I’ll tell you, if you told me this in my waking hours early, early this morning, I would have laughed you out of my bedroom (and what the hell are you doing in my bedroom anyway?). I would have said, “Yeah, sure. And Beyonce Knowles has pregnancy stretch marks, haw haw guffaw.” But folks, if I was so quick to negate the headline and go solely by my knee-jerk reaction, I’d be wrong. Wrong and surprised, which is where I’m at right about now, and those two things aren’t great things to fathom so early in the day.
“We’re each other’s everything,” Silva, 26, tells PEOPLE about Cobain, 19, and himself. “We’re homebodies. We don’t go out to clubs so you won’t find us stumbling out of them with Lindsay Lohan. We stay at home, read books and watch Arrested Development.”
HELL YES on the Lindsay Lohan slam. Too cool. Here’s one of Isaiah’s bandmates, Mark Kuchel, also saying that the couple is totally introverted:
“They’re quiet and shy. They’re a great couple. Frances comes to most of our shows that she can get into.”
Isaiah also claims that he loves how strong of a woman the nineteen-year-old Frances is:
“I love strong, opinionated, intelligent women,” says Silva, who spent the first 18 years of his life in the Fullerton Assembly of God group, a faction focused on strict Christian values and the second coming of Christ. “Women in the [group] were totally oppressed, but I am very pro-woman.”
So, OK. Some might say a little unhealthy, maybe, yes. Honestly, “we’re each other’s everything”? God. I remember being like that when I was nineteen with this douchebag that I should never even considered looking at, let alone briefly living with. Hell’s bells. But staying home, reading books, watching Arrested Development? Alright. Redemption. So maybe they’re not a codependent virus that is slowly self-destructing and ending in a murder-suicide. That’s really great. That’s already a step above what happened with Courtney and Kurt, except for that Courtney didn’t have the courtesy to off herself after she disposed of Kurt.
I like these two, I honestly do. I think they both seem introspective and intelligent and they definitely make an attractive couple. Even though they’re still kind of young-ish, I wish them all the best. And as long as mom doesn’t weave herself into their lives like a coiled-up serpent with acid-coated skin, they’ll probably pan out alright. Isn’t that the best thing we can really pray for when it comes to something that ultimately emerged from Courtney Love’s vagina and is living its own life?
