Published Apr 28, 2010Well, not a week goes by without some sort of Courtney Love-related weirdness. If she isn't changing her stage name to Courtney Michelle (a decision she quickly backpedalled on), she's accusing her 17-year-old daughter of beating her up. And this week's version is a little stranger, especially for those who have followed the long-running dispute over rights to the music of the late Kurt Cobain.
According to an interview with the Scotsman, Love is considering selling off the rights to all of Cobain's music, we're assuming to whomever is the highest bidder.
Love said she no longer wants to be known as "the widow" and claims that Cobain's money has "been cursed since the day it started to come in."
"I'm thinking about selling off all of Kurt's publishing. All of the rights, everything. It's not a financial decision, it's an emotional one," Love told the newspaper.
Two years ago, Love sold a portion of the Nirvana publishing rights for $19.5 million, and in 2006 she sold a 25 percent share to an ex-Virgin Records executive who became her business partner. And now she's jabbering about selling off all the remaining Cobain music.
"He was the best friend I've ever had, but Kurt and I were only married for three years, and now I need to have my own life. I'm always 'the widow' and that drives me nuts... It's not really my money. I don't want Kurt Cobain to buy me shoes anymore. I want to buy my own shoes - lots of them."
But take this all in stride because, in related news, it looks like someone's off their meds again.
