Frances Bean at 15


Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain’s teenage daughter graced the March issue of Harper’s Bazaar. Frances Bean Cobain posed in a photo-spread for the magazine as Evita, and characters from Grease and Beauty and the Beast.

In the accompanying interview, 15 year old Frances discussed life as a daughter of a music legend.

“These people are fascinated by me, but I haven’t done anything,” she says. “If you’re a big Nirvana fan, a big Hole fan, then I understand why you would want to get to know me, but I’m not my parents.”

Without dismissing the accomplishments of her folks (her father was dead before she was 2), Cobain advises, “People need to wait until I’ve done something valid with my life.”

When asked if she planned to follow in her mother and father’s footsteps and go into music, Frances said she thought about photography and/or journalism, and might  do a summer internship at Rolling Stone.

    There is so much of her father in her face. Especially the eyes.

    I’m rollin at her Eva Peron shot. Gold star for the photographer on that.

    It’s unfortunate that like Rumer Willis she inherited a man jaw. Although maybe man jaw isn’t the right description since she got it from her mom. I don’t know why I’m being so critical – I think I’m annoyed by the ‘there’s no reason to be fascinated by me’ comments next to the fashion pics. You can’t act all surprised and ‘who me?’ about the attention and exploit it at the same time lame-o.

    I love FB!

    she is a beautiful girl. Hopefully she doesn’t grow up like her mom.

    How is it possible Courtney Love raised such a level-headed kid?

  • silly February 11, 2008, 1:21 pm

    she is so pretty.

    and thats hardly a man jaw, she has a heart shaped face like her mom. well before the plastic surgery anyway

  • Darth Paul February 11, 2008, 2:30 pm

    RubberSoul- Courtney did NOT raise her. FBC’s grandparents did. But given what those grandparents produced, I’d withhold praise until 10yrs have passed.

  • Mr_Alyk February 11, 2008, 5:20 pm

    at least she realizes she hasn’t done anything to deserve the attention

  • Camile February 11, 2008, 6:53 pm

    she already has her father’s attitude

  • CocoabutteR February 11, 2008, 7:17 pm

    Rolling Stone? Corporate magazines still suck.

  • jill February 12, 2008, 12:01 am

    Wow, she’s so self aware. She could teach famous for nothing kids of celebs a thing or two.

  • VanexxaTron February 12, 2008, 12:42 am

    Self aware or maybe just calculating. Every 15 year old I knew, know, was is a manipulative twat.

  • in shock! February 12, 2008, 11:47 am

    WOW! She is down to earth and I’m lovin it!! I was expecting her to be a total brat but she gettin nuthin but props from me. She knows she hasn’t done anything and doesn’t expect anything, amazing for a celeb-kid, totally shocked!!

  • Steve February 21, 2008, 3:44 am

    Wow, Ta2dMom was right… she definitely has Kurt’s eyes. It breaks my heart that she’ll never get to know what a wonderful person he was.

  • Em February 24, 2008, 10:01 pm

    I love the fact that she is smart enough to realize that she has to do something to deserve the spotlight and not just rest on the fact the she is the daughter of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love…it shows that she is a very level headed person …..she’ll go far in her life if she keeps this mindset up …

  • hurther February 25, 2008, 3:03 pm

    Wow, i am a die hard Nirvana fan, and yet i am only 16, ever since i started listening to nirvana all i could think about is why he would leave you behind with Coutney Love, you are beautiful and you are very level headed! You really do have your fathers eyes! but i think you should at least take pride in the fact that your father was one of the greatest singers ever!!

  • noodles March 26, 2008, 3:02 pm

    just another twat getting it on a plate.

  • ~:D~ March 27, 2008, 7:37 am

    It’s funny, but because she has no ego, and doesn’t want to be like every other celebrity kid and bring out an album just because she can, she’s got such a good reception!!

    She is so beautiful!!! I read before that because of the media she’s weight-conscious, she doesn’t need to be at all! She has the perfect figure!

  • Northen Downpour March 27, 2008, 7:47 pm

    Wow, she’s so amazingly beautiful!
    Seriously, so hot… LOL XD
    And she seems like an amazing person!!

    SEEE! Courtney isn’t so bad, guys!! She raised Frances to be just fine. <3

  • Kurt's lover March 29, 2008, 11:09 am

    Frances seems to be mature until now. I am one of those who love her for who her dad was, as it is Frances, u r a prolongation of Kurt in my eyes! I did not like Courtney at all but lately i have realised Frances adores her and yeah so did Kurt… Courtney says she has given up on drugs and has been clean for about a year or so just to be there for Frances. I wish them the best. Kurt would had been very proud of his missy.
