Courtney Love tells GQ that Kurt Cobain had a huge penis

Pin it

Nirvana underwater.

Leave it to Courtney Love to commemorate the twentieth anniversary of Nirvana's Nevermind by talking about Kurt Cobain's penis. The people at GQ, of all places, seem to be the only ones who remembered the occasion (where are you when we need you, Matt Pinfield?) and did a good job rounding up enough Nirvana-era notables to offer a pretty interesting oral history of the band.  

And then in comes the former lead singer of Hole to give her two cents:

Kurt had more presence and more beauty than Brad Pitt — who wanted to play Kurt, by the way. He was a leader, he was strong — in fact he was well fucking hung, if you really want to know.

Okay! Now that that's out of the way, what else can you tell us about your deceased husband?

[Crickets chirping]

Thanks, Love! No, we're just kidding, it's not her fault — the crickets are the result of GQ's cunning "we're not putting this whole thing online, so you'll have to buy the damned magazine to read the rest — that is, if you even know where things like that are sold" business model. We can say, though, that Love (as well as others) do indeed have insightful things to say about the ol' 'Vana (no?). But if you want to see more of the band without donating money to a print magazine, GQ's web folks were nice enough to put up a pretty slideshow of the band over here. It's like a nice little time warp back to the early nineties.
