Frances Bean Cobain Doesn’t Care About The ’90s But Definitely Wants Her Dad’s Guitar Back
Frances Bean Cobain is the face of Marc Jacobs’ latest collection. And in a new interview with Vogue to discuss the campaign, she didn’t have any particularly kind words for the fashion world’s obsession with ’90s nostalgia. “I don’t fucking care what they did in the ’90s; I wasn’t around and it’s not relevant to me,” she says. “Yes, the ’90s were influential, for sure, but it’s just not my cup of tea. When it’s shoved down your throat every day for 24 years, you just stop caring.”
That said, she does does care quite a bit about some parts of the ’90s — specifically, her dad’s guitar. Cobain is in the midst of a messy divorce with her estranged husband Isaiah Silva, and a major point of contention between them is the guitar that Kurt played on Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged. Silva has had the 1959 Martin D-18E acoustic in his possession since she filed for divorce last March, insisting that she gave it to him as a gift and thus it is his to keep. But Frances Bean Cobain says that she never would’ve given him a “priceless family heirloom,” and TMZ reports that she’s now filed documents asking a judge to force him to return it — or at least allow her to inspect it to make sure he’s kept it in good condition and make him hand it over to an art shipping company for safekeeping while they resolve the matter. The judge has yet to rule on her request.
