With Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love as parents, the avenues Frances Bean Cobain could travel will be fascinating to watch. Grunge’s perfect child spoke to Harper’s Bazaar recently and admits she could not be further from them in style of substance.
A few interesting insights from the interview:
“I get it, I really do,” she says of the attention famous last names garner, “but at the same time it’s creepy.”
“These people are fascinated by me, but I haven’t done anything,” she says. “If you’re a big Nirvana fan, a big Hole fan, then I understand why you would want to get to know me, but I’m not my parents.”
Looks as if this celebutaune is keenly aware of fame thrown on her was not necessarily earned. “People need to wait until I’ve done something valid with my life,” she said.
Her version of success appears to be more the Broadway stage than the rock arena. After growing up devouring musicals, her mother tells the magazine her aspirations are hardly a surprise.
“Frances grew up on musicals. I think musicals comfort her,” Love said. “She’s a gay man trapped in a woman’s body, like me.”
Frances is taking her time finding that avenue, but comprehends the attention. ‘I’m taking my time,” she says. “But I get asked what I want to do all the time because of my parents, because of the life I live.”
