Frances Bean Cobain Searches For Some Sanity

Aug 28, 2010 11:45 AM


Frances Bean Cobain, who recently turned 18 and inherited 40% of her late father's multi-million dollar estate, was spotted landing at LAX toting Erich Fromm's The Sane Society.

With a mother like Courtney Love, who recently went off on her daughter via Twitter, we're not suprised FBC would be looking for a little sanity!

But she may find it in an unlikely place. Even though Frances is now free from her grandmother's custody, she's said to be moving in with her "bohemian grandmother": 60s Brit rocker Marianne Faithfull.

Even though she's got more than enough money to buy her own place in Paris, Frances is set to move into the singer's Parisian pad to concentrate on her art, says The Sun.

Looking dramatically thinner and with several new tattoos, Frances channeled the grunge style her parents made so famous in the 90s.

Frances, who still has a restraining order against her mother, has good timing. Her estranged mother Courtney Love is currently on a tour of Europe with her band, Hole.

Kurt and Courtney's not-so-little girl is all grown up and about to make her recording debut.

The album is apparently the debut of Evelyn Evelyn, who are made up of conjoined twin sisters (?).

Frances will be singing on a track called "MySpace," which, according to The Guardian features "gang vocals" featuring not only Cobain, but Weird Al Yankovic, Tegan and Sara, My Chemical Romance singer Gerard Way and Palmer's fiance, the writer Neil Gaiman.

The album will be released March 30th.

Well, it's not quiiiite as wacky as Court's but they certainly both love those floral tights!

Kurt Cobain may have made his reputation shying away from primadonna behavior - but that trait must have skipped a generation!

Page Six reports that Kurt's daughter Frances Bean, who landed a job working as Rolling Stone's summer aide, has been acting mighty divalicious on the job. An insider claims Cobain "doesn't get coffee for anyone . . . calls in sick all the time and wears funny outfits."

A Rolling Stone rep denied the story, calling Frances Bean "a great girl, and we're thrilled to have her."

What do you think - is Frances Bean the type to cop a rockstar 'tude?

Both Natalie Portman and Keira Knightley have shilled for Chanel.
