Last night, presumably after leaving a séance with her coven of Instagram witches, Courtney Love left her iPhone in a yellow cab. Lucky for her, New York Times columnist and all around nice guy Frank Bruni found it, according to New York Magazine.
Instead of attempting to turn a profit on the black market for Ms. Love’s iPhone photos of rudimentary song lyrics scrawled on napkins, Mr. Bruni used the rock mom’s favorite medium, Twitter, to notify her that he’d found her precious phone.
Fashion Week Observed
Scott Lipps has been a busy man. Not only has the founder of One Management spent the last year representing models such as Petra Němcová, Poppy Delevingne, Bar Refaeli, Helena Christensen and Claudia Schiffer, but he has also expanded his music division and gone on tour with Courtney Love’s band, during which time he played in Europe to an audience of 60,000. That’s in addition to his regular vacations to exotic locales like St. Bart’s, the class he took in soufflé making, his weekly Interview magazine blog and, oh yes, his new book, Poplipps: Plus One, which hit shelves this week.
It was Wednesday, more than a week into the biannual cocktails-and-couture marathon. And though there’s still one more night, the bash for Olivier Zahm’s ultra hip magazine seemed like the grande finale. Read More
A few weeks before The Paris Review’s Spring Revel, the Transom asked Courtney Love if she would be in attendance to watch her grandmother, the novelist Paula Fox, accept the Hadada Award.
No, she would not.
“Paula’s absolute dislike of me is shocking and inexplicable,” Ms. Love told us.
The strained relationship is perhaps not Read More
Big Apple Idolatry
We’ve seen Stephen Dorff shill for E-Blu, but not one of the other very famous celebrities who vape have been willing to put their reputations on the line to be the face of electronic cigarettes.
Until today. Courtney Love has partnered up with NJOY to create an amazing 50-second spot that should delight anyone who is sick of those uptight, non-e-cig snobs. Or just likes to hear Ms. Love curse in a way that only the Hole singer can.
– We know: it’s getting dark earlier, the elections are tomorrow and we’re still suffering the fallout from last week’s hurricane. (Um, not to mention the nor’easter headed our way on Wednesday. FUN!) On the other hand, here are some videos of Tom Hanks being really confused on a German sketch show called Wetten Daas!
The tempestuous relationship between Frances Bean Cobain and her mother Courtney Love have been making headlines for as long as the now-19-year-old has been able to talk. (Her first word? ‘Adoption.’) Though the two have been able to occasionally set aside their differences and smile for the press, much more often we hear about the skirmishes: the hotel fights, the custody battles, and most recently, a Twitter skirmish in which Ms. Cobain asked the creators of micro-blogging platform to ban her mother once and for all.
But now the only daughter of Kurt Cobain finally has gained what might be the ultimate leverage on mommy dearest: the rights to her father’s likeness.

In a barrage of barely legible Tweets, Courtney Love recently (hysterically, sadly) told followers of her locked Twitter account that former Nirvana drummer and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl had “hit on” her 19 year-old daughter, Frances Bean Cobain. This is scandalous because Grohl was once the drummer in a band you may have heard of (Nirvana) with Ms. Cobain’s deceased father (Kurt Cobain).
In statement emailed by her representatives, Ms. Cobain—an artist who shows under the name Fiddle Tim—has denied her mother’s accusation, explaining:
Somewhere, a West Village landlord is popping champagne. Courtney Love, the terror of West 10th street, has packed up and moved out, the Daily News reports.
Yesterday, documents were released showing that in 2009, Francis Bean Cobain filed a restraining order against her mom, Courtney Love. This isn’t that unusual: restraining orders against Hollywood parents came as regularly as Xanax/Adderall/Whip-It prescriptions out in L.A.
But despite having a history of screaming matches in public places, Ms. Cobain (now 19) took out the restraining order against her mother not only for herself but for her dog as well, Uncle Fester.
