It seems like everyone is all in a fuss about Frances Cobain's Sweet 16 bash and how it was portrayed as a "suicidal 16" themed bash. I think she was just trying to say that she was kissing off childhood by saying RIP. People are saying it is insensitive to her father's memory. Well first of all, it is her father and only she knows what is right and what is wrong for her, and how she deals with that situation. I don't think any of us can tell her she should deal with that situation and whether she is right or wrong.
Now, what we can criticize is the fact that Courtney Love keeps selling off bits and pieces of Nirvana to anyone who will give her a few bucks and a carton of cigarettes. She always claims she is selling everything off because she has no money. Well, if she has no money, why did she drop $320,000 on the birthday? As far as I know it wasn't being filmed for My Super Sweet 16, and most of those parties don't even rack up that kind of bill. My math is shaky, but for that kind of money she could have bought Frances a $20,000 car for each of the 16 years she has been alive. Now that would be a pretty cool present. I just think that anyone who can drop that kind of money on a party that will be over in a few hours, really is not hurting for cash.
So, what do you think? OK for Frances to throw a RIP to childhood party? Do you think Courtney was ok to spend that kind of dough on a party while at the same time pleading poverty?
