A lot of people probably expected Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of Courtney Love and the late Kurt Cobain, to end up fucked up like her parents. Surprisingly, that hasn’t happened, and she seems to have a pretty good head on her shoulders and doesn’t suffer fools gladly. Case in point? She’s sorta sick of Lana Del Rey’s melodramatic bullshit about wanting to be dead and thinks she needs to take a serious dose of STFU with all this “I wish I was dead” crap she’s been spewing lately and her obsession with death throughout her music.
I mean, obviously Frances is going to react to shit like this more given what she’s gone through in her life. That being said, I agree with her. There seems to be this whole hipster movement over the past five years or so in which it seems dreamy and artistic to be morbidly obsessed with death and oblivion and to use that obsession to sorta drift out into the ether and be an asshole. It’s corny as shit, and Lana Del Rey is queen of that movement.
Frances Bean Cobain is totally underrated, I gotta say. I love the fact that someone who could be getting a shit ton of press by virtue of who she is just shuns that and lives her life like a normal human being. Love her… and those fierce eyebrows.

Though summer’s technically not over, I think it’s time to take a look back at everything that happened these summer months. There was a LOT. What do you think was the most shocking? The most WTF? The best fashion moment? Let’s vote!
In case you need a refresher, here are some links to these stories: (more…)

This isn’t really a new story – I swear Courtney Love‘s been telling this tall tale (because I really don’t believe it’s true) for years. Anyway, Frances Bean was apparently offered Kristen Stewart’s role of Bella in the Twilight films when she was only 13 (uh…) but she turned it down because even at that age, she knew it was a “sexist, Mormon piece of shit”. LOL!
Courtney and Frances have had a pretty strained relationship over the years, but Courtney likes to go on little brag sessions about Frances every once in a while like she’s a model parent and super proud of her. Maybe she is proud of Frances – after all, it takes a lot of skill not to go down the path your parents did.
From The Howard Stern Show:
“When she was 13 she was offered Twilight. She was offered Bella in Twilight… That’s a true story.”
“Somebody just saw a picture of her in a magazine, and sent me this script for Twilight. She was like, ‘That’s a sexist, Mormon piece of shit.’ She was 13. It would have destroyed her life.”
“I’m really good with my daughter right now. We’re really good.”
Oh, lord. I suppose that makes sense considering they haven’t seen each other in person for three years. Much easier to get along with someone when you don’t have to spend any time with them. Watch Courtney spinning her tales below:

Kendall Jenner got slammed on twitter by Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain‘s kid, Frances Bean Cobain a few days and she responded on Facebook. Which is kind of…I mean why not respond on twitter? Angry Beans responded to Ms. Jenner’s stupid tweet “Just wish things could be easier sometimes mann” with two long tweets containing such wise nuggets as “There are kids on earth abandoned&homeless” and blah blah ending with “humans are so self involved.”
From Radar, via DListed:
i am aware that i am very privileged and blessed, and im thankful for that everyday, i know there are greater problems in the world. i pray for those people every night and give back as much as i can. so who are u to judge me?
However, and as DListed pointed out, the Facebook post has been deleted. If it was even there. What really annoys me is that Jenner keeps using “i” and “u” — it’s Facebook, you can spare the characters.
I mean this has to be one of the more boring “celebrity” twitter exchanges ever, right? Even the Jenny McCarthy/Amanda Bynes face-off was more interesting.

Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love‘s kid, Frances Bean Cobain, is 20 years-old now (!!!!!!!87328!W276e###!2/mind exploding). She’s very outspoken and she took the time to slam Kendall Jenner, Miss. Non-Kardashian. Miss Jenner tweeted,
Just wish things could be easier sometimes mann
To which Miss Cobain responded on twitter,
oh shh. There are kids on earth abandoned&homeless who forcibly drink contaminated water because clean water isn’t accessible
oh ya, not to mention, CANCER, famine, poverty, draught, disease, natural disasters, Death. Fuck, Humans are so self involved
See, I was with Miss Frances Bean Cobain right up until her second response, because saying “humans are so self involved” in a twitter attack on Kendall Jenner seems kind of self involved to me. It’s the “high and mightiness” of it all, even if her point is a good one. But yeah, everyone hates a Kardashian, even one who isn’t, and seriously, Kendall Jenner has never had to want for anything. I just really wished Angry Beans stopped before she added that she’d,
rather be a scumbag than a f-cking idiot. Praise high IQ’s, good taste & awareness about the state of the world
I’d like to thank my parents for providing me with a high IQ & I’d like to thank my grams for encouraging me not to be a self absorbed idiot.
Like, come on, you’re 20. Sit down, chill out, and don’t humblebrag about your “high IQ” and your parents.
But if forced to choose a side, I’ll go with Angry Beans.
Thanks to Huffington Post for chronicling this.

As we all know, Courtney Love is way embarrassing. She’s embarrassing to herself, and she’s especially embarrassing to her poor daughter, Frances Bean. For instance, remember that time earlier this year that Courtney accused Dave Grohl of trying to seduce Frances Bean on Twitter, and the poor girl just suggested that she be banned from the internet?
Well, even with all those hard, awkward times, it looks like Frances and Courtney can still reach into their hearts to share the holiday cheer. Here’s something that Courtney tweeted yesterday:
And Frances Bean’s loving response:
And Courtney’s reaction:
Now didn’t that just warm your heart?
