Frances Cobain is a Rolling Stone intern; may also be a brat


Frances and Courtney Cobain on 8/2/07. Newer photos have her looking a lot more grown up
Frances Cobain, the long suffering daughter of whackjob Courtney Love and the deceased Kurt Cobain, has somehow landed herself a coveted internship at Rolling Stone Magazine. I’m sure it’s because she is an outstanding student and an accomplished budding journalist. There was certainly no nepotism involved. Right? Yeah, I didn’t buy it, either. The teen may or may not be doing a good job in her position, depending on whom you believe.

Most magazine interns fetch coffee, run errands for editors and do some actual work – but maybe not Frances Bean Cobain. The 15-year-old daughter of Courtney Love and Nirvana rocker Kurt Cobain is the new summer aide at Rolling Stone. Insiders say “she doesn’t get coffee for anyone . . . calls in sick all the time and wears funny outfits.” A Rolling Stone rep denied the story, telling Page Six, “She’s a great girl, and we’re thrilled to have her.”

[From NY Post]

Maybe Frances is interning to be the new, female Hunter S. Thompson. That would actually be kind of awesome. The magazine has had a huge void since Hunter died, lacking an authentic voice of countercultural debauchery. Frances definitely has the pedigree of insanity and family history of drug abuse that would put her in the running to step in and fill that void. Maybe she could write a book called “Fear and Loathing in Seattle.” That poor girl has probably seen more in her 15 years than most adults I know. As for the funny outfits- have you seen what her mother wears in public?

    15 is very young to be an intern. She’s not old enough to drive, maybe that’s why she doesn’t have to get coffee. :wink:

  2. jinx says:

    A lot of times children of addicts actually take on a parental role. She was with Courtney when she hit bottom and right before the court placed Frances with relatives she had to be taking care of both of them.

    She seems very poised for a person her age, I’m sure part of this internship is going to be about Frances learning that people who work show up, on time and omg stay all day and do stuff they are asked to do! She’s probably never going to do a conventional job but at least she will have an idea of what millions of others do every day. Unless her mom blows what’s left of the Kurt money – again.

    “The magazine has had a huge void since Hunter died, lacking an authentic voice of countercultural debauchery.”

    That’s quite an understatement. They’re definitely a very mainstream, celeb-oriented rag since the 1980s. No more groundbreaking or cutting-edge music journalism.

  4. Trillion says:

    Is that even Courtney’s face anymore? She went from naturally ugly to unnaturally ugly since Kurt died. I recall she got a massive boob job shortly after his death and told people she was at an ashram in upstate New York to keep the surgery a secret. Kurt would not approve of anything this phony wanna be does.

  5. Bodhi says:

    If she is a brat its probably because she is 15. Aren’t all 15 year old girls brats?

  6. KateNonymous says:

    Years ago, I read an interview with Courtney Love (in Vanity Fair, maybe?) in which she was asked to name the one lesson she wanted her daughter to learn, if that was the only thing she could teach her. Love’s answer was something like “Ignore history, nothing before you matters.”

    So it wouldn’t surprise me if Frances Bean is a brat. I’m not sure what else she’s been raised to be.

    On the other hand, who knows? Maybe she didn’t show up one day and was slow getting coffee for someone who was rude to her. I don’t know that there’s any way to know how accurate or inaccurate the complaints are.

    …15 and a summer intern for Rolling Stone?! 8O Yeeeah, NO nepotism THERE, whoo-boy! Hell, I went to one of the best liberal-arts colleges in NYC and we couldn’t land that gig to save our lives. No matter how much it may suck now, it’s still probably the most coveted internship in the ‘alternative’ publishing world.

  8. vdantev says:

    Good thing she looks like her dad, is all I can say. Rolling Stone magazine lost its edge about the same time Britney Spears first graced its covers. It used to be about real artists with depth and soul until that moment, now its just another RIAA voicebox / advertising outlet.

  9. CandyKay says:

    The reason I don’t read Rolling Stone is because of its heavy-handed politics. I didn’t vote for Bush and am no fan of most of his policies (check out his huge investment in fighting AIDS in Africa before you react to the “most of”), but Rolling Stone acts like there were no troubles on Earth or in Heaven before he got into office. Its anti-Bush pieces are just pound, pound, pound, which I find unreadable.

  10. Blackalicious says:

    she looks like Tina Yothers from Family Ties’. Er, I’d rather look like the other one Justine Bateman.

