These people are fascinated by me, but I haven't done anything.  I'm famous by default.  I came out of the womb and people wanted to know who I was because of my parents.  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.  People need to wait until I've done something valid with my life.

Frances Bean Cobain (born August 18, 1992) is an American visual artist, and only child of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and Hole frontwoman Courtney Love.

Happy birthday to my unorthodox/free spirited mother @Courtney thanks for teaching me to embrace creativity&survive
  • I'd like to thank my parents for providing me with a high IQ & I'd like to thank my grams for encouraging me not to be a self absorbed idiot
  • Two out of my three cats follow me around like furry little stalkers. It's such a nice ego boost.
  • Attempting to be a people pleaser is a fruitless task so, fuck it.
  • Constantly battling with sabretooth tigers and fluid drained lighters.

"Frances Bean Cobain on Life After Kurt's Death: An Exclusive Q&A" (2015)[edit]

My dad was exceptionally ambitious.  But he had a lot thrown on him, exceeding his ambition.  He wanted his band to be successful.  But he didn't want to be the fucking voice of a generation.
Frances Bean Cobain as quoted by David Fricke, "Frances Bean Cobain on Life After Kurt's Death: An Exclusive Q&A", Rolling Stone (8 April 2015).
  • "Kurt got to the point where he eventually had to sacrifice every bit of who he was to his art, because the world demanded it of him," Frances says bluntly at one point.  "I think that was one of the main triggers as to why he felt he didn't want to be here and everyone would be happier without him."

    But "in reality, if he had lived," she goes on, "I would have had a dad.  And that would have been an incredible experience."

  • It paints a portrait of a man attempting to cope with being a human.
  • No.  I would have felt more awkward if I'd been a fan.  I was around 15 when I realized he was inescapable.  Even if I was in a car and had the radio on, there's my dad.  He's larger than life and our culture is obsessed with dead musicians.  We love to put them on a pedestal.  If Kurt had just been another guy who abandoned his family in the most awful way possible…  But he wasn't.  He inspired people to put him on a pedestal, to become St. Kurt.
    • Response to the question, "Did you feel awkward as a teenager, not being that interested in the music Kurt made?"
  • The hardest part of doing anything creatively is just getting up and doing.  Once I get out of bed and get into my art room, I start painting.  I'm there.  And I'm doing it.
