Courtney Love Goes Crazy on Activision via Twitter

http://www.aeropause.com

Recently, it was announced by Activision that they were bringing the likeness of Kurt Cobain to the Guitar Hero 5 title, which creeped me out when I read it. I mean, do we really need to see Kurt Cobain belting out Public Enemy or Elton John hits. Well, Mrs. Kurt Cobain does not think so.

As of this morning, Courtney Love has been posting on her Twitter feed all morning, railing into Activision, swearing up and down that she did not approve his likeness for the game, and that Kurt Cobain would hate Guitar Hero. While I am not totally sure who controls the Kurt Cobain estate, I would assume that Courtney Love would have some say in his matters, considering she was his spouse at the time of his death. And yes, she is threatening Activision with a lawsuit. Check the jump for some of the jucier bits, which are very hard to grab out of her stream of consciousness.

Activision: Courtney Love Signed Cobain Contract for Guitar Hero 5 UPDATE

http://kotaku.com

In the wake of Courtney Love's bombastic vitriol over the appearance of her late husband in Guitar Hero 5, Activision tells Kotaku that she was the one who signed the agreement for the deal.

"Guitar Hero secured the necessary licensing rights from the Cobain estate in a written agreement signed by Courtney Love to use Kurt Cobain's likeness as a fully playable character in Guitar Hero 5," Activision told Kotaku today.

Last night Love posted on her Twitter account that she and Cobain's Estate were going to sue "the shit out of Activision". She went on to write: "For the record this Guitar Hero shit is breach of contract on a Bullys part and there will be a proper addressing of this and retraction."

Later that night Love added that while she had looked at an avatar for Cobain, she had asked the developers to "show her a better avatar, to drag my heels," adding that she never intended to allow Cobain to appear in the game.

We've contacted Love's personal manager and the agency who handles her interviews, but have not yet heard back.
