Courtney Love is the authority on pretty much nothing. However, one area in which she might have some degree of expertise is her home life with late husband Kurt Cobain. Today is the 18th anniversary of the day the Nirvana frontman took his own life and, as such, plenty of fans, admirers or just curious speculators have been left to wonder what exactly he would be up to were he alive today.
"We'd probably live on the Upper West fuckin' Side now and have three fuckin' kids," Love speculated in a 2011 interview with Everybody Loves Our Town author Mark Yarm. "We might even have a divorce, like both be on our third marriage. I don't fuckin' know. He might be a playwright, [or have] his latest show in MoMA ...
"I'd have a 16-year-old son and be his model wife. Given the money that is involved here, we could probably have had a fuckin' yacht. We could have gone open marriage at some point. I don't fuckin' know."
These vignettes of domestic splendor run contrary to an interview she gave to Vanity Fair last year, in which she claimed that if Cobain were to come back today "I'd fucking kill him. I'd fuck him, and then I'd kill him."