  11. daisy424 says:

    Agree with CandyKay :wink:

  12. ktclear says:

    I TOTALLY agree – I used to have a subscription to RS but when Britney did her first underage/softcore porn fantasy with David LaChapelle photographing and Mom and manager approving it at 17, I decided that they sucked ass and stopped my subscription. Now, there’s no one that even comes close to writing anything culturally relevant, tantalizingly subversive or fantastically humorous. It’s all a bunch of crap, IMHO.

  13. Sue says:

    Courtney has good face days and bad face days.She looks like they pulled a little too much on her inner ponytail.She was never a beauty…but interesting…………

  14. Sue says:

    Stopped subscribing to Ms magazine because of their man-hating politics.

  15. paris herpes says:

    She’s only 15, how in the hell did she get to be an intern for Rolling Stone?! Oh yeah, nepotism is alive and well in the U.S. isn’t it?!

  16. Debby says:

    With a mother like that how else should this poor child act? As far as being a brat, hey she is probably just being 15. At home she probably has to be the Mommy to herself and to Courtney. :x

  17. fee says:

    Well I wouldnt be surprised if she is a total brat – children learn by example dont they? What a legacy she’s been left to live up to…. the ultimate 90′s icon and the total nutcase….

  18. jinx says:

    She interviews well, very articulate and sharp for a 15 year old. It’s an intern position, not editing the damn thing. Of course children of icons get a break there. I don’t understand the surprise at this, it’s a Jann Wenner flagship zine and he probably loves Courtney and has known Frances since birth.

  19. poopie says:

    She is borrowing her mother’s ‘brat crown’….

    and yes!!! tina yothers!! i KNEW she reminded me of someone!

  20. gg says:

    Has Frances had a boob job?? The contours look oddly solid, very high up. I certainly hope it’s just caused by taping them.

  21. Nan says:

    Look! The drunky didn’t post on this thread either. I still like drunky anyway.

    Frances looks just like her dad. That’s a good thing. I have no problem w/looking at her. Rumer Willis…now that’s a problem.

  22. british bitch says:

    Courtneys nose has been walloped hard. It´s crooked. Frances is a little strange looking, she doesn´t look like her mother at all. I think she may have had a boob job though. I hope the girl has the sense to side step her parents potholes.

  23. rachel says:

    o she looks exactly like kurt

  24. merengue says:

    she is a mother before giving birth like all children of addicts. Frances will suffer from post-traumatic stress syndrome, like a war veteran, after she detaches from her crackhead mom.

    It doesn’t matter what kind of plastic surgery Courtney Love gets; she is still not an attractive woman and the heroin look will never leave her face…
    guess it’s best never to try heroin lest you be left with that bloated waxy look

  25. rosesmatch says:

    She’s gorgeous, but it pisses me off that she’s such an attention seeker. Just look at her birthday pics!
    Guess she gets that from the mother.

  26. miss misery says:

    Yeah that attention seeking is kind of annoying. Just like all those girls at my school (I’m 18).

    But I do think Frances is pretty. And Courtney used to be pretty before plastic surgery.
    And I don’t think Frances got a boob job!!! 8O My breasts look like that too and I didn’t have one. She’s just young, that’s all.

    Oh, I’d love to meet her.

  27. Jackie says:

    I think she was raised by her grandmother on Curt’s side.I think she will be okay.She interviews well.I know that child is in my prayers!!! I wish her the best.

    BTW- Leave Rumer alone, she is just a kid and you guys are just brutal.

  28. bean says:

    id like to stick my sack in frances’ eye, then give her the whole length up her pre pubescent ass, just to see her eyes water.

  29. greencardigan says:

    ummm…she was born in 1992, that makes her 17 not 15! Source: imdb

  30. carolyn says:

    Hey she has been through enough! She is a high profile person, but at least she is working… I love nirvana and whole, and I love her. She is beautiful and does not need to be picked at like her parents were. She is a different person altogether. Let her show her herself and be a bright star in her own way. To much negatively and it needs to stop. No one can live under that kind of pressure. Live strong for yourself!

    Fantastic information in your posting, I saw a report on television last week about this same thing and since I am going to be married in two weeks and the timing couldn’t have been better! thanks for the ideas!, I have bookmarked, thanks Ronnie Mavle

  32. Mel says:

    Trillion you are so right! I got speechless by the fact that someone would care about bigger boobs a month after her husband died. Such a pathetic Gold-digger she is! Frances would have the right to be the worst person on earth. She has been drugged from belly and has grown up with that excuse of a human being as a mother.
