Courtney Love

"Not Amused"

by Sir Paul & Nirvana

EXCLUSIVE

1212_courtney_love_paul-mccartney_gettyWhen Nirvana reunites tonight in NYC -- with Sir Paul McCartney replacing Kurt Cobain on vocals -- Courtney Love won't be cheering ... she'll be yelling obscenities, because she's pissed about the gig.

Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic are playing at the 12-12-12 benefit concert at Madison Square Garden -- their first show together in 20 years -- but Cobain's widow tells TMZ she is "not amused" about Paul's involvement.

Courtney is clearly more of a Lennon fan, than McCartney because she added ... "Look, if John were alive it would be cool."

Love is also upset at Krist and Dave for calling tonight's show a Nirvana reunion because she says Kurt was the heart and soul of the legendary band.

For the record ... Sir Paul and the guys will be playing a brand new song they wrote together. It's unclear if they will cover classic Nirvana songs.

What makes me really pissed is that they asked someone who didn't even know who Nirvana was before being asked...I love Paul McCartney, I love the Beatles, but ****. Why couldn't Dave call up a modern rock singer that would actually fit the feel of the band?

You know Courtney isn't looking too good when you see her pic and think it's a bad pic of the woman who plays Alan and Charlie's mother on Two and a half men

I wish this vapid whore would just shut her hole. She's been riding on Kurt's fame for two decades now. If it wasn't for her association with him, no one would know her name.
If she was any sort of decent person, she'd have seen the troubles he was having and helped him, instead of buying him more heroin.

It's amazing how Courtney Love is still alive she did this statement while standing at a stairwell thinking they are escalators "they're broken"

It's too bad she's not addicted to more calming drugs. She is always so aggressive.

Holy **** she has fans!? You people must be on more drugs then she is. Her daughter hates her, the other band mates hate her. She's like crabs.

She has absolutely nothing to do with Nirvana. Just like Yoko Ono has nothing to do with the Beatles.

Who cares. This bitch is just the widdow of the lead singer, that commented suicide. I don't see why she always has to put her two cents in f*cking everything this band does. It was never hers. The band mates have more of a right than she ever will, actually I don't think she should have any. Damn already. All those members of the band matter as much as Kurt and she should be thankful that they are still playing and bringing up Nirvana, so this generation of toned deaf morons, will get a taste of what good actual music is.

I can't wait to hear Paul growl the words " rape me". Think he even owns a distortion pedal? Hell no! This will just be more of grohls sell out crap. At least krists fat butt will be there for some street credibility.
