We don’t normally cover this type of non-celebrity spat (or anything Lohan-related really), but considering the amount of coverage Courtney Love gets in the blogosphere, it’s perfectly fine for us to post a bit about her daughter with Kurt Cobain, I say. For one, Frances Bean Cobain is mentioned in just about every Courtney Love rant about money (e.g. “Ryan [Adams]… You spent 858,000 dollars on this record of My Daughters (sic) Money.”), so it’s particularly interesting that Kurt Cobain’s daughter has strong (though spell-check-impaired) opinions on the issue of celebrity entitlement.
“Your not entitled to anything simply because your sister has a recognizable name,” Cobain wrote in an open letter to Lindsay Lohan’s sister, Ali. “Your idea of fame isn’t fame. It’s infamy. You want to be famous? Work your ass off and make decisions that could potentially catapult your career into a lasting one. Notariety for who you are and notaritey for the work you produce are two completely differnt things.”
Call me crazy, but despite Cobain’s apparent need for more education and inevitable Courtney Love influence, this rant has a bit of Kurt’s inspired anti-establishment rage. And then she closes with this:
I would rather die a most painful death the be assoicated with the kind of careere your trying to make for your self. I hope i’m wrong because generally i’m not a very judgmental person, but in the case of you, that is MY entitlement.
