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

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.

AT&T Launches iPhone MMS September 25

Sweet Jesus, AT&T just told us that MMS for iPhone launches September 25. Which is emphatically not summer. It'll be coming via software update for iPhone 3G and 3GS (remember, old iPhones are getting left out).

AT&T admits they're late, saying "it was important to give our customers a positive experience from day one" so they needed the extra to "to make sure our network is ready to handle what we expect will be a record volume of MMS traffic." Which I think means if MMS doesn't work, everybody can ream the shit out of them for it. At least it's free.

The wait for tethering continues though, with "no set date." They simply "expect to offer it in the future." Again, 'cause the network isn't ready: "This function could exponentially increase traffic on the network, and we need to ensure that some of our current upgrades are in place before we can deliver the expanded functionality with the excellent performance that customers expect."

America's New It Couple Kiss and Tell on Larry King Live

Unless you've been squatting in a partially-developed Williamsburg condo building, surely you've heard the news of the torrid Levi Johnston/Kathy Griffin affair currently taking the nation by storm. Tonight, Kathy and Levi dished on their hot Teen Choice Awards date.

Frankly, this may have been the most entertaining segment on Larry King Live since the fossilized lizard himself gave Marlon Brando a handjob on the air. Between Griffin's steady barrage of sexual innuendo, thinly veiled references to post-date Levi-banging, combined with Levi's seemingly endless "aw shucks" blushes and sheepish grins, this was fun television from beginning to end. Long live Kathy and Levi. May the white-hot flame of their love never be extinguished.
