Courtney Love Accuses Kermit The Frog of Rape

In other news, I’m fairly certain that that was the best headline I’ve ever had the pleasure of writing.

But back to the main story, which, of course, is that well-known crazy bitch, Courtney Love, does in fact believe that Kermit the Frog, as well as the rest of his lovable Muppets, are actually rapists. Really.

From TMZ:

Courtney Love believes Kermit the Frog and his gang of Muppet friends “raped” the memory of her late husband Kurt Cobain — by bastardizing Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” in their 2011 movie … without her permission.

Courtney says she has the absolute power to approve or nix the use of Kurt’s music for commercial purposes, and she never gave the OK for the 2 companies to use the song for the 2011 Muppets movie.

But there’s another side to this … We’re told Courtney sold off half of her rights to Kurt’s music to a company called Primary Wave Music. And there’s more … Courtney also gave Primary Wave the exclusive right to distribute Nirvana’s entire catalog.

As far as “Smells Like Teen Spirit” goes … not only did Primary Wave approve the use in the Muppet’s movie, they got permission from the two surviving Nirvana members –Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic. And Dave is even in the movie.

But it’s not all that bad for Courtney. We’re told a chunk of the profits from songs in the catalog go to Courtney and her daughter, Frances Bean.

Now, we all know it’s not cool to throw around the word “rape” when you’re not actually talking about rape, right? That’s an established fact now? No one has any questions about that? Then let’s move right along.

Oh my goodness, the nerve of this woman. I know that she’s not exactly in the greatest health mentally, but come on now. “The Muppets raped the memory of Kurt Cobain,” was that really a thought that ever needed to exist in anyone’s head at all? I mean, did she forget that she gave a company the right to distribute Nirvana’s music? Did that just slip her mind? Besides, shouldn’t Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic have more of a say in matters like these than Courtney does, since it’s their music we’re talking about here? Should I even be wasting my time trying to figure out the thought processes of Courtney Love?

I don’t know, I’m just too fired up about this. I just thought that The Muppets was such a beautiful gift to us all, and for Courtney to just spit in the face of these lovable creatures just blows my mind. It’s unnecessary, it bothers me, and I’m additionally bothered by being so bothered about someone speaking poorly of the Muppets. What is even happening?

Are any of you guys rolling your eyes as hard as I am over this whole thing?
