As you may recall, Courtney Love is a crazy person. You may also recall that a few Muppets recited a few lines of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” in the recent Muppets movie. Put these two things together and what do you have? Courtney Love accusing the Muppets of having “raped” Kurt Cobain.
According to Love, she has absolute power when it comes to Cobain’s music being used for commercial purposes, though TMZ says she may have sold off half of her rights to a company called Primary Wave Music, who may have also been given the “exclusive right to distribute Nirvana’s entire catalog.” They go on to say that Primary Wave did approve the use in the Muppets movie, as did Dave Grohl (who has a cameo on the movie) and Krist Novoselic. It’s unclear if Love is also supposed to sign off in situations like this.
Here’s the scene that has Love’s panties in a proverbial wad…
primary wave is lying and i have shitty lawyers , this is courtney- synch rights are mine, primary wave does not own them= don’t take my word for it= disney corporate did not ask and diode not pay francesw nor me when i sold some writing to primary wave which was stupid, in 06 i did not sell administration rights they forged them and i sure as shit have combed over everything did not sell synch- last month larry at p wave was begging me for battleship- gatorade and dancing witht he stars and muppets all of which i said no to- no. its mine to say and not public opinion””’ it my and my daughters right and dave and krist have a grace note of 1.2 percent ofd a 100 in that song publishing that i begged kurt to let them have when he took his publishing back to himself as we wrote every single note- so yeah rape is a great word because its so insidious to do this and make me look ‘crazy’ on the lawyer owned tmz for declining it-= i said no i meant no and this makes me sick-= because i have shitty sadistic lawyers who i have just fired and grohl knew this- i never rated him as a total sociopath until i saw the nirvana inc portfolio – graveyards, us beef abattoirs and 1841 nirvana inc liens against one courtney love of memphis, blossom texas and etc that take money out of our bank account, hurts music company is end of music , krist murk slough i assumed daves was ‘roswell’ but thats just for foo fighters? no it isn’t it was for nirvana his 3 % out of all the oeuvre, so he has NO SAY,. his kid is named ‘violet’ and he si believe a sociopath on an entirely other level the daughter named ‘violet’ doh. he is obsessed not so much with me with his hatred of kurt- he knew kurt never wanted to be disneyfied, i know lisa henson very well and as gawker uyou should be slightly more responsible-= and not believe every piece of expoiltative bullshit you hear in fact this is an epic fucking scandal, and it hurts to think about it- well none want so to go after disney corporate just like none wants to go get a supoenas and find the liens coming out of the courtney love cobain comerica accounts front he over 60 account s that i don’t know about in there, including ‘suspense accounts’ that hold over 1000 fun entities per account, in 6 months 26,7 million was libeled that i sure as shut nor my daughter has, you guys are foolish=- take any celebrity or a woman with synchronization rights and pout it in muppets and guess what? she looks CRAZY FOR SAYING ‘NO’ TOP WHAT IS HERS?

I’m convinced that if Courtney Love wasn’t a famous person with resources she’d be in a straight jacket.
