Courtney Love: 'Kurt Cobain Was Desperate to Be the Biggest Rock Star in the World'
Courtney Love has recently debunked her late husband Kurt Cobain's statements about having an uncompromising stance towards music, saying that Kurt was in fact desperate for rock star attention.

In a new National Geographic miniseries "The '90s: The Last Great Decade?" Courtney reacted to Cobain's old statement about being "too stubborn to allow myself to ever compromise our music or turn us into big rock stars."

"He wanted fame bad!" she said. "He wrote to every major, minor, any label, 'We'll pay. Let us be on your label.' He was desperate to be the biggest rock star in the world, absolutely desperate. But he made it look like it was thrust upon him."

Courtney also touched on Kurt's death during a separate Vanity Fair interview. Asked on whether she's still angry at Cobain, Love replied, "Mad? Ya think?! If he came back right now I'd have to kill him, for what he did to us. I'd f--king kill him. I'd f--k him, and then I'd kill him."

As for "The '90s: The Last Great Decade?" the show is set for premiere this Sunday (July 6) on Nat Geo.
