COURTNEY LOVE Shoots Down Rumors Of NIRVANA Musical
According to The Pulse Of Radio, Courtney Love has shot down rumors that a NIRVANA musical is in the works. Reports surfaced recently that on-again, off-again Britney Spears manager Sam Lufti claimed that he was working with Love on a Broadway show, which would focus on the life of her husband, late NIRVANA frontman Kurt Cobain, as well as their marriage and the band's career. But Love told England's Guardian, "There will be no musical. Sometimes it's best just to leave things alone."
She explained, "I said yes once — to (director) Baz Luhrmann to use eight seconds of 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' in 'Moulin Rouge'. But he wasn't allowed to use it in the marketing."
Love did sell half the rights to Cobain's publishing several years ago for tens of millions of dollars, but said now, "I got so bullied into selling what I sold. I regret it so much. I'm never selling the rest of it."
Love added that she still controls the Cobain estate despite rumors that she turned it over to her estranged daughter, Frances Bean Cobain.
Although Love has been interested in making films about both her life and her husband's, she says she's been cautious about allowing Cobain's songs to be used in other projects.
