Kurt Cobain's widow spoke about the experience of watching the new documentary 'Montage of Heck', currently on a limited theatrical release before its TV premiere next month.
Courtney Love has described watching the new documentary ‘Cobain: Montage of Heck’ with her daughter Frances as a “very healing” experience.
Love was left widowed with an infant daughter after Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain committed suicide in 1994. In an interview with V Magazine, the Hole singer said “To see [the movie] in that room with my daughter was very cathartic and I was very happy to spend a little time with him and to find out, to see things and hear audio, and see into his heart.”
Courtney Love spoke about the new documentary 'Cobain: Montage of Heck'
Kurt Cobain's daughter, now 22, is a co-executive producer of the forthcoming documentary 'Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck', and spoke about the film and her father to Rolling Stone.
Ahead of the release of the highly anticipated documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, about the Nirvana frontman, Cobain’s daughter Frances Bean has spoken to Rolling Stone magazine about her personal feelings of growing up and being aware of her father’s legend.
Born in 1992, Frances is the only daughter of Cobain and Hole singer Courtney Love. Now 22 years old and a visual artist, she was named as one of the executive producers of the Brett Morgen-directed documentary late last year.
Frances Bean Cobain co-executive produced the new 'Montage of Heck' documentary
In a new clip from the forthcoming official Kurt Cobain documentary, we discover the birth of grunge pioneers Nirvana; featuring a rare early performance clip, a set of black and white animated sketches seemingly entitled 'The Reaganites' and various notepad scribbles featuring words and phrases that were ultimately replaced by the band name 'Nirvana', including The Mandibles, Window Pain, Seringe, Godchild and Novacain. The film uses art and previously unseen footage and photos to document the rise to fame of Kurt Cobain, his struggles with addiction and his tragic suicide at the age of just 27.
Home movies of the Nirvana legend are featured in this amazing movie.
Some of Kurt Cobain's happiest moments are depicted in the new trailer for the first authorised documentary of his life 'Cobain: Montage Of Heck'; a collection of home movies and never before seen footage directed by Brett Morgen and executively produced by Frances Bean.
Kurt Cobain's life story comes to life in 'Montage of Heck'
While his early life saw the late Kurt Cobain as a happy-go-lucky child with a profound creative talent, the years following his parents' divorce were nothing short of tempestuous for the young musician. Though still hungry for music, songwriting and drawing, Cobain developed struggles with anger and rejection throughout his teenage years, setting him up for a success that would ultimately bring about his downfall. And while it seemed his astonishing success with grunge pioneers Nirvana in the 90s was a high point in his life, not to mention his relationship with Courtney Love and the birth of their daughter Frances, it only led to a tragic end.
Madonna has weighed in on the Dolce and Gabbana IVF controversy. Which other celebrities have offered their views?
Madonna has offered her opinion on the Dolce And Gabbana controversy and firmly supports Elton John's views. The controversy stems from a comment made by designer Domenico Dolce in an interview in an Italian magazine, Panorama. In the interview, Dolce described children born by IVF as "synthetic babies". The March issue of the magazine was released on 12th March but the backlash against the duo continues with many celebrities and LGBT groups calling for a boycott of the label and protesters picketing D&G stores.

Kurt Cobain was trapped in a troubled homelife as a child with his parents having divorced, and it wasn't long before he embarked on a tragic path of self-destruction. Deliberately rebellious as a teenager with a lot of pent up anger and frustration, Cobain's creative talents were obvious to those who knew him as he'd constantly be working on songwriting or artwork. The fame of his grunge pioneer band Nirvana brought a lot of dangerous issues including drug use, and it took its toll on his relationship with Courtney Love, with whom he bore a child. It seemed he was happy to be building a family of his own, but his sudden suicide at the age of 27 was not unforeseen for a musician so determined to bring peace to his own mind.

The Hole frontwoman also confided her questionable finance management secrets.
Courtney Love’s $27 million in expenses might seem like a rather shocking amount, but she isn’t too worried – or at all, really. In a recent interview with the Sunday Times, the “Hole” frontwoman made the startling confession that she had burned through millions of “Nirvana money” in a very short time, having spent most of it on s number of lawsuits through the years.
Courtney Love's financial strategy is rather unorthodox to say the least.
Not one to worried, however, Love maintains her chill attitude about the whole thing: "I know that's a lifetime of money to most people, but I'm a big girl, it's rock 'n roll, it's Nirvana money, I had to let it go. I make enough to live on, I'm financially solvent, I focus on what I make now."

