The latest issue of New York Magazine has an excerpt from the upcoming book I want My MTV: The Uncensored Story of the Music Video Revolution, and who better to chat about Kurt Cobain's famous "Smells Like Teen Spirit" video than Courtney Love?
Love told the authors about the first time she and Cobain slept together, at a Days Inn in Chicago:
- "We were having our first post-coital moment, and we're watching MTV and the video [Smells Like Teen Spirit] came on. I pulled away from him, because it was his video, his moment, he was the king of the f***ing world, and he put his arm around me and pulled me closer. Which was symbolic, like, 'I'm letting you into my life. That really endeared him to me.'"
Love also reveals that, the next time she saw Cobain, at a hotel in Minneapolis, it wasn't on purpose.
- "I'd flown there to f*** Billy Corgan ... I didn't even know Nirvana were playing that night. Kurt and I wound up at the Northstar, and our daughter, Frances, was basically made that night."
Authors Craig Marks and Rob Tannenbaum interviewed more than 400 people about the "golden age" of music videos -- 1981 to 1992.
Cobain and Love married in 1992.
