It’s probably no great feat for a 19-year-old to outwit their insane, drug addict mother (heroin-crumb trail into a cage works everytime), but Frances Bean Cobain did exactly that by getting Courtney Love to release control of Kurt Cobain‘s publishing rights in exchange for a 2.75 million dollar loan. Via Page Six:

Until the loan is repaid, Love won’t profit at all from Cobain, and 19-year-old Frances Bean will run the show.

I honestly can’t believe it’s taken this long. That kid was more qualified to handle that estate before she could even walk. Not like it matters anyway because Courtney’s a famous artist now. She’s completely on Banksy’s level with pieces like this. And I think it’s safe to say that Kurt Cobain’s huge penis was the muse for this stunning work of genius. BAM, suck it Frances Bean! “You can keep your multi-million dollar publishing empire because I taught this troll who lives in my paint brush jar how to make Xanax from a charcoal pencil.” Did I mention Courtney Love is an insane drug addict? Because Courtney Love is an insane drug addict.

    If I were Frances, I’d move me and my money to Holland and never look back.

      Just have Courtney pick up the check south of the border. There is some chance Mexico will be snorted right off existing maps while Courtney hoovers up all the coke she’s going to buy with that money, but its worth a shot.

    On a serious note, Frances Bean Cobain, a round of applause for keeping your shit together all these years. That’s no mean feat.

    • EricLr

      This was one case where a daughter rebelling against her mother was a very smart move.

    • El Jefe

      Seriously, I thought she was going to be a train wreck, but she has been surprisingly smart and normal. She beat the odds so far.

    • She is the very rare case of a child growing up in a world of crazy and becoming immune to it. Most people would be content to wallow in the filth they were raised in. Congrats, Frances.

  3. Frank Burns

    Christ Brown just had his art show too, so I guess they are both artists? They should have a celebrity artist throw-down! By which I mean they should both be thrown down the stairs of a 100-story building, or maybe the tallest Aztec temple (its more scenic that way – art, you know).

  4. Dude of Dudes

    “WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU MEAN IM NOT BEING PAID IN COKE AND HEROIN? FRANCES! GET THE SHOTGUN!”

  5. Frank Burns

    I’ll give Courtney $2.75 towards that loan if she throws all her ‘art’ into a furnace.

    This looks like the insane scribblings you see scattered across the desk of someone who works in an in-patient therapy setting and is reviewing a long-term resident’s file. …

    Screw the art show – gather all that trash and get it to a therapist QUICK for analyzing. I think we might finally figure out what’s left of her brain.

    • EricLr

      Don’t waste time or money on a therapist. Just give her a kilo of heroin and by morning the problem will have fixed itself for good.

    Yes; Courtney Love continues to be an inspiration to women everywhere. Her message of empowerment, “fuck me” on the wedding dress is particularly stirring.

    For the love of God; this woman is nothing more than a flaming boil on the world’s poor, exhausted buttock – how does she continue to get press time?

    The funny thing is, if one of the actual overrated “modern art” sages created this, it would be priceless.

    That’s why modern art is a sham and the people that follow it a joke.

    “The “fuck you all” scribbled by her hip dictates the stark contrasts in our societal norms involving motherhood, versus the preconceived notions of superficial lust.”

      That “Art Speak for Dummies” class you took is finally paying off.

        I love art shows – you can say any pretentious thing you want about art, especailly if you know nothing, if you say it woth conviction. This appears to be the exhibit by the attention-mad mental patient, yes?

        Sadly, yes.

        Kudos to Frances, for being alive and sane, and for the brilliant ruse she pulled on her mom. THAT’S the true work of art here.

    Hey Kid, I see you’re adding famous artist to your long list of accomplishments. It’s good to see you’ve maintained those fantastic looks along the way. That is a true testament to the healthy lifestyle you employ!

    so how much botox and special k will 2.75 mil buy?

    More proof of this train wreck’s serious ongoing mental illnessess.
    I swear sometimes I think that the NY/LA art crowd would eat shit off a sidewalk if you told them it was part of a performance art piece by (insert celebrity name here).

    The only way these things will be worth anything is when she is dead.

    • Rapsutin's Evil Twin

      With that much $$$ in hand, the value of the “works” should increase in 5, 4,3,2……

      Bingo! More $$$ for Frances. This young woman is way smarter than we thought.

    I would buy all of this art because, when Courtney Love finally succumbs to injuries suffered when she tried to eat an entire schoolbus, it’s going to be priceless.

    “What do I know about art? Twenty years ago I just wanted to be the girl with the most cake!”

  44. In her journal, her list went like this…
    She’s not even:
    - sober
    - coherent
    - conscious
    - human
    - fully mutated
    - saved by the bell
    - erect
    - fully dialated
    - close
    - marketable
    - into Nirvana

  45. “And she’s not even pretty”…. help me out, old Hole fans (or used-to-be fans, as that’s the category I fall into now)… who said that to her?? I can’t remember. My point is, this is one more example on her holding onto the time where she was (somewhat) relevant. It’s 20-f’n'-12. The name of her art show is something someone said to her/about her roughly 20+ years ago (I wish I could remember the context.. errr). As you get older, you do get wiser, and to everyone I ever said “F You. Kurt and Billy don’t write her songs!”, I stand corrected b/c her art are shit sketches and titled after someone’s poorly placed jealous at the time and we haven’t heard a good song since Celebrity Skin and I’ll just say that b/c it sounds like it’s got Corgan all over it and I’m a Corgan fan. I wasn’t even remotely excited when original Hole got together last month (irony, MADM was more annoying the Clove). Pa-f**ckin-thetic.

    My hat is off to Francis for beating the odds.

    I’ll be surprised if Clove makes it out of 2012. I guess we can all take solace that Kurt’s going to chew her ass when he sees her. Thanks for reading my rant.

    • kimmykimkim

      Yeah, it’s familiar to me too. The first thing that came to my mind was “pretty on the inside”. Then I noticed in that one “piece” where she’s holding the baby, lyrics from “I Think That I Would Die.” Then I started to look for old lyrics in the other drawings but there’s too much going on to be able to see anything. She seriously needs some new material. The last decent song she had, in my opinion, (which I’m almost 100% positiive was written by Billy Corgan) was “Reasons to be Beautiful.” Whoever wrote that song, good job, cuz I still like it. Yeah I’ll admit it.

    • Franka

      When you’re young its OK to be edgy, rebellious and attention seeking. It ceases to be cool when you refuse to grow up and can find nothing more to rebel against than the sensibilities of your own kid, and give every appearance of competing with her. What a bitch.

    Uh, its clear she has no formal art education. Sad that celebrities can have their shitty art shown but a non celebrity with true talent, can’t even get their foot in the door.