The widow of Kurt Cobain lost millions by settling several lawsuits over the years.
At one time Courtney Love, the widow to Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, was most likely sitting on one of rock music biggest fortunes, but she recently confessed to spending a massive chuck of it which was mainly due to settling numerous lawsuits over the years.
Love admits to spending "about $27 million" of Nirvana's fortune
Astonishingly, since inheriting the 90’s band’s fortune when Cobain killed himself in April 1994, the queen of grunge has managed to lose “about $27 million,” but Love doesn’t seem to be fazed by this too much.

Looks like things are going to get even darker in the town of Charming for the final season of motorcycle drama 'Sons of Anarchy'.
Speaking at the Television Critics Association preview night on Monday, lead actor Charlie Hunnam told reporters that "Jax is in a very schizophrenic state, he's obviously very sad and vulnerable and broken with this huge amount of revenge and anger in his heart." Of course this is a result of the events in the final episode of the sixth season, which aired at the end of 2013. The shocking betrayal of Jax by his mother Gemma astounded fans and critics, and the fallout is sure to be massive when the show returns on September 9th.
Hunnam has played Jax since the very first episode of 'Sons of Anarchy' which aired in 2008.
The show has a strong fan base and often receives positive reviews, but has failed to pick up as many accolades as other FX shows such as 'Damages' and 'The Shield'. However, Hunnam stated he was more concerned with delivering a satisfying end to the series for fans than winning awards. "It doesn't matter at all," he said. "I feel there's this perception that we're upset about it. I really don't give a sh--. I make this for the people who love the show."

Kurt Cobain's daughter admonishes Del Rey for morbid comments made in a recent interview.
Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, has lashed out at pop star Lana Del Rey over quotes printed in a recent interview with The Guardian in which Del Rey expresses a desire to be dead.
In a conversation discussing Lana's heroes, including Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse, who happen to be dead, Lana revealed her disenchantment with fame and attraction to death. "I wish I was dead already," she said, adding "I don't want to have to keep doing this. But I am."
On Sunday, Frances Bean, who lost her father to suicide at a young age, called out Del Rey in a series of strong, but not overly harsh, tweets. "The death of young musicians isn't something to romanticize," she warned.

The message is in Love's handwriting, one of many exchanged between her and Cobain.
You’d think that twenty years on, the surprises and shocking twists around Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love’s relationships would be all but over. Not so, however. Last week, CBS reported on a note, found in Cobain’s pocket after his death, which seemed to reference his relationship with Love. The note apperared to be written by Cobain about his turbulent relationship with Love, but now, a biographer of the Nirvana frontman has said that the note was, in fact, written by Love herself.
Apparently the note found in Cobain's pocket was not written by him.
The note, initially said to be written by Cobain reads: "'Do you Kurt Cobain take Courtney Michelle Love to be your lawful shredded wife. Even when she’s a bitch with zits and siphoning all your money for doping and whoring.'"
It's nearly time to usher in a new generation of rock legends.
Today's the day! A new year's worth of rock royalty will tonight be ushered into the coveted Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at Brooklyn's Barclays Center. Nirvana, Kiss, Peter Gabriel, Cat Stevens, Linda Ronstadt, Hall And Oates, the E Street Band, Andrew Loog Oldham and Brian Epstein are hours away from becoming the newest members of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Former Nirvana Rockers Dave Grohl & Krist Novoselic Will Be Performing At Tonight's Ceremony.
Stevens, now called Yusuf Islam, is going to perform alongside the E Street Band, who are being inducted b Bruce Springsteen, as well as Gabriel. Emmylou Harris, Carrie Underwood, Stevie Nicks and Bonnie Raitt will reportedly be singing a tribute to Ronstadt. SPIN is reporting that Joan Jett will sing the Nirvana tunes, which has ignited rock fan's imagination more than any other rumour.
Richard Lee believes that the Nirvana rocker's death was not a suicide.
The police department of Seattle is facing a lawsuit after releasing previously unseen photos from the scene of Kurt Cobain's suicide. The 18 photos largely show the late Nirvana rocker's belongings that surrounded him as he was found dead but more recent images have shown parts of Cobain's actual body. Self-styles investigative journalist Richard Lee is suing the police for not having released the previously undeveloped photos sooner.
A Man, Who Believes Kurt Cobain Was Murdered, Is Suing The Seattle Police Department.
Lee, who has run for Seattle mayor several times, has resolutely stood by his belief that Cobain's death was not a suicide and once hosted a public access television show called Kurt Cobain Was Murdered. Lee will be representing himself in the suit and is suing Seattle police for not releasing the Cobain death scene photos shortly after the Nirvana frontman's actual death, on April 5, 1994, according to the Seattle Pi.
The Nirvana frontman's daughter and widow have big plans for the band's legacy.
There could be a Kurt Cobain musical in the works. Well, that's if you believe what the late Nirvana frontman's widow Courtney Love is currently suggesting. Having dismissed the prospect of such a project for years, the Hole singer has now said that it is "very likely" that Nirvana's songs will be heard on Broadway.
Courtney Love Has Said That A Kurt Cobain Musical Is "Very Likely" To Happen.
In a recent interview with NME, Love said that she and daughter Frances Bean Cobaindecided to move ahead with a stage musical so long as they can "reach up to the highest shelf and select a team of the greatest and most respected writers, producers and directors." They apparently changed their mind after "tons of Nirvana fanmail" and persuasive support for the idea on social media.
No joke: the rocker has been using satellite images to help search.
Courtney Love has weighed in on the mystery of the Malaysia Airlines plane disappearance as the search enters its tenth day. The Hole rocker and former girlfriend of Nirvana star Kurt Cobain has been pitching in on Tomnod, a satellite imaging site that theoretically lets users anywhere in the world join in on the search for MH370.
Courtney Love Has Pitched In On The Search For MH370.
Love found something worth sharing when she discovered a strangely coloured patch of ocean with a suspicious-looking shadow nearby. The singer posted a link via Twitter, indicating that she thought she might have spotted the underwater plane and an oil slick. The image is vague at best but represents the ardent efforts of the millions of Tomnod users joining in with the search.

