Courtney Love Claims To Have Lost 27 Million Dollars Of ‘Nirvana Money’


As much as I love Courtney’s band’s music, I have to say this woman is a bit crazy. Actually, probably more than a bit. Her husband, legendary Kurt Cobain, died in 1994, and since then the rights of the band’s music has been under control of a ‘board’ (that cracks me up) which involves Courtney and of course the remaining members of Nirvana Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic. She claims the money that accrued from their fame has mostly gone to settling lawsuits over the years. And also dispels the ‘rumor’ that her daughter Frances Bean, has any control over anything Nirvana related.

“There’s this myth out there – put out by Frances’ lawyers – that Frances runs the catalogue, which is absolute nonsense,” Love revealed. “When she’s 40, she becomes a member of the board and she has a vote, but not now.”

As a current member of that board, Love said she has preserved the Nirvana song catalog from cheesy oversaturation in the pop cultural/commercial landscape — including an intriguing-sounding KFC campaign. “I’ve protected it [the Nirvana catalogue] from everything from Kentucky Fried Chicken commercials to movies about board games,” Love said. “We’ve been offered $6 million for 18 seconds of one Nirvana song and I turned it down.”

I’m just glad that Smells Like Teen Spirit ended up in the Muppets. That was perfect. But I do want more information about this KFC commercial. What the heck did they want with Nirvana?!
