Courtney Love Can Say Smart Things and Make Good Decisions, Even About the Kurt Cobain Biopic

Courtney Love says and does many stupid things. There are far, far, too many examples across the Internet to back up this statement. Cataloging the emancipation of Frances Bean via Twitter and Facebook is just one example. There's also the time she broke into her boyfriend's house while high, but that was seven years ago, so I'll leave that alone.

But for all the Courtney Love haters in the world, sometimes this woman proves she has flashes of good judgment and taste. (Live Through This, anyone?) The latest example is her response to tabloid rumors that Robert Pattinson--also known as SparkleVamp, RPatz, and, to die-hard Twi-hards, as Edward Cullen--would play Kurt Cobain in an upcoming biopic. Here's what she told the Canadian Press:

"Isn't that so stupid, who would cast him? That's just wrong, no offense."

Thank you, Courtney Love. Thank you for saying that. Not to hate on Twilight, because that would invite some of the most angry Internet comments ever, but there is something intrinsically wrong about letting an actor most strongly associated with screaming teenage girls and eternal vampire love portray effing Kurt Cobain, a musician who embodied alternative culture. I'm sure RPatz is a perfectly talented actor, but it's like Mark Hamill and Luke Skywalker: anytime he's on film for the next 20 years, people will see Edward Cullen before anything else.

Maybe Love can ride this wave of smart decision-making for a few hours. Then again, if you ask me, smart decision-making would include not authorizing a Cobain biopic in the first place.
