Frances - 08/97
Lost somewhere in the dust of her parent's neverending media hype, Frances
Bean Cobain, the only child of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, remains the object of
innocence in the midst of chaos. One can only wonder what kind of effect Kurt's
sudden and tragic death had on this poor child... perhaps she barely remembers?
This story comes from a friend of mine. Her Aunt was Frances' Nanny during the
time in which Courtney Love was filming "The People VS Larry Flynt" (after Kurt's
death). Let's call this Aunt... Suzanne.
Suzanne was living in Seattle when hired by Courtney Love. Suzanne was
provided with her own living quarters at the Cobain Estate, though she remained
living at home with her own family. It was her job to keep Frances occupied and
entertained for days at a time.
Suzanne invited her niece (my friend) to come visit. During her stay, my friend
was allowed to spend lots of time with Frances, playing and romping. She says
Frances was full of energy and a happy kid. Frances tugged on her and said
"come here, come here!" Frances took her to a portrait of Kurt hanging on a wall,
there was an urn with Kurt's ashes in it sitting on a shelf in front of the portrait.
Frances pointed and happily declared "that's my daddy!"
Moments like these don't phase children like they do adults. For Frances, she
couldn't be happier to announce "that's my daddy!" While at the same time, for
an adult to see a child make such an innocent remark is truly touching. There is
no malicious twist to this story, in fact, that's all there is to say.
Fans come in all shapes and sizes, but there is one thing they all have in
common: they all want to meet that ONE celebrity that has had the greatest
impact on their lives. This next story happened to my ex-boyfriend. Let's call
George was living in Fresno, California. He was guitarist in a teenage garage
band (Nirvana being their biggest inspiration). They managed to get themselves
a gig at a bar. They played their songs and sat down at the bar. One of the bar's
employees walks onto the stage and announces that "Nirvana is here, and they
want to play some songs". George dropped his beer and immediately began
asking his friends if they heard the same thing he heard. Sure enough, Kurt, Chris,
and Dave performed three or four songs. (George was practically shitting his pants
right about now!)
After the show, Kurt was bombarded with fans asking for his autograph and
what not, but George remained cool and stayed at the bar. Kurt then appears at
his side to order a drink.
"Hey man, what's your name?" Kurt asks.
"George. It's nice to finally meet you, Kurt."
"George... I'll remember that. Hey, want to go in the back and smoke a bowl?"
Well, there's not much left to say except that they proceeded to the back of
the bar and smoked some pot. I try not to find the excitement in the fact that he
got to do drugs with Kurt Cobain, but more like the honor of getting to just hang
out with Kurt Cobain, not to ask him tons of questions he has to answer all the
time, or to freak out and scare the guy away... but just to hang out.
