’m sure) Yahoo! Answer, if the planet’s land was divided up equally among every living human, we’d each get around 6 acres. But since Liam Gallagher’s ego will soon take up half of the planet, we’d be lucky to get 3 acres each. Thanks, Frances Bean!
Kurt Cobain Called Courtney Love A “Bitch With Zits” In A Letter
The Seattle PD just keeps on releasing all kinds of stuff they found at the scene of Kurt Cobain’s suicide 20 years ago. They’ve released picture after picture after picture and today, at the request of CBS News (via HuffPo), they released a handwritten letter police found in Kurt’s wallet. In the letter that was supposedly written by Kurt, he calls Courtney a “bitch with zits” and a money siphoner. Somewhere, a marketing executive for Proactiv is pitching a “bitch with zits” ad campaign starring Courtney Love.
The note, which is cut off in case you couldn’t tell, reads:
“Do you Kurt Cobain take Courtney Michelle Love to be your lawfully shredded wife. Even when she’s a bitch with zits and siphoning all yr money for doping and whoring.”
Detective Mike Ciesynski of the Seattle PD said that they held onto the note because of all the conspiracy theories (read: the “Cracked Out Courtney Killed Kurt For That Nirvana Money” theories) out there. Billboard points out that this note is totally different than Kurt’s supposed suicide note where he callsCrazy Courtney a “goddess of a wife who sweats ambition and empathy.” The Kurt Cobain Death Truthers will be busy as all hell this week comparing this letter to the suicide letter to see if the handwriting matches. May the mystery-solving skills of Detective La Toya be with them.
Yes, Courtney Love is a bitch. Yes, Courtney Love has a zits. And yes, I’m sure Courtney Love has siphoned money for drugs, but that letter reads like a fucked-up flirty love note to me. Those words were probably their actual vows. The only thing I learned from this letter is that Courtney Love spent money on whores. I thought it was the other way around. I thought Courtney Love was the one who sucked dick for Diet Cokes.
