Courtney Love Offers Nirvana Songs To X Factor
Courtney Love has offered use of Nirvana tracks to the "X Factor" creator Simon Cowell. She tweeted the music business brainiac with an offer of the songs, incorrectly saying that UK contestant Janet Devlin is from the same town as Kurt Cobain and that she has the "perfect idea" for making the song work live. It transpired that Kurt's ancestors were instead from the same Northern Irish village of Inishative near Gortin that Janet hails from, according to NME. However, Love would be lucky to have her idea for the young singer played out, because Janet was evicted from the UK "X Factor" last night after forgetting the lyrics to Hanson's "MMMBop". Courtney Love is the gatekeeper of Nirvana song rights, even though she has to share its royalties with the remaining band members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic. She recently launched a scathing verbal attack on Grohl during a gig, after she found that he bought a car with the royalties - which she feels he is not entitled to. As previously reported, she claimed to call his credit card company and lied that he died in a plane crash in order to retrieve his spending history. "If it's a fan at a bank or whatever, I'll get information. If it's a mean black lady, I'm not going to get any information," she admitted to MTV Brasil. "I get this fan, and I'm like, 'Oh, Dave and Krist died in a terrible plane crash." Love claims that she is only left with enough money for a "cup of coffee" after Grohl, Novoselic, her daughter and lawyers get cuts of the Nirvana royalties. Maybe her call to Simon Cowell is a further sign that she's out of cash.
