Courtney Love Offers Nirvana Songs To X Factor

Kurt Cobain's widow tries to give performance rights to Nirvana songs to the biggest music show in the western world - but a little too late.

Courtney Love Offers Nirvana Songs To X Factor
0
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.

    Simon should've at least offered her some cocaine in return, it's the polite thing to do

    This woman is obviously desperate. It's pretty F***ing sad That she needs to piss all over Dave and Krist, and then try and sell out Nirvana to "make ends meet". If Kurt were alive (R.I.P) I'm shure he would divorce her ass!

    So, the remaining band members of Nirvana aren't ''entitled'' to the royalties gotten from the Nirvana; but, Courtney Love, who simply ****ed one of the band members is ''entitled'' to the royalties and is allowed to offer Simon Cowell the chance to make money off the band. Hmm, maybe my logic is flawed but this is what I have: Courtney Love, Simon Cowell > Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic - with regard to Nirvana. My head hurts...

    I still can't see her issue with Dave Grohl buying a car with his royalty money. It's money. You buy things with it. That's what you do.

    if we wrapped kurt in magnets and lined his grave with coils of copper he could power a small city with how fast he's turning in his grave

    I just spent ten minutes trying to recover my UG password, and having to reset it, just so I could comment on this. Tell ya a little somethin'? In all seriousness UG, STOP POSTING SHIT ABOUT COURTNEY LOVE!! It's just pissing us off, and making us hope that bitch will die. Say, I might just go on a little vacation soon... If she's gone, you know who it was.

    "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." Courtney Love needs to use some Inishative and F*CK OFF!!!

    So it seems now that nobody's interested in Lulu any more we're getting spammed about some wizened tart under the bizarre impression that she's relevant. Cheers UG

    Courtney Love... There is a difference between Heroine and Heroin. You have very little to say about where Nirvana's music should go because you had nothing to do with it. Stop trying to be the center of attention because you don't have any coat tails to hang on to anymore or any more snow to sniff. For someone with a last name like Love, she sure makes it easy for people to hate everything in existence.

    christ won't she just **** off and leave nirvana alone, she has nothing to do with the band only Kurt (R.I.P.) how long before a "she killed Kurt" comment I wonder (except mine)
    Kuroishi_x
    Ok, if I get this logic right ... when Courtney dies, Dave and Krist will get the Hole royalties (but they won't buy car with this) (=

    She's a lazy toad. If she can make money in any other form than working for it, she'll do it. I strongly disagree with her and think she should be removed from this planet.

    Everytime I see Courtney love's name on a title I comfort myself by thinking: "Oh well, she's gonna O.D. very soon..."

    I bet in a month or so she'll be complaining about the X-Factor using Nirvana songs.

    I can't wait till she OD's on something. I'm so sorry for saying that I don't know what came over me.... I just had a Courtney Love moment.

    Thing that pisses me off is hole was meant to tour Australia for the soundwave festival but she cancelled because hole was billed bellow limp Bizkit. I need money but I find ridiculous reasons not to work, can I have money for something my husband did now? Damn how do I get money without making it? this was so much easier when kurt was alive.

    oh yes dave grohl and krist don't deserve shit, they were only 2/3 of the band after all and had 100% more creative input than courtney love ever did, poor frances bean, wonder when her "mother" will start financially bloodsucking her daughter dry...

    Aside from every teenage girl liking Smells Like Teen Spirit and thinking they're a rocker, what makes me laugh yhe most is the "forgetting the lyrics to Mmmbop" part. Is that true? Is UG trolling us... AGAIN?

    Most interesting part of this article: There's a little town named "Inishative." Very cool.

    For the love of all things holy, stop writing about Courtney Love. It's well documented that she is absolutely bat shit insane, and at this point it's not even entertaining anymore. Please find better topics to write about. Every time I come to UG and see that coked out mess of a face on the front page, I die a little inside.

    This is why I'll always sign a pre-nup. Chances are you'll end up with a crazy bitch in disguise.

    Well at least she'll overdose on heroin soon... Oh shit forgot you need money to buy the heroin! Noooo we have to put up with this bitch. Kurt, you shot the wrong person.

    Looking at the front page today, I could tell that UG was out to piss everyone off today...

    This bitch needs to stop. Nirvana was never my cup of tea to begin with. However, I will admit the impact they had on music. And to say that Grohl had nothing to do with it she's out of her ****ing mind. He put in his time recording, touring and putting his drum flavor all over their music. She was a junkie with a shitty band that was going nowhere. She married another junkie (an overrated one at that) with a lot of money. And that's how shes is where she is. Shes literally a money hungry *****. The Anna Nicole Smith of the rock realm. I mean seriously this chick is so bat-shit she had her kid taken away from her. The media needs to stop giving her attention so she'll kill herself.

    Dave could totally hire a hitman to take care of her with his money from royalties.
