Courtney Love plans to hold a Christie’s auction (at a date to be announced) of Kurt Cobain’s possessions, website Spinner.com reports. At first, Love doesn’t exactly sound like the sentimental type: “[My house] is like a mausoleum. My daughter [14-year-old Frances Bean] doesn’t need to inherit a giant Hefty bag full of flannel f—ing shirts … A sweater, a guitar and the lyrics to ‘Teen Spirit’ — that’s what my daughter gets. And the rest of it we’ll just f—ing sell.” But in the end, she proves she is: “I still wear his pajamas to bed,” she said. “How am I ever going to go form another relationship in my lifetime wearing Kurt’s pajamas?”
Do you think, PopWatchers, that Christies (and Love’s statement that she’ll donate some of the proceeds to charity) will add class and dignity to a sale that, to skeptics, might look like another crass attempt to cash in on her husband’s legacy? And will you be bidding?
