We’re being inundated with ’90s nostalgia at the moment, so it’s a good thing Courtney Love has an endless supply of pseudo-shocking recollections about her time with Kurt Cobain. Today she explains how “Smells Like Teen Spirit” played into their first sexual encounter, and discusses the night they made Frances Bean. In an excerpt from the new book, I Want My MTV, Courtney says,

“The first time Kurt and I slept together was at a Days Inn in Chicago. We were having our first postcoital moment, and we’re watching MTV and the video came on. I pulled away from him, because it was his video, his moment, he was the king of the fucking 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. The next time I saw the video with him was at the Omni Northstar Hotel in Minneapolis. I’d flown there to fuck Billy Corgan, who still had lots of hair. 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. ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ was on MTV every five fucking minutes.”

Rumors have been swirling that Taylor Lautner is gay, and a GQ Australia reporter surmised that they must be true because he had dinner with Gus Van Sant and Dustin Lance Black, who are both openly gay. When asked if they guys hit on him, Taylor said, “No, definitely not. I think they know I’m straight.” That’s pretty surprising, because when a few heterosexual people have dinner together, they usually wind up banging by the end of the night. Those straight people just can’t keep their hands off each other! [E!]
