This young woman has my heart.
Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of the late Kurt Cobain and the we-wish-were-late Courtney Love, has begun to slowly emerge onto the media scene since she turned 18 last year.
She’s showcased her artwork (starting with a nom de plume while she was still underage).
She’s begun attending college at Brown University as an undergraduate.
She’s even bought herself a cozy home in California.
She’s settled in to a long engagement with Isaiah Silva, of The Rambles. Long engagements are a must for young love.
And she has the wherewithal and good sense to put an end to her mother’s recent Twitter rants against Dave Grohl last week (formerly of Nirvana, currently lead singer for the Foo Fighters) over ‘rumors’ that he hit on Frances Bean. We’ll use the term ‘rumors’ here loosely, given that we don’t know where the speculation may have occurred (either with a roommate of Frances Bean, or a driver—as Courtney suggests, but she cannot seem to remember which) or perhaps, in Love’s own sordid mind.
Love went on to speculate that Grohl was chasing after Frances Bean because he had always been “sexually obsessed with” Kurt as well and that he “had that Romney rape thing about him.” Grohl was the first to deny the claims, once they came to his attention (as Love had accidentally sent them to some student in Germany, and not Grohl, as she intended), and Frances Bean took it a step further with her Twitter remarks on the subject:
“While I’m generally silent on the affairs of my biological mother, her recent tirade has taken a gross turn. I have never been approached by Dave Grohl in more than a platonic way. I’m in a monogamous relationship and very happy.”
She then added:
“Twitter should ban my mother.”
Well said, Frances Bean. Your ability to turn out as a somewhat normal human being, given your childhood, is quite remarkable, and you should be commended for it.
Courtney Love went on to apologize to Frances (again, publicly, in the Twitterverse) in baby talk:
“Bean, sorry I believed the gossip. Mommy loves you.”
Frances Bean has been careful to steer clear of her mother in recent years, which has included not speaking with her in some time and also taking out a protective order. I cannot imagine why…
