Courtney Love Reads Hate Mail About Her and Kurt Cobain in ‘Montage’ Clip
"Your story in April's 'Sassy' about Kurt Cobain and that Courtney hag truly made me want to vomit"
Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck is out in select theaters now, and will premiere on HBO come May 4. Until then, viewers can kick back with a new clip from the film, which has surfaced online. The home movie portrays a telling scene, in which Cobain and his then-wife are hanging out in their L.A. apartment (also known as the one that’s currently listed on Airbnb) reading an angry letter to the editor reacting to the couple’s now-famous Sassy cover.
As Love reads the letter out loud, the camera hones in on Cobain, who’s all dolled up in a dress, mustache, and lipstick, mouthing Love’s words, which are apparently written by a Nirvana superfan who calls Cobain a “God of love in human form” and herself a “Kurt slave.” (Geeze. Kinda gives Facebook commenters a run for their money, eh?) Watch the clip above, look out for Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck on May 4 on HBO, and read SPIN’s interview with the film’s director, Brett Morgen, here.
