Courtney Love Walks Offstage After Fan Holds Up Kurt Cobain Photo
There are few people in the entertainment industry who are as polarizing as Courtney Love. The widow of Kurt Cobain has taken criticism for exploiting her late husband’s death, tainting the Nirvana legacy, being a crappy mother and the list goes on. However, Love has never been the one to just sit there and take it. The Hole frontwoman has lashed out at critics plenty of times, and she showed her fury at a show in Brazil over the weekend when she walked offstage after someone in the crowd was waving a picture of Cobain.
As reported by NME, Hole were performing at the SWU festival in Sao Paulo when Love noticed the picture during their set. This apparently upset her enough that she verbally attacked the fan.
“I don’t need to see a picture of Kurt, a______, and I’m going to have you f______ removed if you keep holding that up,” Love exclaimed. “I’m not Kurt, I have to live with his s___ and his ghost and his kid every day and throwing that up is stupid and rude and I’m going to beat the f___ out of you if you do it again.”
Love’s tirade continued: “You weren’t f______ married to him, I f______ was. You didn’t get kicked out of a band by him, like Dave, he did. Go see the f______ Foo Fighters and do that s___.”
The singer proceeded to leave the stage followed by the rest of the band. It wasn’t until someone from Love’s camp told the crowd to chant “The Foo Fighters are gay” that Hole returned to the stage. Love decided to take another shot at Grohl.
“I don’t care what you listen to at home, but if a guy takes off money off my kid’s table, f___ him.”
Video of the incident can be seen below.
Maybe the Soundwave Festival should reconsider their decision to put Hole lower than Limp Bizkit on the bill, which caused Love to pull out from the festival. Stupid rants like this can provide endless amounts of entertainment and more insults thrown towards Courtney Love.
