Courtney Love – “Miss Narcissist”

It’s not often that we get to hear new music from Courtney Love, though she did give us one song on the Empire soundtrack and another single, “You Know My Name,” last year.

Courtney Love: Montage Of Heck Helped Frances Bean Heal “In A Way That I Certainly Couldn’t Do”

Montage Of Heck, the recent documentary about Kurt Cobain’s life, might be the most comprehensive, honest portrayal of the iconic Nirvana frontman that’s ever been done.

Frances Bean Cobain Gives Rare Interview: “I Don’t Really Like Nirvana That Much”

If you were Frances Bean Cobain, you probably wouldn’t like Nirvana much, either. So before any diehard fans get up in arms about it, think about how the stuff your parents are affiliated with indelibly loses some of its crisp, shiny meaning, blunted by family ties. And, to her credit, Frances has mostly avoided talking… More »

Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck: The Stereogum Review

Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck is a movie about the frontman of Nirvana, but it isn’t about Nirvana. The word Bleach is never uttered. Dave Grohl was not interviewed, and his entry into the band is not addressed; he’s just there all of a sudden as the archival footage shifts into the Nevermind era. Eve… More »

Watch Courtney Love Talk Montage Of Heck, Drugs, & Dave Grohl On Letterman

Courtney Love guested on Letterman last night to chat about her debut appearance on the show Empire, which will air tonight.

Preview Courtney Love’s Empire Debut And Stream Her “Take Me To The River” Cover

Fox’s series Empire is only a few episodes into its first season, but it’s proven to be a saga worth keeping an eye on.
