Nirvana–The Musical?

Oh, what is that Courtney Love up to now? If one recent report is correct, she’s getting ready to revisit Kurt Cobain‘s legacy with a musical inspired by his early years in Nirvana. The news was broken by Britney Spears‘ former manager Sam Lutfi, who revealed Love’s plans in the Los Angeles courtroom where he’s involved in a defamation case against Spears’ mother.

It’s wise to take this news with a grain of salt for all sorts of reasons — not the least of which is the fact that Love was recently forced to hand over the rights to Cobain’s name, likeness and image to their daughter Frances Bean, thanks to the terms of a $2.75 million loan Love took against Frances’ trust in 2010. And even if that doesn’t prove a legal barrier on the project’s journey to the stage and screen, the whole thing seems unlikely given Love’s sporadic output over the last 15 years or so.