The singer was found not guilty in the libel case against her former lawyer Rhonda Holmes
Love was facing a $8million charge in the case
It's been almost four years, but Courtney Love has finally seen the end of what has been dubbed the 'twibel' court case. The rock chick was found not guilty in the first ever Twitter libel case, after San Diego attorney Rhonda Holmes filed a $8 million lawsuit against the Hole singer after she claimed Holmes was “bought off” in a tweet from June 2010.
Love had appeared in court to give her defence on Wednesday, 22 January, when she claimed to be a “computer retard” at the time of the tweet, stating that she was unsure of how to send direct messages through Twitter, which resulted in her hitting out against her former lawyer in plain view of her many Twitter followers. At the end of an 8-day trial, the Hole singer was not present on Friday's (24 Jan.) verdict reading, but judging by her elated tweets she was more than happy with how the case went.

The defamation case has ended in favor of Love.
The jury has sided with Courtney Love in the defamation case brought up against her by a former lawyer. The lawsuit centered around a tweet by Love implying that the lawyer had been “bought off” for not pursuing a lawsuit over her late husband's estate. The whole trial spanned eight days and after three hours of deliberation on Friday, according to USA Today. The specific tweet that the case was centered around was posted by Love in 2010 and suggested that San Diego attorney Rhonda Holmes had been "bought off" and that was why she wasn't representing the singer anymore.
Love was accused of defamation against her former lawyer in the Cobain lawsuit.
Holmes originally represented the Hole vocalist in a lawsuit against the estate of her late husband, Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain. During the trial that ended on Friday, Holmes claimed that she had been fired by Love and that the tweets issued by her former client had caused significant damage to her reputation. Love's tweet stated, "I was (expletive) devastated when Rhonda J Holmes Esq of san diego was bought off" in response to a question from user of the popular social media site.
Courtney Love has won her 'Twibel' court case against her former lawyer. This is the first case in the US to be brought to trial.
Courtney Love has won a landmark case involving her Twitter use. Love's trial is the first 'Twibel' case in the US to reach trial.
The Hole singer was in court over allegations by her former lawyer of using Twitter to libel. The singer allegedly used Twitter to discredit her lawyer. She was then sued for libel in an act which has since been dubbed 'Twibel'.
Tweeting in 2010, Love allegedly implied her then lawyer Rhonda Holmes had taken a bribe so she and her representative would back out of a legal battle with Kurt Cobain's managers. The legal battle concerned Love's late husband, Nirvana frontman Cobain's estate, which his managers and Love were disputing. Love was married to Cobain from 1992 until his death two years later and she is the mother of his only child Frances Bean Cobain. According to reports in the New York Daily News, Love had hired Holmes in 2008 in order to see which parts of Cobain's estate were being milked by various individuals in charge of it. Following prolonged legal action, a large proportion of Cobain's estate is controlled by Frances.
