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.

I've been volunteering with the clean up efforts every weekend and I have never seen any celebs here. Courtney and every celeb please help us. People are living in toxic rotted homes with no FEMA trailers. Please roll up your sleeves and provide direct assistance with supplies. All the fanfare on TV with the celebs mugging on the camera will not solve this problem.

The real fact, and not what TMZ tells you, is that they were all playing together and someone other than the three of them said because it's the first time Dave and Krist has performed together for many years, "This like a Nirvana reunion." Suddenly it got blown out of whack to the point where it seems like one of the three said it. None of them said it. So quit believing everything you read or hear on this site and stop getting so upset over nothing. Half of you sound nuttier that C. Love. And yeah Kurt may have liked Lennon more because of his political views and somewhat harsh lyrics, and actually so do I, and didn't like McCartney's "Silly Love Songs". But Lennon ain't here and I believe Paul, who has written many great songs during his career, will be just fine playing a tune with those other lads.

McCartney is wayyyy too dorky to do Nirvana songs. It's almost funny to visualize.

Who gives a crap what Courtney Love thinks? Not sure she gets to dictate whether other band members work with others? Although I agree I would rather they back John.

I don't care how rich and powerful you are Courtney. You still sick. BTW there are two musicians living in Brooklyn who claim to be your people. They owe my daughter rent. I raised her to despice you. Sorry you don't impress me. She was foolish enough to think they would pay rent.never liked you never will . Sorry if it wasn't for Kurt you'd have been dead long ago like Kristin.

Courtney Love needs to STFU and go go off somewhere and do drugs alone in a dark, depressing hotel room. If anybody has been riding that Cobain's coattails, it's her. She's an ugly, tacky, talentless fraud.
